    Samsung or iPhone?

    Hello!

    Right now I am using Meizu m3 Note. I have bought this phone because it had an ideal balance of cost and productivity. But it is time to make changes
    So my choice stopped on iPhone 7(or newer) and Samsung 8(or newer). Have heard a lot of positive feedback about both of them. Also, there were some negative reviews.
    Guys, help me to decide please, what is better and why!

    What carrier do you use? It might matter.

    Usually I use my pocket.

    Also, I am using a mobile phone for reading news it the internet, and sometimes for playing games, so I think I need as most performance as it is possible.

    Being the owner of iPhone, I would say iPhone, of course I like the productivity of this device and camera is the best among all other devices. However, you are the owner of Android-based smartphone. It would be more comfortable for you to use Samsung, I suppose.

    Having already used both, I would say without hesitation the iPhone. I was disappointed by the new Samsung (from S7 to S9) and frankly I would not change the iPhone for anything in the world. the iPhone 7 is perfect on all levels but if you can buy a newer it's even better.

    I've used both but in the end it depends on what you're more comfortable with.

    I'm more comfortable with the Android OS.

    Samsung or iPhone?

    Perhaps Pixel.

    I am not a fan of what Samsung does to Android.

    iPhone is best. But if see other androids, then Samsung won't stand against Honor or One Plus or MI.

    From reading a wide variety of threads over the last few months, I'd say that if you want the best cameras, three current model lines stand out:
    - Samsung Galaxy S9 (or S9 Plus or Note 9)
    - Google Pixel 3 (or 3 XL or even the Pixel 2/2XL)
    - Huewei P20 Pro.

    iPhone continues to also be very good, but no longer at the tippy top of the market there.

    But they are so close that, among these flagships, having the best camera quality isn't the same as having the best experience. I have or recently had: iPhone 6S, Moto G5 Plus, Pixel 3, Huawei P20 (non-Pro), and Samsung S7 Edge. My daily driver is the G5 Plus! I'll soon switch to the Pixel 3 solely for its camera, but the G5 Plus is so good for useability that I just haven't put in the effort yet.

    Despite having a free iPhone, it's been relegated to a utility handset to run one particular bit of business software that is also available for Android, but I consider it the least valuable handset. It's mainly that, when using it, I keep running into little obstacles that Android doesn't present or offers workarounds. For example, the iPhone can host an Internet tethering hotspot, but it's mandatory to have both WiFi and Bluetooth enabled. On Android, I can select just Bluetooth for casual use on the client handset, so the battery can power the hotspot for a day or two, rather than a couple of hours. Also, setting up accounts for anything other than Apple-hosted services on iPhone took days to deal with mysterious obstacles with no meaningful error messages.

    I kept running into so many issues like this that I decided to stick with Android. Both are very good platforms with great hardware available, but Android either just works or can be resolved in a straightforward way, while Apple either just works or just doesn't work.

    If you don't need the absolute best camera, save yourself several hundred dollars and get a midrange Android phone that you can carry anywhere, even where it might get damaged or lost -- you can replace it for less.
