A Tech Geek’s Comparison of Samsung vs iPhone Camera


When it comes to capturing all of your memories, you need a good smartphone camera that can do it all. The question is: What is the best smartphone camera that you can buy? One of the biggest selling points when deciding between phone brands is the camera. So, we put together a comprehensive comparison of the two biggest smartphone competitors: the new iPhone 11 and the Samsung Galaxy S10.

A Look at the Samsung Galaxy S10 Versus iPhone 11 Camera Quality

The iPhone 11 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 both have three rear-facing camera lenses. One of those lenses allows the phones to capture ultra-wide photos with a much larger field than was ever possible. But, Samsung offers a 123 degree field of view, while Apple offers a slightly narrower view at 120 degrees. The Galaxy S10’s ultra wide-angle camera lens has a 16 megapixel sensor, while the iPhone 11 Pro is sitting at 12 megapixels. And Samsung’s wide angle camera also has a lower aperture than Apple’s which means the lens can open wider to absorb more light, giving the photo more exposure. 

In terms of recording video, the iPhone 11 Pro and the Galaxy S10 share a lot of similarities. When it comes to video quality, they’re neck and neck. Both can shoot 4K video up to 60 frames per second and slow motion video in 1080p at up to 240 frames per second. 

But besides the actual camera, you need a high resolution display to view your high quality photos and videos. The Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch screen which is slightly larger than the iPhone 11 Pro’s 5.8-inch display. The Galaxy S10’s display has a resolution of 3040×1440, packing 550 pixels per inch, while the iPhone 11 Pro has a resolution of 2436×1125 with 458 pixels per inch. 

But these numbers don’t mean everything. Having a higher resolution doesn’t always mean one screen is better than the other. Although the displays on Samsung phones are usually vibrant and full of bold color, the coloring on the iPhone is much more realistic. 

Samsung released these features on their Galaxy S10 phone back in February. With the new iPhone 11 Pro release, Apple might be giving Samsung a run for their money. Overall, the features are both so similar it would be hard to decide which is better without comparing the performance side-by-side.
