Our Take

Apple’s display lacks the aesthetic appeal and brightness of Samsung’s Dynamic AMOLED display. A distraction-free experience is provided by Ultra because it does not contain the unpleasant Dynamic Island pill-shaped cutout. With 120Hz adaptive refresh rates, both phones. The Apple phone has a flat display, whereas the Samsung flagship smartphone has a display that beautifully bends into the frame on either side to sit more pleasantly in your palm.

Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 4,323 mAh battery, however, Samsung advertises a 5,000mAh battery for the S23 Ultra. Larger batteries do not, however, lead to longer endurance. Although we are aware that the iPhone 14 Pro Max has the best endurance level, we are unable to comment on it at this time. Instead, please wait for our review, which will be published very soon. Additionally, Apple offers certain life-saving emergency features like Emergency SOS and Crash Detection.

The unquestioned rulers of their own domains, Android and iOS, are both devices. The Samsung phone has a quad rear camera setup without a protrusion or cutout in terms of cameras. The top left corner of the iPhone has a square bump that houses three camera sensors.

Apple’s picture processing is excellent, but the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra now has a new ISOCELL HP2 200MP sensor, which is a smart camera that will automatically shoot in 200MP, 50MP, or 12MP if there is low light. Additionally, 8K 30fps resolution video recording is available. Nightography is also included with the front camera. Comparisons of the image quality, however, must wait till the review is out.

The latest custom chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 was created especially for Samsung. The future of gaming is real-time ray tracing, which is included. Additionally, a 2.7 bigger vapour cooler chamber is included.

Moreover, recycled aluminium and natural dye were used in the Samsung phone’s construction. It is the first smartphone with recycled glass Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

While the S23 ultra offers significant changes, the iPhone 14 Pro Max only receives slight tweaks. Although they are both legitimately high-end gadgets, there are several areas where one excels over the other, making it difficult to select between two more evenly matched competitors.
