If you prioritize a better camera system and can afford a higher price, the Apple iPhone 13 Pro would be the superior choice as it offers higher quality in both still photo and video capture, and has additional camera features such as a telephoto lens with a longer focal length and Dolby Vision HDR video. However, if you prefer a phone that costs less and still offers a high-resolution display, ample storage, and a decent camera with features like HDR10+ video, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 could be for you, acknowledging that its camera and overall performance might not match the iPhone's. The iPhone also has a higher refresh rate screen for smoother visuals, but this comes at a premium price. Both have wireless charging, but the Note10 offers a 3.5mm headphone jack and a stylus, which the iPhone lacks. Keep in mind the iPhone runs iOS, while the Note10 uses Android, which could influence your app ecosystem preference. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Dhruv Bhutani | October 2021
"The basic foundation of the phone is rock solid and essentials like UI navigation, apps, security, and privacy features are polished to a sheen. The camera works consistently well and takes some of the best pictures you can get out of a phone. The phone further embellishes it with performance that won’t have you reaching for a replacement for years, and the battery life is hands-down amongst the best you can get on a flagship. If you’ve been eyeing an iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro is as good as it gets."

Adam Ismail, Mark Spoonauer | June 2021
"The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 delivers epic battery life and a super-bright screen in a phenomenally compact design. The regular Note 10 should be a very special phablet — precisely because there's never been one this compact and easy to live with before."
