Here’s RAM management, Speed test, drop and camera comparison between Samsung’s Galaxy S8+ with 4G RAM Vs Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus with 3GB RAM.
It’s official now. Both the Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ shipping to already preordered customers, but those who haven’t yet already are thinking about the purchase, whether to grab one of Galaxy S8 or S8+ or stay on iPhone 7 Plus. Put some contrast prior the launch of iPhone 8. It would almost be impossible to not be actually aware that a new Samsung flagship is available in carrier stores and electronics retailers across the country, and Android fans are quite exited though.
This being Samsung, one of the only few smartphone makers that can compete with Apple these days, there has also been much attention on whether the Galaxy S8 will give the iPhone 7 a run for its money, let alone the iPhone 8 that is expected to be announced later this year. Before we go through the analysis, to go some way to answer that question from a pure performance standpoint.
An Youtuber PhoneBuff has put together a video in which an iPhone 7 Plus is pitted against the new Galaxy S8+ in order to see juts how well they stack up against each other as far as outright memory management is concerned.
Simply, the Galaxy S8+ is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 Plus built with a quad-core Apple A10 Fusion and 3GB of RAM keeping it ticking along very nicely indeed.
Now, the test that carried out involved launching one app after another and timing how long it took to load one full “lap.” After wards, the same suite of apps was opened again, this time from RAM.
So, with Samsung‘s hardware the beefier of the two, does that translate to better performance? Not exactly.
As tests show up very fairly, the iPhone actually more than holds its own and bests the Galaxy S8+ in many cases, especially when running/loading apps directly from RAM rather than having to launch them afresh. Worth checking it out and the full video is only a few minutes long, so from your point of view on whether this PhoneBuff’s test is a good real-world indicator of performance, or if it is, whether it is enough to stop the Galaxy S8+ from selling well ahead of the iPhone 8’s launch later this year.
Confused? Not to be. This is not the only video clips available on the internet when comparing both the Galaxy S8+ RAM and iPhone 7 Plus RAM, but actually is not accurate enough. Check out every single test and decide whether to buy Galaxy S8+ or wait for the iPhone 8 with a different design, camera and display.
Next,the most detailed camera shootout we’ve seen between the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7 Plus has been published, and the results are quite surprising.
Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus is widely recognized as being one of the best camera phones in the world, though bested only be the Google Pixel in some scenerios. In testing Galaxy S8, however, we found that Samsung’s Galaxy S8 camera actually outshines the 7 Plus as well in a number of different aspects – particularly in good outdoor lighting.
Published this week by Tom’s Guide, the camera comparison offers side-by-side image samples taken by both flagship phones in a number of different scenes. Both device’s camera outshines the other in certain situations, but overall, the iPhone 7 Plus seems to have a clear edge in this particular test.
Looking at the outdoor camera test, the clear winner is the Galaxy S8.
But here is an outdoor macro, and you can see that the color reproduction in the iPhone 7 Plus photo is clearly superior:
Definitely, there are some checks in the win column for each phone in the showdown, and things getting more interesting. The source gives the edge to the Galaxy S8 in the end, but we actually disagree based on the site’s own photo samples.
The rear camera on the Galaxy S8 is the same camera from last year’s Galaxy S7, but Samsung did upgrade the front-facing cam on this year’s new model. Despite the new and improved optics, the iPhone 7 Plus captured a much better selfie in this test. A few other comparisons where the blog named Samsung’s phone the winner were actually better on the iPhone 7 Plus, to our eyes at least.
