Galaxy Note9 lags iPhone X in performance

The Samsung Galaxy Note9, with its processor and graphics performance, is facing the iPhone X and other Android competitors. Galaxy Note9 is behind the iPhone X with both graphics and processor performance.

According to many people, the new Samsung Galaxy Note9 is the most powerful device of the Android ecosystem. What do the comparison results say in this regard? Tom's Guide tests the Geekbench 4 and 3DMark Slingshot Extreme 3.1 with a Snapdragon 845 processor and a Galaxy Note9 with 6GB of RAM, to see if the Galaxy Note9 is indeed the most powerful Android device and whether it has succeeded in keeping the iPhone X behind

Unfortunately, the results of the Galaxy Note9 are well below expectations. Having achieved 10,357 points in multi-core performance in Geekbench 4, the iPhone X is still the strongest processor, although it has been almost a year since its introduction. In the second place, there is OnePlus 6 which managed to get 9,088 points in a surprising way. Galaxy Note9 can only find himself in third place with 8,876 points. Still, Samsung proves that Galaxy Note9's performance improves by 35% over Galaxy Note8, as claimed in the launch, with Geebench 4 points.

If we look at the results of 3DMark Slingshot Extreme 3.1, it gets worse. OnePlus 6 is the smartest phone with the best graphics performance with 5,124 points. iPhone X is second with 4,994 points. Galaxy Note9 is third with 4,639 points. The fact that the OnePlus 6 tested has 8GB of RAM can be effective if it is superior to its competitors. But the fact that the Galaxy Note9 is behind iPhone X, introduced almost a year ago, shows that Samsung is making a mistake somewhere. It is also important to note that synthetic tests do not reflect the results obtained in daily life.
