And within a year it will be more wide spread even if 8ts not yet which in turn nullifies your argument even if it wasnt available yet.

You are so arrogant.

The problem with your argument is that it's inaccurate/ factual incorrect, or some might say BS.

Boronator pointed this out on 15 Sep 2019:
"Dude, I don't know from where you got your prices. I've checked the launch prices in UK of s9 and s9+ and 4 UK sites saying consistent "So now what about the price? The S9 will be £739 and the S9+ will be £869. So still cheaper than the iPhone X!"
So s9+ launch price was £870 and s9 £739. Even if you compared s9+ it had 128GB base storage and 6GB of RAM... And still cheaper than 1k. I don't know how the iPhone got better amoled display, when Samsung made it.".

You reply with "Yes prices vary and even now if u walk into any tesco mobile store, the price is still retailing at 780. Yes it can be had cheaper in other places but point is still valid for that price and only 4gb ram on Base model".

"Yes prices vary".
Lol, come on, no bonafide retailer would charge more than the launch price of £739 for the Samsung Galaxy S9 SM-G960F 64GB.
Even the 256GB Samsung Galaxy S9 SM-G960F/DS was only £846 at launch, so please provide proof of the S9 being £900 at launch, because it looks like you made it up to make the XS look good in your comparison, please tell the truth & back it up with facts, don't be blind biased.

Look, Tesco's sell the S9 for £499 Sim Free:
https://www.tesco.com/phones/products/0880164309­7363?source=awin&awc=7052_1568652601_e0d61ac­2b15f1465f6286c1f3ffa2a76≻_cmp=aff*awi­n*ghs*http%3A%2F%2Fwww.channeladvisor.com%2Fsolu­tions%2Fwhere-to-b_623297&utm_medium=ghs&­;utm_source=affiliate_window&utm_campaign=af­f*http%3A%2F%2Fwww.channeladvisor.com%2Fsolution­s%2Fwhere-to-b_623297

So I could buy 2 S9's for £998 or buy 1 base model XS:
Samsung Galaxy S9 v's Apple iPhone XS
https://m.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=896­6&idPhone2=9318

€1,000 for the Apple XS is eXce$$ive!
I got my Note9 8GB/512GB with an additional freebie bundled 512GB microSD for less than this a couple of months after launch (I waited for the reviews on XS Max & Mate 20 Pro before deciding), and now nearly a year later it's even better value:
https://m.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_note9-9163­.php

Obviously I never worry about memory, but those paying £1,049/ £1,149 for 64GB (non expandable) of memory on the Pro/ Pro Max (respectively) will.
Clearly they're not worth it, nor do they merit the Pro moniker.
Maybe next year, we'll see?, meanwhile open your eyes & you'll see.

B: if a korean company is the cause that your shares are being devalued, despite launch of your moneymaker , you'd probably not like your investment too. I still appreciate the ipads and apple TV's revenue model though. If it wasn't for them, analysts had predicted anywhere between 12-15 percent drop in stock instead of 2-3 percent they had on September 13 and outlook for apple might change after their earning report for q4...

That's only if I comment on your posts. I chose the s9 to compare and could have chosen any one device which I did. Yes I mentioned earlier s9 plus with 6gb ram so need to repeat what I already said. To some the price is the most important factor and to some it isn't. Like I said ur samsung shares aren't affected so u don't need to get negative :D

Compare phones based on price for once, that is most important metric people use to buy phones, that is why iphone will be sliding to single figures by 2020 and that is why iphone 11 is 699 to try stem that reverse tide

I never mentioned the xs max and never implied anywhere it's inferior. And what u talking about I'm not comparing devices to fiscal years or calender years and comparing devices with same ram. The s9 with 4gb ram. Article is about ram. S9 still comparable to many newer devices and still running Android 9 like most newer devices

There was 6 month difference between launch of both devices, so it's also fair to compare it to device launched 6 months later. Taking fiscal year in account, both xs and s10 were launched in same year, And you conveniently ignore price of s9 at times of iPhone launch. iPhone xs was as costly as a freaking note 9 when it launched, not s9
You basically shafted users of costlier device (xs max) by saying it's inferior one, that's great, so you admit that apple ripped of guys paying 100 pounds more by selling them inferior displays they ordered from Samsung, cool

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2019"Samsung did make the oled screen but apple improved it further.... moreXs was released same year as the s9. The s10 is comparable to this year's iphone 11. Yes obviously the xs max is the better device but Bcuz u failed to read my previous posts, u fail to understand why the xs and s9 were mentioned and not the s9 plus and xs max.
Bcuz the topic wasn't originally about the display but about the ram. The s9 came with 4gb ram and the s9 plus came with 6gb ram. The display comments came later as someone else shifted from main topic about ram and moved onto the displays. So if u read the original comments then u would know why the s9 and xs were mentioned. Learn to read fully before commenting and not just shuffling through comments and cherry picking certain comments to attack

Your assumption is like, I'm using all 4 at once. Man, you seriously have some problem. You ask people with your annoying questions. You have no common sense to understand others. You're too negative! You say that you're a hybrid user and yet you praise iOS and Apple more. Can't help but laugh at your comments, but at the same time, feeling sorry for you.

Read every review especially on this website on the xs oled screen and it will state clearly that it's better than the oled screen on the s9 as apple added some improvements"

"The iPhone XS color accuracy is excellent - we measured an average DeltaE of 1.8 and a maximum deviation of 3. Few phones are as good or better than this, and most of them are in Samsung's ballpark" -GSMarena

"As I stated check the review the xs display was actually better"
"The review on this very website. I have used one and know display is amazing. Don't need to watch a video as I already know from experiencing it"

Again, Have a read on your own comments and see how out of touch they are with reality.
You say I am acting clever, but aren't you purposely ignoring xs max? That one is more expensive, so it should have better display... Or are you saying xs max is not the part of xs series as whole since it has inferior display to xs? You could get s9 for 650 or less by the time iphone was launched, so comparing launch prices is pointless. Both phones have different release cycles, if you are comparing xs with 6 month old phone, should I compare xs with s10 since the time frame between release was 6 months? So who's the one cherry picking now?

And will be able to repair their iphones in the matter of hours. And most of all. They're available anywhere! Meanwhile, on the android side. If you have an android smartphone such as Pocophone F1 for example. And after having it for 8 months. You've encountered some hardware problems along the way. Since you've only ordered it online. Where can you find a repairmen which could repair your un-familiar tech? Especially if they have to order some parts online and will take days for the parts to arrive?

Batteries isn't a problem either since both my note 8 and my iphone 7 plus have powercase with a capacity of 7,000 mah.

And you think I represent ios? I represent BOTH devices since I'm a hybrid user! How about you? You think having to use one mobile OS is enough to suffice ones tech hungry user?

[deleted post]I'm an Android user and I'll have say iOS has one of if not the best RAM management. An iPhone with 3gb RAM will outperform a 4gb RAM Android in terms of RAM management. That 4gb is comparable to if not better than most 6gb RAM devices. 8gb RAM devices are overrated. Like you'll be playing fornite,pubg and elder scrolls blades concurrently.
