    Having that backup is a great idea as well.
    Yup. I also keep offline/ downloaded maps on the backup phone. Both through Google Maps (which require an update to the map every 30 days). And through another navigation app. Because I can only imagine what changing a SIM out in Atlanta traffic would be like. lol.

    My second phone is a bunch of cans strung together with miles of string. Not great reception, most times you cannot hear the other person.
    I'm guessing you get great battery life though... 😊

    Not sure why folks would really need two phones ??

    One for " real life " Elaine and a " escape from reality " Elaine hmmmmm ???

    If I would have a 2nd then either the Note 8 would be it
    I keep a backup phone just in case. Otherwise, I have been so lazy in selling the other phone.

    One phone that you care about and don't want to destroy and another that you take when you know you're going to be in an environment that could ruin it or it could get lost.

    My backup is ZTE Axon 7 which was my main for a year. Very nice phone and half the price. I traded a S7 edge for the S8, now my main.

    Yes but it sucks when the lines get cut, you cannot just retie them together you have to run new lines. I have lines that need replacing but can't afford to do so.

    I'm using my S7 Edge as my daily for now and using my two week old S8+ at home for now. I also use a iPhone 6S+ in my car for music via bluetooth/car play.

    S8+ for my main phone. I like android because how you can customize it. And you can automate a lot of things especially with the Tasker app.

    But I also have an iPad but mainly for mobile games. Games are much better on ios than Android.

    Do you have two lines? If so what do you use besides your s8 or s8+? Does anyone have both an s8 and s8+?
    Yeah I have both, my main phone is the S8+, main reason is the screen, I had a G6 as second phone but got the samsung BOGO deal a few weeks ago so ended up selling the G6 and keeping a small s8 as second phone

    S8 but have an old moto g (2nd gen) sitting in a drawer. Not sure if that counts since I never touch it. Seriously considering the Nokia 6 as a legit backup though. I always sell my old phone (or give it to my wife and sell hers) when I get a new one. Like to keep it simple.

    It's really not bad. I love them both which why I ended up with both. Lol

    The G6 is pretty small compared to the S8 Plus so using both is sometimes awkward. I get used to the smaller G6 and then BOOM I go to the S8 Plus which is significantly taller.

    I was contemplating a V20 (again) as a 2nd device. Lol.

    Yes, my S8+ is my only phone. I have a multi line with my family, my dad has an iPhone 6 Plus, my mom my previous Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and my sister with the S7E, too. But for me, the S8+ is the only phone I use.

    We are a samsung family. Other half and I both have s8+, just the one. We have our old phones, but they are not on any lines.
