Good info, thanks!
That would work for me. But we'll have to go to a store so she can hold it in her hand to see if it will be a good fit. (personally, I'd probably prefer the S8+)
We use T-Mobile, they've been great and the best for us so far, so no plans on switching... especially if they keep improving things like they seem to be.
For me, I prefer Windows Mobile... as my mobile use focus is on convenience (not sure how familiar you are with Win10 Mobile, but it's brilliant) and working seamlessly with my Win10 laptop.
My ideal solution or phone fantasy, would be the S8+ running Win10 Mobile! I doubt that will happen, so I'm waiting to see what happens with the "surface phone". But I am all about the S8 for my wife if it's a good fit after trying it out.
I want Windows 10 Mobile to be stable, supported, and have a thriving app ecosystem with all the major apps. And a pony.
Now that that is out of the way, I like the consistency of iOS, but I don't like iOS. iOS X is light years better from a UX perspective imo than iOS 9 was, but there are still niggling little things that annoy me. And Apple irritates me on so many levels, and that irritation is only exacerbated by managing a network that is 95% Mac.
I don't know Android well enough to know what I want there, but I dislike what Samsung has done with their bloat ware. I was looking at Nexus for my WP replacement, but Alphabet chose to kill that in favor of a flagship that is more aimed at a consumer, than creating a clean experience (I'm guessing, not having used a Pixel).
OnePlus 3 looks promising. If I had to choose today it would probably be one of these.
