Did you switch from Android to iPhone? Tell us why!

One of the biggest areas of iPhone growth continues to be people switching from Android. Whether they go for something inexpensive at first, aren't happy with it, and so go iPhone next, or if they simply want something different from the last Android flagship, switchers comprise an increasingly large and important part of the iPhone customer base.

Here's what Apple's CEO, Tim Cook had to say a couple of weeks ago:

[We] continue to see a very high level of customers switching to iPhone from Android and other operating systems. In fact, we added more switchers from Android and other platforms in the first half of this year than any other six-month period ever.

That made me curious. We've asked about switching to iPhone before. Back then, one of the primary reasons was the new big and bigger display sizes of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Those have been around for over eighteen months, though. So, the pent-up demand may no longer be so pent up. There are, however, some other things that have changed:

  • Apple released iPhone 6s with a 12-megapixel camera and 4K video.
  • Apple shipped a 4-inch iPhone with the same camera but a much smaller profile.
  • Apple unveiled the Apple Watch and new Apple TV, both of which can make iPhone more compelling.
  • Apple once again upgraded all iPhones to the latest software, once again going back to 2011, once again all at once.
  • Android vulnerabilities like Stagefright got a lot of media attention.
  • Compelling new apps, updates, and/or features that came to iPhone first.

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 something else entirely?

  • I switched from the Nexus 6P to the 6S Plus. The bigger screen, the apps going to Apple first, the ease of use were all factors. The ability to FaceTime and the Apple Watch all played a big part as well. I still have the 6P but haven't turned it on in over a month. I'll probably sell it on Swappa. Loving the 6S Plus!!
  • The 6P has a 5.7 screen. The 6S Plus has a 5.5 screen. Sent from the iMore App
  • I didn't mean a bigger screen than the 6P. I meant bigger than previous iPhones..
  • I did it the other way. From iPhone 6s plus to Nexus 6p and man is Android better in everything. True missing my apple watch but moto 360 is cheaper and smarter
  • Are you saying that apple ecosystem made you switch than the device itself? You were not sure of it before buying 6p?
  • I've been back-and-forth between Android and iPhone (and Windows Phone as well) over the last few years, so I don't really have an allegiance to any one brand.
    Most recently I was on a Nexus 5X and liked it, but I picked up an iPad Air 2 during all of the sales and remembered how much I enjoyed using iOS and iMessage. I love having the OTA updates the day Apple announces them (no sideloading required). We have a Mac Mini as well - so that really pushed me to sell the Nexus 5X and pick up a 5S off Swappa. Still a great phone and I got to pocket $100 from the sale. Figure I'll use the 5S until the iPhone 7 comes out.
    It's been nice not seeing a daily "X App stopped working" error message for the last two months.
  • iPhone 5s is definitely still a great device! I'm considering the SE next time around (or whatever generation is out by then). The 4-inch form factor is really one of the best sized phones. Sent from the iMore App
  • I switched FROM an iphone 4 to a Nexus 4 because I needed a bigger screen. My aging eyes just could not deal with a 3.5" screen. I was prepared to switch back to a iphone 6, but I have grown accustomed to being able to customize my phone experience. I am open to switching to an iphone (i love my ipad) but I will need more customization options. Just being able to put my apps where I want on a screen would be enough for me to switch. Perhaps ios 10?
  • Smart man Posted from my Nexus 6P
  • This could just be because of OCD or something, but I almost get customization anxiety when I have android. I know I can just leave it as is, but there are so many choices to make with android - do I use stock apps or manufacturer, do I want widgets or a cleaner look. What icons do I want to use? Which launcher looks the best, works the best, etc.
    And it isn't just blindly following whatever Apple says looks best. One of my favorite features of Windows phone was the limited amount of customization.
  • I'm the same way. It ends up being a distraction b/c I know the potential customization options. As fun as it can be it's also a complete waste of time 90% of the time. It needs to be a tool, not a toy. If it oversteps that boundary (or rather, if I allow it to), then it's not serving its main purpose, which is simply to keep me connected to what I need to be connected with while making my life more efficient - not less efficient. It should be in and out and done. I realize this is completely possible on Android as well, but I'm a tinkerer at heart. And for some reason, jailbraking and customizing an iPhone feels like a huge leap that never crosses my mind. All personal problems I'm sure. :)
  • Ditto, The same thing over here. I'm a tinkerer and the main reason I switch is because on Android I have to factory restore every 3 to 4 month, with luck. I know it's my fault tinkering in dark OS system. So I have an iPhone as my work phone so I don't mess with it. But I jailbreak older iPhone to find out the additional function is for make it more android.
