The Samsung Galaxy S8 has taken the tech industry by storm as the best Android smartphone you can buy. The display is gorgeous, the design is unmatched and the performance is top notch. The Galaxy S8 finally delivered everything I needed to cut the Apple cord and jump ship to an Android smartphone.
I do miss iMessage, but there’s enough about the Galaxy S8 to soothe the loss of Apple’s simple and seamless messaging app. Here are five reasons why I made the switch from iOS to Android and I’m not looking back.
Coming from iOS, notifications included floating pop-ups and angry red badges that judgmentally showcased my growing pile of unread emails. These notifications overwhelmed and annoyed. I’d turn the badges off, or shuffle the app to another page so I wouldn’t have to stare at it anymore. My lock screen became a jumbled mix of stacked notifications — something to ignore as I unlocked the display. It’s safe to say my iPhone never became a cornerstone of productivity.
