Camera Better Than iPhone 11
Phones are equipped with screens of different types. These are IPS with a diagonal of 6.1 inches on the iPhone and OLED on Samsung. The diagonal of the latter is 6.1 inches, the resolution is 3040 × 1440, which gives a pixel density of 550 PPI. Iphone 11 has a lower density at 326 PPI, although there is no pixelation on any display.
Screen test results:
The display on the Samsung S10 is better as it delivers higher brightness and infinite contrast. Plus, it’s OLED capable of HDR10 video playback, so quality content will look cooler on Samsung. But Apple also has to give it credit. “iPhone 11” received a cool IPS-matrix with accurate colors and high contrast. It will appeal to users who have eye pain from OLED screens.
Price comparison. Samsung Galaxy S10 vs iPhone 11. Comparison of Cameras, Screens, Batteries, Processors
Both smartphones in the title are flagships. Samsung S10 was released in March 2019, six months later the “eleventh iPhone” was pulled up. Let’s figure out which device is better to take in late 2019. Early 2019.
Iphone 11 has a 3,110mAh battery and comes with a 5W charger that is not compatible with fast charging technology. “Native” adapter provides only 18% charge in 30 minutes, a full cycle lasts 4 hours.
The Samsung S10 offers a 3400 mAh battery, a 15 W charger in the box. With it the flagship charges up to 48% in 30 minutes from scratch, a full cycle lasts 1 hour and 31 minutes. Wireless and reversible charging is also announced. Iphone 11 also has wireless charging, but not reversible.
|Iphone 11||Samsung S10|
|Continuous conversations, screen off||17:45 h||21:19 h|
|Internet surfing, brightness 200 cd / m2||15:29 h||10:10 h|
|Video playback, brightness 200 cd / m2||18:43 h||12:56 h|
In terms of autonomy, “iPhone” wins, as it keeps surfing the Internet for 5 hours longer and gives 6 hours of video playback. But Samsung is more autonomous in operating mode with the screen off, in particular, it guarantees 3.5 hours of talks.
The iPhone 11 has a powerful Apple A13 Bionic processor with improved graphics and NPU (dedicated neural processing unit), which provides not only performance, but also cool night mode, shooting 4K video with the front camera. So far, it is the most powerful chip in the mobile world.
The Samsung S10 has a powerful Exynos 9820, an 8nm core processor with powerful Mongoose M4 units and Mali-G76 MP12 graphics. I will not describe the characteristics, it is appropriate to give the test results in benchmarks:
|Iphone 11||Samsung S10|
|GeekBench 4.1 (single core)||5477||4543|
|GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)||13882||10174|
|GFX 3.1 Manhattan graphics test (1080p offscreen)||121||68|
|GFX 3.1 Car scene graphics test (1080p offscreen)||76||43|
In terms of performance, the iPhone 11 wins. It gives out almost 2x graphics performance and offers functionality that has not been previously seen on any other phone: shooting 4K / 60 FPS on any camera. Main, wide-angle, front.
Comparison of characteristics
Now that we know the main differences between smartphones, let’s dig deeper.
The iPhone 11 has a 12MP f / 1.8 aperture primary camera sensor with Dual Pixel focusing technology and optics stabilization. Additional module. 12 MP with a wide-angle lens, but without autofocus and even more so without stabilization.
On the Samsung S10, everything is more interesting:
- Main sensor: 12 megapixels, with a dynamic aperture of f / 1.5-2.4, 1.4 microns, Dual Pixel autofocus, there is optical stabilization
In fact, the characteristics of the sensors say little, but the presence of a telephoto camera on Samsung is already a plus.
11th place Samsung Galaxy S20
The new flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra has been positioned, in particular, as the best camera phone in the world, and therefore should compare favorably not only with competitors, but also with its brothers in the line. At the same time, even the difference between the Galaxy S20 and S20 models was intentionally emphasized. The most budgetary smartphone did not receive the Depth Sensor module, the cost of which is not so high, but in practice, many Galaxy S20 users will feel its absence. This camera is designed to improve the now very popular portrait shots with background blur. Otherwise, the technical characteristics of the Galaxy S20 cameras are identical to the S20.
