While we are talking about the high-end price range for all the smartphones under consideration, let’s see how the Indian pricing of these models stacks up against each other.
1. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Size
If you’re looking for the absolute biggest phone you can buy, Samsung wins here. It’s Note 8 has a whopping 6.3-inch display, a good deal larger than the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch one. But screen size doesn’t tell the whole story.
- Note 8 : 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm
- iPhone 8 Plus : 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.5 mm
- iPhone X : 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm

2. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Display
Both the Note 8 and the iPhone X feature remarkable displays, with the iPhone X representing Apple’s first foray into OLED screens. Samsung edges the iPhone X when it comes to resolution, but we’ll need to compare the two in person to see which comes out on top when it comes to color and brightness. In pure numbers, however, Samsung takes the crown, both in size and resolution:
- Note 8 : 6.3-inch, 2960 x 1440 Super AMOLED, HDR, 532ppi
- iPhone 8 Plus : 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 LCD, 401ppi
- iPhone X : 5.8-inch, 2436 x 1125 OLED, HDR, 458ppi
3. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Performance
Comparing iPhones to Galaxy phones has never been an apples to apples comparison, but on paper, Apple’s A11 Bionic chip is a screamer. With six cores and 4.3 billion transistors, it looks to give the Note 8’s Snapdragon 835 a real run for its money, at least in terms of raw power. In real-world use, however, the phones will be pretty close in speed, but the Note 8’s 6GB of RAM could pull it closer in benchmarks.
- Note 8 : Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (octo-core, 10nm, up to 2.45GHz)
- iPhone 8 Plus : A11 Bionic chip (septa-core)
- iPhone X : A11 Bionic chip (septa-core)
4. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Battery
We won’t know exactly how big the new iPhones’ batteries are until iFixit’s customary tear-down, but based on Apple’s claims, the iPhone 8 Plus will last “about the same” as the 7 Plus, while the X will last “up to two hours longer,” and both phones now support Qi wireless charging like the Note 8. The Note 8’s 3,300mAH battery gets around 9 hours of real-world use, more than enough to get through a full day of use, and the 7 Plus was equally long-lasting.
5. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Storage
All three phones offer a base model with 64GB of storage. However, the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X add a 256GB tier that isn’t available on the Note 8 (at least not in the U.S. anyway). However, the Note 8 includes a microSD slot so you can upgrade the storage as much as you’d like, and for a lot less than the $150 Apple is charging for 192 extra gigs of storage.
6. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Camera
Apple and Samsung have been slugging it out over camera performance for generations of phones, and this year is no different. Let’s start with the specs:
- Note 8 : Dual 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, f/1.7 and f/2.4, dual optical image stabilization, 2X optical zoom
- iPhone 8 Plus : Dual 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, f/1.8 and f/2.8, optical image stabilization on main lens, 2X optical zoom
- iPhone X : Dual 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, f/1.8 and f/2.4, dual optical image stabilization, 2X optical zoom
7. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: AR and VR
The Bionic in the iPhones’ new A11 chip means it has a neural engine with a dual-core design that performs up to 600 billion operations per second for real-time processing to help with Face ID, Animoji, and augmented reality. Samsung doesn’t specifically tout any AR benefits of the Note 8, but Google’s new ARCore will allow the phone to take advantage of the emerging tech, but it remains to be seen if it will be as advanced as Apple’s ARKit. The Note 8 does beat the iPhone 8 Plus and X when it comes to VR, however. Pop the phone into a Gear VR headset and you’ll be able to watch 360-degree videos and play immersive games, something no iPhone can do yet.

8. iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Biometrics
The iPhone 8 Plus includes the standard Touch ID fingerprint-scanning sensor. However, since Apple has eliminated the home button on the iPhone X, that phone doesn’t have Touch ID. In its place is Face ID, which uses the TrueDepth camera system to build a “unique facial map.” The Note 8 features an array of options for unlocking your phones, including fingerprint, retina, and face.
