Google’s Switch-To-Android Site Helps Sad iPhone Users Get Tech Happy Again

switch iphone to android

If you are currently using an iPhone, chances are you are sad. Why do I assume that you are sad? We all know that you’d rather be on Android, yet you keep hesitating to break free because all of your out-of-touch friends who still think iPhones are a status symbol and that they’ll be left behind without iMessage, won’t join you. And look, they probably never will, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t time to find happiness. You deserve this, my friend.

To help your transition over to a smartphone world filled with diversity, openness, and less “courage,” Google has put together a simple set of steps on a newly revamped Switch website. The steps to get you easily over to Android from iOS are pretty easy and basically involve installing Google Drive. I’m not kidding, it’s that easy. 

In the tutorial, which you can find here, Google shows you that migrating to Android is as simple as installing Google Drive, telling it what you want backed up (contacts, calendar events, photos & videos), letting it finish backing up, and then signing in to your same Google account on your new Android phone to let everything restore. Oh, don’t forget to kill iMessage too.

To get started, install the Google Drive iOS app.

    Owned 4 different Android phones before switching to the iPhone and I have no regrets. Sure, I can do the all custom stuff but I don’t need it anyway. I’ve had the phone 2 years now and it still works as good as the day I bought it. I could never say that for an Android phone. They always started slowing down and getting buggy. And it’s true, the IOS apps just work better. My wife is already regretting her Galaxy 7 purchase and she’s only had it less than 6 months.

    Funny to say but I finally have switched over to Apple full time. What I do online every day. And, what I need a phone/tablet/computer for… iPhone, iPad Pro, and MacBook do it for me. I like the simplicity and the ease of use and design Apple has going for it’s products. It makes getting things done much easier and quicker. I still have a few Android products laying around that never get any use anymore. I tinker with them rarely and that’s about it. I just like my Apple Products. And, does that make me an Apple fan? No. Why? Because, I still have a lot of respect for Android. It has come a very long way. And, for some things it really does have Apple beat. But, thing is I really don’t need all of that. I just want to get things done and not spend time waiting. And, deal with Manufacturer bloatware/Carrier Bloatware. A lot of Windows Products come with bloatware and Windows 10 just really ticked me off with all the data it collects about you. Meanwhile I’m dealing with Safari literally asking for permission to use Flash Player on OS X. So, I mean it’s a little annoying being asked to use Flash but hey Apple really keeps its products secure and that I cannot argue with. So, it’s worth it. A lot of people under estimate Apple. End of rant. Haha.

  • Duffman

    I found this article funny. I’m switching back to iOS come next year with iPhone 8. I’ve been a long time Android user and I’m tired or being frustrated with updates, hardware, wear… I’m just ready for something different.

  • Me

    Although I do miss the simplicity of Android, I am content with my 7. If Nokia or Google knock it out the park next year, I’ll more than likely be back.

  • Stabby McKnifington

    My choice of phone that works for me is better than your choice of phone that works for you!

  • Butt Crack

    How about an application that will backup text messages from iOS and restore on Android?

  • What’s an iPhone?

    • Defenestratus

      Think of a smartphone with training wheels 😛

  • AvalancheRyder

    Is the whole status symbol of an iPhone still a thing? I never understood that. How much of a status symbol can it be when 42% of the US population is using an iPhone?

  • JC

    Yawn.

  • vOc627

    Hi Kellex. Visiting Droid-Life since my OG Droid. Have you noticed more and more iOS users visiting the site? I’m curious if a chunk of your readers are previous Android users who just enjoy the site and like to keep up with tech in general.

  • vOc627

    Long time Android user here and also on an iPhone 7+. No complaints, no regrets. It isn’t a hesistation to lose a status symbol (lol?) or the lack of iMessage. To me, both platforms have become more and more alike. It would essentially feel like a lateral move and that doesn’t justify the effort. I’ll wait for Google to have a clear, above and beyond better device (hardware and software).

    • NexusMan

      Guess you missed it.

      • LaFave07

        Lol which device?

  • Rex Tillman

    You know what is sad? The fact that you even wrote this article with the thought process, likely, that the comments would be filled with “apple bashing” people. From reading though, it looks like it backfired.

