This year Apple is going to release new iPhones which will be super exciting as the expectations and reviews are to the extreme. Business Insider says that the apple iPhone’s new phone might be more expensive than the previous phone iPhone X. Junior Aditi Desai,says “Apple iPhones are worth investing in as it has new and awesome features in everything they release.”

The Business Insider also states that there is going to be faster Face ID in the new phone, but if people do not want to use face recognition they can get the iPhone 8 and 8 plus which is lined up in stock and is going to be $100 off.

It seems to be easier for people to have an iPhone when they do not want face id as the iPhone XS is going to have it. The website also states that most improvements will come in the phone’s software as Apple will release iOS 12 shortly after the release of the new iPhones.

The Boy genius report states that the Samsung will be releasing S10. Samsung’s release is not that exciting to many people. According to the report, “the sequel to Samsung’s most boring flagship smartphone in years is shaping up to be the company’s most exciting flagship smartphone in years — or perhaps ever.” In the website it is also assured that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will not have a feature display with a notch.

The Boy genius report also states that “Samsung literally wrote the book on copying Apple. And yet the notch is nowhere to be found on any of the smartphones Samsung has released since the iPhone X was unveiled more than a year ago. The internal report was presented by Apple attorneys on Tuesday afternoon, and considering the basis of the company’s case is that Samsung pivoted in 2010 and shifted its product line to ‘blatantly copy’ Apple’s iPhone and iPad.” states that iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 have started to be available for the first time in Australia and New Zealand where it is after 8:00 a.m. on Friday, September 21, and in other countries as the launch date approaches, people are excited and are queueing up to purchase a Apple’s new devices.

Apple states that there are going to be many new features like water resistance, which does not apply only to fresh water but also juices and other beverages, for almost 30 minutes. It also states that the new features include several touch features and color enhancement. They also state that “on the surface the cameras specs look the same as the iPhone X, as do the cameras themselves, but the main sensor in the wide-angle camera is bigger and houses larger pixels.” Apple says the iPhone XS and XS Max have the biggest ever batteries in an iPhone. You can expect 30 minutes longer runtime from the iPhone XS than an iPhone X. The XS Max will last 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X.

On the other hand, the Samsung S8 was a phone that had nice features which won many hearts.. Tom’s guide  says that the Samsung S8 was an awesome phone and the best phone to buy. They also state that the Samsung S8 is not as good as pixel XL in cameras. However, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is less expensive. Freshman Aakash Pany, says, “I like the Samsung S8 more than the iPhone X as it’s more a practical phone and it works better.”

According to Tom’s Guide Samsung may follow Apple’s footsteps and release not two but three models after its upcoming Galaxy S10. This report comes from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo via Business Insider, who claims the company is planning 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch handsets. It also follows an earlier report from ETNews back in June that listed three devices code-named Beyond.

Samsung has been criticized for not developing a 3D face scanner to compete with the Face ID in Apple’s iPhone X. But a report from The Investor says that Samsung has partnered with 3D camera firm Mantis Vision to finally get a 3D scanner into the Galaxy S10.

A report in February from The Investor cited an interview with Samsung mobile chief Dongjin Koh, who hinted that Samsung might move away from the numbered branding on the Galaxy S line. So, rather than calling its next smartphone the Galaxy S10, Samsung might opt for an alternative name. It might also choose, simply, the Galaxy S. “Although Samsung will stick to Galaxy, we have been thinking about whether we need to maintain the S moniker or the numbering system,” Dongjin  Koh said in that interview. says“Apple’s Product Development Process may be one of the most successful design processes ever implemented. With the company verging on becoming the world’s first $1 trillion business organization – there’s a lot that designers can learn from Apple and introduce into their own design environments.” Apple has surely developed a lot because their first iPhone changed the world by introducing the first technology of smartphone. The other reason behind their success is that they always develop new features for each and every phone and their product will be unique in that no other company has done it before. states, “There are critics of Samsung who argue that its success is mostly due to copying and then tweaking the innovations of others.” There is a good deal of truth in this, especially around the early Galaxy designs. Junior Ty Buckner says, “Samsung does whatever Apple does. Their company is almost based on Apple.”

CNET states that the iPhone x was unveiled in September 2017 and remained at the top among the smartphone industry. Though Samsung S9 plus and Huawei P20 pro made some interesting advancements in technology, nothing was equivalent to iPhone’s revolutionary FACE ID unlocking system. CNET also states that the iPhone x is Apple’s most expensive iPhone ever.

Senior Srinidhi Nandhuri says, “iPhone X was interesting. The only difference was the face ID. They may have made the difference in the world and modern technology.”

Digitaltrends states that Samsung’s new galaxy S10 will be coming soon. It also states that Samsung has been working on a foldable displays for a number of years which would be applied to the iPhone S10. Sophomore Ishaan Sharma says, “Recently Samsung had more sales but when it comes to success it is the iPhones that succeeded with new technology and always had high marketing.”
