Still have the IPhone SE, but just bout paid off. Seriously looking at Motorola phones.

What say the BITOG faithful?

Thank You in advance

I've been "Team Droid" since I bought my first one in '12. My wife was the same way, tried an iPhone (I believe the 5) when they came out, after two years she made the switch back to droid and says she'll never switch again. My mom has a Galaxy and likes it a lot. I've messed with it a bit, and while it works just fine, I find the UI to be more complex than my droid. Everything just works on it, you could give it to a 1st time smart phone user and they'd have it completely figured out in 30 minutes.

I like the Samsung OS minus all the bloatware.. wondering if and when they plan to get rid of it.. I hate forced apps on my phone. I disable them though. I am not a fan of the Motorola OS. Go to a store and play with both. See which you like better.

Both make good and bad phones. This shouldn't be a Samsung vs Motorola battle unless your comparing each others user interface.
Motorola is closer to being pure Android than Samsung is. There are good choices with both manufactures.

I had a Droid, then Samsung, then another Droid that lasted 10 days before I returned it. I hated it. It wouldn't play nice with my car. Pandora wouldn't stream. That was a deal breaker.

I just got Moto G5s plus. I like that it has almost stock Android with no custom skin over it. Most lag, studders etc. cases happen on heavily skinned devices, even with top notch specs.

I’m thinking of the Samsung J7 for what I want. I don’t do much games or other stuff with a smartphone

My vote would be Samsung, S6 can be had for really cheap these days if you wait for a deal or if you can spend some $$$ S8 is the way to go.

Excellent camera, response time and overall a better phone.

I am planning to get S8 as well smile

Well, I think the J7 is more than sufficient for me. Maybe wrong but I’ll check them out

What problem you trying to solve changing phones?

The major qualm and benefit of iPhone SE is size.

I've always been a fan of the MotoG series. Currently have a Moto G4+ 64GB. Carrier unlocked and carrier agnostic with microSD slot. I will probably run this for another couple years as it does everything I need it to and then move to whatever the next thing is.

I don't do contracts and I'd rather just pay for the phone up front and be done with it.

My main complaint about flagship phones, even prior generations, is their often abysmal battery life. That's the price for high resolution screens, fastest CPUs and GPUs, multiple lens cameras, NFC antennas, wireless charging etc. They have so much stuff crammed in that there is no room for bigger batteries.

I left Apple in Nov '16 and went with a Moto Z Force. I really liked the phone for a while. Then I got to the point I wanted to put pics on bitog.com and I couldn't figure it out from my Droid. I put up with it a while. Then I got to where I wanted to listen to Podcasts. Always seemed to have issues with my Droid. Last Nov '17 I bellied up and paid $320 to buyout my Motorola Contract.

Purchased the 8 Plus and couldn't be happier. Tremendous battery life, easy to work, pics transfer work like a charm, podcast familiarity, etc. I'm just saying...

I got sick of Apple but I came back. It was very humbling to my biological and church family. Man, you shoulda seen their faces. I just sucked it up. I can't imagine every leaving Apple again.
