      @Shahzeb Raja the OnePlus 6 is faster than the iPhone 10 so if he did a speed test it wouldn't even be fair to the 7

    Android phones slowing down is a lie spread by Apple lovers to justify spending soooooo much more money on their iPhones

    Had the iPhone 7 in black 128gb since it’s release. Still got it. It’s still snappy and does most of what the newer iPhones do. Battery life is awful though. Exactly the same as the 8 but doesn’t have wireless charging. Have to say I want to upgrade soon though! Had the screen replaced etc and it feels very old. But a brand new iPhone 7 in 2019 would be a beast still...

    I've had the Galaxy S1, S4, S5, and now currently the S8...Every Galaxy I've owned has turned into a piece of junk after about 1-2 years.
    I'm hearing Samsung is now making their phones to last longer but we'll see...If I dont get 3-4 years out of this S8 I'm probably gonna switch to iPhone.
    Every iPhone owner I've know has managed to keep an iPhone about 4 years before they've had to get a new one.

    My friends who took s7,s8 already changed their phones due to slow performance.

    The claims you hear are weird, I always heard backwards. Samsungs = 0 effect overtime, even apple admitted iPhones slow down. I dont get his logic.

    It's no longer apple is the fastest I use a Huawei mate 10 lite which is their budget phone which does run so smoothly so those expensive phones can't be slower

    I love both.
    Android has lots of innovation, altough in 2018, they have been lacking.
    But look at all the boss phones. The Porche Design Mate RS (it deserves a capital lettered "the"), them chinese joints etc
    I would personally recommend an older apple iPhone if someone goes on a contract, but doesnt have that much money to buy a flagship. Yes, they'll look old, but the support, and optimalization just wipes the competition. And Apple only degrades your phone, if your battery health is under 86%. If you buy a phone on contract, you'll get a brand new one, so no battery problems

    Iphone 7 for 370 euro or s8 for 400 euro ?who worth more?

  • Mihailo Anđelić

    You can not compare IOS and Android. It's obvious that IOS Is much better optimized and have better performance.

    Yet Apple admitted to intentionally slowing down their phones. I have an s7 edge and it's still as fast as the day i got it. 💁

    all android devices even google’s pixel slow down over time, samsung is not an exception and maybe the worst when it comes to slowing down
    u don’t use that s8 on daily basis for 2 years to judge it now as regular users would do and when i was looking to buy my father a phone few months ago i was choosing between iphone 7 and s8 and i looked up the internet for true reviews i saw many complains about slowing down after only 6 months of usage and severe battery drainage that’s why i decided to go for the iphone 7