- Ultra-wide-angle: 12 MP, dot size 1.4 microns, aperture F / 2.2;
- Wide-angle: 12 MP, size 1.8 microns, aperture F / 1.8, optical image stabilization;
- Telephoto lens: 64 MP, 0.8 microns, aperture F / 2.0, optical image stabilization;
- Hybrid optical zoom 3x, digital zoom 30x;
- Front: 10 MP, size 1.22 microns, aperture F / 2.2.
3rd place Huawei Mate 30 Pro
If we consider the technical characteristics of the cameras Huawei Mate 30 Pro, then there are not so many differences with the predecessor P30 Pro and they concern, first of all, the ultra-wide-angle camera:
- Main: 40 MP, matrix size 1 / 1.7 inches, 27 mm equivalent focal length, aperture F / 1.6, PDAF autofocus, optical image stabilization;
- Ultra-wide-angle: 40 MP, matrix size 1 / 1.54 inches, 18 mm focal length, aperture F / 1.8, PDAF;
- Telephoto lens: 8 MP matrix size 1/4 inch, 80 mm focal length, aperture F / 2.4, PDAF, optical image stabilization;
- Tof 3D Portrait Camera.
So, for shooting photos and videos, roughly speaking, two separate modules of 40 MP resolution each are responsible, and the first has optical stabilization, while the second noticeably cuts the quality of the clips when using digital camera movement correction.
In fact, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro camera can offer a higher level of detail in the corners of the photo when shooting during the day and slightly less noticeable noise in low light conditions, the rest of the differences are almost impossible to notice with the naked eye.
As for the video, the main feature here is the slow motion mode with a frequency of 7680 frames per second. In the video below you can compare such a SlowMo with a frequency of 960 fps.
8th place Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition
Perhaps the most anticipated camera phone of 2019, which was rated by DxOMark experts as equal in shooting capabilities to the leader of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro rating, but at the same time it costs significantly less than a competitor.
In the description, the 5-module camera Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition looks very impressive:
- Primary lens: 108 MP, 25 mm focal length, aperture f / 1.69, optical image stabilization;
- Small telephoto lens: 12.19 MP, 50 mm focal length, f / 2.0 aperture;
- Large telephoto lens: 7.99 MP, 94 mm focal length, f / 2 aperture, optical image stabilization;
- Ultra-wide angle lens: 20.11 MP, 16 mm focal length, f / 2.2 aperture;
- Macro lens: 2 MP, aperture f / 2.4
Add two dual LED flashes to this and you have a camera phone that is second to none on the market for the listed characteristics. Nevertheless, in fact, an impressive technical description gives a result comparable to more modest, but more carefully designed and high-quality systems, for example, in the same Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
14th place iPhone 11
Unlike its predecessor iPhone XR, which had only one lens (a standard 12MP wide-angle module), the iPhone 11 received an additional ultra-wide-angle camera, which not only added the ability to “reverse” wide-angle zoom, but also significantly expanded the functional scope of the camera in general. Among other things, the iPhone 11 has appeared: night mode, auto-correction, improved Smart-HDR, etc.
Which Smartphone Has the Best Camera in 2020. Top 10
Engineering thought has reached a ceiling. Further improvement of cameras is objectively impossible without a radical change in the design of the smartphone itself. All flagship models are equipped with almost perfect, from a technical point of view, modules and to determine the winner, you will have to go an alternative way.
As smartphone users race to fill their file storages and social media accounts with photos of cats, landscapes and their loved ones, engineers are racking their brains over how to improve their already excellent cameras. Over, the competition among the latter is even tougher, because the struggle is not for likes, but for millions of dollars of potential profit for the company.
Several years ago, looking at the camera results of the flagship devices of Apple, Samsung and other A-brands, it seemed that the evolution of these modules was about to stop. High-quality, “silent” photos even in low light conditions, ultra-fast autofocus, optical stabilization when shooting video. What more? However, there is no limit to perfection, the emergence of new features and improvements depends solely on user demand.
By mid-spring, all the leading vendors have already delighted the public with announcements and releases of fresh flagship models of smartphones, which means we can summarize intermediate results. In this post, we will take a look at the 10 best cameras in mobile devices as of 2020.
