2. You do not need exclusive iOS applications
App Store is the best mobile application store. Developers have created many exclusive programs and games for mobile "apple" platform. But whether they need you?
Most users need approximately the same set of programs: a good browser, email client, messengers, social network customers, navigation, lists of cases, photo edits. The overwhelming part of such iOS applications has its own versions for Android and Windows Phone. So why buy iPhone if you can solve your everyday tasks and on smartphones easier?

iPhone has long ceased to be an element of style and individuality. Seriously, when you go in public transport, the iPhone in your hands is already every second passenger. Yes, you can buy a case, make engraving or even order a wooden bumper, but why, if you can do with any other phone?
Now that people see that you have an iPhone, they say not "Wow, what cool", and "Oh, our man". "Apple" smartphone has long been a massive phenomenon, so if you want to stand out from the crowd, there are many ways to do this without resorting to buying a phone with an apple on the back panel.
4. You do not have a Mac computer and other "apple" devices
Apple ecosystem itself is a good thing. Devices interact, allow you to work with one and the same files on the fly, respond to calls and SMS from a computer. However, before you buy the iPhone, think if you want to become a full-fledged member of the "apple" ecosystem?
Many chips such as iCloud, Safari bookmarks, cloud storage of ICloud Drive, Handoff, Continuity are based primarily on IOS and OS X. If you do not have other Apple devices, then you will not pay most of the user experience on the iPhone. Why do you need?

No jailbreak tweaks will be equal to the possibilities of Customization Android. Another point – you actively use Google services. Here the choice of mobile OS is also obvious.
In addition, not everyone likes the design and IOS interface. Many are delighted with Material Design on Android or Tiles in Metro on Windows Phone. Third generally do not exchange your BlackBerry with a QWERTY-keyboard. You can have your reasons for not to love iOS, and they all can be a good reason in order to abandon the purchase of the iPhone.
