2017 has been a year of big smartphone war which seems to be unending. The major tussle has been between two leading mobile phone manufacturers in the world- Apple and Samsung. Samsung’s Galaxy 8 has taken head on with Apple’s iPhone 8 with both devices winning a considerate number of buyers who are willing to spend some serious amount of money on either of the two brands.
Selling at an average of £690, the Galaxy S8 has impressive features that include an expanded screen size and a more powerful camera. On the other hand, iPhone 8 features a sleek design that ditches the physical home button with an all glass screen. Based on a clear evaluation of the two Smartphones, here is how they compare.

Samsung Galaxy S8 features a curved screen billed out as an infinity display. The overall design of the smartphone is simply amazing and beautiful. Just like iPhone 8, it has also eliminated the physical home button incorporating it into the phone’s handset software along with other contextual keys.

However, Samsung Galaxy S8 still features a 3.5mm headphone Jack which lies at the top left edge of the smartphone.
