Switching from one mobile platform to another can make for a jarring transition but oftentimes users can find something to like in their new mobile OS. Such was not the case with Business Insider’s Matt Johnston, who last fall switched from the iPhone 5 to the Galaxy Note 3 and started regretting his decision after about two months. In the end, Johnston believes his choice to go to Android has been a “disaster.”
“Android is a hot mess,” he explains. “It doesn’t seem to have native support for anything. My Spotify app doesn’t seamlessly work within Android’s confines, which make quickly stopping and starting music a pain.”
And he doesn’t stop there. Here are his other main gripes:
In the end, Johnston’s complaints mostly boil down to having to do too much work to get his phone to behave as he wants it to. While many Android fans love the platform’s more extensive customization options, Johnston feels that it’s just not for him.
“The future of technology is not in increasingly complex user experiences geared towards customization, it’s a movement towards seamless integration in our everyday lives,” he concludes. “Android (and Google) is getting it very, very wrong.”