    Went to an iPhone earlier this year after starting with a Droid Incredible and I dont see any reason to ever return, period.

    • Chill bro. There’s plenty of sarcasm in this article.

      • Rex Tillman

        Not likely. As a reader of this site from when it started out the site owner is clearly a bit salty of the iPhone. Obviously, it’s a site about Android and Android only, but the article is written with the pretense that “most iPhone owners are sad”. That is not sarcasm, that is just bad writing.

        I haven’t been to the site in months, and after checking it out today, it is clear as to why I wont be back again. A shame really, as the other writers are MUCH better at journalism than the owner/author of this article.

        • NexusMan

          I really enjoyed the writing.

          • I did it too, it was tongue-in-cheek and not malicious at all.

        • Bye Felicia!

        • T4rd

          Yeah, Kellen was clearly salty of iPhone owners, esp. given that he had a staff member for years that was primarily an iPhone user for the explicit reason to compare and contrast the current states of iOS and Android.

          I do miss Ron though and wish they would bring him or another iOS user back to the staff again.

    • NexusMan

      lol. a lot has changed since the Droid Incredible…a lot has changed since earlier this year.

  • Stringfellow31

    Until Android had some sort of Continuity type replacement, I don’t think I can switch. It’s awesome not having my phone always near when I’m at home, I can use MacBook or iPad to make our receive calls and text.

    • NexusMan

      It’s called Hangouts.

      • RazorSky

        Also Pushbullet or a service like that. Or Verizon Messenger+ also has cross platform just like imessage.

        • NexusMan

          Yup.

      • LaFave07

        Oh really? You can receive voice calls from hangouts on a computer from your carrier phone number? I think not.

        • NexusMan

          I don’t think you included those specifics in the post I responded to.

          • LaFave07

            Lmao maybe because it should be a given?

            People use their carrier phone number 99.9% of the time.

          • NexusMan

            Oh, thanks. I haven’t polled “people” on the matter. Now, are those “iPhone people,” or “Android people?” Or perhaps, “Other people?”

          • LaFave07

            All people with a smartphone. Most people I know don’t even know what a Google Voice number is. And they sure as hell wouldn’t port out to it because it’s a huge inconvenience. You wouldn’t be getting HD Voice and you’d have to rely on Google keeping Voice around. With their history who the hell knows what will happen to Google Voice in a year.

            Plus I’ve even seen some online forms not allowing Google Voice numbers.

            Just admit it. Hangouts is inferior to Apple’s Continuity abilities.

      • Stringfellow31

        So you can receive and send texts and calls from Hangouts on the desktop and tablet? I don’t think you fully comprehend the functionality Continuity provides.

        • NexusMan

          Yes.

  • Defenestratus

    I’m glad so many people enjoy their iPhones.

    Just remember while reading their comments, that they are rancid goat turds.

    That is all.

  • Troy

    Lol. I enjoy both platforms but to call iPhone users sad is just silly. It’s all about personal preference but I don’t see why anyone would be sad to own the latest iPhone or the iPhone 6s.

    • NexusMan

      No headphone jack? No longer superior camera? Bigger and heavier than Android alternatives? Closed ecosystem? Not much of an upgrade over last year’s model? Huge delay for the arrival of Airpods? Those are just a few reasons right off of the top of my head.

      • LaFave07

        I gurantee most top Android phones next year won’t have a headphone jack

        The camera on the iPhones are superb, still better than 99% of all Android phones

        What are you talking about? The 4.7″ iPhone 7 is the perfect size and weight

        Stock Android is pretty barebones IMO

        Who cares if it’s closed? As long as it has all of the apps you need

        I’d say the A10 chip and water resistance is a pretty decent upgrade.

        Lol you’re really going to complain about a late arrival of an accessory? I still can’t even order a 128GB Pixel if I wanted from Google.

        • PoisonApple31

          One feature you could take from stock Android is the auto-correct and put that in iOS. =)

          • LaFave07

            ? iOS does have autocorrect

          • PoisonApple31

            It is terrible – sorry that went over your head.

          • LaFave07

            I don’t have a problem with it. And I could always use the Gboard if I wanted.

