HTC just made the perfect iPhone and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Would I convert? No. I don't like Android. I've given it many tries over the years and it just isn't for me, nothing "just works" like it does on the iPhone.
It's a great decide in theory — comes with the latest iteration of Android, 6.0. It has livable specs, especially the US variant, and it promises timely updates. But is that enough to live in an Android world? No.
I hate that Android makes me concerned with my battery life because it isn't optimized. I hate that there are 20 different applications to accomplish the same task when one isn't greater than the other. I hate that software is never kept up to date and the thing I hate most is that the password that encrypts my device cannot be more than 16 characters.
But HTC just hit a home run, out of the park, past the adjacent rooftops. They nailed the size that I've been begging Apple for, for years. Anyone with half a brain can understand that the 5" point is perfection for a mobile device. The 4.7" is just shy of being great and the 5.5" Plus is just annoying, an annoyance that I've found the time to cope with due to a better battery and OIS.
I don't care that I'm an Apple sheep, FaceTime Audio is coveted by me because it allows me to communicate when the only person I want to talk to is abroad. iMessage means there's never a lapse in communication. Yes, there's whatsapp, but I don't want to rely on third parties if I don't need to.
Why can't Apple just build this damn phone.
