    Compare: iPhone X vs Galaxy Note 8
    2017 has seen its share of amazing and cutting-edge smartphones. None more so than the iPhone X from Apple and the Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung. If you are looking for a top-of-the-line device, then you really can’t go wrong with these two.
    Let’s get down to brass tacks. Of the two smartphones, which one has the upper hand over the other? What are you really looking for to get you leaning to the side of one device? Brand preference aside, let’s take a look at both devices and see who has the better overall advantage.
    The Samsung Galaxy Note 8
    After the wake of the Note 7 disaster, Samsung is looking to bounce back and recover with the Note 8.  Samsung’s newest flagship phone is standard with all the bells and whistles of modern day smartphone technology. This includes a Super AMOLED display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, HDR10 capabilities, USB Type-C compatibility, and an IP68 rating, to name a few. All these features place the Note 8 head and shoulders above the rest of the android phones in the market. Samsung has been adamant that the previous woe of the Note 7 will not be an issue with this new iteration, so we will just have to take their word for it. Hopefully, nothing will bog down the release of the Note 8 and sees mass production in the coming days.
    The Apple iPhone X
    To mark the 10th year anniversary of the existence of the iPhone, Apple has produced the iPhone X as their modern day flagship smartphone. As with Apple’s propensity in manufacturing their products, it is an incremental upgrade from the previous generation of iPhones. But, with the iPhone X, Apple has decided that a makeover was in order when it came to their 10th anniversary smartphone. It now sports an edge-to-edge display and is being powered by the brand new A11 Bionic and is IP67 certified. Another that stand out is that the iPhone X is now Qi wireless charging compatible. A feature that has already seen implementation for over a couple of years, has now graced the iPhone. Together with all that comes standard with all iPhones, the iPhone X is turning out to be an amazing competitor of the Galaxy Note 8.
    The conclusion
    Now comes the age-old question, iOS or android? While some prefer the simplistic and user friendly design of the iOS, others have lauded the extreme customizability of the android. When it comes to the operating system, to each his own. Both have good points and both have bad ones. It is all about  user preference.
    And we can go on and on, ad nauseam, about the hardware of each phone and which ones are better, but what it really comes down to is how the device feels and how it functions as an every driver. As a pure smartphone and a social media device made for just connecting with people and the world, then the iPhone X is the right kind of phone for you. But if you want a very capable and powerful assistant who helps you with your day-to-day activity then go for the Note 8.
    Each device has its own perk and quirk, and it is not that hard to pick one from the other. One can’t say a device is way better than the other. It all has to do with the preference of a person when it comes to the OS, function and aesthetic of a smartphone. Just grab whatever tickles your fancy and caters to your daily needs.
