Switching from iPhone to HTC One/Android...anyone done it?

 Switching from iPhone to HTC One/Android...anyone done it?
topic by Deuterion - 08-05-2013, 02:30 PM - Boxden > BX Tech


Hello,

I have iOS 7 and after using it I've come to realize that it's the same ol' OS with a little gloss and at this point I'm bored with it. iOS is just too basic of and OS and I think the HTC One is the perfect phone to move to because it's not a cheap piece of crap like the Galaxy line of phones so I won't be sacrificing build quality off top. As far as the software is concerned I think it's leagues ahead of iOS but everyday use is something else. So my question is...

Who has made the switch and how has been for you? Do you regret it? Do you think you'll ever go back to iOS? Thanks!

I'm planning on making my decision once I see what the iPhone 5S is about.

Do you miss the customer service at all? That's something that has got me kinda concerned plus not getting any of the future updates on my phone.

went from the iPhone 4 to the HTC One

had the HTC for a couple days it's cool and all, but I'm just used to the iPhone. Copped the 5 after a couple days

I had trouble putting my music and #### on it & once again Im just used to the iPhone

It's depends on you tho, I suggest going into the store and playing around with the phone first.

Don't get me wrong it's a cool good phone, in my opinion.

Keep us updated on what you do

I did.

It was good at first...Y.G. helped me get started with a bunch of sites/apps to get me started.

I did the whole 9...root/rom/kernel/adjusting voltage and everything in between. You name it, I did it with my phone...outside of actually developing for it.

I got my phone September of last year, and I was running custom ROMs for a while...I tried all the main ones. I am currently on stock touchwhiz...because there is NO ROM that is 100% st@ble. They are cool, they speed up the phone tremendously, improve battery life...but its with a cost that wasn't worth it to me.

Do not believe anyone when it comes to ROMs and how st@ble something is. You have to try it yourself.

My battery is complete #### now and the phone is just bogged down and slow as #### (because I use touchwhiz (no launcher)). But it's st@ble aside for some apps from the playstore. I use a different messaging app because the default messaging app of touchwhiz sucks that much a$s.

I've been out of the loop a bit but I've read that this is an issue with android...as time goes on it just gets slower...even with stock android ie last years nexus 7.

I wouldn't steer you or anyone away from trying android. This is just my experience. Maybe you'll have a better one with the HTC one.

I was in the same boat as you...bored with iOS... wanted to try Android since it hit 4.0 which was supposed to be super fluid...etc... but everyones experience is different just as everyones needs are.

I'm personally just waiting for the 5s to come out and I'll be getting that. I was pondering the HTC one for a while but I'm glad I didn't get it.