        • NexusMan

          Like the 1st person to reply to my comment, you seem to think that everyone shares the same opinions and needs as you. I listed several reasons why many people would feel sad about their iPhones. Not reasons why YOU do. Claim the iPhone 7 plus is the perfect size is ridiculous because different people are comfortable with different sizes. As for features… I don’t know how long you’ve had an iPhone, but most of the iPhones truly useful software additions over the past several years existed in Android 1st…often by several gens.

          • LaFave07

            Your reasons for not being happy with an iPhone weren’t very good so I thought I’d let you know 🙂

          • NexusMan

            Oh thanks. I can sleep well now. And for the THIRD and FINAL time…they were not my opinions. Why is that simple concept so hard for you to understand. Someone said they couldn’t see why “anyone” would feel sad about an iPhone, and I listed several reasons why “anyone” could or would.

            It’s hard to take anyone seriously who can’t tell the difference between a personal opinion and a direct response to a statement regarding “anyone” in the general populous.

            Let me guess, you didn’t even realize in my comments I mentioned nothing about my own use cases, my own phones or the Pixel, right?

            Move on. You can see what you want to see…that doesn’t make it appear.

          • LaFave07

            Ok you’re basing this on the word “anyone.”

            This is why “anyone” would or could be sad with a Pixel.

            It’s a blatant design copy of an iPhone?

            Doesn’t come with headphones?

            No water resistance?

            No wireless charging?

            No stereo speakers?

            It doesn’t offer more storage options than 128GB?

            Their Google Account was disabled for buying a second Pixel to resell?

            Not much of an upgrade over last year’s 6P?

            It’s only getting OS updates for two years?

            Getting apps after iOS
            (Mario Run)?

            It’s a lot more expensive than last year’s models and offers nothing more than Android phones $200-$300 less (OnePlus 3T)?

      • Troy

        I mainly used Bluetooth headphones so the removal of the headphone jack doesn’t bother me. Aren’t rumors hinting that the Galaxy S8 won’t have a headphone jack as well? Don’t see your point , especially since Apple wasn’t even the first to remove it (Motorola was).

        Bigger and heavier? You neee to be specific. I switched the the 7 and it feels light and small in my hands.

        Inferior display? Maybe in terms of resolution but I hope you know that there’s more to a display than just the resolution. Are you one of those guys that buys cheap 4K TVs and think that your panel is better than a more expensive 1080 TV?

        Slow in adopting features? I don’t know about that. Lately they’ve been on top of things. Pretty much to the point where the only reason why I want a jailbreak is for cheaper tethering.

        Closed ecosystem? As in you can only download apps from Apple’s App Store (which isn’t even true anymore)? Not a big deal. According to polls on this site, most android users who visit this site don’t even root or unlock their device’s bootloader so open vs close ecosystem doesn’t matter unless you want to pirate apps (since the lack of root makes open ecosystem worthless). How come Google doesn’t support ad blockers?

        Oh you got me with the AirPods. I cried a river over the expensive, probably easy to lose non tethered in ear headphones that offer little to no improvements over the included ear pods.

        Again, no reason why an iPhone user would be sad.

        • NexusMan

          My point was very clear. I listed several reasons why anyone would be sad to own the latest iPhone or the iPhone 6s. I didn’t realize that by using the term “anyone,” we were just sticking to only your personal preferences.

          • Troy

            You listed reasons why you would be sad, your personal preference. If someone was willing to spend the hundreds of dollars on a phone and continue to do so year after year (or after 2 years), then it doesn’t mean that they are sad.

            Screen quality is subjective, unless we’re talking about terms of OLED.

            Your reason of bigger and heavier is purely subjective and you didn’t even list a specific device to compare with. An adult male with normal size hands has no issues with holding the iPhone 7 4.7″, the Plus size again no issues (just can’t use it one handed).

            Your argument of closed system is irrelevant to the masses. I hear this all the time from Android fan boys (I enjoy both platforms) yet when I ask them if they root their device so that they can take advantage of the “open ecosystem” they say no and usually just keep the phone very close to stock (outside of third party applications and third party keyboards).

