It turns out that for all the care and attention you throw at an expensive modern smartphone, there’s always technological quirks right around the corner to provide free, and endless frustration.
For me, it’s a bug surrounding my Galaxy S7 that prevents cable charging due to a moisture detected message, and the irritation provided knows no bounds. It’s the reason I’ve been eyeing up the Google Pixel 3 as a possible candidate for a new phone, provided the issue doesn’t correct itself or I can’t troubleshoot it into oblivion.
It’s not the only reason the Pixel 3 looks so tempting, others include becoming fed up with the dreaded Samsung lag over time, Samsung’s slow updates, and an interest in experiencing a pure Android experience, or Android’s iPhone as I like to call it.
In the meantime I’ll be making due with wireless charging, and idealizing the perfect scenario for Google’s upcoming flagship.
