Hi Steve & All,

I agree with you Steve that it's great that the choice isn't about
accessibility but about lifestyle.  I've always got on fine with my
iphone and been able to do what I wanted but I do like the idea of not
being tied down to the apple way of doing things and the phones are
certainly generally cheaper which is good.

Keep your thoughts coming folks but let's not get into one being
definitely better than the other.

Best wishes,

Sarah

at the end of the day, it depends on what you want to use the device for.
when I really got going with the iPhone, I wanted to use it as my portable
media device, and as my high quality audio or video recorder. it was there
however, that I ran in to the affore mentioned iTunes only issue. this is
why I am now so pleased with my android phone, as I can finally do that with
out the aggravation.

And this is my point.  None of this is to do with accessibility, just
lifestyle and choice.  Isn't it great?  I don't like the Apple walled garden

either, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from using them.

All the best

I would say that you would gain better and easier connectivity and
transferring with android, as you can just go through windows in the normal

way, and can also I believe bluetooth files between phones, unlike with the

iPhone, where one has to mess about with pesky iTunes and that's one's only

option.
this was the main reason for me getting an android phone, as I was just sick

of the aggravation when it came to getting media such as audiobooks, movies,

music, etc. on to the iPhone, and videos or recordings off of it.
I have a samsung note 8 and a sony X Z premium, and I also think that
certainly as far as the note 8 goes, the internet browsing is actually
better than on the iPhone.
hope this helps.

Hi all,

 My contract with O2 is about to finish and I'm looking at what new
phone I get.  I've had an iPhone since they first came out and am well
used to using them and Voiceover however I know that android
accessibility has come a long way in the pst few yers.  So my genuine
question is what would I gain / lose if I switched to an android phone
and if so what particular models do people have experience of using?

In terms of what I do on my iphone it's the usual mail, web browsing,
FB, twitter, banking etc.  I don't use applemusic as I have spotify
but I do also use the Netflix ap.

I await genuine feedback.

Regards,

Sarah
