Apple iPhone 8 v Galaxy S8

Going by a listing on Tenaa, the iPhone 8 is fitted with a 1821mAh battery which comes as surprise, given its small size when compared to the 1960mAh battery offered on the iPhone 7. The cost for the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus with 64 gigabyte memory came in at $288.08, around $10 higher than the $277.66 cost of the iPhone 7 Plus. At a retail price of $699, Apple is making a profit of $451.49 on the sale of each unit before additional costs like assembly are factored in. Plus, as long as the iPhone retains its tech je ne sais quois, you'll be paying a zeitgeist premium for it. One of should be aware of the fact that it does not include other expenses such as manufacturing, software and R&D.

Apple introduced facial recognition to unlock phones and for users to authenticate payments on their handsets for the first time with iPhone X. The new function is not available on the lower-priced iPhone 8 range.

"The added value went to memory, camera, and processing". After all, a phone with a depleted battery is a useless one. Moreover, it is expected that iPhone X pre-orders will set a new overall record including other smartphone makers. The Cupertino company has spent $32.50 on its enhanced camera system. Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now being shipped from Pennsylvania.

Anticipation for the iPhone X has still been high, even before it was formally announced. The screen has a super retina display with OLED technology.

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are all equipped with a glass sheet on the back panel to accommodate the inductive wireless charging. The screen and the glass on the backside of the phone are both much more durable and less likely to scratch and crack, which is a development that was needed years ago.

However, in another popular smartphone performance test, AnTuTu, the iPhone 8 Plus achieves a graphics sub-score of 73,022, up about 30% from the 56,031 my iPhone 7 Plus achieves.

The story is similar with the iPhone 8 Plus. According to prevalent industry standards this is considered respectable.
