After this video you should have an insight on which brand will be preferable for use considering the factors of your locality.

The iPhone X which was launched on ….. was a shift  from the paradigm for Apple with the latest masterpiece sporting a completely new design, a massive screen, vastly improved specs and lots of new features.

On another hand, the stunning Samsung Galaxy S8 that hit stores in early this year has earn the Tech world respect.

Putting the two monstrous phones side by side, they both have big screens, great designs and loads of high-tech features – so here’s how the two phones compare.

An obvious difference when viewing the phones front-on however is that the Samsung Galaxy S8’s display curves around the edges, while the iPhone X’s doesn’t.

From the back both phones are plain-looking, with the main component in the Galaxy S8’s case being a single-lens camera and fingerprint scanner while the iPhone X back features a dual-lens camera and both phones displaying company logos on the rear.

Speaking of the durability, both phones are more resilient than they might look, as the Galaxy S8 is IP68-certified, meaning it can be submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes, while the iPhone X is apparently water- and dust-resistant to a ‘microscopic’ level.

Display-wise, both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 have 5.8-inch OLED screens, and both also support HDR content. However, they have different resolutions.

The iPhone X is wired with 2436 x(BY) 1125 for 458 pixels per inch, while the Samsung Galaxy S8’s screen is 1440 x 2960 for 570 pixels per inch, making Samsung’s phone higher in resolution and sharper.

But then again, the iPhone X has a True Tone display, which adjusts the white balance to suit your environment.

Another key difference between them is the amount of storage they have. For the iPhone X you can choose between a 64GB and 256GB.

For the Samsung Galaxy S8 there’s only a 64GB size, but you also get a microSD card slot with support for cards of up to 256GB.

The iPhone X has a 12MP dual-lens camera and a 7MP camera in front. It includes a 3D face scanner, that enables you unlock your phone just by looking at it.

Conversely, The Samsung Galaxy S8 just has a single lens 12MP camera on the back, but there’s also a capable 8MP front-facing camera. It also has a face scanner of its own, though it’s less advanced than Apple’s take, as it only scans a 2D image of your face.

iPhone X’s battery size has a 2,700 milliamp-hour  (mAh), and Apple has said it will last for 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7. It also supports wireless charging, which is a first for an Apple phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 3,000 milliamp-hour (mAh) battery and that too supports wireless charging, as well as fast charging.

Now to the pricing; The iPhone X cost about $1,000/N360, 000 and $1,579/N570, 000 for the 64GB model and will also be available in a 256GB size for $1,149/N414, 000.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 costs $725/N261, 000.

These two great tech masterpieces are more similar than you had expected. But there are still plenty of differences as shown.

As for which is better, well, we’ll leave that to be told by individual taste and preferences.
