iPhone [Pro] (19459003) The iPhone 11 Pro is here as Apple releases the device for people who rely on their smartphone to get things done. Which also becomes Samsung's step in favor of the Galaxy Note 10 .
The iPhone 999, a 5.8-inch iPhone boasts an all-new three-lens system with a camera, exquisite design and the new Apple A13 Bionic chipset – the most powerful company to ever incorporate into a phone. Meanwhile, the Note 10, a 6.3-inch Note 10 has its signature S Pen Pen, the narrowest bezel we saw on the flagship handset this year (thanks in part to the Infinity-O cut-out camera in the front) and comes standard with four times the storage on iPhone 11 Pro.

iPhone 11 Pro Vs. Galaxy Note 10: Design
The iPhone 11 Pro is shorter than the Galaxy Note 10, but both devices are about as wide and thick. However, Apple's phone numbers are noticeably heavier – 6.63 ounces compared to the Note 5.93 – and this is despite the fact that the Note 10 carries a whole stylus.
It must be said that the Note 10 also offers a fresher design, thinner bezels, a larger screen-to-body ratio and no slit; Instead, Samsung has chosen a very small camera to drill holes in the display.
The iPhone 11 series essentially recycles the design language of the iPhone XS and iPhone X before them, except for some refreshed materials, such as Apple's new matte glass finish on the back of the Pro model. Still, the design of the iPhone certainly has a lot of fans, and we like Apple's new mid-green color added to the list (even if it's barely different from Space Gray under most lights).
Of course, the biggest difference in the design of the iPhone 11 Pro comes from the courtesy of its cameras with three lenses – each protruding from a larger, sculpted square base. It doesn't look as awful as we feared it might come from leaking renders, though the camera punch protrudes like a sore thumb compared to the more lenient approach of the Note 10.
iPhone 11 Pro vs. Galaxy Note 10: Display  No matter which phone you choose, you get an HDR certified, OLED display that can be extremely bright. In fact, Apple claims that the Super Retina XDR panel of the iPhone 11 Pro can achieve 800 nits in outdoor use and 1200 nits in extreme sunlight when displaying HDR content.
Right now, our leader in brightness among OLED displays is going to be the 6.8-inch Galaxy Note 10 Plus which reached 686 nits below our light meter. 800 rivets would be quite a breakthrough and you can be sure that we will put Apple's claim to the test as soon as we can.
In resolution, the iPhone closely has the Note Beat, with 2436 x 1125 pixels versus Samsung's 2280 x 1080. A pair that has a smaller iPhone display and the Apple flagship boasts 458 pixels per inch – 57 more than the Galaxy phablet  What we won't be able to appreciate until we spend more time with the iPhone 11, is how accurate and colorful this Super Retina XDR panel is. It will be a difficult time to beat the Note 10's dynamic AMOLED screen, which revealed 125% coverage of the sRGB color space, as well as a Delta-E accuracy estimate of 0.26. (The closer to zero, the better in the last test.)
iPhone 11 Pro vs. Galaxy Note 10: Camera and Video
Here is one area that will make or break the iPhone 11 Pro by any comparison. Apple has assembled a trio of 12MP cameras in its flagship for 2019 – one is a 2x optical zoom phone and the other is connected to a 120-degree ultra-wide lens that can pull up to 0.5x . The front camera has also noticed an upgrade – from a 7-MP sensor in the iPhone XS to a new 12-megapixel one that can slow down video.
The Galaxy Note 10 also has three lenses of its own on the back and on paper, the pattern is similar to that of Apple. The main 12-MP lens is surrounded by a 12-MP telephoto and 16-MP ultra-wide shooters, the latter of which pulls up to a 123-degree field of view. Samsung also has the advantage of aperture; while the main iPhone lens is fixed at ƒ /1.8, the notes can switch from ƒ /1.5 to ƒ /2.4, depending on the stage lighting.
Speaking of light, Apple's newest flagship is its first with a special night mode that it intends to take for low-light photography, such as is the Pixel 3 innovative Night Sight mode achieved last year. The Note 10 has a similar feature, also called night mode, although it did not produce the best results in our camera shootout on a Google phone .
In fact, while the Note 10's optics compare favorably with the iPhone 11 Pro on paper, we are not so sure that Samsung's computer photography capabilities are strong enough to win the Korean company one step ahead of its Cupertino rivals. The Note 10 and Galaxy S10 use similar camera systems and both tend to produce images that are slightly washed out and lacking in contrast. In particular, shallow-depth portraits are a major weakness for Samsung, while Apple practically invented the feature with the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016.
