The tenth anniversary of the iPhone has seen the birth of a unique phone. We say unique because it could be that iPhone X would have only one. The range of smartphones from Apple will continue to advance in the next few years, but that X could remain as it is. Therefore, it incorporates exclusive technological innovations that next we compare with the jewel of the crown of its rival, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
OLED display vs. AMOLED
It is the first thing we see and one of the aspects that most take into account the users. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a 6.3-inch screen with Quad HD + Super AMOLED resolution with Mobile HDR Premium technology versus the enhanced 5.8-inch OLED of the iPhone X that Apple has dubbed Super Retina HD. In pixel density the Asian device wins, with 521 pixels per inch compared to the American 458. However, the iPhone X is capable of playing new video technologies like HDR10 and Dolby Vision.
One point in favor of Note 8 is that it makes it possible to multitask with ease, like reading the mail while tweeting, when dividing the screen in two. On the other hand, the screen of the iPhone X uses 3D Touch technology that detects the intensity of pressure, thus offering concept menus.

Processor and Memory
Apple still does not want to see microSDs. The iPhone X does not have this possibility. Instead, it incorporates a six-core chip for the first time. All this along with 3 GB of RAM and memory options of 64 and 256 GB.
Note 8 has an Exynos 8895 8-core brain at 2.3GHz and a 6GB RAM. The internal memory is 64 GB which can be extended up to 256 with a microSD card
Apple, for its part, also bets on two 12-megapixel lenses with 28 and 56 millimeters, wide-angle / – 1.8 and telephoto lens – / 2.4. It also has double optical stabilization and four LED flash with slow synchronization. The 7-megapixel front camera is part of the FaceID Face Recognition System.
Samsung has arrived later than Apple to the fashion of the double cameras. The Note 8 has two lenses of 12 megapixels each, a telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom -f 2,4- and a wide-angle -f 1,7-. From each photo can be obtained several versions with different amplitude, approach to an object and depth of field.

Apple has achieved that the battery mounted on the iPhone X, which seems to be 2,700 mAh – the signature has not revealed -, have up to two hours more autonomy than the iPhone 7, a real achievement in this time. So much in favor of apple company is the wireless charge of the device, which works with the Qi standard. In just 30 minutes we get half the charge with the cable and an Apple USB-C power adapter of 61 W.
The Note 8 battery has been in focus following the fiasco of Note 7. Samsung has designed a smaller battery (3,300 mAh) and safe, this time at the cost of less autonomy.
Price almost prohibitive
Both terminals exceed the psychological barrier of 50000 INR. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is available for 68,000 INR. The iPhone X can already be booked at a price of 89000 INR in its 64 Gb version and 1,05,000 INR in the 256 GB version.
