It started with Apple debuting animated emoji characters called Animoji with the launch of iPhone X last year. Samsung followed the suit by introducing its own take on the concept which it calls AR Emoji with Galaxy S9. One major difference between the two was that Samsung allowed users to create their custom avatar as an animated emoji. It means it was now Apple's turn to follow which it did by announcing Memoji this year. And as a result, we are here to talk about what exactly is different between Apple's Memoji and Samsung's AR Emoji.
This comparison has been shared by MacRumors where they compared the two features side-by-side. Samsung's AR Emoji is pretty much the same as last year. It lets you use front-camera to scan your face which it automatically turns into the animated emoji. It can then be customized to adjust skin tone, clothing items, and other accessories. Once created, it can be shared as a sticker to others or like any of the preset animated GIFs.
On another hand, Apple's Memoji is quite similar but comes with a ton of customization features. There are just so many possibilities that you are likely to get spoiled for choices. Customization aspect is one thing where Memoji is way ahead of Samsung's AR Emoji. And yes, they can copy your tongue movement and wink too.
If we talk about the resemblance to the human, AR Emoji appears to be closer and more human-like. Apple's Memoji is quite good as well but they appear to be more cartoon-like when compared to the competition. But it is a matter of personal choice whether you like human-like or cartoon-like appearance.
