Apple launched iPhone 7 in September 2016 as a successor of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus. No doubt it is a very good smartphone but after the launch of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in April, its value is shrinking. The reason is that Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the latest devices with many new features. Samsung also wants to regain the customer satisfaction and confidence that is shattered due to total failure of Galaxy Note 7. Galaxy S8 and S8+ preorders have broken all the previous records reaching a number 7, 20,000. Galaxy S8 is not only a good looking smartphone; it is the best combination of powerful hardware and software.
Tech experts also prefer Galaxy S8 and S8+ over the iPhone 7. I have picked the best features of Galaxy S8.
- Infinity Display
Samsung’s display is already considered as the top-rated display across the world and the company adheres to this even in Galaxy S8 and S8+. The phone boasts a 6.2 QHD display with least bezels along sides. Whereas, Apples’ iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch display. The contrast due to Super Amoled display is always the highest in Samsung’s smartphones.
- Bixby – a voice assistant
Another feature of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ which has made them the most liked smartphones is Bixby. It is a preinstalled app which enables the user to control the device with touch and even voice commands. A user can communicate with his device by speaking different commands.
- Security Options
Galaxy S8 and S8+ also boast many security options of which iris scanning is the unique one. iPhone 7 has the fingerprint scanner which is less secure than iris scanner. Also, iris scanner is the new feature and everyone wants to try it.
- Fast and Wireless Charging
Another very important reason for which Galaxy S8 and S8+ have an edge over iPhone 7 Plus is fast and wireless battery charging option. Although iPhone’s are also known for longer battery life, yet once empty, it becomes frustrating to charge them. They lack fast charging feature. Moreover, the facility of wireless charging also makes Galaxy S8 and S8+ the most liked devices. It also supports USB Type-C which is very useful for fast charging.
- Samsung Dex
Samsung Dex is one of the best features that let you connect the external display. The possession of this feature is also unique to Samsung as Apple gives no option to extend iPhone 7 display.
- PC Connectivity
Like all iPhones, iPhone 7 is also disliked because of the difficulty of connecting it with other devices and PC. Galaxy S8 and S8+ are easy to connect with PC or any other device to share data. In addition, it has a Bluetooth 5.0. It offers better connectivity to devices and speakers.
- Virtual Reality
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+ are better than iPhone 7 also in the sense of providing Gear VR for virtual reality which is very useful for individuals as well as businesses.
In short, we can say that Galaxy S8 and S8+ beats iPhone 7 in all respects. It is the preferred device because of improved user friendliness and security features.
