I ditched my Android device for an iPhone 15 for a week – and Apple has some work to do

I ditched my Android device for an iPhone 15 for a week – and Apple has some work to do

Which side of the Android/iPhone fence do you fall on? Although I review a lot of phones and usually carry one of each with me most of the time, my SIM card is currently finding purchase in a Pixel phone – the Pixel 8 Pro to be exact. Or at least I did…

Although I've tested iPhones for review — most recently with the iPhone 15 Plus review and iPhone 15 Pro review — outside of the scope of the review, my personal use is mostly on Android phones and has been doing so for years. I like the flexibility and customizability of the platform, and the ability to address shortcomings or customize with third-party apps and tools in a way that doesn't exist on the iPhone. The interoperability with a wide range of devices/operating systems – be it iPhones, iPads, Macs, Windows PCs or other Android phones and tablets – is also undoubtedly superior. Even Android file management offers greater control and versatility (don't do it for me).
