Samsung and Apple wowed last year with the release of the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X. Both phones are two of the absolute best (and most expensive) that money can buy, and as you'd expect, there's a heated debate about which one is truly supreme.

One Android Central forum user recently shared that they've had an iPhone X for about a month and are thinking about jumping to the Galaxy Note 8 as a result of iOS feeling a bit stale.

After reaching out to the community to get input about what they should do, we got the following responses:

I've had the iphone X. The Note 8 is a better device in many ways. If I'm picking an iOS device it would be the 8 Plus. We have a couple 8 Pluses in the house.

if you do move to the Note 8 there are some things you need to do first from what I have read. unless you have another Apple device like an iPad you will have issues due to imessenger. don't remember all of it but I am sure there is a thread here that discusses all the issues Apple imposes.
