My AirPods and Apple Watch
AirPods work with Android devices, but of course not as well. They’re not designed for Androids, and that’s apparent. You’ll lose Spatial Audio, seamless pairing, among other features. Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode still work; however.
There has been one larger issue using AirPods Pro with my Z Flip, though. Even on full-blast, music is barely loud enough. Interestingly, regular AirPods work just fine.
On another note, the Apple Watch is the best smartwatch available, period. Apple Watches are fast, painless and accurate at measuring a huge variety of workouts. I’ve been using the Samsung Fit2, which is a fitness tracker that gets the job done at an incredible price of only $59 and sometimes less. No, the Fit2 is not a direct-competitor to the Apple Watch, but is very good for what it is. Samsung makes great watches, however the company’s top-of-the-line watches just still aren’t as good as Apple’s.
I don’t plan to switch back to my iPhone anytime soon, as I’m really enjoying the quirky and revolutionary foldable design of the Z Flip 5G and all of the cool things that Android has to offer.
This phone really takes me back to the days where flip-phones were king (and phones were fun).
However, Android devices are not perfect. If you’re an iPhone user interested in foldable phones, and have some patience, just wait for Apple’s foldable iPhone, which we may see next year.
