I’ve had a Moto X (2nd Gen) on the old refund plan for a long time. We are finally going to change to the new plans so we can upgrade phones. I’ve settled between the Moto X4 and the Samsung Galaxy S8. Is the S8 really worth $600 compared to the X4 for $350?
The one thing I am kind of interested in for the S8 is it’s easy compatibility with Gear VR and Google Daydream. But I am not a hardcore gamer. I really love Google Cardboard photos for family memories and may play a view games or VR videos. I have found the X2 to be a bit difficult to use, and it would be nice to use a plug-and-play system that’s made for this purpose. The X2 also has a bad screen door effect in VR photos, but I heard the S8 has an AMOLED screen which is known for the same screen door effect. And that price tag - is the S8 really that much better?
I’m also concerned that the S8 may be missing some Moto features (like wave to wake up for notifications) that I really like. But people seem to really like the galaxy’s for a reason.
I need to decide in the next day or two - hit me with your experiences and wisdom!
