Default Just Wondering, iPhone or Droid?

I know this has nothing to do with hunting but our phones in the stand AND everywhere else are a tool we don't go with out. Heck I have even left for the stand and forgot my phone finding myself going back to camp for it, I take a lot of photos, text hunting updates to buddies and good for emergencies.

I am an Apple everything and also have the latest phone when released (that's just me), Id like to know how many folks (hunters) prefer iPhone over a Droid.

Dumb I know but it settles a few things for me, not that I would EVER switch over to the dark side of Droid.

Droid is a motorola phone.

Android whips iphone up and down the street like a red-headed step child.

Imagine walking into Academy, Cabelas, Bass Pro, etc. and they sell one pattern of camo. No variations. And if you want to add new pieces of camo you have to log into iCamo and sync your original set of camo and then be told that iCamo is outdated and you have to download the new version of iCamo or you're stuck with the same original set of clothes even though you paid 1K for that set of clothes and it's worn out. That's the iPhone experience.

Or, imagine that you want to edit contacts' phone number types (home, mobile, etc) with your droid (read dread). You can't and the edits don't save. Errrything more difficult with Droid and that's the lone experience that will remind you "shoulda got another iPhone."

Imagine using that droid and some scammer gets all your info off of it and then figures out all your bank info and where you are hiding Little Debbie and see's that pic of you that time your were drunk overseas and....you get the point.

iPhone for security reasons!

Look up Samsung Knox. If you sync your iPhone to a computer or to the cloud its easily hackable.

Unless your password is just really creative and the hackers shrug their shoulders and say, "Wow. Hes good. Must have Capital letters and punctuation. I give up!"




But on a serious note, I've never known anyone who had their phone hacked. Only their accounts. But learn something everyday.

I have always used iPhone but never the latest. I just can't justify the expense. I like iPhone and they are easy to use especially since I have switched all my computers to Apple. That being said, when I upgrade in February, I'm leaning toward the iPhone 7 and making it my last. I may splurge for the 8 but then I am done. No way am I going to this silly facial recognition for security. And there is no arguing that Samsung does not have a better product purely from a technology perspective. I may even just bite the bullet an make the change now.

Upgrading my phone today actually to the 8 maybe go with the plus.

Tired of running out of storage. I haven't dabbled with the other platforms but since we run apple at work, I am going to stick with it

If you want your phone to control what you can do, go with Apple. If you want to tell your phone what to do, go with Android.

I've had both over the years and started with Android phones...then tried the iPhone 5 back when it was Ht Sht...then went back to android, then back to iPhone 7plus...liked it but it was boring...now I'm sporting the Note 8 and probably will never go back to iPhone...They just got wireless charging! Samsung's been doing that for 6-7 years now...jeez, apple's pretty far behind...Androids are just as safe as iPhones....just not as boring...

I was an iPhone guy up through the 4s. Switched to the Galaxy S5 and now on the S7. I can't imagine going backwards to an iPhone 8

Ditto what Shane said - Control (Android) or be Controlled (iPhone). I prefer to be in Control.

I hear things like the android is great if you are doing computer aided designs or if you are into industrial drafting, etc. That is probably true. I also hear the iPhone is boring. That is true also because it simply works.

So if you are doing commercial drafting or running some kind of high tech business where you really need to be able to modify a phone, the android system might be for you. For the other 98.7% of the public that just doesnít need that opinion, the iPhone is faster, has better photos and is more (boring) stable.

Oh yeah, I also hear that the android really has more potential to do neat high school girlie things like change what your lock screen shows and other really cute thingies like that. If that is for you, you might definitely get an android.

I concur with the above.

I jailbroke my first iPhone when I got it because of all the cutesy things it could do. That was an iPhone 4.

Since then (Iím now on a 6S+) Iíve seen no reason to mess with it. It does everything I need it to do and then some.

It just works.
