Today's smartphone market is increasingly diverse and anyone can find a device that meets their needs without the need to spend more than a month's salary. However, there are two brands that are like the standard of the whole market. Those two who insist on constantly comparing themselves. I am clearly talking about Samsung and Apple.

Each has its virtues, each with its own defects, of course. But there are small details that Samsung has taken the lead. Firstly for the quality of your screens. Samsung's Super AMOLEDs have yet to meet a rival in the market, let alone when compared to Apple's LCDs – which nonetheless have proved quite interesting.
This point could be remedied as early as 2017, as all rumors point to the new iPhone 8 finally bringing an OLED screen. Then we have water and dust certifications, where, once again, Samsung gets the better of its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge to be IP68 certified, while the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are IP67 certified.
But this differential should also be overcome this year, as the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 are expected to be IP68 certified. If for the Galaxy S8 this is a very natural step, for Apple lovers it will be seen with much more enthusiasm.
In practical terms, IP68 certification means that you can submerge your smartphone up to five feet deep for thirty minutes. This protection will be more than enough for our daily life, for an unforeseen event that it is raining while you are on the phone. If you're even bolder and want that selfie Every quaint underwater, your Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8 will be able to deliver it without future damage to your smartphone.
This is a small detail, I know, but that, as I argued in this text, could be one that would make you choose one piece of equipment over the other. Therefore, your concerns about raining with your smartphone, or accidentally falling into your pool, can be overcome with both Apple and Samsung products.