  • This. I moved from away from Android to iPhone because I was tired of setting up how I was going to use my phone instead of just using my phone.
  • I know some time ago (before Lollipop, really) Android devices often needed these customization to be great. I don't think they are needed anymore. If you pick up your average Galaxy S7, and don't change anything, it will run and look and work great. The default settings are pretty close to ideal to an average person.
  • Are you saying you like Apple better because you don't have a choice as much in customizing the experience as much to suit your needs or tastes? Posted from my Nexus 6P
  • I'd rather be in and out of my phone quickly without having to tweak anything "to my needs or tastes" and focus on the needs and tastes I have in the real world. That's what he's trying to say, I believe.
  • I'm an Android user, and I like making my phone just how I want it. But I understand where the poster is coming from. I generally prefer listening to the radio over picking what music I want out of the massive streaming libraries out there. Why? Because I don't need to worry about whether I'm listening to the perfect song all the time. I just turn on a station I like and live with what is on. For my phone, I have a handful of looks/organizational structures I like. I switch between them every 6 months or so. I'm not worried about all the other, possibly superior options.
  • Stop preaching Android on here like its some godly OS because it isn't abs neither is iOS perfect. Either say something to the point of question on this thread or don't say anything at all. This is an Apple community and talk of Android isn't exactly welcome here. Sent from the iMore App

  • How about you **** out. Sent from the iMore App
  • Again get a life. This is an interesting coment section but you have to come in and get upset at the mentioned of android. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • You need to look at the title of the thread. If the mention of Android bothers you so much, you should avoid threads that have the word "Android" in the title.
  • No the mere mention of Android doesn't bother me, what bothers mr is people going off topic. In the case of this question. Is why did you switch from Android to iPhone? So people need to stick to the topic. Sent from the iMore App
  • You are such an angry little ******* troll dude. Every thread when somebody says something positive about Android, or negative about Apple, you leave your little hut to rail about it. If it makes you that upset, I suggest you stop reading. Moron.
  • Yeah customization can really suck you in on Android with all the icon packs and such. I actually went with a Lumia 1020 for a while and tried out Windows Phone for about a year. I actually really liked it. What drove me away from it was the lack of apps, timely app updates, big name apps pulling themselves from the store (a lot of banking apps started bailing on it in 2014), and the complete lack of Google apps which I can still use on iOS finally just got to me.
  • I did that too on the Moto. Keep looking for an app that allows me to do shortcuts here and there. Spent nights doing that, just to perfection. But now back on iOS I just can't get away from workflow. It's so powerful. Sure I would love customisation but iOS has so many already built into the core software that I have to still hunt down on android again. Sent from the iMore App
  • This! Same exact anxiety.
  • Totally agree. I love Android for so many reasons. I just feel like I'm always customizing it instead of actually using it. iOS is totally boring, but I feel like I spend more time actually doing something productive rather than worrying about widgets, icons, etc...
  • Hey, you can put your apps where you want on your screen on iOS. Just long-press any app, they will all go wobbly, then they can be moved around, or dragged on top of another to create a folder.
  • I think they're referring to being able to put an icon or widget anywhere you want on the home screen regardless of what is around it on Android. On iOS you have to put your icons in order starting from upper left across the top row and continuing down the grid until you get to the bottom right. You can not leave a space between icons or, if your screen is not completely full of icons, you can't put frequently used apps along the edge of one side of the screen so they're easier to reach with your thumb.
    This is a big annoyance to me on iOS as well. There is no logical reason to be forced into this design after 9 iterations of iOS. Having the freedom to put something anywhere on the screen is not going to cause people to freak out that there is too much customization nor will it cause any added confusion for new users. It's just a pointless limitation...
