If you prioritize a larger screen and longer battery life, and are willing to pay a premium, the Apple iPhone 14 Plus would be a great choice; the larger screen may enhance your viewing experience and the extended battery life could keep you running longer without a charge. However, if you want to save money and you need features like a headphone jack, expandable storage, and an under-display fingerprint sensor, the Samsung Galaxy S10 might be more suitable. Keep in mind that the iPhone uses iOS and the Galaxy uses Android, which may influence your decision based on your preference for a particular ecosystem. Give Feedback

The Verge

Allison Johnson | October 2022
"If it’s time for an upgrade and you’ve been eyeing the big iPhone, but you’d rather get the best battery life possible than the very latest features, then the iPhone 14 Plus is for you. You get a significant boost in battery life, no matter what iPhone you’re upgrading from. That’s a combination of features that a lot of people will find appealing, and the 14 Plus delivers on its promises."

Tom's Guide

Caitlin McGarry | October 2022
"The Galaxy S10 offers superfast performance and a beautiful display, with a less distracting camera cutout than on the larger, pricier S10 Plus. If all you're looking for is a well-rounded, well-crafted Android flagship that can do it all — including work with a pair of good old-fashioned wired headphones — for a price you can sleep easy at night spending, the Galaxy S10 remains an unbeatable proposition."
