Does it matter if most of your family members have iPhones? In other words are there any issues communicating between Androids and iPhones?  Especially texting...which is the main reason why we need to change.

I'm not trying to argue for iphone but there is a thing called iMessage which doesn't work well on non-apple phones.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMessage  Probably not a game changer.  But you asked...

Is this separate from regular texting (where there is no inter-system communication problems)?

Yeah, with imessage you can have a group conversation, but if one person has an android it messes with the conversation and how messages are received. Also, imessage works over wi-fi so you can still message in areas where cell service is spotty as long as you're messaging another iphone.

I seem to be in the minority here, but I love the apple products. They're intuitive and just work well. The lack of customization doesn't bother me at all. I have the 5s that is basically at the end of its useful life. I think I'll get the SE next. Cheaper than the latest models and I prefer the smaller size.

What decision did you make, 2Vermont?

Archer,

We haven't made a decision yet.  We were waiting until the new year to research, check out phones, etc but January is turning out to be too busy for us to actually make a point of doing it.  I doubt we'll make a purchase until at least Feb.
