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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
