Google boss writes guide on how to ditch Apple in favour of Android

25 November 2013

apple v google In a move that won't be completely biased at all, Google's big cheese, Eric Schmidt, has decided to write a guide teaching iPhone users how to convert to Android.

Schmidt says that an Android phone will make a lovely Christmas present for someone with an Apple device and they'll need tips on how to use Google's OS and how to transfer contacts and the like.

Schmidt says, on his G+ account (which is why no-one has seen it), that loads of his "iPhone friends are converting to Android. The latest high-end phones from Samsung (Galaxy S4), Motorola (Verizon Droid Ultra) and the Nexus 5 (for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) have better screens, are faster, and have a much more intuitive interface."

'Eric’s Guide: Converting to Android from iPhone' continues: "Some general advice - Be sure to use Chrome, not Safari; its safer and better in so many ways. And it’s free."

The last time Schmidt said Google was more secure than Apple, he drew hoots of derision, but he's sticking to his guns, regardless of the fact that everyone's been told not to expect any privacy with Gmail.

Are you going to be trying to persuade an iPhone user to switch to Android this Christmas?

    Siriusly (HAHAHA) - this needs to F&ck off and go away. Apple could release bags of sand and people would flock in their millions to buy it. They have an unfaltering fan base that specs/price/value are not going to shift. So buy what you want, use what you want and get on with your life.

    Whilst Apple nerds are probably the most insufferable nerds out there, most of my friends who are iPhone owners are so because someone else showed them the phone in use and thought 'I'll get me one of them'. Now that Android has slowly caught up with Apple and even surpassed, a lot of iPhone users that are looking to change are having to consider loosing all that money they spent on music and apps, along with the hassle of loosing all that data in the iCloud. Personally, I would look forward to uninstalling that virus/software iTunes off my computer the most.
