It is not every day that you come across a phone like the iPhone X.
The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a 6.3-inch Quad HD+Super AMOLED Infinity Display-the biggest screen ever on a Note device, S Pen with a finer tip, improved pressure sensitivity, and a rear camera with two 12MP lenses-wide angle and telephoto.
The iPhone X's Supe Retina display is simply gorgeous, but the Note 8's is no slouch. Samsung's new phone will cost $960; Apple's high-end iPhone X will cost $999, 45% more than the average selling price of an iPhone in 2016.
Samsung Electronics' System LSI Business Department is supplying DDICs (Display Driver Integrated Circuits) to Apple.
The iPhone X is priced at Rs 89,000 for the 64GB variant and Rs 1,02,000 for 256GB in India.
What makes the Essential phone stand out is its simple software. You have to re-buy all your apps, and re-learn how to do everything. There's also a connector on the back of the phone for snapping on accessories, like Essential's miniature 360-degree camera. But, with the launch of the Galaxy S8+, that has blurred somewhat. Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ have screens made of curved glass that slightly folds over the device's edges.
As it turned out, the 3D laser and sensor technology we'd heard about were used only on the front of the iPhone X for the new Face ID authentication method, and for the new Animoji in Messages.
If you buy the iPhone X, right now you'll only get Face ID, a unique face-based security system that uses infrared tracking to determine if you are you before it unlocks.
The iPhone 8 Plus retains its dual-lens camera which, along with its clever zoom and Portrait Mode, can now change the lighting in pictures. In emerging markets, especially China, they will compete to persuade consumers to trade up from cheaper phones.
It appears that Samsung is really interested in having a foldable smartphone. As a longstanding Android user though, this isn't actually anything all that new; Android phones from Samsung and LG have been doing this for years. Indeed, according to media reports, this puts the Apple smartphone in the ballpark of the Google Pixel 2; excellent news for Apple considering the extra cache its branding undoubtedly carries.
Apple has now included wireless charging on its latest smartphone which means it can get a refill by simply being placed on a compatible pad.
While it was widely anticipated that Apple will release a 512GB version of either the iPhone X or iPhone 8, in reality this never came to fruition.
