iPhone 12 Pro Vs Samsung Galaxy S20! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 4, 2020

Welcome back everyone as you guys may know the iphone 12 pros just came out and what better time to compare it against the samsung galaxy s20 than right now now first of all the s20 is that thousand dollar phone that samsung just released brand new it was you know released early on this year but right now these things have depreciated quite a bit and the iphone 12 pros will eventually go down in value but these things are still for a thousand dollars right now in the used market you can pick up one of these for around like

600ish dollars i mean i've seen these on amazon for around that too so for whichever one i find for the cheapest value i'll go ahead and link down the description below you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side you may see that you know one phone may look inherently better than the other one and i hate to just already go there but i like apple you know i love apple i'm using this phone as my main phone right now anyway i'm not using the galaxy s20 as my main

Phone i love ios i love iphones but when you look at the competition it's just so impressive what samsung was able to do you have a bigger display you have a better display on the samsung galaxy s 20 in my opinion and this is pretty much the size difference for sure now on the front of the galaxy s20 you have a 6.2 inch dynamic amoled display it's 1440p and i'll i've said this before and i'm 100 going to say it again this is the best panel in my opinion this year

Not only do you have a very good looking you know panel very little bezel around the whole entire display you have that whole punch display too but on top of that you have that 120 hertz refresh rate on this phone that is something that is really really awesome i love that inbuilt fingerprint sensor in the display and this is something where i actually love samsung for doing they did it last year they kind of did it again but they added that 120 hertz which is something that was kind of rumored to be

There and it was there you know samsung just throws everything to having a phone in a year whether it hurts them or helps them they literally do it and i literally love that now on the iphone side of things the iphone 12 pro has that 6.1 inch super retina xdr oled display and this resolution is 1170 by 2532 so a little bit less than 1440p but apple makes really good panels too and i think samsung makes these panels too which is

Really funny but i i feel like what's what apple did this year was a little bit weird because they changed the body of it but they didn't really change the display okay going from the 11 pro to the 12 pro there is a bigger display it's technically higher resolution and i really like that step in the right direction but i just feel like when i look at the samsung galaxy s20 this is more of a complete display in my opinion this year has been all about refresh rates we've seen it on all the phones

The notes the s20s the oneplus 8s and the ets like the increase in refresh rate was awesome and apple didn't do it this year which is very weird you know i don't know why they did that they're probably going to do it next year but the competition has been doing it for years now so i find that really weird and i think definitely when it comes down to the front panels you know trying to be as unbiased as possible the samsung galaxy s20 definitely 100 wins you still have a

Notch on the iphone 12 which doesn't really make any sense and this is the 12 pro these phones cost the same amount of money which one would you think looked better you know what i mean now when it comes down to the sides here's a weird thing and this is i've been referencing the s20 a lot in my galaxy you know for my iphone 12 pro reviews the iphone is now kind of a flatter design which i personally like in a way i think it's cool i think people kind of

Are hyping it up a little bit but people can say whatever they want doesn't really matter i think the buttons feel good i feel like everything feels great but when you look at the galaxy s20 first of all i don't really think the galaxy s20 looks like the best thing in the world but when you feel it in the hand it definitely feels like a super thin device when i hold the 12 pro it feels thicker than the iphone than that galaxy s20 and i don't know if

The s20 is actually thicker or thinner but it actually feels super thin when you hold it because of the curved design so i think there's a lot of use with this curved design it makes you feel thinner i've said this even with other iphones like with an iphone 10r for example it kind of feels thinner a little bit than even like in 12 pro or iphone 12 which is weird so take it as you want i feel like the galaxy s20 feels thinner the iphone 12 pro feels thicker i don't know if they actually are thinner or thicker keep

That in mind and on the back i think this is where samsung actually really falls behind in it compared to apple they have obviously a frosted glass back on this iphone and the back of the iphone 12 pro looks so nice it looks really really good the samsung galaxy s20 literally looks like some old phone i don't know why they made it this way the front looks good but the back looks very ugly i don't know why they did this the note 20 ultra looks way better but the s20 looks weird

You have triple camera setups on both a lidar sensor on the iphone 12 pro and you're getting better water resistance and dust resistance from the iphone 12 pro which is really cool you're getting ip68 on both but you can go six meters of water for 30 minutes we can only go 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes on s20 so these are some pretty big differences in terms of the outside you're getting expandable storage on the galaxy s22 which is really cool the iphone's never had that but that's a really good plus that samsung has still

Kept in for the s20 and what i can tell you is in terms of the outside for sure i think the s20 looks better on the front the galaxy s20 looks worse on the back the iphone 12 pro looks really really nice on the back it feels really good and i feel like in terms of the premiumness i might have to give it to the iphone 12 pro i feel like this phone feels more premium i just really really love the screen on the s20 i feel like this phone feels way more premium i like the inbound fingerprint sensitive

