Just before the Chinese New Year week, my iPhone 4S was stolen a day after I attended the Singapore launch of the LG Optimus G. I have been thinking of switching to an Android phone, seeing that it had surpassed iOS in global marketshare as the mobile platform of choice.
It must be a sign.
After my iPhone 4S was stolen, I have been using my wife’s old iPhone 4 in the interim. A week ago, I finally got my hands on a new set of the LG Optimus G:
I am a Mac user most of my life – I currently have an iPad, two iPod Mini, an iPod, two Macbook Pro and two iPhone 4 in my home.
Nonetheless, I am determined to attempt the switch to LG Optimus G because Apple seems to be getting too cocky and arrogant these years – think the blunder with the deletion of Google map app in iOS 6 , the stupid patents they keep filing to retard the development of mobile innovation and their multiple lawsuits against competitors.
In the next few weeks, I will be documenting my transition from an Apple iOS user on iPhone 4/4S to a LG Optimus G Android user.
The immediate challenge for me was to get my Optimus G to sync on my Macbook Pro. I will also need to import all my contacts and data stored in iCloud and iTunes to the new phone.
The steps are easier than I thought. I will share more in my next “It’s Time to Change for Good” blog series. Stay tuned.
