    All,

    My family is all on Samsung. I was on Windows phone, then went to Moto X (as my first Android. Now I am looking at converting to Samsung. I usually buy a refurbished previous years flagship phone. (hence, the Moto X purchased last year) however, with a budget of $500 I have the following choices:

    S7 Edge (mint - $300)
    S8 (mint - $500)
    S8 (mint - $600)

    I would normally go for the S7 Edge no question, but that frickin S8 looks great. Also, I hear that the S8 has some nice features to prevent accident touching of the edges...thinks like that.

    thoughts/opinions?

    thanks

    I'll add my experiences on the accidental touches. On the S7 Edge, I had a ton of accidental touches. I've had my S8 Plus for 2 months now or so and have had barely any accidental touches.

    Another huge benefit to me is the S8 home button. The physical home button on my S7 Edge was a pain in the butt. It got stuff stuck in there from time to time and would "crunch" a bit. The on screen home button on the S8 is great. I highly recommend the S8 over the S7 Edge if you don't mind spending the extra money.

    Hi
    Had the 7edge before the s8+.
    By Far the S8+ is a much better device - performance - no glitches no over heating - great camera - excellent multi tasking, etc. More screen space.

    I've had the s7edge and now I have the s8 plus... if you're going to purchase it's always an investment to go with the current flagship imo
