so after a long time user of Android phones i'm forced to switch to iPhone..

why??.. blue tooth hearing aid compatibility..

if i wanted to stick to the Android i would have to buy a bluetooth relay device.. which adds a thorn to my side because i would have to maintain 4 items instead of 3.. which i want to keep is Wallet-Keys-Phone..

so.. being a noob with it.. any advice :D

I have limited experience here, but maybe this helps a little.

I get the sense that you are right on compatibility, in the sense that Apple seems to be better at that and it's technology is smarter and more intuitive.

To give the only specific example I have: I used to have an Iphone. and I use my phone a lot with my car.

I hook up the phone and can play music from the phone, listen to podcasts etc.

Then I switched to Android. I can still do this with Android.

But it worked A LOT smoother with the Iphone than with the Android. Especially in terms of voice commands.

I was very easily able to use voice with my iphone to ask it to play music, to send texts (I would dictate the text to the phone and it would send them no problem), and to basically make it do whatever.

With the Android for some reason it just doesn't work 99 percent of the time when I try to use a voice command. It says that I need to stop the car to use it which defeats the purpose of using voice commands.

So I don't know if that is directly relevant. Full disclosure, I have five shares of Apple stock so I have a vested financial interest in which phone you buy.

Though maybe the real lesson of my parable is...if you have a device that works well with another device that you use a lot, maybe it's best not to switch devices?

The internet scholars will debate this for centuries.

After a couple weeks with my iphone.. learning all the tics n switch im able to adjust to it.. tho its only been a few weeks.. im confident that i'll pick up mastering the arts of iphone usage.

It does come off as a solid phone.. just i hate the "inside purchases" to get the premium goodies etc. kinda like back when microsoft xbox 360 first came out with separate hardware.. such as wireless connection and chargeable batteries.

Man those things sorta put me off.. i hope the day never comes when you buy a car.. but have to purchase an engine/battery to go with it.

Personally i think the android was more convenient for me.. i never used the voice commands anyways.

Oh...apple is evil for sure. And they design their stuff to lock you into using their products, which is why i tried to switch to a different phone...thanks for reminding me of this...never going back to apple products.
