Comparing the Latest Generation of Apple vs. Samsung Phones

Battle of the Brands: Apple vs. Samsung Phones

Whether you’re looking to splurge on a luxury device or upgrade while staying within your budget, both Apple and Samsung have perfect solutions. However, if you’re debating a brand switch, read on to learn the key differences between Apple and Samsung smartphones.


While both companies boast phenomenal detail and color in their displays, Samsung sets itself apart here. DisplayMate gave the Galaxy S10 it’s highest ever A+ rating, meaning it fits the bill for those seeking technical perfection. On the other hand, Apple’s iPhone XS includes a new OLED screen, which offers a subtle bump of richness and brightness over the iPhone XR’s LCD screen.


For most people, the photo quality that both Samsung and Apple offer is good enough to act as a dedicated camera, but there are a few differences between the two brands. Samsung offers versatility, with three rear-facing lenses packed onto the S10+ for close, standard, and ultrawide options. Apple focuses instead on dynamic range, utilizing what it calls “Smart HDR” to make photos look better in low light and high contrast situations.


While both brands offer long-lasting battery time and wireless charging, Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and S10+ can charge other products wirelessly as well. Also, Samsung’s Adaptive Power Saving Mode tailors to how and when you use your phone so that you can charge it less frequently.


Apple’s Face ID already worked most of the time, but has been made even more reliable and faster than before on the new generation of iPhone’s. While users sacrifice a bit of display space to make room for the sensors required, the iPhone offers a layer of easy-to-use security that Samsung can’t quite compete with yet.

Although all three of the latest Galaxy phones have a face recognition feature, Samsung states the technology is not secure. Instead, the company suggests using their fingerprint reader, which they claim is more reliable than a traditional fingerprint reader because of the use of ultrasound technology.


Last but not least, there are significant differences in storage capabilities between the two brands. While the iPhone maxes out at 512GB of internal storage, the Samsung phones come with a MicroSD card expansion slot. The Galaxy S10+ comes with a terabyte of internal capacity so, with the MicroSD card addition, can leave you with triple the space over the iPhone XS Max.

Making a Decision

If you’re on the fence between these two manufacturers, it’s best to choose one that matches your lifestyle. The iPhone allows for greater security, low light capability, and speed. However, Samsung’s models offer more versatility, expandable memory, and longer battery life.
