iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9 Real-World Speed Test

We have already seen the devices compared to Samsung's latest flagship handset, the Galaxy Note 9, in a speed test and drop test. While last year's iPhone X lagged behind competitors largely due to a lack of 4x4 MIMO antennas, this year's models incorporate the new antenna technology, which PC Magazine notes should "put them closer to par with other leading flagships".

In addition, testing by Tom's Guide found that the battery life on the iPhone XS was shorter than that of Phone X that preceded it.

PCMag also looked at real-world speed data from Ookla Speedtest (disclosure: ExtremeTech's parent company Ziff Davis also owns Ookla). Apple this time around claimed its iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max to pack the 'most durable glass ever on a smartphone, ' and to everyone's surprise the iPhone XS, XS Max has actually survived an 11-foot drop test on a concrete by Tom's Guide.

Its objective was to be a purchasing agent for Fred Trump's buildings, but it did not function in that manner, The Times said. When he was campaigning, Trump repeatedly boasted of his ability to turn a small loan from his father into his fortune.

The Galaxy Note 9 was an expensive phone at launch, and it's still pretty spendy a month later.

For Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, the S Pen game plan revolves around making the stylus a more natural and meaningful to interact with apps and the smartphone. The iPhone XS showed an average of 6.6Mbps faster downloads on all USA carriers compared with the iPhone X. In Canada, that difference is a whopping 20.2Mbps. It also compared the Google Pixel 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to the Qualcomm-powered iPhone, finding that Apple's lack of 4x4 MIMO antennas made a big difference in speed. T-Mobile comes in at 6.6Mbps, Verizon at 5.7Mbps, and Sprint at 2.3Mbps. Do you think there's room for its multitasking performance to improve? Anyone upgrading from the iPhone 7 would see an even larger 9.9Mbps increase in the U.S. and 31.6Mbps jump in Canada.

All that said, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with its Qualcomm X20 modem still performs a little better than the iPhone XS in the U.S. and Canada. Customers said in areas where their older iPhones used to have 3 or 4 LTE bars consistently, the new iPhones struggle to connect to LTE networks. Apple could fix it via an over-the-air update.
