This is the new Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9 +: the new rival of the iPhone X

Today, the presentations have started at the MWC 2018 held at the Fira de Barcelona, ​​the most important telephony convention in the world. If you want to know more about what the MWC is, I recommend you watch the video recorded by José Morales (@geekdegafas) for the YouTube channel of Android Help. In the MWC just a few minutes ago the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +, one of the biggest competition of the flagship of Apple, the iPhone X. In this post we want to make a comparison of these devices at a technical level and our first impressions. Will this bet exceed the iPhone X? Let's find out

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +: the new problem of the iPhone X

Just a few minutes ago, Samsung's new flagship device, the Galaxy S9 / S9 +, was presented and the features that we have seen have been fantastic, as they have already accustomed us in the South Korean company. We must wait to have it in our hands to make a real comparison between the iPhone X and this terminal, but at the hardware level we can already dazzle a winner.
Although the device itself and all the technical features have been on the table for several weeks, we obviously wanted to wait for the official presentation of the terminal to avoid unpleasant surprises.
In the following table we have summarized all the specifications that we know, comparing them with those we have in the iPhone X:
Something that Samsung has focused on without any doubt is in the camera. They have included something very interesting that is variable opening depending on the lighting conditions that exist at the time of taking the picture. 
In the first tests we have seen in those lucky ones who have had the terminal a few hours before what was expected in their hands has surprised by how well it works a priori in low light conditions. We do not have this on the iPhone X, which goes a little wrong in environments that do not have optimal lighting. This will surely turn the camera of the new Samsung device into the top of the market making Apple have to work more on future terminals.
The front camera of the Galaxy S9 if we look at its specifications is much better than we have on the iPhone X. In the Apple device have clung to characteristics that have dragged several generations something I do not understand, although it is true that they have included the possibility of portrait mode. Apple, they are eating you in this field, started the Pixel 2 XL and now Samsung. 
In terms of price little we can talk, have not overcome the barrier of 1000 euros with the Galaxy S9 + in the most basic version  (almost), something we appreciate and should copy in Cupertino. They have practically reached 1000 euros in reality, but they are not 1159 €.
In autonomy nothing to comment The battery of the S9 + is 3,500 mAh, significantly exceeding that of the iPhone X , and this will obviously be noticed in the hours of use. For when a competent Apple battery? To make it clear I ask for a better battery because in my case the battery comes to me at roughly 7:00 p.m., when I have to activate the low power mode. After testing the generation of Samsung as the Note 8, the battery had greater capacity and gave me more life. Maybe those 3,500 mAh do not translate into greater autonomy in this S9. We should wait to try it. 
If we talk about the most negative of the Galaxy S9 / S9 + where I think the iPhone X wins street is in the design. From Apple they finally changed the design on the iPhone X, something that the Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9 + has not had. We see a continuist design with the previous generation except for the correction in the fingerprint sensor, which is now somewhat more accessible.
Then we have now what they have called AR emojis, a copy of the Animojis of the iPhone X, something that will be something that will be used the first day and that's it.
In terms of technologies we will have to compare them with both devices in hand, but the little we are seeing in the presentation is quite appealing . I hope that from Apple take note and leave us all with their mouths open in the month of September.
What follows me without convincing is the situation of the fingerprint reader. It seems that they have not had enough time to integrate it on the screen either.
Remember that everything that is happening in the MWC and the best analysis of the new devices, including those of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 + that will be presented, you will find in Android Help and in MovilZona . And remember that you will find this device to book in the Amazon itself.
