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.
An A10 Fusion chip for up to 2x faster performance than iPhone 6. Touch ID. A 4.7-inch Retina HD display with wide color and 3D Touch. Faster LTE. Immersive stereo sound, splash and water resistant, and iOS 10. The iPhone 7 display uses the same color space as the digital cinema industry, so what you see will be noticeably more brilliant and vibrant. When you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. The new Retina HD display deeply integrates 3D Touch throughout iOS. Now you can interact with Messages, Calendar, Mail, and other apps.

What customers say about "Display"
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The S8 has the best display on the market. The phone is lightweight and powerful. Gaming and video playback are very smooth
  • Awesome display and smooth interface
  • I just bought a phone and first thing i liked was display with edge and sharp colors! Also when you watch videos on youtube, video will take full screen on phone and show you more view!
  • The edge to edge display further enhances the screen. Perhaps the best feature of the phone
  • Love the edge display and how it works very well with the phone both locked and unlocked.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Better display (wider colour gamut)
  • The Retina display is the same as it has been since the iPhone 4. 326 pixels per inch is a good looking display. It certainly does not compete with some other phones and their higher resolution screens, but for now, the screen still gets the job done.
  • 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. Well it definitely does. This is honestly one of the most color accurate displays I have ever seen
  • The display looks exactly like the 6s, I cannot tell the difference with my eyes. Overall I was expecting more from a $900 phone.
  • I have to say, this is a good phone but it's basically a 6s without a phone jack. Same display as the 6s.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Love processor speed, resolution and everything in general.
  • The graphic is amazing and processor of the phone is fast
  • It has fast ram that makes it efficient to run many apps at the same time. It also has enough memory to download several apps.
  • Zero lag due to 4gb Ram and QS835 processor. Definitely the best video quality in the market right now.
  • The processor is nice and fast, and I feel that the storage space is adequate. Should storage ever become an issue it's upgrade-able with Samsung bringing back the SD mini card holder again!
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • 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 allows multitasking between various applications without any delays in output.
  • Great phone overall with a very fast processor, and doesn't overheat. On my iPhone 5s, I would notice quickly that my phone would become hot, but not with the iPhone 7. I would recommend this to anyone that is trying to get the best operating system, but at the same time the fastest phone
  • First 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.
  • Launching Apps on the iPhone 7 is quicker than other Smartphones. Its processor works very fast and is capable of running high graphic games and supporting convoluted photo-editing applications.

What customers say about "Camera"
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • There are so many jokes about an android Camera compared to an iPhone but with this invention the joke is over. Regardless what any specs or friend may suggest the Samsung s8 camera shows way more detail than the iPhone 7 and it has a way better flash
  • The camera is a lot better than s7 edge. It is a lot faster too.
  • Great camera with super class picture and nice design. Easy to handle , fast processing
  • Have the best camera ever. Pictures are stunning.
  • The S8 has an awesome camera, very easy to use. Screen is difficult to see in sunlight but picture quality is wonderful.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • While the cameras have been improved for both the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, it is the 7 Plus that gets the dual camera that allows for extra zoom and portrait mode. T
  • camera takes much better pics (increased the megapixels and the difference is noticeable) and it has 5X zoom capability.
  • Unfortunately, the iPhone7 doesn’t have the second lens( as the iPhone plus has), The selfie camera was improved though, and I see a difference between evening photos taken with iPhone 6s and 7.
  • The camera is EXCELLENT. I've been a photographer for the better part of my life, and can leave my Nikon at home and walk out with this and be confident that any shots I need to take, can be taken with this. HDR is a must.
  • Very glitchy, several issues with the camera (black patch in corner) and sometimes takes a very long time to warm up and turn on from standby.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Great phone. Love the iris scanner. Not impressed by location of the finger print scanner and the curve of the phones edges.
  • Excellent smartphone, with ip68 protocol for water issues
  • Great Phone, Samsung has a lot of great features especially their Samsung pay feature.
  • I love the personal assistant "Bixby", the camera is fantastic, and the Samsung health feature lets me record my vitals and keep track of eating and sleeping habits.
  • I dont like how the speaker sounds. It´s a poor mono speaker.
  • It's a great phone, but wish Samsung would allow this phone to have the dual SIM card feature for their US version.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • SPEED, I was using a 6s and I notice a much snappier Safari and iMessage screens. Part of it may be IOS 10 but pages pop really fast. It is way way faster than the original 6.
  • Best iPhone ever hands-down .apples best product and this is coming from Emma android user I just love iOS 10 because it is somewhat like android marshmallow
  • The speed is incredible. The Touch ID is faster than you might want. The haptic feedback home button is genius.
  • Siri still lags behind Google's assistant, and that gap is only widening. Google' AI is so much better compared to Apple.
  • Headphone jack. This is a big drawback on a few levels.There is no immediate benefit to the removal of the headphone jack. Yes, you do get more space for a little more speaker boost but one can easily argue that most people will listen to their music more via headphones than just out of their phone

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • This is my first Samsung phone. I love it. The display is crystal clear. One full charge of battery lasted for > 24hrs.
  • I particularly like the long battery life and the cordless charger.
  • The other things are perfect but my only issue is regarding to the battery performance and it's not as I saw from the reviews and some YouTubes
  • The only weakness I can find from S8 is the battery life. It cannot last for one whole day without charging. But the functionality is really much more powerful compared with iphone.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Battery life is decent. Way better than my S5 I had before it.
  • The device keeps running smoothly, long lasting battery and still works and looks as new, no complains
  • Battery life held up respectably for me, usually lasting me 1.5 days on a single charge. I'm not a heavy user, however, so your mileage may vary. In general, this delivered slightly better battery life than the iPhone 6 for me.
  • The new battery is much better. I can listen to the music almost all day long, browse the internet for a few hours, make couple of calls and use other apps without charging my iPhone7 in the middle of the day. I also noticed that it takes less to fully charge the phone.
  • The battery runs down very fast. I dont even make calls on it yet nor do i download any social app on it yet and it just ran down. Is it that the battery i got with the phone not good?
