    I have the Note 9.. it's junk the processor is slow... my old ZTE is better.. I should have never bought it.. I'm getting a iPhone xs max..

    I hate when people argue, yes note 9 has better display and iPhone XS Max has a slightly faster processor but it’s all personal preference

    I have the XS MAX & My Queen has the Note 9... she’s Definitely more of a Samsung Fan as I actually like Both but I PREFER Apple products this time around because it’s Ecosystem is second to none!! I had An Entire Samsung lineup for the last few years until I just simply decided to give the IPhone a try again beginning with the 6 into the iPhone 8 and then the X but when I held the XS Max I was locked in!! I even followed up with the Series 4 from the Series 1 as well as the iPad and haven’t been disappointed! With that said I had to upgrade the Queen with the Note 9 for Valentines Day, all a matter of preference as both are HIGH AS ALL HELL but are worth it!!

    Excellent job highlighting the OLED color shifts with viewing angle on both the Note 9 and XS max.

    I have the iPhone Xs max and the thing is a fucking waste of size,money and processor's so basic and primitive,just large like a brick.with Note 9 you get the S-Pen and stylus function so large size is actually usable.

    I hate the Iphone big time with the ugly notch, camera bump and very expensive compared to samsung is worth buying with s-pen and One-Handed mode, dual speaker, dolby atmos dual camera with slo-mo, no bump, bigger screen, Edge screen, brightness 1200 nits, AOD- always on display, Picture in Picture, 3 biometric, no notch blocking the beautiful oled screen, Super Amoled WQHD 2960x1440 screen resolution, up to 512g extra storage, multi display window, Liquid Cooling, live wallpaper, Customization, bigger battery, 6 or 8 bigger ram, head phone jack, fast charger and headphone included in the box, can also use VR and Samsung Dex Station, now tell me what does Iphone have to make me want to buy Iphone. Iphone is using Samsung Oled screen, Its true Iphone is boring why should i waste my money for boring phone. Think about it what do you do with the phone for a second, minute and hour, stare at it, what do you like to see on the phone, for $1500. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been reviewed on Consumer Reports, they have outed the iPhone XS Max review as well and as expected the Galaxy Note 9 retains its number one spot. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs iPhone XS Max rivalry ends with the Note 9 taking the win, at least on Consumer Reports' website.

    I used Note 8 and I liked everything about it such as :
    - S pen
    - Split screen
    - G maps which doesn't go away when someone calls me
    - More free apps
    - Easy to connect to any PC
    - Can be customized
    But I hated the following:
    - ADs
    - Battery drains like hell!
    - Apps are not as sharp and detailed as iPhone apps.
    - the performance slows down ltl bt.
    - face recognition is still primitive.
    - not easy holding on hand (slips).
    I'll wait Note 10 so let's see.

      nope. iphones are for people who want to be productive and get their work done, like me. I use my phone for work and all my files syncs to my macbook. android on the other hand is for kids who want to play games or watch their favorite kids shows.

    Iphone xs max literally has the same icons and look as the 1st gen iPhone released 12 years ago!!!... It looks exactly the same.. it's like a child's phone to me and there's nothing you can do on an iPhone they are so boring..everyone I see with an iPhone only uses the Facebook app and takes selfies cuz they are lame af and children... its like comparing a nice laptop with tons of features, customization and things to do with a phone filled with candy lol that happens to cost $1200.. that comes with a 5w charger that takes 3 and a half hours to charge your phone 😂😂 what a joke...

    I picked up on the note 9 AT&t carrier. 512gb black phone. Updated it to Android pie. I'm very happy :-) but man it cost a lot of money. I upgraded from the note 8.. I paid for both phones fully out. Never owned a iPhone. But I would like to try the iPhone. But I'm not leaving Android.

    Need your help in buying a new phone. I'm torn between note9 and xs. The price of the iphone is just way too high and I've been an android user ever since. I do have a MacBook pro and iPad air. i think this is the best time to get an iPhone but I'm not sure about the price and how it performs. Pls help planning to buy this week. Thanks in advance

    apple iphone Everything else. But call recording does not work. And the true caller does not work in Apple as working in Androide. Due to both of these I will not upgrade from my samsung Galaxy Note 9 to Apple Mobile. Think of it. People of the Apple Company. my Both of these will be available in Apple Mobile and then upgrade from Android to Apple Mobile.
