Which Cell Phone is Best for Me?

Choosing a cell phone in Oklahoma City is nowadays quite a task but an exciting one! With brands trying to one-up each other in every way, a consumer’s options are endless! While every price range offers a great variety to choose from but when it comes to getting the best the market has to offer, it boils down to a tough choice between two leading companies – Samsung and Apple.

Having a great phone has become all the more important for so many of us especially since the pandemic hit. After all, the virtual world is what’s kept us going – virtual meetings, virtual hangouts, virtual concerts and so much more! Depending on your phone usage, you’re bound to want a phone with certain special characteristics.

While both the top rung Samsung and the iPhones have all the above features, let’s dive into some differences that help decode your requirements and help you decide what phone is best for you!

The Cell Phone Operating System

This is probably the most important difference between the two. The Samsung phone uses the latest Android OS (Android 11) while the iPhone uses the apple device only iOS (the latest being 14.7.1). Android offers more ‘open source’ applications and hence possibly a greater variety of apps. Most Apple apps are proprietary, and many will probably never be available for the Samsung phone. If you simply must use a certain application, it’s best to check which platform it’s available on before you buy your new phone.

Camera

We love our cameras, we love taking selfies, we love editing our photos and sharing them with the world! A good camera is almost a necessity now. 

Maybe at one time, iPhones were known for exceedingly better cameras than the others, but not anymore. The iPhone 12 Pro boasts a ‘Pro camera system’ 12 Mega Pixel + 12 Megapixel camera on the rear and a 12 MP front camera as well. The Samsung S11 has a (take a deep breath) 108 MP + 13 MP + 8 MP rear camera and a 10 MP front camera! For the rear camera, that’s not a tough call to make. However, the front camera has a marked difference in specs!

Size

It’s got to fit your pocket (pun intended). The iPhone 12 is a smaller device with a 6.1-inch screen and 146.7 mm by 71.5 mm by 7.4 mm 9 (L x W x H) body. The S11 is a considerably larger phone but isn’t necessarily hard to handle – a 6.7-inch screen and a 161.9 mm x 73.7 mm x 7.8 mm body. If size matters, this should help you decide!

AI and Voice Assistants

With the Internet of Things becoming such a huge part of our lives, a virtual assistant is well, virtually indispensable now. Google Assistant wins hands down over Siri on this one. But just so you know, you can get Google Assistant for iPhone now too!

Battery Life

This can really depend on how well you treat your phone as it grows older. As a general rule of thumb, Samsung doesn’t need to be charged as often as an iPhone but it really all boils down to the TLC they get.
