Becuase if you do, then you may know that the latest iOS release is with full of bugs pkus battery drain issues. Your mere logical state regarding the Samsung may true if this was 2012 but now it's one of the tech innovative company with regular updates mechanism plus less bugs..
P.s. : don't hate because you are not able to buy something or something is way out of your league. Just learn to admire the beauty. I use an iPhone yet I'm not blind.

So, stop being a total ish*ep dear, cos the last time I checked on internet, it is the notorious iOS 11 to bring you lags and drains your small and crappy battery as hell! (till now you are infected with software bugs)
Anyway, you still can worship all you want by anymeans though, cos it is totally upto you!
why samsung have R&D division ? they should have devisions like -
1) lag division - add lag to android
2) copy division - copy other apps - make it white like ios.
3)name division - what will be next week's phone name.

Have you heard the term called "security update". Samsung's flagship is always behind 3/4 months. Don't just make cooment apple's update makes iphone slower or throttle the battery life.
You use samsung - and you are used to the lags - so don't compare like fool

As daily drivers I use Samsung S7 for 2years and 8 days and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pro for couple month (now for year ZUK Z2).
Company where I work security departament banned me to use redmi note 3 pro, because it send data to China, I dont want have sex with firmware changing and switch to Zuk Z2.
For calls, email, messaging and waze Zuk Z2 good daily driver, but it still huge difference between ZUK and Samsung, and S7 worth all 744 eur I pay for it on release date.
Samsung display, premium materials, excellent camera and support worth it.
I have two warranty situations: first was front panel change (propably I damaged oleophobic coating by my self), second time they change battery (hard daily use causes big battery wear and it starting to shut down in cold weather), they change it for free in 2-3 hours both time and second time I got cosmetic wear from dropped phone and they still change battery.
Samsung S7 never restarting, but ZUK Z2 1x in month restarting by itself.
One bih plus to ZUK, its battery saving management. ZUK keeps games in background working and battery life is longer, but maybe it is SD820 vs Exynos not ZUK firmware win.
So this is my 5 cents. I will never use chinese copy cats as primary phone only top brands like Samsung, LG, Huawei, Sony , maybe OnePlus (I am android user), but now its price on start is close to AAA brands.
Now I am waiting new phone from LG (I used LG G2 for a long time and it was great phone) and if it make G7 with notch I will buy Huawei (something without notch) or S9.
Couple years ago all complaining about Apple prices, was the same "too expensive, it dont worth it blablabla" now when android top brands have similar prices with Apple, whiners started it with android top brands. Both times they cant afford this phones and thats why complaining about prices.

You get what you paid for, as simple as that. I might agreed with you to some extent if you meant by Apple! but for Samsung nah! they still charge you lesser than Apple plus they do not release updates to force you to buy a new model or a battery to the least! hope you know what I meant!
Shootergod, 19 Mar 2018For the things and effort they have put it in that phone, I think it worths way more than $700... moreNo. They charge a big premium for the sake of brand name. Smaller companies can offer the same thing in almost half the price cause that's how much it costs.
samsung phone -- pass - all duplicate apps (and apps by samsung is inferior) - no proper security update , forget OS upgrade.
No surprises here. Note 8 64gb is already available at 710$ in my country, that too at all 5 colors.
Note7 owner, 19 Mar 2018Should have been priced at $700 from release. For the things and effort they have put it in that phone, I think it worths way more than $700 when it was first released dear!
