    I've had the 6 Plus, 6s, and 7 Plus and I agree with you.

    Stop it. It now has a dual camera and it comes in black. That's innovation.

    If your soley just want to use iOS, I'd say wait for i8. Im sure that will be much alike the s8. If your open to other platforms like myself, I'd say go for it. Many people here thought I only used iOS. I have used android since back on the HTC Inspire and Motorola Atrix. I've owed many over the years.

    Not really tied to iOS, yes I convinced my wife to get an iPhone but as a fan of tech I'm always open to other platforms; granted my last spin in the android world was with the google Nexus one, the S8 and the OnePlus has struck my curiosity

    I had the s7 edge. I liked it. But it never came my primary phone. I sold that once I got the s8. But now that I have the s8, it's the only phone I use.

    The S8 sounds incredible especially if your iPhone feels slow and dated, interesting input.
    I can assure you that the iPhone is not slow After using a S8+ for three weeks most thing still gets done faster on the iPhone 7+ Yes the hardware looks dated with all the bezels but the iPhone 7 screen still has quality if you ignore the bezels

    I thought as much as with everyone on the iPhone forums drooling over the S8 and what seems to be majority agreeing I was starting to doubt myself a little. I did get to use the S8 for a bit but maybe real world use introduced or showed me things I didn't notice.

    Will make a mention that it's a hard one to install.. I'm really good at installing screen protectors but I had my coworker do it because she's really good! Plus I tend to flub mine at least once.. everyone else's protectors I get right the first try lol go figure. And seeing as I had to order it and I can't just yank another off the shelf so I didn't take chances.
    Yes, the Sapphire Defense has been much improved over the iPhone 7 version. The first one I tried on the S8+ I had on a little high and over to the right. The one side would not lay down and I had a couple bubbles at the top. If you don't get the SD on perfect the first time there will be problems. ZAGG sent me a replacement and I have yet to install it. Right now I'm using the Bodyguardz Pure Arc tempered glass and it's been perfect. If the Bodyguardz gives me problems then I'll try round two with the Sapphire Defense.

    Brooke, any experience with the Bodyguardz Pure Arc ?

    I got the sapphire defense and LOVE it! It looked like it wasn't going to settle at first but it has now and there's no issues with the touch screen. It's Perfect! Highly recommended!
    Can you post a couple pictures showing the Sapphire Defense installed on your phone? Thanks.

    Curious question for those who own multiple phones.

    Do you swap them out daily? Do you collect phones or sell them off to help pay for newer ones?

    I get the appreciation for both platforms as each has pros/cons, but i could never intentionally own more than one phone for personal use (i have two phones but one is a personal, the other work gave me...both iPhones).
    iPhone 7 Plus is my personal device.
    Galaxy S8 is my work device.

    This is probably what won me over so much with this S8. I went full on iPhone when the 6 released. Didn't even look over the fence. I kind of had my head in the sand. Then I picked up the S8 and I was like "whoa...I've been missing out!" Lol. Quite a few great features that the iPhone should have had a few devices ago, honestly. I understand the "Apple waits to add features until they're ready"...but they are working wonderfully on the S8. I really hope the next release of iPhones and iOS 11 catches up.

    Agreed 100% . This is how I felt as well. I had a galaxy s5 that I hated so I was pretty anti android for a bit lol but I just love this one!

    I've had the 6 Plus, 6s, and 7 Plus and I agree with you.
    We all should know how Apple works by now. They keep things pretty similar for a couple of years, maybe a little more, and then come out with a big boom. Most people with iPhones user it for functionality, not hardware. I've been into hardware since I started using smartphones and I've finally convinced myself that functionality over physicality is more important at this time in my life. Androids are fun phones to use no doubt....They have gorgeous displays and top notch hardware. For me, iMessage, FaceTime, and app functionality are more important to me now. Plus I think it's harsh to say that it's slow...Dated yes but slow definitely not. I know you didn't say that just referencing another post and couldn't figure out how to quote more than one post!

    No, I don't think the iPhone 7 Plus (or 7 or 6S/6S plus) are slow phones but I really hate how slow the animations are, one thing though, you CAN'T say that the S8/S8 + are slow either or the usual claims that because it's a Samsung or Android it will get slow later. I'm still waiting for one of mine to get that way, I used the S7 edge for over a year and it was working as the first day, obviously the battery, as in any other phone wasn't holding its charge like when it was brand new. The same happened with the Note 5 that was used for about 14 months, first by me and then by my daughter. One thing I always do, even with the Iphones is a weekly reboot, that's it.

    This is what I meant by slow. The animations are and texting on the s8+ versus the iPhone 7 plus is world's different. It's way faster on my android.

    I definitely do love iOS and kept the other personal line eligible for upgrade when the new one comes out but if it's just another s version update I may hold off. Just for the time being.

    Thanks, I believe the Sapphire Defense is the best screen protector available for the S8/S8+.

    I just think it would take me 2-4 tries to get one on perfect and I've done a million screen protectors in my life.

    Ok there was a misunderstanding because I thought you were implying iPhones are slow at performing. It's easy on android to turn on developer mode and reduce animations, but I guess you're referring to default Samsung oem launcher. I can agree the S8 transitions are less than that of iOS, I'm personally a fan of the transitions but see what you mean.

    The HTC Inspire and Motorola Atrix take it back many years!
