If I take into consideration about security and OS updates than I know that the only phone I can buy for 4-5 years use is an iPhone as not even Pixel give updates probably beyond 3 years or so. And Pixels have very bad resale value and cost more than iPhone.

I guess I will go for iPhone 32GB as you said most of my media is via streaming so space should not be an issue. For Google Pixels, yes they are quite expensive here in India with not that great customer support and Apple stores are present every few miles. We dont have much of accessories available either for Pixels and Apple accessories are like in abundance with great choices. Only Samsungs and Apple have good resale value here.
Yeah so mostly it is iPhone 7 32gigs..

I recommend to get the iPhone 7 but the 128GB version... the 32GB storage will be full pretty quickly unless you depend more on streaming. Also you can get the Pixel 2 64GB, but i think it's more expensive than the iphone 7 or the S8. A cheaper option is the first Pixel 128GB, but i would be careful since i got one with a microphone problem.
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.
