Galaxy S10 vs iPhone 11 Comparison

The Galaxy S10 and the iPhone 11 were two of the top competing smartphone models in 2019. The Galaxy S10 was released in March 2019, while the iPhone 12 was released in September 2019, making it more recent, but let's see how these Apple and Samsung flagship models compare head to head.


When it comes to camera quality, both phones have strong specs, but the Galaxy S10 comes out slightly ahead thanks to an extra rear camera lens. The Galaxy S10 has 3 rear camera lenses: a 12MP main, 12MP telephoto and 16MP ultra-wide lens. The iPhone 11 only has 2 lenses: a 12MP main and 12MP ultra-wide. Overall, you'll find better zoom capabilities and slightly better camera performance on the S10.


In terms of battery life, the Galaxy S10 has a 3400 mAh battery that can reportedly last up to 10 hours when web browsing or streaming video. The iPhone 11 has a 3110 mAh battery, but despite the smaller battery capacity, we found that the iPhone 11 held a charge longer than the Galaxy S10 thanks to a more efficient chipset.

Storage & Color Options

Both phones come in multiple colors including black, white, blue and red but only the Samsung S10 offers additional color options such as pink and green. If storage is a top priority for you, you might want to consider the iPhone 11 instead since it offers more storage options at 64, 128, and 256 GB compared to just 128 GB on the Galaxy S10.


In terms of RAM capacity, Samsung's S10 comes with 8 GB, which is double the 4 GB on Apple's iPhone 11, resulting in smoother multitasking. But the A13 Bionic processor chip on Apple's smartphone gives it a slight edge in performance over Samsung's Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.

Overall, you might prefer the Galaxy S20 as a better option for a better display with a higher pixel density, double the RAM, 2x digital zoom capabilities and improved video recording. However, if you prefer to prioritize battery life, general performance and more standard storage options, then you'll want to pick the iPhone 11.
