What holds me back? In my limited exposure to the Android OS, I haven’t played with it, navigating all the options. For whatever reason, it hasn’t been automatically intuitive. For example, when I was playing with the Nexus phone at the VZW store this week. On the phone keypad, I couldn’t find the backspace button. I don’t recall recently becoming a non-nerd or an idiot, but I couldn’t figure it out. From what I’ve read, it seems that there is a learning curve, but there is more to get out of Android. So I’m tossing the idea around in my head for what to do in Nov.
The reason I went to AT&T was for the selection in smartphones, and eventually the iPhone. As well, I’m a big user of voice and data simulaneously, because AT&T uses GSM network. Nowadays, Verizon is moving towards Voice over LTE (“VoLTE”.) They already support simultaneous voice and data now (using both the CDMA, 802.11, and LTE radios, so I could theoretically use data and voice (in an LTE coverage area.) Couple the ability to use data and voice with the lure of large 4.8″ AMOLED, a new OS, wider data coverage, and begins to push me towards Verizon. Oh, also, I use way more Google products/apps than Apple products, do that’s another “pro” reason to switch to Android.
Something to think about in the next few months.
