For the first time in a while, the fight between Samsung and Apple is really interesting. Unlike previous years, when smaller hands were limited to the Galaxy S series, there is an option for Galaxy Note users this year. Both sides of the aisle have the best options for years with minimal losses.
For Apple users, the iPhone X S is a copy of the iPhone X S max. The only real differences between the two are screen size, resolution, speaker size and battery capacity. With that in mind, you get nearly the same performance as the larger phone, without having to make big compromises.
For Samsung fans, the story looks a bit different. Samsung has made some changes (one of which is the SoC) that limit the performance of the smaller model compared to the Galaxy Note 1
Besides self-identification as a Samsung or Android fan (or Fangirl), there are some good reasons why anyone in the market for a smartphone should get the Galaxy Note 10 over the iPhone X S . It starts with the raw data.
The Galaxy Note 10 has twice the RAM capacity compared to the iPhone X S . This gap widens, considering that the Note 10 supports more storage space through MicroSD expandable storage for up to 2 terabytes .
Cameras is all about options. While the iPhone X S uses the standard rear-end layout of 2018, the layout of the Galaxy Note 10 is firmly in the present. It has another camera. In addition to the standard wide-angle and telephoto lenses, the Galaxy Note 10 also has an ultra-wide-angle lens that lets you see much more in the picture (without having to make a backup copy). Unlike the iPhone X S the main lens is not set to a shutter. Instead, you can use one of two different aperture settings for more flexibility in the lighting.
The Galaxy Note 10 is lighter, though slightly larger than the iPhone. X S . The battery is nearly 1,000 mAh larger, supports wireless charging up to 20 W and includes a 25 W fast charging adapter in the packaging.
Why you should go with the iPhone X S
For those who have the iPhone X S or considering the purchase of one of these phones, Apple has a lot to offer. While it loses value in the battle for the technical data (outside of a sharper screen and some other areas), a phone needs more than just its components. It starts with the price. Since the iPhone X S is almost a year old, you can purchase it at $ 999.99 MSRP. In addition, iPhones have a much better resale value than Galaxies.
The iPhone X S is a smaller phone overall. Its length, width and depth are smaller than the Galaxy Note 10 thanks to its smaller screen size. It is also supported by the Apple A12 Bionic chipset. This system-on-a-chip system offers the best CPU performance (according to most benchmarks) and comparable GPU performance as the Galaxy Note 10 SoCs.
Thanks to Apple's optimizations, its multitasking capability is as good as that of the Galaxy Note 10 despite its lower memory The battery life also benefits from its optimization and offers the best life on the market despite one of the smallest batteries.
And then there's biometrics. Face recognition offers several advantages over a fingerprint scanner. For one thing, it's more accurate. Second, it is easier to unlock the phone when the hands are tied. Face detection also works faster than the Galaxy Note 10 display's ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. The latter was already a drawback to the Galaxy S10 series, and although it has been improved, it is far from perfect.
Finally, there are the differences between iOS and Android, but I do not touch that. If you prefer Apple's software over Google's, this could be a plus for you.
