The iPhone X may be the most powerful iPhone ever, but compared to almost any other Android flagships, it’s hard to pick out a category where it leads the pack — at least on paper when comparing raw specifications. But if Apple has shown one thing time and again with every iPhone generation, it’s that optimization of hardware and software matter just as much — if not more — than the hard numbers of which phone has more RAM, which is why Apple’s phones tend to perform so well, even with comparatively weaker hardware. That said, it is still informative when considering what phone to buy next to see how the numbers play out head-to-head, so we’ve put Apple’s newest devices up against the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, the Essential Phone, LG V30, and more to see which smartphone’s specs reign supreme.

All three devices feature a slimmer profile as mobile phones edge towards having a taller look, rather than wider. All three feature edge-to-edge displays, but the iPhone X seems to do the best job at utilizing screen space with an almost true edge-to-edge setup, but it will be interesting to see how third-party developers will get around that mini strip at the top of the screen.

Packed with cutting-edge features and carrying a price tag to match, the iPhone X — pronounced “iPhone 10” — is now Apple’s top-of-the-line smartphone. It has, among other features: A nearly edge-to-edge OLED “Super Retina” display, a facial recognition unlocking security system, and wireless inductive charging, similar to the Apple Watch. It will be available on Nov. 3 for $999 and up.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone X have a 5.8 inch display with Super AMOLED technology. Samsung calls their display QHD+ while Apple calls it Super Retina HD. The LG V30 on the other hand features a 6 inch P-OLED display, which uses plastic material instead of glass, even though all three use the same basic active matrix OLED concept. All three devices have a starting storage option of 64GB, with the two Android options come with 4GB RAM and the iPhone X packing a bit less at 3GB RAM. Both Android models have microSD slots which allow up to 256GB of storage, but the iPhone X uses internal only memory, so you have to decide from the date of purchase whether you want the 64GB or 256GB model. Oddly enough, that contradicts with our earlier post about gold iPhone Xs coming with 512GB of storage.
