The Samsung Galaxy S9 has finally been officially announced! Throughout the day, in addition to the latest information on the new equipment, we are also making comparisons of specifications among the top of the mobile market.
Now we put the Samsung Galaxy S9 next to the Apple iPhone X. Are the specs everything? Or is the ecosystem preferable?
Let’s not take the fanaticism higher. Both types of equipment are of a fantastic caliber. The iPhone X was unveiled by Apple in September and stands out for its irreverence over its predecessors.
On paper, the iPhone has always been lower than the Android range tops. This year will remain the same. However, we must bear in mind that operating systems are different. IOS does not need so much muscle to offer us a fluidity of quality.
Samsung Galaxy S9 wins iPhone X on paper
Even so the Samsung Galaxy S9 compensates. The Plus model comes with 6GB of RAM, but even the “bottom” model deserves to be compared to the top of Apple. That’s why I did not choose S9 Plus. I believe this S9 is good enough to look the iPhone X up front.
While it does not offer us a dual-camera, variable-aperture technology will help us achieve better photos and videos in low light.
The truth is that we can only truly compare them when we have smartphones for review, but I think it will be interesting to see the two side by side in a table of specifications.

While the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + give us more specifications Apple and iPhone X bet on a ecosystem difficult to drop. MacOS, WatchOS and the TV are more than ready to give us a totally different experience.
But will it be enough for Apple? I honestly do not think so. The new Samsung Galaxy S9 give us expected corrections from the S8. It will be an interesting year in the mobile world and 4gnews will be here to bring you all the news!
