Last May, as the battery in my old HTC Droid DNA was draining precipitously and the fact that it can't be replaced, it was time to upgrade. The DNA was used for the better part of 26 months. I debated whether to go with an iPhone or stick with Android via the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or LG G3. I was most concerned about losing access to an awesome app on Android that blocks unwanted calls (Call Control). I paid for the app and it worked well. Apple does not allow call-blocking apps via its native ecosystem (unless one jailbreaks the phone). I thought this might be a deal-breaker for getting the iPhone. I decided to try the iPhone anyway. If all else failed, I would come back to Android via the Note 4 if the iPhone didn't work out. The other reason for getting the it had to do with it being an iPod Classic replacement. I have a 70GB+ iTunes collection and no current iPod had the capacity to hold my entire collection, save for the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus. I also wanted a phone bigger than the 5.0-inch screen DNA. Pros: Phenomenal screen resolution and clarity Ease of use Intuitive software/Clean UI Organized and clean app setup and functionality iTunes music and app integration 128GB native capacity Extensive and detailed settings options and tighter control over app permissions App selection Native ability to turn on camera flash for notifications (via the Accessibility options) Native ringtone selection Basic customization Incredible battery life Smooth UI transition between apps/calls/notifications/screens, etc. Excellent fingerprint scanner Silent switch on side Quicker charging (versus Droid DNA) Remarkably less, if any, Wi-Fi battery drain (versus the DNA) Native flashlight Siri (especially the option for either male or female voice) iMessage Speaker at bottom of device (versus the back on the DNA) Simplified settings (versus the DNA) 5.5 inch screen Easy transition from Android Cons: Price Marginal Lightning charger cord Inability to remove some unused Apple apps Lack of call blocking apps (unlike Android) Non-removable battery (like the DNA) Easily breakable screen glass (versus the gorilla glass on the DNA) Having to go through iTunes to add ringtones (via Zedge) So far, I am really loving the phone. I don't regret getting it at all, even at the ridiculous price being charged for it. It was inexpensive to find a pouch case and protective shell cover for the phone, along with a tempered glass screen protector. The battery life is by far the best part of the phone. I am still VERY much a fan of Android (especially the Note 4 phone and the upcoming Note 5). For me, though, iOS is much cleaner, easier, less cluttered, and more intuitive than Android. I thought I would miss screen widgets with iOS, but I've found I don't. I love both iOS and Android, I just prefer iOS more now. It really is someone's personal preference which phone OS works better for them. I was surprised how much I came to enjoy and prefer iOS. If the need for a second mobile phone arises, Android it will be (on one of the Note phones). As for the call blocking issue, I found an excellent work-around. I have all my VM's forwarded to Google Voice (which has an excellent call blocking option), save a particular ringtone for every contact in my phone and found a silent ringtone through Zedge that is the default "ringer". I never hear the phone ring for any caller not in my contacts. So far it is working like a charm.
