A few weeks ago, we showed you a Comparison with the water resistance and shock of the Galaxy S9 + and the iPhone X . Both devices can be considered as the flagships of Samsung and Apple respectively. However, in the high-end field, it has come into play since a few hours ago, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s . Durability can be one of the weaknesses of many devices, and that results in manufacturers having to step on the accelerator when incorporating improvements that make them more resistant to certain conditions trying not to sacrifice the design.
Today we are going to focus on seeing what are the strengths and weaknesses in this and other fields of the latest of the Cupertino, and instead of the improved version of the Galaxy S9 , we will focus on the original model, which can be considered the other jewel in the South Korean technological crown. Finally, we will put them in front of My MIX 2s . Next we will analyze with more depth the aspects in which they can coincide or show significant differences by reviewing the visual aspect, image properties, performance and price among others. Which ones do you choose?
Here we find minimal differences. He Galaxy S9 is somewhat narrower that the iPhone X, staying at 68.7 millimeters compared to 70.9 of the latest Apple. The length is practically the same as in the weight, Samsung’s bet is somewhat lighter than its competitor, with 163 grams compared to 174. However, the most voluminous is the My MIX 2s, which reaches 191 . Here we must clarify that its dimensions are larger, reaching a width of 75 millimeters. One of the biggest attractions of S9 in this regard could be its resistance to water and dust that has given it an IP68 certificate.
Meanwhile, in the case of iPhone , highlights one diagonal that practically occupies all the front , leaving a very narrow band in the lower segment and the one already known eyelash with the front camera and the speaker in the upper one. This contrasts with the total rush of the lateral edges of the Galaxy and the conservation of the two bands, up and down, as it happens in Xiaomi’s mobile.
A slightly more eye-catching panel visually does not have to mean that it’s better. As for the size of the diagonals, the bets of Apple and Samsung , staying in the 5.8 inches compared to 5.99 of the Mi MIX 2s . However, Samsung is still betting on the image endowing its model with a resolution of 2960 × 1440 pixels versus 2436 × 1125 of his American rival. The worst stopped would be the terminal Xiaomi, with 2160 × 1080 . In both cases they are multitouch, although evidently, in the first, the density of dots per inch is greater, reaching 529. The Galaxy S9 has the reinforcement of Corning Gorilla Glass of fifth generation.
In the photographic section, there is also similarities : Two rear lenses that in the case of the iPhone X, they reach the 12 Mpx while in the South Korean and Chinese models they are practically identical. The front of the Apple terminal reaches 7 and its rival, rises to 8. The biggest imbalance we would see in the Xiaomi, which remains in the 5. The first two allow you to record video with 4K resolution . However, here would excel the Galaxy S9 by several characteristics: Slowmotion mode , assistant that allows us to create emojis with our face through a selfie, and a iris scanner which serves as a biometric marker among others.
The characteristics of this field could be considered as one of those that can guarantee that a mobile phone has a good trajectory or that it is more modest. In the field of RAM , highlights the Xiaomi model, which in its superior version reaches 8 GB. In second place we find Samsung , which reaches the 4 GB versus 3 of the iPhone X . The storage capacity of the Mi MIX 2s and the iPhone X is very similar. Both start with 64 GB but its highest version reaches 256. The biggest drawback is that in none of the cases, the Cupertino device can not incorporate Micro SD cards. The Galaxy S9 yes it has a slot that allows you to expand the memory to the 400 GB.
The speed that terminals can reach thanks to the processors is another of the fields in which we can see important changes: A11 of the iPhone X It is considered the best chip of the company to date. In theory, it offers a saving of resources close to 70% compared to its predecessor and reaches frequencies of 2.5 Ghz approximately. In the case of Samsung , we see a manufacturing component of the series itself Exynos which, with its eight cores, reaches 2.8 Ghz that ties with the Snapdragon 845 of the Mi MIX 2s. Both have Android Oreo. However, in the case of Xiaomi, under the customization layer EMUI 9.5.
In this field the winner is the Galaxy S9 . Its battery, 3,000 mAh, is greater than that of the iPhone X, which stays at about 2,700 mAh and also is not removable. Highlights the technology of fast charge of the bet of Samsung, and in addition, the possibility of doing it wirelessly. Greater dimensions of My MIX 2s They also translate into a larger component that reaches the 3,400 mAh of capacity, which would place him above his two rivals.
Samsung and Apple have already put their devices on sale and would fit in the high range, since in both cases, far exceed the 600 euros. The most expensive would be the iPhone X , whose launch price after seeing the light in September was 1159 euros . The Samsung Galaxy S9 , released at the beginning of this 2018, is on sale in portals like Amazon for about 849 and it is also possible to find it on the company’s website. Its superior version, the S9 + has an initial cost of 949. The most economical would be the phablet of Xiaomi, which would start from 420 euros to change in its basic version of 6 GB of RAM and 64 of storage, until reaching 514 of the top model
In your opinion, are they three of the best phablets existing today, or do you think there are terminals from other more powerful and economic firms? We leave you related information such as, for example, the results of the Mi Mix A2 camera tests so you can know more.
