iPhone 12 vs Samsung S20 Comparison

iPhone 12 vs Samsung S20: which one has the better screen?

The iPhone 12 and the Samsung S20 are direct competitors, one on iOS and the other on Android. Both smartphones have AMOLED screens, the best display technology at the time of writing. But there are still differences between the two screens: the Samsung S20's screen is larger, at 6.2 inches, compared to the iPhone 12's 6.1. And that's not all, the S20 also has a better resolution, with 1440 x 3200 pixels against 1170 x 2532 pixels for the iPhone 12.

To go into a bit more detail, the Samsung S20 is HDR compatible, while the iPhone 12's screen has Dolby Vision. What's the difference? Well, both do have perfectly rendered colours and deep blacks. So it's very difficult to give one technology the edge over the other. If we had to choose, we would still go for Dolby Vision, since the iPhone 12 can additionally capture footage in Dolby Vision, which is a rare feat.
