iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S8?


iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S8?


The iPhone X is a reality, and Apple has their latest flagship sporting a completely "new" design, a massive screen, vastly improved specs and lots of features, that many would say already exist in other phones.
It’s set to be a great phone, but the iPhone X isn’t the first impressive handset to land this year, as the monstrous Samsung Galaxy S8 has had a major head-start.
That too has a big screen, a great design and loads of high-tech features – so just how do these two phones compare? To answer that we’ve put them head to head across a range of categories.

Design

The iPhone X has quite a lot in common with the Samsung Galaxy S8 from a design perspective, as both phones have a metal frame and a glass back, as well as hardly any bezel around their screens.
In the iPhone X’s case the only real bezel is a small 'notch' at the top of the display, where you’ll find the front-facing camera and sensors. The Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t quite as free of clutter, with a slim strip above and below the screen, but there’s still little other than the display on the front.
The biggest difference when viewing the phones front-on though is that the Samsung Galaxy S8’s display curves around the edges, while the iPhone X’s doesn’t.
From the back both phones are fairly plain-looking, with the main element being a single-lens camera and fingerprint scanner in the Galaxy S8’s case, and a dual-lens camera in the iPhone X’s, with both phones also sporting company logos on the rear.
Both phones are more durable than they might look, as the Galaxy S8 is IP68-certified, meaning it can be submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes, while the iPhone X is apparently water- and dust-resistant to a 'microscopic' level.
Perhaps the most obvious visual difference though is the colors you can get these two phones in. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is available in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue and Maple Gold (though not all shades are available everywhere), while the iPhone X is launching in just Space Gray and Silver.

Display

Both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 have 5.8-inch OLED screens, and both also support HDR content and fill almost the entire front of the phone, so there’s a lot of similarity there, but there are plenty of differences too, the most immediately obvious being the fact that the S8’s is curved, while the iPhone X’s is flat.
They’re also different resolutions, with the iPhone X coming in at 2436 x 1125 for 458 pixels per inch, while the Samsung Galaxy S8’s screen is 1440 x 2960 for 570 pixels per inch, so Samsung’s phone is higher-resolution and sharper.
But the iPhone X has a True Tone display, which adjusts the white balance to suit your environment.
Other differences include the ways you can interact with their screens. The iPhone X has 3D Touch, which lets you display different menus or interact with apps in different ways depending on whether you use a light or heavy tap. It also has gesture controls in place of the home button.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 meanwhile lets you swipe across the curved edges to bring up menus and shortcuts to apps, contacts or any number of other things you might want quick access to.

OS and Power

The iPhone uses Apple’s brand-new A11 Bionic chipset. It’s a six-core one and by far Apple's fastest mobile chipset yet. There's no word yet on how much RAM the iPhone X has, but rumors pegged it at 3GB.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 meanwhile has an octa-core chipset (a Snapdragon 835 in the US or an Exynos 8895 elsewhere) and 4GB of RAM.
While those numbers might sound bigger, Apple’s phones never fail to impress from a power perspective, so we’re confident the iPhone X will give the S8 a run for its money. We’ll let you know exactly how powerful it seems once we’ve had some time with it.

While the Galaxy S8 is very powerful and the iPhone X almost certainly is too, one key difference between them is the amount of storage they have. For the iPhone X you can choose between a 64GB and 256GB.
For the Samsung Galaxy S8 there’s only a 64GB size, but you also get a microSD card slot with support for cards of up to 256GB, which the iPhone X doesn’t have.
And of course, the two phones also have different operating systems. The iPhone X runs iOS 11, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 runs Android Nougat.
Both are very polished, modern mobile operating systems and both phones are likely to get updated to new OS versions – though the iPhone X will likely get them on day one, while the S8 will have to wait, as it’s currently doing for Android Oreo.

Camera and Battery

The iPhone X has a 12MP dual-lens camera, like the iPhone 7 Plus, although not exactly like it, as Apple’s new camera has a few new skills.
As well as being usable to create a bokeh effect by blurring the background of images, the iPhone X’s camera also has optical image stabilization on both lenses, to help keep your shots steady and in focus.
Video has also been upgraded, with 4K video at able to be shot at up to 60fps and 1080p slo-mo video at 240fps.
More significantly though, it also sports augmented reality (AR) features opening up a world of new opportunities in apps, from seeing constellations come to life in front of you to playing AR games on your table.
Around the front there's a 7MP camera, which also has the ability to use depth of field effects. And it includes a 3D face scanner, so you can unlock your phone just by looking at it. This is supposedly very advanced, as it should be able to recognize you even if you change your hair or wear a hat, yet won't be fooled by a picture.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 just has a single lens 12MP camera on the back, but it too includes optical image stabilization and can take great, detailed shots, helped by its large f/1.7 aperture, which means more light can get in than on many smartphone cameras. 4K video is capped at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps, but there’s also a capable 8MP front-facing camera.
And it has a face scanner of its own, though it’s less advanced than Apple’s take, as it only scans a 2D image of your face.
Apple hasn’t revealed the iPhone X’s battery size, but has said it will last for 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7. It also supports wireless charging, which is a first for an Apple phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 3,000mAh battery and that too supports wireless charging, as well as fast charging. In our tests, we found it to comfortably last a day or more of moderate use between charges, but like so many other phones you’ll probably need to plug it in when you go to bed.

