Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.
I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.
I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!

Last night at E3 there were two games that really stole the show. Sony showed off some gameplay of ‘The Last Of Us’ for PS3 and it caused a lot of buzz because of the great post-apocalyptic visuals. There was also a gameplay video of ‘Watch Dogs’ by Ubisoft which showed off next-gen-level graphics. ‘Watch Dogs’ revolves around the premise of the ctOS, a digital network that forms the basis of an internal war for information. There was no information on what platforms’Watch Dogs’ will be released on or when we can expect it to hit the shelves. Both games look great and wether you like one game more than the other is just a matter of preference but keep in mind that ‘The Last Of Us’ is a PS3 exclusive while Ubisoft has yet to announce what platforms ‘Watch Dogs’ will be coming for. Check out the gameplay trailers for both after the break.
At E3 Microsoft announced Xbox SmartGlass, which is sort of their approach to what Nintendo is doing with the Wii U. SmartGlass is an app for tablets and mobile devices that will let users interact and view different content from the videos and games on their console. The app serves as a remote control which lets users to start video content on one SmartGlass device, and seamlessly pick it up on another. The most important feature is how SmartGlass will serve as a secondary screen which will provide additional content related to whatever video or game is playing on the Xbox 360. Microsoft demonstrated the app with a Halo 4 concept which allows players to view their stats, get notified of different waypoints, and initiate multiplayer gaming sessions from the app. It also looks like Microsoft will make the app available for Windows Phone devices as well as iOS and Android. Although, the extended game functionality was specifically noted as being for Windows 8 tablets and Windows Phone devices. No availability date has been given for the app yet.
