February 22, 2019 – If you plan to buy a new smartphone, this start of 2019 is a perfect time. Many companies are launching new devices with interesting features and innovative design. It is the case of Samsung that presented the new range of Galaxy S10, with mobile phones that are characterized by the hole on the screen. Among the new features, it is also necessary to mention the Xiaomi Mi9, the new top of the range of the Chinese company which, as usual, presents an excellent quality-price ratio.
If you do not have budget problems to buy the new smartphone, we suggest 2 of the best smartphones on the market: the Galaxy S10 + and the Xiaomi Mi9. These are 2 very similar mobile phones that ensure high performance. They are much more than just top-of-the-range smartphones, and premium smartphones can easily be defined. Choose between Galaxy S10 + and Xiaomi Mi is not so simple and our comparison will help you buy the smartphone that best suits your characteristics.
It is difficult to make a comparison on these smartphones that have obtained very high scores on the benchmark platforms. The Galaxy S10 + mounts an Exynos 9820 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 128GB / 512GB of internal memory, with the ability to expand it using a microSD. A special version with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of internal memory is also available.
The Xiaomi Mi9 mounts the new Snapdragon 855 processor, supported by 6 / 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space. Also, in this case, there is a special version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Both devices also incorporate an artificial intelligence chip that improves smartphone performance and shot quality.
Screen and design
Very different choices regarding design. Samsung decided to experiment by minimizing the frames and inserting a hole on the screen. Even Xiaomi wanted to innovate the design of its top of the range: on the Mi9, we find a very small notch inserted at the top center.
As for the screen, we have 2 smartphones with rather generous dimensions. The Galaxy S10 + features a dynamic AMOLED screen with 6.4-inch curved edges and a QuadHD + resolution. The Mi9 uses a 6.39-inch display made by Samsung with FullHD + resolution.
In recent years, Xiaomi has made big steps forward on the photographic sector, as demonstrated by the scores obtained by the Mi9 on the DxOMark benchmark site. Mi9 is the best smartphone to record video and one of the best for taking pictures. The merit is of the sensors mounted by Xiaomi. At the back, we find a triple camera with a 48MP main sensor, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens.
We also find a similar solution on the Samsung Galaxy S10 +. The smartphone has a triple rear camera with a 12MP main sensor, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 16MP wide-angle lens. On the front, we find a dual camera with a 10MP main sensor and 8MP secondary dedicated to the depth of field.
Manufacturers value the security of users’ personal data and integrate innovative technologies to protect access to their smartphone. The Galaxy S10 + integrates a sensor for the supersonic fingerprints under the screen and the facial release via the front camera. The same solution also used by the Mi9: facial release and biometric sensor under the screen.
Battery and recharge
On the Galaxy S10 + we find a 4100mAh battery with support for fast wireless charging. The phone also incorporates a special technology called ” reverse change ” that allows you to use the smartphone to charge other wireless devices, such as headphones. The Mi9 mounts a 3300mAh battery with fast wireless charging.
If you intend to buy one of these devices you must have it clearly in mind that the price will be very high. But with some exceptions. To purchase the Galaxy S10 + it is necessary to pay more than 1000 euros ($1139). 3 different versions are available, which differ in terms of RAM and internal memory.
Here are the prices of the Galaxy S10 + :
Galaxy S10 + : 8GB / 128GB to 1029 euros ($1172)
Galaxy S10 + : 8GB / 512GB to 1279 euros ($1457)
Galaxy S10 + : 12GB / 1TB at 1639 euros ($1867)
The Xiaomi Mi9 will arrive in Italy in the 6 / 64GB and 8 / 128GB versions. The price is really very interesting: for the basic version you have to spend 449 euros ($511), while for the best performing model the price increases by 50 euros ($56).
