10 features Samsung's Galaxy S20 phones have that Apple's latest iPhones are missing

  • Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy S20 phones have several features that make them different from both last year’s Galaxy S10 and Apple’s current iPhones.
  • They all support 5G connectivity, unlike the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, and come with larger cameras with higher-resolution sensors.
  • Plus, their screens can reach a refresh rate of 120Hz, a feature Apple offers on the iPad but not the iPhone.

Earlier this week, Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S20 lineup, which offers a camera setup with larger sensors, 5G support across all variants, and a screen with a higher refresh rate, among other changes. All of these features differentiate the new lineup from last year’s Galaxy S10 — and Apple’s latest iPhones.

It’s worth noting, however, that Samsung’s phones are more expensive than Apple’s. The Galaxy S20 starts at $1,000, while the iPhone 11 begins at $700. The larger Galaxy S20 Plus begins at $1,200 and its larger sibling, the S20 Ultra, costs at least $1,400. The iPhone 11 Pro, by comparison, starts at $1,000, and the 11 Pro Max begins at $1,100. 

Here’s a closer look at some of the features found on Samsung’s Galaxy S20 that are missing from the iPhone.
