2. Display e Design
Samsung took the S8 as a baseline and refined it a bit in the S9 version, which isn't bad at all. Being one of the best looking phones on the market, the S9 has one curved screen Super AMOLED yes 5,8 inches. Featuring an extremely sharp 529 pixel display, it has a slim bezel with metal body and gorilla glass.
Apple's flagship device, iPhone X, also has a 5,8 inches, but S9 is a bit longer. Also, the S9 is sharper as the iPhone X features a 458 PPI display. However, the iPhone X has a super retina display with OLED panel and a bezel-less all-screen bezel, which is one of a kind.
At the end of the day, it's the overall performance of the device that matters most. As you know, the iPhone X runs on iOS 11 while the S9 runs on Android 8.0. Samsung S9 runs on Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 while iPhone X has an A11 Bionic processor and an M11 coprocessor. While the iPhone X only has 3GB RAM, the S9 has 4GB RAM. Both smartphones are available in 64 and 256 GB of space.
However, compared to the S9, the iPhone X has better performance. The processor is fast albeit with less RAM, and is capable of multitasking. However, if you want to expand the storage, the S9 is a better option as it supports expandable memory up to 400GB.

While the S9 has a single dual-aperture rear camera of 12MP, the S9 + model has an upgrade to a dual-lens real camera of 12MP each. Double aperture changes between f / 1.5 aperture and f / 2.4 aperture in the S9. On the other hand, iPhone X has a 12MP dual camera with f / 1.7 and f / 2.4 apertures. While the S9 + and iPhone X vie for the best camera quality, the S9 lacks this feature with the presence of a single lens.
However, the S9 is equipped with an 8MP (f / 1.7 aperture) front camera, which is slightly better than Apple's 7MP camera with IR face detection.
Samsung Galaxy S9 has a 3.000mAh battery that supports quick charge 2.0. You will be able to use it for a full day after fully charging. Samsung has a slight advantage over the iPhone X's 2.716mAh battery. Both devices also support wireless charging. As you know, the iPhone X is equipped with a fast charging port.
