Smartphone Flagship Stacks up- Samsung Galaxy S9 v/s Iphone X
The smartphones flagship stacks up so high and Samsung is kicking off the 2018 phone race with its traditionally early announcement of Galaxy S9 and S9+ at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain a follow up to last year’s Galaxy S8. However, till date, it was assumed that iPhone X is one of the most high-end and desirable phones available on the planet but with the arrival of these extraordinary smartphones, it’s now got some serious competition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S9.
Well, the two phones have a number of similarities including their OLED screen technology and focus on photography but there’s a whole lot more that’s different. Now I am pretty sure that tech journalists and bloggers will spend ample of time in the upcoming weeks comparing the two smartphones exactly like I did.

Samsung Galaxy S9 comprises of a high-end design which is quite familiar with a glass back, a metal frame and a curvy screen. It also has small bezels above and below the display and its IP68 certified. This means it can be submerged up to 1.5 meters deep in water for around 30 minutes. Whereas the iPhone X is completely a new design for Apple and with even less bezel on the front, just a small notch jutting into the screen it arguably looks more modern than Samsung. The screen is flat though and it too has a glass back and a metal frame. The iPhone X is also water resistant and can be submerged up to 1 meter deep for up to 30 minutes.
Galaxy S9 is slightly larger and thicker than iPhone X, but not as wide as, at 147.7 x 68.7 x 8.5mm to the iPhone X’s 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm. At 163g, the Galaxy S9 is lighter than the 174g iPhone X. If one thing that might work in S9’s favor depends on whether or not you’re happy to go wire-free is that it has a headphone port, which the iPhone X doesn’t.
Both Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X have 5.8 inch super AMOLED screens with wide aspect ratios, i.e. 18.5:9 in the case of the S9 and 19.5:9 for X. Speaking about it differences,
