Not impressed by the iPhone 6? Here’s a complete guide to switching from iOS to Android

iOS Vs Android

It seems like Apple fans are pretty impressed with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, for the most part. By the time launch weekend was over, Apple had sold more than 10 million new iPhones. But as the saying goes, “you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” There are undoubtedly some current iPhone users looking to upgrade who want nothing to do with either of Apple’s new smartphones, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

If you’re a current iPhone user who may soon be purchasing a new Android phone — Motorola’s awesome new Moto X and Samsung’s hotly anticipated Galaxy Note 4 are both about to launch — you should know that switching can sometimes be a complicated endeavor. But luckily, there’s plenty of help out there to make the move as painless as possible.

FROM EARLIER: Here’s what happens when a longtime iPhone user switches to Android

There are many guides that look to help iPhone and iPad users switch to an Android smartphone or tablet, but some of them are a bit complex and not exactly user-friendly. So when ZDNet published its complete guide to switching from iOS to Android on Wednesday, we definitely wanted to take a moment to share it.

Unlike most guides, this new one starts from before you even purchase a new smartphone. It helps users consider whether or not to even make the switch to Android, and then further assists by helping to lay out some options. Then, if the user decides to make the move, the guide will help him or her transfer important data from the old iPhone to the new Android handset.

Are you considering taking the leap? ZDNet’s guide is linked below in our source section.
