Samsung Galaxy 9+ VS iPhone X

Samsung  Galaxy 9+ VS iPhone X

In this article, we’ll be discussing the Samsung Galaxy 9+ vs iPhone X mobile devices. We’ll examine various features such as memory, battery, camera and a host of other fun stuff that makes people love to use the phone. 

One Saturday morning, I took a walk down my street; on my way, I came across two young men arguing so angrily, it was like they were going to beat each other.

It was so funny, curiously, I went to their side of the road to listen up on their argument and realized they were actually arguing about two big brand phones which was the Samsung Galaxy 9+ and iPhone X.

Like really? They are both good phones! So why argue?
So I did a research on some of the points the two young men argued on and I found some details on them.



The S9+ was released on the 16th of March 2018. It is one Samsung Galaxy brand from series S, model SM-G965X. It features 144OP super AMOLED displays with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio; it uses a 6.2 inch panel.

iPhone X

The iPhone X pronounced as (“X” as “TEN”) was released on the 3rd of November 2017. It is one of the Apple Inc brand manufactured by Fox Conn and Pegaton based on contract ; it’s the 11th generation, it’s models are model A1865 with Qual Comm modem, A1901 with Intel modem and A1902 which was sold in Japan.

Both phones have different release date, with 5 months interval, if looked at in a subjective way, you could say the iPhone X is smarter than the S9+ as it was released before it, you could say the S9+ is a copy of the iPhone X also.

Stop your thoughts where they are because both Phones are different from each other but with similar features to each other.



The S9+ comes with a 6GB RAM and a storage option of 64, 128 and 256GB with a feature ability to use a micro SD card to expand the storage to a maximum of 400GB.

iPhone X

The iPhone X comes with a 3GB LPDDR4X RAM with storage of 64GB or 256GB, it has no removable storage.

Unlike the S9+ which allows external SD card, the iPhone X restricts external card.

The iPhone X is good in the hands of anybody but someone with the obsession of excess storage, will find it hard to cope with the iPhone X; although it’s spacious, but not spacious enough for some people.

You can say the iPhone X is operating based on Apple’s high level of security and not wanting of any external attributes or properties.



The S9+ battery capacity is 3500mAh, it’s the same as its predecessors. It has a stereo speaker turned by AKG and the phone also has a Dolby Atmos surround sound support; it is one of the few smart phones that still retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.

iPhone X

The iPhone X uses battery 3.81V10.35W.H (2716mAh) Li-Ion. 

From the two phones battery description, you can verify that the S9+ battery capacity is higher than that of iPhone X, although it doesn’t make it better than the iPhone X neither does it make it lesser, it also doesn’t dispute the fact that both phones produce good power capacity.



S9+ has a dual-lens camera setup on the back like that of the Galaxy Note 8; it also has dual aperture rear camera which can switch between A/1.8 and F/2.4 based on the lightning condition.

The camera of this device has projected a new vision with its ability to capture brilliant pictures in bright day light and super low light, it can shoot 4K at 60frames per second, 1080P at 240frames per second thereby allowing the camera to give a beautiful scenery of a place, it also takes 720P at 960frames per second; this is known as the “super slo-motion” (slows down time to super slow motion).

It has a revolutionary camera that adapts to motion like the human eyes.

iPhone X

The iPhone X has a rear camera of 12MP with six element lens, quad- LED “True Tone” flash with slow sync.

The iPhone X contains of Apple’s All Bionic system-on-chip, also used in the iPhone 8 and 8+ which is a six core processor with two cores optimized for performance (I.e it is 25% faster than the A10 Fusion processor) along with four cores optimized for efficiency (70% faster than the previous generations).

Okay, looking at the S9+ and iPhone X camera, there are some similar features, not so similar though but both gives you a splendid picture.

They both produce high quality pictures.

The S9+ enables you to take videos in motions, allowing the video to portray every detail the user is trying to get. Although it’s hard to get a clear, straight video like imagined but if one puts in more attention and pace, then you could get a perfect video with every needed details.

For the iPhone X, you can choose what detail to get with your video camera, it gives motions according to what it sees not what you want; the iPhone X has an HD effect on pictures therefore making it look realistic while the S9+ projects picture so clearly making it look like it was edited, although it wasn’t.

The S9+ and iPhone X both have Animoji app (an app that allows you to create emojis based on the way you feel.

Finally, both phones have features that allows them to last under water for some time; for the S9+, it features the IP68, which enables it to stay under water as deep as 1.5m for 30 mins and the iPhone X features IP67, which also allows it to stay under water as deep as 1m for 30 mins.

With all these informations, it’s shown that both phones are great, and incomparable but chosen with preference by its users.

I hope this information is of help to you. Thank you.
