iPhone 13 Pro Max vs Samsung S21 Ultra Comparison

iPhone 13 Pro Max vs Samsung S21 Ultra

The iPhone 13 Pro Max and the Samsung S21 Ultra are both top-of-the-line devices and among the best-selling smartphones from Apple and Samsung. They both feature high-performance components, and they are both equipped with the latest smartphone features and technology. To help you choose your next device, read about their differences here below. The iPhone 13 Pro Max price is £701 for the 128GB version on Back Market.

iPhone 13 Pro Max, XXL battery life

Both of these smartphones have brilliant designs, and they also share impressive screen quality. On the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the 6.7-inch AMOLED panel is a joy to watch content on. The brightness of the screen far exceeds that of the Samsung S21 Ultra too. However, the S21 Ultra also has one of the largest screens available, at 6.8 inches.

In terms of performance, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has its A15 Bionic chip against an Exynos 2100 for the S21 Ultra. According to spec sheets, Apple seems to have the advantage in pure power, but in reality it's hard to tell the difference because their speed and ability are so comparable. However, the iPhone does use the A15's optimization to gain an advantage in terms of battery life. It offers almost 10 hours of use under every day conditions. However, it does take much longer to charge than the S21 Ultra.

Samsung S21 Ultra, an advantage in photography

The iPhone 13 Pro Max is very versatile when it comes to photography. It has a triple camera module with 12 MP for each sensor. The Samsung S21 Ultra, on the other hand, has 108 MP for its main sensor, a 10MP x3 telephoto lens, 10MP periscope lens, and a 12MP ultrawide angle lens. It is also capable of shooting 8K video, compared to the 4K of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. It's also the lighter of the two smartphones, weighing in at 227 grams, compared to 240 grams for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Do you use your smartphone intensively and want the longest battery life? Turn to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Are you a photography enthusiast? The Samsung S21 Ultra is better suited for you.