            If the iPhone was such a sad phone to have then I highly doubt that Apple would be in the position that they are in today. Just like how having a Samsung S7 shouldn’t make someone sad, or the Pixel/XL. The only people that should be sad are those that purchased the Note 7; other than that every flagship phone is more than good enough for anyone.

            “we were just sticking to only your personal preferences.”, again, the reasons you listed were your personal reasons.

          • NexusMan

            I listed no personal preference of my own. Again…only reasons why someone…anyone could/would feel sad. Closed/open ecosystem of course is relevant to the masses and is perhaps the most ignorant statement you’ve made, as a closed ecosystem vs open ecosystem does not only pertain to whether you “root your device.” The openness of an ecosystem directly affects core functionality of a device.

          • Troy

            The reasons you listed are things that you personally believe would make someone SAD over owning an iPhone. That’s your opinion. Yes someone may dislike the idea of no headphone jack but why would it make someone sad? They knew about it and spent the money for the phone.

            There’s a big difference between dislike/con and making someone sad that they spent their money on a specific phone.

            Open/closed ecosystem is really relevant to the masses? So the majority of smartphone users know that they can download untrusted applications from the internet on an android device? And of that majority, it makes someone sad that they purchased an iPhone over an android device because they can’t (when in reality someone can easily download untrusted applications on their iPhone) do that on an iPhone ?

            I mentioned root because the majority of applications that are not allowed on the Google Play store require root access (unless you’re talking about pirated apps).

            Now if you’re talking about open ecosystem as in open source, lol.

  • akhnaten

    I am a current iPhone user and I am sad because iOS 10 is garbage and I can’t go back to 9 w/o jail breaking the phone. Couple that with the fact that new iPhones don’t have headphone jacks and my next phone will be an Android based device.

  • David Stevens

    lol I thought we were passed this “holy war.” I don’t use an iPhone because it’s a “status symbol.” These days it’s about how each device works together and fits YOUR needs best. If I have a MacBook Pro, iPad, and Apple Watch, why the heck would I “jump ship” to android, so I can be a pretentious tool and act like I’m smarter and more informed because my android phone can “do more.”?

    • NexusMan

      That’s you, and I’d say the sarcasm in this article wasn’t meant for you…but I do know a lot of iPhone users who don’t even like their phones anymore but keep buying new ones every year because all their friends have them, they see it as a status symbol, they have some old version of Android stuck in their heads that they feel is too complicated, or they think it would be too hard transferring over because “all of their stuff” is in the iOS ecosystem. So many of those people do actually exist.

  • AvalancheRyder

    I’m using an iPhone 7 and couldn’t be happier. Take away my day 1 OS updates, water resistance, encrypted messaging, superior developer support, lag-free performance, smooth web browser scrolling, app icon notification badges, and system wide backups, then add some carrier bloatware and random app incompatibility, and then I might be sad.

    I was a long time die hard android user too and the only thing I miss is the customization and tinkering. It’s almost a blessing in disguise though. Now instead of messing with my phone, I get stuff done.

    • JC

      iPhone 7+ user here, and I agree. I won’t go to the extent of saying I get stuff done now instead of messing with my phone, but I found at the end of the day tinkering with my Nexus 6 is the only thing I miss. And by tinkering I mean changing icons and homepage layouts. Whooptydoo.

    • iamcc

      I completely agree. I was a die hard Android fan until the iPhone 6 which opened the iOS door for me. I had an Android work phone and iOS personal phone until the 7 launched and now I rock a 6S for work and 7+ for personal.

      Literally the only thing I miss is “proper” Google Now support and the interactive notifications (although iOS is catching up on this).

  • capncoad

    I love Android but i’m really not that sad getting an iPhone 7 this year. The display is a bit underwhelming and no headphone jack is annoying. But outside of those areas it’s one of the most well rounded phones I’ve ever owned.

    • s0uth

      Agreed. Going from a S7 to the iPhone, the iPhone screen is a joke. Other than that, thing is a boring solid device.

  • Mordecaidrake

    I switched to the iPhone 7+ and I won’t lie I’m not sad. I like getting speedy updates and not being bogged down by carrier bloat :(.

