It’s no secret that the Galaxy S8 is one of the most popular and capable phones ever released to the masses. The amount of work Samsung put into making this phone one of the highest quality devices to hit the market is clearly evident. But there’s really just one obstacle keeping me from buying the new Samsung Galaxy S8, and that obstacle is… Samsung.
A few years ago, only the most high-end computers and only a handful of smartphones utilized USB Type-C. But in the year of 2017, virtually every laptop and flagship smartphone emerging from the market comes equipped with these high-speed ports for quick charging and data transfer. To be able to come home and use a single cable for charging your phone and your laptop is such as satisfying feeling.
As an ardent fan of Google, its products and services, and of course its partners, I was ecstatic to see the Alphabet branch team up with Samsung to create and release a new and arguably amazing laptop-tablet hybrid earlier this year—the Samsung Chromebook Plus. Not only does this attractive piece of hardware run Chrome OS, it also has the native ability to download and install virtually any Android app from the Google Play Store.
The Pixel is by far one of my favorite smartphones ever, but it’s far from perfect. I’ve owned quite a few Android devices, and while the Pixel delivers an experience like no other, it is a good time a wishlist was compiled for Google to consider for the second generation Pixel.
