Trying out the Samsung S8 with Carphone Warehouse

Dear iPhone,

This is the hardest letter I have ever written, and I know you may hate me for this, but when we first met, I promised you that there would be no secrets between us.
Over the last two years, you have seen me at my best and you have seen me at my worst, (Forward facing camera from a low angle) and you have always been there for me.

Dearest iPhone, I fear that I may be about to cheat on you with a younger model. I have had my head turned by something exciting and new, and I fear that this could be the beginning of the end for us.

I have only met this model once, I wish I could say it was a chance meeting, but I was asked to go and met them, and, oh god, I am sorry, I was weak. In the heat of the moment, and with the offer of some food and alcohol, I readily agreed to go to meet them at The Alchemist in Leeds. I promise you, it was not a date. There were lots of people there, it wasn't an intimate thing between the two of us.

But I met this new model, you may have heard of it, it is the Samsung S8, and I was tempted. If I am honest, I am STILL tempted.

It isn't you, it is me. You have never let me down, even though we do have a bit of a battery issue, but we get through that by me carrying a battery pack everywhere and a spare lead, THAT is what a good team does for each other.

But this new model, phew, it has taken my breath away. You should see it, it is breathtaking. The smooth curves, the glossy finish, the 8MP front camera and the 12mp rear camera, as well as the 4K video recording, it just gives me something that I never knew was missing in our relationship.

I don't want to make comparisons between you but let us do just that.

I do not mean to be unkind, but I have certain needs, and the Samsung S8 meets those photographic needs a lot more than you ever can I fear.

I was with friends when I met the new model, and all of them agreed that the Samsung S8 would make an excellent partner. We are all bloggers and if we concentrate on our photographic needs, then I am sorry, but S8 knocks it out of the park.

Can YOU add stickers to photos like this?

We both know that you can't.

Please do not beg, I am confused right now, I don't know what I want. You bring me so much joy with your Apple ways and we have been together for so long, I don't know if the Samsung S8 and I are compatible, I don't know if I could live with her Android ways after being nestled in the Apple Ecosystem for so long. I don't know if I am too old to try something new. But I can see my little face just lit up when I saw all the things that the S8 can do and I am not sure if we should have a break, just so I can see if myself and the Samsung S8 can make a real go of it.

Dear iPhone, I think I may be breaking up with you, I just don't know if you can fulfil my needs in the same way that the Samsung can.

I am sorry.

Much Love,

Ok, help me out here guys, what are your thoughts on this, I love my iPhone and everything it brings me but the Samsung S8 is superb, I loved trying it out. It is probably the only phone out there that could make me leave my Apple bubble. Who else has made the swap?

Let me know.

Small print, this post is part of a challenge to have the opportunity to take home a new Samsung phone. So SHOW ME SOME LOVE and comments, please.



  1. I totally love my samsung (S6) and can't wait to get my hands on the S8 next year when I'm due an upgrade. Don't think about it, just follow your photo loving heart 😁

    1. It's the operating system that I worry about. I love Safari and the whole apple eco system. Based on the photography side of things. I would get this phone in a heartbeat

  2. Break ups are tough, but I genuinely believe that you're making the right decision. Welcome to the Samsung family, we're way more fun. xxx

  3. This cracked me up!!
    Photo quality looks great, I just can't get on with the operating system. I sold my last Samsung as it made me so mad. I think I've been brainwashed my Apple somehow.
    They should combine and make the best phone ever!!

  4. PAH! Girl forget that iPhone. Android phones for the win! This puts the iPhone to shame, I wish it were Xmas because the S8 is top of my want list. Just look at those images. Game changer. Using a retina scanner to unlock your phone? Just call me James Bond. I hope you get it!
