Samsung Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X
Ultimately, it might end up being a decision between the iPhone/Apple family or if you are an Android enthusiast because both phones are exceptional in design and have several great selling points.
With the release of the Galaxy S9, many people who aren’t loyalists to either Android or iPhone are probably considering these two great phones. So, which is right for you? Do you go with the iPhone X or Galaxy S9? These are a few factors which might help you decide.
Both of these phones are going to run nearly £1000 if not more when you invest in a brand-new phone. If you go through a specific-carrier, prices might be higher. Some retailers offer to pay monthly phones but not all retailers offer this option.
A clear winning point here for the Samsung family; the iPhone X doesn’t have a port for the headphones and the Samsung does. If you want to connect headphones which are wired this is only possible with the Samsung Galaxy S9 phone.
Both have glass/metal frame designs, the S9 has curved edges while the iPhone is a bit ‘boxier.’ The iPhone X is slimmer and a bit lighter but the S9 comes in various colors including lilac, blue, black, and grey while the iPhone has fewer choices. It is ultimately up in the air and the design with both is extremely high-end and functional.
Samsung has iPhone beat here as well. Google services, streaming devices and even speed of the phone’s internal capabilities are superior to the Galaxy. With the iPhone, you are only compatible with other-products Apple TV, a smartwatch. For those who want more connectivity to more devices/software, the Galaxy is the phone to consider.
If size is your thing the S9 wins here with the 6.2’’ versus iPhone 5.8’’ screen; However both are much larger than other competitor models out there. Both phones are OLED but the S9 has a little higher quality resolution. The iPhone has retina display and TrueTone which automatically accounts for light, temperature and other settings to ensure exceptionally captured shots/videos.
If this is an important feature to you, the S9 is the winner but only slightly. Neither of the phones has truly exceptional quality built-in, so this really won’t be a major selling point either way for those who are on the fence between the two phones.
For facial recognition, Apple is a clear-cut winner here. The precision and accuracy at which it can save facial features, regardless of what the owner is wearing or facial contours is truly amazing. The S9 is okay but not nearly as good as the iPhone on this end.
Ultimately, it might end up being a decision between the iPhone/Apple family or if you are an Android enthusiast because both phones are exceptional in design and have several great selling points. The S9 is a little more ‘universal’ in that it is compatible with far more devices and software. But the iPhone is always a top-contender in terms of quality, style, and elegance in design. These are a few of the areas to consider when deciding on a new phone and ultimately deciding if you are going to stick with Android or jump over to iOS.