All of the smartphones presented below take excellent photos and videos, however, narrowly focused specialists can still prioritize, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of a particular model. This rating is compiled according to the data of DxOMark experts and other reputable resources.
2nd place Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
By far one of the best camera phones on the market in 2020, which fully met and even exceeded the expectations of Samsung fans. From a technical point of view, the device is equipped with the following main modules:
- Ultra-wide-angle camera: 12 MP resolution, 1.4 micron pixel size, F / 2.2 aperture;
- Wide-angle: 108 MP, pixel size 0.8 micron and 2.4 micron in Nonacell dot merging mode, aperture f / 1.8, optical image stabilization;
- Telephoto lens: 48 MP, size 0.8 microns (1.6 microns in Nonacell mode), aperture F / 3.5, optical image stabilization;
- Depth sensor: camera for portrait shots;
- 10x Hybrid Optical Zoom, 100x Digital Zoom;
- Front camera: 40 MP, pixel size 0.7 microns (1.4 microns in Nonacell mode), aperture f / 2.2.
As you can see from the description, the front camera of the flagship has been significantly improved, compared to both previous models of the line, and with the younger versions of the Galaxy S20 / S20 with last year’s 10-megapixel lens.
However, the main innovations concerned, of course, the main camera, which has the latest 108-megapixel module of Samsung’s own production, which takes pictures with the highest level of detail and can combine pixels using Nonacell technology to obtain the optimal image quality and energy consumption. In practice, this means that the user can, for example, enlarge the resulting image several times, cut out the scene from the background and get a picture that is practically not inferior in detail to the original image.
Another interesting novelty is support for shooting video in 8K resolution. Actually, such functionality is not very much in demand on the market, because monitors with such a high resolution are still very rare, but the owners of new Samsung 8K TVs may well be interested in purchasing a flagship smartphone.
In addition, we cannot fail to mention the 4x optical, 10x hybrid and 100x digital zoom, which allows, with proper skill, to shoot objects at very long distances in quite acceptable quality.
9th place: Huawei P40
The line of smartphones Huawei P-series 2020 was released under the slogan “Visionary Photography”, but the company failed to make the expected breakthrough in the field of mobile photography. Nevertheless, gadgets of the Huawei P40 family (P40 Lite, P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro) predictably took high positions in the ratings of camera phones due to the company’s software developments and the successful experience of cooperation with Leica.
So, Huawei P40 has a main camera consisting of three modules:
- Ultravision main lens: 50 MP matrix resolution, 23 mm focal length, f / 1.9 aperture with Octa Phase Detection autofocus system;
- Ultra wide-angle lens: 16 MP, 17 mm focal length, f / 2.2 aperture;
- Telephoto lens: 8 MP, 3x optical, 10x hybrid and 30x digital zoom, 80mm focal length, f / 2.4 aperture;
- Front camera: 32 MP with IR sensor for depth detection and bokeh.
When compared with the older models P40 Pro and P40 Pro, the relatively low resolution of the telephoto lens and weak zoom capabilities are immediately striking, but the device is quite capable of competing with many flagships from other manufacturers. It should be noted that Huawei P40 received a new phase detection autofocus technology Octa Phase Detection, which was separately focused on during the presentation, as well as the ability to shoot video in 4K quality on the front camera.
13th Honor P20 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro
Honor P20 Pro
The Huawei sub-brand pleases buyers with more democratic price tags and very good cameras, the experience in the construction of which is clearly borrowed from its older brother. The Honor P20 Pro does not have the same zoom capabilities as the Huawei P30 Pro or the latest Samsung smartphones, but it still delivers excellent shooting quality, rated by DxOMark experts at 111 points. The hardware characteristics of the camera phone are as follows:
- Main lens Sony IMX586 with 1/2 “matrix size, 48 MP resolution, f / 1.4 aperture, OIS and 28 mm focal length;
- 8-megapixel “telephoto”, matrix size 1 / 4.4 ″, aperture f / 2.4, focal length 80 mm;
- 16MP wide-angle lens with 1 / 3.06 ″ size and f / 2.2 aperture;
- Macro lens with 2 MP sensor.