  • Its how I feel at the moment. Went from the Droid X to the iPhone 5 since the iPhone wasn't on Verizon yet. Then went to the HTC One m8 because it was the best phone available at the time and then upgraded to the Nexus 6 because I could. And the Nexus 6 which was just too big. When I had to swap carriers, I went with the iPhone 6s. Would of gone with either the HTC m9 or Droid Turbo 2 but they weren't supported by US Cellular, so I felt that the iPhone 6s was the best phone at the time. Got a highly discounted Apple Watch too, so I think I am going to be in the Apple ecosystem for a while
  • I switched from Windows Phone (HTC 8X, then Lumia 930) after being disappointed with the outcome of the Windows 10 Mobile and I can really feel the difference: so many apps I haven't dreamt of and even Microsoft ones are rather good; plus no more "resuming" or poor battery life. I regret the personalisation options are very limited - tiles and wallpapers from Bing changing on daily basis were really beautiful. But apart from that I finally have a functional phone that last 2 days with my usage pattern while being always swift and pleasant to use. I am really considering going deeper into Apple's environment. I only wish Apple keeps the pace.
  • I went from a Moto X to an iPhone 6s. Why? iMessage, Facetime, higher quality apps and presence of certain specific apps not found on Android. I have to come appreciate my iPhone now as it continues to perform flawlessly even after a few months, something I couldn´t say about my Moto X. P.S. I think Android as an OS has better UX/UI paradigms, but I need and prefer iOS apps. A phone is probably as good as its apps.
  • I first switched to the iPhone because I had always wanted one but AT&T wasn't an option. I love being able to have exclusive apps from the devs that only support iOS. Timely updates and a system that just works are a plus. I have been going back and forth. I keep an Android phone for 6 months and the latest iPhone for 6 months.
  • I guess that I have kind of made the switch. I was originally on Windows Phone, and I tried out Android. I really thought that I would be switching to Android permanently but I have had some issues with Android itself that made me decide to try out the iPhone and then eventually choose it over Android. Anyway, for me, it was the following (I'm going to try not to make this as long): -Silencing the ringer on Android makes it go into vibration mode, which is frustrating when you are trying to use Doze...in a quiet setting.
    On the iPhone, the mute/kill switch takes care of that for me instantly...and I get the choice of if I WANT to use vibrate or not. -Speaking of Doze (it's meant to save battery), it only works on a flat surface which is annoying considering that I have a job where I am always getting up, and my office is "open" so I don't feel comfortable leaving my phone on my desk if I am not there. My phone warms up in my pocket.
    The iPhone has a great way to optimize battery. It also doesn't burn up in my pocket either. -Android has SO many layers, so many things to configure and adjust. I'm aware that I don't have to do these things (even though sometimes you do have to do them, but lets save that discussion for another time). I felt like I was always adjusting things to have the best experience.
    With the iPhone, it feels simpler to me, almost like Windows Phone with the simplicity. I can just do the original setup and go about my day, just the way I like it. -Android's Do Not Disturb mode is one of the most annoying things ever (at least to me). I have touched on this in the forums but in short, it's not enough to set DND on its own, you have to choose which mode within DND you want to use. I set my phone in DND and alarms don't break through it, and neither does media, which is annoying. I have to tinker to make sure that it would wake me up.
    iPhone: I have one DND mode, and alarms and media break right through it. I don't have to worry that my alarm might be silenced. -Double email notifications. If your email is hosted on Gmail, this is a non-issue. For me though, my emails are hosted on Outlook. Every time I get an email, I get a Outlook notification and also a Gmail notification. Very annoying. My favorite thing (sarcasm) is if I disable Gmail notifications, I then get NO email notifications.
    iPhone: This doesn't happen at all. I just get Outlook notifications. I have probably never opened the Mail app since I first got an iPhone in general. Finally, this might sound silly but eh, it is what it is:
    -I hated that I turn off things, and yet they are still running in the background on Android. Like NFC, I turn it off, but yet in the processes, I still see it running. Additionally, it seems like everything runs in the background.
    iPhone: This doesn't happen. There are some apps that I don't need to run in the background and I love that I have the option to turn off refresh. Twitter of course, should refresh. My Bible app on the other hand, it really doesn't need to. Basically, that's why I switched. These might be little things to some, but they really started to annoy me. Will I probably try some Androids in the future? Most likely if they interest me, but I'll probably continue to use iPhone as my main. Additionally, the release of the SE is golden to me. I started with a smaller smartphone and found myself missing the smaller phone factor often enough, but anything that is smaller, I have either tried or they have awful specs. The SE is like a dream, nice specs in a smaller phone. (I see that I win for longest response...welp.)
