Not looking for a fanboy war, just good reasons to stay or leave. I recently damaged my old iPhone 6 beyond repair, so have to get a new one. Generally I'm very happy with iPhone/iOS, but like everyone I have a few gripes. Note: two of my long standing gripes seems to be fixed; option to use look-up service for unknown numbers and now also wireless charging on the new models. They (Apple) also drive me slightly insane by forcing their apps on me, like when I plug it into my car, Music starts by default, and I nearly drive off the road before I have stopped it, and got my favorite streaming service going. Similarly, but not nearly as frustrating is that it always defaults to Safari, Map and so on. Their obsession on removing ports, leaving you with just a few proprietary ports and a $hitload of adapters. Last gripe I can pull from the top of my head (but not least) is the way they try to isolate IDEs like Pythonista. I can always get external code into the phone by copy pasting, they just make my workflow unnecessarily frustrating. If I look past those gripes, I very much like the rest. Their phones (like most of their products) feels like A PRODUCT. Much what you get from other vendors just feels like components and SW thrown together to make a nice spec sheet, and then add some bloat ware on top to keep the price down. It's also easy and effortless to upgrade to new models, backup and restore is trouble free. Interaction with other apple devices like iPad and Mac is also very smooth. Still, with those above mentioned gripes in mind, I'm now seriously considering a Samsung Galaxy S8. The Note 8 looks even nicer, but doesn't seem very pocket friendly. No need to suggest other Android devices. I don't like the position Samsung and Apple have in the market, but factors outside my control means these are the makes I can chose between. I see from reviews that fingerprint sensor isn't very fast and well placed. Any experience, how is it for real world use? Other positives / negatives regarding Samsung / Android? iPhone X looks like an amazing piece of HW, but I think my gripes will still be present, and even though I'm not paying for my phones, I do feel it's a bit expensive for what it is (a tool that I use pretty hard, and could break at any time). Then there's availability. I don't really know if I can rely on my iPhone 4S until ipX becomes available in Norway. Any input will be appreciated, especially if you have first hand experience on switching between the two.
