GALAXY S21 VS IPHONE 12: WHICH ONE IS BETTER?
Apple or Samsung? This, we could say that it is the eternal battle of technology that divides a large part of the world population and that there are people who are faithful defenders of Apple and others who avoid the products of this brand with all their might.
IPhone 12 or Galaxy S21? What is the best mobile of the two? In today’s article, we put the two most popular mobiles on the market to the test and for this, we are going to discuss the main characteristics of both devices so that when you go to choose, you can do so with all the necessary information.
If you already know that you want to buy an Apple mobile because you are one of those loyal to the brand, we recommend that you read our review on the iPhone 12 as we discuss everything you need to know about this mobile in a more extensive way.
Although the design, the camera, and other elements are very important, the technical characteristics really are the aspects that differentiate one phone from another. Therefore, we are going to begin to discuss the main differences in the technical aspects of the Galaxy S21 and the iPhone 12.
Despite the fact that the Galaxy’s battery is 4,000 mAH and therefore, greater than that of the iPhone that reaches 2,815 mAh. We cannot say that Samsung’s mobile is better than Apple’s since it once again shows that the autonomy of the iPhone 12 is perfect and more than necessary.
As for the processor, we can say that both brands bet on one manufactured by themselves. In this way, Samsung bets on the Exynos 2100, and Apple, for its part, bets with the A14 chip, which has shown in its other mobiles such as the iPhone 12 mini, which is one of the most powerful processors to date.
Connectivity will not be a problem for the Galaxy S21 and the iPhone 12 and both models have included 56 in their processors prepared for any type of network. In addition, we cannot fail to comment that both mobiles also have NFC technology that allows payments to be made through mobiles.
To finish with the technical characteristics, we have to talk about the software and that is that although both mobiles may have certain similarities, if something differentiates them, it is the operating system they use. We could say that the choice of one mobile or another forces us to enter the great world of Apple or Samsung, and once you enter one of them, it is already difficult to get out of there.
Design and screen
Another of the most important aspects for many people in the design and resolution of the screen. We could say that in this aspect is where both mobiles coincide more, since both the Galaxy S1 and the iPhone 12 have a screen of very similar size. In addition, both phones also have a screen based on AMOLED technology with a Full HD + resolution.
If we compare them with other products of the same family, we can consider that both are the most compact phones and that they are available in a greater variety of colors, as we will mention later.
We could say that the biggest difference in the design of both phones is that the Samsung Galaxy S21 chooses to add a plastic casing instead, Apple includes a glass back in its phones that, although it may be less resistant, is considered more premium.
Another important difference we could say is the finish of the mobile since the Galaxy S21 has a matte finish and on the contrary, the iPhone 12 has a glossy finish. The position of the camera is also different since in the S21 they are placed vertically on a metal bezel and in the iPhone, they are placed on a square module.
Camera performance and photography
To finish this article we have saved the best for last, and we cannot ignore that many people, especially young people of Generation Z, use their mobile phones to take better photos at an artistic, professional level or simply to remember all his adventures. In this way, we can affirm without any doubt that the camera and the photos that mobile phones take are two very important factors to take into account when someone decides to buy a mobile phone.
Despite the fact that Samsung has greatly improved the quality of its photos and its camera, we can say that although it tries, in terms of photography Apple is always above and takes a lot of advantage over the Korean brand.
Knowing this, Samsung has chosen not to vary the formula but to improve the technology already existing in others of its old phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S20. In this way, the Galaxy S21 once again incorporates a triple sensor on the back of the mobile. This consists of a main camera that has 12 megapixels, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 64 megapixel sensor.
As for the camera of the new iPhone 12, we also find a system very similar to the one we could already see in the previous iPhone 11 model. In this way, you can photograph everything you want with a 12 megapixel main camera and an ultra-wide-angle camera that will allow you to experience everything you want, as we mentioned in our article on the best tricks and tips for photography with the iPhone.
Although the Galaxy S21 has a triple camera and competes against the dual camera of the iPhone 12, we can say that both cameras are good and will offer great results. In addition to this difference, we can see that the front camera of the iPhone 12 is better than that of the Galaxy S21, since the Apple mobile has 12 megapixels and the Samsung has 10 megapixels.
Price and models
If you have come this far you may want to buy one of the two mobiles and therefore, we will also comment on the prices of both models. The iPhone 12 costs $799 and depending on the capacity you choose, the price may vary. Specifically, you can buy a 64, 128 or 256 GB mobile.
As for the price of the Samsung Galaxy S21, it is also important to mention that it varies depending on the different models you choose. The most expensive model costs $1,304 and the cheapest, $1,079.
