Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android operating system hit the marketplace one decade ago. Ten years later, there’s still plenty of debate over which is better. I’ve lately been asked which of three new flagship phones is better: Apple’s iPhone 8, its iPhone X, or Samsung’s new Galaxy S8, which runs Google Android?

Smartphones have gone through some remarkable changes over the years. How do you determine which is best for you today?

First, these are all excellent smartphones that have redefined leadership in the sector. They have improved over the last decade. However, there are real differences.

In fact, there are significant differences between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Until the iPhone X finally became available last week, iPhone 8 sales were very slow. Now that users can compare, I expect sales of both models to pick up steam.

Many users who waited for the iPhone X have found the new design harder to use and less satisfying. The camera is better, but many miss the familiar Home button. To some, the new iPhone looks and feels like a Samsung Galaxy phone, and they don’t like that.

The iPhone 8 may be more appealing to those customers. As for the Home button, though, Apple has been messing with it for the last year or two — the iPhone 7 and 8 have different Home buttons. What’s available now is not really a button. Many users prefer the feel of the old time, real button. However, they have no way to get it on newer devices.

This is an instance of Apple pushing users outside their comfort zone, which is something many dislike.
