Early reviews are calling the phone a serious rival to Apple’s iPhone X. Coming in at $719 it’s slightly lesser than the iPhone X’s $1000 price tag. Critics claim it’s a nice upgrade for old Androids, but S8 owners can wisely skip.

Some new features included battery health and performance settings, four new Animojis, Business Chat and Health Records betas, just to name a few. Apple also fine tunes several software bugs that affects the phones usage. So to all Apple users, head over to the settings tab and select general and then software update to take advantage of these new features.
