    After what has been the longest, least secure lead-up to a phone launch, Samsung have finally taken the covers off (sorry, Unboxed) their Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones. And the biggest news? Guess what, all the rumours were true!

We already know the spec of these phones, but I'll run over it again for clarity. I've got to be honest, these are the best spec'd phones on the market at the moment.

    • I saw another Model of Poptel company and its look like Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.  Poptel Company is promoting it as the killer of Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.  Let's check the Comparison Table.  After checking the specification table, I must say that the Samsung has much better features than the Poptel. But If you check the price difference than the Poptel is perfect for the price. It has good features for the price.  In the End, If you have a low budget for a good looking rugged phone than the Poptel is a perfect choice. Otherwise Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is perfect for the outdoor phone.  What your opinion?
       
    • Price is the most important factor, you would considering while buying a smartphone. Not everyone could afford an iPhone. So, Xiaomi gives foremost importance to the pricing of its devices. Even its latest flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi5 with premium features just costs under $400 (INR 25,000).
    • this is new to the market, and there are not much content on the internet. 
       I saw user review on XDA forum, the review will help you to decide.
    • Hello  everyone, I joined the forum, because i need your expert opinion. 

      I am looking for Cat S41 alternate. I liked Cat S41, but i can't pay $350+. 
      after searched, i found Poptel P9000 Max.
      i like it because of 9000mAh battery with quick charger, 13mp back camera, 4 LED light for Torch, and IP68 Rating.

      I need your suggestion.

      thanks in advance
