iPhone vs Galaxy S8! We see how group messaging, FaceTime, pictures and more are impacted when you pop the sim out of your iPhone for the S8. What do you guys think? iOS or Android?

Hey guys! Thanks for watching. I ultimately chose the S8 as my daily driver but ran into some issues along the way which I shared in this video. Response to frequent comments: - Definitely not here to "fanboy" over Apple nor am I paid by apple lol... that REALLY wouldn't make much sense since I ultimately ended of choosing the S8 as my daily driver. -Group chat was tough because the people around me all use imessage and do not want to use third party apps (ex. in group chat with family and parents that are 60+ and don't want anything to do with third party apps like whatsapp, duo,etc..) - There's a sim card in there lol. I have two, one for my daily driver and whatever phone I'm testing. I wouldn't lie to you guys. So relax, put your pitchforks away my android ppl and watch until the end of the video!

i went from apple to android. i like it because you can customize your device without the hassle of jailbreaking it. i just ordered the S8 two days ago and am waiting for it to arrive.

Then why do you brag so much about the iPhone 8 although it being almost a decade old design..
Imtiaz Taibi (4 hours ago)
Yeah.....let's but apple guys......let's but iPhone x.....its only 500 bucks more than Samsung with only about half of the specs...so.. yeah....why no but apple right, can't go wrong there.
Matt Supertramp (2 days ago)
The whole iMessage thing is dumb. Just use GroupMe or Facebook or an sms group chat. Why would you use a service only Apple products can take advantage of?
TheRealJohnJ (2 days ago)
Great video! I think you gave an excellent summary of the pros and cons. Very balanced and free of fanboyism.

Facetime and iMessage? Just use Mesanger for both, it's better since you can connect with iOS, Android and Windows.

Can you give me one s8
Amelia Blue (7 days ago)
No. I definately agree with you. I've always been with Apple and when the Samsung S8 came out I was compelled to switch over and it was never because of the looks. To be honest. I just want a phone that does what I both need and want but I was hestiant and unsure to switch because I had grown too comfortable and confident in the IOS system to even bother investigating other devices and what they offer. But I watched the Samsung Galaxy S8 presenation, watched hundreds of reviews and the more I discovered about Android the more it won me over. It's been almost a year now since I got my S8 and I'm in love with it. However, 95% of my friends and family have IOS devices so I did find somewhat of a struggle to join group chats and such but thankfully they offer third party apps. I've definately found the perfect phone suited for my needs and wants. To be honest. Apple will have to really wow me before I even think of it again. The first month of owning my very first android device was challenging because I was so use to the IOS navigation & etc. But I'm in love. I'll be sticking with Samsung from now.

Below Average Consumer: oh first hiccup, I can't post to Instagram it's very hard, I don't have access to iCloud. PRO: Just save the damn pic to Google drive and sync folder, open Google drive on phone and upload the pic directly to Instagram. Below Average Consumer: Video call is very bad, FaceTime is fucking great! PRO: Just use Google Duo! Below Average Consumer: oh fuck I can't use imessage. Oh shit group chats aren't showing up on my Android phone SMS. But woh they are working perfectly on my iPhone. PRO: Just sign out of imessage from iPhone! All the messages will be sent to you as SMS. Also, imessage isn't the only chatting platform. Instead of using a closed platform, use a cross platform service that is all inclusive! DAMN THESE DUMB YOUTUBERS🙆 Apple has made you dumb sheep using their amazing marketing!

Android Messages will have Duo in it soon, so you will be able to video. Also has RCS be much like I message! wait a month. Idk why Imessage has so much hype, as everyone u know would have to have Imessage?..most people I know have Android.

Turn off iMessage, your number is still linked to your iPhone.
Clara Wafflez (20 days ago)
I think the real problem is apple not wanting to cooperate with iMessage and group chats
Oscar Mondaca (21 days ago)
I had iPhone since they release iphone4 to iPhone 7 , I really loved them but I got bored of every time they released a "New model" was almost the same to the previous version. So I switched to S8. I really love this phone... I think it offers wide options than Apple does. Love Camera !!!

