    Whichever one works for you the best! They are both good phones with different operating system. Figure out what you need/want out of your phone and see which one offers more of what you need/want.

    Android is basically an ugly copy of iOS at this point. The iPhone X looks so amazing, but the notch is really holding it back! Off of pure aesthetics the S9 wins, however the iPhone X will be supported longer and has better, more useful features, giving you the best bang for your buck!

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Yay! Another one of these threads? This one, like the many before it, will turn into another endless iOS v Android argument that will only cease when a mod closes the thread.

    What it really comes down to is through the software experience. Both phones have their own technological advancements, but one has to ask themself, do they prefer android or iOS? Software should be one of the main determining factors. Hardware wise, they both are excellent. Of course the notch seems controversial for some.

    If you want an Android Phone? S9 is best.
    If you like iOS? Go with the X.
    If you don’t like either OS? Microsoft is selling Lumias again?

    The iPhone X gives you the best bang for your buck? Funny guy. Especially as you’ve stated in another thread that the price is “downright funny”.

    Overall, I think the S9 Plus is the best bang for the buck.

    Me, personally, I'd go for the Kalamzoo 9000 with version 3.2T of the KalaOS. Sweet phone, amazing battery life...

    Is this really what we've come down to these days? People, go with what works for YOU - don't be a follower. If you can't decide then flip a coin for it'll be just as fruitful as any 'argument' you get here...

    Weird. I could have sworn he was asking between the X and the S9.

    In the long run! Both of these devices are very overpriced! However if you can afford to drop $1k on a phone, the iPhone is going to last longer than the Galaxy S9, thus giving you more bang for your buck.

    If you're a Mac user the X is best, if not then whichever makes you happy is best.

    I think Samsung makes great phones and as a former Samsung owner (S3 was last I owed) I prefer Apple for it's simplicity. So like the majority it depends on what works for you. I've since gone all in on Apple in the past year owning basically every Apple product with the exception of the HomePod. My recommendation to friends/family is if you want a customizable device that you want to tinker with every setting that ever existed then go Samsun...on the flip side if you want simplicity and something that just works and works well then go iPhone.

    The S9 is a complete package in your hand. It has basically everything of the best that the technology can offer. The iPhone X is a pretty piece of glass with an handicaped OS which main purpose is to keep you in Apple's ecosystem.
    I'd choose the S9 without a doubt.

    And naturally you'd say that being a Samsung owner.

    I'd never begin to compare my 7plus with an X as I see them as two radically different devices.

    Nobody is comparing them and your logic has no point since we can't also compare the S9 to the X since the S9 isn't even out yet, even though the 7Plus has the same OS as the X, those who come from previous iPhones already know what waits for them on the X since it's basically the same thing besides swiping to the home screen instead of pressing a button.

    Yet you obviously felt sure enough to recommended the S9. Odd how you feel you have enough evidence to do that, despite saying there's not enough evidence to do that.

    As I said I and basically everyone will be choosing their favourite based on their previous experiences. Your argument has no point since you are only distorting what I said in the first post by adding useless arguments that won't make you look smarter.

    Nope, I'm saying that it's way too early to make a decision on a phone no-ones had any chance to use. You apparently feel you don't need to even think about that.

    Don't blame me, these are YOUR words.
