Display

As mentioned, both of the phones in our comparison offer massive screen sizes. Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max features a 6.7-inch display—even bigger than last year’s 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max—and the largest amount of screen space on an iPhone to date. But the device is still outdone on display size by Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra, which boasts a mind-blowing 6.9 inches of display space. Both phones can get away with having that much display due to their minimal bezels—especially on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, which doesn’t have a camera cutout like the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

As for the displays themselves, both are sure to be stunners thanks to the vibrant OLED screen technology used on both phones, as well as very high resolution in both cases--511 pixels per inch (ppi) for the Galaxy S20 Ultra and 458 ppi for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The biggest difference that users may notice between the two displays is that the Galaxy S20 Ultra includes a 120hz refresh rate for smoother display motion. The feature is most obvious when playing games, but it also provides a smoother experience overall, such as when scrolling web pages. Despite rumors that the iPhone 12 Pro Max was going to move up to a 120hz refresh rate, Apple ended up sticking with the usual 60hz refresh rate for the device.
