Consumer Reports recommends the Samsung Galaxy S7 over the Apple iPhone 8
Consumer Reports gave the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8+ each a score of 81. The Apple iPhone 8 and the Galaxy S7 both tied with scores of 80. Despite the tie, the magazine recommended that smartphone buyers purchase the older Galaxy S7 over the brand spanking new iPhone 8 because of its longer battery life and better call quality. Following the Apple iPhone 8, Consumer Reports had the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6. The latter two devices also were given a score of 80.
Consumer response to the Apple iPhone 8 has not been typical for a brand new iPhone. Because some potential buyers are waiting to check out the Apple iPhone X first before making a decision, some iPhone 8 purchases might have been deferred for the moment, only to take place after the November 3rd launch of the tenth anniversary model. Last week, we told you that an in-store survey conducted by a securities house revealed that in the U.S., the iPhone 7 is outselling the iPhone 8.
