Both Samsung and Apple launched their flash ship models in 2018, and they did create a lot of buzz. At the time of the release, Samsung was struggling to maintain its reputation because the Samsung Note 7 caused a lot of damage to Samsung as a reliable mobile phone manufacturer whereas Apple was also busy getting out of the controversy iPhone 7 generated by eliminating 3.5 headphone jack. But both came with the blast as far as the performance is concerned. Both Mobile phones at the time of their launch were being sold at almost the same price as £500.

Design & Feel

Design is what makes a lot of difference when it comes to the comparison between iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy s8. By the looks of the iPhone, it seems as if Apple paid no attention to the design side of the Apple iPhone 8. In all honesty, the design of the iPhone isn't much different from the iPhone 6, which was released a couple of years before the launch of the iPhone 8. But when one takes the Samsung galaxy s8 into its hand, one realizes that's it's on the next level and beats iPhone 8 several folds when it comes to design. The design of the Samsung Galaxy s8 is unbelievably amazing. The screen is curved and sinks into the frame so nicely one can't feel when the display ended and where the frame started. The same is the case with the back of the S8, full glass back carefully carved. Other than the apparent look, the Samsung S8 is also much taller than iPhone 8 which provides a much better user experience as it's slimmer and makes it easy for the user to get the phone stick to their palm.
