    So you're after a current top-end flagship device, money no object?

    My preference out of those is Samsung S7/S7 Edge , but because that's really what I've seen and know. And I don't think many will recommend an iPhone on a forum that's all about Androids. LOL! You go ask the same question on an Apple forum, get different answers probably. I've not seen too many LGs, and Sony phones I've not seen for myself at all.

    So much depends on what's important to you. I've been in the market for several months and have yet to decide what tradeoffs I'm willing to accept for my next phone.

    If you trade phones yearly, it probably doesn't matter. But if you tend to keep phones more than two years, then support might be a factor.

    Best value for the money depends on what is most important to you.

    I admit to being an Android fan who is considering the iphone7. But only because I haven't found anything yet in the 2016 Android phones that speak value to me. They either fall short on hardware or short on OS/security timely updates. Which admittedly is where Apple shines on both counts. Ergo my reluctant interest in the iPhone.

    Personally, I'm waiting for the Pixel XL to emerge from the shadows. Should the Pixel fail to interest me, then my choices become really difficult if I hope to stick with Android flagships.

    There are some great choices at the $400 point, but they hold little interest for me unless I plan to buy again in less than a year or unless I really compromise on some of my important points.

    Yeah basically iPhone wise I was going to do the upgrade programme so new one every year..

    Android would be a case of get whichever one then sell it and spend the extra on the latest one when it arrived if I felt was a worthy upgrade. If not then would hold out a little longer for the next best thing...

    As I say I use my phone for everything literally on it most of the time lol

    Actually, what sorta prompted my iPhone interest was the high resale value should I try it and not really like it. I figured it would be easier to sell it and move back to Android than vice-versa.

    But if you're in the market to trade phones every year, you probably can't lose regardless what you choose. Except you wallet will likely know the difference. ;)

    I really like the phone however I am having the issue with my 5ghz router wifi is fine on 2.4 but at snails pace on 5 :(

    The only other issue I have right now is memory I'm worrying if the 32gb is going to be enough.

    I have 14 days to return and I'm considering switching out to the Xperia xz but don't want to regret it
