Hello everyone,

Welcome to #TheAndroidExperience. If you’re wondering, #TheAndroidExperience is where I test out Android for the first time ever for a full 7 days! It just kicked off today (3/24/2015), and I’m very excited about it! For those of you who know me well, you will know that this will be VERY interesting, since I have used an iPhone or iPod Touch my entire life. I will list my setup at the bottom of the post. The purpose of this post is to serve as a hub where you can check in all week and see the latest updates. Of course, I won’t leak everything! Just a few things on my mind about it. For the FULL experience, you can watch the video at the end of the week that I’ll update this post with šŸ™‚

Let’s begin!

3/24/2015

It’s the first day of the Android Experience, and here’s just a few things on my mind:

Biggest like so far are notifications
Biggest dislike so far is the keyboard (just cause Iā€™m not used to it). Also, the OS doesn’t feel very “tied in” and doesn’t seem to “flow well” like iOS does.
Kinda sorta missed iPhone.

It’s day 2 and I’m hooked. I’ve gotten used to the keyboard, and I’m not missing my iPhone. Instead, I’m hoping this great experience could be shorter, cause as soon as I get all used to it in one week, it’ll be time to give it back..

Today was the battery test. Here are the results:

Battery test: 14% @ 8:41PM (I plugged it in at this point).

I also learned that SwiftKey can do SO much more on Android then it can on iOS.

It’s day 3, and I have not much to say. I’m lovin’ this experience so far!

3/27/2015

It’s day 4. Today I’ve been out all day and the S4 has done an outstanding job!

3/28/2015

Today went great.

3/29/2015

Another wonderful day, and reality finally hits. Tomorrow is the very last day I get to spend with the heaven. šŸ™

3/30/2015

This is it, guys. It’s the last day I’ll get to spend with the wonderful Samsung Galaxy S4. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, and there is no excitement to switch back to my iPhone.

The end!

here are the end results

SETUP:

For this experience,

I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.4.2 and the Nova launcher. I do realize this is a somewhat old phone, but I’m mainly judging the software. It was all I could get my hands on and I am grateful that the owner was willing to let me borrow it! After all, the entire experience would be nothing without the help of the phone owner.