    • Turb0wned

      Apple really knocked it out of the park with what was supposed to be a “boring” year for them.

      • Mordecaidrake

        I do have some complaints but the benefits out way them in iOS 10 imho.

        • B!

          I’m assuming one of the benefits is not spell check or a keyboard with predictive text?

          *outweigh

          • Mordecaidrake

            Has both, but I did this on my computer, so I’m extra dumb 🙂

          • B!

            I was just messing with you, but I’m not even gonna lie, when I’m on my work computer & don’t have predictive text those i before e except after c words have me all jacked up.

      • VAVAMk_2

        Not really

      • MJ

        Huh?

    • VAVAMk_2

      Nexus and Pixel *drops mic*

      • MJ

        Add the OnePlus 3/3T and the unlocked Moto Zs at least for no bloat.

    • Armorthane

      I’m switching from a 6S+ to a Pixel XL and I’m also going to be getting speedy updates and not be bogged down with carrier bloat. 🙂
      As for the price, which a lot of people complain about, I’m fine with the $25/month I’ll pay for the XL 128 GB when it comes in. (Black Friday deal)
      I had Android for 5 years prior to going back to iOS and I missed it. I went back simply to be able to Facetime my parents. My mom has Alzheimer’s and is now in a home and my dad Stage 4 Cancer. He has an iPhone and I just thought it would be EASIER on them. Well my mom can’t recognize me by sight any more and my dad can use DUO so there is no need for an iPhone anymore! And while the battery on my 6S+ is very nice, it’s not the end all, be all of batteries. I’m sure the Pixel with Quick Charge will do just fine.

        I have a iPhone 7 Plus plus Pixel and I get so many speedy updates they call me jimmyjohns at work.

      • Jimneezy

        Really sorry to hear your story, I hope you’re strong in all of this

      • Me

        Hopefully they’re doing alright. Sorry to hear.

    • James_75

      So just get a Pixel…

    • Miguel A.

      Yeah more or less the same here. I have a 7+, it’s stable, get like 4 1/2 to 5 hours of screen on time. If I’m sad about anything it’s that the new pixel looks like a Franken phone from a bunch of used HTC parts. I look forward to the day that something really great comes from Android but in the mean time, this phone is pretty awesome.

      • JRomeo

        i get 4.5 to 5hrs of screen-on time with the Pixel XL 128gb. its also stable, also the Pixel XL in silver doesn’t look like a franken phone it looks pretty nice.

      • cdm283813

        Got to agree. My Pixel has been collecting dust because I use my iPhone 7 Plus a whole lot more. But part of it is due to the larger display.

    • I bought the 7 Plus to hold me over until the Note 8 is released and I definitely agree with you on the speedy updates and lack of carrier bloat but that’s where it stops. Can’t wait to get back to Android.

    • hnic324

      I’ve switched from my second note 7 and virus plagued s7 edge to Iphone 7 plus. I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised by how well apple has gotten everything to run on their under powered platform. I don’t think I’ll permanently stick with apple because of my disdain for Itunes.

      • auspider

        Virus plagued? You’re doing it wrong…

        • hnic324

          Terraclicks advirus was the devil. I couldn’t find anyway around it. I had the s7 for 3 weeks and factory reset it about 6 times.

          • JRomeo

            this is why we should only install apps from the play store.

    • p0k3y

      Same here. Instead of spending tons of time constantly tweaking my Nexus 6P to get rid of jank and hacking, I can actually use a phone that works properly, doesn’t lag and takes great pictures every time. Who need the openness of the wild west?

      • Kevin

        I mean, I’d visit Westworld if it existed…

        • Ralph Goduco

          Black hat or white hat?

          • vOc627

            I’d say latex but can hosts give the clap?

          • Ralph Goduco

            Hahah, well they get “cleaned” right?

          • Kevin

            Both but I’d start with a black hat and progress to white

        • Kanoosh

          that worked out well for william so ya never know.

      • Armaced

        I do. If you don’t mind having somebody else’s phone, then you could do a lot worse than to have Steve Jobs phone, but I want my phone to be my phone.

