    The reasons I would go back to iphone: more stability with apps (not necessarily android's fault, imessage and continuity like marking a book on iphone then picking it up on ipad and air drop (i do use samsungs version and im ok with it). Its more of ease and convenience with ios.

    I switched back to iphone 7+ for a week because I had app issues with Lyft glitching on S8+. While its been more stable I also haven't driven much in the week. iOS 11 beta has been stable and everything is working solid. However not everything is how I want it like android. This is the boring part.

    I created many shortscuts or widgets on android. If I need to pickup somebody on regular basis, i have a short cut to click on their location and auto guide me to them. If I want to turn on bluetooth or anything for settings I swipe down and this is convenient while driving vs ios you have to go to settings. Then you have things like Nova launcher. More customization, I have all of my preffered items on half of my home screen. The rest are in two screens and finally the rest in the app drawer. Its not OCD but more of a preference of 3 pages of apps and shortcuts and the rest tucked away.

    I like both ios and android. For business ios (ipad for photography) and for personal daily gadget its the s8+. While I will highly benefit from the stylus I'm not really interested in upgrading the note8. I only use the camera on phone for random snapshots. Most notes I type, and I can edit a screen shot with my finger. If I need to draw I have the ipad with pen. had the s8+ not existed I would be getting the note 8 after returning the note 7. Currently I don't run out of memory with 4gigs of ram and 256 sd card. Had the note come out with 128/256gb then maybe I would be slightly more interested.
    Now I do have another +1 for the galaxy is the gear s3 watch. Works fantastic and prefer it over the apple watch.

    Now if the iphone 8+ or iphone special edition is mind blowing and allow widgets native similar to the app WORKFLOW and has a pen or smart connections like ipad pro then I would consider it.

    ^ Yeah, I'm sure there will be awesome phones released this fall, but none will be a Note. The Note (even with some compromise) is in a class by itself

    One thing you could really do is pre-order a Note 8 today. It won't be delivered until 9/15. Apple, I'm sure, will have their event before then. If, after the event, you think you like the new iPhone better then cancel the preorder.

    Look at this thing. It's awesome. Plenty will go for the Note 8, particularly those Note users that had gone through the Note 7 debacle.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...d00f21455a.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...2836c7f0b1.jpg

    So I purchased an unlocked iPhone 6 plus when it was launched. Used it for quite a while exclusively, and then when I got my OnePlus One I switched between the two, then eventually got sick of the laggy camera on the OPO and stuck with the iPhone until the Galaxy s7 was released, I jumped on that and absolutely LOVED IT.

    I recently dusted off the iPhone again, threw my SIM into it and used it... That lasted for 1 full day. Things I took for granted on Android were just missing or poorly implemented. Google Assistant, custom keyboard, faster auto-focus, Podcast Addict, sharing between apps, Gmail experience... I gave it a good shot to answer the OPs question and I'm looking at either the s8 or Note 8 currently and personally not considering an iPhone anytime soon based on my usage.

    It works for a lot of people though who just want a simple phone that is reliable, and I have no issue recommending it to family and friends who want my advice.

    Well, I was going to wait to see what the iPhone, V30 and Pixel XL 2 had to offer, but Samsung wisely made their offer to former Note 7 owners and that $425 sealed the deal for them with me. Smart move, Samsung!

    Currently using the iPhone 7+ (prior was the note 7 and 6s+). I'm holding off until the next iPhone is announced and decides whether which phone I want next. I do like both Samsung and Apple. They have their pros and cons.

    I changed my mind
    Pre ordered it. Why? Dual audio for one and realized how well integrated everything is with Google. Switching to Duo on iPhone I had to enter the pin for it to work again. Switched backed to S8+ open up Duo and the pin auto filled itself. That's just one of many perks. Idk if the ew iPhone will convince me enough. Sidesync works well on the mac that airdrop is not sorely missed

    When I had the note 7 and sidesync was horrible on my MacBook. Is it better now?

    I was going to wait out for the iPhone announcement but after stopping by at Best Buy 4 times I made up my mind and placed 2 preorders.

    Wanted to go over to android when Note 7 came out, but we all know what happened there. Tried out the KeyOne and it was great, but wasn't what I was looking for.

    iPhone 8 will be great, but Apple is going to charge an even higher price than the Note 8. In my opinion the Note 8 does so much more than the iPhone ever will (SPen and DEX).

    I didn't even wait. I pretty much knew I'd be getting the note 8 from about June onwards. The leaks for the iPhone 8 coupled with the price mean I'm not upgrading my iPhone this year. I will stick with my 7 plus which I bought outright last year and still has another year of Apple care plus. My new phone this year will be the note 8 which I've already pre-ordered.

    I will never go back to an iPhone. The horrid abomination that is iTunes keeps me away. And the blind sheep that use these phones. And the locked down level of customization.

    Curious will you be regularly switching between the IPhone and Note 8?

    I'm not sure how it's going to work yet but I intend to use both phones everyday. I may consider putting my main sim into my note 8 but then I'd loose all the continuity features such as the ability to make and receive calls on my mac, iPad and Apple Watch with my main number.

    I have been an apple user since the 3GS. I’ve never had an android device. The note 7 convinced me to try android, but I never got the chance because of the problems with it. So I hung onto my 6plus for another year. I planned on waiting for apple to release their new phone, but I signed up for the beta for IOS 11. And there is nothing about it that makes me want to keep an apple device. It really is the same as 10, but some things are in bold now. I don’t see a difference. So if I stuck with apple I would have a shiny new device that worked just like this POS 6 Plus. I preordered my note 8 yesterday and I don’t regret it one bit.

    A few things already beginning to bug me about the iPhone 8 and that's the possible lack of any FPS at all and from what I've been reading today the wireless charging will only work with Apple charging plates or ones that they've licensed. So any wireless charging stand or plate we already have will not work with it so more money into their pockets. I've bought the iPhone every year (sometimes twice) since the 3G just like I buy the Galaxy S or Note every year too because I like trying lots of different phones. I will get the iPhone 8 but definitely not at launch this year and I'll wait til the price drops or see how many negative features put me off
