Samsung vs iPhone Design

The building design here between these two are very different as well with the iPhone made up from mostly aluminum which seems to hold up well overtime while we know note 8 is mostly glass sandwiching in metal frameAnd yes that glass might not be the most forgiving when it comes to drops.

We have single mono speaker, headphone jack and the notes S Pen slot for some additional software features.

Samsung vs iPhone Display

Around the front side the Galaxy Note 8 rocks a 6.3 inch Super AMOLED curved display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 while over on the iPhone 7 plus we have a 5.5 inch display with a 1,080 x 1,920 resolution.

Samsung vs iPhone Camera

Speaking of the back side of the phone here on the note 8 we have a new camera system that sports dual 12 megapixel sensors with an  f/1.7 wide-angle lens and an f/2.4 2x telephoto lens both of which pack optical image stabilization.

On the iPhone 7 plus we have a similar dual camera setup with two 12 megapixel sensors with a standard 28 millimeter f/1.8 optically stabilized lens and a 2x telephoto lens with an aperture of f /2.8.

Now both of these pack similar camera features such as the iPhone 7 plus is portrait mode and the Galaxy Note 8 brand new live focus mode .

Samsung vs iPhone Battery

Around the bottom Samsung is using a USB type-c connector that we’ve seen with previous releases and it works to charge up its 3300 mAh battery.

With the iPhone we have a 2900 mAh battery that’s charged up with apples proprietary lightning connector as well as a speaker setup that works in somewhat of a stereo configuration with audio output from here and the earpiece at the top.

Samsung vs iPhone Sensors

Both of these devices also have fingerprint sensors but with the iPhone we have a home button that doubles as its reader while the fingerprint sensor on the note 8 is located in an awkward position on the back side that can easily be lost without muscle memory.

Also both of these devices feature ip 68 dust and water resistance ratings but the note 8 also packs wireless charging which might be essential to some people out there.

Samsung vs iPhone OS

Moving along to software you’ll find some huge differences as well the note 8 runs Android and the iPhone runs iOS and the note 8 has one trick up its sleeve in the form of the S Pen.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with Android 7.1.1, rather than the newly announced Android 8 Oreo , though we have no doubt that the latest version will reach Samsung’s phablet sooner or later.

The iPhone 7 Plus meanwhile runs iOS 10.3.3, and will be upgradeable to iOS 11 when that lands later this year.

Samsung vs iPhone processor & RAM

These are two very different smartphones and in terms of specifications the Galaxy Note 8 is rocking a Snapdragon 835 processor and 6 GB of RAM inside while the iPhone 7 plus packs an A10 fusion chip with 3 GB of RAM.

There’s also plenty of storage in both phones, with the Galaxy Note 8 coming in a choice of 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB sizes, along with a micro SD card slot allowing you to add up to 256 GB more, while the iPhone 7 Plus comes in 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB sizes, but with no micro SD card slot.

Samsung vs iPhone Price

The iPhone 7 Plus, which starts at $769/£719/AU$1,269 for a 32GB model and rises to $969/£919/AU$1,569 for a 256GB one, is certainly one of the most expensive on the market.

But the Note 8 is going to cost Around £869 (which should be around $950/AU$1200).this is a big increase.