  • Original Droid, X2, Maxx, Turbo, N6, N6P. Flashed own ROMs, very much loved Nova Launcher. Have done the iOS <---> Android switch-er-roo to the cell carries delight, draining my wallet and my own mental well being. Reasons I'm sticking with my iPhone 6s+:
    Corporate email more fluid when using Exchange, including handling MS office attachments, Calendar, family calendar sharing, garmin connect notifications are a mess on android, iMessage is a killer app, audio via headphones is awesome on Apple for quality compared to the 8+ android devices I have owned, the camera is reliable and takes noticeably better photos, when encrypting android becomes sluggish, battery life is night and day (even against the all superior giant Turbo battery), facetime with family, find my friends, integration with the other apple devices in my household. Most importantly, not waiting for negative infinity for software updates from the OEM & carrier on android. Getting them day one on iOS. I have spent zero hours researching issues on my iPhone compared to my android. Have had a 6 plus (Original and now +) since they were released. Not going back to android.
  • My fiancé and I both switched from Android mainly due to problems we were having with our Android devices on Verizon HTC M8 and LG G3 are data speeds were very sporadic and we're having signal issues were our neighbor was having no issues with their phones who were also on Verizon. I mainly held off on switching back to IOS due to the iPhone at the time only having a 4 inch screen and we were use to having 5+ inch screens and when the 6s+ launched we jump on it right away and have never looked back. In short it just works and that's something we have been longing for.
  • I switched from a Nexus 5 because it was free. My wife is an iPhone gal and I was a Android guy. When the time came around for new phones our carrier was doing a 2 for 1 deal but they had to be the same manufacturer. I was going to have an easier time transitioning from one type of phone to another so I bit the bullet and made the switch to a 6s. I enjoy the phone a lot but I do miss some of the small things from Android.
  • I am curious, what are some of the small things of Android you're missing?
  • I haven't made the switch yet, but I'm seriously considering it. I really liked my Windows phone, but Spring & Samsung have left Windows in the dust. Went to Android with Galaxy S4. Last update was to Lollipop & that is the last update it will ever receive. I'm so tired of manufacturers lagging on the updates & then the carriers doing the same. I should have learned my lesson with my Windows Samsung phone! I want updates in a timely manner. Even my husband's Iphone 4 gets updated swiftly. I'm holding out for the Iphone 6S Plus 64 gb with the hopes there will be a good deal later in the year.
  • I switched from the droid dna to the iphone 5s in 2013 because I was fed up with HTC withholding android updates. I was also in love with the build of the 5s and already used itunes for my music.
  • Using a 6s plus and S7 edge iOS standby times are unreal that's why it's my daily driver Sent from the iMore App
  • I switched from the oneplus one to an iPhone 6S 64GB. Main reason for switching after being on android since smartphones hit the mainstream (after my brief hiccup with a BB Storm 2) is that I just wanted something that worked in itself and with other things. Unless you go Nexus with Android you're left in a world of uncertainty update wise and can never guarantee that everything will work the same from one manufacturer to the next. Had a few htc phones which were fine but never quite 100%. Have had a couple of Sony devices which weren't amazing, oneplus was restrictive network wise and never stable so I ditched it and got my iPhone. I might still go back once my two years are up. I love how this works so easily and the camera is great, I miss the tinkering though that I was able to do with android phones. Where as I could sit faffing for ages with the layout and such for ages on my android phones, I find once I've checked my mail and social networks there's no reason to continue using the phone. It's probably not a bad thing I guess but hey hoo...and ****, the App Store expensive compared to the play store. We shall see though Sent from the iMore App
  • Check out launcher app for iOS, adds the android style pull down menu. besides app icon organizing what other tinkering have you wished you could do with iOS?
