    So I got my note about 2 weeks ago and I'm liking it. Screen is beautiful and the S-Pen is really useful to me especially with the translate feature.

    But I think I might want an iPhone also. Are there people on here who have two phones? Who go back and forth between iPhone and Android?
    What's that like? What are the challenges? How do you transfer your iMessages to your Android device?

    Yes many of us have two phones. At moment I have iPhone 7+, 2 S8+, a Note 8. It happens. Will get iPhone X likely when it is released and not back ordered in my desired storage and color configuration.

    Going back and forth from iPhone to Android isn't bad but do NOT turn on iMessage. It can cause all kinds of headaches in relation to text message delivery. I just swap sim around. Or use TMobile Digits if I'm feeling lazy.

    I have always had both Android phones and iPhones but the last iPhone that I bought was the 6S and a 6S+. I still use them but my take with me phone has always been an Android. I do use my 6S+ in my car for music via Bluetooth. it just works so well for that.

    I have three lines on T-Mobile so I keep the phones active at all times. I use Google voice for texts because they come through no matter which phone I take with me and same with calls if I gave the person my Google voice phone number. It's free and there's no worrying about text messages not coming through.

    So you've never had issues consolidating your text messages? You don't do anything to keep them synced up on both phones? Thanks for the input.

    I have a S8+, Note 8, and iPhone 7 Plus. Like a poster said above, make sure to keep iMessage turned off. I don't typically sync my messages between devices. I suppose if I wanted to I'd use a cross platform messaging service such as Facebook Messenger, Hangouts or WhatsApp. It might be a little more tedious but you should be able to connect the phones and transfer messages back and forth thru Samsung's Smart Switch app.

    Don't use iMessage so that's the first thing that helps me switch sims between iPhone and Android phone easily. Rest of my stuff is in the cloud (mail, photos, music etc) so it's just put my sim from iPhone to Android or vice versa and good to go.

    I have the Note 8, which is my personal phone and the iPhone 7 Plus for work. I actually find the iPhone pretty utilitarian and boring. I'm loving this Note 8 however. If I didn't need this for work I wouldn't have it., I really don't see anything fun or exciting that it does. Everything, including the camera, is more advanced on the Note.

    I go back and forth but now I think I'm staying Android. At least for a year lol. Apple hasn't made any progress forward in after the release of the 6 plus.

    If you are on Verizon, use Messages+ on your iOS devices, Android, PC, Mac, Web... all synced.

    One of the very few Verizon apps I use.

    I go back and forth. I've had the iPhone 7 plus ever since the note 7 issues. I also have the mate 9, moto z play and had the s8 plus, the lg g6 and v20. I liked the G6 the best and only returned it out of spite because of a price drop at tmobile and they wouldn't honor the price. I enjoy both platforms, each has strong points and weaknesses. No perfect phone it seems.

    Tell me what other phone can record in 4k at 60fps or HD at 240fps using the latest HVEC/HEIF codec that reduces media file size by 50% without loss of quality. The new iPhones will also be able to use AF tracking and OIS simultaneously at 4k? I think thats progress. My N8 can't even play 4k 60fps YouTube videos without looking like a slide show.

    Try watching this video at the highest resolution on your N8. Watch it struggle.

    Did you also watch it in 1080p 60fps? You'll see the difference in smoothness.

    Just did and mine didn't struggle at all. It was on the highest 1440p/60fps setting and my display was maxed out. It was beautiful to watch on that screen of it!

    Honestly looked the same to me, but my eyes are old. Lol. If anything maybe there was extremely minor hiccups now and then, but I've noticed this on all resolutions (and multiple Samsung hardware in the past).
