Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and the Apple iPhone X are the two new high-end handsets giving tough competition to each other in almost every segment be it about the camera quality, display, or performance. The two brawny devices are the perfect blend of beauty and performance. They both house powerful chipset and huge RAM to execute everything smoothly or without any interruption and this blend is quite helpful for the mobile gamers.
Galaxy S9 Plus is powered by Snapdragon 845 processor and the iPhone X gets its immense power from the A11 Bionic chip. Such a powerful configuration ensures a smoother and uninterrupted service. But, when it comes to gaming a strong hardware configuration is just not enough. There are several software side optimizations that go hand in hand with the hardware and thus have their own vital role in providing a lag-free experience when gaming is concerned.

Galaxy S9 Plus and iPhone X are fast enough in executing any tasks or in doing multitasking. They also have a good battery life to let the mobile gamers stick to themselves for longer hours.
The YouTuber XEETECHCARE has come up with yet another comparison that now compares the Galaxy S9 Plus and iPhone X in terms of gaming. The YouTuber plays several high-end games, all of them set at high settings to let you know how the two devices perform.
Apple iPhone X allows the games to be capped at the maximum 60fps by giving a lag-free experience. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus reportedly can't play games for a longer period at this frames per second and the game settings tuned to high settings make only use of the 30fps. However, here, the device seems to be playing the games at around 40fps, still significantly lower than what an iPhone can play. Samsung has provided game launcher to its top Galaxy flagships so that the games could run from one place and in a faster mode.