  • Personally, I just couldn't deal with the unstable nature of android. I had a 6s that I traded for an LG V10, then that for a Galaxy S7. The major reason I switched back was due to an error on my account that made it impossible to buy apps. I sat on the phone with Google Play support for literally hours before they, in a roundabout way, told me they had no idea what was going on and would get back to me. Which they didn't. Went back to Tmobile and got a 64GB Rose Gold 6s and have no regrets.
  • I was a long time Android fan boy (Motorola Droid, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Droid DNA, HTC One), but I was always frustrated by the fact that many people couldn't understand my (lower) voice on calls. I borrowed my wife's iPhone a couple of times, and had no such trouble, so I reluctantly switched to iPhone and couldn't be happier with my 6S. :-)
  • I had been with Android forever, last phone was the Nexus 6, switched for the apple watch as crazy as that sounds, at the time the only watch to be able to take phone calls on it, but also because I knew I would use Apple Pay, at more places that I thought it'd work, also knew it'd work with the new August Lock, love using it to unlock my house. I also have to port one of my enterprise android apps to iOS so I figured I'd fully convert to force myself to understand the usage of the iOS version. Both platforms are so mature that I can do the exact same thing on android as I can on iOS EXCEPT I have not found a good calendar app. I loved calendar snooze on android, no calendar reminder would disappear unless I specifically clicked dismiss, it would stay in the notification bar letting me act on it or snooze it till later. With iOS the closest I have come is CalAlarm, reminders disappear from the notification center when you go into the app, but keep repeating every 15 minutes until I dismiss them, but still not as good of a solution as Calendar Snooze on Android. What does anyone else use for this? Would love a better app suggestion
  • I switched from my Z5 Premium after years of Android loyalty due to the massive fragmentation and need for carrier customisation. Take Wifi calling as an example, on Android I needed to either buy my handset carrier direct or flash the carriers ROM. On the iPhone I pop in a sim and it updates the carrier settings. This type of simplicity won me over, now I have Wifi calling, VoLTE, visual voicemail without needing to wait for the updated Android rom that would usually be out of date from by the time it was released. Yes I could have gotten a Nexus 5X or 6P but I'd still end up in the same time loop. Sent from the iMore App
  • I was tired of resetting my android phone due to its lack of speed. Android phones work great at the beginning but after a few months it starts to get slow and apps starts to slow. Sent from the iMore App
  • I switched over to iPhone mainly due to LTE data issues on my Android phones with Sprint. All my android phones had the same issues. Every time I wanted to watch videos I would always get buffering. Switched over to iPhone and no issues at all. Other reason for me were lack of updates and patching of Android phones. Apps were a big thing to. Had a lot more apps crashing on Android than I do on iPhone as well. The only thing I miss is the file manager. Sent from the iMore App
  • i switched from a LG G4 to an iPhone 6 Plus because i wanted to keep great camera performance, but have great phone performance as well.
  • Confession: I'm actually an Android fanboy, but I use iOS and a 6S as my daily driver. I used to tinker - root, rom, etc. - on Android every chance I got, all the way back prior to the Motorola Droid. Then life became more important. I've owned literally every Android flagship going back to 2009 thanks to Swappa. There always felt like a compromise no matter what Android device I had, but iOS (at least in its current iteration, and on the 6S) feels like there are no (or minimal) compromises. Even now on the Galaxy S7, it's hampered by carrier bloat and already delayed updates. If I wanted to drop $700 on the unlocked international version, I wouldn't be able to use Samsung Pay and would have limited Android Pay, and no VoLTE or Wifi calling - and updates have been sporadic on that version already as well, due to the regional firmware Samsung uses. iMessage & Facetime: I know this is trivial for some. But literally every. single. person. I work with or care about in my family / friend circle uses an iPhone, so iMessage and Facetime are pretty awesome. Any time I pop my sim into an Android device, iMessage groups get completely screwed up - and not just for me, but for everybody in the group. This isn't Android's fault, but it's an issue nonetheless - call it genius 'lock in' on Apple's part I guess. One final point of contention - battery life. I know when I set my 6S down at night, it's only going to be a couple of percentage points lower by morning. On my S7, there have been some nights like that, and others where it's down 20%, and I get tired of the constant battery life "hand holding". For the hardcore Google fan out there, honestly the experience on iOS is as good or better in some instances anyway (unless you live & breathe Google Now). So for me it boils down to consistency, simplicity, updates, and connectivity to those I care about. Sorry for the long comment... kinda got going there and didn't stop. Edit: Let me add one more comment on the cameras since I have the S7 alongside the 6S. The S7 is a great camera, but I don't think it beats the 6S. They each have their strengths, but one of the weaknesses of the S7's camera is the field of view and intense over sharpening. In good lighting, I'll take my 6S over S7 any day b/c the photo looks real and natural, and there is minimal "stretching" on the outskirts of the photo. The S7 is the opposite, though still very good obviously. In low light, yes the S7 takes in more light, but I'd still argue it looks very unnatural in a lot of scenarios. Whether that's better or worse is up to you.
