Poll results: Will the iPhone 8 be better than the Galaxy S8?

We won't find out for sure until September if the iPhone 8 is as good as, or maybe even better than, the Galaxy S8. Nevertheless, last week we asked if you think Apple's next flagship will manage to beat Samsung's latest, and now we're back with the results.

Since the Galaxy S8 came out in April, we've done a full review of the device and it impressed us in almost every way. Its technical specs give it superior performance, whilst its design is among the absolute best on the market. It would be a difficult task for the iPhone 8 to top this, and the poll results reflect this.

The results show that over half of AndroidPIT readers who participated are doubtful that the iPhone 8 will be better than the S8. 21 percent of voters were certain that it wouldn't be better, responding "no way", while 33 percent were kind of leaning the same direction, responding "I doubt it".

On the flip side, a quarter of respondents answered positively about the iPhone 8's prospects against the S8. 13 percent said it would be better than the S8 "without a doubt" and 12 percent said it was "very likely". Those who have confidence in the iPhone 8 are a minority among AndroidPIT readers.

21 percent of the 281 voters said they were "not sure yet" whether it would be better. This makes sense, as there just haven't been enough consistent leaks about the device so far to make a proper judgment. The latest rumors about the device say that it will have a more powerful processor than its predecessor and smaller bezels, in addition to a vertical dual camera and 3D facial recognition camera. To really set itself apart, the next iPhone could increase its battery life and perhaps opt for better placement of the fingerprint scanner than the S8. But, until details are unconfirmed by Apple, we can't be sure of anything.

Are you excited about the next iPhone? Let us know why or why not in the comments.

    S8 is a great phone. & far as the fingerprint scanner, I think they put it in a different spot because they want you to forget about it. It's about to be a thing of the past. Start getting use to face recognition & iris scanner. That's the future. I bet all the phones yall say is better will catch up here & there. Like wireless charging etc...the G6+ finally gave in lol...Or caught up.

    Basically the iPhone will have 1-2 killer features which might not be the best thing you need out there but the Apple fans will go crazy. And then within a month or two, Android smartphones will start having that same feature for quarter the price.

    It might be to some extent, but who cares. I'm not about to change ecosystems

    I'm not sure 🤔. Let me ask Bixby, after I unlock the S8 with the extremely conveniently located fingerprint scanner. LOL! 😂

    I don't really see a reason why wouldn't it, there are android phones which are better already and the phone is a couple months old lol like the HTC U11 and the Xperia XZ Premium, it would be hard to think a phone with that much time ahead wouldn't be better and that's not a bad thing, competition improves the products and the buyer gets the benefit from it

    I don't care about anything Apple offers. I prefer Android's open source project, because I can do whatever the heck I want with my phone. I'm just kinda glad that the iPhone exists because it keeps Android manufacturers on their toes. But that's it.

    Of course, this is no difficult, the new HTC U11 is best than Galaxy S8. There is a lot of marketing around of Samsung and its phones...

    Just can't wait to see the pricing of the iPhone 8, and will finally make the iPhone users realise that Apple as always ripped them off,o.k Apple do not release phones regularly but the restrictions on Apples phones as always kept me away from ever buying a iPhone, not offering the micro sd card slot seems to be the reason why people have to pay more for there iPhones,which is totally wrong idea by Apple,Will the iPhone 8 be a phone that changes there strategy, if loads can't afford to buy the new phone and make them switch to Android phones instead?

      I agree with you. Their strategy is how they can get more money from the consumer just by adding a new color, more storage, and features that come standard on any Android device. It's so obvious what this company does. 🤑
