We have seen a number of high-end and high-tech smartphones in the year 2017 so far including best of the best from Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and others. We can’t decide the real king of smartphones but the Consumer Reports does the job.

Recent ranking of the organisation reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 of the last year is better than the latest iPhone 8. What more, if you see iPhone 8 an iPhone 8 Plus ranking lower than their biggest rivals in the market – Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Consumer Reports Rating

Recently, the organization has rated several new smartphones with their rivals from the past and the present, which has naturally brought up some unconventional comparisons. However, they rank the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on the top two positions followed by Galaxy S7 at the third position and iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 were ranked fourth and fifth respectively.

How strange, the Consumer Reports believe that the last year’s Samsung device is better than Apple’s flagship devices. The iPhone 8 is no doubt a solid and powerful device but it hardly gives the iPhone 7 users a reason to upgrade. Even then the new A11 Bionic chipset in the new device makes us doubt the ranking. Didn’t you?

It is also an interesting aspect to see that the organisation ranks the Galaxy Note 8 even lower on the sixth position as compared to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices launched in March this year.

Apple Needs Not to Worry

We think Apple needs not to worry about the recent ranking of Consumer Reports rather the company should focus on the main event of the year coming on November 3rd; the shipment of iPhone X.

Although Apple has sold millions of units of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus so far but the critics claim a sluggish response from Apple fans. However, we consider all this happening due to another Apple product that is due to flourish the shelved on November 3; we mean the iPhone X. More people who did not respond to iPhone 8 are probably waiting for the big one.

On the other hand, there are some reports claiming that Apple is under extreme pressure to fulfil market demand of iPhone X during the first week sale. Reportedly there are some hardware and supply chain issues building up the stress.

We hope Apple will take care of all those and flourish on the top once again.
