Since I've saved $2,000 since last year. I'm planning to get both.
kerginaldo17, 06 Nov 2017Smartphone with horns and very ugly.Waiting the next bizarre from Apple They worship the devil!
IPhone X is an unfinished phone. Now Apple is warning everyone about the downsides of OLED display (burn in, deterioration in picture quality over time.. Even Forbes is reporting about the shifts in color and hue depending on viewing angles), users are reporting shattered glass all over the internet (replacement glass costs USD 500+.. seriously), apps don't necessarily fit the full screen (incl. Netflix), Face ID doesn't always work and can be tricked, not even the battery percentage shows on the main screen, no headphone jack (obviously!).. All for USD/GBP 999! For the basic model.. Why?? More like wtf! All this for the novelty of Face ID and showing off the ownership of the latest iPhone? I absolutely PASS... There is so much better out there for literally HALF the price. Brainwashing at its finest.....

Both make quality products, both have great unique factors, both have great specs and features. I dont get why people have to make it so one has to be superiorxD

It has infinity display it is almost same size as iPhone 8 Plus, very expensive??? Last time I checked, iPhone x considered most expensive phone ever :) few people buying it???? Last time i checked it sold already 1 million only in Korea :) your comment already does not make any sense since beginning. Note 8 camera is amazing, maybe little bit worse than IPhone X, but nevertheless it is best in class with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, so definitely camera is not a major factor just to get iPhone X. Android not future proof???? :D you right most of the android phone get 2 year period for major upgrades, but font forget it is open source platform, you can upgrade your phone with custom roms even after 5 years or more and you will always get top features from OS, you clearly don't have a clue about Android phones, cause maybe you never had one, and you says no one buys Android??? It is most popular mobile OS in a world :)
Played with the X in Apple Store and what a display. Turn on True Tone and it just looks right. I have played with Note 8 before but X's screen feel far more clear and pleasant
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 06 Nov 2017So even up to now.

Just like Apple owns the ecosystem, Samsung has its own ecosystem built on Android. They probably little behind Apple in Software updates in terms of latest greatest version, but Android users hardly complain. They just need Software support if there are security issues which is sort of taken care by both Google and Samsung through monthly security patches
Note 8, 05 Nov 2017#2 Samsung do not manage base OS or its partnered developers, it is Google that manages them. ... moreSo even up to now. How google manage the note 8 in terms of laggy touchwiz UI, late or even no OS updates, and even release an optimized app for a specific samsung phone? And just like what you've said. It is entirely dependent on google. So if it doesn't have a demo app. It doesn't have it! When a new galaxy device is introduced to the public.
"Unlike Apple Samsung has been very smart in its distribution without compromising quality". Then why the note 7 battery explodes?
leo R, 06 Nov 2017If I can get unlocked galaxy S8+ for $300, I'll buy 100. Just give me link or store location.DUDE! It's on EBAY! Problem is. It's a loosin fight! Here are some of those links:
I tried to find that $300 samsung galaxy s8. But it was removed from ebay.
Anonymous, 06 Nov 20171.The emperor edition still exists. And obviously the difference is expandable storage. Which ... more1. Did I deny that it doesn't exist? I said "Sold in limited countries"! Majority of samsung stores anywhere in the world is selling 64GB storage. So you got a note 8 emperor edition. Can anyone get the 256GB emperor edition. Unlike the iphone, which is selling 256GB anywhere in the world?
2. LOL! This proves that you don't watch samsung announcements! For all samsung galaxy phones and note announcements. All of them only showcase the specs, the software, and even the camera. So tell me. When samsung introduce GEAR VR. Like in this video:
Did they have a working VR APP for the GEAR VR? NO.
3. Loudness wise. Have you compare the old iphones from the same samsung phones that was released in the same year?
Does all samsung tablets have stereo speakers. And is available worldwide? Here in my country. The only samsung stereo tablets is the galaxy tab s3. Others are generic speakers. You don't believe that the iphone 7 and 7 plus have triple speaker? Have you even tried using it?
4. "Samsung and most other Android devices have that too". Then where is it? Where's your proof that the android has 64 bit apps that is running on full 64 bit? When the OS itself is 32 bit?
"And rooting has nothing to do with that". FYI, did you know that you can root your phone so that you could install custom roms?
5. Samsung has a lot of third party accessories all over the world too! LOL! Can you buy samsung accessories in europe?
6. Like that was the worst on iphone! Unlike samsung, laggy touchwiz, black spots on the edge display, screen burn in, lack of OS update(Some are very late), exploding note smartphones, note 7 owners not allowed to fly anywhere in the world??? Which one do you think is the worst?
7. And does resell price value have to dropped too much? Look at ebay:
You think I have no definite proof? These two link proves my claims. How about you? Have you look at the latest iphone 6s or 7 refurbished value? In a span of 1 year. Have you seen an iphone price drastically dropped to $300 for 1 year?
Yes, some of the updates have bugs in it. But it takes weeks to get a fixed update. Unlike most android device which get's slow updates. Now if you're wondering. How come the android number 4 update has the most update of all starting from 4.0 to 4.4.2? How come the next gen have only 0 to .1 update?
"had about a 5 or more year world lead in app crashes by a dramatic margin.". That's app problem. Not apple's fault. Why blame apple if the source of the problem is the developer? If the app has no updates at all for the latest device. Do you know that it will crash? This also goes for android. For example. If the app was developed entirely for gingerbread. And you are using a nougat smartphone. Will the app work without any problems at all?
Meanwhile, since from the old android. Why do you think that most android users need to use cleaning apps like Ccleaner, cleanmaster, and such?
FYI, I have an iphone 5s, and an ipad mini 2. Both are running on ios 11. Ever since the update. I didn't even encounter a slight bug error on my ios device. This proves that you base on your opinion according to some rumors. People like you only likes to spread false propaganda. This is the reason why your comments are full of garbage cause you can't even afford an iphone. Which is the truth?

