iPhone vs Samsung – Which Is Better?

There has always been a constant struggle between Android and iOS users. Today you’ll find a lot of people using iOS devices, particularly the iPhone and also a greater number using Android devices. In today’s blog post we’ll be pitching Samsung against the iPhone.

To determine which phone brand is better, we’ll be comparing both brands in terms of their price and value for money, cameras, operating system, and battery quality.

Price and value for money

One of the easiest things to note out when comparing the difference between iPhones and Samsung devices is their price. Apple phones are usually overpriced although Apple fans may disagree. A quick comparison shows that the latest Samsung flagship phone (Samsung Galaxy S21 series) starts at $799 while the iPhone 13 starts at $829. This comparison shows iPhones are more expensive but that doesn’t mean that they are not worth the price. Starting from their seamless iOS software experience to their tight integration with other Apple products amidst other things you can do with an iPhone device, makes them one of the best phones to buy.

Camera

When it comes to camera quality the iPhone usually has an upper hand in this aspect. The iPhone gains more praise in terms of its photo quality, video quality, and image consistency.

Even though camera quality seems to be the iPhone’s strong suit, Samsung devices especially phones from the latest Galaxy S21 series are not lacking behind and the camera experience in that flagship series are more refined, versatile and fun. 

Operating System 

To better understand the difference between the Android operating system and the iOS operating system, I’ll be listing out the advantages and disadvantages of both operating systems.

Battery Quality

No one needs a soothsayer to know that Android wins in this section and that’s because Apple rarely focuses on the battery life. Unlike Apple, Samsung advertises its battery life and fast charging abilities in its adverts.

Even though the iPhone doesn’t have big batteries, its proprietary software is designed to ensure minimal battery usage which results in having your battery lasting longer. Nevertheless, if they were still pitched against each other in terms of battery life, Samsung would win.

In the aspect of charging speed, Samsung still wins here. Even with the new MagSafe chargers, it still takes the iPhone 12 Pro Max 3 hours to go from 0 to 100% while it takes a little over an hour to fill Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra using their 25W Samsung adapter.

Now you can tell some of the major differences between the iPhone and Samsung, are you looking forward to purchasing an iPhone or a Samsung device?
