  1. Don't get wrong l love the look of the x. I was tempted to leave Android. Great camera to but there all pretty good these days the x is just disappointing in screen size if it was true 5.8 would be awesome. I like how Apple and others thought Samsung was too colorful with video and photos now there more natural there complaining not saturated enough. I'm going to go for the note 8. In 2 years if there is a x plus then I might swap. It's funny how Apple get away with saying it's all screen 5.8 worth but that's not all usable. Every other phone says the usable size like my note 5 it's 5.7 and that's what you get to use.

  2. I am a big fan of the Note 8 however it did not look good here and got completely outdone by the X. All of you stubborn android fans saying that the Note won here is just ridiculous I'm sorry, your clear and extreme bias leaves you with no credibility. Probably typed the comment before even watching the video tbh. And even other less stubborn and less biased note fans are in the comments saying something must be wrong with the Note in the video, making all the fanboys saying it won look even more ridiculous.

  3. I dunno, I tend to prefer more of the iPhone X pics in this video, but I do prefer some of the Note 8 shots. The conclusion about the night time videos is impossible to argue against; in this comparison anyway, there is no doubt that the iPhone X's video looks miles better than the Note 8's, though I will say that these results don't mirror my own results with my Note 8. My low light videos look much better, but still not as good as the iPhone X's.

    Overall conclusion for me is that both phones have amongst the very best cameras available on a smart phone today, with the iPhone X being just a little bit better overall than the Note 8 (though not in all individual scenarios). Camera quality is but a single factor for me in determining which phone I want to buy and so many other factors play into that decision, such as screen size and quality, software, I/O, storage options, charging options and times, battery life, signature features (like the S-Pen or FaceID), and overall design aesthetic. For me personally, i went with the Note 8, but believe me it was a very tough decision that I agonized over for weeks, and at the end of the day I was swayed mostly by my reluctance to switch to the iOS ecosystem from Android (which I have already invested in significantly over the years).

    As always, there's no need for fanboyism to come into play in this particular comparison as I truly believe that both of these phones are easily the best phones of 2017, and that neither really significantly beats the other in any one category. They are both lightning fast, gorgeous phones, with huge and stunning OLED displays, top-tier dual camera setups, and have their own killer features that lift them above the competition. You really can't go wrong with either device.

  4. How did you get portait mode front camera in galaxy note 8? My system upfate is latest fimware but i still therea no portait mode in front camera

  5. thank you for being one of the few who posted a true comparison. you're one of the 3-4 i found so far. there are many biased reviews that are popular skewing the real performance of these phones. both phones have different pros and cons it just comes down to personal preference. camera wise, w/ the note u have more options to perfect your image but by default the iphone does overall do better. iphone has more realistic skin tone, warm tone rather than cool tone which is more flattering, less noise, better stabilization when walking in video, better video specs. at night time the iphone outperforms in most aspects except for fluorescent lights. iphone also has greentish tint at times and not good white balance but overall better contrast. also pinks and purples are very saturated with the iphone. i was first sold with the note 8 but after more research, i'm going to have to go with the iphone.

  6. Another Apple fanboy… Just to be clear MITechGuy as i can see you did adjust the brightness mode for the Iphone X but didn't do that for the Note 8.
