Guys I need help. I am choosing between iPhone 7 32GB and Galaxy S8 64GB. Both are at an almost same price in India for $660. I know iPhone 7 will get around 3-4 years of OS updates and S8 might get 1-2 max. Performance and Camera are more or less equal on both the devices. Display definitely S8 wins hands down. Battery life might be same as well buy S8 has fast charging.
If OS is not a constraint and OS updates also do not matter and everything else being equal, what phone should I choose that would last me 4-5 years as I cannot spend so much on phones every few years?
Also, should I opt for any other phone in this price range or even cheaper which would have same performance and camera quality which is my priority and should last me few years.

IOS 11.3 released a few days ago, but I still haven't update it. So I have a question for those who did it :
1) How is battery life ?
2) Is performance slowed down?
3) Any bug reports?
Thanks in advance....

Also the iPhone is better know than the Pixel series and the resale value is quite high.

im now using iphone 6. but i saw a great deal, $470 for a 32gb model (not refurbish). is it worth it? not having a 3,5mm jack still bothers me. but my iphone 6 is slow af already.
At this time the iPhone 7 and the Google pixel are almost at the same price for the base models which is better?
I am from Iran. This mobile and the Plus version of this mobile was sold in Iran, but the Samsung Galaxy S8 seems to be better than this.

1: If 5.5 screen size is available, why the hell you making 4.7 inches
2: We old n permanent iPhone users need compact size like iPhone 5s
3: iPhone SE doesnÂ’t have diamond cut edge looking Too bad😡
4: charging slots n earphones jack should be separated
5: iPhone X hasnÂ’t home button n not compact 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Now Apple is not as good as sometimes ago
vinoth, 15 Mar 2018My Frnd got a new iPhone 7.should I upgrade to latest OS version? Is that good for iPhone 7 ?... moreiOS 11 is on its way to become as good as iOS 10. iOS 12 will only improve on that, so if you think that iOS 10 is boring, you can upgrade to iOS 11.

Is that good for iPhone 7 ?... moreI don't recommend to update to latest OS until he is interested in new features. It slows down your phone for about 2%-5% but does not effect the performance that much as compared to iphone 8. Let him keep the phone still on iOS 10.3.3 so that it does not get slowed down after certain time of usage.
