It took only two weeks since writing the letter to myself trying to stop myself switching away from Android. Guess what, it didn't work. Last night I ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 128GB.
So what happened?
It was all triggered by my twins being born. Congrats, yes, thanks. They're healthy, great, and tiring. I spend a fair amount of time with a son in one arm, and a phone in the other. As I wrote in my previous post, I currently own a Nexus 6p, which is a 5.7", also known as: pretty darn big, heavy and not that comfortable to operate with one hand. That's problem number one, number two is the camera. Practically all pictures taken off my first since were iPhone pictures, and they're pretty decent. Not pro level, but good, made instantly, never had a complaint. The Nexus 6p has a reasonable camera, but not as nice as my old iPhone 6. Meeting problem, it sometimes takes 2 seconds to snap the picture which can mean it missed the moment.
Case in point:
Here's my oldest son blowing out the candles during his third birthday last week:
Yeah, that's a shame. Don't remember having such issues with an iPhone. You're phone's camera is a big deal, especially if you have kids growing up. And I do... An army of them.
So, size, weight and camera kicked off the doubts once more. The way my brains work, this then results in revaluation of just about every pro and con, and guess what, things tipped over to the iPhone side again.
So I'm eagerly awaiting my iPhone 7. See you again Android, perhaps in another couple of years...
