Consumer Reports Ranks Samsung Galaxy S8 Above iPhone 7 [Video]

Posted June 14, 2017 at 3:26pm by iClarified
Consumer Reports has named the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ as its top rated smartphones, besting the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung's previous generation S7 models.

The phones occupying the loftiest spots in the Consumer Reports smartphone ratings all excel at nearly everything, but there's always one top dog, and at the moment it's the Samsung Galaxy S8+, followed closely by its slightly smaller sibling, the Galaxy S8.

If you want a stunning camera, long battery life, and gorgeous display in a water-resistant package, one of these could be the right phone for you. You just have to be willing to spend the rent money on it: The S8+ starts at about $840, and the S8 at around $720.


Take a look at the video below for highlights from Consumer Reports' testing.

This is funny because not only did the iPhone 7 Plus but even the iPhone 6 Plus outperformed the Galaxy S8. Sooooo yeah. Not really sure where they are getting their data from.

They got their data from testing, we are sick and tired from the repetitive iphone design and the very tiny improvement from one model to an other, if any hacker could install ios on samsung s8, we won't be seeing or hearing about an iphone anymore .
