iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Which has better business Specifications?

iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Which has better business Specifications?

The Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X have the some common features – including their cell phone ratios, brilliant introductory prices, edge less displays and dual cameras. Nevertheless, the top smartphones ultimately serve different user needs, as our equipment comparison shows.

Galaxy Note 8 compared to iPhone X

When mobile phone fans get into the purgatory of vanities, then the new noble smartphones of Samsung and Apple are to blame. This time, however, both manufacturers are pouring oil into the fire with their more than hefty introductory prices of around 1,000 euros (Galaxy Note 8) and 1,150 euros (iPhone X). For this, one must expect exclusivity, because so much money is not really a smartphone. Both manufacturers move here in the price class of very good notebooks, which last many years and are not shifted more or less gently to the siding after two years. The latter is however admitted mainly an Android problem.

“Borderless” design in comparison: Galaxy Note 8 against iPhone X

In spite of all the enthusiasm for the great screens, they are not, of course, either borderless. On the top of the iPhone X, there is a notch that Apple would like to establish as a new trademark of the iPhones of the next decade. Apple even advises its developers in the design guidelines not to hide the notch. Fans should stop worrying accordingly and instead learn to love the score – as strange as it may seem.

iPhone X

The Galaxy Note 8 screen differs in two respects: There are narrow black bands on the upper and lower sides, but on the long sides, the edges are not as good as the bent edge display. This has advantages and disadvantages. The look is pretty cool, and the screen content is not cropped, in turn, the contrast decreases in the curves, if one pays attention.

The Samsung screen takes roughly 85 percent of the front, which is very good. With the iPhone X, however, this value should be higher again. The iPhone X is handier as it is two centimeters shorter and 20 grams lighter. Samsung has a stylus for the fans, according to the manufacturer. Who does not count to these, but it will be too small and nice, but not exactly essential. Both phones are Waterproof.

Top OLED screens now also available for iPhone X

The display quality of both models is first class. We suspect that the Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone X do not give much in this regard since Samsung probably produces the OLED panels for both models. The Note-8-Screen convinces in our test with excellent color rendering and a top brightness of over 700 cd / m虏. According to Apple, the iPhone X is supposed to be over 600 cd / m虏 – both are so bright that you can easily recognize content in sunshine.

Samsung offers with the Galaxy Note 8 a huge image diagonal of 6.3 inches with 2.960 x 1.440 pixels. This corresponds to a crack-sharp 521 pixels per inch / inch (ppi). Apple’s screen is 5.8 inches in comparison smaller (as large as the Galaxy S8), but is of course still huge. Thanks to the resolution of 2,436 x 1,125 pixels, the iPhone X with a still excellent image clarity of 458 ppi. The differences will not be visible to the naked eye (without the help of VR glasses).

iPhone X chart

Similar dual cameras in Both Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X

12 megapixels, dual camera with standard and 2x telesensor – both supported by an optical image stabilizer -, very fast autofocus. As far as the cams of the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X sound very similar. Samsung has barely outperformed on the paper with the maximum aperture of F1.7 for the standard sensor and F2.4 for the telesensor opposite the iPhone X, which offers F1.8 / F2.4.

In addition to the size of the pixels (which Apple does not yet name), the firmware plays an important role. Which mobile phone camera shoots the better pictures, cannot be assessed in advance. The Galaxy Note 8 has a very good picture quality with daylight and twilight light, and also the quality of the 2x-zoom pictures can convince us. The most beautiful photos in bad light shoot according to our measurements currently but the HTC U11. We are curious to see if Apple can take the lead here.

Video fans also get more from Apple: the iPhone X captures clips in either 4K with up to 60 fps or full HD with up to 240 fps. The latter for slow-motion videos in good quality. The Galaxy Note 8 reaches 4K30 or 1080p60. As is to be heard, Samsung wants to update 4K60 by the update.

Which is stronger? Galaxy Note 8 or iPhone X?

In the lead, Apple will be synonymous in terms of processor line. There are no official benchmarks from the Apple A11 processor with six cores; According to benchmarks, both single-core and multi-core performance in the synthetic Geekbench test could be almost twice as high as that of the eight-core Exynos 8895, which is found in Galaxy Note 8. This, of course, remains to be seen. Although the Galaxy Note 8 reacts very quickly and gave us in the test no reason for criticism, the iPhone X will probably be synonymous with everyday life a bit faster.

Apple also uses the power for a sophisticated facial recognition system that analyzes 30,000 facial features in seconds and sounds comfortable and safe. But also tests have yet to confirm. Samsung also offers facial and iris recognition, both of which work quite well but are simpler to knit and can not replace the universal comfort of a well-placed fingerprint scanner.

With the iPhone X, Apple wants to make other augmented reality presentable applications. This lets you, for example, display names of objects in real-time when you place the Handycam on it or place virtual objects in the “real” space. Whether Apple will make this breakthrough, the app selection and quality of the next few months will show.

We also expect that the battery life of both models in our test is roughly comparable (around ten hours), the iPhone X with the included supposedly not fast-charging power supply but significantly longer to be fully operational.

The Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone X are therefore aimed at different users: the first to Android fans, who are looking for a stylish and modern giant-phone and absolutely want the stylus – no matter how much it costs. Galaxy Note 8 is comparatively cheaper than iPhone X. The iPhone X is the years’ most exciting toy for iPhone fans and also for well-heeled engineering enthusiasts an option who are willing to spend a few hundred euros.
