iPhone X or Android: Time to Switch?
Why not simply switch to Android? (1) Ecosystem, ecosystem, ecosystem. It’s not as simple as a single device (or simply hardware), anymore. (2) Privacy. Google’s business model is user-hostile. (3) Support. Walk into a Google Store. You can’t. (4) Focus. How many Google / Android products have been abandoned within a brief span of time? What’s Google’s long-term strategy for devices? For software? For services? For a comprehensive experience?

Common complaint is that I’m too picky, too critical of the iPhone X / iOS. Why don’t I just leave. Why don’t I just ignore the problems. You know who else had attention to detail? Steve Jobs.
Stay and hope things improve
The entire value prop is that Apple controls everything
No viable single company alternative
The least of all evils
I can use and not be a fan
Not hypocritical – Apple wins on design
You don’t have to buy everything
Google list in description
Try to provide feedback rather than silence or complicity (getting tired
of beating the same drum)
Ecosystems are a challenge, as Apple has no true contender
Google would have to communicate effective device, software, service strategy and it’s already 1/3rd the way there
Google would have to begin opening up hardware support kiosks
Google would have to enable me to truly control my own data
Google would have to embrace larger device strategy (Fuschia)

Hello, galaxy! I’m Chris Pirillo, and I love living the geek lifestyle – as a family-loving father, as an entrepreneur, as a Star Wars collector, as a retro video game player, as a LEGO minifigure fan, as a pop culture event producer, as a thrifting junkie, as an ’80s nostalgia kidult, as a toy seeker, as a coupon clipper, as a consumer tech advisor, as a person who loves picking up the digital camera that’s usually sitting inside his smartphone and recording whatever thoughts happen to be in my head at the time (or experiences that I’m happy to share with the world)!
