So I’m official a victim of Apples grand scheme.

I don’t care how pretty the Note is: I’ve dealt with Samsung before, never again. Yes I know, the Note looks this and that and promises to fix all the wrongs in life as well as steam your pants, prevent aging and put Viagra to shame but Samsung makes pretty shiny things that cost as much as Apple and only work long enough for you to exit the store.
I’m not exactly stoked with Apple, either, so right now I’m just hoping my devices will last so I don’t have to deal with the morass anytime soon ????????????*♀️

Both iPhones and Samsungs work very well in my opinion...I’ve used devices from both companies and they have lasted me for years (I still use some of them).

Phones Samsung makes to rival Apple are usually slightly cheaper (e.g S10 vs iPhone XS) and have more features, but that’s a different topic.

My main point is that I’ve always experienced good quality from Apple and Samsung.

Then enjoy your Samsung, by all means. I won’t go near a Samsung device under any circumstances, at this point. Different strokes.

I’ve been hearing the iPhone is Boring Mantra a lot lately but it’s really more like it’s becoming so refined to the point of a communication appliance.

Reliable and issue free that we don’t feel the anxiety that use to be associated with the Tech of the past.

So I’ll take Boring all day long

I don’t understand the iPhone being boring claim. I honestly have no idea what that means. Because of widgets? What exactly makes android more exciting than iPhones. Anyway, I always say get what works for you.

It’s hardly as serious as my title suggests but still...

Here I was playing with the Note 10, which is a gorgeous device and I’m on the verge of switching when it hits me...

If I switch, I lost the functionality I get with my AirPods, Apple Watch and the way all my devices talk together. My iPhone really is the glue and unless I want to lose out on all of that...with the iPhone I remain.

But man...that Note is so pretty.

Looking forward to the iPhone 11 announcement. Hopefully I’m impressed.
I sacrificed everything and ended up with a note 10+ but it is absolutely gorgeous and it's been 24 hours without my watch so far...its been a strange journey so far..

I've done all I can to avoid being trapped in an ecosystem. I do not want to be trapped in anybody's ecosystem. I switched from iPhone X to the Note 10+. It's been a little harder than I thought it would be. But I'm doing it. It is boring for me to be trapped in any one ecosystem, whether it's Apple's or Google's or Samsung. I think it's boring to have an iPhone, get a new phone, and hey...it's an iPhone. Or Samsung or Google. Having said all this, I currently have 5 Apple devices :) Getting rid of the iPhone and watch soon though.

Not here to diss anybody's choice of mobile tech. Do you. Just stating my point of view.

I think being flexible is important if you want true freedom of choice. However, if you’re happy with your company and trust it to make good products and make the right decisions, then embracing their multiple products and services can be beneficial as they work well with each other (e.g Apple with the iPhone, Apple Music/Watch etc)

With Samsung, you’re lucky.

I’ve owned 4. 3 had hardware failure requiring Samsung repair. Only brand of phone I ever had that happen with. And they were all flagship, not one of their myriad cheap models.

I wouldn’t say I’m ‘lucky’...though I’m sorry to hear you had bad luck with Samsung devices. They work well for most people.

For about a year, and then they start lagging and glitching.

Used to manage a cell store - by far the most complaints I got from people were in regards to Samsung phones - followed closely by LG and then Sony.

I realize that it’s anecdotal, but years of front lines support on phones, and you see patterns. It’s also why I have had so many phones myself - I felt that in order to support customers, the best thing is to own the phones and experience it yourself. But I always went back to iPhone. Always.
