Face to face: Galaxy Note 9, iPhone X, LG V35, Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium

The Galaxy Note 9 came as one of the most premium phones on  the market, integrating excellent specifications and a starting price of nothing more and nothing less than US $ 999, the same price of the iPhone X and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium .

The great advantage of the Galaxy Note 9 is its stylus that brings a lot of features and is the best you can find on a cell phone.

It is also the only one of these cell phones that can be purchased with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage with a microSD slot that allows it to be extended up to 1TB. In addition, its 4,000mAh battery is the largest in this group of cell phones mentioned, including that of LG’s best cell phone , V35 ThinQ .

The iPhone X has the advantage in easy recognition and is the best cell phone with iOS that can be purchased today, while it is also the most compact of this group of cell phones. Although the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has the same screen size as the iPhone X (5.8 inches), its body and bevels make it much larger.

However, the Xperia XZ2 Premium stands out because it has a 4K screen, it manages to record 4K video with HDR and its recording in slow motion of 960fps as the Samsung cell phone has a Full HD resolution instead of HD.

For its part, the LG V35 ThinQ is the one that offers the best sound quality through hearing aids, since it has a high fidelity sound amplifier, but the Xperia XZ2 Premium is not far away.

All these phones have a water resistance of IP68 (up to 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes), except the iPhone X which is IP67 (up to 1 meter for the same time).

Also, all these phones have a microSD card slot and a fingerprint reader, except for the iPhone X.

On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 9 and the LG V35 are the only ones with a traditional hearing aid connector. In addition, with the exception of the LG V35, all these phones have a double horn, although the only one with a front horn is the Xperia XZ2 Premium.

Although the Galaxy Note 9 is the one with the largest screen of all (6.4 inches), I think the most uncomfortable to hold in one hand is the Xperia XZ2 Premium.

On a positive note, the Galaxy Note 9 brings 128GB of base storage, while the others have 64GB.

In performance, there is not much to complain about here since they are all very fast and fluid, but in terms of functions it is clear that the Galaxy Note 9 is the leader. However, they all have special characteristics that could make them better for some users than others.

We compared the specifications and other features of the Galaxy Note 9 with the iPhone X, LG V35 ThinQ and Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium to better understand their differences.
