S9 Vs iPhone X comparison

Samsung and Apple are at war

Apple has something serious to worry about as Samsung has officially announced the release of their flagship mobile phones Galaxy S9 and S9 plus. From an almost undisputed leader position, Apple has a formidable enemy to be dealt with. Google’s Pixel phones have not really taken off.

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are finally in Barcelona putting off all the speculations at bay. So the fight of the Titans is on. The screen size is same for both. So are the pixel count and OLED panel, storage, Ram, cameras and battery. However Samsung seems to have put their emphasise on the camera.

Samsung has strategically placed the finger print scanner at the back and below the camera so as not to accidentally touch the cameras. Apple introduced the face ID system. Whereas Apple dispensed with the head phone jack, Samsung has not. So is the micro SD slot. The variable aperture camera of S9 surprised all.

The Android Oreo versus IOs 11 war is also started in the same breath. Sensors are almost identical – Iris sensor, Pressure sensor, Accelerometer, Barometer, Fingerprint sensor, Gyro sensor, Geomagnetic sensor, Hall sensor, HR sensor, Proximity sensor, RGB Light sensor etc.
