With the introduction of iPhone 8 in the market, the classic battle of Apple vs. Android is all set to confuse the people. Well, of course, Apple users will say that the new iPhone 8s is the best flagship of all the time, while on the other hand, the Samsung nerds will agree that the iPhone 8 can still not beat the Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship.
Well, who is the boss of the smartphone this year? iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S8? Let’s find out in the side by side comparison of the features and looks of both the phones.
Apple iPhone 8 vs. Samsung Galaxy S8 – The Ultimate Face-Off
Without any further ado, let’s see how the two biggest flagships of the year compare:
1: Display and Design
Although Apple is trying to change and bring something new to the display of their phones, but not much has changed in the iPhone 8 flagship. The phone rather borrows the design from iPhone 6 with an LCD display of 1,334 × 750-pixel resolution that however, comes close to the Super AMOLED display with 2,960 x 1,440-pixels on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Samsung Galaxy S8 features the glass front and black along with the aluminum frame on its 5.7 inches bezel-less display, while iPhone 8 features the glass body for the first time with the steel frame on the bezel-less and button-less display of 4.7 inches. Yep, Samsung Galaxy S8 has got the bigger size, but not too big to hold.
Samsung has equipped its latest flagship with the Snapdragon 835 processor (Exynos 8895 in Europe) along with 4GB RAM, while the Apple users have got the A11 Bionic chip in their new iPhone 8 with 3GB RAM.
Based on the performance test, iPhone 8 has got the edge because it is reported that A11 is the fastest chipset ever introduced in any smartphone.
3: Battery Life and Charging
Although Samsung has been introduced the fast charging technology for many years in their phones, Apple is kind of new in this domain. iPhone 8 has a battery capacity of 1821 mAh, that is too low as compared to the Samsung Galaxy S8’s battery capacity, which is 3,000mAh. Both the phones offer the wireless charging support.
Well, you might be thinking that you have got a winner here because Apple has long been the only platform offering the best cameras in its flagships. But you are probably wrong this time. Although iPhone 8 boasts a powerful camera with 12-megapixel sensor, Samsung Galaxy S8 has also got the same, giving a tough competition to Apple’s new flagship.
Samsung overall offers the great results in the low-light situation, but Apple does not lag behind as well. It also offers the overall best picture quality, continuing the legacy of Apple’s cameras.
5: Pricing and Availability
Both the phones are easily available in the market, but unfortunately, neither of them comes with a cheap price tag. Samsung Galaxy S8 carries a price range of $750 to $800, while its competitor has got the price range of around $699 to $850.
