Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7: Designs
Now a day it is seeming easy to recognize the smartphones as all of the phones are looking same, But Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 are worlds apart when we talk about their designs.
The Galaxy S8 has a glass back and metal frame, with the glass on both the side gently curving it makes comfortable to hold in hand.
The iPhone 7 has a quite different but similarly premium design, with a metal unibody that’s slim and compact at 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm, while the Galaxy S8 is 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm. It makes iPhone 7 a bit smaller than Galaxy S8.
The S8 is also IP68 certified, making it slightly more water-resistant than the IP67 certified iPhone 7.
Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with 3.5 mm Audio Jack so you can use headphones and you won’t get this with iPhone 7.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7: Display

The Samsung Galaxy S8 also uses Super AMOLED, where the iPhone 7’s screen is LCD – meaning Samsung’s phone offers more vivid, high-contrast colors.

Those are both top-end chips, so we expect silky smooth performance in both and perhaps Samsung to at least match the iPhone in terms of screen response under the finger.

There is no 64GB iPhone 7 model, but even the 128GB one comes in at $749/£699/AU$1,229, which is comparable in the UK and still cheaper than the rumored S8 price in the US.

The difference between camera is slightly hard to guess for the best and battery power is about same.
Going purely by specs, the Samsung Galaxy S8 looks to be the slightly more powerful phone – but the spec list isn’t everything, and you’ll have to pay an eye-watering price to get it.
