The ultimate versus match is at hand which device is in your corner?

With the world changing to become faster, more streamline and more connected then ever before. The main question comes out, do we really need all that power in a smart phone? does your daily driver really need 8GB of LPDDR4 ram? how much of a gaming experience can we expect from our daily drivers and will smart phones become the next laptop? (If you know the answer to these questions it would be great to hear your opinion in the comments below)

Lets try and answer one question at a time, as most smart phones have high branding reps, for example I have been an apple user since the iPhone 4 and couldn’t really see myself using any other device till I was disappointed with the iPhone X specs and silly animoji experience on an £999 (Premium) phone. I still think the iPhone is the best looking phone on the market but its specs are not as favourable and for my self it, feels like the brand I followed (apple) has lost its way on the innovation side. which made me look into alternative devices on the market. But choosing the right phone when you have been out of the game can be daunting.


So I ask my self a group of questions:

What would I need my daily driver to do?

My main driver has to be able to handle general business tasks : access to multiple Calendars in one location, To Do list, Good Ai. Clear voiced phone calls, Allow me to add multiple email accounts. It must have 4k filming at 60fps or close to 1080p. (Which will help me set scenes for filming projects in the real world, saves me hogging around multiple lens and DSLR bodies) The camera app must open quickly (I have found there is a delay / lag on iOS when looking to film on the fly)


What apps do I need?

I need to be able to run all my social media from a device and not have it crash or bug out on me. As of current it is important to have an expandable memory unit to allow me to store my data on different cards and not fill up my phones memory.


Charging and other wireless actions

This is important as I need to remove the media from my device quickly and clear my phone back up for more filming, and being able to charge my phone faster means less waiting times. or having to charge the phone in a car because the battery is 7%



Based on my requirements this puts the Samsung S8 / Samsung S8+ and Razor phone as my main choices.


I have put together a list of specs to help you compare the best daily drivers on the market in 2017.
