Irish Gazette examines this years hottest phones.

The science of today is the technology of tomorrow. Apple and Samsung are one of the many companies that are creating the technology of tomorrow. One of their latest accomplishments are Apple’s latest iPhone Xs and Samsung’s latest Samsung Galaxy Note 9.Though iPhone Xs and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 are both smartphones, they have many similarities and differences between them.

    One of the major differences between iPhone Xs and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a S-pen which is basically a pen like stylus, which you can write with draw, take pictures and start and stop recording video. You can take pictures and start and stop recording video by pressing the button on s-pen while you are in the camera app.This connected via bluetooth to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The iPhone Xs however does not come with a bluetooth stylus pen which is a bummer.

    One major similarity between iPhone Xs and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is that they both have dual sim. This means that they can use two phone lines on one phone. For example, say that you live in the U.S. but went to France for spring break and you needed your phone. This means that in France you can have cell service if you go to another carrier for the time being.

    Another colossal difference is the headphone jack. Apple stopped putting the headphone jack in the iPhone ever since the iPhone 7 and it has kept this going even with the iPhone Xs. But now they don’t provide the headphone to lightning jack adapter anymore with all of the iPhones. Which is another disappointment in the world of Apple. But Samsung on the other hand, does provide a headphone jack with all of it’s collection of phones.

           One feature that they both the iPhone Xs and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have is their Infinity screen. Apple’s with a 5.8 inch and Samsung’s with a 6.4 inch display. Just with these statistics you can see that Samsung is very generous to its customers on size.

    After everything listed the only thing that matters to you is price. That is obviously a difference between iPhone Xs and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. iPhone Xs is $999.99 at  64 gigabytes while the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is $999.99 at 128 gigabytes storage and has expandable storage up to I terabyte.  I’ll let you the consumer decide.

    Although iPhone Xs and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 are both smartphones, they have many similarities, like their dual sim and Infinity screen features. They also had differences, such as their headphone jack and pricing differences. But essentially, they are the ones creating the technology of tomorrow, so that we can live in the future.
