Samsung Galaxy S9 VS iPhone X

Samsung has announced “Galaxy S9” flagship smartphone on 25 February at MWC 2018. The phone is boasting a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display, Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9810 chipset, Corning Gorilla Glass v5, 64GB of internal memory, 4GB of Ram, 12MP rear, 8MP front-facing camera and 3000mAh long-lasting battery.

On the contrary, Apple iPhone X is equipped with a 5.8-inch OLED display, iOS v11.0.1 operating system, 64/256GB storage, 3GB of RAM, 12MP rear shooter, 7MP front-facing camera, 2716mAh battery and strengthened glass along with IP67 waterproof protection.

Despite, it’s a perennial question that Samsung’s latest phones are better than Apple’s? Here you can check Apple iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9 review and main differences.

Release Date and Price:

The Samsung Galaxy S9 release date in Australia is March 16, 2018. But Samsung Galaxy S9 pre-orders are live now, and Samsung said those who pre-order it before 7 March, will get their devices seven days earlier. Samsung has confirmed the prices in the UK at £739, whereas Samsung Galaxy S9 prices in Australia will be AU$1,199.

On the other hand, Apple iPhone X was released back in November 2017. As far as the price is concerned, the Apple iPhone X Australia costs $999/£999/AU$1,579 for a 64GB variant. While the larger 256GB variant is going to cost you around $1,149/£1,149/AU$1,829 for the privilege.

Design and Display:

The Galaxy S9 comes with an innovative, modern and eye-catching design and it’s merely tweaked of the S8. Whereas the iPhone X represents the most radical change to Apple’s phone design in years – maybe ever. Nonetheless, the virtually all-screen phone is conventional for top-end devices this time around, and these two flagship devices won’t disappoint.

When it comes to the display, Apple iPhone X is the first which is being supported by the OLED display. It’s higher in contrast ratio and produces vibrant colors than the LCD panels. The Samsung Galaxy S9, on the other hand, boasts a Super AMOLED display that gradually curves downwards at the right and left-hand edges.

The S9 is backed by more pixels than iPhone X. It has a screen resolution of 2960 x 1440, while the iPhone X has 2436 x 1125 pixels.


A new camera is one of the significant upgrades on the Galaxy S9 as it comprises a rear-facing 12MP camera. And according to The Guardian, it features “the first variable aperture fitted to a smartphone”. This modulates the shooter’s aperture ration automatically depending on whether you are indoors or outside.

Simultaneously, the iPhone X is equipped with a 12MP dual camera along with OIS on both lenses. Moreover, the iPhone X is capable of augmenting reality emojis, which layer a computer-generated mask over real images.

Animoji / AR emoji:

Apple spent some time adding a new feature called Animoji. It uses the front-facing camera to match your facial movements to an animated emoji such as smiling turd, alien, animal and so on.

Evidently, Samsung has decided to have something comparable, and the Galaxy S9 has a feature called AR emoji. However, it’s a little bit different to Animoji as these are emoji of human faces, and they’re specifically intended to be your face.

Our Verdict:

Though the Apple iPhone X offers extraordinary performance, Samsung Galaxy S9 specs are considerably sharper and the device isn’t marred by a notch if it’s the sort of thing that bothers you. But altogether, these are both stunning-looking and extremely high-specced flagship smartphones.
