They say the best Windows 10 computer is a Mac. I’d add, the best Android phone (IMHO) is an iPhone.
I’m iPhone user, as several of my professional apps aren’t on Android, but my main, daily apps are Google. Google Drive, Maps, Voice, Photos, Play Music, YouTube, Calendar, Keep, Inbox, Authenticator, Keyboard, etc are invaluable and used daily. If I could, I’d set them as my default apps. That’s not going to happen, but I’d lose peace of mind if I switched to Android.
I like knowing exactly when my next iOS upgrade is available. I like knowing that if a app is being released, it’s almost guaranteed to be on iOS in a timely manner. I like that I have physical stores I can go to for issues, in almost every country I’ll travel.
At this point in my life and career, it’s not about innovation, it’s about dependability and access to resources. And that means an iPhone for me.
