Did you switch from Android to iPhone 7 on Black Friday? Tell me why!

Did you take advantage of Black Friday or Cyber Monday to make the switch from Android to iPhone? If so, was it the deal alone that finally promoted you to take action, or was it something else? I'd love to know the reason why!

Every quarter, Apple claims more people than ever are switching from Android to iPhone. What we don't know, though, is from which Android phones and why. Last month Apple released iPhone 7. Meanwhile, Samsung had to recall the Galaxy Note 7, and Google nixed new Nexus in favor of iPhone-looking Pixels. So...

I'm wondering if any of that — or any other reason — prompted you to make the switch from Android to iPhone? Previously the new big and bigger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus had many of you making the switch. Conversely, the launch of the smaller but still powerful iPhone SE has more than a few making the shrink-grade.

Enter iPhone 7...

Now there's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with industry-leading A10 Fusion processors, amazing new cameras, including a dual-camera system on iPhone 7 Plus, wide gamut color from capture to display, and long sought-after water resistance.

There's also iOS 10, which Apple once agains showed they could ship to hundreds of millions of compatible iPhones, in every region, on every carrier, all at the same time — including security updates. As well as Apple Watch and Apple TV compatibility, including new cross-device features like auto-unlock for Mac and Apple Pay for Safari. They all work together to make the a whole that's far more valuable than any part.

...Exit Android

If you made the switch from Android to iPhone recently, let me know which Android phone you switched from and what caused you to make the switch? Was it one or more of the reasons above or was it something else entirely?
