    Its funny how ignorant iPhone users are. The bubble comes out green because the text doesn't come from iMessage, not because its Android. You could use a third party texting app on an iPhone and the bubble will still come out green. Just shows you how mindless isheeps are.

    When trying my friend's iPhone I was so frustrated with the fact that I can't move the apps out of my way. She said "just put them all into one folder". Why not just have an app drawer so I can see my wallpaper?

    A real purpose of the green message is that you cannot send picture mms due to the green color message. If you have blue message bubble then you can send by use mms (multimedia message).

    Well, I am prefer Apple because I believe security is important in my life. Samsung is good but often vulnerable to the wireless, and other issues. I have Samsung or Android phones for over five years. I have also Apple iPhone for over five years too.

    The thing she didn't understand is how to fully customize the android to what she likes and what fits her. Android has 1000s of home launchers. And 1000s of other customizing apps. And once you customize your Android to what you prefer? Then you have such a smooth opperating experience. With iPhone you just can not customize the os as much as you can with Android! That's one the main reason I'm an android fan. I did what she did before. I switched from android to an iPhone 6s. I did not like it. So I went back to android. And here I will stay!

    Ive been considering a switch to a pixel for some time after using an iphone for quite a few years. I wouldnt consider myself diehard, but deeply entrenched. This video just pushes me further towards the pixel. I know she only mentioned the camera being better, but its a massive difference. All other things considered being very similar and just getting used to a new interface, Pixel has way more to offer from what I've seen. Gonna be hard for me to switch but it seems like the right time to take the plunge.

    And side note: I understand that you cant do it for forever, but giving a new interface a week when youve used the other for years hardly seems fair. Ive heard from other diehard iphone users who switched that it took them somewhere between 1 to 2 weeks to get used to the pixel. Once they did though, they were sold on it easily.

    The point at which you ask , " Why is there so much dead space here " establishes your intellectual maturity. You need everything managed for you and individuality or making your device a tad more personal by customisation are concepts alien to you.
    Android is definitely beyond your cognitive capabilities. Stick with iphones.

    • Jonathan Torres
      Jonathan Torres 11 days ago

      Malachi Taylor nope, it’s on apple. All these people that hate on apple say their OS sucks in comparison to Android and whatnot. They hate on apple for their prices, they hate on apple for their camera quality, they hate on apple for their storage capacity, they just hate on apple for every little thing that they do. Clearly it’s just a biased view of Android fans...

    I mean she's right. Apple is for people who don't care nor want to be bothered with anything. They don't care about the price, they want to change things or customize, because they are to dumb for that. They want already set path and they will just blindly follow that path, they don't want to think about what they buy.
