On Monday I made the switch from my LG Stylo 3 to the iPhone SE. I wasn’t in love with some of my pictures, service was horrible, and I couldn’t hotspot it. Hotspotting was my biggest complaint. It actually made me mad enough that I considered switching from Cricket, but I would be going to Straight Talk who doesn’t offer hotspotting at all.
Anyway, limited internet/cellular options in the country will be it’s own post. It could almost be it’s own blog. Lol
So, why is iOS better than Android? Well, for one thing, I bought my LG Stylo 3 in December 2017 and it became obsolete on March 30, 2018 when Oreo was released. Why can’t a six month old $150 phone be upgraded? So I paid $159 for an iPhone SE that was released in 2016 and immediately upgraded it to iOS 11.3.
The next reason I like it better is the quality of the apps. I use the Ancestry app daily and I really liked it on my 5.5″ screen. I love it on my 4″ screen because it works more like the website, but it’s optimized for my phone.
My third reason is the camera. My LG had a 13MP camera and my iPhone has a 12MP camera, but the iPhone’s camera uses better quality pixels. There are articles that go in depth on why if you want to do more reading. You can see the difference in these two pictures of my youngest son. The outdoor picture is with my iPhone.
My only complaint is the size is a little difficult to get used to, but everything else more than makes up for it. I bought a wallet case to add bulk and that’s helped some. I do love that I can put it in my bra and you can’t tell it’s there. Lol I couldn’t do that with my old phone.
