Nokia 8 - the safest phone again?
This market veteran has been trying to make a comeback for years now, failing to keep up with the technological advancement that market peers were showing off. However, Nokia has a brand value and loyalty that has refused to die out even after its flagship devices became obsolete. Is Nokia 8 worth a try?
Major new feature
Something people are calling a 'bothie' where you can have two sides of a video stream or a call, from the rear and front cameras, on the screen simultaneously. This can then be uploaded and shared directly to social media. In this age of vlogging, video journalism and live video streams, this can work as an innovative feature that many people might find useful.
Samsung Note 8 - another Note recall? Maybe not
The Galaxy Note fan base has been anticipating this launch with albeit some trepidation after the Note 7 recall of 2016.
The Galaxy Note 8 has the largest screen space of all their devices released to date and is also the first Samsung device featuring dual-camera set-up with a camera upgrade.
iPhone 8 - just another iPhone?
There has been much hype about Apple's newest creation called iPhone 8 and some industry experts suggest that while the new device will leave Apple loyals happy, it may lose to Samsung's superior technology available at a more reasonable price.
A new roll out this year is the dual camera set up and face recognition. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have new glass and aluminium designs, new Retina HD displays and A11 Bionic - apparently the smartest chip ever in a smartphone.
