Cell phone brands maintain a constant competition to dominate the mobile phone market with increasingly powerful devices, with more memory and cameras capable of capturing better quality photos.

An example of this is the confrontation between the new phone presented by Samsung, the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, two of the most powerful teams on the market and that they are expected to dominate the segment of high-end phones during the next year.

Here we tell you the differences between both devices and which we believe is the best:

1. Screen

Both phones share an Amoled screen with a high refresh rate of 120Hz, something common in high-end equipment.. One aspect in which they differ is in the size of the honeycombs because with its S22 Ultra it has a 6.8-inch one, only slightly larger than its competitor.

However, the screen iPhone supports Dolby Vision, a technology that supports greater color depth and brightness than HDR10 or HDR10+something that the Samsung lacks.

2. Design

The competition between both teams is very close with minimal differences in weight, volume and IP protection degree. In this case The main difference between the two, and what gives the iPhone an advantage, is the fact that it is designed to be able to repel dust and be waterproof..

3. Performance

It is something in which the two teams clearly excel because they are the top of the range of their respective brands. Both the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 Pro Max can be had in versions with up to 512GB of storage. In the section that differs is in their RAM memory since the latter only has 6GB, while the S22 Ultra has 12Gb.

Despite this it is the iPhone that stands victorious in almost all recognized benchmarks due to its better performance when performing tasks that require high processing power, this is due to its A15 Bionic chip.

Four. Battery

In technical terms, the phone Samsung should be the big winner in this category thanks to its 5,000 mAh battery versus the iPhone's 4,373 mAh.. However, thanks to its optimization, it is precisely the latter that has better performance.

5. Camera

As in the case of the battery, the numbers could suggest that the Samsung starts with a considerable advantage due to the 108 megapixels of its main camera that contrasts with the 12 megapixels of the iPhone.

However, this is not the reality, since said technical specification only refers to the size of the captured photographs and not to their quality, where both are on a par.

6. Price

Another factor to take into account because it has an important weight in choosing one phone or another is its price. In this section the iPhone is positioned as the clear winner for multiple reasons. The first, and most obvious, is that it is cheaper with a list price of $1,199 versus $1,399.

Secondly, there is the fact that the price of the iPhone suffers a much lower depreciation than that of phones with the Android operating system, so if you need to sell it in the future, it is possible to recover a higher percentage of the money invested.
