lollipop

Not long ago I wrote about my dilemma: Apple or Android, the iPhone 6 or the next Nexus (not knowing what it would be at the time). Oh Nexus 6 how I love thee. Yep. I’m in love. I’ve had the Nexus 5 for a while now and I absolutely love it. I was also the one who went around saying that all these huge cell phones look like mini iPads attached to peoples faces. The Nexus 6 is also huge. And I’m okay with that. I’m looking forward to joining the league of people with mini phablets attached to the side of the face.

My reasoning for this first of all is simple; my eyes /need/ a larger screen. I find myself needing my glasses more and more each week, struggling to see the screen on my phone, and of course, kicking and screaming every minute of the experience. Looking forward to the 6 quad HD display.

Getting back to my geek-girl roots…

  • The Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.7GHz processor and the Adreno 420 GPU will be amazing.
  • An f2.0 lens with a 13 megapixel camera because you know…selfies it’s all about the camera today.
  • 6 hours of use with only 15 minutes of charging? Yes please.
  • 3220 mAh battery; bigger is always better.
  • Looking forward to the new multitasking experience because I’m always all over the place.
  • Lollipop! Android 5.0 will be welcomed with open arms.

I’m really enjoying Android, which I never thought I would after being an Apple girl for many, many, years. But not being in a box anymore, the customization, the apps that are useful to me that aren’t available with Apple, and not being locked in really is great. Don’t get me wrong, I really loved my iPhones. They’re sexy. But I’m loving Andriod much more and I can’t wait to get my hands on the Nexus 6.

I’d love to hear others thoughts who have the iPhone 6 or the Nexus 6.

iPhone-5-Android-Market

I have been an iPhone user since the first iPhone came out. Until a few months ago. I made the leap over to Android and picked up a Nexus 5. I tried to use Android a few years ago, was pretty miserable with it, and quickly ran back to cuddle with my longtime buddy – Apple.

Over the last 10+ years my cell phones get heavy use for work related things and I’m accustomed to using my phone and not carrying around a laptop or a tablet. It’s convenient. Since I made the switch to Android this go-round, my work life has been much easier. Much. My e-mail client Nine is my new best friend, Google docs is my savior, and other apps I use for work along¬†withvthese two are just simple and work flawlessly together. Android has come a long way over the years and I’m loving it.

So what’s the dilemma?

I keep up with tech. I’m a gadget girl. I stalk technology 24/7/365. I dream technology. Okay..maybe I don’t go that far. Maybe. I sold my iPad (that I’ve also used continuously since the beginning, upgrading to the latest and greatest year after year), and purchased a Nexus 7. Love it. I use an Apple laptop for work. I use Android for personal everything.
I love both, but I feel like I get so much more with Android. Then here comes the iPhone 6 and now I find myself struggling. Being a techi-gadget-geek-girl, an Apple and Android lover, what is a girl to do? #firstworldproblems (yes, I did it.)

Now let me say that I am _not_ the techie who has to show off all my latest and greatest gadgets. I’m not the “ooooh…look at me! Look at the new coolness I have!” I research and buy my gadgets wisely based off of what will work best for me then keep them to myself and enjoy them. I mean, there have been times that I’ve researched for over a year and end up purchasing something that’s a little dated – and that’s okay because the latest model wasn’t a good choice.

I’m keeping up with all the rumors and speculations of what’s to come with the iPhone 6 and I’m drooling. I’m seeing the pictures of its beauty. I’m glancing over at my not-so-fancy/kind-of-plain Nexus 5 and understanding that while it’s not sleek, nor fancy, it’s done everything I’ve wanted it to do, easily. But I’m a gadget girl! I want to play with everything new and cool! Everything! What if the iPhone 6 with the new iOS 8 can do everything that I need it to do with ease and grace?

I’m pretty sure I won’t go out and buy an iPhone 6 when it’s released. I’ll watch it. Read the reviews from real world users. And wear a bib…

I would love to hear others opinions on both Android and iOS, what you primarily use it for (work or personal), and why you’ve chosen it. You may offer reasoning that I haven’t thought of (for either) that will help make decisions easier in the future.
