Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max


The battle of the titans has just got a little fiercer.

There are currently two big guys in the smartphone industry. We are of course talking about Samsung and Apple. Apple released their 11 series in the fall of 2019 while Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20 series this month. Of the two luxury smartphone lines, two are the cream of the crop. The Galaxy S20 Ultra and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Which of the two is better?

It is clear that the match-up of these two big boys is actually not fair at all. Apple is not necessarily known for providing great specs for the price that they charge for their devices. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the best you can get in the 11 series, but it definitely can’t compete with the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

For example, Samsung gives their top device (at least) three times as much RAM as Apple. The entry-level version of the Galaxy S20 Ultra has twice as much storage space as the iPhone equivalent, up to 9 times as high camera resolution and more than three times as many megapixels in the selfie camera module. The big gap between the two keeps getting bigger.

There is, however, a considerable difference in price. The iPhone 11 Pro Max via Apple costs no less than two hundred euros less than the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Now Apple’s topper has been out for a while, which may partly explain the price difference. Nevertheless, it may be clear that the S20 Ultra is indeed quite pricey, even for Apple standards.

And apart from the price, I, a seasoned Android user, always make the point for Apple that it controls software very well. For example, look at the iPhone 11 Pro Max vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ battery test. Apple sweeps the floor with Samsung. Milliampères are nice and nice, but ultimately it’s how you use it.
