iPhone 12 Vs Samsung Galaxy S8! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 28, 2020

Welcome back everyone time to do another comparison this time around between the iphone 12 a brand new phone versus a really random old phone the galaxy s8 now i love this phone i think it was great and i've already done like a lot of tests between these actually but not a full comparison so let's go and get into it now the samsung galaxy s8 came out in 2017 so it's not a brand new phone anymore it's pretty old as of this point the iphone 12 is a brand new phone this phone you can pick up for like

I feel like a hundred and something dollars on a lot of places the iphone 12 costs 829 brand new and i'll find the cheapest ones of both and link them down in the description you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side you may be able to see that i really don't think one is way bigger than the other one maybe the galaxy s8 is a little bit you know slimmer on the size the iphone 12 is a little bit wider and i feel like the iphone 12 maybe the bigger phone overall

The samsung galaxy s8 has that 5.8 inch super amoled display it's 1440p and it was a pretty good panel and i still think it's actually pretty decent now my specific phone has a bunch of burning on it so it doesn't really look brand new anymore but i still think it's a really good panel for the most part it gets the job done you know you have a little bit of bezel on the top and bottom but this phone came on in 2017 the same time the iphone 10 came out and i personally do feel like that this

Phone brought a lot to the table at that time and so did the iphone 10 the iphone x design obviously is still recycled for the most part with the iphone 12 but the galaxy s8 doesn't even look that old if i'm being completely honest i think the panel looks pretty decent the iphone 12 on the other hand has that 6.1 inch super retina xtr oled panel and this resolution is 1170×2532 now it's a good panel you know you have the notch you have a lot of things going for it too but i

Still feel like the galaxy s8 panel is pretty decent at least compared to the age and everything that it is in the price tag it's a pretty good phone and it's a pretty well built screen and i really do like how the screen kind of occurs to the side on the galaxy s8 the iphone 12 doesn't really have that feature so definitely when it comes down to the front i think the galaxy s8 may win in terms of the panel but i like the way the iphone 12 has the flat sides and everything which i'm already used to like i

Forgot that's even like a new thing i'm so used to it already in terms of the thinness of both the iphone 12 as you can see maybe a little bit thinner than the galaxy s8 or the galaxy s8 is better than the iphone 12 and because of the curve display gives the edge that it is thinner where the iphone 12 just you're feeling the thickest part at all points so i kind of feel like the galaxy s8 is thinner by a little bit and on the back you have a dual camera setup on the iphone 12 single camera

Setup on the galaxy s8 fingerprint sensor glass backs on both and wireless charging on both as well so definitely when it comes down to the outside they kind of feel more or less the same i don't think there's a big difference they both feel very premium you have the micro sd card slot support on the galaxy s8 which is really cool you have ip certification on both but the ip certification is better on the iphone 12 which is also something important to note but in terms of everything else in the

Way they feel i kind of feel like the galaxy s8 may feel a little bit more premium even though the iphone self has the flat size and everything i kind of feel like because of the way this phone kind of curves on the sides and everything and the way it feels i might i may have to give the edge to the galaxy s8 for feeling better even on the iphone 12 is probably the better phone overall so in terms of that that pretty much covers up the outside now software wise android ios if you like android get this one if you feel like i always get this one but i will

Tell you though there is a pretty big difference the iphone 12 is going to be getting support for a much longer time than the galaxy s8 the s8 is pretty much done getting support it's stopped at one ui one it's not getting one ui two it's not getting one ui three and even customer i mean this phone is not a easy thing you have to have like the exynos version and i don't have it i have the snapdragon one so the iphone 12 pretty much wins here in terms of software support for sure now let's go and do a little bit of a speed

