    backstory: had iphones ever since they came out, got the Note 7, fell in love, got Note 8, loved that too

    Then i dropped my Note 8 a month ago. On concrete. With no case (i hate how most cases make it feel so bulky). I needed a new phone bc now it was cracked in 3 places. I wondered-how are the new iphones? i knew i didnt want the X, but maybe the 8? in pretty rose gold? was i missing something, sticking to Notes?

    i bought an iphone 8 plus a few hours ago. ive had it home an hour...

    and i want my Note back. First thing in the morning i'm going back and getting a Note.

    What was i THINKING?

    -the screen is so much smaller even though the phones are roughly the same size... i feel cheated

    -the keyboard is super awkward to use

    -i cant even sign up for i tunes without a credit card. even if all i want is to download free apps. i have a cc but thatsnot the point.

    -64 or 256. really, Apple? REALLY?

    -i cant change the icons. it sounds like a small thing until its taken away. i like to make my phone just how i like it, and... this feels like Apples phone, not mine. my Note felt like MINE.

    I'm actually typing this on my old Note-im using my hotspot via my iphone.

    Never again. Unless theres some radical redesign/mission change by Apple re: how much we as users can customize, i'm done.

    Thats how i felt-getting a little bored, wanting something new to play with . But theres nothing to play with on the 8 Plus. The camera is very nice but the Note's has more modes and options.

    I forgot the lack of a "back" button too. I got so used to it with the Note-its super convenient to know i can always hit bottom right to go back. With the iphone it depends which app youre in-sometimes its on top, sometimes its on bottom.. its just annoying having to hunt for it.

    i think if i ever get the itch again i'll try the Pixel or something, but fornow I've realized the Note's where its at.

    I own both the X and the note 8 with the note being my go to device or daily driver. Apple devices have things that android doesn’t and visa versa. The X is probably the perfect size device for me but the note has more functionality then the X does.

    I still have the Note-i'd paid for it in full. It still works fine tbh but the screen is badly cracked. I hadnt got insurance-i meant to and then i just forgot... definitely getting it this time tho.

    You can only use an iPhone how Timmy CROOK and his band of elderly car salesmen like it, not how you like it 🤣

    So many of the things people hate on Apple for are the things that the users love about the phones. Everyone has different needs and priorities. It doesn’t make one person wrong, it’s just different.

    I can appreciate why someone wouldn’t want an iPhone (too simple) and I can appreciate why someone wouldn’t want the Note (too much). These two phones are on opposite ends of the spectrum in my opinion. I have both but the Note 8 is absolutely the best phone available for me. I appreciate the iPhone for what it is, but I couldn’t give up my Note.

    This

    I do like iPhones and iOS but I do get bored with them way too quick. Sure "they just work" but that's not enough for me personally and I hate not being able to do what I want to do with it without jailbreaking. One of the biggest things to peeve me off was when I got my first Apple Watch and even though it is a great device the fact Apple have decided that you can have audible notification tones on the watch but not on the phone too whilst it's paired to it??? How about I choose where I hear my notifications on MY devices? On my Tizen and AndroidWear watches I can choose to hear notifications on either the watch, the phone or both.

    The screen on the X is something else. When I first got my Note, I just couldn't get over how good it's screen is. To KY eyes, Apple's taking of their Samsung OLED panels on the X is better. It just looks so incredible. But once I start using it, it doesn't matter for long because I'm not an iOS person. I can't handle even small irritations like lack of a back button and the way it handles notifications.

    I used both my own personal Note8 and my sister's iPhone 8 Plus.

    They're both really good phones with their own ups and downs.

    I personally prefer the display accuracy of the iPhone out of the box and it does CPU intensive tasks much better due to its substantially more powerful SoC but the sheer featureset of the Note coupled with the S Pen (that I use every day) make it my personal pick.

    My sister is a different person though. She wants something familiar to her old 5s. The 8 Plus fits the bill perfectly.

    I'm not an Iphone person, I'm a Note freak. However, I really wished the Note had a wider flat style screen.

    I used a relative's iPhone 8 Plus on Sunday for an extended amount of time, and I also could not not believe how small the screen is vs. Note8 and yet how large the iPhone is as well as a tad heavier.

    Using an iPhone rely makes one appreciate Android and ESPECIALLY Android + Galaxy Note combo, it is just endless possibility, a beautiful mixture of old school and new school in one to make a Productivity beast

    Astute comment that there's nothing to play with the iPhone. That's why I am Android forever.

    Everyone has different priorities. I couldn’t care less about customization, but value security and updates. That’s why I’ll always use an iPhone as my daily driver.

    Well, the Notes do have styluses, card slots, and headphone jacks. Something an iPhone user will probably never see in a lifetime! 🤣

    Glad you got a new note 8 as regards to both the note 8 and IPhone 8 plus, they are so different. My wife has the 8 plus and the only thing I like about it is the camera. The note 8 just has it all IMO.
