Keeping track of all these rumors can be exhausting, especially if you are not sure which of the two high-end devices you should get, or if you are a keen follower of smartphone technology trends.
The heat on these two phones has continued to rise over the past few months, with questions on which device will outsell the other going without a confident answer.
On August 23rd, Samsung finally launched the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone is lashed with a gorgeous display and powerful specs, and it’s designed to be an absolute beast! With the iPhone also set to be launched most probably within the next month, it’s almost showdown for these giant tech companies. Which smartphone will be crowned the king in the business?
During its unveiling, Samsung was really clear with one message, that it will not just let Apple dominate. The company build up the Galaxy Note 8 with the best features from both Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy Note line and great additional components, to come up with its most impressive smartphone. It comes with the curved screen from S8 and S8+ which almost every user wants, and made it a little bigger at 6.3” (from 6.2” in the Galaxy S8+).
The smartphone has also been revamped with some slick lines and the revolutionary feel popularized by the S8 devices.

Rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 have surpassed any records in numbers, and ‘iPhone 8’ searches on Google have by far outweighed ‘Galaxy Note 8’ searches. The iPhone has reportedly seen Apple do a revamp on its iPhone designs, and this is expected to be one of the biggest releases from the company.
