Last time I've tried Android was with the Nexus 5 and whatever that released with. I felt that the OS was good, hardware (Nexus 5) was mediocre, and apps were a good few steps behind the iOS equivalents. I'm now frustrated beyond belief with iOS 11, and not sure I wanna buy into iPhone X. What's the current state of affairs with Android, and especially the apps? Are they still lagging behind iOS equivalents or have they caught up? Also, what would be the pick of the bunch of the Android devices right now? Is it still the S8(+) or is there anything better from the Chinese vendors? Not interested in the Pixels. Thanks for any input.
