Despite criticism from some people asking questions about my area or knowledge of Android (I’ve tested a lot of Android phones), iPhone 13 Pro remains my favorite smartphone. But recently, deal writer Millie Davis Williams wondered why I had multiple phones with me, specifically the iPhone, a Google Pixel 6 Pro And the Oppo Find Inn.
Now, I’d like to have both ecosystems so I can check for anomalies or new features when I deliver the latest tech news. But if you dig a little deeper, the answer is a little more abstract.
Simply put, iOS and iPhone aren’t fun enough to keep me away from Android. I admit the iPhone 13 Pro is cool but it’s also boring.
Ecosystem vs Excitement
But my problem with iPhone 13 Pro and iOS is that once you get used to it, there aren’t any features that make me happy and excited. iOS 15 Stupidly easy to use, even compared to stains Android 12. But I find the iPhone 13 Pro discouraging one to delve into its functions.
iOS is also easy to use but does not offer outstanding special features, other than features Cinema Mode on the camera. Once I set up my iPhone 13 Pro it was done; I didn’t feel like there were any special features or options to modify.
Relatively speaking, Pixel 6 He has great technique like tensor slide that enables science fiction virtually magic eraserPlus features like direct copying. while the Samsung Galaxy S22 Scope can submit pseudo-desktop assignments using DeX. and the Oppo Find X5 Pro It has a 10-bit display and intelligent enhanced technology for mixing SDR content to HDR.
Give me more options than optimization
Android phones in general tend to have a myriad of options that allow you to play with their settings, appearance, and all kinds of other parameters. There’s real fun setting up a new Android phone, from seeing what the manufacturer thinks of Google’s mobile operating system to calibrating the color and design of the display.
Sure, iOS now has widgets and other flexible tools for an extra layer of customization, but it pales in comparison to the range of customization Android offers. This has always been the case, but I think it’s something that you feel very noticeable when you use the iPhone for the right amount of time.
Don’t get me wrong, Apple’s limitations on iOS are one of the reasons it’s great when it comes to well-honed intuitive software, consistent performance and an enviable hardware and app ecosystem. I hardly feel that the iPhone 13 Pro makes doing something so annoying.
With iOS, having an operating system that “just works” instead of complicating things is great. A good argument is that smartphones should not be tech-savvy gadgets but small panels of electronics that respond instantly to your whims.
In comparison, some Android phones can feel a little claustrophobic, with the Pixel 6 Pro being the latest culprit; The under-display fingerprint scanner is still inferior.
However, as a tech fanatic, I still enjoy researching the features and options that a Samsung, Google, or OnePlus flagship phone offers me, even if some oddities and inconsistencies make me want to throw phones like these into the sea.
Messing around with phone options, for example screen or audio calibration tools, gives one a taste of what the custom-built phones experience can feel like, rather than one curated and dictated by a bunch of people from Cupertino. In my opinion, the price of iPhone convenience and ease of use comes at the cost of innovation and intrigue.
Unfortunately, with iPhone 14 seek Set to deliver disappointing upgrades and the iPhone 14 Pro It tends to be an evolution of today’s professional phones, and I can’t see Apple smartphones getting more exciting again anytime soon.
Does all this mean that I want to switch back from iPhone 13 Pro to Pixel 6 Pro or Galaxy S22 Ultra? Well, no, because I enjoy the broader Apple ecosystem a lot and I think the 6.1 inch phone offers the best screen size.
But it means that you rarely catch me leaving my apartment for any length of time without either of us Best Android Phones; Despite the quality of the iPhone, my Android addiction is a hard one to get rid of.
