    Question 1.)

    Does anyone have tips, or experiences about Switching from iOS to Android? I use everything Google. (Drive,Gmail,Hangouts,Chrome,etc) I've spent quite a bit of money on iOS apps, ($75+) and I know you can't get them on the other platforms, but I'd still like to see what's available.

    Question 2.)

    I'd really like the One Plus One, but if for some crazy reason I wasn't able to get one, What would be the next best Android phone? Don't say Samsung.

    Question 3.) **For fun?**

    What device do you have now? And/or Do you have multiple Devices?
    I carry an 8gb iPhone 4 (Verizon *cough* 3g's terrible *cough*) Which I use solely for texting/calling. I carry a 32Gb iPod Touch 5G for just about everything else. (better battery, processor, camera, etc.

    EDIT: (I HAVE MANY OTHER IOS DEVICES, so the apps isn't much of a concern.)

    the only real pain for me was moving contacts across! If all your contacts are backed up to iCloud you can log in on a computer and export them all! That's the easiest way! Although mine we'rent synced properly and in the end manually added all my contacts again! :(

    You are entitled to your opinion on what sucks, but with all things it's a learning curve. I now someone who had went from an iPhone to a galaxy and granted he missed some things he actually enjoys the experience of android. If you want something other than the opo, look into the Sony z series or lg g series

    since you're an apple user and don't care about specs (just kidding),
    i'd get the htc one m8.

    looks great and has everything you need.

    I've done it back and forth before. Its just a matter of getting android setup the way you like it. The biggest issue will be iMessage and disconnecting that prior to switching. That way people who text you don't get stuck in this black cloud.

    Android phones - try em out. LG G3 seems like a great phone. HTC One M8 as well. Both are larger phones. Not sure what is out there that is smaller in size and closer to the iPhone 4 or 5 other than the samsung mini S4/S5...

    I'm totally fine with going from iOS to Android. I've had experience with android, but on an Archos tablet. (2010) so Android 2.3 wasn't too great, then going on to Honeycomb.

    I'm a huge iOS, Android guy, so I've had experience with all of these flagship phones, but not personally, as in being able to put it in my pocket and go on with my day answering messages, etc. Big phones aren't a problem.

    For apps you can always just look up apks for apps on android and get them for free. Only app ive ever paid for on android was tasker. Only app thats really worth the money but other apps and games just get apks and you wont have to worry about paying

    I have the nexus 5, only gripe I have is the camera isn't the best and the battery life is alright. Other than that it is the purest Android experience you can get

    Haha, I've already paid for it on iOS, so it shouldn't be classified as pirating :p
