Further to add, the special addition in the form of OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) makes it the world’s best smartphone camera.
iPhone X will be available in two different storage variants namely 256 GB and 64 GB while Galaxy S8 offers a standard 64 GB storage capacity with expandable memory up to 256 GB.
The very first version of the iPhone released with 2 storage options,8 and 4 GB. In general, all iPhones come equipped with different storage levels ranging from 16 to 256 GB.
While Samsung’s Galaxy S8 operates on Android Nougat (7.0), iPhone X runs on the latest, all-powerful iOS 11. We will get to know more when the phone reaches our hand in a few weeks from now.
iOS 11 has made the iPhone very special and it has been equipped with technology to learn from us. Unbelievably smart, it helps us in more personal exclusive ways than before.
iPhone X’s Face ID feature unlocks the phone only when we look at it and it will not work with our eyes closed.
It is specially designed to avoid spoofing by masks and photos. Secure Enslave ensures our face map is digitally encrypted and the authentication is immediate.
The Galaxy S8 has gone a step further by providing three trouble-free security features such as Iris Scan (unlock your phone with your eyes ), selfie posture facial recognition and the fingerprint sensor at the back.

Meanwhile, Samsung offers wire and wireless charging capacity compatible with WPC(Wireless Power Consortium) and PMA (Power Matters Alliance).
S 8 runs on 3000mAh battery while Apple is yet to reveal this detail.
Like Siri for Apple, it is Bixby for Samsung. Bixby is your virtual personal assistant programmed to understand your text inputs, touch or voice inputs and then it guides you with your task effortlessly.
While Apple’s Siri is expected to come back much stronger this time, let’s wait and watch what iPhone X is going to offer when it reaches the stores nearby.
