The display size and resolution are also different; at 6.8 inches and 1440 x 3200 px respectively, you'll get more screen real estate with your Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G than with its 6.7 inch and 1284 x 2778 px counterpart on the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Both devices come in multiple colors and multiple storage options each, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max has an additional 1 TB option for those that need it.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G vs iPhone 13 Pro Max: who wins?

In terms of chipset and processor speed, RAM capacity, operating system design - both devices have similar specs - but overall when it comes to technical specifications we'd say that overall that Samsung's offering is better than Apple's due to its higher camera quality and longer battery life as well as larger display size & resolution.. At Back Market we believe that buying refurbished products is an important step towards environmental sustainability - so why not save between 30% to 70% off retail prices all year long when you buy refurbished instead of new?
