More on the iPhone 7 Plus screen dimness issue – disappointed with Apple’s false advertising, but what can I do? — 2 Comments

  1. At the moment I’m so upset at Apple I feel like completely getting away from their whole ecosystem and going full Windows and Android. Would that be cutting off my nose to spite my face?

    Maybe, maybe not. I know a number of people who have gone from iOS to Android or the reverse and they’ve all eventually been comfortable with their new environment.

    My experience with iPhones is limited to briefly using those belonging to friends to take a photo or check a web page or something. My sense of it is that, aside from the obvious OS differences, they’re pretty similar to my various Samsung Galaxy S-whatevers of the same generation over the years. At one time I was a Motorola fan, but after getting a bad one I switched to Samsung – and when Samsung inevitably does something I dislike I expect I’ll move on to something else. For me, that freedom to change hardware is more important that the actual OS.

  2. I guess I’ll have to decide based on “practical loss” vs “the principle of the thing.” I will say, though, that while I was thinking of upgrading my three year old MacBook Pro, I don’t feel like giving more money to Apple anymore until they resolve this.
