Feel like a hypocrit... Switch back to iPhone from S8+?

Apple to Samsung, now considering going back to Apple.

Had an iPhone 5S for four years. Loved its size for keeping in pocket. Overall great experience with simple and effective iOS.

But I hated the Apple fanboyism and heavy handed control scheme by Apple with iOS updates (CPU throttling with older phones to artificially increase batter life). Decided it was time for a switch.

Got the S8+. Loved it initially but now can't stand the size. With the case it's like I'm carrying a brick around.

Really miss the 4inch iPhone. Apple just discontinued the iPhone SE. So I'm thinking about a regular iPhone 8.

Only thing is I was talking so much shit about Apple before making a switch to Samsung, now my friends will think I'm a hypocrit.

What do you guys think?

P. S. Anyone else also hate the increasing size trend in phones?

      I guess I do. Ex military we have pretty strong bond and few secrets between us. We are blunt with each other. I try to present myself as the no nonsense decisive guy so don't want to shatter that image I present to them.

      If you’re no nonsense decisive it won’t hurt that to be objective as well and acknowledge changes and improvements in current generations.

      Example: Aside from the 60’s era, I never liked any Ford Mustangs. The latest ones are pretty sweet though and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend one to a friend looking to buy. 2004-2011 Durango, Ram, etc from Dodge were fugly with horrible interiors. Current generations are awesome. Wouldn’t recommend before, talked shit about them, but now I wouldn’t hesitate to.

    Do not under any circumstances switch back to iOS. Your friends will ridicule you, your manager will block your promo and I wouldn't be surprised if your SO leaves you. I can confirm that this is what happened to me with I switched back from Android to iOS.

      I thought it was a lie but iPhone users do get laid more. After I switched to Samsung I had a 5 month dry spell that was broken by a string of 4s and 5s. In the end it was bad one night stand sex and lowered self esteem. Now abstaining until I land my hard 8. No relationship or marriage tho.

    Why did you buy s8+, why not s8, which is smaller than any iPhone currently in offer?

    If this phone is too big why not grow bigger hands? Or better yet grow a pair first and not give a shit what others think.

      Can't make dick bigger ergo can't make hands bigger. Luckily if she's decided to play with it she won't care by the time the pants come down.

    Changing your position as you gain additional experience and insight is not being hypocritical, it’s being reasonable.

    Being a hypocrite is to espouse one view while being inconsistent in your behavior/actions.

    Didn't like S8+ with the case, so I went naked. That phone is so beautiful. And it feels super sleek without the case. Try it out.

    Walmart still has a prepaid SE for $140. Walmart Family Plan is actually decent comparable to T-mobile.
