First of all I want to let you know that this is perhaps one of the most controversial and personal articles that I will write in 24enews as I am aware of the article that will fall in the comments … Since 2011 I discovered Android thanks to one Samsung Galaxy SCL – the stupid cousin of the mythical Galaxy S -, My love for technology, and Android in particular, has not stopped growing over time.
A lot of Android phones and tablets have passed through my handas well as other Google products like Chromebooks, which currently not only write in a digital medium like 24enews, but also present the Conectando podcast, which you should definitely subscribe to.
But I won’t fool you, a few years ago I wanted to change my scene and decided to try the competition. After buying an iPhone and a short transition period, I found that iOS met all of my needs. It was an operating system that worked perfectly with no adjustments, it was very stable, and the App Store was full of quality on all four pages. Certainly: It only took me a couple of weeks not to miss our beloved green robot anymore.
After the iPhone came the iPad, a tool that, with a few exceptions such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, has practically no competition. Later other products like AirPods, the Apple Watch and even a MacBook came along. Did I become an Apple fan? Did Apple get me in its ecosystem? I didn’t think but …
Once you enter … how difficult it is to get out!
My personal mobile phone today is the iPhone XR, although that does not mean that an analysis of Android devices does not test them in depth. Although during testing with the ASUS ROG Phone II – the analysis of which will be published in a few days – and given how much I liked the terminal, I decided to use it solely as my only personal smartphone for the time it gave me. I mean, I packed the Apple phone, put it in the box, and put it in the drawer.
Of course, that had many consequences. Primarily the one related to the Apple Watch. Since this device is not compatible with Android phones and I didn’t want to use it, I decided to forego it. Well, I took the watch, put it in the box, and left it with the iPhone. Two Apple devices have already been removed from my life.
What about the rest? Fortunately, the AirPods worked with the ASUS. Certain functions were lost, especially those related to Siri, but nothing serious. Android obviously doesn’t manage to use 100% of the Apple headphones, but these have managed to fulfill their primary function of acting as wireless headphones. As with the iPad and MacBook, both products can be used regardless of the phone you are using. Then, Why did I feel like something was missing?
The ASUS ROG Phone 2 was and is a better phone than the iPhone XR, but something didn’t quite suit me. As I was working, I noticed something was wrong, a kind of emptiness in me. Every time I got a notification I kept an eye on my wrist, where I only found a nice analog watch from the Lotus brand and not my Apple Watch, and let’s not mention the fact that I couldn’t get a document saved on my computer or tablet from my smartphone because I had it saved in iCloud. I had gotten so used to the iPhone that now I felt like when I stopped using it, the rest of my work team was paralyzed.
And in the end I actually understood everything. iOS is no better operating system than Android, and the iPhone is no better phone than any high-end Android. But as has always been said, unity is strength and Apple is number one.

Apple created an ecosystem that once you’ve tried it is very difficult to get out of. The synchronization between each product is brutal, and they all work so well that it’s not impossible to give up once you try Apple out There is no compelling reason for that.
The success of those in Cupertino lies not only in making products of excellent quality, as is done by the rest of the hundreds of tech companies, but in providing consumers with an ecosystem that is easy to use and comfortable for them. consumer To the point that I don’t want to give upEven if your competition brings better items to market.
Certainly, I love Android, I love smartphones, and I love technology. But unless my Apple products break overnight or Google “invents” an ecosystem around Android that comes close to what the young of the bitten apple have to offer, I still see myself watching Apple devices for at least a while use.
Summary for lazy: the Cupertino guys kidnapped me, can someone help me?
