As we all know, the rivalries for iOS and Android, Samsung and Apple, iPhone and S series have been eternal. In this competition, Huawei and Xiaomi can be called yesterday’s child. The new competition of old rivals: iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21.
If you are looking for a phone that fits right in your hand, you should choose the basic phones of these two series. We will compare the two anyway. They are also two of the most affordable phones of their series. The iPhone 12 is 6.1 inches, has a fairly small screen and 164 grams. The Samsung Galaxy S21 measures 6.2 inches and weighs 169 grams. In the screen part, the iPhone 12 lags behind Samsung. It has a Full HD + Super Retina OLED display and of course this is very good but the S21 Dynamic AMOLED stands out with its 2x display and 120Hz refresh rate. The refresh rate on the iPhone is 60Hz.
In the software part, although Samsung looks good on paper, iPhone 12 is ahead in the tests. Yes, it would be a huge injustice to call the S21 bad with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100, but the Apple A14 Bionic chipset is officially doing wonders. As for the camera, we see that the S21 is ahead. Zoom feature is also better than iPhone 12. Still, there are no differences that we can call extreme. Selfie cameras can also shoot 4K video.
On the battery side, Samsung is better on paper. The iPhone 12 has a 2815 mAh battery versus a 4000 mAh battery, but since there is no problem with optimization, similar screen times are obtained. Nevertheless, we can say that Samsung is better in this regard as Apple’s phones have a general battery problem.
If you are looking for a phone that is strong in chipset and stable in update support, we recommend you to buy the iPhone 12, if you care more about the camera and battery, the Samsung Galaxy S21.
