As I normally do when new phones are released, I thought it would be a good idea to compare a few different models to the Galaxy S20 line. But instead of bundling all three models into one post, I wanted to look at the high-end offering from Samsung, Google, and Apple. … [Read more...] about Galaxy S20 Ultra vs. iPhone 11 Pro Max vs. Pixel 4 XL: We compare specs, prices, and features
