Why I’m not switching from Apple’s iPhone to an Android phone

“Many prominent tech writers get lots of attention by writing about how they’re switching from the iPhone to Android,” Ben Bajarin writes for TIME Magazine. “I know several of these individuals and speak with other writers frequently, and so thought an interesting angle to explore would be the reasons why I’m not switching to Android.”

“To lay the groundwork for my points you need to understand that I have in my possession all the flagship Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices,” Bajarin writes. “I’ve tried and tested them all, using them as my primary phones for a period of time in order to form an opinion. I’m aware of the fact that this is a luxury not all have. Still, my conclusion is that they aren’t for me.”

Bajarin writes, “My choice to stick with the iPhone has everything to do with how productive I can be with iOS while mobile. Whenever I use an Android phone as my primary phone (or a Windows Phone, or the BlackBerry devices), I feel a profound drop in my productivity.”

  1. That was one boring article.

    But he got his hits. When writers need to get hits what do they do? Put Apple or iPhone in a title. Disparage Apple etc…. Heck putting Steve Jobs still works in a title.

  2. It’s funny that I’ve read your post on an Android phone with all you have just mentioned, an aluminium shell, truly fantastic battery life and that has not given me a single issue in the few months I’ve owned it.

    When I compare this to the iPad that I had to troubleshoot yesterday that somehow lost all memory retention while in use and had to be factory reset I can say that I do not regret my choice.
