Thanks for all the responses so far.
Since my primary purpose is as a GPS the PP that said google maps is better than apple maps has given me more reason to look at android. And of course there is the benefit that my Miss13 will be able to show me how to use it.
Her complaints against iphones are:
*1* They are brittle. So many people seem to pull an iphone out of their pocket and it has a broken screen.
*2* You have to buy apps for everything and they are not transferable.
Does anyone have any comments on the one I am looking at?
