It's no surprise that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the iPhone XS Max are two of the (if not the) most celebrated devices this year. Sammy's Note line has always been the poweruser's dream — the phones where Samsung drops the latest and greatest commercially available hardware and packs its software full of features.

Depending on which variant of each phone you go for, they can be comparable in price. The Galaxy Note 9 starts at $999 for its 128 GB version and has a 512 GB variant that goes for $1,249.

But because I could only choose one, I went with the design, because we could technically use other launchers and rooms but we can't change the build quality and design. posted on 20 Nov 2014, 05:56 4 3.

Samsung made massive strides with the Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha this year, the design of the S6 doesn't worry me much.

Hallyu (banned) (Posts: 790; Member since: 21 Jul 2015) Exactly. From the record, Snapdragon has never performed any better than Exynos because Exynos is pure Samsung tech which we can say it has the world's most advanced manufacturing process. And guess what, the upcoming snapdragon 820 will be made by Samsung's amazing 14nm die shrink. In conclusion, Samsung is God of technology. posted on 21 Sep 2015, 10:23 14 18. Napalm_3nema (Posts: 2236; Member since: 14 Jun 2013) Exynos is Samsung manufacturing technology, but it is pure ARM design. Samsung has never designed their own processors.
