Now that the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus are out in the open, how will the top of the line Apple phone stand up to its recent competition?
There is only one obvious choice here. Duh
V30 and it isn't even close.
how could the article forget the most powerful phone to date, Xperia XZ premium???
it blows all 3 off the water
The XZ is a good phone but it is outdated at this point. If you knew anything of phone specs you would know it doesn't hold a candle to the S8 or V30 in any aspect except screen resolution and maximum brightness.
Sony should be announcing a new Xperia before the end of the year, which will compete with the S8 and V30.
IMO the Xperia line does still win on looks. Love the metal slab styling.
depends on which one blows up first
Why would they match the iPhone X to a S8... it's more comparable to a Note 8
Pshhhhh. Please. The X crushes the Note 8.
The X is trash, and doesn't crush anything, lol. Iphones are getting worse every year. Only diehards still defend them.
iPhone X??? Really? They are using Microsoft marketing.
Yep. Now they even took away part of your viewing screen. What will apple think of next?
Waiting for a war :D
Apple is pretty much garbage at this point. Really expensive garbage.
don't care about iPhone's new hardware since I hate their software and it's UI. too bad the X isn't an android device instead, would've bought it day one.
BODY - draw
DISPLAY - S8
PERFORMANCE - S8/V30 draw
SOFTWARE - depends if you like custom or plain - obviously its a matter of choice - draw
MEMORY AND STORAGE - S8/V30. has more ram and space for SD-card if you really need the space
BATTERY LIFE - V30
CAMERA - V30
FEATURES - IPHONE - fingerprint scanners is nothing new.
PRICING - S8 if the $800 starting point of the V30 is correct.
so judging from this - iphone really hasnt got any reason to be most expensive phone from the three.
IMO the V30 wins on display, the V30 has very slightly lower resolution but not to a noticeable extent. On the other hand, it is .2" larger and has true HDR10 support. The 18:9 aspect is also a nice bonus for the V30.
Features = V30>S8>X. The V30 has a 32bit quad DAC, a far superior mic (capable of clearly handling audio up to 148db, and is the only one of the 3 that will reportedly, finally, include a working FM tuner on the NA models. 2-factor fingerprint + pin is still far more secure than a face scan, both technically and from a legal (compel to unlock) standpoint. The S8 also includes a face scanner anyway, and it is the only one of the 3 to have a retinal scanner, which again is technically more secure than a face scan.
For performance we will have to wait for the production unit bench tests. The V30 has slightly higher clock speeds on the 4 performance cores, but it could go either way depending on how they have Android set up.
i agree with everything you say.
you do bring up some good points too which i may have over-looked.
but yeah, what this proves for certain is that apple is just ripping off people at this point and whats sad is people still believe its worth the money.
