iPhone X vs. Galaxy S9+ Camera: Which Smartphone Has a Better Sensor?

And yes, we have been toting with by taking a look at Samsung’s new flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, as these two devices are the iPhone X’s biggest competition. Some of the proofs interpret that Apple’s iPhone X provides best performance against Samsung’s Galaxy S9/S9+, so we’ve today a comparison of the two camera sensor for you.

In latest video, available to witness on YouTube channel, has compared the Galaxy S9+’s dual-lens camera with variable aperture to the vertical dual-lens camera in the iPhone X.

If you have a closer look at, Samsung decided to focus heavily on image quality in its latest devices, and the S9+ has a 12-megapixel f/1.5 to f/2.4 variable aperture lens as its main camera, which is paired with a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto lens, similar to what’s available currently in the iPhone X.

Obviously, a variable aperture is unique to Samsung’s new devices, and it offers some benefits that are going to improve image quality. With a variable aperture, it’s easier to find a balance between light and image quality.

At that wider f/1.5 aperture, the Galaxy S9+ camera lets it more light in low light conditions, but a wider aperture tends to compromise image sharpness at the edges of the photo. If the lighting is better, the narrower f/2.4 aperture will provide a crisper higher-quality image. The Galaxy S9+ can automatically select the proper aperture when shooting or capturing photos for the best image.

The iPhone X has two lenses like the Galaxy S9+, but no adjustable aperture, and that gives the S9+ a bit of an edge. Both the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9+ have great cameras that are capable of taking some gorgeously amazing images.

In the photos below, the shots were used an automatic mode to capture the images, and no editing was done. This image of a sunset demonstrates some key differences between the two cameras. The S9+ offers a crisper image with more definition, but the colors in the iPhone X image are warmer and more true to life.

Also, the Galaxy S9+ has a “Live Focus” mode, similar to Portrait Mode on the iPhone X. When both the Live Focus with Portrait Mode compared, both of these modes have some issues, but making adjustments to blur is easier on the Galaxy S9+, which gives it the win over the iPhone X. In general, the Galaxy S9 also have more built-in image editing tools with its Pro Mode for taking manual photos.

In addition to images, there’s also a look at video modes. Samsung’s Galaxy S9 can record in slow motion at 960FPS, a unique feature because the iPhone X’s slo-mo maxes out at 240 FPS. Both devices can now record in 4K video with optical image stabilization, but the Galaxy S9+’s video was less jittery. The iPhone X did win out when it came to suppressing outdoor wind sound, though.

These cameras, however, as mentioned before – are great and can capture images that are on par with DSLR in some aspects, but there’s a situation as are definitely some features that make the Galaxy S9+ ever so slightly better than iPhone X when it comes to image and video quality.

Apple is reportedly going to be introducing the successor to the iPhone X in about six months. With that said, the camera improvements which may come with every new upgrade. Its likely iPhones coming in 2018 will outshine the Galaxy S9+. While another rumor surfaced recently suggests Samsung Galaxy S10 is on its way with advanced 3D facial recognition feature.
