The iPhone XS and XS Max from Apple take on the best flagship Android smartphone around: the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. So, how do the latest iPhones from Apple compare to the best Galaxy handset from Samsung yet? Let’s find out in our comparison.
Samsung Galaxy S9
Samsung has decided that, several months after the launch of the iPhone X and even the launch of its own flagship, the Galaxy S9, to stoke the fire of anti-iPhone ads.
Samsung has been pretty quiet on the ad front lately, where it typically ends up marketing Apple just as much as its own phones.
Samsung’s marketing for its smartphones usually has Apple in them in some way or another, and that trend continues with its latest advertisement.
Samsung today announced that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ ‘are the fastest phones ever’ in the market…in terms of LTE download speeds. The company is making this claim based on the data from Ookla’s Speedtest.
A new camera phone champion hits the market (the Samsung Galaxy S9), and it’s time for another super-detailed comparison. All the photos here (bar one) are deliberately shown in low light. My aim here was to push the optics and image processing of the three smartphone cameras to the limit – every phone camera takes a good snap in bright sunlight, but they all struggle once light gets low. Or do they?
Samsung had a hit on its hands with the Galaxy S8 (and Galaxy S8+) last year, even if it was viewed as a somewhat “fundamentally flawed” handset.
Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S handset, the Galaxy S9, is all set to hit the retail stores later this week. The handset will be the first one in the market to launch with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset. The S9+ also comes with 6GB of RAM which should definitely give it an edge in the multitasking department.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X are both made of glass. While the Galaxy S9 features a Series 7000 aluminum for its chassis, the iPhone X uses a stronger steel chassis. The Galaxy S9, however, is more durable than the Galaxy S8 as it features a thicker glass and its edges are slightly thicker as well to better absorb shock.
