    Can someone explain to me how 3D touch is any different than the long press, which was a standard android feature since like forever?

    3D Touch just works better IMO the hard to soft tap really works well and is useful...it will also be the center of things to come for iOS ...especially when they get rid of home button later on down the road ...

    @pc747 , thanks for the link/video re 3D touch. I had no idea it was that much different than Androids long press option. I almost temporarily banned bk for his blasphemous comment.

    Lol. Ooops...... I just asked this question in the other thread. My sister and brother in law just switched to spring and both got iPhones. They really like them but say it's a big switch from Android.

    It's just a different mindset in how to get from point a to point b. They both get you where you want to go but differently. Do you want to video call or facetime call? Do you want to text or whatever Apple calls their iPhone to iPhone texting? On-screen widgets and custom launchers are about the biggest differences anymore except where Apple just took a huge leap over Android with their ability to DELETE bloatware, not just freeze it.

    The only bloat ware that bothers me on devices is what verizon pushes onto me. I don't mind the manufacturer specific apps.

    True that but as an example you loathe Safari browser. If what I'm seeing is true you can change defaults, unlike in the past, after deleting Safari. That was my gripe before, not being able to change default apps in so many areas.

    Yep, it is possible these days. How to Choose Your Default Applications on an iPhone or iPad
    Its still not enough to make me switch. Too many other frustrating Apple issues to deal with.
    ....but that's just me.

    That's me as well but things like that could cause some that are just fed up with slow-no firmware updates, lack of available accessories the way iPhone has, built in carrier bloatware, etc to

    I love that Crapple added the ability to remove bloatware

    The smartphone landscape continues to change as do we. 2 years ago I could not evan fathom a device that was not unlocked or rooted and I know @bkdodger was probably the same. But as we continue to see the lines blur between android and apple it makes for some awesome devices. 3-4 years ago android was the the free land that just could not get the camera right, bring swift updates, or operate without lag. While iOS had the nice camera and smooth OS, it lacked any form of an identity that separated my iPhone from everyone else's. One size, one way to do apps, and slow changes. It was like Apple was ok with keeping the iPhone in the slow lane.

    Now we are seeing multiple android phones with great cameras, awesome build quality, and mid end android devices performing better than high end phones of yesteryear. And Apple is starting to do a little more than be vanilla with the iPhone. With more houses divided I enjoy that we are at a point in tech where we are seeing people care less and less about the OS of the phone.
