Three Factors You Care Most


To be honest, both Apple and Samsung are excellent smartphone manufacturer. Both iPhone 11 and Note 10 are very brilliant in terms of performance. But there are some subtle differences that you can see from the above table. Apple's three new iPhones have less memory overall than Samsung's. As a result, many users think that the performance of the iPhone 11 is not as good as Note 10's.

In theory, Samsung indeed should be able to blow Apple out of the water with the performance of the Note 10 and Note 10+ because it is with each Note using an 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor equipped with either 8GB or 12GB RAM, depending on the model. While the iPhone 11 Pro Max has just 4 GB of memory to work with. However, iPhone 11's six-core A13 Bionic can also properly compete Note 10 with the help of the Neural Engine.

Camera & Videos

Well, the camera is one of the most important factors when considering buying a new smartphone. Personally, it is. This time, both Apple and Samsung went down the same route of offering three cameras, with Ultra-Wide, Wide, and Telephoto lenses. Both sides also have Optical Image Stabilization on the Wide and Telephoto cameras, as well as typical camera-shooting modes, HDR, and 10x digital zoom. But, Apple opts for 12-megapixel sensors across the board, while Samsung uses 12-megapixel for the Wide and Telephoto but switches it out for a 16-megapixel sensor in the Ultra-Wide.

What worth mentioning is that Apple improved the TrueDepth of the front camera from 7 MP to 12 MP, whereas Samsung set up as 10 MP. Simply to say, if you like to take a selfie, iPhone may do better. As for the ultra-wide feature, these two phones are not very different from the field of view. Samsung's Note 10 is only slightly more than iPhone 11, only 3° that you can ignore.

As for the video, both are capable of 4K recordings at 60fps as well as the usual slow motion 1080p at 240fps, but Samsung adds in Super Slow-mo, capturing 720p video at 960fps. In other respects, they’re almost equal, like HDR, audio zoom, and the ability to capture still images while recording a video.


Price is the factor you need to consider when you buy anything. Samsung's Note 10 series are generally more expensive than the iPhone 11 series. While the price of iPhone 11 Pro Max and Galaxy Note 10 Plus is the same, both started from $1099, but Note 10+ 5G starts at $1299. Note 10 is also more expensive than the iPhone 11, but $50 less than the iPhone 11 Pro. Not that the most expensive is the best or the fittest, you need to think about the functions you most need and your budget. Personally, what I want most is a good camera and my budget is limited, so I'll probably buy an iPhone 11.

The Bottom Line

That’s all the comparison between iPhone 11 series and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series. As you see, both of them are going to have almost similar features. If you would like to have a great RAM or longer battery life on your smartphone, then Note 10 is an obviously better option. However, if you want better camera features, maybe iPhone 11 is the better choice.
