We all know that the competition between Apple and Samsung is high but it could just have been elevated by a new report by Consumer Reports that dismisses the idea that the iPhone X is the best phone ever.
The influential publication conducted a full review of the new devices and concluded that Samsung’s offerings along with the cheaper iPhone 8 series are more suitable for most people.
“Taken as a complete package, this phone ranked a bit lower than Samsung’s S8, S8+, and Note8, mainly because of their superior battery life,” Consumer Reports said.
“But many longtime iPhone users aren’t interested in switching to Android, so the real question for them is whether to save a few bucks — or, actually, a couple hundred — and go with an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus instead.”
The publication issued scores with the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 highest in its rankings, each with an overall score of 81 out of 100.
Although only one point behind with 80 was the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S7, LG G6 and iPhone X.
The report found that consumers using the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus appreciated the “familiar Home Button” and the devices were “more resistant to breaking” in their comparison tests.
However, it wasn’t all bad news for the iPhone X, Consumer Reports praised the Face ID along with the advanced cameras and display.
