Lifelong iPhone User Switches To The Galaxy S10

Lifelong iPhone User Switches To The Galaxy S10

I’m not gonna lie to you: I
don’t know if I know how to take a screenshot on my phone. It’s like you swipe your phone sideways, and it like shows you,
it’s like, “oh, Bixby,” and it keeps asking me
all these questions. I have no idea what it does. Can I delete it? Does anyone know? Like, can I remove it from my phone? ‘Cause I keep getting
notifications, and I don’t get it. I’m Jacqui Frank. I am head of production for “Business Insider Today,” and I switched to Samsung from Apple. I had iPhones for about a decade, and I had never really reevaluated that decision too seriously. I just kept getting iPhones. So I had the 3, the 4, the 5, the 7, and the 8. The change was really in
the latest batch of iPhones didn’t have anything that I wanted. It was nothing that impressed me. I don’t care about Animojis. I don’t care about augmented reality. I don’t care about live photos. I have no customization, and
so I decided to get the S10 because it has a better camera
and has a bigger screen. It has more processing power, and if I’m paying money for something, why shouldn’t I have the best version? Everyone who has an iPhone is mad that I’ve decided to,
like, give up on iPhone ’cause it’s like some
kind of cult of iPhone, and everyone who has an Android is furious with me that I,
like, willy-nilly decided to join them ’cause it’s
this cult of Android. Like, apparently I’m not
allowed to, like, change my mind at any point, which is
something I didn’t know. So I’ve had the Galaxy S10 for two days. The S10 has this three-camera lineup here, which is unbelievable. We went to scout a location yesterday, and I was able to take
this crazy wide shot from, like, the corner, and now I can just look at that whenever I’m trying to
remember this location. And the other thing, which is a big one, is how attractive all the apps
that I’ve gotten used to are. Like, Instagram just
looks a little different. Some of the stupid games I
play look a little different, and it’s just a better
spacing and formatting. I read a lot of books on my phone, and this phone is a little bit taller, and the screen reaches the edges. It’s a much better experience
than the previous phone was. I was surprised by how
many apps aren’t available as far as Android versus iPhone. One of the obvious apps
that I couldn’t get on the Android versus the
iPhone was Rent the Runway, and someone in the office actually told me that there’s, like, a workaround that I can get it directly
from Rent the Runway, but also, it’s never
been that hard before. Like, I used to be able to
just go on the App Store, and be like, “OK, I’d
like to download that app, thank you,” and it was done. I feel like right now, it’s
a very serious mix between “I’m stupid” and “I don’t
know how my phone works,” and it’s also not as intuitive
as what I was used to. I think it’s like a solid, like, balance between those two things right now, and once I get a handle on
at least one of those parts, maybe I’ll be able to figure it out. But right now, that’s where I’m at. I think I prefer Android
to iPhone right now. I don’t know how comfortable
I am leaning into that. It feels like such a betrayal. I definitely expected
to fall in the category of being like, “What’s
the deal with Android? Why do people like it so much?” Desperately trying to get my iPhone back. Now give me back my iPhone. And that’s just not how I feel. So some of the big things that I like about this phone are the customizations. I feel, with an iPhone, most of the stuff that you can change you really only have an either-or, and for this phone, I feel
like I have so many options. You can have the phone, like, light up when you get a text notification. You can change everything
about that animation. You can have it go in a different way. You can change the color of it, and you can customize it for each app. So right now, all my text
notifications are purple, and I’m obsessed with it. And I actually was
legitimately overwhelmed by how many options I had
for the kinds of widgets I could put on my front screen that I gave up after putting on two, and I like that as soon
as I turn my phone on is the time, the weather, and
how many steps I’ve taken, which are the things that I, like, sometimes look at my phone to know. And then big obvious one is
that this has a headphone jack. While I was on vacation last week, I could both charge my phone and listen to music at the same time. I’m super impressed with
the camera on this phone. It just was able to capture
the colors in the sky and the sand really beautifully, and it did a great job
focusing on the fish that I was trying to take pictures of, and it really shouldn’t
have been able to pick up this beautiful, warm, pink tone of the food that I was eating, and the picture just came out phenomenal. One of the gestures I really like is the one where you can swipe
to call or send messages. Sometimes I can, like,
easily just click on that, send a text, and be like,
“Did you mean to call me?” And I like that it pulls
that up right away. There’s one where you, like,
put your palm on the phone and then flip it over to silence it. There’s a day last week
where I overslept by an hour because my alarm never went off because I guess I must have done this and then flipped it over. So that’s no longer on. There’s one where you, like,
wipe across to do a screenshot, and I need someone to explain to me what the purpose of that is. ‘Cause I can’t figure it out,
it seems more complicated. My brother, a friend of mine from school, and one of my cousins all sent me messages that are randomly strewn
through like a real conversation that we’re having where they, like, decide that they hate the color green. But I currently don’t care at all that, like, they would
rather see a blue text than a green text. Like, who cares? I understand a lot of Android loyalty in a way that I’ve
never understood before, which is that I know a
lot, I know a few people who have been dedicated Android users. They’ve always had an Android phone. They’ve never wanted to switch to iPhone. I never felt quite that same
level of devotion to my iPhone, and I can almost see it with my Android, which I think means I really like it. I’m really working on getting my attitude to be like, “Oh, I don’t
like this. Can I fix it?” And I’m excited to get to a point where I’m as comfortable and confident with this phone as I
ever was with my iPhone. Volume down and power up. Great, and then it saves it, and then I can go to it, great. I’m amazing. I took a screenshot.

