Every fall we can expect a few things: deciduous changes, cooler temperatures, and Samsung and Apple are launching new phones that fanboys and fangirls will be arguing about until next year. This year, Samsung is shaking things up and bringing two Galaxy Note series phones to market. Let's see how the bigger phones compare. Samsung has released both the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10+ in 2019.
In addition to the significant size differences, there are some changes. Unlike the Galaxy S10 variants, this is not a copy, just a difference in screen size. Instead, the Galaxy Note 10+ is more of a pro version. Here you will find the best that Samsung has to offer. And at least because of the technical data it is a convincing offer.
We know that many of you choose a phone. Will I stay with the brand I know or will I jump to the other mobile operating system? Every phone has some advantages over the other. After some analysis (including some practical analysis) you will find our recommendation here.
This is a blowout, so it's easy: If you want the better phone, get the Galaxy Note 10+. At least on paper there is no comparison. However, if you really want to purchase an Apple device, you should wait a few months for the successor of the iPhone X S Max, which should be more competitive.
] After all, we look at what each of the best big phones from Apple and Samsung brings to the table.
The Galaxy Note 10+ is a better phone for media consumption. For one thing, it has no notch. Instead, Samsung's Infinity-O display uses a hole-sized cut in the display for the front-facing camera. It has a larger screen at 6.8 inches and a higher resolution at 3040×1440. Despite its large screen, it achieves a higher pixel density at 498 ppi.
A weakness in the past for Samsung was fast charging. While other Android phones surpass the limits of their chargers by adding more power, Samsung was quite conservative (likely to avoid a Galaxy Note 7 fiasco). Well, Samsung has finally received the message. The Galaxy Note 10+ supports fast charging with up to 45W, a performance that is not only much faster than the iPhone X S Max, but also one of the fastest on the market. You must spend $ 60 to use this charger as it is not included. However, it includes a 25W fast charger that is 10W faster than the iPhone X S Max can use any charger.
The wireless store has also got a boost. Last year, the Galaxy Note 9 was already able to use Qi chargers with a higher power of up to 15W. This year, Samsung has further increased the gap by increasing its performance to 20W] Charger.
If you enjoy taking photos (or videos), the Galaxy Note 10+ offers many options. The phone's rear-view cameras feature a wide-angle telephoto lens (up to 2x optical zoom), an ultrawide lens, and a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. Only the ToF is not available for direct shooting, although the portrait capture sensor is enabled to accurately decode the depth of an object. You can capture video from any lens (except the ToF sensor), supporting slow motion video at up to 960 fps at 720p.
Why You Should Opt For The iPhone X S Max
The main advantage of the iPhone X S Max is the Apple A12 Bionic SoC. This is the best CPU performance you can achieve with a smartphone. While GPU performance lags behind that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ included in the Galaxy Note 10+, optimizing the operating system more than makes up for it.
In biometrics, facial recognition is technically more accurate than a fingerprint scanner, including the in-display scanner included in the Galaxy Note 10. The use is a breeze and saves you cold hands when you want to unlock your phone outdoors. These sensors also help with the front-facing camera, which uses the data to enhance tracking, depth mapping and AR performance.
Finally there is the price. The EIA is 10+, but there is a new iPhone X S Max for up to $ 100 less. While that's not much, it does make a difference in funding, as it can be the difference between a monthly rate that's within your budget and a rate just above it. You can also use the extra $ 100 for accessories such as a bag or a USB-PD charger and a Lightning-to-USB-C cable because the fast charging current is not included as standard.
