I'm so happy to see this thread.
I too am going to switch over to Android from Apple. For me, this is a done deal, no matter what, regardless of what most of my friends and family are saying to try and change my mind.
I admit to being something of an outright hater of Apple. Let's just say that my experience with an IPhone, the first smart phone I ever bought, which I got two years ago and am almost finished paying it off, was so bad that I am swearing off all Apple products. It was a nightmare like experience for me.
I too am trying to decide what kind of android phone I want to get when the time comes to buy a new phone.
I admit to wanting a Samsung phone so bad, mostly because I was a huge Samsung fanboy back between 2005-2008, back during the age of flip phones and when I could actually see for the most part.
If I ended up going with a Samsung phone, I'll probably want to get a Galaxy 7 simply because it still has a physical button for the home. I mean, I understand that they're smart phones but seriously! Stop taking all of our physical buttons away from us!
Though I've heard some interesting things about Galaxy 8. Not so sure about Galaxy 9 though.
I've also heard some good things about Pixel and Nokia, so I might look into them as well.
Honestly, I just want a decent phone that is accessible and will work right. I want to be able to listen to music and watch movies and view documents without having to deal with a terrible forced program like ITunes. I want to be able to check my messages and email with no hassil. I want to actually be able to make calls and receive/check voice messages without any problems.
I blog a lot, mostly with Tumblr and Wordpress and I've been curious to know how accessible, if at all, are either or both apps with an android screen reader.
I also do a good bit of Youtubing and would like to have a decent camera to take videos with......
