Should I buy a new iPhone X or a Samsung Galaxy 10?

 

The newest smartphones offer customers the best in cellphone technology.  Both brands have a great reputation for making the best wireless devices on the market.  The iPhone X series of phones include the X, XR, XS, and XS max.  The Samsung galaxy 10 series includes the 10, 10e, and the 10 plus.

The new iPhones finally stepped up their technology by using the superior OLED’s.  The XR still uses the LCD which makes it the cheapest of the lot.  Besides this difference all of the models offer the same processor speeds and camera qualities.  There is very little difference between the size of the X, XR, XS.  The XR is the thickest of the four because the LCD uses a backlight which adds to the overall thickness.  The XS max has the biggest screen available for any iPhone.

Samsung chose to continue with the curved screen with the Galaxy 10.  The curved screen really comes into play when you use the virtual reality viewer.  Galaxy users will welcome the 10e, which reminds users of the popular mini-series from days past.

A great question to ask yourself when choosing between these two brands is familiarity.  If you are a Mac user and have been for a while than the iPhone will be easier to use.  Having an iPad, iPhone and Mac will make a happy family.  You’ll be able to communicate with each device and be able to use applications like Apple TV.  The Apple operating system is one of the easiest to use, which appeals to a wide demographic group.

If you had a cellphone in the past that used android operating system than the Galaxy 10 will work best for you.  This operating system is the most popular cellphone OS and is used in many cellphone brands.  Another reason and probably the most popular one to use Galaxy is the superior craftsmanship.  Samsung continually makes some of the best cellphones in the market.  They are very durable and can last for a long time with proper care.

As with vehicles, we need to start talking about phone maintenance and repair costs.  These newer devise are very expensive, some costs close to $1300.  If you don’t have insurance than you know how expensive it is to fix your device.  On average it’s much cheaper to fix iPhones than Galaxy using a third market repair facility.  The cost of the aftermarket screens are much cheaper for iPhones compared to the Galaxies.  If you tend to break your phone than you should consider this when making your decision.
