So I left my One Plus One for an iPhone 5...

    It turns out that I missed iOS. I also missed the smaller form factor of the older iPhone 5. Does that mean I don't like One Plus? Absolutely not! I loved it and it was tough to part with... but there was just something about the overall experience (both the physical aspect and the OS) which just reminded me that it was just too much for me in particular.

    I understand that some folks love being able to tweak their phone until their hearts are content, but not so much me, at least not in recent years. I remember a time when I would love decking out my built computer with all the max specs and software available. However, as the months passed I found that time, in and of itself, is a really just a currency in our lives. I understand that now I have to literally "spend" that time wisely. And unfortunately I don't have enough interest these days to sit down and really tinker with the device.

    I am not an Apple fan boy by any stretch of the imagination. However, I do understand that their hardware (legacy anyways) and current iOS just happens to work for me at this stage in my life. Will I come back to Android and a One Plus handset? Possibly, but I don't want to commit to anything because I am not sure what the future holds. At the rate technology is advancing today who knows what will be available in the next couple of years...

    What's your take on it and has any one else jumped ship after the honeymoon phase?

    Apple makes great stuff, I don't personally like the closed ecosystem of iOS. But I can see why many people go to it... its very easy to pick up and use. I came to android from the iPhone 5 and have never looked back... I did start out with a awesome device in the Nexus 5, LG G3 now the Oneplus One

    I have thought about "jumping ship" in the past before I was able to make all the elements of the interface pleasing to me. Now with the heavy material design integration throughout the phone and the ability to theme everything I am happy. I no longer have to use my "time" to tinker with design elements.. Through Nova launcher, Textra, and CM theme, I don't have to use any more of my time. It's NOW tailor made for me and it's staying..

    Enjoy your phone. No hard feelings. My wife likes iOS too. We still get along.
