Samsung vs iPhone

13 September 2019 | Technology

By Naango Kainge

This has been an ongoing discussion, featured in class debates, a topic among peers as well as memes all over the internet. The Namib Mirabilims believes it is time to break down some facts about the two competitors. We compare which gadget is better in terms of size, camera quality, price and space as well as other additional features.

Samsung has recently just announced its latest pair of smartphones: the galaxy note 10 and note 10 plus. Currently the iPhone’s latest smartphone is the iPhone XS. Compared to the iPhone, Samsung offers a bigger screen an included stylus and additional camera qualities although the iPhone offers more choice to phone storage. If you’re looking for a new smartphone, chances are that you’re considering a phone either made by Apple or Samsung which are the two most popular handset markers.

Let us get a close look at these phones: Samsung Note 12 plus and the iPhone XS.

1. Size:

The iPhone XS is 6.5 inches whereas the Samsung is a bit larger coming in at 6.8 inches.

2. Internal storage

The iPhone XS provides a range of internal storage sizes from 64 GB to 512 GB and the Samsung offers only two options 256 GB and 512 GB.

3. Battery

The iPhone XS has a smaller battery compared to the Samsung (3179 mAh) and the Samsung has a larger battery of 4300 mAh.

4. Camera quality

Most people look for that phone that will be able to capture beautiful moments in life or take that perfect selfie to upload onto Instagram. The iPhone has two main cameras. One is 12 megapixels wide range camera and the other is a 12 megapixel as well, telephoto camera. The Samsung, however, has twice as many cameras. It provides 16 megapixel ultra wide angle camera and a 12 megapixel telephoto camera. In addition the Samsung has a higher selfie resolution compared to the iPhone XS.

5. Wireless charging

Both phones are able to charge wirelessly.

6. Retail Price

Samsung Note 10 plus N$ 20 999. 00

IPhone XS ranges from N$ 24 999. 00 to N$ 31 999. 00 depending on the internal storage size. The more storage the more expensive it gets.

In all, if I had the money I would prefer the Samsung than the iPhone because of the better qualities it possesses although there seems to be a stigma of how an iPhone is better than any other phone. Either way both phones are amazing.
