Basically I love customizable phones. Thats the one and only reason I'm nt going for iphones. Iphone have unique performance and design which cannot be compared with other devices.
Samsung are upgraded ones unlike Samsung, iphones r nt upgraded in tech.
If iphones have bettr battery life, advanced tech, large display and also with beautiful design, then no doubt, no ones go for other fones.
I'm confused for chosen of Between I7+ and S8+ which one is better for buy?Pls give an advice thank you.
Samsung, LG concerned by Apple's plans to replace OLED with micro-LED in 2017 Apple Watch 3, later iPhones

Later this year, Apple is expected to begin production of its advanced new power-efficient display technology known as micro-LED, which is expected to initially be used to replace OLED in Apple Watch Series 3. The shift is part of a series of moves that is concerning Samsung, LG and other South Korean suppliers.
A recent report from Business Korea notes that Apple has been working with LuxVue (which it acquired in 2014) to develop new micro-LED screen production in the two years since the technology began gaining public attention in the summer of 2015.
Micro-LED was called "the only potentially disruptive technology" in an industry trade show at the time, as reported by Ken Werner of Display Daily in interviewing Candice Brown-Elliott, the creator of the Pentile Matrix pixel configuration used in Samsung OLED panels.
Werner added that "just as remarkable as this technology's potentially transformative nature is that micro LEDs (or microscale LEDs or µ-ILEDs) were not well known outside of the relatively small community of people who work on them before Apple acquired LuxVue last year, at which point a much wider community started scrambling to learn about them."
This February, Apple was granted patents related to LuxVue and micro-LED, specifically detailing the inclusion of sensing Infrared diodes with the ability to read fingerprints on the surface of the display, a technology that would enable incorporating Touch ID functionality into the screen itself.
Rumored iPhone 8 designs later this year are expected to use similar technologyÂ—or potentially a glass surface that acts as a lens to refract fingerprint images through a display to an optical sensor below itÂ—to erase the need for a dedicated Touch ID sensor on the front bezel of future iPhones. However, the technology also conceptually enables the prospect of future Apple Watch models gaining the ability to read fingerprints on its screen.
The difficulty of producing micro-LED panels indicates that the new technology isn't yet capable of yielding large screen iPhone displays, but could get there over the next couple years. That makes Apple Watch a more ideal candidate for pioneering adoption of micro-LED, something that was already being rumored last summer.
The potential use of micro-LED in Apple Watch 3 would help fund and perfect the production of larger micro-LED screens suitable for use in iPhones, meaning that Apple's expected use of Samsung OLED screens for a new iPhone model this year may only be temporary.
Further, even before Apple moves away from OLED, it's likely to switch from Samsung OLEDs to OLED production from China, Business Korea stated. In addition to the loss of a billion dollars worth of OLED screens, Samsung and LG are also increasingly concerned that Apple will start sourcing its RAM and cameras elsewhere, too.
Apple is reportedly in talks to acquire Toshiba's memory business for itself, ending nearly two decades of being among Samsung's largest RAM customers.
Business Korea stated that Apple's increasing efforts to develop its own components and diversify suppliers would have a serious impact on the nation's industry. Apple current buys $2.63 billion in components from South Korea, but the country's "prosperity from Apple is highly likely to end in two to three years," in large part due to competition from China in semiconductors and displays.
FrameRate, 26 Apr 2017Someone is selling an iphone7 plus here for only $150. Lol. But its only a premium copy. Wonde... moreI wouldn't buy it. You'll get a wrong opinion about iPhones even though you didn't get the real deal. For that money, you can start with a used iPhone 5s :)
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2017Of course... Since first iPhone... Actually, there are not many things changed outside... S... moreI have a SGS7 Edge and it looks indeed slick, but ergonomics wise, it is a nightmare. Keeping the curved edge on SGS8 is the way for something to get burned again.

Anonymous, 25 Apr 2017Exactly i phone 7 plus is extraordinary device.Of course...
Since first iPhone...
Actually, there are not many things changed outside...
Still same ugly design all 10 years...
Look at Samsung Galaxy models...
There are no equal to S6/S7/S8 models, excellent and brand new designs on each phone.
But every iPhone, tiny bit different than previous model.
And I still remember when Apple calls big phones are ugly and not necessary...
So kind of turning back, while forgetting the past.
Not only master thief Apple must be, also a good liar.
Syed Jarif, 23 Apr 2017Thanks. Anyone tested iPhone 7+ in water???Exactly i phone 7 plus is extraordinary device.
A014K, 23 Feb 2017Hi All, I am using Moto G2 as of now and have bought Iphone 7 plus. Do i need to get a new... moreThe same sim card can be cut and used. Check if ur sim is 4G compliant if u r planning to use 4g
Syed Jarif, 22 Apr 2017Is iPhone 7+ water proof???In the world of electronics there is no such thing as water "proof" devices can be made water resistant up to certain degree and the iphone 7 is rated IP57 which means it should be ok with light splashes.
