Comparison Between iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Performance

Presented above takes a big role in choosing which one will you choose to buy. There is a big difference if you try to look at the appearance of this smartphones. If you will ask me which one is close to my heart? I will definitely say I will go to Android. I don’t like much with IOS, the fact that, for me, it is not friendly user, its maybe because I was not used to IOS, I have IOS phone yet until now, we are not yet friend with my iOs.

When it comes to its performances, this is a big battle between this two major smartphone company of which one will be the best smartphone in the market today. That depends actually on how you love things, because if you ask me the answer will be definitely unsure. I only have one issue with iOs, the moment that I don’t have data on my smartphone, I will be totally separated from the internet world I can no longer access the messenger and Facebook. But with Samsung Galaxy or other Android phones, I can still connect to the world even without Data.

Like true flagships, they come with all the best specifications Samsung and Apple have to offer. The Galaxy Note 10+ comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 while the iPhone 11 Pro Max is powered by Apple’s latest A13 Bionic chip. Here the iPhone gets a point without a question – the A13 is a monster when it comes to performance. And nothing will disagree with it. A13 is the most advance Chipset in the world of smartphone as of today’s generation of smartphone. When it comes to its performance, A13 is the best.

The A13 bionic is 112,242 advance compared to Exynos 9825. Of course, when it comes to storage capacity, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus, has 256GB standard storage compared to iPhone 11 Max Pro that starts from 64GB. The Larger the storage of Apple, the more it is expensive. And for those who has limited source of fund, you have to choose which is best fits to your budget. Another features in Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus is that, Note 10+ has MicroSD slot that iPhone 11 Max Pro don’t have.

Program and Productivity

If you don’t know yet, as of the moment, Note 10+ is currently running with Samsung’s one UI that is based on Android 9 which is a great lift when it comes with design. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus has many advantages when it comes to features compared with the iPhone 11 Max Pro, it has layers of One UI means you can work with your S pen that Apple don’t have. Samsung keeps on surprising its users with extra features for us users to become more convenient.

With UI, this will also let the user open more application and one thing more interesting is that, you can pop it up in you window and you can also resize it. Its hustle free, because you are just like working it with your very own desktop. So, if you are doing activities and work assignment, and even doing Facebook, Face up messenger and other activities in your screen with UI program this makes work easier.

iPhone 11 pro Max we can never tell, but I have big differenced. It is run with the latest iOs 13 the latest version of the Apple program which is as silky as ever. This is the most requested features like swipe typing and this will work also even in the dark mode. iPhones the newest version is the most essential and most improve in speed, design compared also with UI which this makes Apple the first party application.

The problem I saw with iPhone is that, they don’t improve and support the screen split multitasking activity. Despite the fact that iPhone has various ability especially in computing power inside the Smartphone. The bad news is, we as users, still bound to the limitation of the apps.

Even though you have the older version of your smartphone, you can still upgrade your unit to the newest version to the newest iOs program. Despite Samsung’s efforts, most developers haven’t included unique functionalities for the S Pen so the two phones are more or less on equal terms.

Gaming Experience

If you love gaming, this both smartphone has no issue when it comes to its speed. Both hardware of this smartphone is designed for games. While you are still contemplating on how this works to add more the iPhone’s A13 chip offers more performance than the Snapdragon 855, once you hit 60 fps with the highest settings it’s pretty much leveled field and the Note 10+ has no problem providing that as well. This platform of this smartphone has different titles, depending on what kind of smartphones you are using. Today Apple has already launched the what we called Apple Arcade that gives you portal with your exclusive games you love, but you have a monthly payment of more or less $5. With this, you have all the access to all the games you love.

Camera Comparison

Both cameras of this smartphones has similar range of sensors of both their disposal it has 12MP main Camera, 12MP telephoto and has ultra-wide cameras with 12MP on the iPhone and 16MP on the Note.

With Samsung Smartphone, this comes with dedicated time of flight sensor for improved depth of field perception when you take shots. The front camera of iPhone has 12MP Selfie shooter on the other hand, Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus has 10MP. To sum it up, when it comes to hardware both has similarities. I can tell in today’s time, for the users, software is of great consideration and of course the camera is the most important thing in Smartphone.

I always consider smartphones camera especially the once in a lifetime opportunities to take photograph. Although today, it is the top consideration for smartphone manufacturer the camera of their smartphones yet, we have to weight the smartphones that produces natural pictures of the object you are taking photos.

The above photos show the result of what I am talking about. This is the photo taken above Hollywood. upper part was iPhone’s shot and the lower part is for Note 10+. In a very challenging situation, this both smartphone takes photos that we prefer and this according to our taste. Considering iPhone 11 Pro Max show the very clear detail of the object that was taken.

Battery Life

iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has great battery and capacity and life. Compared to the older versions, battery life has big gap. The fact that we always consider the life of the battery for our smartphones this both smartphones is the answer to our smartphone needs.


Its hard to tell which of this both smartphone is perfectly best for you. This is maybe because Note 10 Plus has S Pen. And that what makes advantage to iPhone 11 Pro Max you can not replace S Pen anything else. When it comes to its purpose, I won’t exchange it to others. One thing also with iPhone 11 Pro Max is its unique features.

I hope I satisfied you with information especially in your plan to buy either iPhone 11 Pro Max or Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus. As I keep on saying, I cannot influence your buying need. Base on what I have presented maybe, this could be enough for you to choose which one you will go to buy.

Thank you
