Apple To Android


Recommended Posts

Get a OnePlus or an Oppo. Both great phones, and cheap for the specs you get. They also have models with dual sim I think. As for data transfer, it should be largely the same for any Android phone.

If you want to spend more cash for a flagship phone, the Google Pixel range is always excellent. Everyone loves Samsung, but I really dislike them due to them being stupid expensive compared to the competition.

I have been looking at the Oppo Reno8. No extra memory slot though.

Data transfer is pretty easy when going to Android. You can either plug your iPhone and Android phone into each other via USB and transfer data directly, or do it via Google drive. 

For text messages, I used an app called iSMS2droid. It transferred all of my texts without issue. 

Regarding dual SIM, make sure the option is enabled by your carrier. Mine won't let me use a second SIM even though the phone supports it.

I can recommend the xiaomi phones. Had a bunch of them. Currently running the Mi11i. "Most" Xiaomi's have dual sim and expandable memory (you cant use 2 sims and mem card at the same time. )  I cant stand there OS MIUI - but I think coming from apple you'll like it. Admittedly I run the phones on Pixel OS (so its like a Google Pixel)

There naming conventions and model numbers are a bloody pain to work out ie Redmi, Redmi Note, Mi, Poco, K series, 12 series. Within each series you can have multiple models ie Mi 11, Mi11 Ultra , Mi11 light, Mi11 Pro and then some of these are 4G or 5G

Oppos in general I don't like due to their ColorOS - very restricted if you want to do some changes - it's been a couple of years since I tested one but I cant remember the exact problem but it was  a simple home scrreen change and I couldnt even change the launcher (allows your phone to adjust the way you want it to look). This may have changed.  The other issue is it contains a ton of bloatware. Xiaomi does to but at least youre able to remove it.

What ever phone you get you should look at 4gigROM - 6gig recommended for 2nd tier phones - the more apps you install and have running the slower it is.

Poco 4 is great for games whereas Mi series has a better camera. 

Most 2nd tier phones unfortunately have no local support and typicallly buy from Bangood, Aliexpress . 

I would stretch your dollar further if purchasing in Oz and get the OnePlus
