By next March, the iPhone X S and the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the only cell phones that many consider. Whether you're an Apple fan who wants to see your new mobile phone beat the competition, or a buyer on the fence, here are the latest flagships from the two biggest brands.
This year's competition is one of the best years. After Apple released three more iPhones, their devices compete directly with Samsung and their three flagship phones. For those of us with smaller hands, the X S Plus and XR are out of the question. Until Apple re-launches an iPhone SE, the only option is the 5.8 "iPhone X S compared to the smallest entry in the Samsung Galaxy S lineup.
Apple has once again integrated an OLED panel into its phone The iPhone X S uses the Apple Super Retina HD display, which However, Apple is not yet ready to make the leap to QuadHD for its entry-level phone, but opted for a resolution of 2436 x 1125, just like the iPhone X. That's special disappointing as the extra pixels take pictures and videos look better  <img src = "https://img.gadgethacks.com/img/96/49/63672355084370/0/iphone-xs-vs-samsung-galaxy -s9-battle-small-giants.w1456.jpg "alt =" iPhone X S vs. Samsung Galaxy S9: The Battle of the Little Giants "width =" 532 "height =" 532 "style =" max-width: 532px; height: auto; "/>
This is another story on the Galaxy S9, with Samsung also featuring a super-AMOLED 5.8-inch display Unlike the X S however, there is no display notch and it has a resolution of 2960 x 1440. This combination results in an incredible 568 pixels per inch, more than 24% sharper than that iPhone X. S .
Cameras  For our mobile photographer out there, this is another tough race.The iPhone X S has dual cameras, and both are 12 MP, one of which is a telephoto lens and the other is a wide-angle lens have optical image stabilization.
Specifications, however, are just one side of the story, thanks to the A12 Bionic S oC improves image processing so that X S can process more data faster. The result is better imaging despite "only" two 12 MP sensors.
The Galaxy S9 only has one camera on the Samsung side, but it's unique. Unlike most cameras with a shutter, the S9 has two, which can adjust automatically depending on the lighting. This variable aperture allows for better pictures when there are enough flashes, and in darker areas.
For the front camera, Apple is bringing its TrueDepth system with its sensors to the X S as a result of an improved front camera. Samsung, which does not have a similar function, relies instead on a single 8 MP camera.
Storage & Battery
Apple has a clear lead in the storage section when comparing these two phones. While the Galaxy S9 is limited to only 64GB of internal storage, Apple has three options from 64GB to half a terabyte. The Galaxy S9 supports microSD cards for up to 512 GB of additional storage.
As far as the battery is concerned, the story is the same as in previous years – Apple uses a lower battery capacity, but thanks to its energy efficiency it offers better battery life for the SoC and OS developed by Apple. While the exact battery capacity is not yet known at this time, we are sure that Apple will hold approximately the same capacity as the 2017 2017 iPhone X with 2,716 mAh. While this is lower than S9's 3000mAh batteries, both should reach the battery life of the whole day, with Apple claiming battery life is greater than that of the iPhone 8.
The biggest difference and one of the deciding factors for those who are on the fence is the price. When the Samsung Galaxy S9 was released in March, it was retailed for $ 719.99. But now that several months have passed, the price has dropped. At the moment, the 64 GB model only costs $ 619.99 in some places. Compared to the starting value of the iPhone X S from $ 999.99, this is the only area where XS can not compete.
These two phones are among the best deals on their respective mobile operating systems. Both offer similar specifications as their large counterparts, only the screen size is different.
At the end of the day, iPhone X S users may be happy that their phone competes well with the Samsung Galaxy S9. With the exception of the price, the iPhone X S is either competitive or better in any specification.
