THE iPhone 8 has been pitted against the Samsung Galaxy S8 by renown non-profit magazine, Consumer Reports. And therefore it’s not good news for one of the technology rivals.

Consumer Reports has some bad news for Apple.The renown non-profit organisation believes Samsung’s flagship smartphones are a better offering to consumers –even those produced 18 months before the iPhone 8 and 8Plus.

Consumer Reports awarded the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+scores of 81 out of a possible 100, topping the iPhone 8,
which scored 80 under the same criteria.

Despite receiving the same score, Consumer Reports actually recommends customers purchase the Samsung Galaxy S7 Over the latest Apple handsets.
It believes the Galaxy S8 – and its predecessor – are a better offering to consumers than iPhone 8.

According to the US publication, the Samsung handsets offer better battery life and call quality than the iPhone
8 and 8 Plus.

Consumer Reports also prefers the Galaxy S7’s “handsets capabilities”.

The iPhone 8 did manage to top the Galaxy Note 8, which shares the same score as the former, but is ranked below
it in the leaderboard.

Express.co.uk branded the Galaxy S8 not only the “best smartphone Samsung has ever built”, but “the best smartphone you can buy right now”.

In our in-depth Galaxy S8 review, we wrote: “Like the original iPhone, the Galaxy S8 has redefined our expectations when it comes to smartphone design, and
competitors are undoubtedly scrambling to catch-up with the stunning Infinity Display design. The Galaxy S8 is jaw-
droppingly beautiful and eye-wateringly powerful.”

HTC shared its results for the month of October and are not encouraging for Taiwanese manufacturer. October generated only $ 21 million in revenue, most of which comes from mobile phones and the rest from other business as virtual reality (HTC Vive).

By comparison, HTC generated 41 million in revenue during September following the introduction of some entry-level models. However, October registered a decrease of 48% with an annual decrease of 49% compared to the same period in 2018.

Over the past year, HTC has laid off about 25 percent of its employees as a measure to cut costs. It is already well known that HTC is the brand that is suffering the most in the mobile phone market, even more so than LG and Sony, which have lucrative deals in other markets such as televisions, for example.

HTC’s new CEO has already admitted that the company has stopped innovating

This year marked the departure of Cher Wang, the company’s longtime CEO, being replaced by Yves Maitre. The new CEO admitted in a September interview that HTC simply “failed to innovate in mobile phone hardware.”

The CEO added that companies like Apple, Samsung and Huawe did a great job of keeping their equipment relevant, something HTC has failed to do. Maitre says it was due to the investment of resources and time in virtual reality.

However, we know this is “throwing sand at the eyes”. In addition to lack of innovation, HTC continued to drive unattractive pricing at its top end, failing to win back the European and US markets.

No company has a perfect working environment, and Google does not escape this claim. Alphabet (Google’s proprietary business conglomerate) has hired an outside law firm to review sexual harassment cases at Google.

However, they are not company employees but high-level executives. From legal department officials to one of the founders of Android, cases are being investigated by third parties on suspicions that not enough action is being taken.

Some of the cases refer to 2013, and Alphabet intends to investigate the measures taken and possibly reopen the cases, if necessary.

David Drummond and Andy Rubin are the most media cases

Google lawyer and legal department leader David Drummond was recently involved in a sex scandal after his involvement with several colleagues was confirmed. Drummond cheated on his wife and had a son with Jennifer Blakely, one of the team’s lawyers.

Personal relationships between managers and team members are against Google’s human resources rules. However, the case was “muffled” as Blakely was simply placed in a sales department while Drummond retained his position.

As for Andy Rubin, one of the founders of Android, the case is more “pointy”. In 2013, Rubin allegedly convinced a co-worker to do her sexual favors in a hotel room. The case was exposed by the New York Times that led to Rubin’s departure from the company, with compensation of $ 90 million.

In 2018, company employees spoke out

A year ago, several Google employees gathered in New York to protest how the company deals with sexual harassment. The protest includes officials not only from the US but also from England, Germany and Japan.

In response, Sundar Pichai stated at the time that about 48 senior employees of the company were fired on harassment charges. The situation does not seem to have improved as the Alphabet decided to take legal action and investigate the cases.
