If any Android phone has the ability to pull a large number of iPhone users away from Apple, it's the Galaxy S10+. It has exceptional hardware, an amazing display, and piles of features that cover what Apple can do and so much more. The software is more daunting, but ultimately more capable as well. Those teetering on the fence could lean toward Samsung after using this phone.

Apple's phones are keeping pace with the top-end Android phones today. Whether that means this is actually a "Pro" device doesn't really matter — the 11 Pro does just about everything the Android competition does, and has the huge draw of still offering access to Apple's software, apps and services ecosystem.

Though the number of people actively looking at switching between iPhone and Android isn't as big as the ones sticking in their lane, there's no better comparison to make in this arena than the latest offerings from Apple and Samsung.
What's the difference between the Galaxy S10+ and iPhone 11 Pro?
Putting aside all of the general Android versus iPhone comparisons to start, let's focus on the hardware differences. Samsung goes with a bigger display, 6.4 to 5.8 inches, and slims down the bezels in an attempt to make it manageable in one hand. Even with larger bezels, the iPhone 11 Pro is still smaller in height and width (though not weight), making it much easier to grasp in one hand — though if you see size as a benefit, you also have the option of getting the smaller Galaxy S10 (opens in new tab) instead.
For many people, the difference in usable display size will have more of an effect than the physical size in your hand, but that comes down to personal preference. Thankfully both phones have amazing OLED displays, with excellent colors, viewing angles and brightness. Samsung and Apple are neck-and-neck in smartphone display quality, with everyone else trailing well behind.
Elsewhere in the hardware, it's hard to find a fault in either of these phones. Samsung relies far more on glass and focuses on curves, whereas the iPhone 11 Pro is more substantial with a larger metal frame. Both have their good and bad angles (mostly the camera situations around the back), but both feel great and are worthy of the money.

As is so often the case with iPhones, the specs don't really tell the whole story. Sure the iPho
