Apple iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8


Today, smartphones are more accessible than they’ve ever been before. For $100 or less, you can take home a brand-new handset that’s more than ready to get you online, connect you with all your favorite social media, and even snap some decent-looking photos.

While those entry-level options are great for users on tight budgets, there’s no shortage of more expensive models for shoppers able to spend a little more, offering increasingly feature-rich packages with bigger, high-res screens, advanced imaging systems, smoother performance, and eye-catching designs.

At the very far end …


Apple increasing production of iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus

As one great philosopher once said, “the proof is in the pudding” (perhaps he worked for Jell-O). With that in mind, it seems that demand for both the Apple iPhone X and Apple iPhone 8 Plus is stronger than expected. Supply chain reports indicate that for its fiscal first quarter, which ends when 2017 does, Apple will ship 26 million units of the tenth anniversary model. KGI Securities superstar Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple plans on increasing production of the iPhone X by 35% to 45% in the current quarter from the previous three month period.

Kuo gives two reasons why Apple …

Best smartphone cameras compared: iPhone X vs Galaxy Note 8, LG V30

Some jokingly call it the iPhone X-pensive or the iPhone 1000-dollars. Others wouldn’t mind spending a grand on it, knowing that they’ll be getting a technological marvel in return. Whichever side you’re on, you’ll probably agree with us when we say that the iPhone X is a remarkable phone – expensive, yes, but also exciting, futuristic, and gorgeously sculpted.

HMD announces it will soon release Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 8

We already know HMD plans to update all its Nokia smartphone to Android 8.0 Oreo since the Finnish company confirmed it numerous times in the past. The only thing that we need to determine is when exactly it will happen.

It goes without saying that HMD will not release the update to all its Nokia smartphones at the same time. Also, it would make sense for the most powerful device to get Oreo first, in this case, Nokia 8.

So, if you own the Nokia 8, you should ready your phone for a major Android update. HMD’s Chief Product Office, Juho Sarvikas confirmed …

Earnings warning hints at weak iPhone 8 sales; iPhone 7 is the most popular phone during Q3

Pegatron, one of the contract manufacturers used by Apple to assemble the iPhone, warned today that demand for the Apple iPhone 8 could be weak during the first quarter of 2018. The company said that it often experiences a seasonal slowdown during the start of a new year. Jeff Pu, an analyst at Yuanta Investment Consulting, predicts that Apple will slash orders for the iPhone 8 by 50% during the first quarter. Pegatron produces the iPhone 8 while Foxconn assembles the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. Apple contributes 60% of Pegatron’s revenue and is the company’s top customer.

Here is how you can get a free iPhone 8 64GB when you buy an iPhone X at AT&T

Remember we reported last month that AT&T doesn’t want to aggressively promote the iPhone X, so it decided not to offer any deals on Apple’s flagship? Well, it looks like there might be something in that the carrier will offer customers who can afford one, it’s just that the promotion will not be advertised.

We’ve got word that for a limited time, customers who buy the iPhone X can get the iPhone 8 64GB for free (after bill credits) when both are purchased on an installment plan with eligible service.

The offer is available since November 2, but eligible …

Apple iPhone X battery life test comparison vs iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy

The Apple iPhone X comes with a brand new 2,716 mAh battery that takes a weird L-shape and it’s clear that Apple has made the most of the available space to cram in a big battery cell. It’s not as large as on Android phones, but it is bigger than the battery of the iPhone 8 Plus.
So what is the actual battery life on the iPhone X?
We have spent a few days with the $1,000 phone and we have run our battery test to get the numbers. But first, here is how the iPhone X battery size compares to other iPhones and Samsung …
