Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Beat iPhone X in Bizarre Consumer Reports Ranking

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Beat iPhone X in Bizarre Consumer Reports Ranking

Samsung announced on Friday that it was releasing its Galaxy J2 Pro smartphone in South Korea; but buyers beware, you won't be surfing the web on it.

While the Consumer Reports ranking isn't necessarily a reflection of each device's value, it does drive home the fact that the Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X race to the top is closer than we expected. Samsung introduced a new "Super Speed" Dual Pixel sensor on the Galaxy S9, which is touted by the company to be much better than the one on the Galaxy S8.

Priced at $185 (199,100 won), Samsung's latest smartphone isn't exactly a successor to the Galaxy S9 but has its own unique features that have people talking about it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has many connectivity options such as GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi direct, hotspot, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 & USB 3.1 Type-C. Samsung previously explained that these models need more testing because their engineers have to verify on all local networks instead of just one compatible carrier.

Don't Miss: Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S9: is it worth upgrading? The camera department packs a dual 12MP setup on the back, with both the sensors featuring OIS. The new models have been rated the best in nearly every aspect. The phone also comes with Samsung's trademark always-on functionality. The CEO has made it clear that the foldable phone isn't a gimmick and will only be launched when the company is confident of delivering the best user experience. It is believed that under this combination of letters and numbers hides the Samsung Galaxy J6 2018 model year, which will be a direct and more advanced successor Galaxy J5 (2017).

Concerning pricing, the Samsung Galaxy S8 now retails at Rs. 47,400 for the single 64GB storage variant.

It seems Samsung doesn't want to take a big risk next year, as it's apparently sticking to the same Infinity Display as the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S8 before it. The Galaxy Note 8 launched with Android Nougat and TouchWiz, though Samsung has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo as well in markets. The Galaxy Note 8 in Orchid Grey is priced at Rs 67,990, which is the price of other variants as well.
