Last November I made the switch. Ever since modern smartphones began around 2007-2008, I'd been an Android fan. I had the original Droid from Motorola, then a couple of follow up Motorola models...I then bought an HTC 8 which I loved, a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge which I loved, with some caveats, then after ten years of Android, I made the switch to iPhone!

like quality of the device; the hardware. Playing with the phone I also noticed the flawless and seamless operation of the iOS. I was mesmerized. THIS was a great phone. Even though I had a few months left until 2 years was up on my Galaxy S7 edge, I went into Verizon's store and made the switch. It's been almost ten months and the novelty of the iPhone still hasn't worn off. It's simply the best phone I've ever owned. I chose the iPhone 8 4.7 inch screen for it's size. The camera is fabulous and the operating system is so smooth. I own an iPad so it wasn't a total surprise but there are no more Android jutters and flaws. I didn't get the iPhone X because I love the perfection of Apple's fingerprint sensor. I love the home button and to my eye there wasn't a huge difference in display quality, since Apple knows how to make a GREAT LCD screen. I used to like all of the customization available on Android but Apple now has Google Calendar (which I love) and third party swype-type keyboards, which are a must for me. Apple lets the user customize much more than previously. I love getting my iTunes music library on my phone now too. I guess I'm an iPhone fanboy for life now. This iPhone 8 is the very last iPhone of this perfect size and a home button. Rumor has it Apple is working on an under-screen fingerprint sensor for it's 2019 iPhones and I may upgrade to the iPhone 12 then but for now, the iPhone 8 with it's wireless charging, good battery life, smooth operation, great camera and super high quality construction is my best phone ever! You cannot go wrong with this.
