Which one is best for you?
iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are both great-looking phones with beautiful full-screen OLED displays – and either one is guaranteed to impress.
The S8 Plus is slightly larger – as you’d expect for a Plus model. iPhone XS, on the other hand, has some extra features that you’d expect from a more recent phone. It has a dual lens camera, for example – which gives a range of options including optical zoom, so you can get closer to your subject without loss of quality. Plus, the TrueDepth front camera lets you map your expressions onto 3D Animoji (great for sharing with friends) or open your phone securely with a glance.
Galaxy S8 Plus still has a lot going for it. Iris recognition lets you get to your apps without remembering a code – and the camera takes impressive pictures even in low light, thanks to the large pixels. Before you decide, be sure to check our quick guide to the top features.