  • We're definitely in the same boat. I'm an Android fanboy, for sure. Been basically using them since the OG Droid X. Been on iOS since December and don't see me switching, basically for all of the reasons you listed.
  • because the iphone is the best i switched from experia z1 to iphone 5s it's the best of the best
  • iPhone 5? The best I think you waste a lot money. You could of get a nice Android phone
  • I have a love and dislike relationship with Apple. I love visiting Apple forum and knowing Apple user's perspective. I am an Android user and might get iPhone someday. But still not very convinced with iPhone. A couple of my friends own iPhone and I was very excited because I could now bother them and ask various questions and clear my doubts but unfortunately, they are minimal users. The only answer I get is "it's nice, it's working smoothly". They hardly use iTunes. I wanted to know more about iTinues and pros and cons of using iOS. It "feels like" you have to use iOS as per Apple and unlike Android, make it yours. Do whatever you want. The accessories are expensive for Apple. USB OTG is awesome for Android users. Cheap and simple. But for Apple, you need a different app for that (I can understand, might be security reasons), then Majority of users in India use Android so transferring data via hotspot is fast and simple. With apple, that will be difficult. Transferring of data via USB to phone and vice versa is so convenient and we use it a lot. In fact, in case something goes wrong and you need to take a quick backup and have no wifi or PC nearby you can take the entire backup of your phone and transfer it to USB and then format your device and restore it back. You save data and time too. This thing has saved me many times, especially when I am travelling. I do like certain things about iOS. Like iCloud backup system. Not very confident with Photo sync. Even with Android too. Need to learn more about it. Then, complete backup option via iTunes. Smooth performance of the device after 1-2 years. Of course, the OTA updates :) I still not like the harsh syncing system of iTunes. I am very used to with drag-n-drop function of Android. Another day, I just wanted to add few pictures into my iPad (yes, I have iPad mini 1, and it's lagging, app crashing a lot now :| Need to buy a new one) but I couldn't because it ways I need a particular folder to sync and also, device's pics will get deleted. Same goes with the songs too. Why can't I just drag and drop a file into iPhone via iTunes? Almost every time I use iTunes I have to search the internet. Never did this with Android, it's more straight forward. For me, iTunes is like some kind of slavery, where I have to accept that somethings can't be done or/and done in a different way. For iPhone users, since you have been using it for so many years and now you are comfortable with it, might have found the alternative to various things. For a new user like me, it's a different story.
  • Never use iTunes. Unless you want to backup the phone and encrypt the backup. Because iCloud still don't do encrypted backup. I did that when I signed on to the beta tester programme. Other wise never touched iTunes. My photos are all in Google photos and OneDrive. Delete most of my local files. Because Google photos are great enough. iPhoto is quite lousy. To do a quick transfer of photos or videos can try pushbullet or vlc through wifi or airdrop through Bluetooth. If all else fail there's a lightning Usb stick or microSD card reader, both are quite expensive thanks to lightning. Worse part of Apple is the price of the phone. Quite expensive even after awhile. I can buy a s7 for slightly more than an se unlocked. Sent from the iMore App
  • I use both but if I were to switch to just one, it would be iPhone.
    The reason: android can not send picture messages reliably.
    And its not just one android phone, android can't send pics 100% of the time no matter what brand, or what messaging app you use.
    I sent 4 pics from my galaxy S7 yesterday and the person got 1 out of 4....
    customization is great, but android just doesn't have the polish iOS has.
    I am selling my current phones and going to a 6S+ asap.
