We recently posted on the red iPhone craze and how Apple has been able to dominate the smartphone market since the iPhone's inception overall; but not EVERYone is a devoted Apple follower and many have been just waiting for another company to come along and develop a phone that goes beyond the iPhone's capabilities. Samsung has been gained momentum over the years and their Galaxy smartphone has gone toe to toe with the iPhone for the past few years; now the forthcoming Galaxy S8 has a chance to possibly outdo Apple, at least for the short term.
No favors were done for Samsung after the controversy surrounding the Note 7 models catching fire, so the brand has to work extra hard to get the word out to consumers that the problems have been addressed and will not carry over to the S8. Beyond that, the S8 is packed with features that are sure to grab attention and likely bring back customers that were leery of choosing a Galaxy model after the Note 7 mishaps.

With a new hot model, of course a bigger price tag comes with it as the red iPhone will be available for $750 and the red iPhone Plus will be $850. So $100 more than the normal cost just because of a color? Well, not exactly. The new red iPhone is only available with 128GB or 256GB models, meaning the cheaper models won't be seeing this special red edition.
