Samsung Galaxy S9 VS PIXEL 2 XL – KING of the ANDROIDS?

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

Hey guys what's going on Carl here back with another episode and today we are comparing the Titans the kings of the crop of the Android scene of course we've got the brand new Galaxy S 9 against I would say the pinnacle from 2017 the pixel to excel so naturally the S 9 is the newer device it just came out it's around 2 weeks ago I was at MWC in Barcelona and the pixel 2 has been out now for quite some time but still this is a video that a lot of you want to see in case you're wondering which phone you should grab so we'll start things off with the design over on the s9 we aren't seeing too big of a change from the s8

Of last year I've got that right here we've still got the live edge display and front-facing wise you probably can't notice a difference the s9 is 25% brighter but as I said unless you have both side by side you probably won't be able to see that on the back we still have gloss panels they now have the fingerprint sensor lower on the s9 which means you won't smudge up the camera and won't reach for it awkwardly I still think Samsung could have gone a tad bit lower with a fingerprint sensor may be somewhere around here the display is awesome and comparing

That over to the pixel 2 I think the s9 definitely takes the cake it sets the precedent for an edge-to-edge display we have little to no bezels whereas the pixel to the XL still does I find that the Super AMOLED display is nicer colors pop better things look more vibrant and over on the pixel – slightly under saturated it has that tinge of blue especially when you look off axis I know there's a few software updates that have helped change that but still my money goes to the s9 if you're looking solely for the display it's gorgeous and has become even more

Beautiful 25 percent brighter means it is more beautiful so chipsets internally both guys are going to cruise through everything that you throw at them as the s9 is newer it has the Snapdragon 845 whereas the pixel to the snap dragan 835 is there a performance difference I honestly haven't seen them in the tests that I've done I'm essentially just going in between apps multitasking taking photos recording video switching back and both are a very lag free experience I will say though that the bloatware over on the pixel – as it has stock Android is less than

What we have on the s9 TouchWiz not perfect it is getting better but you can still download a stock launcher like Nova Launcher in case you want to make it more stock Android esque the s9 sadly still has good old Bixby it still has that dedicated button which you can't change over on Google we have ok Google Google assistant and that will still activate over on the s9 I just wish you could remove Bixby or they could fix it it's something that Samsung just needs to figure out and figure out fast Google can't help with BIC speed I think the main difference here might

Come down to the camera and I will leave my full dedicated camera comparison of these guys right up here so make sure you check that out and even though the s9 has a dual aperture camera F 1.5 – 2 point 4 which means the low-light photos at the sky are the best that I've seen I still think the pixel – takes better photos in general they don't look as washed out there's a bit more detail there's more dynamic range the colors just seem to be better whereas on the s9 slightly more saturated slightly overexposed sometimes it does bring a lot of good things as I said that super

Low-light performance and of course this does record at 960 frames per second super slow-mo which is a ton of fun doing it's just the everyday photos the snaps that you take 90% of the time I'm still giving it to the pixel – the one thing that the s9 will bring home the title for is these surround speakers I honestly think these have the best sounding speakers for a flagship phone let's try to do a quick little test here this is the s9 let's put it up to the speaker over on the pixel – obviously very tough for you guys to tell through this video but definitely the s9 takes

The cake it's fuller it's deeper and just sounds better than the pixel – anyways when it comes down to it I think if you grab either you definitely won't be disappointed if you're looking solely for looks for the display I would give that bump over to the s9 if you're looking for the best smartphone camera stock Android faster updates that's where of course the pixel 2 shines and just don't forget about the front-facing speakers over on the s9 curious though to hear your thoughts down below which device you would end up getting and if you perhaps want to see

An epic Android giveaway whether it's the pixel – s9 let me know which device you'd prefer down below in the comments and I will catch the rest of you in one of my next episodes or vlogs peace
