With the legal issues stemming between Apple and Qualcomm, Apple's past with the iPhone 5 and LTE, and Samsung pushing new 600 MHz tech, should I be weary about an iPhone 8 purchase? I am leaning towards the iPhone 8 (once it comes out) to get more reliable software, stronger battery life, better apps, and Apple support. I will miss the dual edge screens, split screen multi-tasking, some UI elements, Samsung Pay, smart features, Always on Display. I am banking on the idea Apple expands iOS 11 for the iPhone 8, Iris/Retina scanning, a front FP sensor underneath the screen, a high end AMOLED display, the A11 processor + 3 or 4 GB RAM combo, better dual cameras, stronger signal quality (doubt it with Intel, but worth hoping for), quick charging, wireless charging, a nice ergonomic redesign, and anything else better would be a welcomed edition. But my concerns are that Intel and T-Mobile made my experience slightly worse for phone calls, Apple lagged behind on LTE and other radio features like 256 WQAM and 4x4 MIMO. Samsung is also encroaching territories where T-Mobile's network favors a Galaxy. I don't want to deal with Samsung's possible bog down after a honey moon experience just to have more favorable software. I rather have something no frills to be fair. Thoughts? Or is it too early to tell? PS I know it's all speculative at this point.