Display and i like the micro sd card slot so in terms of that that pretty much covers up the bodies now in terms of software this is where things kind of get a little confusing so android on s20 ios on iphone we all know that if you have a preference pick whichever phone you want from there the s20 is probably the best android the iphone 12 pro on ios the iphone 7 pro is one of the best iphones but compared to these two i mean ios tends to last longer but you do have

More flexibility on an android device right now that may change future i don't know but if you want the most flexibility the android ways to get away to go but you're going to be getting longer software support like the iphone 12 pro is going to be lasting probably for like twice the amount of time that the s20 is going to be lasting on full os updates of course security updates and all that stuff may change it up but you're getting three updates that's guaranteed three years of updates on the galaxy s20 you're getting like probably like five

To six updates on the iphone 12 pro so that's a pretty big thing to keep in mind too but i'll let you guys kind of be the judge there but i'll go ahead and do a speed comparison between these two phones right now i feel like that's something i'm really anxious to see the iphone 12 pro has that apple a14 bionic chip with six gigabytes of ram inside of it where the galaxy s20 has a snapdragon 865 chipset with eight gigabytes of ram there's only one model this phone so

Let's go and see which one is the faster one between both of these okay let me go and clear all these apps in the background as you can see samsung does a really good job of just letting clothes out of all of them let me go and load up their app stores three two one and it looks like the galaxy s20 was way faster there and smoothness factory i mean you'll probably be able to see that the iphone 12 pro is definitely a smoother experience i would say it's a bit choppy on the galaxy s20

Still even though we have that 120 years refresh rate on it but in person the galaxy s20 screen looks really good and in terms of the overall animations and everything you guys can see i think about the same for sure now as always i have a bunch of these third-party apps that i can automatically get into we can do netflix three two one and the galaxy s20 definitely was faster there the iphone 12 pro was a little bit behind it quizlet three two one and the galaxy s20

Was just like right there into it it was pretty fast the iphone 12 pro was a little bit behind it not a ginormous deal bofa three two one and the galaxy s20 was able to get into the specific panel faster iphone 12 pro a little bit behind it we can do snake versus blocks three two one and again the iphone 12 pro was the slower one there the galaxy s20 was faster i was honestly kind of expecting the iphone 12 pro to be faster i don't know

What's going on with the display right now or with the game that was really weird let me do temple run three two one now it's probably not gonna load here i'm gonna have issues on both of them nope okay let's go and let it run and we'll probably end up seeing maybe this will be the time the iphone 12 pro is faster who knows and the iphone 12 pro was slightly faster there not again a huge difference but it was noticeable the 12 pro won one finally new fruit ninja three two one i feel

Like i'm gonna get a pop up here or i gotta pop up here that's very weird because i have just literally opened it and i want to show you guys one more time how big of a deal the galaxy s20 may be faster but one of the things i never understood about android was the animation speed i'm going to go and open it up one more time and look at the animation on the galaxy s20 versus the 12 pro three two one look how glitchy that is on the galaxy s20 even though the developer was

Actually faster than this time i don't understand how samsung and how android just makes it so choppy all the time i do not understand it i'll never understand it we do temple one two three two one i just realized this review is going to be like super long and it's looking like the galaxy s20 will actually be the faster one here the 12 pro a little bit behind again no problem with that the 12 pro was finishing the galaxy s20 finished it up the iphone 12 pro a little bit behind

Real racing three three two one i may have to download it here i'm not really too sure but hopefully i don't have to i guess we had to download it on both that was very weird but the animations were still faster on the 12 pro for a 100 fact that is a guaranteed the iphone 12 pro will have faster animations and the galaxy s20 has been loaded for a minute now the iphone 12 pro i guess we'll give it a couple more seconds but sometimes this game just totally messes up and i've never even i need to use a different

Game now we do stack three two one and the pop-up came up here first i don't know which one i'll give it to maybe the 12 pro we had too many pop-ups here we can end it off with crossy road three two one so they were almost hand in hand i think to kind of sum up this comparison i mean this was kind of a weird one i could probably end up doing a full one we just had so many random pop-ups and weird things happen that i don't even know how to sum it up

But i think to safe to say i don't think one is way faster than the other one every single time i'm actually very happy with the you know galaxy s20 even though this is about you know several months old now at this point it still held its own and it was still noticeably faster than the iphone 12 pro i think every time a new iphone comes out and i watch those keynotes i'm like wow this is going to be so much faster than every other android device that's not necessarily the case the

Galaxy s20 beat in a lot of different areas and graphics seem to be about the same too but i think when it and look at that why did the iphone 12 pro have to close out of that app that's very weird i don't get it but it was kind of glitching up earlier so maybe i had to restart there but i'll definitely tell you the iphone 12 pro was faster sometimes the galaxy s20 was faster sometimes ram management seems to be about the same besides that 12 pro app opening so i'll probably end up doing a full speed