Oneplus 7 Pro
Like its DxOMark-rated neighbor Honor P20 Pro, OnePlus’ flagship smartphone has a Sony IMX586 main lens and a 48MP 1/2 “sensor, but with a slightly weaker f / 1.6 aperture and a 26mm focal length. Two additional modules are also practically indistinguishable: a telephoto 8 MP, f / 2.4 and a shirik 16 MP, f / 2.2, but the telephoto lens, unlike its competitor, has its own optical stabilization system. As a result, we get a smartphone that is capable of photographing and shooting video at a very high quality level by the standards of 2020, for which it deserves a high place in the rating of camera phones.
4th place iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
In the DxOMark ranking, the cameras of the iPhone 11 Pro / iPhone 11 Pro Max outperformed the South Korean smartphones Samsung Galaxy Note 10, while the overall rating of iPhones was significantly reduced for video shooting. Just 117 points, 124 for photos and 102 for video. Nevertheless, the company’s experts noted that Apple managed to implement the technologies necessary to directly compete with the best camera phones on the market in a year.
Following the trend, Apple has equipped its flagship smartphones with a triple camera with the following specifications:
- 12MP main wide-angle lens with ƒ / 1.8 aperture;
- Telephoto lens 12 MP, ƒ / 2.0 aperture;
- 12MP Ultrawide ƒ / 2.4 aperture 120 degree field of view.
In addition, in smartphones of 2019, Apple has implemented a night shooting mode that improves the quality of photos and videos taken in extremely low ambient light, which is relevant for all, without exception, lovers of mobile photography.
Multimedia. Screen. Comparison of technical characteristics
The iPhone X measures 5.8 “and uses a 2436 x 1125 Super Retina HD display, while the new iPhone 11 uses a 6.1” Liquid Retina HD display with a 1792 x 828 pixel display. Also smartphones are the depth to which the phone can be lowered. In the new version, the phone can be immersed up to 2 meters, while in the old version. Up to 1 meter. Both displays contain True Tone technology (a system that changes the temperature of the screen based on the light that hits the screen).
Both phones are available in storage from 64GB to 256GB, and the Pro version can hold 512GB.

Judging by the size of the phones, we can conclude that the new version of the IPhone is slightly larger than the previous version.
The A11 Bionic Neural Engine (neural) is installed in the IPhone X, and the A13 Bionic is installed in the IPhone 11 and also with the Neural Engine, but the 3rd generation.
Cellular communication for both products is the same. This is GSM / EDGE, Bluetooth version 5, built-in GLONASS, NFC with read mode, express cards with backup power, and Wi-Fi calling.
Also, secure authentication with FaceID (unlocking using face recognition using a camera) has not changed, Apple Pay has not changed, the sound is supported by Dolby Atmos and has flawless sound and Siri.
Power and battery
Manufacturers say the new iPhone 11 lasts 1 hour longer than the previous iPhone. Also, both can be charged wirelessly and have a fast charge function.
The sensors also remained unchanged: a three-axis gyroscope, an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor and a barometer.
The new “iPhone” supports 2 SIM cards of which Nano-SIM and eSIM can be used.
Esim. Electronic SIM card built into the device.
Compare Apple iPhone X (10) vs Apple iPhone 11
If in the previous series of IPhone there were 2 cameras on the back, one of which was wide-angle, and the second was telephoto, then the new series “iPhone” is equipped with 2 cameras, one of which is wide-angle, and the second. Ultra wide angle. The Pro version already has 3 cameras on the back. Wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto. Iphone 11 now features night vision, brighter True Tone flash with Slow Sync, Portrait with improved bokeh (background blur), and next-generation Smart HDR.
Video filming has not changed: video in 4K quality with a frequency of 24 to 60 frames per second. 1080p video at 30 or 60 frames per second. Has 2x optical zoom, Slow Motion video with 1080p quality up to 240 frames per second, “Timelaps” mode with image stabilization.
The front camera has changed, now in the new series of smartphones there is a 12 megapixel camera (in the old 7 megapixel series), improved Smart HDR, cinematic video stabilization, the ability to shoot videos in 4K quality at a frequency of 24 to 60 frames per second (the previous version had the maximum quality 1080p video recording), 6 portrait lighting options (up from 5 on the older phone), and extended dynamic range when shooting video at 30 frames per second.
