Samsung’s new Galaxy vs. iPhone X, which is better?

Which are you, Apple or Android?

You know what I’m talking about. Everyone seems to have taken a side in the never-ending battle of gadgets. Apple’s latest rendition of its smartphone, the iPhone X, was billed as a game changer that would set the bar for future designs. (PssT!

Samsung’s new iPhone X killers

Samsung is about to release its latest and greatest smartphone models, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Pre-orders will begin on March 2.

The company appears to be focusing on upgrading its already impressive camera. It said that it didn’t just update the camera, it re-imagined the entire camera experience.

The Dual Aperture lens is designed to adapt like the human eye. It’s able to automatically switch between various lighting conditions with ease, making your pictures pop whether it is bright or dark, day or night.

There’s also a slow-motion tool that allows you to extend key moments of action. Samsung’s new models have also added an AR feature, which allows you to take a selfie and turn yourself into an animated emoji.

The display on both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus have a near bezel-less, full frontal, edge-to-edge screen. Its default resolution is Full HD+ and can be changed to Quad HD+ in Settings.

Those are some of the most interesting features found in these latest Galaxy models. Watch the following video for a brief description of what you can expect.