Comparison at some point but that's kind of how it kind of sum up the speed comparison here i will go ahead on the cameras right now now like i said before triple camera setups on both the iphone 12 pro has 12 megapixel sensors 12 megapixel wide 12 megapixel ultrawide 12 megapixel telephoto and the lidar sensor right here the galaxy s20 has a 12 megapixel wide angle lens a 64 megapixel telephoto lens and a 12 megapixel ultrawide sensor now looking at the user interfaces of

Both you can obviously see that samsung will always have more features in their cameras currently than the iphones now not only is the camera better in my opinion on the galaxy s20 but you have the ability of shooting 8k video on the samsung galaxy s20 you can only do 4k 60 on the iphone 12 pro which is actually pretty decent but it would have been really cool had apple put that in it's a feature that i don't know if many people are going to use but that is the future and it would have been really cool to have that capability on this device

I feel like next year apple's going to add it because but by then samsung had already been having it on probably two generations so very weird i don't know why they do it like that front cameras 10 megapixel sensor on the galaxy s20 12 megapixel sensor on the iphone 12 pro 4k at 60 on both of them now with the galaxy s20 it's honestly going to sound like i am like biased like crazy or anything i'm telling you right now i use the 12 pro as a main device but i just love samsung cameras they put so many

Features in this camera there's just so much to do and with every every single update there's always a ton of camera features added and i just really hope apple were to put it on their iphones you know it doesn't make any sense for them not to do it and they've been doing it for such a long time it's like the same features over and over and over again i think the last crazy features they added was like portrait mode and that was like when the iphone 7 plus came out and ever

Since then i can't think of maybe like night mode or whatever but i'm really hoping there's more capabilities with the iphone 12 pros camera the galaxy s20 i think has a better camera for sure now i still think the iphone 12 pro's camera is very good for the most part anything you're going to do with it is going to be fine the quality is really good too and of course i'm going to do a full camera comparison at some point but in this quick one i can definitely tell you i've taken photos with the

Galaxy s20 i've taken photos and videos of the 12 pro so far and i mean i can tell you like i just have a better experience on the galaxy s20 camera i think this is the best camera of this year i mean probably that's 20 ultra but this one is a very good camera sensor the 12 pro has a very good camera sensor but i'll probably give the edge to the samsung galaxy s20 when it comes down to it now ending it off with the battery life

The samsung galaxy s20 has a four thousand million power battery the iphone 12 pro has a 2815 milli power battery and i can probably tell you you don't even have me to have to tell you to tell you this the galaxy s20 is probably going to have the better battery life i'll do a full battery comparison very soon but i'm going to tell you probably that the galaxy s20 will have the better battery life when it comes down to it so to kind of sum up this video and answer the question should you pick up the

Iphone 12 pro should you get the galaxy s20 i'll tell you like this if i had no bias to android or ios or whatever i feel like i would probably end up picking up the galaxy s20 this phone feels like the proper thousand dollar phone it has so much going for it it has such a beautiful display it's very powerful it's speed is pretty much the same on both sometimes faster sometimes and slower it's a very good phone fingerprint sensor in the display micro sd card slot there's just not that

Much to hate on it and in the used market it's not even the use mark on amazon it's actually cheaper than the iphone 12 pro and that's a huge asset of course this phone is not perfect it depreciates like crazy it's not going to be getting you know the same software updates as the 12 pro and it's you know it's not as smooth i would say as the 12 pro either ios is extremely smooth the galaxy s20 is not necessarily as smooth as a 12 pro but i just feel like this is the more

Complete phone but the 12 pro is my main phone right now that i'm using i own both of these i'm telling you right now but like 12 pro has a lot of assets too you know it has a great screen it has a better screen i guess they changed the design a little bit and i feel like this phone feels like a more premium phone you know it has a good heft to it it feels super solid and the flat sides whether you like them or not it really makes the phone look and feel that much more premium i think

I feel like the galaxy s20 has a beautiful front the rest of the phone is ugly the iphone 12 pro has a good looking front but the rest of the phone is beautiful too the smoothness factor here the camera is great i guess on the 12 pro it's better on the galaxy s20 and again like i said both these phones are solid but i feel like the s20 is a more complete flagship with that 8k capability 120hz refresh rate all those different things that's basically 2020 features

We really don't have any 2020 features on the iphone 12 pro with the lidar sensor but again that's not something everybody's going to use every day so i guess the choice is yours but that's kind of how i would sum it up if i had to pick up one of these i feel like i would get the galaxy s20 i'm currently going to be using the iphone 12 pro as my main phone and i'm probably going to keep it for like a year but if i had you know love if i didn't have a bias to ios already i'll follow

If i already wasn't invested super deep into it i'd probably end up using a galaxy s20 as my main phone between both of these so that really pretty much covers it up for the most part if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comments section below hit the like button know me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount so me so much if you guys can hit that also check out the other links down in the description as well my twitter my
