Galaxy S9: Better Than The iPhone?
With better displays, speakers and a stunning low-light camera, the debate rages on.
Although Samsung released the Galaxy S9 back in March, it’s been making strives to ramps it’s advertising game up against Apple’s iPhone. With the recent release of it’s “Moving On” spot, Samsung does everything it can to make the iPhone look inferior in every way until the girl simply can’t take it anymore and is forced to buy a new Galaxy.
In the spot you’ll notice that the model being compared is a much earlier version of the iPhone (the iPhone 6), not the X which most certainly wouldn’t have any of the problems the 6 may or may not have.
But is the Galaxy really better than the iPhone line? Some may say yes. It’s cheaper, lighter, gets 10 more hours of battery life, has a sharper display, more RAM, has a higher megapixel count on it’s front-facing camera and a lower aperture on it’s rear-facing camera.
Although both the S9 and X have a bezeless design, the S9 feels like you get more end-to-end screen, while the iPhone has a large notch protruding from the top. When it comes to slow motion video, Samsung takes the cake again with creamy 960fps, while the iPhone caps out at 240fps. Another huge aspect that you’ll hear people complaining about is that the newer iPhone’s don’t have a headphone jack without needing a converter, while the Samsung does have one.
With that being said, one big win the iPhone X has over the S9 is it’s amazing ability to unlock and make purchases with the Face ID feature. While the S9 may have a similar feature, it has been reported that it’s not actually as safe and reliable as its rival.
So a lot of what’s been said may make it seem like the Samsung S9 is the clear winner. But the biggest advantage Apple has over the competitor is its ecosystem of products and how they can interact with each other so seamlessly. As Apple users, we can testify to how beautiful it is to have your tablet, phone, headphones, phone, TV and watch all work in perfect harmony (at least for the most part). And for those of you who use iPhones, you can’t deny that there’s a weird feeling you get whenever you receive a text in green instead of blue.
