Should you, then, plump for an Android? Quite possibly, but this is not without problems of its own.
Android phones can be picked up relatively cheaply and if you go for a high-end model, you can get specs unrivalled by other manufacturers. However its open platform does mean that security can be an issue, something which you will see less of if you go for an iPhone.
March 2017 marked the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, which is rumoured to be the best phone to buy on the market, if you have a spare £689 that is. And while the specs of the S8 aren't actually that dissimilar to its predecessor (which is fantastic), you will receive a better screen and access to Bixby, Samsung's version of Siri or Google Assistant.
Phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge still offer great displays, expandable storage, and compatibility with all USB-powered peripherals. And because it is Android, your device will be customisable, and compatible with Google Docs, as well as all the other Google tools you use such as Analytics, or Google Drive.
