The iPhone 8 has officially been announced, and we’re taking a look at how well the latest “Standard” iPhone stands up against the competition. This time around, we’re taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 to help you decide which option is better in the long run.
Unlike Android OEM’s, Apple is usually pretty hush, hush about the specs for its devices, save for the screen size, processor, and camera. However, we already know a bit about the iPhone 8, as the device features a 4.7-inch LCD display, compared to the 5.8-inch Super AMOLED panel found on the Galaxy S8.
As for the rest of the specs, we know that the iPhone 8 comes equipped with Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The amount of RAM seems like something you would see out of a budget phone, and this sentiment rings true considering the fact that the Galaxy S8 comes equipped with double that amount at 4GB of RAM along with the Snapdragon 835.
When it comes to the camera, the iPhone 8 features a single 12MP rear sensor, which includes phase detection autofocus and OIS. Similar the iPhone 8, the Galaxy S8 does not feature a dual camera system, instead, opting for a single 12MP sensor along with OIS, phase detection, and laser autofocus.
Other than the cameras, the iPhone 8 includes the ability to wirelessly charge via an inductive Qi charging pad. This is a welcome addition, and a feature that was also included on the Galaxy Note 8 as has been the case with many of Samsung’s smartphones over the last few years.
