Samsung Galaxy S8 versus Apple iPhone 8 is the battle of titans. When Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy S8, it was considered epic. From the specially curved display to its super camera, the S8 has what even a top executive would want in an ultra-modern piece. But now, even before the dust settles, Apple’s flagship iPhone 8 is threatening to relegate Galaxy S8 to the second place. Here is a comparison of the two to establish which one will take the lead.
iPhone 8 is using the latest iOS 11
The unending debate of Android versus iOS appears to be getting even hotter. However, the most recent iOS 11 that iPhone 8 is running on is awesome. iPhone 8 will come with latest upgrades to the Apple Camera, Maps, and Siri. Besides, it also introduced HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Format) that compresses the size of every image you take. This is a great feature that helps to save a lot of space taken by photos. To make iPhone 8 even more personal, Apple added the famous Apple Pay for users to easily transfer cash by simply tapping on the screen. The features do not simply target aesthetics, but to also enhance practicability.
For Samsung Galaxy S8 owners, it appears they might be stuck with Android Naught for longer. Well, this is a little disappointing at a time that Naught has been superseded by Oreo. But it will be months before Android Oreo is ready for S8.
The new iPhone processor is faster
Apple’s thinktank never sleeps. The company takes its time not just to deliver customer satisfaction, but guiding the technology to the next level. The A11 chipset makes the iPhone 8 appear like it is guzzling through treacle. The flagship piece racks up a 8975 multi-core and 4537 single-core that makes the phone really fast. When you compare this to the Samsung Galaxy S8 score for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the iPhone 8 takes a huge lead.
iPhone 8 does not feature a curved display
One of the greatest selling points for Samsung Galaxies is the curved display. It makes the S8 to look glorious as the Infinity display flows very well at the edges. While it was expected that Apple would follow the same route, they took a different one. Though this could be a little disappointing, it is emerging that the curved image is indeed inferiors.
- The curved screen was proved to be prone to damage faster compared to non-curved models.
- During Square Trade drop tests, cracks on the curved display are usually very bad and extend to both front and rear. Such cracks might render the smartphone unusable.
The iPhone 8 display looks like that of iPhone 7. But it introduces OLED displays that allow individual pixels to release own light. This means that the iPhone 8 will not require a backlight to save power. The target was to widen colour gamut and the dynamic range. The focus on screen applicability in iPhone 8 has made the curved model in Galaxy S8 to be seen as if it only targeted appearance.
iPhone 8 heralds the return of dual camera
Just like iPhone 7, the new iPhone 8 comes with a dual-lens camera. This feature allows the user to zoom and even create DSLR-type depth of field (commonly referred as Portrait Model). This has made dual-lens cameras to be considered the best in the market. While this technology is not new in the smartphone world and its superiority is not in doubt, it is unclear why Samsung omitted it in the Galaxy S8. This gives iPhone 8 a great leap ahead at a time when everyone yearns for perfect images.
The launch of iPhone 8 has made Apple usher a new generation of smartphones with a great focus on Augmented Reality Tools and artificial intelligence. This, coupled with the great features outlined above, is likely to give iPhone 8 a better start and raise the chances of edging Galaxy S8 to the second position.
