iPhone is just easier to use, no nonsense. That’s what I want. For example,
today I wanted to print a text message. It took me an hour to figure out on
Android and had to use the $9 app. On the iPhone the same thing took me 10
seconds with no extra app add ons. Android is difficult to use. I will
never get one. Android also has malware, viruses, fake apps stealing data
etc, Facebook stealing phone call data, etc. etc.
