Two brands rule over the smartphone market all over the world, namely Apple and Samsung. This rivalry has started from 2009-10, and every year, this rivalry comes to the surface when each brand launches the new edition of their phone. This time also, it is no different. Apple has launched it’s iPhone 11 Pro, and Samsung has launched its Galaxy S10. Although each year, the prices of these smartphones are higher than the previous one, people who are fond of using the latest models of smartphones buy them, regardless of the high and costly prices. There are certain aspects to be seen when we talk about the two latest phones that have taken over the smartphone market.
The iPhone 11 Pro
The iPhone 11 Pro has come in two different models, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The main thing, which differentiates the two models of this year’s iPhone with the previous year’s series, is the camera. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have three cameras this time. The option of HDR, Live Mode, Time Lapse, and Slo-Mo have been introduced in the iPhone long ago, but improvements have been made in this year’s edition. Apple has a twelve-megapixel wide camera and has added another twelve-megapixel ultra-wide camera in the iPhone 11. Therefore, the camera is suitable for taking wide-angle pictures, making vlogs, and for taking beauty and action shots. The phone shoots with 4K quality, at 60 fps in all its cameras. In addition to that, Apple has introduced the night mode, meaning there is no more facing problem in taking pictures in low light. The front camera now has access to the slo-mo as well, meaning you could make your video on slo-mo mode. Also, this year, there is the option of an audio zoom in, meaning that the voice recorded in the video can increase and decrease according to the zoom-in of the camera.
There is not much difference in the design from its predecessors. The iPhone 11 Pro has a curved rectangular shape, with the Apple sign in the middle of the back of the phone rather than being upwards. The camera placement has gained some criticism from the public of being odd-shaped and giving an unpleasant look to the phone as the three cameras are arranged triangularly together. The iPhone 11 Pro has come in two sizes. The iPhone 11 Pro is a 5.8 inch OLED display, just like the iPhone X and XS, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5 OLED display. The iPhone has continued to build its phone on a full-screen basis, and it has still not got rid of the notch.
The iPhone 11 Pro has the A13 chipset, which is claimed to be customized for the extremely rapid performance of the phone. It is claimed to be the “fastest iPhone yet.” Moreover, it also has another chip, the U1. This chip allows the iPhone to locate other Apple devices with a similar chip.
Apple does not announce the exact battery, but it claims to be 15% more than the previous iPhone XS. It means that the battery life is 4 hours longer than the previous model. The charging plug, which was previously 5W, is replaced by 18W, with no changes in the lightning cable for the phone. It claims to charge the phone 50% in thirty minutes, with the new charging plug.
The iPhone 11 Pro is of the same price as its predecessors. 11 Pro starts at the cost of $999, and the 11 Pro Max starts at $1099. The customers are shocked that even though the prices are still high, Apple has managed to keep its costs unchanged this year.
Samsung Galaxy S10
The Samsung Galaxy S10 also comes in two models, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+.
Just like the latest iPhone, the Galaxy S10 also has three back cameras. It has a twelve-megapixel telephoto camera, twelve-megapixel wide-angle camera, and sixteen-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The ultra-wide camera gives a 123-degree field of view. The ultra-wide camera allows the user to shoot wide and tall pictures, both horizontally and vertically. The F2.4 aperture mode gives precise camera results in bright daylight, whereas the F1.5 aperture mode acts as a night mode, providing clear pictures in the dark as well. There are two front cameras, one is the eight-megapixel RGB depth camera, and the second one is the ten-megapixel selfie camera. The front camera is introduced with 4K UHD recording and live focus for the users.
The Galaxy S10 is rectangular shaped. Instead of putting the three cameras together like in the iPhone 11 Pro, Samsung has given its cameras a stretched look at the backside. Instead of placing the front cameras in the middle of the screen, the front cameras are located at the top right corner of the screen. Samsung is keeping up with the trend of the full-screen display and has its screen stretched from end-to-end. The S10 has a 6.1-inch AMOLED display, and the S10+ has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display.
The Galaxy S10 is supported by the Snapdragon 855 chip or the Exynos 9820, which are both very powerful processors, enabling the phone to give fast performance. The phone has the feature of wireless charging 2.0, meaning that the phone can act as a wireless charger for other Samsung devices, having the feature of wireless charging. It also means that another phone can be charged because of this new feature of Wireless Powershare.
The battery life of the S10 is 24 hours, as claimed by the company. The S10 has a battery capacity of 3400mAh, and the S10+ has a battery capacity of 4100mAh.
The S10’s starting prices were about $899, and the starting price of the Galaxy S10+ is $999.
Which one to buy?
When choosing a phone to buy, most of the time, it is the brand loyalty, which you have to follow, because of the previous user-friendly experiences the company has given. If the camera is concerned, both the phones give excellent results; rather, it is front or the rear camera. However, if the usage of the phone is for long hours, the Galaxy S10 has the upper hand as it has better battery life. As long as the screen size and design matters, Samsung again takes the lead as compared to Apple. However, if you’re looking for a fast processor and that the phone speed does not lack, iPhone has the upper hand. It is up to the user what aspect of a smartphone they prioritize first.