Just select it from the 3 choices suggested by Swiftkey assuming it's your favorite website.
"by the time we're on the homescreen on the X, we could've typed in gsmarena.com in Safari on the 8 Plus"
Gsmarena, I guess you overreact a little, just be honest!
Nobody can open Safari and write gsmarena.com in half a second.
Let's be serious!

Is that and the ability to send animojis the reason why the iPhone X is deserving of a $1,000+++ price tag?
Loepoes, 05 Nov 2017Secretly laughing= being extremely jealous!Nah they'll be secretly laughing coz those i people would be holding the phone wrong for face ID to not work
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 05 Nov 2017Want to clarify?
1. 128, 256, and 512gb internal storage is available on apple store all ove... more1.The emperor edition still exists. And obviously the difference is expandable storage. Which Samsung constantly is offering in promotions. Like I got a free $250 256GB 90mbs one. And with the Note8 they were also offering a 128GB for free.
2.Just because Samsung specifically doesnt make all the apps doesnt mean anything. They have plenty of apps and support. And there are many others for the OS. Thats not even reliant on just Samsung and trying to twist it to be so is just bias misinforming.
3.Almost all iPhones in fact do not have stereo quality. How does the 7 and up mean all??? LOLOLOL. And what does the iPad speakers have to do with phones??? Or it's display have to do with speakers?
And like you said some of Samsungs tablets have stereo speakers too. And Oled displays which still look better than the 120hz LCD on iPad.And triple speaker?? LOL come on.
4.When it comes to updates apple is just playing catch up. 64bit OS and apps??? Samsung and most other Android devices have that too. What kind of point was that???
And yes. Apple offers updates for longer. But only because their updates are far less comprehensive and playing catch up to things the samsung device had that 2 or 4 years ago from the beginning.
And rooting has nothing to do with that. Entirely different subject. You really seem to enjoy adding random unrelated things in that have absolutely no wright to your claims. Yet you actually think they do.
5.Samsung has a lot of third party accessories all over the world too. What do their lower end devices have to do with that?? And low and low quality are not the same thing. Just like apple shows us high and high quality are not always the same thing.
6.LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!! Righ. Like bendgate and touch disease as a result of bendgate. Or each iOS release that is laggy, glitchy, and bug ridden????
That's a good joke.
7.Again you are mixing quality with something entirely separate. The price of most devices dropping is completely irrelevant of quality. That's called resell value. Not quality... Completely different. And S8 for $300? LMAO! I love how you just make up whatever you want to make your own claims sound legit to yourself LOL.
The real question is. When apple and their customers all claim that iOS is far more advanced and the reason why its ok for them to charge more for less. And that the reason they make less devices and work on the hardware and software themselves is because they can supremely optimize it all. And again this supposed quality is why they can charge ridiculous prices....But it lags anyway. And they release such half baked buggy updates that take weeks of bug fixing... And even had about a 5 or more year world lead in app crashes by a dramatic margin....Do you think apple cares that its them being sloppy greedy and lazy??? Nope. Because millions of people like yourself will just blindly accept it, deny it, and defend it.
