Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max is here, and it’s gunning for Samsung’s recently earned crown. The launch of Apple’s latest Max-labelled handset means that the Galaxy S10 Plus has some stiff competition; both handsets are extra-large, extra-powerful and extra-expensive.
If you’re looking to purchase either one of these handsets, then we congratulate you on your recent lottery win. We’re here to help you find the best phone for you – our comprehensive guide outlines the key differences between the iPhone 11 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 10
The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5in OLED display, while the S10 Plus uses a marginally smaller 6.4in AMOLED panel. The 11 Pro Max measures 8.3mm deep, while the S10 Plus comes in at a trim 7.8mm.
Design & Appearance
In terms of appearance, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has some thick bezels around the screen, with a wide notch and the same rounded edges as its stablemates. The 11 Pro Max comes in four colours – gold, silver, Space Grey and Midnight Green – and is made from stainless steel with a glass back.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 Plus includes sharper corners and slimmer bezels, with a dual hole-punch front camera to break up the otherwise unimpeded screen. The handset has a glass-coated back panel that comes in four colours: Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Green and Prism Blue.
Let’s be clear: neither one of these phones is cheap. The iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at £1,149 for the 64GB model, rising to £1,299 for 256GB and £1,499for the 512GB variant.
