Processing Power

Under the hood, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, a massive upgrade from its predecessor. In contrast, the iPhone 15 Pro Max sports the cutting-edge A17 Pro SoC, manufactured on a 3-nanometer process, promising increased power and energy efficiency. Apple's chipset introduces a pro-class GPU, offering a significant boost in performance and enabling console-level gaming for the first time on an iPhone.

In collaboration with Instagram, it brings HDR photos directly within the app. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro Max introduces a new 5x telephoto lens, offering users the flexibility to capture detailed close-ups. Apple claims its camera system is equivalent to seven pro lenses, with the ability to switch between three different focal lengths.

Performance and Connectivity

Samsung's OneUI 6.0 based on Android 14 powers the Galaxy S24 Ultra, providing a user-friendly interface. In contrast, the iPhone 15 Pro Max showcases Apple's A17 Pro chipset, bringing improvements in CPU speed, GPU performance, and the Neural Engine. Notably, the iPhone adopts USB Type-C in compliance with EU regulations, offering data transfer speeds up to 10 gigabits per second, and incorporates the 2nd Generation Ultra-Wide Band chip along with Wi-Fi 6E.
