The Apple iPhone 13 has a score of 91.5, which is slightly better than Galaxy Note9's 87.1 score. Apple iPhone 13's construction is noticeably newer, somewhat thinner and somewhat lighter than the Galaxy Note9. IPhone 13 counts with a superior CPU than Galaxy Note9, because although it has less cores (but faster) and 2 GB lesser RAM, it also counts with a 64-bits processor.

IPhone 13 has just a bit better looking display than Samsung Galaxy Note9, although it has a quite lower resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels, a little smaller display and a little bit worse quantity of pixels per inch in the display. Samsung Galaxy Note9 features a much bigger memory to install applications and games or saving photos and videos than Apple iPhone 13, and although they both have exactly the same 128 GB internal storage, the Samsung Galaxy Note9 also has a SD memory slot that holds up to 512 GB.

The Galaxy Note9 has just a bit better camera than Apple iPhone 13, and although they both have a 12 MP camera in the back, the same video resolution and the same 60 fps video frame rate, the Galaxy Note9 also has a larger aperture. The Samsung Galaxy Note9 counts with longer battery performance than Apple iPhone 13, because it has a 24 percent bigger battery capacity.

Although iPhone 13 is a better device, it is a lot more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Note9, and it doesn't have such a good relation between it's price and quality as the Samsung Galaxy Note9. If you want to save some money, you can get the Samsung Galaxy Note9, and give up some specs and features, but you'll get the most with your savings.
