Whether you’re a longtime iPhone user, or loyal to Samsung’s Android phones, you might want to stop and take note of Apple’s new iPhone 12 series. Why? Because Apple is shaking things up: The design is all new, 5G service is available for the first time, and there’s an array of other features never before seen on an iPhone. Plus, for the top-of-the-line model in the series--the iPhone 12 Pro Max--there’s another unique element: The OLED screen on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is actually the largest iPhone display ever.
It’s still not large enough to match the newest flagship phone from Apple’s top rival, Samsung, however. And that smartphone--the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra--has some other new features vs the iPhone 12 Pro Max that are worth considering, too. So if you’re searching for a new phone, and it’s coming down to an iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy decision, which of the devices here is the best choice? What follows is the CRN USA Test Center’s comparison of Apple’s new iPhone 12 Pro Max vs Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on specs, features and price.
