Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Galaxy S9+ vs iPhone X vs Galaxy S9+ vs LG G7 ThinQ
The Galaxy Note 9 is now official, and just as one might expect, it would be continuously measured up against the ever-so-fierce competition, comprised by the likes of Apple's top-end iPhones and the very best Android has to offer.

Now that the S Pen-toting smartphone behemoth has been unveiled as one of the most spec'd out devices of the year so far.

But how does it compare against the very best the competition has to offer? Needless to say, this is always a recurring question that beckons answering, and we are once again happy to provide.

We will put the new Note 9 against the Apple iPhone X, still the most advanced iPhone Apple has made so far, and the not-too-shabby LG G7 ThinQ.
