iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy S8

Which one is best for you?

iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy S8 are a close match for each other in many ways. The Galaxy S8 has a slightly larger screen, even though it’s not billed as a large format phone, and thanks to the edge-to-edge design is actually smaller in size – so it’ll fit more easily into your pocket.

iPhone S7 Plus has the bonus of a dual lens camera, which can zoom in to a distant object without loss of quality, or create professional effect with a simple swipe and select. The S8 camera has a lot going for it too. It takes multiple shots when you shoot, and selects the best automatically – so you get better results without trying.

Both are great-looking phones with a wealth of features to explore – see our quick summary to help you choose.
