Consumer Reports Recommends Samsung Galaxy S7 Over The Apple iPhone 8
Everyone knows Consumer Reports as being a trustworthy and exempt source when it comes to recommending purchases from American consumers. Already on several occasions, it was beaten against the giants of the industry, leading them to improve their products.
In the latest analysis of smartphones in the market, Consumer Reports gives a preference over the Samsung Galaxy S7 and not the tech giant Apple’s iPhone 8.
After reviewing existing smartphone market proposals, Consumer Reports has established a list of recommended devices in order of preference based on various factors of daily use.
At the top of that list are the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, with 81 points out of 100 possible, followed by the iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy S7, both with 80 points. With this same score are also the Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6.
Despite these similar notes, the Consumer Reports recommendation ends up falling for Samsung’s product and not on Apple’s new smartphone, of course, the iPhone 8.
The reason presented for this choice that many consider to be unreasonable was based on 2 simple but important factors. According to Consumer Reports, the Galaxy S7 has better sound quality in the phone calls and a better autonomy than the iPhone 8.
Curiously, the Consumer Reports recommendation also puts the Galaxy Note 8 below these two devices, being only the third choice in this score range.
Launched just over a month ago, iPhone 8 sales appear not to be the ones Apple and analysts expected. In part, the blame lies on the iPhone X, which will arrive within days and for many is the most successful option to purchase.
This recommendation will also have a negative impact since Consumer Reports has a large weight among consumers in the US.
