iPhone XS Max or Note 9?

I never owned an iPhone and have been on Samsung bandwagon since the first Galaxy.

Currently using S8 now and looking to upgrade, mostly due to shitty camera quality and desire to have a bit more screen real estate.

Anybody used both of these phones? What's your take?

    Pixel 2 XL or 3 XL. Upgraded from S8+ to 2 XL for the same reason, 4 months ago. Love it.

      Currently have the XS Max, X, iPhone 8, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL. The XS Max is overall the best phone, but the Pixels have the best camera (if you care about 100% zoom fine details).

  • Android is so shitty, so shitty, so shitty that I threw my pixel for xs max. Am so happy with iphone that I am kicking myself for using android for the last 4 years. Samsung then pixel.

    Xs max. Smoothest experience ever. Samsung phones tend to lag after a while. Zero reasons to get note 9 considering how similar it’s priced to xs max.

    Bro. Camera on pixel is the best but sw update can fuck up the phone any day. If you want reliable shit go with apple.. better resale value too in case you change in future. Samsung is shit. Pixel is better for droid.

      You’re basing your decision on something that can be fixed with a $10 lightning adapter. I agree it’s annoying that Apple stopped putting in headphone jacks but c’mon, there are good solutions.

      It's not the same. I don't like making compromises with a $1500 phone.

      Think of it as a $1510 phone with no compromises then.

      The adapter can get lost. If I keep it plugged in to the headset then I can't plug in a 3.5mm in someone else's car or home.

      I don't see how people are so fine with this. It's a massive step backwards.

      Leave it to Apple to ruin something good.

    Honestly your choice should be between the XS Max and Pixel 3 XL. Both are excellent phones. It should come down to whether you prefer iOS or Android.

    App quality on iOS is significantly better than android - that’s just a fact. But Android is a much more flexible/open platform so for a techie it’s a hard choice.

      Excess MAX. It’s the maximum excessively sized phone.

      It's not "Excess Max". It's 10 (Roman numeral) S Max.

    Wait... If you think S8 from last year has a shitty camera, you're not going to be particularly impressed with Note 9 or XS. Pixel 3 might the best bet, but not by a lot. Over the last 3 years, camera quality hasn't improved too much year over year.
