I never owned an Android phone so take this as a question rather than a criticism. I had an iphone 3g then an iPhone 4 and finally an iPhone 5... This means on average I change a phone once every 4 years (my iPhone 5 is approaching 5 years!). Sometimes I consider switching to Android because (for me) mainly iTunes sucks and I don't wanna pay the 7-8 hundred Apple asks... But when I start looking for a phone I get dizzy and bored from the user comments... one phone heats up/ another is slow/ the other crashes/ some times they even blow up... (price to pay for one size fits all OS). I am not interested in a top notch phone... I am interested in one that is durable and its going to serve me and the 5 -10 apps I consistently use for the next 4 years. Being a programmer I really do not care about "the freedom of Android" I want something to work out of the box without crashing... I dont like big and bulky phones (in fact an iphone 5/se without the edges would be ideal for me) but I want a slightly bigger screen than the 5 mainly due to reading emails and sometimes documents... what do you think about the 8 and its price? (1.2k for the X is obviously ridiculous... )
Xathura, 17 Sep 2017If you're so happy with your Sammy, what are you doing in iPhone page then?You should look at your friend saying first, Samsung is hanging or freezing or whatever is it.
I still have 5S, which is now 4 yeas old, and it still works like a charm. Maybe you should try it, instead of judging it by some biased X-brand opinion.

I still like how they evolve and improve a working product, but the upgrade is just too small to justify the high(er) price.
Hey Buddy, 17 Sep 2017My S8 Plus with 6GB RAM and never lags or freezes. It has 384 GB's of memory, a wonderful Sony... moreJust wait 2 years: your phone will lag as hell, the camera will show problems, the storage will be slow as heck, the back panel and front panel will be cracked because of this fragile edge, the phone will only last 2 hours because of touchwiz problems and the update cycle will end so you won't enjoy the fancy new features of android Q. At that time, I will be here sitting with my mint condition iPhone 7 128GB and enjoy the latest iOS with faster speed than new android phones and look forward to what the rest of the 5 years of update support will bring.

georgelucian, 17 Sep 2017Still small battery,1821mah is not enough.don't worry its running on iOS with the best processor on the market right now
so battery optimization is not a problem
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017I disagree. People need other people's opinions. One should always consider what makes sense. ... moreI agree. Let, the choose what they want. One thing which makes apple different from Samsung is the reliability. The phone will literally last forever, doesn't hang and is damn secure.Security is the reason why there is an apple ecosystem. I have an iPhone 6 and it still doesn't hang and works like a charm. Samsung starts hanging after 6months of use and softwareupdates makes it even worse.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017I disagree. People need other people's opinions. One should always consider what makes sense. ... moreListen to other people? Lol. No thanks. You must buy the phone you want and don't look at other people. In my country many people buy Samsung and iPhone. But I've bought Sony and never regret. But if you want to buy iPhone or Samsung just buy iPhone.
obosen, 16 Sep 2017lol! why so much hate, mate? if iPhone sucks then why is it still hot in the market? you're so... moreI disagree. People need other people's opinions. One should always consider what makes sense. Apple has isheep. That is those that just buy up anything apple puts out there just because it's apple. I've been buying iPhones and Samsung as they hit the market cos I like using 2 phones. I usually end up giving away my iphone at the 4th month. Samsung does everything it does and better. I think I will wait for the upgrade of the IPhone x next year.
Animoji, iPhone X's biggest innovation for their newest offering. I'm curious how many 15 year olds will be shelling out $1,149.00 for a new phone.
Rj, 13 Sep 2017Dear Samsung fans, You are all free to buy that hanging and freezing crap. So leave the ipho... moreMy S8 Plus with 6GB RAM and never lags or freezes. It has 384 GB's of memory, a wonderful Sony camera which doesn't protrude from the back of it's case, dual SIM's, a larger display, a more powerful battery, device connectivity which is universal (except for iPhone accessories), iris recognition as well as facial (an iPhone X fail) and fingerprint. Not to mention it's display isn't scarred by a ridiculous cutout. If that's your real concern go ahead and buy the iPhone X. You may have to wait awhile since Apple has serious vendor and supply issues and by the time you buy the wireless charger, lighting stand, case and insurance you'll have spent around $1,650.00 USD. Apple is counting on people like you since there devices continue to lose marketshare to less expensive and better equipped Android Smartphone Devices.
looks like the the main difference between the iPhone 7's and these 8's is the move to glass backs to allow wireless charging.
