Korean mobile giant company, Samsung released its long-awaited smartphone Galaxy S9, S9+ , and which for sure have been gaining a lot of attention and of course comparison with its largest competitor iPhone X. The iPhone X which received a lot of backlashes and some even said it is a worthless piece of metal, which makes me so happy that people know that Apple is not the only fruit.
When comparing these two phones, there is nothing too special to ditch one for the other.
The iPhone X is designed with that top notch that is already going out of style, the Galaxy S9 an almost-full body screen that retains most of the design cues of the S8. They both display excellent crisp images and they both take excellent photos.
The OLED screen on the iPhone X and the AMOLED screen on S9 are both spectacular displays and the processors are both tops of their class. For all intents and purposes, it will be hard to differentiate between the two unless you have them side by side.
Of course, the iPhone X doesn’t have an earphone Jack but S9 does have one. That isn’t enough reason to ditch iPhone X.

If you were going to make that comparison, from a value point of view, the Galaxy is still the better buy – particularly when you factor in the S9+’s wide-angle and telephoto lens (which scored a 99 DxOMark), bigger battery life and storage space options. If you were going to compare the S9+, clearly Samsung has the edge, innovating just enough to outperform Apple’s latest.