Comparison between them the samsung galaxy s8 has the qualcomm snapdragon 835 chipset octa-core cpu with four gigabytes of ram where the iphone 12 has that apple a14 bionic chip with four gigabytes of ram as well so let's go and see which one is the faster one between both of these okay now that we're back all the apps are cleared out on there and of course they're not cleared up on the iphone 12 so let me go and clear these out okay i was going to do the app store but it's not working out well let me go and clear up this

Okay we're good phone calls three two one and i may have clicked this one a little bit early on but they were still going to be about the same we can go and just load up some random website let's just do whatever it is let's just do google three two one let's see which one those are faster probably this one i don't really know maybe the iphone 12 that's a dumb one let's just load up a bunch of these third party apps and get into it let's do fruit ninja three two one now we did get an update recently so it may be a little weird

But look at the animation speed just look at everything overall i mean it's definitely smoother on the on the iphone 12 and it did take a little while extra on the galaxy s8 to finally get into it but definitely the iphone 12 was faster and smoother there as well which is huge let's do bofa three two one and again when i click on it it takes a noticeable second on the galaxy s8 however it did open it up faster which is very surprising i was not expecting that let's do netflix three two one

And again i'm not really too sure i'm not really too sure what happened here maybe the iphone 12 was the faster one again this was the smoother phone in my opinion let's do snake vs blocks three two one sorry i just sneezed the iphone 12 was faster there the galaxy s8 a little bit behind and i'll tell you what though the galaxy s8 is surprisingly doing better than what i thought and definitely from this angle the galaxy s8 panel looks a little bit better than the iphone 12 which is very weird

Let's do snapchat three two one now i'm logged in here so it's probably gonna be faster yeah like i stated facebook three two one and again faster on the iphone 12 but the animation is also smoother on the iphone 12 which is very important instagram three two one um not really too sure which one is faster there i kind of looked away for a second paper out two three two one now these are on two different versions and you know we'll just kind of keep it at that but again i think i'm actually surprised

About the galaxy s8 again it even loaded up faster there that phone was actually much more surprising than i thought it wasn't expecting to be this fast but i don't know if the iphone 12 is this slower the galaxy s8 is this fast i think the galaxy i said is faster than i thought we can do thank you three two one and again galaxy s8 is the faster one there and gameplay wise i think they're going to be about the same and that's i don't know what to tell you about this and i don't wasn't expecting

The galaxy s8 to do this well let's do example one two three two one and the iphone 12 is faster there the galaxy s8 a little bit behind but again like i stated the galaxy s8 is doing far better than what i was expecting this is pretty not not a huge difference between them at all like i'm actually really happy about the way the galaxy s8 is performing even though the iphone 12 may be faster and smoother the galaxy s8 came out in 2017 for it to be even kind of comparable it's pretty impressive in my

Opinion so that one i'll probably give to the iphone 12 for being a little bit faster stack three two one and i think the iphone 12 was a little bit faster there the galaxy s8 as stated before was a little bit behind twitter321 again the iphone 12 was the faster one and i can definitely tell you from the few apps that i tested i'll do a full comparison if you guys want to see it i'm actually really surprised about how well the galaxy s8 was performing and i honestly don't know if one was a way

Better performing device than the other one like that this is actually very surprising you know typically i'm able to see like phones from this day and age like this long ago that there's some pretty big differences maybe in terms of ram management as you guys saw there is a bigger difference there the iphone 12 was able to keep that in the background the galaxy s8 was not able to keep that in the background but still as of this day and age like

It's very surprising how well the galaxy is performing for a 2017 phone i think in terms of the speed and app opening the iphone 12 maybe the smoother and better one in terms of ram it's probably better too but for a 2017 phone like i stated i'm actually really surprised and really happy about the iphone 12 so in terms of ram management and speed that pretty much covers it up i'll go into a little bit of a camera test between them i stated before the iphone 12 has a dual camera setup 12 megapixel wide 12 megapixel ultrawide

