Samsung Galaxy S20 vs. iPhone 11 Pro: The main differences
As can be seen from the table above, the Samsung Galaxy S20 beats the iPhone 11 Pro with better values in most disciplines. The Korean smartphone has an impressive 12 GB of RAM, while the opponent from California only has 4 GB. The battery of the S20 is significantly larger, the display has a finer resolution. But: Anyone familiar with smartphone technology knows that data sheets cannot be interpreted word for word and number for number. In the end, practice counts, for example whether the smartphone has enough energy for a whole day or whether all apps run smoothly.

However, three points have to be emphasized, because here the Samsung Galaxy S20 has hardware advantages that Apple cannot “upgrade” the iPhone 11 Pro with an update. Firstly, the option for the new 5G mobile radio standard (for a surcharge of 100 euros), secondly, the expandability via memory card (up to 1 TB). The third trump card is the 120 Hertz display for a smooth display (especially scrolling in apps).
Apple's iPhone 11 Pro stays ahead thanks to Face ID when it comes to safe unlocking via face scan. The competing manufacturers agree on the good old jack socket declared dead: it is missing in the Galaxy S20 and iPhone 11 Pro. Headphones can only be connected via an adapter or wirelessly via Bluetooth.

Samsung Galaxy S20 vs. iPhone 11 Pro: Which phone is better?
If you look at the technical data and the price called by the manufacturer, the winner in the direct comparison is the Samsung Galaxy S20. Although it is anything but cheap at 899 euros (RRP), you get "more mobile for the money" here. The best arguments are the camera with 30x zoom, the smoother 120 Hertz display (iPhone 11 Pro: 60 Hertz), the slimmer design and, for some users, the expandable memory.
The iPhone 11 Pro draws the short in almost all places, but is not necessarily the worse cell phone. The interplay of different devices in the "Apple ecosystem" remains unmatched, the quality of photos and video recordings is still at the forefront and Face-ID is an integral part of everyday life for many iPhone users. As always, the perennial basic question "Android or iOS" must be clarified before buying - an answer to this can only be tailored to the individual user.
