    I've had good luck with Samsung but I like to try new things too. I've had an HTC One M9 and an LG V20. I liked the M9 but the camera sucked. I also really loved the V20 but the camera was decent but nowhere near as good as what Samsung has put out the past few years. Very intrigued by the V30 and will probably end up getting one of them when they drop.

    I will say that the S8+ is an awesome phone and I am really impressed with it. Wish it had an IR blaster but it is a great phone.

    I hate that my S8 is not as to integrate well with my work email/contact/calendar account based on Microsoft Exchange. Sure, Microsoft has an app that works well in Android, but the information is confined in the app. This makes bixsy useless, and limits the phone's functions in general.

    Apple does a much better job in allowing various email platforms to be integrated.
    It's down to the app developer to include bixby function. There's gonna be more app compatibility in the future I'm sure

    I hear you @Snareman. I've had numerous problems with my S8+...or rather, the exact same problem over three warranty replacements. For reasons I can't understand, my USB-C port keeps losing the ability to connect to USB peripherals or to my Gear VR. And after trying virtually every software fix, including factory reset and firmware reflash, the only solution has always been to simply get a warranty replacement. It's been infuriating, almost to the point where I wanted to use my T-Mobile Jump On Demand to just make the plunge into the Apple-verse.

    ...but then I considered all the stuff I'd have to give up. Wireless charging, Samsung Pay, the iris scanner, etc. My Gear S3 would work with an iPhone, albeit poorly. Alternatively I could get an Apple Watch. But the wife has an iPhone 7 Plus and an Apple watch (both birthday presents from me, ironically), and I've got to say that I rarely have any envy for those devices.

    If Samsung sucks, it's only because they push the envelope with regards to innovation more than Apple, and sometimes fail at it. Mind you, I'm not trying to take a dig at Apple. They're more conservative in their approach, and when they release a technology, you can be sure it'll work seamlessly with all their other products. But I prefer to take my chances with experimental tech, even when it doesn't work perfectly. So while Samsung has its issues and isn't always as reliable as Apple, I've sort of learned to live with this.

    Nope. I have had nothing but Samsung phones for at least a decade. I have tried a few others during that time, and I have ALWAYS been found them completely unacceptable in one way or another. Happy Samsung long-term owner here.

    I am done with Samsung. my next phone will most likely a pixel.
    horrid battery, redundant and bad apps (except Samsung browser), the lock screen is atrocious, laggy.
    I use a Moto z play for work and have had it about a year. never once have I had to restore it or clear the cache and it runs like a top. I have to restore my S7 about every other month because it just runs like crap. The fingerprint sensor is far and away better and works like it should. touch it and it unlocks and opens the phone, touch it again and it locks the phone. double tap a notification and it opens, fingerprint if it's locked.
    The S8 offered nothing except bixby. I wanted the note 8 but it's an S8 with a small battery and pen.
    Samsung pay has been the only thing keeping me, and with them offering up the app next year. why stay.

    In my case I'm not Feed up with Samsung performance. But I believe they create

    some useless apps like: Bixby-Samsung Internet-Pin unlock on the back,.etc. Bixby

    created to compete with, the giant Google Assistant: Samsung internet can Not

    substitute the mobile browsers..Chrome-FFox-Opera >>Now they copy and

    came in SGs8 with the Phone unlock from the back, which hasn't worked

    as expected. Users in undeveloped countries don't pay attention to

    these features - Hope its market strategist get the message
    Samsung internet is the best browser there is

    Exactly what kind of problems are you having?

    My work exchange account works great on my S8.

    Here as well. I've had so many branded phones especially after the Note 7 issue, every.single.time. I'm back with a Samsung. Now the Note 8 is coming out...

    I had the s7edge before s8+. Mine as well was glitchy pretty bad, all sorts of issues. S8+? Night and day difference, even (in my opinion) the s8+ reminded me of my beloved Note 7

    I had a Samsung Galaxy S6 and a S7 both of which I loved, but I was having battery issues with both after about 6 months of use. I really didn't like the curved glass feature of the S8, so I decided to try the LG G6. Boy, I'm glad I did make the switch! I have no complaints with the G6, as I now have incredibly battery life, great camera, fast performance, and a large screen.

    I've had Samsung phones over the past 5 years and I wouldn't dare go to any other flagship. Samsung has been good to me and I haven't had any problems with them that weren't fixed with a software update. I love my S8+ and it has been great to me throughout these past 4 months.

    I use Samsung Internet, BIXBY I've just started using since global release of the voice assistant yesterday and have been impressed so far and call me a whatever but I also love the fingerprint sensor on the back can easily unlock whilst taking from my pocket, or whilst opening the case (I use folio case)

    We are all different we all have our own preferences just because you happen to think things are useless doesn't mean that they are
    I like the fingerprint on the back myself also.

    There is night and day difference between the S7 and s8. Bixby is not The highlight of the s8, not even close.

    I had the S4 and currently use the S7 Edge, but I am jumping ship when my upgrade comes around. My s7e runs like garbage. The first 5 or 6 months I had no issues, now it's like my phone took a step back 5 years in technology. I've been on Android pretty much exclusively since 2009, but I think it's time I head to Apple or the Pixel and give them a fair shot. It certainly can't be any worse.

    I did not say it was a the highlite. I said it was the only thing that was actually different. It may be faster and have a slightly better camera but so what. I have been with samsung since the note 2. Every new model all the reviews come out and say how awesome it is, but they always lag. My Moto G5+ should not run smoother and load games faster, it should not transition screens better. Period. Samsung tends to over complicate things.

    I have been with Samsung since note 2 also, and the s8 series was their best update to date, note 7 was but i don't count that since it was recalled.

    Sounds like Motorola is for you, you found what works for you, that's the main thing. What works for someone usually isn't over complicated for them.

    My Issue with Samsung is that they keep skipping fixing the big issues and totally ignore it's long time problems. But with every awesome thing they do, like Samsung Pay, keeping wireless charging, water resistance, the best screen and arguably the best camera on the market, they totally cover their eyes to make day to day simple use not simple. Being able to use google assistant while the screen off, have to use three motions to unlock the screen, terrible updates (please don't give me the "it's the carriers doing it") just ask the unlocked buyers.
    But dang, that note looks good, and I miss mine. Haven't had one since the 3.

    Yeah, I've been looking the note 8 over, but I think I'm going to wait a couple months for sales

    My first Samsung Android phone was the S7E and because of its awesome experience, I decided to get the S8+. My S7E had no issues whatsoever, including no lags and the best battery life. It could be because it was an Exynos model with up-to-date software but my Snapdragon S8+ is comparatively better. Outside of the occasional software glitch with the navigation menu, I can't complain.
