Apple iPhone x vs Samsung Note 8 and why Note 8 is better. NO SD card or headphone jack on iPhones. I use my 256GB sd card to store my pics and 64GB for operating systema nd aps. Iphone does not have that. I also listen to music ALL the time and the free AKG (absolutely amazing quality headphones) in the box were a very pleasant surprise!
Price difference... both phones are expensive but the iPhone was 150 Euros more.
Smaller display and lower resolution on the Apple phone.
Rated talking time on Samsung is higher 22 hours vs the Apples 14 hours.
Glass on display. Samsung has the award winning gorilla glass 5 (maybe 6 dunno from memory).. and the Apple phone is listed as 'scratch resistant glass' What does that even mean? It means to me expensive replacement glass once it breaks.
The only thing that Apple has going for it is the Apple A11 Bionic vs Exynos 8895 Octa and after 2 weeks with my Note 8 I can say I have had ZERO delay in almost every game or App that I have used... so that combined with ALL of the of the feature differences have convinced me to stop buying Apple phones.
I had both phones side by side and played with them for a good 5 hours. I found that after installing a ton of aps on the iPhone the speed slowed down. I can only guess that this is because of the lower memory (3GB compared to Samsungs 6GB). I am writing this on my Note 8 and am happy with my decision.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2017An i7 4490k sometimes struggles a bit with that game*that at 1080p at highest settings paired ... moredo you remember nvidia shield tv conference?:)) Nvidia showed tegra x1 device runnning crysis 3 and i am sure that a11 2-3 times faster than tegra x1..so definitely mid settings should be ok:)
kammem2, 15 Sep 2017now i can run crysis 3 on my iphone X:)No you cant.
your iphone will die if you try to run a real high end computer game.
Probably will have to wait till SD855 to beat A11
AnonD-511284, 19 Sep 2017Yah maybe you can crush android with big numbers like that but it still can not change that ap... moreI think your confuse with android and apple, iphone 5s is still supported with ios 11 while android has only 2 year OS support on nexus/pixel phones
AnonD-646111, 16 Sep 2017No matter which snapdragons version it may be these A11 chip is the fastest phone on a planet ... moreI think Nvidia Tegra Xavier with Volta GPU will beat Apple A11 as in single core as in multi core and in GPU.
AnonD-646111, 16 Sep 2017No matter which snapdragons version it may be these A11 chip is the fastest phone on a planet ... moreIn multi core? We will see next year with the 845. I bet that if the Apple A11 now get 10000 pts in multi core probably the 845 will get 11000 or more. In single core the Apple A11 is unbeatable while Qualcomm an Samsung don't make a change in their customization, Apple will be always unbeatable in single core.
What are the effects on battery life and thermal build up?
Can the A11 sustain this performance for a long period of time in the iphone x?
Yah maybe you can crush android with big numbers like that but it still can not change that apple only support for the next 2 year , funny jokes lol.
Meme, 16 Sep 2017Holy crap someone is actually has the same thinking as me.Well, unlike fanboys, we're not bias. I own an S8+ and fanboys be like "OMG best phone in like ever! Better than iPhones goobledygook!" I'm like UI sucks, slower SD835, hard bloatware bixby buttone, too much crap etc. But i like the design and get's the job done.
AnonD-1825, 16 Sep 2017Keep dreaming https://youtu.be/vMiTOKKX7ek in reality year old 7 plus already crushed competition.need I show browser centric benchmark where Sony wins? ( Tann does That, I don't want to do it) or day to day opening task test where all phones are almost at par? We don't need such processing power right now, unless you talking about gaming on these tiny screens. All that GHz and MHz yet will open calculator same as a 100$ phone. They don't mean anything as long as phone is smooth which I know iPhone is. What's the bragging about?
so what? Every phone can play games, use facebook, anything you can install from the store. What the point having faster CPU. iPhone is iPhone, Android is Android. Does not make any sense to compare. The real issue is what you got is no more. Like fingerprint. You will say better face recognization. Every time you unlock your phone, just put your thumb or index finger. This is a real waiting time then your super fast iPhone X. You need to wait for a few seconds to unlock. For android phone, your finger will unlock before your phone reach in front of your face every single time you pick up. So, see what make you slow. what says you if you are using in dark places.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2017Who cares? The only people who will buy it are the ones locked into their ecosystem. Everyone ... moreyou're so wrong lol xD all my dev friends changed to iOS, including myself will change to iPhone because of tech reasons (iOS > 'droid)
so what? even if its 10000000x better it will remain overpriced. unles i can plug a phone to a big screen + keyboard and run some serious software/games (PC type) on it a phone will never be worth more than 700 usd to me
Of course it's going to be faster. It's running software that looks like it hasn't changed in 10 years.
Who cares? The only people who will buy it are the ones locked into their ecosystem. Everyone else knows better.
