Phone Comparisons: Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24

In this article, we’ll be comparing the Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24. The Galaxy S24 is Samsung’s brand-new compact high-end offering. It’s not the most powerful smartphone in the series, but the same goes for the iPhone 15 Pro. Still, both devices are at the very top of the food chain, and considering their sizes and place in their respective lineups, comparing them makes all the sense in the world.

They’re both not only rather compact but are also quite powerful. They’re aimed at people who don’t want to navigate huge smartphones. People who want a phone that is one-hand friendly, at least to a degree. Having said that, we’ll first list their specifications, and will then move to compare their designs, displays, performance, battery life, cameras, and audio performance. So, let’s get started, shall we?

The iPhone 15 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S24 do have a similar shape all around. They have rounded corners, along with rounded display corners, and flat sides. Sides on both smartphones do curve a bit towards the edges, though, just to give you a more pleasant feeling when holding them. In fact, both smartphones are very comfortable to hold, that’s for sure. They are both quite slippery, though.

It’s not exactly a surprise they’re slippery considering they’re made out of metal and glass. The iPhone 15 Pro utilizes titanium for its frame, while the Galaxy S24 uses aluminum. The iPhone 15 Pro has a pill-shaped cutout on the front, along with uniform bezels. The Galaxy S24 also has uniform bezels, which are very thin, but it has a much smaller cutout thanks to its single camera on the front.

There’s a flat display on the front side of both phones, and the backs are predominantly flat on both phones. The iPhone 15 Pro’s physical buttons are spaced out across the left and right sides, while all of the Galaxy S24’s are located on the right side. The iPhone 15 Pro has a much different-looking camera island on the back. All of its cameras are part of a single camera island, which is located in the top-left corner. The Galaxy S24 also has three cameras on the back, though each of them is its own island, in a way.

The two devices are about the same size, though the iPhone 15 Pro is a bit thicker. It is also a bit heavier, for about 20 grams. Both devices do offer an IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. Both smartphones feel great to hold and use, they’re much more comfortable to use than they may look. They’re also great for those of you who tend to use your phones with one hand. Using a case is still recommended, though.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24: Display

The iPhone 15 Pro features a 6.1-inch 2556 x 1179 LTPO Super Retina XDR OLED display. That display is flat, and it supports HDR10 content. Dolby Vision support is also included, while the display has an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz. The maximum brightness this display can reach is 2,000 nits. The display aspect ratio is 19.5:9, and the panel is protected by the Ceramic Shield glass.

The Galaxy S24, on the other hand, includes a 6.2-inch fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) Dynamic LTPO AMOLED 2X display. That display is flat, and it supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz (it’s adaptive). HDR10+ content is supported on this panel, while the display has a max brightness of 2,600 nits. The display aspect ratio is 19.5:9, and the display protection Samsung opted for is Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

Both of these displays are great. They both have vivid colors and can get truly bright when they’re needed to. Do note that automatic brightness can go a lot higher than manual brightness. Also, they are very responsive, and the viewing angles are great as well. Both displays also have good display protection, and they are both more than sharp enough, even though the iPhone 15 Pro is technically sharper. There’s not much to complain about here, in all honesty.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24: Performance

The Apple A17 Pro fuels the iPhone 15 Pro. That is Apple’s new 3nm processor, which is coupled with 8GB of RAM and NVMe flash storage. The Galaxy S24 is fueled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy SoC in most markets, while in some markets the Exynos 2400 SoC is used. That is coupled with 8GB of RAM (up to 12GB of RAM in some markets), and UFS 4.0 flash storage. Do note that the base model with 128GB of storage utilizes UFS 3.1 flash storage, not UFS 4.0.

The performance on both smartphones is exactly what you’d expect out of two high-profile flagship-grade phones… it’s great. During regular, day-to-day usage, you won’t get any lag or anything of the sort. They’re very fast to switch between apps, launch apps, and can handle basically any app without a problem. Both phones are great for consuming multimedia, browsing, emailing, and so on.

When it comes to more intensive tasks, both do a very good job. Processing images and video is a breeze, and the same goes for gaming. The Galaxy S24 has a nice vapor chamber on the inside and does a better job with games than its predecessor did. Apple, on the other hand, sorted out some initial heating problems with truly demanding games, and the iPhone 15 Pro does a phenomenal job now. Neither phone gets too hot during gaming, even though they both do get quite warm at times, it all depends on what you’re playing and for how long. Outside of gaming, they both run nicely without added heat.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24: Battery

There is a 3,274mAh battery included inside the iPhone 15 Pro. The Galaxy S24, on the flip side, has a 4,000mAh battery. Apple’s iPhones usually have smaller batteries, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have worse battery life. In fact, they are on the same playing field in terms of battery life, it all depends on what you’re doing on the devices, to be quite honest. Neither is phenomenal, but they both do decently well.

Getting over 6 hours of screen-on-time from both smartphones is plausible. The iPhone 15 Pro managed to cross the 7-hour screen-on-time mark at times, but that’s not a frequent occurrence. Both smartphones could offer better battery life, but the battery life is not bad, per se. Neither can compete with the likes of the ASUS ZenFone 10, though, for example. That is also a compact smartphone, and yet it offers outstanding battery life.

If you do run out of battery juice ahead of time, do note that the iPhone 15 Pro supports 20W wired, 15W MagSafe and Qi2 wireless, and 7.5W Qi wireless charging. It also offers 4.5W reverse wired charging. The Galaxy S24 supports 25W wired, 15W wireless, and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. Neither smartphone includes a charger in the retail box, though. You’ll need to get it separately.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S24: Cameras

When it comes to cameras, both devices include three of them on the back. A 48-megapixel main camera sits on the back of the iPhone 15 Pro. It is backed by a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera (120-degree FoV), and a 12-megapixel telephoto unit (3x optical zoom). A 50-megapixel main camera is included on the back of the Galaxy S24. A 12-megapixel ultrawide camera (120-degree FoV) also sits on the back, as does a 10-megapixel telephoto unit (3x optical zoom).

This time around, Samsung’s compact smartphone has a better grasp of color output in its images. They’re no longer as saturated as they were in the past. The iPhone 15 Pro does provide warmer color tones in its images, though. Both devices do a very good job during the day, with plenty of detail, and good HDR performance. During the night, they do obtain plenty of detail too, and both are trying to keep images a bit darker to preserve a rather realistic look. The Galaxy S23 tended to brighten up such shots quite a bit, that’s not the case with the Galaxy S24. It’s an improvement, in our opinion.

Ultrawide cameras do a good job of keeping up with the color science, but they’re not perfect in that regard. Also, the quality dip is noticeable when compared to the main shooters. Telephoto cameras do a good job, though you’ll also notice a difference in quality compared to main shooters, especially in low light. Don’t expect them to do a great job at higher zoom ranges either.


A set of stereo speakers is included on both of these smartphones. Those speakers sound good on both ends, but the ones on the Galaxy S24 are a bit louder. Both sets of speakers do a good job at higher volume ranges, there’s no noticeable distortion to speak of.

You will not find an audio jack on either one of these two smartphones. You can always utilize their Type-C ports for wired audio connections, though. Alternatively, there’s Bluetooth 5.3 support on both smartphones.
