Hey /r/EDC, I just wanted to thank all of you. 9 months ago I posted here because I just bought some fun new EDC toys but I was feeling really down. I wasn't working in the field I got my degree in, I had toxic, unhealthy habits, and was living in my parents' basement. Since then, I have landed - what I personally consider - my dream job, moved into my own place, and have been making progress on those toxic habits.

I was not expecting the outpouring of support that I received from a community that likes cool shit in their pockets. Y'all helped me push through a rough time, and for that I am truly thankful.

Now for my list of stuff:

In terms of user experience and overall media consumption, the iPhone is just way better. The touch response is going to feel night-and-day. The screen is also better in every way, although the difference isn't quite as dramatic. Performance isn't going to matter, but iOS always feels smoother than Android because it can maintain a higher framerate through the UI. However, you'll likely might perceive much better performance based solely on improved touch response. The phone's speaker and mic are going to be way better as well.

The camera will be noticeably better, even viewing it on a phone. For one, the dynamic range will be significantly better. Video recording on iPhones is actually better than on any Android device (even Galaxy/Pixel devices).

If you really don't care about iOS or Android, then you should always pick iOS. Android definitely has clear benefits (notifications, customization, interaction between apps, shortcuts/alternative use case, etc), but if you don't care about that stuff then just go iOS. There's a reason people say iPhones just work. They do, and they work extremely well for everyday tasks. There will be very few situations where Android provides functionality that iOS lacks, but iOS instead offers simplicity/streamlining and an ecosystem that totally trumps what Android can offer.

If price is a concern, I would suggest a Galaxy S9. Idk where you're buying your iPhone, but a brand new S9 from Amazon is $519. It's even lower if you keep an eye out for deals, or have access to a qualified AmEx card. An iPhone 8 is $600 new, pretty much everywhere. On swappa, both phones hover in the mid-400s.

Both phones just work, and work very well. They are much less configurable and customizable, but that's only important if it matters to you. One alternative might be the Pixel 3, but it's $650. You'll get the best camera around for general photography, especially in low-light and for landscapes. You'll definitely impress yourself with how good pictures look. However, the S9 and iPhone 8 also have fantastic cameras that exceed what the average person needs from a phone.

One thing you should consider is resale value. iPhone 8 >> Pixel 3 > S9. In a year, the iPhone 8 is going to drop maybe $50. The Android phones will drop at least $100. Honestly, anyone telling you it's a sidegrade is just plain wrong. Flagships from 2016 beat the PH-1 in most practical perspectives. Battery life, form-factor, and OS updates are the only thing the PH-1 excels at and can compete in with 2018 flagships. Everything else is solidly mid-range, or may have competed with flagships from several years ago. There's an well-evidenced reason why the PH-1 has had sales as low as $160 (this week it was $168) and sells on swappa for $250 or less while these other phones cost at least twice as much.

There are a lot of other options but you specifically mentioned iPhone 8 so I just picked the best contenders at that price. If you have an exact number in mind, I can give other suggestions.

Amazon has for less...
Samsung Galaxy S9 Unlocked Smartphone - 64GB - Midnight Black - US Warranty

Just as a BMW 5 series and Mercedes E Class are the more economical mid-range versions when compared to the the BMW 7 series and S Class doesn't make them budget friendly. They're cheaper than the flagship models, but in no way are they affordable compared to real budget friendly cars.

For $500, you can get last year's flagships with ease that will out perform and outclass the midrange of this year. Literally right now you can get an unlocked Samsung S9 for $519.99 for THIS YEAR'S flagship with the appropriate top end specs you'd expect. The midrange devices such as the Moto X4 and G-lines are budget friendly at $200-300, in comparison $500 is a ripoff.

> So when you see Europeans whine about phone prices in their countries, it's perfectly fair to point out that it's their own doing for insisting on such "regulation".

|Product|German price in EUR| USD without VAT^(a)|US price in USD|Which is higher|
| Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB|532.99|515.70|664.97|US price is higher
| Samsung Galaxy Note 9 128GB|852.90|825.23|999.99|US price is higher

a. German VAT = 19%, EUR / USD = 1.1514

in USD without VAT = Eur price / 1.19 * 1.1514

I'm looking to replace my Droid Maxx 2, and debating between the Pixel 3 and the Galaxy S9. I'm sure that's a common debate, I'm still really on the fence.

S9: The last Galaxy I had was the S5 and I liked it quite a bit. Includes headphone jack, and expandable memory. But will also include Samsung bloatware, which isn't a huge issue but it is annoying.

Pixel 3: Camera is stellar, and Google software is best of the best. No headphone jack, no expandable memory.

I know there are plenty of other differences but these have really been the ones that have kept me debating. With black Friday deals coming it looks like Google will be putting the Pixel 3 on sale for $650, and right now on Amazon I can get the Galaxy S9 for $630. So the price difference is negligible. Anyone have anything else they can add?

u/ale_xxx99 · 2 pointsr/phones

Also, the S9 is on sale on Amazon right now for $350

u/legonate416 · 1 pointr/Smartphones

It's been this price for most of the month. Amazon just recently jumped it for a week and dropped it again to make it look like a sale. They're just trying to get rid of stock.

u/codenamejack · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

My 2 cents

Amazon Prime day has a bunch of deals in your budget, and you get warranty as well.

Galaxy S9+ $450

Galaxy S9 $350

[Pixel 3A XL + $100 Amazon GC] ( $479

LG V35 $400

Here is the direct link.

Next time please don't spam with Twitter links.

u/BryanMP · 1 pointr/GalaxyS9

Hey, would you look at that; I was waiting for the S9+ to drop in price again.

For what it's worth, Amazon has the S9 for $620 and the S9+ for $740.

Student / Employee pricing direct from Samsung drops it a bit further, but after $60+ in sales tax I'm back to $740. It's worth it to me, I nearly bought from Amazon last week -- and I would have ended up paying more then. I'm just hoping that they don't drop the price further with all the announcements going on this month.

Thanks, /u/chintan_joey!

u/ShadyPotato445 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

You can get an S8 for $500 or an S9 for $620

EDIT: You can also trade-in your current S7 to Samsung and get a bunch of cash from it.

u/2aj019 · 1 pointr/Visible

You can get it from Amazon since they are having prime day today and tomorrow. S9 for $350, S9+ $450 unlocked but you have til noon pacific time today. Looks like they have S10e 128/256 for $550, S10 $599 and S10+ for $699. But I rather get oneplus 7 pro for that price.
