While Samsung has managed to avoid the battery fiasco of the Galaxy Note 7 in the Galaxy Note 8, it seems that they might have a new problem on their hands.

While on the surface and on paper, most flagship phones these days seem identical, there are underlying differences that can set phones apart from each other in ways that you might not even realize.

We know that some of Apple’s critics out there are skeptical about the iPhone X’s success. After all with it priced so high, well and above most of the competition, wouldn’t it just deter customers who might choose a different brand instead?

Samsung rolled out the latest security patch for Android devices to many variants of the Galaxy Note 8 earlier this month.
