I decided to try Android after frustration with iOS, particularly with autocorrect. Nothing has changed there, however, I have given Google Pixel a go and it too has its sore points for me.
I do wonder if i had have invested a few hundred extra for the Samsung Galaxy S series phone whether my experience might be different, however, the Pixel 6’s screen was a particular bugbear. If I turned on adaptive screen brightness it would fluctuate poorly indoors but perform better outfits, however, turn the feature off and manually set brightness and you couldn’t see anything on-screen outdoors.
One feature I really liked was messages and its ability to send messages at a later date, such a useful feature which I wish were implemented on iOS. Its ability to handle spam texts too was similarly appreciated. Though iOS has a feature for hiving off such messages it’s not as nice, nor is iOS good as handling spam callers of which I’ve had several this year.
Ultimately I’ve decided to return today to iPhone for several reasons, inability to communicate with my niece, hardware, and that Apple tie-in with many devices already owned in lax to lose. I’ll not get rid of my Pixel just yet, just in case frustrations overtake reasons for returning.
Funny enough, in the short time I’ve been on Android I’ve already forgotten gestures and locations of things. How quickly we adjust, hey.
