An iPhone User Switches to Android: Day One Troubles

FleshEatingZipper says: "Since 2008, I’ve been using an iPhone and have always liked it. After the iPhone 5 released I said I would be leaving the iPhone. Why? Because I want a bigger screen. I know this may be whiny, but don’t tell me a 4″ screen is perfect for me. Android had been averaging 4.5″ a greater and I wanted that. So I left AT&T and got the new HTC Droid DNA on Verizon." (Android, iPhone, Phones)

Putting aside the LTE comments, sounds really fanboyish. Switching from one system to the other will always have its teething problems, i.e. have to re-learn a system from scratch. It would be pointless if all the systems worked in the same way because then there would be no differentiation between the two operating systems. Didn't realize this whole rant was mostly about email issues though. I can't speak for HTC customers, but on vanilla installs of Android, there is a default mail app which handles everything, even though Google still pushes their Gmail app. Nonetheless, you can use Gmail via the default mail app.

Yes, my biggest issue for the first day was email. My email on my is my lifeline and they fact that it wasn't a straight forward process really bothered me.

I'm not trying to be a fanboy. I have no loyalty to my iPhone and I don't miss it at all.

I'm surprised the regular email app didn't cover your needs like it should. I used to use it when I had a Hotmail account as well, but only migrated to the Gmail app since my personal and business email are both backed by Gmail Business Apps. Sadly there are shortcomings both ways. I think most people once they get comfortable with Android, they end up rooting the thing and installing a custom ROM, to solve some problems such as your inability to remove default apps.

I have an Xperia, the first time I turned it on it asked me to enter my email addresses, so I did. That was all the setup it required to receive emails. When I get new mail it appears on a drag down bar on the top of the screen, click and read.