  1. I did this exact same thing my first apple phone was a iphone 3 and this month I switched to a samsung s10+ which I love so much better

  2. About the rapid speech: this is a common phenomena with sisters stacking double E and above. The weight pulls on the vocals chords resulting in higher pitch. The breast volume does not support high pitched overtones and compensates for this with increased speed of speech. Hence the curly hair.

  3. 2k dislikes from iPhone users.
    p.s – English isn't my primary language but i am able to understand her. idk why so many people are complaining???

  4. I’ve had both android and 📱, and I have to say I ❤️  more. I ❤️ the 📷 I ❤️ iMessages and iMessage games. I ❤️ how simple they are. You can download songs on android for free BUT you risk getting a derpy audio file. And junk downloaded to you 📱 when that happens.

  5. So I have a Galaxy S8 usually I love my phone but I have to like reset it sometimes Idk what is wrong with my phone rn for example it doesn't turn on/the lock screen is all black and I have to use fingerprint to get in or the time & battery bar disappears or even my homescreen turns black… Idk what is happening. Any advice…

  6. All u guys commenting on the speed of her voice , im scottish and i tend to speak so fast that literally no one can make me out 😅😅 so yeah … she honestly was speaking quiet normally

  7. Samsung surpassed apple in like 2014 lol it's just overall better at every aspect you get more bang for your buck

  8. This is really cool you've sent me over $3652 of this tool now available for you to speed up the registration Great Work…

  9. Apple is only popular for it's media trend and all the bandwagons but overall isn't a good phone. Good choice for switching

  10. On the contrary as an Samsung A10 user ,welcome , less money for apple the sooner it collapses into the heap of shit that it is.

  11. I thought the video was playing at 1.25 so I checked it and it was at normal.

    confused HHHAAAAAAAAHH?!

  12. She used to use Apple iPhone 8 and now she is comparing this thing with the Galaxy S10 which isn't fair. So that doesn't make sense she is like literally comparing S10 with her iPhone 8.

  13. Welcome to android/samsung! Kudos for making the switch, everyone is welcome to switch in either direction – we Americans need to stop this “either you’re with us or against us” thing… I’m a samsung user and I enjoy many of its features. Ive had an IPhone 7 before but it fell way short of the hype, though I do use an ipad.

  14. I have been an android user a long time. Just last year I switched to iPhone XR. It was easy to use plus my family all use iPhone. It good for face time. Plus it connects to my iPad.

  15. Nope, the iPhone XS has more processing power. It also has better video recording on the camera department.
