Samsung followed in Apple's footsteps with its own 2019 Galaxy smartphone lineup, launching the Galaxy S10e alongside the S10 and S10 + with a smaller screen size and a lower price tag of $ 749 with Apple's iPhone XR should compete. , In our latest YouTube video, we compare Samsung's affordable smartphone option with Apple's.
The Samsung Galaxy S1
Apple's display does not look bad, but it does not quite match the quality of OLED. When it comes to cutouts, the iPhone XR uses the same notch as the iPhone XS and XS Max because it has the same Face ID face recognition system, while the Galaxy S10e uses a unique cutout for the camera's front camera that maximizes the available screen space.
Samsung can not match Apple's face recognition capabilities, so the Galaxy S10e has a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button on the right side of the device. This is a departure from other S10 devices that have an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the display.
Apple's iPhone generally outperforms Samsung in terms of processor performance, and the XR and S10e are no different. The XR is equipped with an Apple A12 bionic chip (the same chip as the XS and XS Max), while all Samsung smartphones (including S10e) use the Snapdragon 855. The Snapdragon 855 does not work as well as the A12 in benchmarks. However, these are modern smartphones that excel in everyday tasks.
The S10e is equipped with 6GB of RAM, twice as much RAM in the iPhone XR However, Apple has traditionally used less RAM memory due to the deep integration between hardware and hardware.
The S10e from Samsung convinces in the XR range when it comes to memory, since the base model starts at 128 GB of storage space (vs. 64 GB) and comes with a microSD card slot to expand the available storage space.
Since the S10e has a smaller display, it is lighter and more compact, which is more suitable for one-handed use and is closer to the iPhone XS . Both devices have several color options, with the XR available in six shades and the S10e in four pearlescent shades.
Apple has rolled back the iPhone XR rear camera to cut costs, and Samsung did the same. The iPhone XR uses a single-lens camera, while the other iPhones have dual lenses, and the S10e uses a dual-lens camera instead of a three-lens camera. The S10e has both wide-angle and ultra-wide lenses, while the XR has only one wide-angle lens.
The XR uses software for portrait mode photos with blurry backgrounds, so the feature does not work with pets, food, and other items other than humans. The S10e does not have this limitation, which gives the S10e in conjunction with the ultra-wide lens an advantage in photography. Apple's pictures are more colorful and offer better exposure.
There are pros and cons to Samsung and Apple's budget smartphones. Apple brings Face ID, the faster A-Series chip technology, and closer software / hardware integration (which is likely to mean longer life and more frequent software updates). Samsung S10e has a rear camera with two lenses, an OLED display, and expandable memory.
