    Hands down samsung will always take the best photo quality... samsung did it first when it comes to 4k and wide lens compared to iphone and wireless charging

    I’ve owned the s10 plus and tried out the note 10 plus and regular note 10 both for 1 week. And I’ve had the s9 plus before and the note 8 and right now. I’m rocking the iPhone XS Max and couldn’t be happier. I had the chance of getting the iPhone 11 pro max also since that is released now but I went with the iPhone XS Max because it was 100 bucks cheaper and I don’t like the camera look on the back of the new iPhone 11 pro max it’s just ugly in my opinion and the difference between the two really isn’t much. Plus I like the apple ecosystem and how everything integrates toghether. I will not be switching back to android anytime soon. Plus I prefer apple CarPlay in my 2019 Chevy Malibu. It honestly is better in my opinion then android auto.

    Great review, going side by side with specs is much appreciated. I have the S10+ and the XS MAX. To say which one I enjoy better is a tough one. I enjoy the iMessage and the ecosystem apple has built, and for Samsung I enjoy the feature packed experience they give you to really make the phone Yours. One thing I would say though that I end up using the S10+ more because in low signal areas the iPhone struggles to load web pages and send messages whereas the Samsung does wonders in low signal instances and I get to use default apps of my choice. Aside from that both phones are great, just for work around many areas the Samsung makes life easier.

    Tbh- all these comments about “buy whatever makes you happy” is just straight up annoying.
    I love seeing people’s opinions, it’s entertaining- not peacemakers 🤦🏽‍♀️ no offense, but take the offense.
    Apple vs Samsung fans? Hell yeah

  • 6lowlife

    Had android for years after leaving the 6plus and just switched last year from the 9+ to the xs max and I have to say my biggest thing is my iphones screen looks larger by a somewhat decent amount due to the Samsung’s having a curved screen although it isn’t smaller that’s a big factor. As for brightness when my phones in direct sunlight I have zero problem seeing it so that doesn’t matter to me but battery wise Samsung takes the cake in every aspect speed charging and length witch is a big thing.. but the iphones camera smokes androids so with that said there is just OS left and there’s just to much customization on the Samsung’s I don’t care to deal with I mean I almost never messed with customizing the home screen and stuff. They’re both great company’s I don’t play that fanboy shtuff

    I actually have had both well still do I’d say I prefer the iPhone galaxys are nice have way more features I love the in screen finger print and face scanner and the front camera but I love to use a phone for what phones are meant for now a days social media and iPhones work just fine for that and seem to flow with the apps better more features better specs better selfie camera galaxy s10 plus had the pearl color one but want a phone that is better with gaming and social media get the xs max I just wish the iPhone still had finger print scanners

    I am not a phone expert but I am not happy with my S10. The sales clerk just tells me they all have problems but I can't help but wonder if the iPhone wouldn't be better. All my friends swear by iPhone but I went against my better judgement. The Samsung just gives me a lot of issues.

      kissatkoiria hmm u must use a lot of those features or something I found more to be gimmicky in my expiernce never used the charge other phones feature but twice I did enjoy having a finer print scanner again and long battery life and facial recognition and the openness of android but idk I feel more secure with iPhones less hiccups I will say galaxys have great multitasking features I loved watching Netflix and playing games at the same time

  • Antigua Paradise Island

    If you put the S10 plus at its highest resolution, the phone batter wouldn’t last as long, and it would trip up sometimes I know I have both the iPhone XS Max is at its best right out the box

    Right, S10+ won’t slow down...after one week. Give it about 3 months, then it begins to degrade.

    Should i sell my xs max and buy s10 plus or note 10 plus?

    • Jack Hansen
      Jack Hansen 3 months ago +1

      I currently have the XS Max and S10+, using the S10+ as my daily. I'd say the differences are minimal - I lean towards the S10+ for the headphone jack (I have a pair of sennheiser wired headphones I prefer to use without adapters), camera image quality might be a tiny bit better on the iPhone, but only by a hair's breadth, plus the added wide angle lens on the S10 kind of swings it in the S10s favour for me. Speed is pretty much a non-issue with both, with battery life maybe being a tad better on the iPhone in most cases.
      Overall I'd probably not advise selling the XS Max for the S10+, unless you want the headphone jack, a slightly more versatile camera and a tiny bit better screen.
      As for the Note 10+, I haven't played with it but I would guess it's a largely similar phone (no 3.5 jack), except from the thinner bezels obviously. Might be worth a shot but again unless you're not liking the iPhone I'd probably say it's not hugely worth it

    The only reason I upgraded to XS is the operating system. Android is really not that good compared to IOS.

    I have Samsung Galaxy S7 3 years now and it's awsome.. i could use it for at least 1 more year... i've had iPhone before and i like iOS and Android (both have pros and cons) ... iPhone XS Max looks very good but what kills it for me is no micro sd option and no headphone jack

    zollo you forgot the long term OS support.. that is the point where all android devices SUCK! 2 major updates (not the pixels) and thats it. compared to iOS where the 5s has iOS 12.x and this phone is almost 6 years old, it is very sad and embarrasing, that so called flagship non-pixel android devices are getting max 1 or 2 major updates.

    i bet all the people saying choose what makes you happy are iphone users lol. It's not that I disagree, it's just a way of masking the denial of being able to get a better device for less money. The software and people saying it's an "OS" preference are also full of shit. Can you tell me the differences and what about the OS? I'd love to know. Because I use both, and the iphone consistently performs worse or has issues or takes longer to complete the same task as the Samsung. Not due to speed of the phones, due to Apple's OS simply not being as reliable or restricting you from being able to do very simple things to "benefit you." Just like it "benefits you" to get a new laptop instead of get yours fixed for free by then fixing the display cable (for those of you who don't know this was a massive issue with the macbook). SURE a new laptop would definitely be better, but what if you just don't need it and you laptop is only a year or two old ? Na a new one would be so much better BUY IT AND GIVE US YOUR MONEY.
