iOS vs Android. For nearly a decade the rivalry of these two lineups has spun a trend of love and hate that even we have a hard time controlling in the comments. Surely one is the misunderstood iPhone, and the other is the Galaxy on its way out, but smaller price on one and deals on the other make this a worthy comaprison none the less. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow and this is iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8

Both phones are ridiculously expensive but in long term you get more value from iPhone if you are like me who uses for 2 years and sells your phone. IPhone is simple to use and has it's own ecosystem. Whereas samsung uses android which can be found in many other android phones. If you want more flexibility, more third party apps and open os then go for samsung, if you want better user experience, no third party apps and better investment then go for iphone. I have used both phones and like both os. Although iPhone has limited os it gives you simple and effective user experience not found in other phones. I got more than half the value after reselling iPhone whereas less than half from samsung so decided to give it to my brother. More brands have good marketing strategy and they charge a lot which can't be changed due to demand of consumers like us. In the end we have to buy any of these devices.
I have a S8 and love it. When I went back to my iPhone 5S to clear it out to sell it, the OS gave me so much shit. It was terrible and messy and the lack of features honestly confused me, especially compared to the Galaxy S5.
Both are amazing phones I have both the S8 looks better and I can customize to my heart's content but as far as solid dependable and speed iPhone 8 is amazing both have awesome cameras you can't go wrong with either one
Yeah, let’s recommend a $700 phone that’ll last 3 years and then will never get an update. iOS all the way, a phone that actually works for long term rather than paying for a blotchy software experience.
I really want to love my S8. The only thing that bugs me is the horrible battery problem I got with the new Oreo update on my S8. It shouldnt be there and its annoying as hell. It has only affected a small bunch, so I'm only hoping for an update to fix it. Other than that, great phone.
Samsung: we got more futuristic phones they don't look always the same as Apple!
Apple: catch this! Throws iPhone X !
Fans: the phone that looked the same is now completely different and Samsung is trying to catch up by stealing some parts of their design but it's still mission impossible maybe they should sell them fake OLED displays maybe make them burn just like Samsungs battery does :(
Samsung S8 is so defective it's not funny. I have gone thru three S8 within a period of 2 weeks. Yes you've read it correct. The S8 is full of not charging issues while continued to get the run around from both Xfinity and Samsung. Currently I am without a phone since the 3rd S8 have been sent to Samsung for repair and it's been more than a week. You figure out what this means and can do to you if your business is dependent on communication. Anyways, I would love to drop the S8 for IPhone if I were not locked since I had to buy a new phone with Xfinity in the beginning which is another B.S. Samsung customer service is nothing but worthless which I've discovered the hard way.
Sold my 7 plus and bought S9 plus. Never regret since then. I really hate that apple slowing down their phone when battery is bad. Iphone's battery reduced to 20% after 1.5 years, while samsung just reduce 5% over 2 years..i use smartphone for work. For me IOS is really complicated when you want to share some documents, meanwhile on andriod just using cable/bluetooth and transfer it. IOS is just for someone who want to show off paying thousands for somehing that cannot escape from its wall garden. Really funny when someone use iphone, but dont have any macs, update? Just relies on OTA instead of download full firmware which is much better. For me andriod is much useful because it has true multitasking, i can text my workes while viewing building floor plan, 2 apps at one time, back then i need to back and forth in order to do both tasks, no longer doing that stupid move again. Apple should implement that on X! It has almost 2K resolution on iphone. I dont want to carry an ipad just for works, thats nonsense. Futhermore i can charge my battery faster than iphone, without spend more money to buy large brick of adapater. Apple really2 want you to spend more, foolish moves by Tim Cook! Not to mention IOS 11 buggy update, need to wait for several updates to fix but the newest one has bugs too. An Apple with full of worms. We dont should call a bug on apple devices as 'bug' but a worm. IDK what Tim Cook is doing, release as much as iphones that he could.
Apple used to releasr one device, and the device nailed every andriod. Now? Yikes! So many to choose from just like andriod, and almost same functions. We need iphone to have some andriod features like split screen, fast charging right out of the box with fast charger, more battery capacity so that the iphone stay much longer. I dont need a fancy and eye candy animoji, thats stupid! I dont use AR emoji as well. I need a phone that truly suits me.
Tim cook should step down as apple's ceo. He just like former microsoft ceo, steve ballmer. If apple want more money, please put more battery on it. Why? Because people need to use an iphone longer!! If an iphone can last longer almost 2 days with medium usage just take my money, i use apple. Same goes to the battery degrade, apple has so muchh money, but why samsung has 1-2 years lead in battery degrade? It learned a lesson from note 7. Apple should doing the same thing rather than put something useless. If i were apple's ceo, i will put 4000mah with great software optimization so that iphone users will able to use their phone longer and no need to charge their phone regularly. Very useful for frequent traveler like me. This is just crazy tim cook that he dont want to use some resources to improve battery life, just improve the processor power consumption.. if apple increase the battery capacity thats would be really great. Apple is the company, tim cook is the worm inside Apple. Really sad this gay 'anal' the company
the S8 camera(s) look bad but it's improved drastically over time it's so sharp and I think the front camera on the S8 has OIS as you can see in this video even though Samsung doesn't tell you in the S* specs or reviews. but in a Jerry-rigged tear down you can see it has OIS. anyways the camera(s) looks way better now.
Apple is POOP!!!!! ;)
Ohh gosh iPhone is always funny , they try to beat Samsung's technology they could not even make their own display, so Samsung share an Oled display to iPhone x, not like sa Samsung Super Amoled, so sad iPhone, need to stop assuming! lol hahahahah
My choice is ios over android. Android developers don't care about giving a good experience, a example is bowsmaster that have online mode on iOS since 2 years ago, and android still don't have this feature.
I’ve had my s8 for a few days after being lucky enough to receive it (brand new) from Asurion because my s7 edge battery started expanding. I didn’t think it would be so much different from my s7, but it really is. It’s a beautiful phone and everything about it is better.
Haha I switched for operating system :'D Android just wasn't on the same level of the iPhones and the Snapdragon 821 still ist very slow in comparison to my "new" old iPhone SE
Besides, as someone who does journalistic things, you have no option but Android because there coding is secure from bottom up, swell as hardware security
Why did no one ever say something like thatP?
Also: My Macbook works better with my iPhone
It works even better with android than windows and android, but thats besides the point
