If single core benchmarks of iphone 8plus almost 2 times higher than of galaxy note 8, then how come most common apps (weather channel , accuwether , all google apps, all transportation apps and WhatsApp and Viber ) all opening with exact same speed of the galaxy note 8? Even couple of apps open by one second faster on note 8.
There was also a test on youtube that showed that one plus 5 outperforms iPhone 8 Plus by an average of 1 sec In opening most apps.
Google chrome is the only app where page load speeds on iPhone are by 2-3 seconds faster than of note 8
Hi! Anyone here who knows or has any idea on when iOS 12 will become available here in the Philippines? TIA
Anonymous, 18 Jun 20188 Plus. Why?
- Secure OS.
- Better gaming (constant 60fps on ANY game, thank Apple later)
-... moreFanboy swill...
iOS is more secure than Android however less than 1% of Android devices get infected. It's not a huge concern for most users.
The A11 Chipset has more raw power at peak performance but after a short period of time with only 3 GB of RAM it bugs down due to RAM Management issues. Antutu Benchmarks are the most inclusive readouts for a gaming environment and the Galaxy's 845 Snapdragon at tops 267,556 tops the A11 at 226,811.
Apple has a better update policy but Android has made progress as well. The Galaxy S9 has had 3 updates since it was introduced which isn't a bad thing. If buyers planned on keeping a device 8 years it might be a valid concern. Most users change devices every 2 to 3 years.
If bezels a so great why is Apple doing all they can to reduce or eliminate them?
16:9 is being phased out in favor of 18:9 and it makes much more sense in larger pixel dense displays. Android devices also have Fit to Screen which eliminates black bars in the 16:9 Aspect Ratio. iPhone 8 is also moving to 18:9.
It has a dual camera about the same as iphone X.
Galaxy S9 Android device is the highest rated camera and with it's Dual Aperture it really crushes lowlight snaps.
Samsung Galaxy S9+ beats iPhone X and Pixel 2 to claim top smartphone camera DxOMark Mobile.
iOS is way better
Depends on many factors including individual preferences. It's surely not better when it comes to flexibility, apps and customization.
Five times more iPhones sold the flagship android devices
Not even close, Android dominates the market with a whopping 87%, while iOS comes at a distant second at 12%
Android's are unusable after 2 years
Completely bogus, many posts in GSM contradict this.
If you buy other Apple device like AirPods or Apple Watch or even Mac you will feel how good those interact.
They may interact well together but only with Apple's proprietary gear and with a slew of adapters, dongles and cables. They want to KEEP YOU in their Ecosystem only to maximize profit.
iPhone 6s Plus from 3 years ago sold for $750 at launch for 16gb option.. go on Ebay, all of them are at least $350 in good condition and the ones in pristine condition are sold for even more.
Forget the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 8 initially released in September, 2017, you can find them on ebay after less than a year on the market for $350.00 and less.

Is that phone still worth buying? What are its cons? & how are the network reception and the call quality on it?
Insert Coin, 16 Jul 2018Thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it!You're welcome!

I also have samsung J7Pro, it's kinda lagging some times and the usual issue with J7Pro is the AMOLED/SCREEN BURN and that i totally disagree that J7Pro is better than iPhone 8 Plus.

It's indeed not completely switched off anymore when you switch it off. I use Force Touch on the Settings icon to quickly go to Bluetooth or Wifi in settings to switch it off. To me, it's a small annoyance, but still they should've kept the toggle functions how it was before imo.
$1000+ for main disadvantages mentioned in gsmArena complete review ! I have to add some more:bezels are getting slowly bigger than the main screen , no USB 3.1 +otg ,no IR and radio +recording rds,no sufficient battery.The Apple iPhones successes mailing depends to other factors of unmentionable here !! But it is important that it is made in China under China telecom system ! Another factor is posing to other people wrongly that only prestigious VIP can have iPhones !!! In my opinion even nowadays that price of J7 pro has gone triples sadly,it is much more better than iPhone 8 plus respectively....Justice Rights moral guidelines just follows justice in writing as gsmArena.Thanks.
I got my iPhone 8 Plus 256 GB last Wednesday 11/07/2018. So far everything is smooth, i'm pretty satisfied with the phone and it's performance in terms of camera, speaker, battery life, optimization of application by it's RAM. Phone design, stainless plus glass is really sexy for me, i loved it! Everything is really running smooth and beautiful! However, i find that when you turn off the mobile data and wifi on the Control Center it doesn't really shut down those functions on the actual phone settings. Any comment about that? Hope to hear from you guys soon. Cheers! :)

iPhone 8 plus few words , performance is insane, SCREEN ON TIME is above 7h of YouTube , reading safari and gaming. IÂ’ m ex user of s7 Edge. Antutu score is 239.000points. This phone is a beast.
I just bought the iphone 8 plus to replace my almost 4 year old 6 plus. I don't know how it is possible but my old phone has better battery life! I thought every iteration of the iphone is supposed to be better than the last. Some advice for apple... I would deal with a thicker phone if it gave me more battery life.
Hi guys! I just got my new device last week. I got question about the battery. I noticed that when i charge the device for example 80% it stays like that an hour or half an hour and then it starts draining a bit fast. Is that normal?
