1) The fast charger comes with the box!
Fast-charging is a feature that has often come in handy, and it comes standard with the Galaxy S9.
Meanwhile, if you want to take advantage of the iPhone X's fast charging, you either need to buy a separate charging item.

2) Galaxy is cheaper
As we all know iPhone is very expensive, while the galaxy one is not.

3) Flexibility
S9 features that give me extra flexibility options: the fingerprint sensor, the microSD card slot, and the headphone jack.

Now I know these are not GREAT reasons, but it's at least something. :)

iPhone is only expensive when you buy the latest model of it. If you choose lower models, then it can give you a good price.

Exactly, I used this phone and it is very fast and awesome screen display. :)

Same goes for the Samsung devices, really. While an older model of an iPhone could be sold be €350,00, there's the Samsung counterpart of that iPhone at €250,00. The price gap is smaller when they get older though, but it's still a hundred euro's difference where I live.

Also, "these are not great reasons"? I daresay every single spec is important. Even the smallest of things matter. Completely different subject: Yesterday, me and my girlfriend went to McDonalds, and they gave a Pokemon...

As a Samsung fanboy myself, I do believe the S9 is a better phone overall. However, when compared to an iPhone X, I do have to give credit to Apple where credit is due. The iPhone X beats the S9 in a large number of benchmarks.
Hi all!
I was wondering if there's someone who still uses an HTC Windows Phone 8.1?
I know it's quite old, but I find myself very comfortable using it. It has all the functions I need so it doesn't really bother me.

So do you still use it?
And also, is there any way to modernize it?

Hi there Pusya! :)
Not at all, I'd say it's more practical to use an HTC because it's smaller, cheaper, and overally feels more comfortable. But obviously it suffers in terms of features.

I have an HTC (with Windows Phone 8.1) which I occasionally use when I go to certain trips.
As for the modernisation, then I'm afraid there isn't much you can do. Apart from regular updates, nothing else can be done. You could download an app or two from the store, but you have to remember the store offers...
This is just a general question. If you like to read, would you rather read from a physical book or read it as a png file (or however it's done) on your phone or tablet?

Personally, I prefer the physical book. Mainly so that I always know how long the current book still is. It gives me that constant reminder in my head that tells me how close we are to the plot point and the ending. I also love the smell of newly purchased books. I don't know if eBooks have it, but in fantasy stories, there often a map of the world the story is situated in, giving you a better idea of where the protagonist is and where who is planning to go somewhere. Also other valuable information, like a glossary or other books in the series or by the author.

And all in all, I just love holding a book and turning pages, rather than scrolling. It would make me feel like I'm scrolling through a long post on 9gag. And being on my phone, I usually let myself be distracted by games or 9gag, to the point where I forgot that I was reading a book.

So what about you guys? Physical books or eBooks? Or both?

Glad to see someone who's also from the old stamp! Doesn't mean eBooks are bad, no, far from it. But there's just something about holding an actual books and reading through the pages.

So what kind of books do all of you read? My niche is Fantasy, and a little touch of Sci-fi is acceptable (so no big intergalactic wars with lots of tech). Last series I read was the Talon Saga (5 books) by Julie Kagawa. An excellent mix of 50% real life (well, the story happens in real life, but we see the...

I would recommend thinkpad because of its powerful processor. This is kinda good for the price and also for gamers. But if you are a mild user like browsing,surfing or use only for social medias then I would recommend Azus.

Hello, I have a Toshiba laptop and I highly recommend it. I received the laptop last 2013 with windows 8 on it and up until now it is still working and is in good condition.
For those people asking about this, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature IP68-rated water and dust resistance. The IP68 rating indicates that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is water resistant up to 1.5 meters (4.92 feet) for 30 minutes. The iPhone 7 is IP67-rated water and dust resistant, meaning it can be submerged in 1 meter (3.28 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes.

Am I right? Drop your comments below.

Quick advice for everyone: Just because a smartphone or tablet is waterproof, doesn't mean you have to let them get in touch with any water. Always protect your devices from water. Don't use it needlessly outside when it's raining, don't take it with you in the shower, don't lick it (don't even know why anyone would), or anything else like that.

Waterproof means "Some water doesn't immediatly kill it", not "Water doesn't kill it".

As far as I know, this unit Samsung S8 is waterproof and dustproof. It is the best for those peoples who love to go underwater and make a shot out of it. If you are a diver, swimmer or ocean explorer, guys this unit is suited for you.
