Samsung Galaxy S10 versus Pixel 3, iPhone XS spec comparison


The new Samsung Galaxy S10 has a lot going for it and will likely be one of the most popular Android devices of 2019. But while Samsung’s new phone has a lot to offer, Google and Apple have great devices as well in their lineups which could still be appealing options for those who don’t want to buy into Samsung’s vision of what a high-end smartphone should be.

In this spec comparison, we’re pitting the Galaxy S10 against the Pixel 3 from Google and the Apple iPhone Xs. The cheapest here is the Pixel 3 since it sells for $799. While that’s just a bit more than the Samsung Galaxy S10e is going for, Google’s Pixel 3 has all the same features as the larger Pixel 3 XL, save for its display and battery capacity. The iPhone XS has a base price of $999 which is $100 more than the Samsung Galaxy S10’s $899 starting price.

Take a look at the spec table below to see how these three phones stack up. Are you buying the Samsung Galaxy S10 this year or will you be picking up another device from Google or Apple?
