Top 5 reasons why Africans prefer Android devices

But as the landscape continues to evolve, the new driving force in smartphone replacement is losing momentum while Chinese users are replacing their smartphones less frequently. But will it turn out to be?

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ both come with Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant, which can answer questions, help you navigate your phone, provide information about the world around you through its camera, and show content related to your habits and interests. The device is easy on the eyes and packs powerful hardware under the hood. In Silicon Valley, they just buy more devices - one for Sally, one for Joey, and one for Grandma. But the Galaxy Note 8's selfie camera can't hold a candle to Apple's depth-sensing and infrared front-facing system.

What's more, those phones found room for a fingerprint sensor too - bewilderingly bad ones, admittedly, though this could easily have been avoided by Samsung - whereas Apple's iPhone X has completely ditched Touch ID, to the dismay of many potential buyers.

This is a company obsessed with branding and image - why would it miss something so obvious? Beating rivals to cutting-edge technology is seen as key to creating the perception of global dominance and standing atop the industry.

Marking on of the biggest launch, tech giant Apple unveiled iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the smart phone at Steve Jobs Theater in the new Apple campus in California.

The Starship Foundation's mobile phone appeal started in 2009, it recycles mobile phones by turning old unwanted phones into valuable funds to support children in medical emergencies, providing a great benefit to families across the country. Animated emojis is just that. The phone runs the A11 Bionic SoC paired with 3GB of RAM.

There is no denying that the iPhone X will be a superb phone and undoubtedly the best iPhone ever made.

After the first iPhone presented the notable home button, other phone producers of the day stuck to this same pattern.

Either way, the bezel-the band of material that separates your phone's screen from its body-has all but disappeared in the last few years.

While the iPhone X looks like a highly desirable smartphone, it's a leap forward for iPhones, not smartphones as a whole. Doing so as long as you are with the iPhone X is OK but trusting every other device believing to be as secure as the iPhone X can prove costly. It's one of the smoothest implementations of the technology and seems much more natural than using your fingerprints to unlock. Both phones have a cutout at the top of the screen for the front camera, although Apple's is much wider since it includes additional sensors for facial recognition.

Pre-orders will open on Sept. 15 for the iPhone 8 ($699) and the iPhone 8 Plus ($799) and shipping will be by Sept. 22. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity displays respectively.

However, Apple isn't only the one who plans to bring the idea of 3D facial recognition technology to the masses. How any of us ever lived without that is beyond me. This technology has been available for a while and was a part of the project being done by an Israeli 3D sensing company called PrimeSense, which Apple acquired on 2013.

The 64GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,299 (Rs. 32,300), the 128GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,599 (Rs. 35,300) and the 256GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 3,999 (Rs. 39,200).

Sure, it can be frustrating that an iPhone 4 no longer can download most apps. In the future, most smartphones will probably sport some form of gesture-based control, AR and facial recognition.
