https://phandroid.com/2017/11/01/samsung-galaxy-note-8-freezing-issue/ This has me concerned because it seems like Samsung isn't being forceful enough with US carriers to quash major bugs or provide resolutions. Their 1-800 # is absolutely useless. I am thinking about borrowing an iPhone 7+ again until they fix the issue. If I get a hardware warranty exchange or repair, I get a refurbished device or refurbished parts. I prefer Android since I can get direct downloads, a better file system, a headphone jack, easily accessible newer ringtone options, a SD slot, native quick charge outta of the box, better hardware, etc. However, I am starting to reconsider my Samsung venture. I am way beyond on my buyer's remorse. The P-OLED screens LG use are very defective in nature on the Pixel XL 2 and the LG V30 has had its criticism with P-OLED as well. With iOS, it feels like I am using a really child's play OS, but it just works better. If there are iOS 11 issues like there were, Apple takes care of it quicker since it doesn't have the stupid carriers getting in the way. I can go into an Apple Store and get support from Apple without issue. Samsung wants me to go get repairs all the time. Is it worth taking a less creative and highly restrictive OS just to get ease of mind? Or do I pay the price to get all the features I like with the Note 8? The Note 8 is a great phone when it works. Battery life and this possible bug or hardware issue are getting annoying even though it doesn't happen as frequently to me as others. I am just worried about an emergency, using GPS, writing important emails to my boss, missing out on photos when enjoying events, not being able to use a lot of the features, etc. Should I consider just buying the iPhone X? I am not trying to bring excuses to get a new phone because I just want to use something that works and stick with it for years. The X feels clunky gesture wise. Plus $75 for quick charge is absurd. No headphone jack means more dongles and no charging a phone while using the adapters. The 8 seems the best value, but it is also really small as well. I am really weary about using Swappa or eBay to sell phones because of would be possible scammers. The 7 isn't bad, but it is too small. The 7+ is too bulky as well. I am going to try the iPhone X over the weekend. I would like to experience it, but I feel like I would want to return to Android because of its flexibility and more hardware options. But the X would give me more stability and reliability.
