Work is giving me a phone. Yes I know that they legally have access to everything I do on it and no I don't really care.

I get to pick between the iPhone 6s Plus, or the Nexus 6 P.

I used android before but don't really care about the operating system.

What should I pick and why?

Are you gay? -> iPhone
Not gay? -> Nexus

The fact that some people have to post a webm a a iPhone lagging in a specif situation to prove a point is hilarious. Dont you see the irony? You're pretty much saying the iPhone is better by having to post this to try to convince people of your arguments

Any android phones lags worst and more frequently but making a post to point this is redundant because everyone knows it.

Every executive I've come into contact with uses either BB, WP, or some fucking flipphone even. The rich don't flaunt their wealth with shitty $900 phones that they can buy 20 of every month, they flaunt it with their sports/luxury cars and yachts.

Every iPhone user I've encountered is either sweeping the floors or manning a checkout like. Stay delusional poorfag. :^)

>> No.50818461

Serious answer because I'm afraid of you not getting one.

Take the Nexus as the default because it's cheaper than the iPhone.

Do you need anything that the iPhone does? Are you attached to iMessage? Have you poured money into iTunes? Get the nexus then. It's cheaper and a little bit bigger.

Of course, Android requires more maintenance. There's a certain level of work that you'll have to do to make it "better" than the iPhone, and iPhones do age better. Unless you make the Nexus age well (which isn't hard, but you do have to do it), it won't be as timeless as the iPhone.

Are you going to root/jailbrake? Are you allowed to?

Out of personal preference I'm going to recommend the Nexus 6 because I have one and I love it. Got my mom an iPhone 6 though and she loves it. It's really a matter of preference at that point, they're both very good phones.

Again, preference. I know this board is like 80% shitposting and "le trolling haha" but I think it's purely preference.

If you like messing with settings, and you like trying to optimize things and using the phone purely for its own sake (ie not playing games or using apps but just messing with the system or making your own stuff for it), then Android is 100% the way to go. If you've already spent the money on iTunes or whatever or you don't care about messing with the phone as an OS, just get the iPhone. But even then, if you can afford it it's still nicer to buy cheaper things so that you have more for other things. Spending less is always good.

Updates aren't a problem on the Nexus.

Nexuses get updates directly from Google, and they don't have to go through carriers.

That's why Nexuses are the only Android phones worth getting. Except maybe Sony; they usually don't fuck it up too much.

>> No.50821154

Also, to directly address this comment:

Nexuses were originally intended as developer devices. While they are more marketed and more mainstream nowadays, they still retain their strong developer communities and their ability to be bootloader unlocked OOTB. And no, it doesn't void your warranty.

Well, if you go with Android, the 6P is the right choice.
