I’m heavily invested in the Google ecosystem, but looking to switch phones. Can I still be a heavy Google user with iPhone?
TL;DR Can I still have a good iPhone experience as a super-integrated Google user?
I don’t mean to intrude, first post here… I’ve been with Android/Google for almost 10 years and I’ve never had an iPhone. I use a ton of Google services and hardware, including Google Home devices, WiFi hardware, Pixel 3 XL, Chromebook, tablets, and then most of their software services such as Gmail, Assistant, Docs, Sheets, Pay, Calendar, Chrome Browser, Contacts, Home, Play Movies, and most importantly PHOTOS.
My latest Android devices have been from Samsung, and most recently the Pixel line. But I might be ready for a change! I’m over the whole customizability thing and I just want a phone that works well, and also today works well in the Google ecosystem. The iPhone 11 Pro has caught my attention due to its camera upgrades. I don’t want the Max because I’m ready to move back to a 1-hand-able phone. Also I have hundreds of dollars invested in the Play Store, but have no problems paying for apps I’ll need from the App Store.
(Yes I know I’ll have a better experience if I integrate other Apple hardware, but that’s not what I want right now, thank you.)
Can I do this? Can I get the newest iPhone to work well in my Google world?
Bonus question for those in the know: I’m a runner with a Garmin Fenix 5X Plus. Is it iPhone friendly?
Thanks for your comments! 👊🏻
(I’m coming from Android 10 and I was a beta user, so I’m already used to, and prefer, gesture navigation.)
