3 Reasons Why Galaxy S8 Is Better Than iPhone 7

Android vs. iOS (or android phones vs iphones) is a never ending debate. Sometimes this heated topic even causes some damages among debaters (Two roommates stabbed each other during a heated iPhone vs. Android debate ). We don’t expect to put this to an end but rather giving a rule of thumb for people who are still debating on this. Afterwards, we will give 3 reasons on why galaxy s8 is better than iphone 7 (we also have a post for why iphone 7 is better than galaxy s8).

It all comes to the personal preference

Sure, you could say that iOS is superior or android is more liberal and flexible. Or even … put some criticisms on android’s glitches factor. However, those points are getting blurring and minuscule day by day since hardware technology is advancing so fast, the obvious gap between iOS and android is getting to a very narrow scope. Just a very quick example here. 3 years ago, iphone was still the no-brainer king of the smartphone camera but nowadays a few android phones are catching up if not surpassing already (e.g., galaxy s7/s7 edge, galaxy s8/s8+, google pixel… etc).
 Therefore, it all comes to the preference, if you like simplicity and user friendly first design, you will support iPhone camp; however, if you are the person who would like to tinker around gadgets, you might just give android your cheers.

3 reasons why galaxy s8 is better than iphone 7

Since galaxy S8/S8+ is the new king of the android phone as of today, we would like to give you 3 reasons why we think galaxy s8 is better than iphone 7

1) Infinity Screen

The screen is just stunning. Not only the design (almost bezel-less which give you more screen real estate to interact with apps) but also its 5.8" Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display. It is also a high-resolution 3K (2960x1440) display and features a new and accurate 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, certified by the UHD Alliance for Mobile HDR Premium. Simply put this way, if you put an iphone 7 and a galaxy s8 side by side displaying a movie, you will just pick up the s8 without even thinking about it.

2) Camera

Sure, both iphone 7 and s8 has 12-megapixel rear camera but since galaxy s8 uses a wide f/1.7 lens (compared with iphone 7’s ƒ/1.8 aperture lens) it can produce much better picture in a low light situation.

3) Widget

It’s an old argument but it’s a very important one if you are a hunger content consumer like us. Here we use google play newsstand as an example. Compared with a decade ago, there are just infinite news outlets, blogs, sites, resources for us to consume contents (news, media, information … etc) nowadays. However, you only have 24 hours a day like everyone else in the world. How can you be efficiently consuming content via your phone? The media widget provides a better approach here. As the photo above shows, that you can quickly click through the news (up & down arrows) and choose which news/articles interest you and you would like to read further (or not… since you will have a very general idea of what the news is about) based on the titles and pictures of each news/article. It’s a great way of starting your day of knowing what’s happening around you (or in the world). It’s literally the feature that we use the most in terms of consuming contents.


No matter you are with the iphone camp or galaxy s8 camp, you can be sure that you have one of the best phones that you can get as of today. There are features that one is clearly over the other but you won’t make mistakes of choosing either of them.
