Default Still Undecided if I should go back to Android?

It's been 3 years since I had my last Android phone and iPhones have left me overall satisfied, if not overly impressed because of its not so innovative changes to the UI since notched phones became a thing.

I prefer the Galaxy S10e because of the flat screen, but I can't help but think. Am I interested in the phone just because it's a different ecosystem? How is the "upgrade" worth it? So far I am still undecided because I obviously can't justify it. Am I seriously about to get a lower dpi screen and half the storage just because I want a slightly better camera?

Might as well wait half a year for the new iPhone? But then again I'd still have to live with the notch. Currently have an iPhone X 256GB BTW.

Decisions, decisions.

Wait for the folding phone, that's a communication changer.

I don't miss iOS at all. I liked it well enough when I had an iPhone, but Android is so much better now.

I like them both. I was on Android for a few years, now I'm back on iOS. I'll probably switch back to 'droid in a year or two. I suffer from SOS (shiny object syndrome).

Ok you convinced me guys, I'd most probably pick up the S10 Plus this week. The S10e isn't worth it after all cause it's simply not "different enough" compared to my iPhone X.

Quick question: so what screen protector do you use for your S10 / S10 Plus? The ultrasonic fingerprint scanner doesn't work with glass screen protectors right?

After Gorilla glass 2.5 I am no longer a fan of screen protectors. Unless you keep your keys in the same pockets as your phone I do not see the point. Phone case yes to protect from falls. But I like to touch the actual screen. Guess I am weird that way. I have not has a scratch on a screen in years.

Gorilla Glass is great.
I used to use a Nokia Lumia 930 Windows phone, and I never put a screen protector on it. Hell I never even had a case for it either, the thing was built like a brick (Had an fairly thick aluminum frame, plastic back, gorilla glass front, had some heft to it).

My iPhone on the other hand...screen protector (well more like screen film) and an otterbox case (Since these things are somewhat fragile contrary to what Apple likes to tell people)

iPhones use gorilla glass.. They just dont advertise it.

You can check JerryRigEverything's youtube page and Apple scratches right where all the android phones using GG do. That said, I have scratched both my iPhone X and XS screens. GG is not good enough to go without a screen protector if you really care about scratches.

I've scratched plenty of Gorilla Glass to know better than to believe the marketing.