Price

The iPhone X starts at $999/£999/AU$1,579 for the 64GB model and will also be available in a 256GB size for $1,149/£1,149/AU$1,829.
That’s a shitload of money. Even more in fact than the Samsung Galaxy S8, which costs $725/£639/AU$1,199, though can be found for less if you shop around.

Final Thoughts

These two behemoths are more similar than you might expect, as both the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S8 have a 5.8-inch screen, a glass back, water resistance, wireless charging and lots of power.
We wouldn't say the differences are that big. S8 has already applied those features to its phone, while iphone is now presenting them as something new. The iPhone X is flat while the Galaxy S8 is curved, the iPhone X has a dual-lens camera while the Galaxy S8’s is a single lens one, the iPhone X has more storage but no microSD card slot, and the iPhone X runs iOS, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 runs Android. And those are just the headline differences.
As for which is better, well, it's totally up to you. Both are expensive (while iphone is more), similar features, therefore whichever catches your eye better, that would be your choice.

3D Glasses - Passive Polarized or Active Shutter?



Although 3D viewing at home has fallen out of favor with TV makers and many consumers, there is still a small-but-loyal fan base, and there are still millions of sets in use around the world and the 3D viewing option is still available on many video projectors, and, there is still a flow of 3D movie titles available on Blu-ray Disc.
What all 3D TVs and video projectors have in common is that you need special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

What 3D TVs and Glasses Do

3D TVs and Video Projectors work by accepting an incoming 3D signal that is encoded by the content provider, which can be sent in several different ways. The TV or projector has an internal decoder that can translate the type of 3D encoding used and displays the left and right eye information on the TV or projection screen in such a way that it appears to look like two overlapping images that look slightly out of focus.
One image is intended to be seen only by the left eye, while the other image is intended to only be seen by the right eye. In order to view this image properly, the viewer must wear glasses that are specially designed to receive the separate images and pass them properly to the left and right eye.
3D glasses work by providing a separate image to each eye. The brain combines the two overlapping images into a single image, which appears to be in 3D.

Types of 3D Glasses

  • Passive Polarized Glasses: These glasses look and wear much like sunglasses and require no additional power to work. They usually have enough front space to place over existing eyeglasses for those that need to. These type of glasses are inexpensive to manufacture and can range in price from $5 to $25 for each pair depending on the frame style (rigid vs flexible, plastic vs metal).
  • Active Shutter Glasses: These glasses are slightly bulkier than passive glasses, since they have batteries (some use watch batteries, others provide rechargeable batteries), on/off button, and a transmitter that syncs the rapidly moving shutters for each eye with the onscreen display rate. These type of glasses are also more expensive than passive polarized glasses, ranging in price from $75 to $150 depending on the manufacturer.

    Advantages of Passive Polarized 3D Glasses:

    • Lightweight
    • Inexpensive - About one third, to one-quarter the price of Active Shutter glasses.
    • No flickering - which means less discomfort and eye fatigue over long view periods.

    Disadvantage of Passive Polarized 3D Glasses

    • The 3D image that is viewed is one-half the resolution of a 2D image displayed on the same television (although proponents of passive glasses dispute this). This is because both left and right eye images are displayed on the screen at the same time. 
    • The presence of horizontal lines on the screen and some jaggies artifacts on the edges of objects may be noticeable, mostly with text and straight line geometric shapes.

    The Advantage of Active Shutter 3D Glasses:

    • The 3D image resolution is the same as the 2D image displayed on the same television. This is because the left and right eye images are displayed in a sequential fashion, in synch with TV or projector's screen refresh rate and the opening and closing of the LCD shutters in the glasses.

    Disadvantages of Active Shutter 3D Glasses:

    • Flickering due to rapid opening and closing of the LCD shutters may be detectable by some viewers, causing discomfort.
    • Heavier and Bulkier than Passive Glasses
    • Battery power required.
    • Expensive - Two or three times the price of Passive Polarized Glasses.

