Samsung’s new lineup of Galaxy S10 phones have given Android users a lot more to think about.
The Galaxy S10 phones, which start rolling out on March 8th, come with a whole slew of top-of-the-line features that put it in the running for anyone who’s considering buying a new Android device. The Galaxy S10 comes with four cameras, an in-display fingerprint unlock, reverse wireless charging, and even a traditional headphone jack.
But before you go out and purchase the newest Galaxy S phone, you may want to consider whether it’s the best phone to suit your smartphone needs. Google released its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in October, and the device has been praised for its top-of-the-line camera, which includes two camera lenses for selfies.
Here’s how the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Google Pixel 3 stack up:
Let’s start with the size of the device. The Pixel 3 is 2.7 wide inches by 5.7 inches tall, with a screen that measures 5.5 inches diagonally.
The Galaxy S10 is a slightly bigger device — it measures 2.8 inches wide by 5.9 inches tall. However, the S10 has an edge-to-edge display and thinner bezels (the space between the screen and the frame) at the top and bottom, giving the phone a larger screen at 6.1 inches measured diagonally.
The Pixel 3 has a fingerprint sensor to unlock your phone that’s located on the back — the same place as on older Samsung Galaxy S phones This design makes it easy to unlock your phone without having to adjust your natural hold.
On the Galaxy S10, the fingerprint sensor is located at the bottom of the screen, like on older iPhones. But unlike those older devices, the Galaxy S10 hides the fingerprint sensor under the screen, so Samsung hasn’t sacrificed any screen space.
The Pixel is regarded as having one of the best cameras of any smartphone out there. In addition to the one fantastic rear camera, the Pixel 3 has two front-facing lenses, including a wide-angle lens that can take ultra-wide selfies.
