First off allow me to stress these phones are not phones anymore. They have become a part of first world evolution. This therefore means you can sneer all you like, but you’re still interested to see the new batch; and thats the point.
What you are paying for these behemoths can only be explained through a statement;
“Meet the new boss, same as the old, old boss.”
Allow me to wallop you with rumoured steroid-specification then I’ll end on a bombshell. The price.

The issue to address here; put simply is that both contraptions looks extremely beautiful, hideously unpractical with an ungainly screen size which will perhaps only benefit teenage boys aggressively going through puberty.
The “Home” button is to be removed, and replaced with an in-screen fingerprint scanner. It seems Apple is attempting to perfect the art of ‘offering less, for more.’
Which brings me to the iPhones price, in which there is no easy way to say this. The iPhone 8 will start at a trouser troubling £800.00, or $1,001.00 if you live across the Atlantic pond. The Galaxy cost has relieved us a little with speculated prices for £700.00 or $960.00, leaving you $40 to purchase a blanket to keep you warm when your landlord kicks you out for not paying the rent.
I stress, all details outlined have been sheer calculated speculation (which is dignifiably usually correct.) However, you can take comfort here (insert bias here), whilst Apple use software-updates to slow down your “older” iPhone 6/7, a Samsung owner with their Note 3 can simply say “Hmm, no. No, definitely not. Thank you anyway.”