With the samsung galaxy s8 has a single 12 megapixel lens on the back now surprisingly in the ui department i kind of do feel like i stated before the galaxy s8 may look like it has more features than the you know iphone 12. you have portrait mode and different things like that on the iphone 12. the galaxy s8 is pretty standard when it comes down to the features that it has so you have a lot of features you have video obviously like on both um i feel like the biggest difference would probably

Come in terms of the front camera you have an 8 megapixel sensor here 12 megapixel sensor here you can do 4k 60 here where you can only do 1440p here if anybody's going to do that now i stated before i've always felt like the galaxy s8 camera was pretty decent and this camera looks really bad now because of the screen but before when i was using it and everything like that i've had a pretty good experience you know i never really had any problems with it of course it's not like the best panel it's not the best

You know camera ever but i feel like the biggest downside is the 4k 30 on the back camera but also the front camera it's not really the best and that is probably one of the bigger differences in one of the problems with this specific device on the iphone 12 on the other hand you're getting a better back camera you're getting an ultra white sensor you're getting 4k 60 and you're getting 4k 60 on the front camera as well as things like you know portrait mode night mode all that stuff the galaxy s8 unfortunately doesn't have

It it could support it and there may be some features on the app store you know some like google play apps that you know people have you know made that you can go and use on this specific camera but i think for a majority of people this phone is probably the better one and and i don't really think people care too much about the camera quality as much apple thinks people care about so i think for sure the camera is probably better on the iphone 12. the galaxy s8 camera is still pretty good for the most part

Now ending it off with the battery life the galaxy s8 has a 3000mah battery the iphone 12 has a 2815 million power battery and i've already done a battery comparison between these and i was able to pretty much see that the iphone so i've had better battery life which is surprising because s8 actually has a bigger battery but there wasn't even that big of a difference between these two which was really surprising so i'll post that video whenever probably on my second channel but to kind of sum

Up this video and to answer the question should you pick up the galaxy s8 should you pick up the iphone 12 let me tell you some pros and cons with the galaxy s8 man this phone really surprised me today i wasn't expecting it to be like blown away or anything like that i've talked about the galaxy s8 for years and i can definitely tell you there's still a lot of pros with this specific device you're getting a really good screen i think the screen on the galaxy s8 is better than the iphone 12

You're getting a really good build quality like i said i think it's better on the galaxy s8 than the iphone 12 micro sd card slot ip certification fingerprint sensor if you're into that a pretty good camera really decent performance still you know i'm actually really surprised about the performance of this phone still and i just feel like it's a pretty good priced phone too you know for the whatever price it was that you know around 100 200 less than 200 it's really not that bad of a phone you still have usb-c headphone jack all that

Stuff there's just a couple of cons that make me not probably recommend it to a lot of people things like you know the outdated software it's still on android 9. if you get the xnose version and you're able to custom rom then go for it but android 9 is going to be outdated very soon we're already on android 11. android 12 is probably going to come on a couple of months or debate or whatever so it's probably not going to be the best choice to stick with the galaxy s8

And that's where i think something like an iphone 12 could probably come into play you know you're getting better i wouldn't say better build quality but a different design from previous iphones still a really good build quality really good screen better performance i would say on the iphone 12 and the galaxy s8 the longer lasting support which is huge you don't want a phone that's going to be outdated tomorrow if you get the galaxy s8 it's already outdated the iphone 12 is going to be lasting for years and years and years

You're getting like i said smooth performance better camera potentially on the iphone 12 than on the galaxy s8 from what i was able to see high resolution videos at 4k at 60 even on the front camera high resolution videos and potentially better battery life from what i was able to see but if you were able to use the galaxy s8 for this long i still think this is a decent phone i'm actually like i said surprised about it but i think the iphone 12 is probably the better way to go for a majority of people

If you own a galaxy s8 going to the iphone 12 is probably the best thing to do in my opinion but that really pretty much covers it up like i said if you want to pick either of these ones up links will be down in the description but that pretty much covers it up if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button on me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount so me so much if you
