There are a lot of similarities between the iPhone X and Galaxy S8, including the bezel-less displays, support for wireless charging, and next-level biometric technology. So, what makes Apple’s latest device so different?
Apple is hoping its dual-camera setup, TrueDepth camera technology, and software will attract people away from Samsung’s incredible flagship. Oh, and the iPhone X supports Animoji, for those times when you want to send animated emoji to friends and family.
The real difference between these two phones comes down to price. The iPhone X starts at $999, which puts it out of reach for a lot of consumers. The Galaxy S8, meanwhile, is just over $700 if you want it unlocked straight from Samsung.
