Iphone xs max and Samsung note 9 are the flagship phones of the companies released in this year.Both are nearly of same size but they differ in several ways.But what’s the best one.A fight between two flagship phones is going to sound a bit crazy right?But stay tuned as we are going to reveal who wins.
Both are big screen phones.But the screen of iphone xs max is a bit larger(by a 0.1 inch)than the Samsung s9.But keep in mind that,big things aren’t always the best.
FIRST IMPRSSION IN MY HANDS
Ya,the first thing that I notice is that note 9 is a bit larger than iphone xs max though its display is smaller than iphone xs max.And i can’t realy feel any weight difference between the two(but realy iphone xs max is a bit heavier than note 9 if you look into our spec table) .The fingerprint sensor of note 8 was just next to the back camera,but in note 9 it’s found just below the back camera.Iphone xs max is a little bit thinner than note 9.Only s9 have a headphone jack.Both phones are rated ip68(can withstand for 30 minutes under 2m of water).Apple says that there new glass front and the back which featured in iphone xs max are the most durable ever in a smartphone(you may agree with this if you have seen the iphone xs droptesting).Note 9 have many colour options to go with.But it’s worthy to say that ,note 9 can’t beat the clean,luxury touch of the iphone xs max.(but I totaly disagree with apple as they haven’t included the headphone jack again).
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE PERFOMENCE
According to geekbench 4 multi-core benchmark test,as you can see iphone xs max is in the lead with a score of 11169.yes obviously,as this has a A12 bionic chipset which is an upgrade of the A11 (which was the world fastest chip in a phone).so iphone xs max is the fastest phone upto now.
SO WHICH ONE HAS A BETTER VIEW(DISPLAY COMPARISON)
Samsung note 9 has more resolution than iphone xs max and it has a super AMOLED display,but it can’t realy beat the Iphone xs max in this game.As studies have proven that iphone xs max have more colour accuracy(though note 9 is bit coloureful)and those have proven that it is the best display ever on a smartphone.Both the screens are equaly bright.
as you seen above delta-E score of iphone xs max is closer to 0 than note 9,that means it is more colour accurate.
HOW ABOUT THE BATTERY LIFE
This is one of the main facts that i consider when buying phones.A phone may contain lot of specs to deal with,but all of it gets limited due to this simple fact.So here is the summary,
Battery capacity-Li-ion 4000MAh
Battery life when fully charged-11 hours and 16 minutes.
Battery capacity-Li-ion 3174MAh
Battery life when fully charged-10 hours and 38 minutes
Time to recharge-3 hours and 21 minutes.
HOW THEY SHOOT(CAMERA COMPARISON)
In here both are head to head,But iphone xs max wins as it shoot more brighte,more detailed photos with more colour deapth.Let me explain, it shoot more bright photos due to a new sensor in it,which also play the role of making photos with more colour depth.And also it contain smart HDR option which also add an extra value.
Iphone xs max offers face ID so that you can unlock it by just looking at it.Note 9 also offer this but which is not secure as face ID.And you can use face ID to do mobile payments.
SOME MORE FEATURES OF IPHONE XS MAX
-Ability to create animoji and memoji.
-It offers dual pane view in certain apps(like calander etc).
-It now offer dual sim capability.
SOME MORE FEATURES OF NOTE 9
-Improved s-pen with Bluetooth connectivity.
-Samsung dex(you can use it as a mini pc by connecting it into a large monitor).
WHO IS THE WINNER
So if we take a look at our overall comparison,iphone xs max has beaten the note 9.As,
-It has a more catchy design
-it is more powerful
-the display is better than note 9
-the camera is better than note 9
-it is more secure.
BUT IS THAT MEAN YOU SHOULD NOT CONSIDER NOTE 9?
NO,Iphone xs max is about $100 more than the note 9,But in note 9 with all these facilities at just starting price you get twice the storage space than the iphone xs max.So as long as price is considerd still note 9 is a best option to go with.
