My thoughts on the Apple walled garden after spending a couple of years in the iOS ecosystem.


@kev, I agree. The wall garden exists only for iMessage.
We can always use 3rd party apps for everything else and those often work better than their counterparts on Android.

If anything, Android pushes us much further to keep in the Google garden.
Samsung won’t even let me uninstall the Facebook app in their flagship device, the S9.

@arghyadeep yeah, that was the final straw for me on my last device (Huawei something) where I couldn't uninstall Facebook or Dropbox - neither of which I use.
