About the Product
The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8+ begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand.
iPhone 7 Plus dramatically improves the most important aspects of the iPhone experience. It introduces advanced new camera systems. The best performance and battery life ever in an iPhone. Immersive stereo speakers. The brightest, most colorful iPhone display. Splash and water resistance*. And it looks every bit as powerful as it is. This is iPhone 7 Plus.

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Edge display is easier on the eyes and phone overall feels more intuitive.
  • Colors are amazing, camera is great, thin and true edge-to-edge display, fast.
  • The AMOLED edge to edge display is absolutely brilliant and with 16 million colors and 4.1 million pixels, colors pop and the images are phenomenally sharp.
  • The edge program is a great option for apps that are frequently accessed but you don't want taking up valuable screen real estate.
  • The infinity display has no equal. Excellent viewing experience. I'm discovering new things I like, every day! Awesome device!
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • A 5.5-inch Retina HD display with wide color and 3D Touch is also impressive. Performance of the 7+ is much faster, colors more gradient and sharper.
  • The display is exceptional quality with 401 PPI resolution I love watching videos on the screen and using Hi-Res apps.
  • The retina HD display with 3D touch that allows users to press the pressure sensitive display that allows you to access shortcuts faster.
  • The Retina display is the standard 401 pixels per inch for the Plus series, and it is still a better looking display than the 326 pixels per inch of the regular iPhone 7.
  • One of the last great things about this phone is the display. When I first placed my order, I wondered if the display would live up to the claims. Wider-color gamut, 25% brighter.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Great processors, very good for multitasking. Plenty on memory for all your storage needs.
  • With the new processor, it is able to handle any game that I throw at it
  • The processor works smoothly and after a month use I can say the phone Never hanged once.
  • It keeps a wide variety of apps open in the background that use a low amount of ram for the users convenience.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • It has the A10 fusion processor which enhances its performance and balances the battery consumption.
  • This is the pinnacle of the IOS software experience. The 2GB of RAM, the A10 processor, and the implementation of IOS 10 is great. Everything runs well and quickly.
  • The processor, its amazing, but so is the processor in just about every phone now a days. But considering this phone is more powerful then any MacBook or MacBook Air, or Even iPad ever created, its pretty remarkable.
  • The processor seems slow. I was looking forward to these fast speeds that eliminating the headphone port was supposed to alllow. Again, I don't seem to notice any improvement over the 6.
  • The phone lags and heats up for no reason.... I dont think the phone is smart enough to handle the fastest processor on the market! Sorry and it's waaayy too overpriced.

What customers say about "Camera"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The camera takes great pictures and love the ability to use manual functions to take more professional pics
  • The cameras on this phone are both amazing. Makes great photos!
  • Great camera features shows clear focus is best I have seen just a handsome phone
  • Camera supports pictures with great clarity....just position and click.
  • This phone is very good and easy to use. The only downside is the camera, I personally still prefer the photos taken with Iphone camera.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • There are definite upgrades. This features two 12MP cameras for high-resolution zoom and an ƒ/1.8 aperture for great low-light photos and 4K video. This was a biggie for me
  • The advantages are the dual camera that has a 12 megapixels with 7 megapixels for the second camera with DSLR quality, which enhances the colors and quality, has 2x the optical zoom and records 4k videos.
  • The Dual camera- it takes really sharp pictures much sharper than my iPhone 6 Plus up to the 2X magnification.
  • It has a wonderful camera, and the pictures are much clearer and sharper than my V10, which had a pretty good camera.
  • The camera on the iPhone 7 is exceptional. The phone actually has two rear facing cameras. One is for normal range photos and the other is for longer range photos.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Comes with a nice variety of accessories, including adapters for charging in case you want to use a micro-USB charger or want to hook up a USB cable accessory for any reason.
  • Wide range of settings for customizing your user experience and security. (Even more than the usual for an Android/Samsung device)
  • I haven't put the water resistance to the test, but I'm assuming it's as good as the last model. Glad it's there.
  • All my old Apps transferred without issue using the Samsung program
  • Cool new features (facial recognition, iris scanner, edge menu, etc)
  • I would rather have defined Home, and Back keys
  • USB cable changed to the Type C - overall a better cable, but had to buy a bunch of new cables. Good for the long term
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • The touch ID and home button are on the front at the bottom. Both of your volume and power buttons are on the side.
  • Siri is definitely the best assistant out there, and I'm going to use her a lot.
  • The dual speakers are wonderful. I've had many different brands of phones, and the speakers on this one are finally loud enough to where I can have a phone conversation with them on, and hear perfectly.
  • I like the fact that one can still assign photos and specific ringtones to contacts.
  • I hate the home button. It's really irritating to have to press that thing instead of swiping left or right when I want to access something. In this respect, they're way behind Android.

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The battery is general is much better than the Samsung s7
  • 2 days and still have 20% battery remaining. Big improvement over the S5 that had. Hope this phone last as long.
  • I go 2 days before it needs to be put on a charger (I usually plug it in around 60% battery or so) and it's fully recharged in less than 2 hours. The battery life is phenomenal
  • Phone is superfast,multi-tasking,great battery life. Charging once in 3 days. Superb battery life.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Unlocked US Version (Black)
  • As for the phone itself, it has a battery that lasts for several days (depending on usage), far superior to my now aging iPhone 5, and is super fast!
  • Nothing to say as it is IPhone just go ahead to buy this time battery is too good from Apple
  • This 7+ also has the longest battery life.
  • The only thing that bothers me is the battery charge time. It's a 3 hour charge compared to a 1 hour charge on my S7 edge.
