Apple has just introduced iPhone 11 Pro And it's a beauty – even though hardly anything has changed externally since the release of the iPhone X in 2017. But it is undoubtedly the best iOS phone to date best android phones, the Samsung Galaxy S10?
Both devices are incremental upgrades of their predecessors best phones available. In terms of features and price, they are undoubtedly two of the top flagship phones of the year 2019.
But what makes them different? We've divided a comparison into key categories to see how these top devices perform. Wondering which ad is the better one? Curious, what packs a better suite of cameras? We cover you.
iPhone 11 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 Design
In terms of design, both phones look very similar to their predecessors. The curved display and camera layout of the Samsung Galaxy S10 "Infinity Edge" are a style, while the iPhone 11 Pro is a rounded rectangle. With Samsung's 6.1-inch screen, it's slightly larger than the iPhone 11 Pro's 5.8-inch display when it comes to screen size.
Okay, here's just a comparison: the camera bubble. The Galaxy S10 has decided to stretch its three cameras and flash into a rectangular wedge that looks a bit too angular in an '80s sedan.
But it's probably more attractive than the camera blister on the iPhone 11 Pro, a staggered circular lens inside a square on the back. It looks anything but crooked and will probably divide phone fans into a love-hate relationship … but if anyone wins this beauty contest, it's by far the Galaxy S10.
iPhone 11 Pro against Samsung Galaxy S10 display
The iPhone 11 Pro's 5.8-inch OLED display looks sharper than ever, and it even has the new Gobbeldygook name "Super Retina XDR" year, in which the phone manufacturers sought to provide users with more and more screens To make available.
On the Samsung Galaxy S10, the front-facing camera was reduced to a single hole in the upper-right corner of the display while the fingerprint node on the back was removed in favor of an in-screen sensor. It's more appealing than a notch and the best compromise for this kind of workarounds like pop-up cameras or lens exposure by sliding down the windscreen.
Overall, this is a struggle between OLED and OLED, and though the resolution values are different, they look great on the whole. The 1,440 x 3,040 pixels of the Samsung Galaxy S10 are larger than the 1,125 x 2,436 pixels of the iPhone 11 Pro – which makes sense in view of the larger screen. However, Samsung sets the default resolution to 1080p, which means that this is not the case Really need a lot more than that.
iPhone 11 Pro against Samsung Galaxy S10 camera
In 2019, the iPhone 11 Pro has added a third lens to its repertoire – a 12MP ultrawide lens that captures a 120-degree field of view. The iPhone's X and XS '12 megapixel main and 12-megapixel telephoto lenses have taken great mid-sized photos, but the added breadth of the toolset should complement the Landscapes and Close-Up interior photo set.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has already added a third wide-angle lens in its recording setup, with great results. We loved the 123-degree field of view of the lens, which adds an impressive range and gives us much more context than the typical 90-degree main lens.
Both phones have their settings expanded this year to more lenses, but the competition has been consistently limited to the post-processing software. Apple's earlier phone cameras have made smoother and more accurate shots, but there are a lot of quality of life improvements that make it easier to shoot (for example, when you hold the shutter button down to capture a video, a la Snapchat, or Instagram) Samsung has been trying to improve these its lens range with a dedicated night mode, to acceptable success.
It is clear that both phones have produced the variety of possible recordings, which is a win-win situation for everyone.
iPhone 11 Pro Vs. Samsung Galaxy S10 performance
The iPhone 11 Pro includes the new A13 chipset, making it the fastest iPhone ever. At its September launch, Apple said it was the fastest chip ever in a smartphone. Expect, as with any device since the iPhone X, that this chip takes the AR and AI features of the new phone to a new level.
The iPhone 11 Pro comes with another mystery chip – the U1. Thanks to its ultra-wideband technology, the handset can find other devices that contain the same chip. This was interpreted as a reference to the Apple tags tracking tiles that were not mentioned at the September event. In any case, it's an additional technology that lets devices that run on the contiguous iOS ecosystem work together even better.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with the Snapdragon 855 chip in the US or the Exynos 9820 in the rest of the world – both powerful processors and the best you can get with an Android phone outside the odd half-year upgrade Snapdragon 855 Plus,
Given that none of these devices are 5G-enabled, most of them go hand in hand to process and stream media over mundane networks. In a showdown, we'll see that Apple's new chip surpasses the Snapdragon 855 (the A12 chip was more powerful than the 855 in some tests), but it does not matter: both are capable and fast enough to play games and Watch TV shows.
iPhone 11 Pro against Samsung Galaxy S10 battery
Apple has not announced the specific battery capacity of the iPhone 11 Pro – but this is never the case. According to a previous estimate, the battery of the iPhone XS was 2,658 mAh, and rumored that the new phone was at least 15% larger. However, this measure is less useful for Apple phones, which are much closer to iOS tuned than Android and achieve a reasonable battery life with lower capacity. Expect to be valid at least throughout the day.
Officially, Apple claims that the iPhone 11 Pro has a four-hour longer battery life than the iPhone XS, which, if it's true, is a big leap. The handset also replaced its tired 5W charger with an 18W power supply in the box, which Apple claims will refresh the new phone by 50% in 30 minutes. The wall adapter uses USB-C while the new iPhone stays with Lightning.
Compare that to the Galaxy S10's 3,400mAh battery, which will almost certainly be larger than the capacity of the iPhone 11 Pro, but may not significantly exceed its sustained performance. However, the S10 has a utility advantage: it can charge other devices wirelessly using the Wireless PowerShare feature (also known as Reverse Wireless Charging).
Samsung is no stranger to fast charging – it has a 20 W plug in the box – it picks up the crown with an optional 45 W charger (sold separately). There is also a fast 15W wireless charging that surpasses Apple's 7.5W wireless charging speeds.
The iPhone 11 Pro is the most sophisticated Apple phone yet, and the Galaxy S10 is among the best in the Samsung range. In fact, both companies have not made much progress from their predecessors, but they are the top choice for any series if you do not want to bet on "plus" or "max".
It's hard to pick a favorite between them – and not just because we had so little time with the iPhone 11 Pro. The differences are coming iOS 13 and Android 10 I split these phones even more than it seems, after exchanging their data.
But it is also clear that both phones have become camera power plants with a similar spread of main, telephoto and now ultra-wide lenses. If you want a handset to last for years, that's fine too. No phone introduces the features needed to stay ahead of the competition in the near future.
(If you want a tiebreaker, you can simply say that we would not pick the phone with a particular camera suite that looks like an electric razor head.)
(I'm just saying.)
