Yesterday, Samsung presented the new Galaxy Note 9, phablet top of the range with a 6.4 “display. The device can rely on the excellent processor Snapdragon 845 Qualcomm and 6GB / 8GB RAM, but the first benchmark reveals that, in terms of performance, is superseded by iPhone X.

In the Geekbench 4 test, iPhone X surpassed all other devices with a score of 10357. The Galaxy Note 9 instead, “only” 8876.
Geekbench 4 measures overall performance and Note 9 provides excellent performance in multi-core benchmark tests. Note 9 got a score of 8876, which is much higher than the score of Note 8. It also exceeds the Pixel 2 XL of Google, which however uses a Snapdragon 835, just like the Note 8.
In the Slingshot Extreme test, which is one of the most reliable 3DMark, the Galaxy Note 9 is once again outdated. This time to get the best is OnePlus 6, with a score of 5124, and in second place we find iPhone X with 4994. The score for Note 9 is 4639.

The Galaxy Note 9 instead went better in the tests related to the display. The AMOLED panel of the device recorded an excellent 224% of the sRGB color gamut, so much better than iPhone X (128.6%). In addition, the Galaxy Note 9 emitted 604 nit brightness in the test, surpassing iPhone X (574 nits).
The results of the benchmarks in question do not describe the Galaxy Note 9 as a smartphone of dubious quality, indeed. The new phablet from Samsung will certainly give a hard time to the competition, relying on features that other manufacturers have not yet implemented properly (such as support for the S Pen). It is however interesting to note that iPhone X (presented in 2017) gets better results than a smartphone in mid-2018.
