the Samsung Galaxy S8 + is the big gamble this year by Samsung to dethrone the iPhone 7 Plus will be succeeded? . before you start, I want to clarify something. This phones change only occurs during a weekend because it is time that this editor has to try it, however there are some interesting differences between both terminals that we discuss below.
Samsung Galaxy S8 + vs iPhone 7 Plus
the first thing I want to do is to clarify what many are thinking, this Samsung Galaxy + S8 does not explode. The last great Samsung device exploited (twice) but the Koreans have spent time, effort and money to leave behind the difficulties of the past.
the Galaxy S8 + is the best phone created by Samsung so far. The design is amazing, elegant and unique. The effect of “infinite screen” created by Samsung is the big trump card against the iPhone 7 Plus. While a device we have 5.5 inch, Korean Terminal is incredible 6.2 inch but the feeling in hand is practically similar, even smaller Samsung than the Apple terminal .
the feeling of both is elegant but when you have a screen such as the Samsung costs you back to one as the iPhone. In this regard, I want to stop a moment in the famous proportions of screen introduced the Galaxy S8 +. 18, 5:9 I like especially when I see in this aspect. However frustrates me very much not to see some external applications adapted . It is a matter of time but frustrated.
design is not all
if there is something that controls Apple to perfection, is the relationship between hardware and software . Samsung improved noticeably in the section of the software but still behind. The “button” Home introduced on the screen is the same as the famous 3D 7 Plus iPhone Touch. Don’t know words to explain my feelings with this button, but if I can say that Apple is better suited, “feeling” issue.
the performance of the S8 + is fluid, fast, you won’t have any problem, but these benchmarks via the internet are determined to give the iPhone 7 Plus as the winner in this aspect. It is not a problem of Samsung in particular, if we look at the rest of the competition phones, almost all are behind the Galaxy S8 +, unless Apple terminal. The iPhone 7 Plus 6 months of age is fast (or more) than your competitor more powerful Android.
to be able to compete against the iPhone 7 Plus need initiative, I believe that Samsung has included some important differential developments that will help to choose between this phone and not on the other. Bluetooth 5.0, Bixby (although it is still very very green), Wireless charging iris reader,…
all provide although none stand out in a way significantly. Apple and Samsung are experts in these details that ultimately end up impacting on the quality (and price) of their products.
the price is not least
these terminals are expensive, we have the most expensive devices on the market, but their prices are worth it. Whether by design, performance, software or just those differential details, both the 7 Plus iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy + S8 are the two large terminals so far. They are not perfect but they are the best .
the iPhone 7 Plus features a design criminalizing it in matters of dimensions, more taking into account that the design is very similar to its predecessors . However, Samsung has in my view two large failures. Unlock at the back button is a hindrance, the rear camera spots because it is not easy to place your finger on the sensor, is located too high, in serious why you put the sensor there? do not understand.
the other great failure in my view is the camera. I want to explain well to this point. Photos and videos with the Samsung Galaxy + S8 are incredible, we have one of the best cameras of the year but it is virtually the same as its predecessor. If the iPhone 7 Plus is criticized by a design similar to its predecessors to the Samsung Galaxy + S8 also there are to do with camera (very good to be this).
a, in my opinion, high end phones have three fields which renew every year. Performance, software and camera . Samsung complies largely with the first two paragraphs but on the issue of the camera does not. Koreans come from a level top three in 2016 with the S7 edge, however and seeing that there is still a lot of competition that has to go to market, I doubt that Samsung can boast of the Chamber of the S8 + end of year. There are improvements, but not sufficient for a phone whose cost approximates the 1000 euros .
in summary, the Samsung Galaxy + S8 has several strong points (design, screen, Wireless charging, iris reader…) like the iPhone 7 Plus (performance, dual camera, Touch ID technology, dual speakers, etc.) but there are also quite important negative sections, however these do not end up tarnishing a terminal excellent than rivals from you to you against the iPhone 7 Plus .
