I promised myself that I would stop bouncing back and forth between android and iOS. The Note phones have always pulled me in, but then I come back to the iPhone. After switching from the Note 7 and being very happy with my 7 Plus, I said that would be it. No reason to switch again only to come back.
Now I see the S8 & S8+....they look and feel a lot like the Note 7 that I loved. The screen is beautiful, it feels really good in the hand and everything seems to run so smooth. All of those things sound and are appealing, but something is different this time. This time I stop and remember how I always come back to the iPhone. How I miss iMessage and FaceTime with my family and friends. How I miss immediate updates, the Apple Store, the best customer service, the integration with AirPods, Apple Watch, iPad and MacBook, the best apps with the best features and more accessories than I could ever use. I actually stop and think about all of that this time and I have no interest in leaving again. I don't know what Apple will do in the fall and if I will buy the iPhone 8 or Edition or whatever, but I won't be buying the Galaxy S8. I am very happy with my 7 Plus and if I have to stick with it for another year or so, that is fine too.
