Samsung S8 and S8 plus are the new phones that have arrived in the market and prior to its launch date the company boosted of having it pre sold more than 728000 units with a target of 1 million. Samsung Flagship always is a great competitor to iOS iPhone and have been known as the best business phone. If you are interested to know as what makes Samsung Galaxy S8 better than Apple’s iPhone 7 then there are genuine reasons for it. Here are the ones to look for:
Look at the display and compare both the phones. The Galaxy S8 Plus has a 6.2-inch display with no side bezels and small top and bottom bezels. It is also narrower than the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch display. Independent testing also shows the Galaxy S8 has the highest rated display of all smartphones.
When it comes to batter life then you need to look for fast charging and wireless charging. You will find its a bit frustrating to charge up an iPhone 7 Plus, which explains why there is such a large market for slap on battery packs.
The iPhone 7 Plus has three memory configurations available, with the largest capacity 256GB being more than enough for most people. The Galaxy S8 Plus offers 64GB internal memory with a microSD storage card slot so you can pop inexpensive storage cards in and out as you please.
Apple has glass on the front and metal on the back while the Galaxy S8 has glass on the front and back. However, this glass is Gorilla Glass 5 that is designed for increased drop protection over previous glass panels, surviving 1.6 meter, shoulder height drops.
With multiple security options at Galaxy S8, you can set it up to unlock via facial recognition, iris scanning, fingerprint, pattern, PIN, or a password. The iPhone 7 Plus has a fast fingerprint scanner with options for a password or PIN, but Samsung’s iris scanner may be a more convenient and secure option.
People use their smartphones for everything today and with Samsung DeX, users now have the option to leave the laptop behind, by connecting their smartphone to a monitor and using it in place of a desktop computer. Apple has no ability to extend the iPhone to an external display.
Samsung continues to improve its virtual reality experience with a handheld controller now included with the Gear VR. While VR can be used for games or media viewing, there are also enterprise reasons for VR. These include presenting virtual walkthroughs of engineering designs, medical procedure reviews, and interactive presentations.
There is a ton of potential in Samsung Bixby as it looks to improve the efficiency and productivity of the user.

With a dedicated button on the Galaxy S8, Samsung is committed to making Bixby all it promises to be and you can look forward to making regular tasks more convenient and intuitive.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the first phones to launch with Bluetooth 5.0 support. Bluetooth 5.0 improves connectivity performance, extends the range of Bluetooth, and allows you to connect two Bluetooth headphones to one Galaxy S8 at the same time.
Apple Pay is popular, but nothing beats Samsung Pay when it comes to the number of retail locations that are supported. The technology allows you to replace your credit or debit card. You can make couple of purchases with your Gear S3 smartwatch using Samsung Pay and more banks are added regularly and Samsung also offers a ton of promotions to encourage Samsung Pay use.
While Apple thinks it was courageous to take away the headphone jack, most people still use headphones with a standard 3.5mm connector. A 3.5mm headphone jack is convenient and economical while not having to worry about charging up another device.
