S10 versus iPhone XS: Who wins?



Weeks and weeks of speculation have finally reached an end as Samsung officially introduced to the tech world its latest phone model — Samsung S10 series. The question is, how is it any better than any smartphone that has ever existed? Or should I say, does it transcend iPhone XS’ specs and performance?

Samsung S10 has taken the photo-taking experience to another level

Some argue “yes” and some say “no.” But let us discuss it one by one.

Let’s start with what makes buyers go crazy the most — the camera.

Seeing double is better for many and that was what iPhone did: Give birth to an iPhone XS that has a pair of 12-megapixel sensors and that really drove the people crazy. Both have Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The main snapper features an f/1.8 aperture and 26mm focal length while the second lens accents f/2.4 aperture and a 52mm focal length.

Crazy, isn’t it? But not crazy enough says the Samsung S10.

Samsung S10 has taken the photo-taking experience to another level as it ignites its camera features with triple-lens camera in the rear area that has 16-megapixel (ultrawide angle), 12-megapixel (ultrawide angle) and 12-megapixel (telephoto). The S10 series also has greater software enhancement such as the Bright Night feature.

Famed phone camera review provider DxOMark said that “in our opinion, these are currently the best camera phones of 2019.”

Now this is crazy.

I bet after the camera feature, some would always see to it that the screen also performs great, right?

Samsung S10 stepped up its game with a 6.1-inch dynamic active-matrix organic light-emitting diode or, in layman’s term, AMOLED. This new feature allows pixels to activate more quickly because of the layer of semiconducting film that Samsung added.

AMOLED also increases the speed of larger and higher definitions. It also is 1,000 times faster than LCD which most tech companies use.

On the other side, Apple’s iPhone XS has 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED. The Super Retina display has a wide contrast at a 1 million to one contrast ratio, high brightness and a cinema standard wide color.

But what really is something that S10 possess which couldn’t be found in XS? Its hole-punch camera.

This feature has really taken everyone in awe as it’s the first of its kind. This time around, the Samsung cut a portion of the screen for selfie purposes. This hole-punch camera has 10-megapixels in it.

Another key feature of the S10 is its on-screen fingerprint sensors. I know, fingerprint sensors are probably overrated by now, but displaying it on-screen? That is something.

The on-screen fingerprint sensors do not take up too much space on the phone since it’s already implanted behind the screen itself.

The new Samsung S10 has set the standards a notch higher anew. And the game amongst the phone companies has just began.