    • DanG

      After owning several Android phones since the Google Nexus, I decided to give an iPhone a try. I got myself a new iPhone6 128GB. Less than 6 months later, I was back on Android. A year later, I gave another shot on iPhone. This time it was iPhone 6S Plus. Again, 6 months later, I’m back on the Android. iOS does get updated faster than Android, but it’s mostly bug fixes and to patch holes to prevent jail break. Nothing dramatic. I didn’t find anything exciting at all when the iOS was updated from iOS 9 to 10. iPhone was fun while the jail breaks were still available. iOS is a very efficient OS, but the interface and functions are not.

        which parts of the iPhone O.S. are not efficient as compared to the android O.S. ?

        • DanG

          everything

      “like getting speedy updates and not being bogged down by carrier bloat” that sounds like a pixel phone to me.

        Not on Verizon.

        • James_75

          Wrong. The updates have been on par with Google sourced phones and there’s no unremovable bloat on the ones sold through VZW.

        • JRomeo

          didn’t verizon get some updates sooner than the rest? this year on the pixel?

    Used android for long and went for ios. Not complaining. There never was a device that didn’t lag, even nexus devices.

    Went Note 7 (RIP greatest phone) – iPhone 7 Plus – Google Pixel XL – Back on the iPhone 7 Plus. The Pixel is overpriced for what it offers. Couldn’t take that terrible speaker and placement. No what’re resistance, ugly design, battery life not on par with the ip7 plus. Lens flare. iOS 10 and iMessage are excellent. You use an iPhone and everything just feels like it’s more polished. Little things like pulling down the notification screen, when it hits the bottom it bounces and you feel a light vibrate.

    I’m a fan of both systems but sorry Android fanboys, Apple hit it out the park. Only phone I wish I still had was the Note 7.

      I haven’t charged up my iPhone 7 Plus’s battery since Sunday and I’m only down to 50% power. This thing has amazing power efficiency.

        Unfortunately that’s my case as I play to much Contest of Champions, which by the way, lags on every single Android phone but smooth as silk on iOS. I know that’s not Android fault but the devs though.

        • Prototype

          Well, it’s a bit of both, really. Hardware and software differences between all the different phones out there certainly don’t always play the best with high performance gaming. Lots of RAM and processing power seems to be Android’s best answer to that so far, but maybe with some of the new tech being added and with moves to universal processing builds we’ll see that change. iOS definitely has it beaten for now.

        how do you feel about the 7plus compared to the 6s plus? worth the upgrade? I have an apple care replacement coming in and im thinking about selling it for the 7 plus…

        • The Doctor

          Oh god yes. I had the 6S Plus and the dual cameras on the 7 Plus, plus the IP67 rating, brighter screen and color accuracy, and much faster processor are definitely worth the upgrades.

      What’re resistance? Are you typing on the iPhone? I can tell which of my friends have iPhones from all the stupid autocorrect mistakes. =)

    I’m using an iPhone 7 Plus and I’m far from being sad using it. It’s better than every Android phone currently on the market. The only phone that could’ve beaten it was the Note 7 if it didn’t have its battery problems.

    • JRUIV

      feel better?

      • patt

        No

        About what?

  • trixnkix637

    Had a Pixel XL, it got stolen :(.

    Been using an iPhone 5S until VZW gets their shipment (1/11/17). Let me say, iOS is impressive. But also convoluted, complicated, and downright messy at times. I don’t have a Mac computer so iMessage means nothing, I use Google Music primarily for my tunes, and everything else about the software is an uninspiring eh.

    That being said, I’m not a Google fanboy. Just very invested in their ecosystem. Trying to use some of the apps on Apple’s platform just doesn’t provide the same experience.

  • LaFave07

    I’m not a fanboy of either Android or iOS. I have an iPhone 7 and a SHIELD TV. But’s getting harder and harder to switch sides as time goes on.

    Chances are you have a ton of apps that you paid for or have bought music, movies or TV shows. iMessage would be pretty hard to give up. Being able to send high res photos, videos, and audio is great.

    Most Google apps are on iOS.

    Killing iMessage is the major key here. Had some friends that had a really frustrating time with iMessage hijacking all their SMS.
