I also appear to have fat fingers, I'm 67 years old and I have a condition called wet macula in my right eye, which causes a problem with focusing close up. When my customers ask for help on their iPhones, typically with E-Mail, I carry a fresnel lens, (kinda like a flat magnifying glass), in my back pocket so I can configure their phone. When I'm finished I REALLY can't see straight

    I'm making 2 points here, the first being that Apple just doesn't make a phone large enough for me to use comfortably. The second point is that as much as every one says that the i devices just work, I get an awful lot of calls from average people asking my help with them.
    I can't speak for your customers. But when i say just works back in ghe day it used to mean just that but now android has truly evolved to where newer android smartphones work well out of the box. But the iphone is easier to learn because there really isn't much to it. You slide to unlock then click on an icon. For the most part you can not do anything else unless it is jailbroken. Because of that it is easier for any one regardless of tech knowledge to pick up and be ready to go. Are there people who need help with their i products, sure i see people at best buy all the time asking about the basics from contacts to how to use itunes. But because the iphone is basically the same on all devices whether i have an ipod touch, iphone, or ipad i can learn or show someone else how to use another iproduct. That is not necessarily the case with android because jb is different than gb, not by much, but enough so that i can not just tell someone where to go in settings based on my device. And with carrier skins it adds for even more confusion for people not use to android. The other thing with android is that not all apps work. We see it all the time where a developer fixes a problem for one device and breaks it for another. This has improved a lot over the years as engineers have found away to improve on that. But we still see it from time to time.

    Is apple devices perfect, by no means, i have seen them freeze and stutter as well. But apple does a better job controlling their product which allows them to limit fragmentation and keep devices on the same playing field software wise. That is the one area Google has yet to control, fragmentation. But with Google experience and nexus devices they are looking to try and change that at least for a select market.

    @PC747 - I completely agree. I also run into the same types of problems supporting the various versions of Windows when trying to provide phone support while driving.

    I have one really big (long time) complaint with Google. When they originally began assembling standards, like the home button and the back button it's as if they didn't really expect it all to get as popular as it did, so they didn't go far enough. A really really great example is how to do a hardware factory device/data reset, I have been through that problem with tablets on another forum and it's very frustrating. They really could have made something like that a standard, among other things. The other issue is the number of devices that still use Froyo after all this time, (not really Google's fault on that one), but they have made a lot of, (major) changes over a relatively short period of time. So here again, that's both a good thing and a potrentially bad thing depending on who you talk to.

    If you like for a phone to "own you" instead of YOU "owning your phone" then iPhone will be the right choice, if you are OK with horrible battery, non removable SD card, then..iPhone is for you!!!!!!, I've had all cell phones, Apples, berries and Droids, and all I can say is that by far, even after buying the S4 and returning it to go back to my note 2, It has been THE NOTE 2, no phone compares to it, performance, picture and the battery is the same or perhaps maybe one hour less than the MAXX...The note 3 its coming by September/October...Before you do that horrible transition, I would strongly suggest you to wait for the NOTE 3 to come out and test it and play with it, cause the only phone that could be better than the NOTE 2, definitely will be the NOTE 3....

    Nice idea but sounds much better said than done. No way i am giving anyone a note 2 because they want to leave android. I am more than happy to allow them to go to apple world. Whatever phone they are wanting to give up i will gladly take. Bk i would love to help out with your fund (ok no i wouldn't) but i have a note 4 active Google experience edition to save up for.
