Trying out an iPhone 7+ for the next two weeks as I'm trying to upgrade from my unapologetically worthless Note 5 and loving it. I'll also be giving the Note 8 a spin mid-November as well before making my final decision based on integration and ease of use for veterinary work.

1) You're asking the wrong person

 

2) I want none of them. I already own the Note8 and my sister is likely getting the 8+. Haven't played the 2 XL

While context is easily used to decode your cryptic text, I've seen gematria more easily deciphered without context. 

 

What were we talking about again? Oh, right! RAM master-race.

I'm speaking from personal experience. I've used multiple android flagships and the latest iPhones over the last few months and the iPhone still hasn't been beaten in that regard. It falls behind in other areas but not that.

 

Also if you're going to bash an opinion please use proper grammar and spelling as well as having a counter argument for why you don't agree. It's spelled dumbest btw..

So you like iPhones because of iOS and that it's "easier to use"

I like iOS because its more optimised and not a laggy piece of shit like all the android phones I've owned. It feels like a finished product, android phoes didn't

Well you've used some pretty crappy phones because my Moto g5 plus a budget that I've had since February is still buttery smooth and I've been using a lancher so.

HTC one m7, one max, note 4, s7, s7 edge, s8, s8+ all during the year they released. I've also used a nexus 6 and 6p but not as extensively. I'm just done with android, this 6s plus im using now is astronomically better than them all in my personal experience, it's just a more optimised phone with better app compatibility (I'm irish so a lot of irish apps get neglected on android. On iOS they're updated regularly).

first question, it really depends on your opinion, but talking about specs/ raw power the iphone x is the fastest phone out right now.

 

ive got the iphone x and after about 12 hours of using it i honestly think its the best phone ive had. (ive had an s4, s6, used an s8 for about a week.)  

My speakers dont even fit on or under my desk...PA's FTW

Ive had note 5 and s4 for last 2-4 years and I really wanna try iOS, I tried the iphone X today and i instantly loved it while really not liking the v30 or pixel 2 xl and i really dislike the galaxies infinity displays. The only thing I will miss are google now cards and a calendar widget and data usage widget(idk how to find that on iOS and if its faster or not). If you could be a little more in depth with your experience so far, I would appreciate it.

Just because the display is made by Samsung doesn’t mean that it’s the same as the one in the s8
