Two undeniably charming models are the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X Apple . Those who enjoy browsing advanced smartphone features will find these two exemplary options incredible.
But both because they are two smartphones considered top of the line, and because they are sold in Brazil for similar values, it is common to be in doubt when choosing. After all, what is the best smartphone between the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X ? Check out the characteristics of both below and see which one is best for you!
Screen and design
Regarding the screen size, the Galaxy S9 has a 6.2 ”screen, while the iPhone X has a 5.8” screen. While the Galaxy S9 has Super AMOLED with an 18.5: 9 aspect ratio, the iPhone X has a QLED screen.
Regarding the screen resolution, in turn, the Galaxy S9 has the so-called QHD + Curve, and the iPhone X features the Super Retina HD.
The camera is one of the main points assessed by most people who choose to invest in a new smartphone today. After all, with the habit of posting photos on social networks and even the possibility of monetizing amateur videos, the more advanced the smartphone camera is, the better the content will be produced.
In this sense, both the Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X are great models. The Galaxy S9 has a front camera 12MP (f / 2.4) + 12MP (f / 1.5 to f / 2.4) and a rear camera with 8MP (f / 1.7). The iPhone X features 12MP + 12MP (f / 1.8 and f / 2.4) on its rear camera, and 7MP (f / 2.2) on its front camera.
Processor and RAM
Both the processor and the RAM are decisive for the good functioning of the smartphone . Very elaborate applications, or the use of several applications simultaneously, which can be part of the routine of certain people, requires an advanced processor and high capacity of RAM. Those looking to edit photos, videos and audios, or even who work with specific commercial applications, need to take these values into account when choosing their smartphone.
In this regard, the Galaxy S9 has 6 GB of RAM . Apple does not inform the RAM memory of the iPhone X , so anyone who needs to know this information with total precision may end up being afraid.
Regarding the processor, in turn, Apple makes a point of informing that the iPhone X has 64-bit Hexa-core processing (Apple A11 Bionic ). The Galaxy S9 has an Octa-core processor up to 2.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845) .
The operating system, as well as the processor, is decisive in application processing and smartphone performance. In fact, the consumer must take into account that the operating system not only influences the quality of information processing, but can also restrict some operations.
This is because, although there is some investment on the part of manufacturers in creating applications that are compatible with Android and iOS , there are some applications available only for one type of operating system. In addition, specific versions of certain applications may require specific versions of the smartphone’s operating system.
Therefore, if you are in doubt between buying a Galaxy S9 or an iPhone X, and the operating system is a decisive point for you, consider that the Galaxy S9 has Android 8 (Oreo) as its operating system, while the iPhone X presents iOS 11. Both are great operating systems, but have certain specifics.
