“Had I taken my Android vacation two years ago, it might have ended a whole lot differently,” Michael Simon writes for Macworld. “Back then, Apple was still trying to convince us of the benefit of thumb-to-screen ratio, and if I would have used the 4.9-inch Nexus 5 for a month, I’m not sure I would have switched my SIM back so quickly.”
“To be honest, I don’t really want to go back to my iPhone 6 now. My time with the Nexus 6P has convinced me of the benefit of so-called phablets, and as soon as it’s available I’m preordering an iPhone 7 Plus,” Simon writes. “But while I loved the physical size and the overall craftsmanship of my Nexus phone, I simply didn’t enjoy using it as much as I do my iPhone.”

MacDailyNews Take: Now to be fair, this is only because Android is an inferior product peddled to cheapskate tech illiterates who do not value their privacy and/or who are unable to recognize a half-assed knockoff from the revolutionary original.

It’s a fragmented morass. It’s too many cooks in the kitchen. It’s crap-by-committee, lowest common denominator junk. Anyone who rewards blatant thieves by settling for Android garbage deserves their fate.
iOS is to Android as a world class chef is to a kitchen full of McDonald’s fry cooks.
And, yes, once you go to Apple’s flagship 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus, you’ll never want to go back.
