Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 was the best phone you could buy for about a week. Now Apple has come along and spoiled Samsung’s party with not one but two new phablet-sized phones: the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. While the new iPhones still don’t come with a stylus, Apple did upgrade them in just about every other way. So how does Samsung’s flagship stack up to Apple’s latest handsets? Let’s take a look.

iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone X vs. Note 8: Size

The iPhone X is significantly smaller than the Note 8.

If you’re looking for the absolute biggest phone you can buy, Samsung wins here. It’s Note 8 has a whopping 6.3-inch display, a good deal larger than the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch one. But screen size doesn’t tell the whole story.

With nearly an inch more screen than the iPhone 8 Plus and way more pixels than the X, you’d expect the Note 8 to be a significantly bigger package, but the dimensions are remarkably similar to the Plus:

Note 8: 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm
iPhone 8 Plus: 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.5 mm
iPhone X: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm

The iPhone X’s Supe Retina display is simply gorgeous, but the Note 8’s is no slouch.

Both the Note 8 and the iPhone X feature remarkable displays, with the iPhone X representing Apple’s first foray into OLED screens. Samsung edges the iPhone X when it comes to resolution, but we’ll need to compare the two in person to see which comes out on top when it comes to color and brightness. In pure numbers, however, Samsung takes the crown, both in size and resolution:

Note 8: 6.3-inch, 2960 x 1440 Super AMOLED, HDR, 532ppi
iPhone 8 Plus: 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 LCD, 401ppi
iPhone X: 5.8-inch, 2436 x 1125 OLED, HDR, 458ppi

The A11 chip in the new iPhones is something to behold.

Comparing iPhones to Galaxy phones has never been an apples to apples comparison, but on paper, Apple’s A11 Bionic chip is a screamer. With six cores and 4.3 billion transistors, it looks to give the Note 8’s Snapdragon 835 a real run for its money, at least in terms of raw power. In real-world use, however, the phones will be pretty close in speed, but the Note 8’s 6GB of RAM could pull it closer in benchmarks. Apple has traditionally been stingy with its RAM thanks to the intense iOS optimizations, with the iPhone 8 Plus topping out at 2GB. The A11 chip also integrates an Apple-designed GPU with a three-core design that should give games a boost.

Note 8: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (octo-core, 10nm, up to 2.45GHz)
iPhone 8 Plus: A11 Bionic chip (septa-core)
iPhone X: A11 Bionic chip (septa-core)
