Smartphone Trend analysis 2017 part-4

Do we need an introduction here? Well, as we’ve been looking upon the different smartphones in the last few days, the absence of Apple must have been hovering in everyone’s mind. Don’t worry, it is finally here!

in everyone’s mind. Don’t worry, it is finally here!

Apple

Here we have the iPhone 8/Plus – most likely one amongst the most anticipated smartphones of the year. If you favour iOS to Android and do not wish to splash out on the iPhone X, this could be your first choice.

Apple has chosen to stay with the same design to the iPhone 7, swapping the out the all-metal case for a glass back and making it heavier (more premium feeling). there’s an excellent new Gold colour, and to top it off, the glass casing permits Apple to feature wireless charging. The recent S8 design will make the iPhone 8 feel slightly dated now, however.

It’s inside where the iPhone 8 plus has received the largest overhaul – now packing Apple’s blazing quick and unrivalled A11 Bionic processor which in synthetic benchmark runs scores almost twice that of the processors inside the Android flagships. the dual camera has conjointly received a major upgrade, now an improved sensor and Optical Image Stabilization in both the lenses, moreover as being the first phone to support recording videos at 4K 60FPS that single-handedly is one amongst the most effective features of the device.

Coming to the iPhone X, is it the best phone this year? Duh! however only by a whisker. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is so close (especially if you favour Android), whereas Apple’s own iPhone 8 plus offers you most of the iPhone X technology without the additional price. In the end, though, it is the ultra-desirability of the iPhone X that wins it.

The first factor that strikes you concerning the design is, obviously, the 5.8-inch AMOLED screen.  It’s definitely true that the edge-to-edge screen looks absolutely gorgeous, both from a style perspective and from a technology viewpoint.

Of course, there is also the top ‘notch’. This will invade the screen slightly, particularly once you wish to be absolutely immersed in something, however, call me crazy – I quite am fond of it. It provides the phone with a visual identity.

Aside from the screen, you have Apple’s blazing quick A11 Bionic processor, an incredible dual camera with portrait lighting mode, and Face ID (which really works very well).

It’s the marriage of software and hardware, one thing that Apple’s invariably been sensible at, that’s therefore effective here and that’s particularly the case when it comes to Face ID.

Basically, it is the refresh the iPhone required, and Apple did justice by making an amazing smartphone which is undeniably one of the best pieces of technology on the market right now.
