iPhone X vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Comparison

Apple releasing the iPhone X was foreseen as a game changer for all smartphone companies. With the removal of the iconic circular home button which was one of the oldest designs, the iPhone X dropped with a bang. The whole world waited for its release after its announcement was done by Apple on 17th September 2017. Everyone wanted to know how a phone would be operated without the iconic home button and earphone jack and without the presence of a charging port. Many people thought Apple had gone too far this time, they assumed that it was compromising its originality just in the name of innovation.

And yet when it came to the markets, there were huge crowds of people waiting to get their hands on this game-changing iPhone. The release of this phone in some way challenged other smartphone companies to up their game.

Samsung wasn’t going to stay behind, as it wasn’t getting a proper sale for a while. Samsung bombed the market with the “Samsung Galaxy S9” in March 2018. But Samsung doesn’t plan to stop just there, it will be releasing it’s all new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 by August.

Samsung had such confidence in its phone and its abilities, that they even made an advertisement to taunt Apple. The core motive behind the advertisement was to show people how Apple always ends up upgrading their phones and making the phones released before feel useless, how there are long lines of people to get their hands on these newly released Apple products and what a hefty sum it costs even after not being able to last long.

So it was basically a war on all fronts, whether it be publicity, advertisements, innovation or sale. Samsung and Apple went head to head against each other to outshine the other.

All this competition leads many people into confusion as to, which smartphone to buy? Apple’s newly innovated iPhone X that came back a while ago and is still running the markets or Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that will reach the markets within the next few months?

Well to clear your doubts and save you the time of going feature by feature and comparing these two phones, we have done it for you. The data we have gathered for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is by both rumours and official announcements made by the company.
