I really really want to try one of these other non iphones because I hear so many people talk about the camera capability. I get so frustrated with my iPhone and Apple products but it really is like a drug. It's not so much that I am a fan boy of Apple because I'm definitely not (I use Windows still) but the addiction with the iphone is so strong I can't imagine switching systems. Apple TV and Facetime make it so hard to ever want to think about leaving. That being said, this S23 looks pretty slick. Maybe one day I'll at least buy one and try it for the return period.
