What’s so special about iMessage and FaceTime that because of it people don’t leave iDevices?
I’m often confused when people say that they can’t leave iPhone ecosystem down to 1-2 reasons – iMessage and FaceTime, for example. But in the end, these are just another video and text apps, easily replaceable with Telegram/WhatsApp for example (those do not depend on what OS it’s on). Heard someone who got iPhone only because their family was on iPhone and they had to FaceTime with each other – but just use WhatsApp or G Duo for video for example; that shouldn’t be the only reason to get iPhone.
For iMessage for example, I find them not as useful even, as you can’t respond to a certain message, like you can with Telegram/WhatsApp. Sometimes I feel like it’s a difference between a green and blue bubble (iM vs SMS), really.
FaceTime quality is definitely good, but wouldn’t be the final decision to leave/stay with ecosystem.
