OLED can significantly help Apple iPhone to deliver an outstanding display, as with OLED different pixels can brighten up differently. One of the ironic things here is, Samsung is going to supply these OLED enabled display to the Apple.
Samsung’s phones have always delivered outstanding performance when it comes to display of its devices, but, here the competition is between Samsung Galaxy S9, and iPhone 8 who’s display is also manufactured by Samsung (due to which we can expect an extraordinary quality).

So, as per the current speculations, Apple is going to have the best processor.


While Samsung didn’t improve much in its Samsung Galaxy S8 camera, but, significant improvements are expected in the Galaxy S9. Also, the photography is always a standout feature in the Samsung Galaxy phones, and the S9 is simply going to carry this legacy ahead.
Furthermore, by equipping the camera with the Bixby vision, the Samsung has made the camera a bit smarter. It will provide the users the contextual information about what they are viewing from the camera. Also, the 8MP front selfie friendly camera is an added advantage.

On the other hand, Apple is going to completely innovate with the camera. It is expected that the camera would have a vertical configuration, and this dual lens camera will possibly be equipped with AR capabilities.

Operating System

While Apple is planning to launch the new device with iOS 11, Samsung is planning to equip its Galaxy 9 smart phones with Android Nougat 7.0. Android Nougat 7.0 comes with an array of options that make customization much easier and facilitate a whole new range of new features.

One of the features that may give Galaxy 9 a better ranking than Apple iPhone 8 is DeX. With Dex, you can connect your phone to the desktop and use it the way you use the computer or laptop.


When it comes to price, Samsung is always a clear winner because Samsung delivers much more in smaller price. Apple’s phones are priced a bit higher than their Android counterparts. So, like always, Samsung Galaxy S9 would be a little lower in price than Apple iPhone 8.
