THINKING of coming from Android to iOS.

in iPhone edited January 2014

I am considering coming from an Android platfrom over to an iPhone 5. And, I have some questions. Perhaps here might be a good place.

-YEARS of Google, Gmail,'s all there. What happens to all of that? Can I use my Gmail/Google Drive/Google Keep (notes), etc...can I use it on an iPhone? Play Music? All of the music and videos that I have stored?

-Will the 5 get the iOS 7 upgrade? Free? I think I 'heard' this fall it'll be released. It appears very nice and actually is what may sway me to try an iPhone 5.

-Have any of you came from an Android platform? How did that transition/migration go for you? Did you miss all of the storage you get with an Android phone microSD card?

-Camera..My Razr Maxx makes absolutely perfect pictures that I've enlarged up to 11x14 printed and they are flawless. How, in reality, does the iPhone compare to that? (For the ex-Android user to answer, I guess)

-The screen size is definatly smaller than my Maxx.


I know I can search these things, but I wanted insights from REAL people and users here, if possible. If not, that's ok as well.


These are things I'm thinking about as I consider this move from familiar to totally unfamiliar.

Thank you.

    Yes... Google works on iOS ... there's an App for that.


    The camera on iPhones has been widely critiqued as among the best point-and-shoot cameras out there ... but opinions are like belly-buttons.


    Screen-size (and therefore, device size) is a matter of personal preference... I prefer a device that fit's in my pocket, so a 7" phone wouldn't really please me anyway.  But if you only ever carry it in your purse (or is it called a satchel?), I can see how a larger screen might be desirable.
