    So I am not a loyal iPhone user, with that said I gave that piece of junk up for the new beast THE NOTE 8. I usually go back and forth from Apple to android, but them days are over. The note is so much more of a better device than my old 7 plus. The days of me saying, well everything just works on the iPhone is long gone. I have found so many bugs on iOS that to me it's unusable. My note on the other hand just works...

    I did the Android apple thing for several years and I'm just done with it. I'm Samsung to stay now. Note 8 is the best phone I've ever had.

    You didn't turn in your note 7? They cut the service from it, right?

    I've had mine since Sept 5th and love it, glad you enjoy the device. I've been hearing alot of rumblings about ios being very unstable and buggy and Laggy lately. It seems that the "it just works" montra isn't holding these days according to some people. It's also becoming more apparent in many online comparisons that even though iPhone 8 plus during heavy lifting (video editing, and queuing up high graphics games) outpaces the note 8, when doing day to day app opening and closing and memory management, the note 8 is faster and smoother.

    It's apparent to me that it's definitely not the company it was under Steve Jobs, yet I know a lot will argue that lol. I still use iOS for work but only because I'm required to. The note has some hiccups I've noticed but not frequent, whereas iOS has them multiple times a day lately. I have a friend who swears only by Apple and he is now starting to realize the same, but he still won't come over to android.

    I had Verizon at the time, they sent a refund check but never required me to return it. They blocked service twice around the launch of the S8, but all you had to do was put the SIM card back in a different phone, call Verizon tell them it wasn't working, then once they fixed it swap the SIM back into the Note 7 and worked fine! After the S8 came out they stopped aggressively trying to get people to stop using them and didn't try blocking service again. My dad is still using it now that I have the Note 8.

    Wow, never knew that's all that had to be done. I had sprint with my note 7 and I was probably one of the last to turn mine in. I went to the s7 and returned it because I thought the battery was terrible. I then went back to the iPhone.

    Well that was all on the carrier side, you did need to block OTA updates of course because they sent out all those updates to stop the phone from charging but there were a couple message boards at the time dedicated to helping people block updates or revert back if they had updated.

    Not to play devil's advocate here but just as a retort to your iPhone 7/7+ is junk statement... I'd have to STRONGLY disagree with you there. Apple has always made great phones, yes they lack customization and countless other software/ hardware delights we get to enjoy on Android but the iPhone is no slouch. As a someone who owns both devices I'd have to say that with either device, as long as you periodically restart the device that both of them just work and if either device is giving you a little grief then more than likely it's time to restart it or perhaps you've downloaded a rouge application. Just my 9 though...

    Yea, I would definitely have to disagree with your statement. Hardware top notch, iOS 11 junk...period. If you like it that's cool, it works. For me, it's junk. But that's why there are plenty of phones to choose from.

    To be fair after downloading IOS 11 I got the Note 8 and haven't looked back. That being said, I never really had an issue when I did exclusively use the 7+ just minor annoyances. No more than any other phone I've ever used.

    I've had my Note 8 for over a month now, and it gets better every day. Prior to that, I used a Note 4 for 3 years and a Note 2 for 2 years before that, so I think I might hold onto the 8 for a long while.

    The Note 8 an absolute beast. My recent phones from the start Moto OG Droid - Galaxy Nexus - LG G2 - S6 - S7 edge(dropped) - Note 5(replacement).

    While each new phone purchased was better than the previous,(Note 5 was a downgrade Vs S7) performance would palpably feel slower/stagnant within a week or so of use. This is honestly the 1st time the phone has felt as good as it did the 1st day.

    The memory management is easily what stands out the most but it just does everything fast and reliably. Display is gorgeous and somehow Samsung keeps making them better. Coming from the Note 5 glad to have great battery life again, not S7E good but will last me the day. Foresee keeping this phone for a good 2 years. I'm sure the Note 9 will be amazing/fingerprint in front but man did they knock this out of the ball park!

    I left the iPhone 7 plus because after using the first iPhone, and the the 4s thru the 7plus, i feel like there wasn't much innovation involved. Each iPhone has similar experience and I'm just got tired of it and wanna try something new.

    I had the s3 which I hate, then the note 5 was great but traded it in for the iPhone 6s plus and apple watch when it first came out. Sold the apple watch cus it was unnecessary to have. The note 7 came out, and I traded the iPhone 6s plus for it, but the recall happens and had to go for the iPhone 7 plus. Now in with the note 8 and for the s3 gear frontier and it's been a month now... It's great! I rarely use my iPad now, only when my phone is out of battery. My iPad has the iOS 11 which is bad... Made my iPad air lagged and the interface is complicated comparing to the prior version.

    I'm happy with my note 8 and s3 gear frontier.
