iPhone XS vs Galaxy S9 Plus Camera Comparison
As it stands, the mobile market has reached a plateau, where very nearly every device features a beautiful design, powerful specs, and excellent battery life. It’s more or less been that way for the past few years, with companies attempting to differentiate through things like software and innovations like in-display fingerprint sensors.
While most phones are on the same playing field when it comes to aesthetics and features, not all cameras are created equal. Sure, for the purposes of social media, the quality between mobile cameras is pretty miniscule. But there are good cameras and then there are great cameras. These two phones fall into the latter category, but one is clearly better.
This year, we didn’t so much see hardware improvements as we did with software. The iPhone XS and iPhone X have similar camera specs, but the iPhone XS features a delicate integration of systems that makes Smart HDR an incredible addition to Apple’s arsenal.
Samsung’s latest devices, including the Galaxy S9 Plus, have made fewer hardware and software improvements compared to its closest competitors. But the Galaxy S9 Plus’s camera is still no slouch. With a 12-megapixel sensor, 4K video recording, and portrait mode support, Samsung’s device takes excellent photos and continues to improve with new updates.
