Samsung Or Apple; The Age-Old Debate; Which Is The Better 1 !!!!
Making a logical choice between iPhone and Samsung smartphones requires knowing what features and specs are most important to you.
Here’s what you need to know to make a smart decision.
Whether an Apple iPhone or a Samsung smartphone suits you better is primarily a matter of taste. The devices by these brands differ considerably in terms of the operating system, the lineup, and the ecosystem.
Apple and Samsung are two giants in the global smartphone industry, and with each subsequent launch from the two brands, fans and the press alike set out on a quest to compare the new models between the rivals and previous generation handsets. What are the differences and similarities between the new smartphones from the two manufacturers? What is each of their strengths? That’s what we intend to do with this article.
Apple vs Samsung: Product Performance
There is no denying it: Apple’s A15 Bionic is way ahead of Samsung on overall chip performance and on benchmarks performed at the end of last year using the Qualcomm 865+ on the S20.
We compared the 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 (Adreno 660) with the newer 6-core Apple A15 Bionic (Apple GPU) SoC. Here you will find the pros and cons of each chip, technical specs, and comprehensive tests in benchmarks, like AnTuTu and Geekbench.
|CPU Performance||Gaming Performance|
|Single and multi-core processor tests|
Snapdragon 888 86
A15 Bionic 99
|GPU performance in games and OpenCL/Vulcan|
Snapdragon 888 92
A15 Bionic 94

Overall chip score
Snapdragon 888 90
A15 Bionic 97
Pros of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888
- Has 2 more cores
- Supports 20% higher memory bandwidth (51.2 against 42.7 GB/s)
Pros of A-15 Bionic
- Higher GPU frequency (~43%)
- Announced 10-months later
- 13% higher CPU clock speed (3223 vs 2840 MHz)
- Better instruction set architecture
Industrial Design And Product Durability
Yes, design is yet again a personal preference. Nevertheless, both Apple and Samsung have some of the best product designs in the entire industry, so they both get very high marks both are ranked the same in this area. Historically, I would say both of these companies scored relatively low in terms of product durability that’s why I have housed these things in OtterBoxes for so long.
But, in recent years, Apple and Samsung have upgraded their phones to IP67 and IP68 ratings to make them waterproof and much-improved glass tensile strength, so I would say their products are much more durable. However, I’m still using cases until someone proves to me they are indestructible.
Native Services and App Ecosystem
Apple blows Samsung out of the water in terms of the native ecosystem. For virtually everything in apps and services, Samsung has to rely on Google. So, while Google gets an 8 for its ecosystem in terms of the breadth and quality of its service offerings on Android, Apple Scores a 9 because I think its wearables services are vastly superior to what Google has now.
I believe its Music ecosystem and games and financial offerings are also better. I think you can also argue that Google’s apps and services as implemented on iOS are as good or work better than the Android version in some cases. Samsung is getting a 6, and even with that, I think we are generous.
Which one will you want to buy
But both Apple and Samsung are highly innovative companies who apply their innovation priorities a bit differently. With Samsung, we see things like folding phones, display manufacturing, and display design, whereas, with Apple, it’s in chip design, machine learning, wearable computing, and audio.