Expensive version of Apple IPhone 11 Pro Max
This version of the 11 Pro Max has a 6.5 “Super Retina XDR display. The body is made of textured frosted glass with a classic stainless steel band. The longest battery life in an Apple smartphone. Lasts 5 hours longer than the iPhone XS Max. Water resistant up to 4 meters. As mentioned earlier, can contain up to 512 GB of memory. Resolution 2688 × 1242 pixels.

- Width: 77.8mm.
- Thickness: 8.1mm.
- Weight: 226 grams. (The heaviest).
In the conclusion, it can be noted that the new iPhone model has become better than the previous one, but these changes are not particularly large-scale. We can say that this is a modified version of the IPhone XS. The most pleasant changes. This, of course, a screen, glass texture, improved camera and video shooting, a modified battery, as well as support for two SIM cards.

Power adapter for iPhone 11 Pro
How the iPhone 11 differs from the iPhone 11 Pro
Apple’s newest smartphones, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, will begin shipping on September 20. Despite the fact that they look very SIMilar, smartphones at the same time are very different: for example, the iPhone 11 is made in an aluminum case, and its front and back are made of glass, while the iPhone 11 has replaced the aluminum frame with stainless steel and made the back matt surface. And this is not the only difference.
New iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
Apple claims to have made “the toughest glass in a smartphone” for all three iPhones in 2019, and promises that it will stay intact if you drop it or otherwise accidentally damage your iPhone.
Iphone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro connectivity
Both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro include 802.11ax Wi-Fi and Gigabit LTE. They support Bluetooth 5.0 and have NFC readers to support Apple Pay. In terms of wireless interfaces, there is no difference at all.
Iphone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro display
Iphone 11 features a 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina HD” IPS display, while the iPhone 11 Pro family boasts a sharper OLED “Super Retina XDR” display. While the IPS display on the iPhone 11 delivers true-to-life colors, the OLED on the iPhone 11 Pro is brighter in sunlight, can display true blacks and more detail in bright areas. In particular, the iPhone 11 peaks at 625 nits, while the iPhone 11 Pro peaks at 1200 nits. Both models support True Tone and Haptic Touch, but neither of them support 3D Touch, which Apple has dropped.
The IPS display is mainly what Apple has been able to bring down the price of the iPhone 11 over the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, but it will be more than enough for most users who use their iPhones for social networking and gaming.
How the iPhone 11 differs from the iPhone 11 Pro
We have already compared the iPhone XR and iPhone 11, it is time now to push the heads of representatives of the new generation of iPhone. For clarity, we have compiled a small table using official Apple data. The main differences are highlighted in red.
Iphone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro Max
If you are interested in learning more (and judging by what they say in our Telegram chat, this is how it is), now we will tell you.
Iphone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro camera
Aside from the display, the camera is one of the biggest differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
The iPhone 11 has a dual 12-megapixel camera system with wide and ultra-wide lenses. It also supports a new Night Mode for high-quality low-light shots, auto adjust, optical image stabilization, 2x optical zoom, brighter flash, six-effect portrait mode, and Smart HDR.
By comparison, the main difference between the iPhone 11 Pro’s camera is its third telephoto lens. You also get dual optical image stabilization, 2x optical zoom, and 10x digital zoom. The main advantage of a telephoto lens is that it allows you to magnify distant objects without losing image clarity. For example, when photographing wildlife from afar or photographing at a sporting event.

Iphone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro performance
Both the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro (like the iPhone 11 Pro Max) are powered by Apple’s Bionic A13 chip, which the company claims is the fastest processor in a smartphone.
Iphone 11 specifications
The A13 Bionic has four high-performance cores that are 20 percent faster and use 40 percent less power than the A12 Bionic, and two more cores that are 20 percent faster and 30 percent more efficient. The amount of RAM is still unknown, but there are assumptions.
Which to choose. Iphone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro
Apple continues to offer customers a wide range of iPhone software. However, for 89,990 for the younger iPhone 11 Pro, you get the same great camera as the more expensive iPhone 11 Pro Max, along with an OLED display and extended battery life. So if you are on a tight budget, consider the iPhone 11 and only take the iPhone 11 Pro Max if you really need a large 6.5-inch display.