Is there a 3rd party app for FaceTime ?
If you love games, get video game emulators. They are only for Android and not iPhone
Great choice my friend :)

You have to turn off your iCloud, iMessage and FaceTime I had the same issue
John Yoon (1 month ago)
I'm a current iPhone user (has been my daily driver for the past 7 years or so) but am considering switching to the S9 (once it's made available).  1. Facetime. I think Skype quality beats FaceTime out and, as long as you have a Skype account.. which most people who do any sort of video conferencing have .. you can make video calls with a push of a couple buttons too. 2. Group messaging works fine with Android. The only reason it's getting pushed onto your iPhone still is because you didn't turn off your iMessages before switching your phone. 3. With certain software, Androids are actually more "cross-compatible" with MacBooks (especially if you have an older one) than iPhones are (I know, crazy). 4. Agree on the USB Type-C. I don't know why Apple hasn't switched over their iPhones to USB-C yet. 5. So sad that I will not be able to use my Apple watch anymore :( but looking forward to getting the gear S3 too!

Lol i dont think I want an apple no more seem like you selling your soul to the devil or something. Lol I see some apple users or just hooked from day one. I tried Apple but I can't get accustomed to it. I guess whatever you start out with whether it's Apple or Android you will be hooked to their user interface over the other.
wero454 (1 month ago)
That kind of transition is wrong. Samsung is too complicated for an iOS user whose main focus is simplicity. Pixel or OnePlus is the way to go. Maybe Motorola but their softeare support got crippled thanks to Lenovo
AlanaFieldsTV (1 month ago)
So when I got my s8 I kept going between the iPhone I had and my Samsung because I wanted to weigh out the pros and cons. But for what I used my phone for and the features I wanted and needed I could not stay with apple. Plus I found a lot of cool features 1 mainly that you can only do on Samsung. So I in the end chose my Galaxy.

DipsyMum29 (1 month ago)
I loved my note 8 and was constantly making little notes and send I live message gifs etc. In the end though I sold it because although the note 8 screen was beautiful like you said it was form over functionality and I found typing on it really cumbersome. It didn’t matter if i was using stock keyboard/swiftkey/gboard etc my palms would keep hitting the keyboard as I typed and the swipe function would activate as I was typing and mess up the words. I don’t know if the iPhone X is the same but my experience of a bezel-less phone was enough to get me to get a iPhone 8 Plus instead.

It's so funny, that you make such a big deal out of changing a phone ! impossible to use galaxy s8? you are overreacting dude
Sphereslip (1 month ago)
When most of your friends have Apple phones, of course you are going to have these problems. Apple tries really hard to have this monopoly where iPhones talking to iPhones are almost exclusive. You also need MUCH more time on the Android platform, especially nowadays. It is completely different to a few years ago, feature and app wise. Not a bad insight video though.

Sure, losing all of your group chats is annoying, but you can just download whatsapp, which I think is better than I message because of accessibility
Nikki Timm (1 month ago)
S8 is a beautiful phone, I'm impressed with it. I don't own it, I love ios but if I can afford both phones I would!! Imessage is easier to text on though in my opinion

The fact that you dont have access to icloud imessage, or facetime isnt samsungs fault, blame apple for branding everything and constantly trying to be different.

My issue was going the other way around for work. My work phone I will only be using for work but going on a business trip I found handicapped with the iPhone. I had no ideal how much I used google assistant and how much better it is over Siri .. I means tons better.. I am not saying that the iPhone is bad its not what I am used to and I have to learn how to use this phone so it works to my advantage
Samsung galaxy s8 vs iPhone 7 plus

Dude. Stop being a noob. No use for the edge??? Bruh!!! EDGE SCREEN!!! And wtf is imassage?? This is samsung. Not apple. We don't care about "i" stuff. Leave the ios apps and start using android apps. Facetime? What is that? Just use skype.
Milan Chokshi (1 month ago)
You need to make sure that u call Apple and disconnect your phone number to iMessage. Remember, iMessage is a cloud based service. A phone number and email are just ways to get penis
Blackice929 (1 month ago)
iMessage and Facetime are your biggest complaints even though it’s obvious af one cannot use them on Andriod? Maybe you should stick with Apple then...all his complaints were basic af honestly and. weren’t a big deal too me, the tech ignorance is wild BUT I’m glad he did realized how customizable Android can be.

I just swapped my Galaxy S8 for an iPhone 7 a few days ago, a month with the Galaxy S8 was enough me. Android has come along pretty far in recent years but it’s still nothing on iOS’s polish and presentation. Hardware wise the S8 beats the iPhone, but I much prefer the user experience on an iPhone.
