I run owncloud for quite some time. I am about to switch to nextcloud, decision was made some time ago, this is just lower priority. In addition to what other people mentioned, nextcloud had latest free client applications for mobile devices. Owncloud was $0.99 for each mobile device. You can find really old version free for android. Not that the cost stops me: I was really happy to pay when I started using owncloud, so grateful to them I was for their existence. However, I run my android de-googled, so applications come not from the google app store. Hence, it will be hassle with paid applications.
