We compared the phones based on properties, camera properties, connectivity and storage features.

Pick the Best One

Now we are aware of the properties of each and every phone, and it’s time we decide which one is better. In my opinion, Samsung S9 is Samsung’s ultimate triumph over its competitor iPhone. However, let us see how I came to this conclusion.

Let us begin by looking at the design, face it, the way your phone looks makes all the difference in the world to you. Let the truth be spoken. And granted, Samsung has not updated its design, but for once, we need to push through and look beyond the aesthetics and well, class distinctions!

Samsung provides the users with better resolution, better battery life, and a better hardware. Besides, there are always the infamous headphones.

But most importantly, iPhone can create an all engorging hole in your pockets. And as the gadget boy made it apparent to us, Samsung does not.

It is for all these reasons that it can be safely said that, in the current market scenario, the best option for all consumers, is Samsung. Irrespective of what economic class a person belongs to, it is in the consumer’s welfare to buy what gives maximum utility and does not damage the pockets.

We missed an important above i.e. anti-theft feature. How can we neglect that?
Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X both have anti-theft and may affect how you are able to master reset the device. Anti-theft Turn on if a Google ID has already been set in S9 and S9+. On the other hand iPhone X works with Apple id. All the 3 phones allow you to trace the phone in case of lost.
