From queuing at midnight openings to living life on iMessage, Apple iPhone users can be a proud bunch. But not everyone can afford to upgrade to the latest iPhone every year. For those of you who are considering your options, there are worse places to turn than the world's most popular smartphone brand: Samsung.
At least, that's what Samsung is hoping with a new app that lets you temporarily turn any iPhone into a Samsung to test out whether or not you like it.
The online app, iTest, is based in New Zealand but available to all iPhone users worldwide.
It lets you 'test drive' Samsung by letting you play around with its unique Android interface all via your mobile browser.
A spokesperson from Samsung said: "We know that the idea of switching to a new operating system can be daunting for many mobile users. iTest was designed to give consumers a taste of Samsung, without ever changing phones."
“While we can’t replicate every function and feature, the experience enables users to explore a range of apps and settings from phone and messaging apps to the Galaxy Store.”

How to test drive Samsung Android using your iPhone
Samsung's 'iTest' guides you through how a Samsung phone works, including themes, camera tutorials, and other tips and tricks.
To try it out, follow these steps:
- On your iPhone, open Safari or your web browser of choice
- Head to itest.nz
- Click the link or scan the QR code
- It should open a full-screen Android emulator
Android is the iPhone's biggest competitor. Created by Alphabet, Google's parent company, Android can be modified more easily than Apple's iOS, meaning a greater variety of features and functions across phone models.
So, load up iTest and check out how different they really are.
