Samsung Galaxy S9+ vs Apple iPhone X vs Google Pixel 2 XL: Price, Specifications Compared

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+were unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event, ahead of MWC 2018, in Barcelona on Sunday. The latest offerings in Samsung's flagship series have a similar design compared to the previous-gen Galaxy S8 duo, albeit with refreshed internals and several new feature additions. Both phones come with the latest Exynos 9810 SoC (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in some markets), new AR emojis, improved cameras with variable aperture (Galaxy S9+ has a dual rear camera setup), and full screen displays with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Despite the performance and features that the Galaxy S9+ promises, the smartphone faces stiff competition from the likes of the Apple iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 XL.

The Apple iPhone X was launched way back in September 2017. Despite that, it is still one of the most popular and powerful handsets in the world, with features like an edge-to-edge display (with a notch), the Apple A11 Bionic SoC, and a vertical dual rear camera setup. On the other hand, the Google Pixel 2 XL was made official in November 2017. The phone runs a stock version of Android Oreo, and has initial access to all major Androidupdates for the near future. Apart from that, the Pixel 2 XL has premium specifications such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC and an 18:9 display. Here's a look at the Galaxy S9 price, specifications, and key features and we compare them with those of the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL to help you make the final decision