The iPhone 11 Pro's cameras will continue to be enhanced after launch. The software update will introduce a new feature called Deep Fusion, which combines nine different exposures and then uses artificial intelligence to deliver an optimized result, drawing the most exposed pixels from each experience.
Apple has also renewed its focus on video with the iPhone 11 Pro, as the phone's three rear cameras can capture 4K frames at 60 frames per second, complete with cinematic stabilization. Changing from one lens to another while shooting is seamless, because the A13 Bionic chip always optimizes the tone of cameras you don't use to fit the active one.
iPhone 11 Pro vs Galaxy Note 10: Productivity
Apple's new A13 Bionic chipset is backed by 4GB of RAM (according to reports and expirations) on the iPhone 11 Pro, and the company claims the combination makes the latest its flagships the fastest money for a smartphone to buy. We will again be the judge of this once we can share benchmarking results, although these A Series chips certainly have a reputation for bubble performance – even despite the potentially scarce amount of RAM.
Apple's A12 and A11 processors were also the fastest in their time and compared to last year's Apple processor boosted each of the four cores of silicone efficiency and two high-speed cores up to 20%. In the meantime, these power cores can be up to 30% more efficient than those in the A12, which can mean great things for the battery life of the iPhone 11 Pro.
While the A13 is likely to expand its lead over the Snapdragon 855 in the Galaxy Note 10, Samsung's phone takes advantage of 8GB of RAM. That said, iOS is a little better at managing background processes and shutting down battery drain software from Android, so we don't expect Samsung's memory advantage to make a huge difference in testing.
iPhone 11 Pro vs Galaxy Note 10: Battery and Charge
Apple may not advertise it, but according to reports, the iPhone 11 Pro has a significantly larger battery than its predecessor, estimated at 3190 mAh. We'll have to wait for a step to confirm it, but if this is true, the battery of the new iPhone is over 500 mAh larger than the iPhone XS and only 310 mAh smaller than the Galaxy Note 10.
Apple says the iPhone 11 Pro should last four hours longer in charge than last year's 5.8 -inch model. And for the first time, Cupertino ships these premium models with 18W USB Type-C chargers in the box. (Previously, iPhone owners had to buy their own fast charger, and the 6.1-inch iPhone 11 is not yet available with one.) It is reported that this faster charger will reach 50% capacity in half an hour. The Galaxy Note 10's 25W brick received the phone up to 47% over the same time span in our testing.
Note 10 average 9 hours and 25 minutes in our custom battery test where we have endless phones that go through a series of web pages with 150 nits of screen brightness above LTE. This is still less than the 9:41 result on the iPhone XS, so we'll be eager to see the difference with the new iPhone 11 Pro battery.
Both devices support wireless charging, but only the Note 10 can charge other devices wirelessly. The iPhone 11 Pro included such a feature that led to its release, but unfortunately did not make it to the end product.
iPhone 11 Pro vs Galaxy Note 10: Software and Special Features
The iPhone 11 Pro ships with iOS 13 on board, which offers new features like dark mode, look around in maps, voice control for a free navigation and swiping system. iOS 13 comes out on September 19th for current iPhone phones, one day before new models arrive in stores.
Galaxy Note 10 sports interface of Samsung One One interface of Android 9 Pie, and probably Android 10 will appear next year. However, the S Pen features of the device do set it apart from other phones on the market, such as the ability to transcribe notes and navigate some applications using stylus aerial gestures. There is also Samsung Dex Mode that lets you access the desktop interface for your Note when plugged into a monitor or computer.
iPhone 11 Pro vs Galaxy Note 10: Price and Availability
iPhone 11 Pro hits stores Sept 20 for $ 999, though you can order the phone now. You will only receive 64 GB of storage for this amount. If you want 256GB it will set you back $ 1,149, while the 512GB model is $ 1349.
Meanwhile, there is only one Galaxy Note 10 configuration that gives you 256GB of memory for $ 949. Unlike most Samsung phones, this phone does not have a microSD slot for expandable memory – so 256GB is all you get. You'll need to upgrade to $ 1,099 Galaxy Note 10 Plus if you want expandable storage.
If your phone's camera is particularly important to you, or if you are an iPhone user who could really use some extra battery life, the iPhone 11 Pro looks like a valuable upgrade. (We'll know for sure after reviewing the phone.) However, the Galaxy Note 10 is more futuristic in design, the added functionality of the S Pen and all the extra storage you get for $ 200 less than you would have to pay for a similar The iPhone makes Samsung's phablet a better choice for those who are particularly concerned about the price.
You can expect our full verdict on how the iPhone 11 Pro leveled up against the Note 10 after we were able to perform further tests.
