Xiaomi Mi 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Comparison

Xiaomi Mi 9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10

Known for its advantageous prices, the manufacturer Xiaomi does it again with its Xiaomi Mi 9. Equipped with advanced features and some high-end components, this smartphone is in the same league as the Samsung S10. However, it differs from the Samsung S10 in terms of its price and a number of details.

Xiaomi Mi 9, excellent value for money

The Xiaomi Mi 9 is particularly good value for money and is also very pleasant to use. It runs on Android 9.0, like the Samsung S10, but in a version inspired by Apple's iOS software. This means that former iPhone users don't feel lost and everyone can customise their interface, but it's the Snapdragon 855 processor that really sets it apart. More powerful than the Exynos 9820 of the Samsung S10, it is particularly powerful, does not heat up and is very fluid during use, even with the most recent games. Its battery finally allows it to make the difference. The Samsung S10 is the most powerful smartphone in the world, offering a few more hours of battery life than the Samsung S10, with less power consumption.

Samsung S10, the almost unbeatable smartphone

While the Xiaomi Mi 9 tries to compete with the Samsung S10 on performance, it can't compete on design. The S10 is distinguished by the presence of a screen with curved and thin edges that allow the 6.1-inch SUPER AMOLED panel to occupy nearly 95% of the front surface. The Xiaomi, on the other hand, is content with a slightly more classic design. On the photo side, the S10 smartphone performs better and is more versatile than the Xiaomi Mi 9. The difference? Its triple camera module includes a 12MP main camera, a 12MP (2X) zoom lens and a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens. The main camera is capable of adapting to all environments, including the most difficult (low light, backlighting, etc.).

If you are looking for performance, the Samsung S10 is the best choice. It has a better screen, more advanced features, and overall a premium smartphone. However, the Xiaomi Mi9 is not easily outdone and is very suitable for users who prefer battery life to power and are looking for a more competitive price.