    The Glasses Have to Match the TV or Video Projector

    Depending on the brand or model TV/video projector you purchase will determine which type of 3D glasses are required.
    When 3D TV was introduced, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sharp took the Active Shutter glasses route for LCD, Plasma, and DLP televisions (both Plasma and DLP TVs have been discontinued), while LG and Vizio promoted Passive Glasses for 3D LCD TVs, and Toshiba, and Vizio although mostly using passive glasses, some their LCD TVs did use Active Shutter Glasses.
    To make things even more confusing, Sony used mostly the Active system but offered some TVs that use Passive.
    Due to the technology used to display images on Plasma TVs, only Active Shutter glasses can be used. However, both Active Shutter and Passive Glasses can be used with LCD and OLED TVs - the choice was up to the manufacturer.
    Consumer based 3D-enabled video projectors require the use of Active Shutter 3D glasses. This allows the projector to be used with any type of screen or flat white wall.
    Some manufacturers provided glasses with the set or projector or offered them as an accessory that had to be purchased separately. Although production of 3D TVs has ended, 3D glasses are still available, but prices will vary. As mentioned previously, active shutter glasses will be more expensive (probably $75-$150 a pair) than passive polarized glasses ($5-$25 a pair).
    Also, another factor to take into consideration is that glasses that are branded for one brand of TV or video projector, may not work another's 3D-TV or video projector. In other words, if you have a Samsung 3D-TV, your Samsung 3D glasses will not work with Panasonic's 3D-TVs. So, if you and your neighbors have different brand 3D-TVs, you will, in most cases, they will not be able to borrow each other's 3D glasses.

    3D Without Glasses is Possible But Not Common

    There are technologies that enable viewing of 3D images on a TV (but not video projectors) without glasses. Such special application video displays exist, usually referred to as "AutoStereoscopic Displays". These displays are expensive and, in most cases, you have to stand or sit right in the center or at a very narrow-angle from the center to get the best viewing experience, so they are not good for group viewing.
    However, progress has been made as no-glasses 3D is becoming available on some smartphones, portable game devices, and there are a limited number of large screen TVs available for both consumers and commercial use from Stream TV networks and IZON technologies.

    Samsung swim-tracking Gear Fit 2 Pro


    Accompanying the new Gear Sport smartwatch, Samsung is introducing a new fitness band, in the shape of the Gear Fit2 Pro, that shares the same highlight feature of being able to track swimming. In terms of appearance and basic specs, this is no great departure from the Gear Fit2 that the Pro is replacing, but the big deal is that Samsung has upgraded the waterproofing to a depth of 50 meters and it’s also added a continuous heart rate tracker that will keep a constant watchful eye on your life signals. Another IFA 2017 debutant from Samsung’s wearables division is the Gear IconX 2018 edition: a massive upgrade over the 2016 wireless earbuds that could only muster 1.5 hours of wireless music streaming. The new IconX buds can last up to 5 hours streaming, or 7 hours when playing directly from their onboard storage.




    Priced at $199 and set for retail availability on September 15th, the Gear Fit2 Pro is quite an appealing little watch replacement for exercise-tracking enthusiasts. Its elongated and curved AMOLED screen has really nice contrast, and Samsung is making the most of it with some truly appealing watch faces that highlight steps, elevation, and calorie consumption measured during the day. I’m still highly dubious about any device that claims to accurately measure calories, and when I challenged Samsung to specify how accurate it thinks its wearables are, the company said it had nothing available to publish. But hey, if you just need a metric for identifying the differences in intensity and duration of your exercise each day, it will probably suffice.

    Android 8.0 Oreo is now rolling out

    Android 8.0 Oreo the final version that was made official a few days back, has started rolling out to Pixel and Nexus devices enrolled in the Android Beta program. Yesterday, Verizon started rolling out the same build of Oreo to Pixel and Pixel XL units it's sold.

    In the meantime, the Oreo update has been spotted arriving on many more carriers across the world, for supported Pixel and Nexus devices - which are the Pixel and Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus Player. So at this point the rollout is pretty much hitting every device that Google's in charge of, software-wise.



    The company has also posted the usual factory images and OTA zip files for anyone to download (check out the Source links below). You can install the OTA zip if you're tired of waiting to receive the update through an actual over-the-air rollout. Though if you own a supported device and haven't yet seen a notification regarding the new software, it's best to first try and manually check by going to the relevant Settings menu.

    The build number is OPR6.170623.011 for Pixels and Pixel XLs on Bell, Telus, Telstra, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and Rogers/Fido, and OPR6.170623.012 for every other carrier. The Nexus 6P gets the build ending in 013, but Google notes this is not for T-Mobile, US Cellular, or Fi - but hasn't yet provided an alternative download. The Nexus 5X's build is 013 also, while the Pixel C gets 010 and the Nexus Player gets nothing at this point - hopefully it won't be too long before the console sees its update too.
