Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11 Comparison

Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11: excellent in different ways

You're probably reading this Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11 comparison because you want to know which of these phones is better and why, but it's not that simple.

Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11: the Note 10 is more stylish than the iPhone 11

First of all, the Note 10 is much sleeker than the iPhone 11. It's also much thinner. The Samsung Note 10 has an OLED screen with a much higher colour contrast than the iPhone 11's LCD screen. The fact that its front camera is inside the perforated screen also makes it more modern. We really wish Apple would do something to get rid of that notch in the screen. In terms of appearance and style, we think the Samsung Note is the clear winner in this comparison between the Note 10 and iPhone 11.

Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11: battery life

Although the Note 10 is thinner and feels better in the hand, this slim design has prevented Samsung from putting a bigger battery in the device. And yes, although the battery is bigger than the iPhone's (3500 mAh for the Samsung vs. 3110 mAh for the iPhone 11), it consumes a lot more energy, because the OLED screen is more power hungry than the LCD screen of the iPhone 11. 

Also, don't forget that Apple iOS is known to be much more power efficient than Android OS. You can probably get a few more hours of average battery life out of the iPhone 11, but that doesn't mean the Note 10 has bad battery life as both will easily get you through the day without needing to recharge.

Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11: Processor and speed, which device is faster?

When you compare the chips in the iPhone 11 and Note 10, you're comparing Apple's A13 Bionic to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 in the Samsung Note 10. While Apple's chips are known to be faster than their Android counterparts, you probably won't notice the difference when using these phones. They're both equipped with top-notch chips that will keep both devices fast for years to come.

Galaxy Note 10 vs iPhone 11: camera performance

When you compare the cameras on the Note 10 and iPhone 11, you'll find they both have high-quality sensors and multiple lenses. While the iPhone 11 has a better night mode and more natural colour reproduction in most scenarios, there really isn't too much difference to call a clear winner here.

What will ultimately make you choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and iPhone 11? The iPhone 11 price or the costs of the Note 10?

These two phones have comparable specifications and were built to compete directly with each other at the time of release, but what will ultimately make you choose one over the other is most likely your preference for Android or Apple iOS. 

Don't feel obliged to stick with one platform; as many have switched back and forth between Android and Apple over the years, since both possess different strengths and weaknesses. Just ask yourself if you want your next phone to have the seamless simplicity of the Apple iOS or the ease of customisation with Android? We hope these tips have helped you decide between the Galaxy Note 10 and iPhone 11 :)
