Your comparison is beyond ridiculous. You (correctly) give a bid edge to the iPhone X for performance, but then you give just a 1-point edge on battery to the Note 9, where ALL reviews and battery comparison has showed quite a large difference in favor of the Note 9.
Also, you give the edge to the X on features because of the 3d camera? seriously? Aside from the unlocking what else it's useful for, emoji?? Compared to the Note 9 having a full featured spen with additional BT features, an headphone jack, both fingerprint and eye scanner, faster network speeds, 128gb of internal storage, 6gb of RAM... and I could go on.
I always knew that Tom's guide has a clear preference for anything Apple, but your comparison is disgraceful.
This comparison is ridiculous. The author (who's obviously an Apple fanboy) tried too hard to make iPhone win and did a miserable job at it. The features section speaks for itself, yet somehow, out of the blue iPhone wins it. Bad job!
