The iPhone 8 Plus promises a more refined background blur effect, whereas the Note 8 provides filters such as pro-mode and food-mode. So, if you’re someone who loves to share their cooking abilities across social media, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be the perfect choice for you.

Security: Better than ever

Keeping your personal information safe on your smartphone is a definite focus, and between the two, the Note 8 is certainly impressive when it comes to security features.

Storage: Save more

Photo hoarder? If it’s the memory you’re after, the Note 8 offers a capacity of up to 256GB, but you would have to purchase an additional memory card. Whereas the iPhone 8 Plus can provide storage space up to 256GB without having to purchase a memory card.

Additional features: Just to top it off

Both the iOS and Android platforms have matured a lot throughout the years, but they still manage to come up with new innovations.
