Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Apple iPhone X

The world of smartphone is very huge, its so huge that Samsung has its own galaxies within it (just kidding). Every now and then with new researches and development, smartphone giants are releasing new and improved versions of their previously available devices. With small and slow steps forward, the newer devices are able to pack on some serious features from display to battery life to thinness to compactness. Everything thing is shrinking its size, even the bezels on the smartphones are shrinking except the expectations of users and the manufacturer’s desire to develop.

Apple just became the first U.S. based public company to cross $1 trillion cap mark. The Samsung has been sitting there at top with devices of every price range literally targeting every customer of every budget range.

Today we are about to do some comparison between these 2 company’s latest models because its very hot topic at present to talk on.

Apple iPhone X

iPhone X - Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Vs iPhone X

The iPhone X pronounced “iPhone 10”, was introduced at Apple’s September 2017 event as another addition to the iPhone family. The phone is much anticipated one and as always, people were very excited at the release. As Apple likes to say, this particular iPhone X represents the biggest leap in the technological ecosystem since their first iPhone launch a decade ago. The hopes were to create an all display iPhone for the users, eliminating the lines between expectation and reality. Its unique display design with both front and back glass panel and a “Notch” on the front side is a unique sight. The notch has been very popular since then. It may have been hated by some, but it is loved by most and its necessary too to just pack on the sensors required.

Note 9 - Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Vs iPhone X

The Galaxy Note 9 is a little bigger, little colorful and powerful than the previous Note phone. It’s the biggest Android phone you will want to have your hands on in 2018. Standing tall with 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display and a huge 4,000 mAh battery, it provides max of 512GB internal with a choice to have the very first 1TB phone through MicroSD card expansion.

These are some of the straight forward specs comparison of the two devices. iPhone X ditches the fingerprint sensor for a facial recognition mechanism they like to call “Face ID”. They believe that the fingerprint has higher possibility of replication than a person’s face. They are so confident of their system that they claim, even identical twins cannot fool the system. The Dot projector projects more than 30,000 invisible infrared dots onto the face and are read by an infrared camera which then transforms and recognizes the users face. It only works when you look at it with eyes wide open i.e. no one can access your phone while you are sleeping. The face ID adopts as your face changes. They ditched the headphone jack for the sake of compactness and making wireless. On the contrary side, the Note 9 has an Iris scanner for the eyes and face unlock feature as well but not as iPhone X has. It retains the fingerprint scanner as people rely and seem to trust it more.

Though being a product of two different company on two different platform with its different pros and cons, both the devices have their own popularity among the users. The iPhone X’s attraction are its display and Face ID whereas Note 9 is popular of its looks and the S-pen it comes with.

The S-pen in Note 9 works like a magician’s wand. There are ton of things you can do with it from over 30 feet away. It can work as a trigger for the camera, buttons for music tracks, advance photos in gallery, pointer for presentation and much more.

Unlike Apple’s Pencil that sticks out every time you need to charge it, S-pen does that inside the phone and in just 40 seconds for 30 minutes battery life. Apple’s pencil can just not be hidden and it looks ridiculous while charging. Overall Samsung has been doing great improvement in their stylus sector.

Both the devices have wireless charging support and fast charging support. Samsung has a fast charger included in the box, but Apple wants its cut by having to buy the fast charge at an additional cost separately.

Hence, these were the quick and somewhat detailed comparison of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Apple iPhone X. Both the devices are one of its kind and comparing them would be an unfair task given their release dates and target market.
