    If you currently have an iPhone and you're not unhappy with the ecosystem, get another iPhone. If you switch to Android now, you'll lose access to all the apps you've bought.

    My vote is for the Oneplus 6 - I bought mine on launch day and am very impressed with it. I made the move from iOS to Android a few years ago and losing the apps I'd bought was a bit of a pain but the financial saving of going with Android more than made up for having to rebuy some apps - sim free the OnePlus 6 is over £200 cheaper than the iPhone 8 Plus (closer to £300) - so unless you've got an inordinate amount of apps to re-buy you're better off with Android in the long run (in my opinion anyway).

    iPhone X is worth a look, its a slick piece of kit and I love mine. And you can just backup your existing phone to iCloud and pull it down to the new shiny so easily!

    <get the phone I've got, I like it and it's nice>

    But seriously, to echo Gareth, don't underestimate the aggro of switching ecosystems. Unless you're particularly upset with iOS or Apple, stick with another iPhone.

    The only aggro I had with switching ecosystems was moving my Whatsapp messages from IOS to Android. Huawei has a phone clone app though I didn't use that. I used Dr.Fone. I paid 30€ for it which is quite a bit, but I felt the memories were important. It's stupid on IOS you can only backup Whatsapp to iCloud and on Android you can only backup to Google Drive.

    Good choice, fella. I have to agree with the above and echo what Gareth said, even if I was a little late.

    I switched from Android back to iOS with my X and I love it. It’s so much faster than my old phone, it’s ridiculous.

    Switched from an iPhone 5 to a P20 Pro (there's a price check for one) and am as happy as @TheMadDutchDude with his iPhone X. Honestly, get the best phone you can afford.
