iPhone 11 vs Samsung Galaxy S20 Comparison

iPhone 11 vs Samsung Galaxy S20

Apple and Samsung are two of the most renowned smartphone manufacturers. The iPhone 11 and Samsung S20 are among their bestsellers and both offer excellent performance at very competitive prices. To decide between them, one needs to consider their habits and expectations. Here's a little guide to help differentiate the two.

iPhone 11, an interesting price positioning

There's a clear price difference between these two models, with the iPhone 11 being the more affordable option. This is due to significant differences in storage capacity, screen quality (in this case LCD) and the lack of 5G compatibility.

However, it is no match for the Samsung Galaxy S20 when it comes to photography. The iPhone 11 has two cameras compared to the Galaxy S20's three which makes for a less versatile setup. Still, it does offer great resolution for all your shots, day or night. It also allows you to capture steady 4K video thanks to its excellent stabilisation.

The iPhone 11's A13 Bionic chip additionally gives it an edge in raw performance.

Galaxy S20, a state-of-the-art smartphone 

Although slightly more expensive than the iPhone 11, the Samsung Galaxy S20 does remain affordable. It stands out for its three cameras (compared to the iPhone 11's two), its ability to shoot in 8K and its AMOLED technology screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz (compared to the iPhone 11's 60Hz). This makes for a very smooth interface.

However, this beautiful display does take a lot of battery. The Galaxy S20 will require daily charging for most users, whereas the iPhone 11 can last up to a day and a half with modest use.

Of course, the biggest difference between the two models is the operating system. The iPhone 11 runs on iOS while the S20 is on Android. IOS is simpler to use, but Android can be customised more. 

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is best for those users who don't want to make any compromises in performance. It has a lot of features, a very smooth screen and is 5G compatible. For those who would prefer a longer battery life, competitive pricing and ease of use, the iPhone 11 is a better fit.
