It can't be any worse. I purchased my first and last iphone last yr. It is awful. I'll be going back to Android when it dies.

It’s all in what you get used to. I’ve been using Apple products for about 5 years now. I was on Android before that. I don’t think my experience with Android is a fair assessment of android today, I’m sure the bugs I ran into back then are no longer an issue. I kept breaking devices back then but now I know all of the high end devices use premium materials, which Apple has basically done from the start. Apple to be fair does not really see a lot of benefit other than integration. Between my iPad working with my iPhone and seamlessly jumping between the two while using AirPods and then plugging into my truck for CarPlay, every thing I do for the most part ties back to my device. Coming in cold from an Android and not benefiting from integration, iOS feels very locked down lacking customization and missing some basic features that Android does have.

So strange. It’s what we have always gotten as our company phone and I’ve never had an issue. My only real complaint would be the constant push for monthly cloud “fee”.

I can see that. For me it’s just use as is. But, if you wanted to alter it, Apple isn’t the product.

Funny, I wanted to try Android/Samsung but IT said no...must be the phones only.

I can say without a doubt if I had it as a stand-alone device I would have a Galaxy Note series.

I have a Macbook Pro and will be getting another when it dies. It has been indestructible. I am not a brand blowhard - I call it like I see it.
The iPhone I own is garbage where I need it - in cold weather and off grid. When I've used it below 30 degrees, it dies within an hr from full charge unless I keep it in airplane mode. In contrast, my buddy's Pixel has amazing performance in the areas where we go. That alone leaves the iPhone dead to me.

Batteries don’t last. I usually run a battery case too. Although my 6plus doesn’t suffer from it, I’ve heard of high or low temp issues.

While I’ve heard of these issues I’ve never seen them. I’ve used iPhones in Phoenix, Las Vegas, and in the extreme cold in Wisconsin winter. I have had people show me that warning in Vegas on their iPhones though. The only difference I noticed if it even matters for cooling is that I don’t use a case.

Community service notice: if you have issues and manage to kill an iphone Apple will tell you any data not backed up is lost. Its true they don't offer a data recovery service but there are people who do (iPad Rehab, etc). Apple currently won't acknowledge these services (or even admit they exist).

Best thing is to back up your stuff, obviously.

ha - I wish I could "burn" my gov issued phone. I once dropped my blackberry on a submarine and it fell two decks and landed on a steel grate. I was initially thrilled because I assumed it had exploded.. no such luck. Not even a scratch :raised:

I found my blackberry one of the most intuitive, ergonomic phones I've ever owned. When it comes to technology, I need all the help I can get, and it was just so easy to use. I had to give mine up when I left a job, and by then they were on their way out, so I never got another.

I had a govie issued one for a few years. I like it. But they definitely got behind on technology it seemed.
