The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 8 are in close competition for business users' attention. If you're a professional in the market for a new phone, you're probably considering both, in which case this guide is for you. Entrepreneurs tend to be more price-sensitive than typical consumers, which is why price is the first category we're reviewing here. The Samsung Galaxy S8 currently retails for $724.99, while the new Apple iPhone 8 starts at $649 (64GB) and goes up to $849 (256GB).
Amazon just announced the new Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017), which is currently available for preorder online for $149.99. The first batch of new tablets will ship on Oct. 11, 2017. The previous HD 10, released in 2015, was significantly more expensive ($230) than the newer model, and many reviewers complained about its slow performance and underwhelming display quality.
Apple recently announced three new iPhones: iPhone8, iPhone8 Plus and iPhone X (pronounced ten). The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for preorder on September 15, and the iPhone X will be available for preorder on October 27. But for those planning to buy an Apple smartphone, those aren't your only choices. If a $1,000 phone isn't in your budget, you might want to consider an older, less sophisticated model in the company's lineup.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
