The tech industry has been a battle between different manufacturers with each striving to offer the best of features you can think about. One of the most interesting battles in this field includes the iPhone 8 and Note 8, which were recently released. The phones are perfectly designed and come with advanced features, but a buyer might want to pick the best between the two, which is a decision that calls for understanding the features each offer.
Noelle Neff is a tech enthusiast and reviewer who has also been following up on the different gadgets that have been released to the market in the recent past. With this information, she has penned informative articles that highlight the awesome features different gadgets have. Here is a comparison of the iPhone 8 and Note 8 with focus on their selling points.
When you focus on the design, the Note 8 takes it as the phone is designed to offer an impressive feel and look. It features an end-to-end display that curves on the sides. When compared to the iPhone 8, the Note 8 takes it because the iPhone is just a flat slab with no much to write about as far as looks go.
When it comes to display, the Note 8 uses an AMOLED display type while the iPhone runs an lcd screen that offers a colorful and bright display. The AMOLED on the Note 8 is not only sharper but also renders the sRGB color gamut better. The OLED-based system of the Note 8 achieves deeper blacks and comes with a wider viewing angle.
When it comes to performance, the iPhone 8 plus beats the Note 8 and this is thanks to the inclusion of the new A11 Bionic chip, which is powered by a 6-core chip. The Galaxy Note 8 relies on the Snapdragon 835 octa-core chip, which performs fairly well.
The dual cameras of the iPhone 8 are more focused as they achieve better contrast and can give more vivid colors. Images on the Note 8 appear a bit washed out, but that notwithstanding, the cameras of the Note 8 are fast and can capture sharper images. Most importantly, with the Note 8 you are able to adjust the intensity of the blur effect before and after shooting, which is something you cannot do on the iPhone 8.
- Battery life
On endurance, both phones have scored impressively well. Tests have shown a difference of 5 minutes with the iPhone 8 taking the battle, which is a margin that cannot be taken to mean that much of a performance.
- Biometric/login options
Security is a consideration that both phones have addressed fairly well. On the number of login options, the Galaxy Note 8 offers you an iris scanner, face recognition, and a fingerprint scanner. The iPhone 8, on the other hand, gives you only a fingerprint scanner, which means the Note 8 gives you more control over your login options.
When it comes to charging, the iPhone 8 and Note 8 come with a wireless charging system. Both rely on the Qi coil for charging, so you can use virtually any wireless charging pad.
- Input/output audio options
On the iPhone 8, you will not get a headphone jack as this feature was removed from iPhone 7. This is not the case with the Note 8 as the phone offers a headphone jack that allows you to play your music.
- Storage options
The other factor you will need to know about is storage. The iPhone 8 offers you 64GB and 256GB options with no external storage. However, the Note 8 comes with a 64GB storage capacity with expandable memory up to 256GB using a micro SD card.
