Poll: Did Apple or Samsung have the best flagships of 2017?
Apple just revealed its new smartphones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X ("Ten"). How do they compare to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8, the cream of the crop in the Android world? We want to know what you think!
Samsung vs Apple: battle of the top manufacturers
Samsung's high end offerings are the most coveted among Android users, and this year's additions to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series have left a very good impression on us so far. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ introduced a modern, luxurious design with all glass and curves. The Note 8 follows suit with the same style and top of the line hardware, plus a few tricks of its own like the S-Pen.
Just days ago, Apple had its big unveiling of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. These devices seem to have taken some inspiration from cutting edge Android smartphones. The tenth iPhone takes a big step forward in terms of design, ditching its iconic bezels and home button for a trendy bezel-less design with a notch at the top of the display for the sensors. The iPhone 8, on the other hand, probably should have just been called the iPhone 7S, as it wasn't so revolutionary. The finer points of the devices are the new A11 Bionic chip, facial recognition, wireless charging thanks to glass backs and augmented reality capabilities.
With their latest smartphones, both Samsung and Apple offer top shelf hardware, design and high prices to match. To refresh your memory, here's how much each is going for in the US right now:
- Samsung Galaxy S8: $724
- Samsung Galaxy S8+: $824
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8: $929
- iPhone 8: $699
- iPhone 8 Plus: $799
- iPhone X: $999

After seeing Apple's new Flagship device i.e. iPhone X, my vote goes to Samsung.
A little bit of a biased population here, but the fact remains that Apple is too far behind in technology
neither Samsung or Apple are offering anything that's actually worth the price..
I'm not gonna get £700's worth of upgrades to my current UX from either of these flagship's of fashion...
for the past couple of years I've been happily using a device with a QHD amoled screen, a screen to body ratio of 74%, front facing audio, wireless charging and monthly security updates...
about the only really noticeable "upgrade" I could achieve would be a duel camera, which is not worth paying £700 for...
People are really getting feed up with Apple & Samsung pricing policy of there phones,loads will keeping loyal to there current phones because they can't afford to switch to the new models available by Apple & Samsung, you do not have to pay for a top brand to get a decent phone,and with more bezeless phones getting released at the moment,loads of consumers will end up leaving Apple & Samsung, even me myself keeping checking you tube for a more affordable phone,if 2017 is like this then 2018 phones will be getting more expensive
God just getting sick to death of androidpit thinking all smartphones revolve around apple and samsung?
What about LG the V30 should be in the running
I would like to get a Note 8, but I am not paying $1500AU for one, when my S7 edge works just fine.
