Samsung Mocks Apple by Comparing the Galaxy S21 Ultra and iPhone 12 Pro Max

“Your phone upgrade shouldn’t be a downgrade.” This is how Samsung described the videos that show comparisons between the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The South Korean company and Apple both released new flagship handsets a few months apart, and of course, there is always the question of which phone is the best. So, Samsung responded with three videos highlighting the differences in smartphone cameras.

The taunt from the South Korean conglomerate emphasizes that the Galaxy S21 Ultra is clearly superior to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The videos began to be posted on May 17th, and the final comparison was posted on May 21st. The first video demonstrates the quality of Samsung’s space zoom on the high-end device when taking a photo of the moon. Check it out:

Although the iPhone 12 Pro Max is “sturdy,” it falls short in some configurations of the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In comparison to the iPhone 12, the Samsung smartphone has an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz. The iPhone 13 Pro will most likely have a 120 Hz ProMotion screen.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 108 MP lens on the back, as well as two additional 10 MP telephoto lenses and a 12 MP ultrawide lens. The iPhone 12 Pro Max has three cameras, one wide, one ultrawide, and one telephoto, all of which are 12 MP. Despite the fact that resolution is only one aspect of image quality, Samsung demonstrated this difference in the second video.

The most recent video emphasizes the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s “one-shot” feature. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max can only take one photo or record one video at a time, the Samsung smartphone can capture up to 14 different types of photos and videos (10 photos and 4 videos) in a single take.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has mocked Apple. When the US tech giant took the charger out of the box, Samsung immediately mocked the move. However, the South Korean company announced shortly afterward that it would do the same.

Of course, according to Samsung’s videos, the Galaxy S21 Ultra outperforms the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Do you think the South Korean brand’s smartphone cameras are better than Apple’s? According to some tests, the Apple cell phone outperforms the competition in terms of performance. Check it out in the video below.
