Sorry no thanks. It's not the OEM fault. It's Android. Look I left Apple once again for Android and I'm about to go back. After 3 months with the 8+ battery is once again crap. The operating system is just terrible. The phone is slow. Yes I've cleared system cache and even did a factory reset. It's not Samsung. There's very little bloat most can be removed. The operating system is built on a platform of years of just jumbled crap. No I don't want to root. I just want it to work like it did the day out of the box. Android fan boys just tell me it's not possible.

LOLOLOL I lost track of what your were tying to say.

Either way, wait for the Pixel 2 XL or just buy the new iPhone X.

If you want to get the true Android experience, never choose Samsung.
I've tried many times to give Samsung chances, and here we go again. The S8+ lagged and got slow many times.

Try HTC, Sony, Pixel, and even Nokia.
You will absolutely love Android.
The only things I love in Samsung phones are the great design, camera, and screen. The software is an utter crap.

John couldn't have said it any better. Samsung puts a lot of garbage and bloatware on their phones plus TouchWiz. They are a terrible representation of what Android is.

If you want to experience Android in how it should be, you need to get a Nexus or a Pixel. The Samsung phones will only get worse over time based on what I've seen in the past.

Android as it should be is still s**t.

s**t built on s**t.

I love how people think Google is the almighty. Their phones still get slaughtered by Apple.

I'm lost? What are you exactly trying to state, I have an iPhone 7 and I'm done with Apple, so restrictive. I'd honestly had very positive experience with Samsung phones, from my Samsung Galaxy, Note 3, Note 7 and now soon Note 8.

You might have a bad phone out of literally millions of units sold, there is bound to be some bad batches. My iPhone 7 is horrendous with the battery life, I always have to have a charger around to keep it up and the OS may be better optimized, but it also lacks many features or shortcuts that an Android device can accomplish. To each their own, I guess.

You probably don't even own the s8+ because that is a bunch of bull s**t.
