Galaxy S9 vs iPhone XS – Clash of the Titans!

by birtanpublished on August 21, 2020

Hey guys fuckin nose my see here with Andrew police in my hand I got the galaxy s 9 and the iPhone 10 s let's compare the two and see which one comes out on top first off both phones look marvelous even though they both have the same form factor as their processors

They're still in my top 5 for the best looking phones at 2018 the galaxy s 9 has a pebble style look and has a bit more comfortable to hold the new 10s thanks to its more excessive all-around curvature however the tennis does feel a

Bit more premium because of the stainless steel frame and the gold color finish but I still think the s9 wins this category only because the 10s has a camera bump overly sized notch and no headphone jack the s9 does have a

Headphone jack and doesn't have a notch or a camera bump since both phones have a glass back you're bound to obtain a slippery hold and a few fingerprint smudges so don't forget to pick up a skin from D brand to

Fix those two issues I'm a huge fan of the newly released Black Matrix series so I slap that skin on both flagships in my opinion that gives any device a professional look any bit of style thanks to the hexagon pattern I'll drop

A link right below that like button if you want to check it out for the display it's pretty obvious that the Galaxy S 9 is the better option it's higher in resolution doesn't have a notch has a better pixel density and according to

GSM marina it even has a similar screen to body ratio to the 10s still that's not to say that these knez has an unattractive screen the panel is Super AMOLED like on the galaxy s 9 and thanks to that fact alone the screen looks

Really good at around 1080p now when you want to unlock the devices with biometric methods the iPhone uses face ID only while the S 9 has facial recognition and iris scanner and a fingerprint scanner a lot more options

But which of the two smart phones will give you an easier time with the unlocking process well when comparing facial recognition the iPhone comes out on top it recognizes and unlocks a lot faster than the S 9 is way more secure

Same goes with the comparison of the iris scanner and base ID however when comparing the fingerprint sensor on the S 9 with base ID on the 10s the fingerprint scanner comes out on top only because with face ID you need

To stare directly into the phone for it to recognize your face and when you unlock the phone you'll still be on the lock screen so you need to swipe up to go to your home screen with the fingerprint scanner you just need to tap

And hold it once and you're already on your home screen as for the software this one's a tough one to generalise since each phone is running a couple different platform and they both have their ups and downs the 10s is running

IOS 12 while the Galaxy S 9 is running Samsung experience 9.0 on Android Oreo Samsung experience has way more features and options for customization in iOS 12 for example there's a feature called separate apps sound to play Spotify

Media just on my Bluetooth speaker while everything is piped through my phone the theme store to customize the icons always on display and overall theme smart select to capture certain areas of the screen the always-on display to

Quickly check my notifications and the time without having to turn on the screen secure folder to make any file or app private good luck 2018 which is a gem mine for customization and more I can go on and on but you get the point

Android in general is just way more customizable than iOS iOS 12 is a bit more simple and less feature packed but what I really enjoyed using an iOS / Android is iMessage since it has way more features and SMS messaging

Shortcuts which is an app like Samsung's routines app but with a bit more functionality such as being able to create quick shortcut and then creating your own voice command to trigger that task within Siri the gesture NAB bar in

My opinion is way more intuitive than Samsung's three button nav bar and gives you a bit more screen real estate screen time to limit the amount of time you should be using your phone by locking yourself out of addicting apps when you

Use those apps over a set amount of time and a few more exclusive features if you want to see a more in-depth review of iOS 12 vs. stock Android then click the I in the right corner it's my review of the iPhone 10s but in that video I go

Ham on this comparison anyways the software comparison here isn't quite as clear-cut it's hard to say which phone has better software as each one has its advantages if you perform our features an option for customization then the s9

Is your best bet but if you're looking for a simpler interface with everything being more straightforward then the 10s is your go to now performance wise the 10s is much faster and much more fluid with its new 812 Bionic chip there's

Currently no smartphone competitor that can outshine this device even if they have qualcomm slater snapdragon 845 chipset like the s9 animations on the 10s are way smoother I've never experienced any lag application reload

Time is amazing and gaming on this thing is a beast still that's not to say that the s9 is a choppy slow device the bump in performance on the 10s is just more visible when comparing the two phone side-by-side moving on to the

Cameras the iPhone 10's features a dual camera setup while the Galaxy S nine has a single camera with dual apertures however if you get the s nine plus you can also have a dual lens when comparing pictures both phones provide solid

Results photos taken on each device no matter the situation provide plenty of detail have great dynamic range and do great with nighttime shots I will say that the 10s offers much more natural-looking colors with smart HDR

Photos on the s9 have an increased shadow effect and are a bit more sharpened however pictures taking on the iPhones front-facing camera are a bit smoother giving my face a beautified effect by default which is weird because

I've never seen a manufacturer take this route therefore the s9 selfie cam will provide more accurate results probably the biggest thing that Apple made a huge deal about within their camera app is a

New feature to allow you to control the artificial bokeh effect within a picture taking in portrait mode so you can change the dynamic that the field from anywhere between f1 point 4 to f-16 it works extremely well and does a great

Job of not blurring the edges of the subject the s9 has a similar feature called light focus but it doesn't work as well as for the battery I found the iPhone to be the better option even though it has a bit less battery

Capacity than the s9 I saw a screen on time of around 6 hours while the s9 only got me around 3 to 4 hours sometimes it wouldn't even last an entire day if I started to use my social apps more heavily it's probably because of the

Higher resolution display and the heavy Samsung UI plus the standby time on the iPhone is unbeatable if I forget to charge the phone overnight I can still use it in the morning where I left off the only thing

That sucks about the iPhones battery is that charging it is a pain the charger that comes with the phone doesn't have any fast charging mechanism and it literally takes hours to charge it back up to 100% Samsung on the other hand

Provides a quick charge 2.0 out of the box so you can fully juice up the phone in around an hour and thirty minutes so the iPhone has better battery life with better standby time but the s9 has fast charging mechanism out of the box and by

The way both phones have wireless charging it is worth noting that both phones have bluetooth 5.0 NFC water-resistant with an ip68 rating contactless payment method for terminal types and support for all four major US

Carriers features that I didn't mention before that the galaxy s 9 has and the Tenace doesn't have include expandable storage if more color options and a Harvey sensor which can also measure your blood

Pressure the 10's on the other hand has dual sim support can't be upgraded to 512 gigabytes of internal storage with the s9 only having up to 256 gigabytes and a mute switch which is perfect for

Classrooms or the movies finally let's talk about pricing the galaxy s 9 is the cheaper option years since it's been out for a longer amount of time on Amazon it's going to cost you a starting price of around $500 for the 64 gigabyte

Version and you can get the s9 plus for about $100 more the iPhone 10 s will probably break the bank with a starting price of $1000 for the 64 gigabyte version not to mention that the 10 s max has a starting price of $1,100 this is

Such a huge difference in pricing that the S line literally cuts the price in half plus the galaxy s 9 provides a similar experience with the exception of slightly slower performance and an average battery life and it even has a

Better display no not a fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack which is rare nowadays for the iPhone 10 s you're paying some big bucks for that a tool Bionic chip which provides the best

Performance in any smartphone yet iMessage that premium build material and the brand personally the Galaxy S time seems like the obvious choice but maybe not for someone who is in the Apple ecosystem so for that reason I'm going

To let you decide which is the better option you've seen the pros and cons of both phones and heard my opinion now it's up to you to decide if there's a feature that isn't make it or break it deal that's it for this video let me
