The launch might still be 12 days away, but we already have had a pretty comprehensive look at the Galaxy S8 in all its glory. Today, we get to look at the S8 once again in black, courtesy of a Chinese source on Weibo. However, there isn't much we can tell you that we haven't told you already. The borderless display blends in seamlessly with the almost non-existent black bezels, making us believe that this is probably going to be the best color for the S8 and the S8+.
On the back, we can see the fingerprint scanner, the heart rate sensor, the camera module and the flash. The Samsung logo can be seen sitting at the back, below all the sensors. The only thing is that we did not see the Always On virtual Home button in these pics, which leads us to believe that the phone was switched off while being clicked. What do you think? Do you see anything that we missed? Let us know in the comments.

As it is the situation every year, there's a lot of excitement surrounding the next Galaxy Note device and rumors are slowly starting to make their way onto the internet. Nevertheless, you shouldn't believe everything you read or see. For example, the latest photos of the Galaxy Note 9, as leaked by @BdaLeak are not real either.
This news and the pictures have been confirmed to be a fake by SamMobile so do not take these images very seriously. Besides, it's way too early for Samsung to have fully functioning and ready prototypes such as the ones shown in the pictures. Additionally, the lack of a fingerprint scanner in any of the images gives one the impression that the Note 9 is sporting the in-display fingerprint scanner and we know for a fact that the technology isn't yet ready to support Samsung's AMOLED screens. Nevertheless, the actual images may not really look that much different from the ones that you see here, so it's worth a look we guess!

If you're looking for a new phone, you're probably choosing between an Android and an iPhone. There's no denying that both of these options are amazing. They have great and useful features, as well as impressive specifications. Although some die-hard Apple fans claim there is nothing better than the iPhone, most people wouldn't agree. Android phones sell a significantly higher number of smartphones compared to Apple's sales of the iPhone. Here are 5 reasons why Android is better than iPhone.
You Have More Options to Choose From
There are so many different choices you can make when buying an Android phone. You can easily find one that suits you. For instance, if a camera is important to you and you want to have a 4K resolutions screen, simply find the model that has those features. It doesn't matter if you prefer smaller or bigger phones, there are plenty of models to choose from. It's also worth noting that Android devices span all price ranges. This is different from the expensive iPhone devices that most people don't want to spend so much money on, especially when they can get a good smartphone that fits their needs at a significantly lower price.
The Maps Are Better
Many iPhone users actually download Google Maps to use it instead of the pre-installed app on their phones. Both Google Maps and Apple Maps basically share the same features. You can use it for step-by-step navigation, checking the traffic on specific routes in real time, and download the map so that you can use it even when you don't have access to internet. The two apps might look similar on paper, but Google Maps is the obvious winner here. When you search for a destination on Google Maps, you can see a website address, opening and closing hours of a shop, and you can even call them from the application. On the other hand, Apple Maps doesn't share these features and offers less information.
Siri is no Match for Google Assistant
Google's intelligent assistant is superior compared to Siri. If you're the type of person who loves using your AI assistant to search for information on the internet, you'd prefer Google's product. Siri has a higher risk of making mistakes, which can be quite annoying and cause you to forget what you wanted to search in the first place.
It's only right to say that Siri can outperform Google Assistant in some areas. It's the only assistant that can make emergency calls. It also does a great job of reading text messages and emails for you. On top of that, you can integrate it with apps like WhatsApp and Viber. Meanwhile, Google Assistant is better at giving directions, online shopping, ordering food, and voice recognition.
When it comes to intelligent assistants, it's clear there are more pros than cons in Android phones. This is why we say it can be both your pride and prejudice. By the way, in case you occasionally have to write a Pride and Prejudice essay, you can, for example, even use the digital voice assistant. Also you can use Google Assistant to find free samples of essays about pride and prejudice and use them for inspiration. For example, you know a lot about this topic and a fellow student needs help, then you can use the AI to quickly offer assistance.
The Volume Control Offers More Flexibility
Let's say that you want to set a particular ringer volume on your iPhone. You can do this by going into the settings and choosing the exact volume independently of other sounds. When you're done doing this, you won't have the option to control volume unless you go into the Settings. You can completely silence the ringing, but buttons on the side of the phone for adjusting volume will only work on apps and system sounds. Android offers more flexibility for volume control and allows you to easily adjust the settings for alarms, notifications, ringtones, media, and calls.
Android power-saving modes are very customizable and most models have a longer battery life than iPhones. Although not every Android phone is like this, there are definitely some smartphones that can work longer on a single charge compared to any iPhone. No matter which phone you choose, know that you'll get an incredibly fast charger.
Apple definitely has more die-hard fans that are very vocal about their love for the iPhone. However, behind all that glamour is a device that simply isn't worth the money. Not when you have many different superior smartphones running on the Android operating system.
