I miss Android

Late last year I received an Apple Watch as a Christmas gift from my father. At the time I was planning on switching back to Android, but having received the Apple Watch I was pretty much stuck with the iPhone. I couldn’t simply sell the watch even if I sold it at retail price because it has sentimental value. Regardless of the fact that I never wanted or needed an Apple Watch, selling it would make me feel bad because my father had bought it for me. And for that reason, when my contract ended I decided to upgrade to the iPhone SE (all of the reasons are explained in my review) in order to continue using the Apple Watch. All that being said, I still find myself using countless Google apps and envying Android users who have better Google apps in addition to the customization options. Continue reading “I miss Android”

I got my first smartphone in 2013. It was a Samsung Galaxy S4. It seems ancient now, but back then it was one of the top flagship smartphones to own. It had a Snapdragon 600 processor, 1080p Full HD display and a 13MP camera all while running Android Jellybean and then eventually KitKat. It was fast and everything worked well. Then a year later it became problematic. My phone turned off by itself, the screen would freeze and it lagged like crazy. The phone was almost unusable. A year later, Sprint was offering to pay for early termination fees and so it was the perfect opportunity for me to switch over from Verizon and buy an iPhone 5s. To this day I still own one and it works well, but I’m tempted to go back to Android. Here, I’ll explain my top three reasons why! Continue reading “Why I’m Going Back To Android!”

iPhone SE? My Thoughts, 3 Months Later

iphonese-select-2016

Roughly 3 months ago, Apple released the iPhone SE for everyone to buy. For tech enthusiasts like myself, it was pretty much forgettable. There wasn’t really anything new about it. It had the body of a 2-3 year old iPhone 5/5S and the internal specs of an iPhone 6, minus a downgrade in the front facing camera and improved Touch ID sensor. It was certainly a good, usable phone, but it wasn’t necessarily groundbreaking. Continue reading “iPhone SE? My Thoughts, 3 Months Later”
