There's no shortfall on display space for either of the phones in our comparison, but Samsung's Galaxy S20 Plus has the slight edge on size with its 6.7-inch screen. Apple's iPhone 11 Pro Max features a 3-percent smaller, 6.5-inch display. Both smartphones offer OLED technology for their huge displays, so you can expect either device to offer vibrant and colorful viewing. On resolution, though, the Galaxy S20 Plus does have more to offer with 511 pixels per inch (ppi) compared to the 458 ppi resolution for the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

A more noticeable difference with the screen on the Galaxy S20 Plus is the inclusion of a 120hz refresh rate for smoother display motion. The feature is most obvious when playing games on the device, but it does provide a better experience for other uses such as scrolling through web pages or apps. That compares to the less-smooth, 60hz refresh rate for the display on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

In addition, the Galaxy S20 Plus also offers a true edge-to-edge display design as a result of its minimal camera cutout--compared to the large notch at the top of the screen on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
