Perfect phone for me. Iphone 8+ too cumbersome and I don't care for the Iphone X notch & lack of touch ID.

Apple admitted that their devices slow down in performance so the battery lasts at an optimum level. Hoped it help!
Ken, 31 Dec 2017Apple slows down?????? I donÂ’t think so......

Anonymous, 01 Jan 2018Your last sentence doesnÂ‘t really add up for me. If you look at how long the phone will last,... moreIÂ’m glad you atleast partly agree with me. I try to be objective as much as I can, because a good phone is a good phone. In my opinion, itÂ’s kinda more of personal taste what will suit you better.
ItÂ’s almoust 100% sure that whether you choose iPhone8 or S8 - you will be satisfyed by your phone.
I agree with what you stated why iPhone does hold greater value. Just Apple is slowing down phones with years, as battery degrades... you will either lose performance, or you will have to change itÂ’s battery. And thatÂ’s the biggest part why IÂ’m really glad I picked S8.
TheLostWanderer, 30 Dec 2017I had dilemma between iPhone8 and Galaxy S8... what to buy?
I got the Galaxy S8 and I didn't ... moreYour last sentence doesnÂ‘t really add up for me. If you look at how long the phone will last, IÂ‘m sure, because of the higher benchmarks but also the software support, that the iPhone 8 will be better. Right now, the S8 is probably better because the iPhone 8 was a really minor upgrade but came in at a higher price, all because the iPhone X is now their best phone. ItÂ‘s like the Samsung MU 8000 TV series from Samsung, which is the successor to the KS 8000 which was much better. If Apple wants to save this phone, they have to reduce the price dramatically, so that it sits right above the iPhone 7, maybe a Â€50 difference.
So I think today, the S8 is the better phone and got much more value for money. But after 3 or 4 years, an iPhone will always win. Even the 7 will be better, because of the iPhoneÂ‘s longevity, you unfortunately also have to pay for.
I hope I didnÂ’t sound like a fanboy because I always try to be fair and such. I think you were really fair with a big part your statement, and this has become uncommon on this website.

Are you still going to say Apple doesnÂ’t slow down anything?

I had dilemma between iPhone8 and Galaxy S8... what to buy?
I got the Galaxy S8 and I didn't regret it.
I chose better screen, good battery, headphone jack and other features over benchmark performance. I know iPhone is incredibly fast, just I don't need that, and I don't use my phone for stuff like gaming. But I do need features, and infinity display, battery and headphone jack. Now, hearing that Apple slows down older phones - I'm really glad I got the S8. It's much better in the long run.
AnonD-726288, 26 Dec 2017Definitly iphone 8Well... iPhone is nice, but S8 is S8...
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2017Iphone is iphone..apple is apple..as simple as that..What does this mean?
kevin, 22 Nov 2017Iphone 7(1960mAh) battery is last longer than Iphone 8 (1821mAh)This is totally wrong since they use A11 Bionic chip's on iphone 8 which helps iphone 8 battery last longer.
Barok, 19 Dec 2017Just upgraded from nokia 5110. This is great!Iphone is iphone..apple is apple..as simple as that..
AnonD-649506, 17 Dec 2017Space grey if male, gold if girly.Stupid macho idea.
People buy the colour they like more.
I hate gold or white phones, but my friend (a man) prefers gold or rose gold iPhones.
All my iPhones have been space grey, the only colour that doesn't make them look cheap (see? this is my opinion only, not trying to influence anyone).
