My trusty Galaxy S4 on Verizon is dying and I need an upgrade. I am going to skip past buying a used S5 like I had planned because well I just want something new once in a while. I am looking at both the S8+ and the Pixel XL. For what I do the hardware on each should suit me just fine, however there are some pros and cons for each. S8+ pros for me; Water resistant Micro SD slot for expanded memory Cons; Screen size is odd curved glass (I hate the curved glass) Bloatware lack up timely software updates Pixel XL Pros; better size for me than the S8+ timely software updates Less bloat pre installed Cons; No memory expansion no water resistance I was wondering if others who have weighed the same issues as I have could chime in with their reasoning as well. In the past I have destroyed several phones due to water damage. once was while washing dishes and once was a freak thing where I had to make a sudden stop on the highway and my phone slid from it's spot in my old vehicle right into a full cup of ice water without a lid on it. With my current S4 I can disable some of the bloat but canot delete the stuff. Does the Pixel do a better job of containing the crap they force on you? Thanks in advance.
