I have been using iphone all the time and then BlackBerry, But suddenly after seeing Galaxy S8 I didn't get any other thought other than buying it. I have been using it from the last two years and it's wonderful mainly the curved display it has. I'm loving it even now. Samsung releases updates often to make sure you won't get bored with same look when you buyed.
Other wonderful product I purchased from Samsung is Galaxy watch 46mm. It's completely different thing. I always wear it all the day to track my sleep and my step count to make sure you are on track.
My mom was struggling with an old washing machine and I gifted her Topload washing machine from Samsung. She loved it.
