Comparing the Latest Phones


The latest two smartphones to be released are the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X. The Galaxy Note 8 was released August 23, 2017, a year after the Galaxy Note 7 was released, which had bad batteries and would blow up or catch on fire. Owners were unable to fly on airplanes because it was too dangerous and many people returned their phones. The Apple iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X were released September 15, 2017, a year after the iPhone 7 came out. We were all expecting the iPhone 7s, but they skipped right to the 8. Apple also skipped the 9 and released the 10 with the 8 and 8 plus. In the announcement of the iPhone X, they did refer to it as the 10. The new iPhone 8, 8 plus and X have glass backs and Apple claims that the glass is stronger than ever. Apple has had glass back phones before and they would shatter easily. Galaxy has glass backs and they do not have bad reviews.

The Galaxy Note 8 has a large and edged screen, making almost the whole phone screen. We have all been waiting for Apple to follow. The iPhone has been a larger screen phone, but not all screen and there was still a lot of empty space. I am very excited that Apple has finally released the iPhone X, a phone that is all screen. Samsung and Apple are always competing on their phones, and for a long time I think Samsung was killing it until Apple upped their game and now both phones are all screen and are getting better with their software.
