Which mobile operating system is better: iOS or Android? Simply given the contentious nature of that ages-old argument, we may never reach an official consensus on which OS is ‘better’ than the other. Of course, when it comes to hardware, we’re singing a slightly different tune. Apple’s recent iPhone models, and specifically the iPhone X, are without a doubt among the best looking and technologically advanced smartphones released this year.
And yet, we shouldn’t be so quick to discount some of 2017’s hottest Android offerings, either, like Samsung’s edge-to-edge Galaxy Note 8, or Google’s high-end Pixel 2 & XL 2.
While they certainly don’t represent Android offerings as a whole, these otherwise high-end devices do highlight a growing trend in the smartphone industry: Android OEMs are working harder than ever before to create devices more powerful, beautiful, and advanced than Apple’s iPhone.
They’re trying, at least.. Samsung and others are scrambling to procure iPhone X-caliber facial recognition components for their upcoming flagship devices, which we could see sometime in the first or second quarter of 2018.
