Having owned apples line up and samsungs line up I often get asked which is better so though I would post about it so here goes.

S23 ultra vs 14 PM 

The ultra for the most part is the better phone. The 120hz is true 120hz, promotion ramps the hz down too harshly which creates stutters. Again on paper for brightness the PM should win but most of the time the ultra wins again because the PM pulls in the brightness too harshly. The iPhone is actually ruined by its own software whereas the ultra just shines through and everything should work as it should with no bugs. Camera I will say video at 1X is better on the iPhone but got everything else the ultra is better. It takes better photos and that zoom is immense. I also like how you can control your galaxy. For example the 14 PM always on display stay on when apple says so if the room is dark or it's night time the aod turns into a s o d (sometimes on display) my Galaxy aod just shines through the night. So the winner of the phone is the ultra. My only gripe with the ultra is durability could do with being a bit better but it is beautifully made so you can't have it all.

Galaxy watch 5 pro vs apple watch series 7

This one is a tough call. I prefer the battery on the 5 Pro, the look of it and the straps. I like the customisation and the layout of it all. However the series 7 had a much brighter AOD and it was just fluid and 5 pro does stutter slightly. I'm still very impressed with my 5 pro and it serves my needs better than the series 7 however due to odd stutters and dim aod in bright sunlight going to have to call this one a tie.

Galaxy buds pro 2. 

This is a tough one. I prefer the look of the galaxy buds pro 2 and the features of it. However I do find the airpods pro 2 more comfortable. Sounds on the pods is well balanced and crisp. Sound on the buds have loads of bass which is great but treble can be suspect. I still love my Galaxy buds pro 2 but got give this one to the airpods

Tablets ipad mini vs galaxy tab s7 

Now this is a weird one and seems unfair but what I paid for the mini is what I paid for the s7 and honestly I really do find samsung tabs better than ipads. This will probably be widely disputed but I just find samsung does a much better job of implementing its software better OK the big screen. It makes much more use of it. Not to mention you get 120hz and a crisper screen. Most people believe that ipads are king of the tablet but nope for me it's got to be galaxy tabs. Only gripe with the tabs is software support isn't great my 2020 s7 is dormant from September but oh well means I have to by an s9 🤣 and I'm sure support will be longer on that.

There you have it. Well done if you got to the end. I'm a fully converted galaxy man now. I wouldn't never say never iPhone again but for the foreseeable future I will be here and as long as exynos doesn't come back I will remain (unless exynos actually turns out not be a bag t u r d s)

@AshtabS9Ultra  

My last iPhone was the iPhone 6 Plus.

Lack of innovation and the fact it had the capability of bending was enough for me.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

To be honest @AshtabS9Ultra  I've never personally felt ive had any issues with the Exynos soc in the phone's I've owned.

I purchased a Samsung Note²⁰ from Samsung.com and also imported the same model from Hong Kong to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon soc version and felt that it had better optimisation in regards to battery usage and did feel smoother.

That said I enjoyed using the Exynos model just as much.

Yea for me it's the fact that technically it's less powerful I mean maybe my battery was bad because I used to have base models but I tried a s21 U and it was still poor. This year with the s23 ultra it has battery that I have only dreamt about a samsung having in the past. I'm sure they won't go backwards though. This new ultra has set the bar and I believe samsung has sorted its battery life out.

Yea iphone vs samsung isn't really a fact its all about what the individual prefers. If I could merge the 2 together that would be ideal but right now I'm on the samsung train.

Same, got exynos s21, had it since Jan 2022. No issues. Other than battery drain cause by an update but that was fixed within a couple of months a few security patches later.

The only reason I am sticking with Samsung over I-Phone at this point is for the superior Photo and Video sharpness and capabilities.

I used to brag to I-Phone users how I could replace my battery, add extra memory, and a light would blink while the phone was on a table across the room, letting me know I had a message of some kind when it was on silent.

Now, all those things that made Samsung superior to I-Phone are gone.  

To add insult to injury, my 24 year-old son was an avid Samsung-Android user just like his dad (me), up until last month.  Now, he has joined my wife and my other son as I-Phone customers.  On our family plan of 4, I am the only one left with Samsung/Android.   

If the new I-phone cameras are as good as Samsung's, I might change too, because I-Phone allows the screen to stay on while the phone is laying on the table and you're on a conference call.  No extra software is needed.  Permanent "Screen On" is important to me, because I have to press buttons during my conference calls...can't do that when the screen is black.  Can't understand why Samsung doesn't add more flexibility.  It's like they're going BACKWARDS.   

That's Too bad... ☹️
