    I really want to get the S8+, but I'm a Note guy, and I will hold on to this S7 Edge until the Note 8 comes out, unless Samsung lets me trade in this S7 for the S8, then I will do it, lol.

    I switched from the S7 Edge to a Google Pixel... Now I kind of want to switch from the Pixel to the S8!

    I'm on the fence about this one. Never been a huge fan of Samsung bloat, but like the idea of the Focus app and love the hardware.

    Whenever you need to upgrade, you cannot go wrong with the S8

    I like my S7, mostly. If I could select what options I want from the samsung software, and what I want from sprint I would like it more. I've wanted to go unlocked for a long time and I may finally make the switch which means switching carriers and that will not break my heart at all. Mostly have stuck with sprint because of cost and while some things have gotten better, some have not.

    I recently bought a Moto G4 on swappa in preparation for the switch and because I wanted to see if a budget oriented device could meet my usage needs. In the little bit I've played with it, gaming and what not, it has done everything I need it to and is just as fast as my S7. It blows the S7 out of the water for battery life and I thought 2GB of ram might be an issue it hasn't as I consistently have under 1GB of ram usage which is easily 2-2.5GB less than my S7. My S7 eats the battery no matter how many times I do a factory reset and how much stuff I disable. The camera is great, but for the cost I'm not sure its justifiable any more. If the camera on the Moto G5 plus is 90% of the S7 and just as fast, I can't justify the S8 for $400-$500 more.

    Unless there is a heck of a deal, I may be done with carrier phones.

    the tech just isn't improving fast enough to warrant a necessary upgrade every year.. at this point, 3 year old phones work well.. if you're upgrading each year then more power to you

    It's that time again when I start getting that itchy trigger finger. I don't know if I could wait for the Note 8.

    If I had the Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge I wouldn't upgrade either, it's not worth it in my humble opinion.

    Cheers

    I don't think anybody really NEEDS to upgrade unless they are still rocking the flip phones. I have an S7E. I will upgrade because I want more screen real estate. And the hope that it has a better DAC for better sounding music. Should I upgrade? Probably not... But will I? Yes sir...

    I didn't say phones were my only vice either... We have to sometimes pick and choose which one gets the money and which one stays on the shelf... haha

    In all honesty even with all that hardware upgrade the os samsung uses is crap. Unless you're buying the this phone to root its not worth the upgrade i think. that being said the price is also a big aspect to upgrade.
    Heck i just brought a honor8 and 6x for my dad and sis and a iwatch for the wife and I'm sure all that combined will still be cheaper than the s8

    You've used the OS on the S8?

    I don't NEED to upgrade, either. With JOD, why wouldn't I though?
    If I bought it outright, I might keep my current phone or sell it once a year to upgrade.
    I'll get the S8+ in April and the Note8 in the late summer. Typically, I just upgraded from Note to Note. The Note7 debacle kind of broke my cycle.

    This is basically the same thing I do. JOD comes in handy in times like this.
