DESIGN

Let us take the design as the first parameter for comparison...

Galaxy Note 8
It comes with a thin design featuring a curved screen that nearly covers its face. Eliminating the thick borders leaves no room for a home button, so Samsung moved its fingerprint sensor to the back of the device next to its rear-facing cameras. Overall, the Galaxy Note 8 has a sleek design, but because of all of the exposed glass, consider using a case to keep it from being scratched or broken.

iPhone X
It also comes with a screen that nearly covers its face, but it has ditched the fingerprint sensor altogether. There's no curved display here, and there's a notch at the top of the screen that houses the earpiece and front-facing camera, among other sensors. Apple's iPhone X is made of glass and stainless steel. Like the Galaxy Note 8, it's a good idea to keep the iPhone X in a protective case.

CAMERA

As camera is one of the most important thing to be taken as a parameter while comparing. So now let us take Camera as a parameter

Galaxy Note 8
The Galaxy Note 8 is the first Samsung smartphone to come with dual rear-facing cameras. Both lenses have a 12-megapixel resolution and come with telephoto and wide-angle views to allow for more depth in pictures. They also come with strong performance in low-light conditions. Samsung's 8-megapixel front-facing camera also has a wide aspect ratio for users to take better selfies with friends.

iPhone X
It also has two 12-megapixel rear cameras. The lenses offer wide-angle and telephoto shots, and can also perform well in low-light conditions. Apple's rear cameras are aligned vertically, while Samsung's cameras are aligned horizontally. Whether that will ultimately translate to better or worse photo quality, however, is unknown. The iPhone X's front-facing camera has a 7-megapixel sensor and can record video in full HD resolution.


DISPLAY

The Display of any Smartphone is very important to decide between two of the given...

Galaxy Note 8
Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 display is a whopping
6.3 inches and similarly runs on OLED technology. According to Samsung, its "Infinity Display" has 521 pixels per inch and a higher resolution than the iPhone X's display, which should translate to slightly better picture quality in Samsung's device. It has around 195 gm of weight.

iPhone X
It has an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen, making it the first Apple handset to do so. The screen is 5.8 inches and bundles 458 pixels per inch to deliver high-end visuals. It has around 174 gm of weight.

It also supports aggregation for up to five downlink carriers (5CA) and two carrier aggregation (2CA) on the uplink.

Samsung's device also comes with several security features, including an iris scanner, fingerprint sensor, and face scanner, verify your identity and allow you access to the device's software. Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant is also bundled with the device.
