Unless I've missed it, I haven't seen anything posted here about the new Galaxy S8 series. The Note 7 debacle is likely why. With the Galaxy S8's recent release, it has landed at the top of the smartphone food chain. So here are my thoughts on it and its biggest rival, the iPhone 7/7 Plus. Samsung's new S8 series is out. Now it's the proverbial comparison between the 2016 iPhone 7 and the 2017 Galaxy S8. IMO, the S8/8+ are beautiful phones. Having had the S7 Edge before, I can imagine how awesome the S8+ is. While the S8 series is top of the line, there's one major problem for me. It doesn't run iOS. It doesn't matter how beautiful or technologically advanced the S8's are, they run Android. For me, that's the instant deal-breaker. Never thought I'd say this, but after owning the iPhone 6 Plus at the same time as the S7 Edge, I grew to dislike Android more and more. It just isn't for me. As awesome as the S7 Edge was, I wanted to get rid of it for another iPhone. In my opinion, iOS works the best for me. The interconnectivity between Apple devices (phones, Mac, iPads, TV, watch) sealed the deal. The smoothness and cleanness of iOS won me over quickly when I purchased the 6 Plus. The iPhone isn't perfect, nor is any smartphone, for that matter. They don't need to be. It's what works best for the phone owner. In my case, it's iOS. For others, Android works best. To each his own. Even if the often-rumored iPhone 8/X/Edition doesn't quite match the flair and beauty of the S8 series, that's fine with me. Apple won me over from Android (which I had from 2010-15/16). I'm sure Apple will deliver an outstanding device. No Android bashing from me. It's a great operating system. For me, iOS is better and my choice now. I'm glad Samsung continues to raise the bar in smartphone awesomeness. It keeps all other phone makers on their toes, Apple included. After last Fall's Note 7 disaster for Samsung, I hope they've learned their lesson with the S8. It's too bad Microsoft blew it with Windows phones. 10 Mobile is excellent, but with outdated phones to run it, no new devices, and meager support from Microsoft, it's all been left for dead. It's fun to read all about new devices coming out and how the technology continues to evolve. Smartphones are incredible devices and I look forward to seeing what's next. What are your thoughts?
