The Galaxy Note 9 has everything you d expect from a top-of-the-line Samsung device in 2018. Even in terms of raw hardware specifications, the Note 9 is a beast, packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and 6/8GB of RAM under the hood.

The comparative testing of two smartphones resulted in Apple iPhone X getting a score of 10,357, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could only manage 8,876. These numbers are a measure of the two devices multi-core performance, as analysed by Geekbench 4. Even OnePlus 6, which is significantly cheaper than the Note 9, got a better score of 9,088.
That s not all! Even on Slingshot Extreme, a demanding graphics benchmarking routine by 3DMark, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was left behind by Apple iPhone X. While the iPhone X scored 4,994 points, the Galaxy Note 9 could score only 4,639 points.

However, all s not bad. According to Tom s Guide, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 smoked Apple iPhone X in terms of display brightness. While the former registered 604 nits, the latter maxed out at 574. The Note 9 s display also covered 224 percent of the sRGB color gamut, far ahead of the measly 128.6 percent scored by the iPhone X.
Samsung s displays are generally regarded as among the best (if not the best) in the business, so it s hardly a surprise that iPhone X couldn’t hold a candle to Galaxy Note 9.
