One factor making the iPhone 12 vs Galaxy S21 a worthy matchup is the display size of each device--which are nearly identical. The Galaxy S21 has slightly more display space with its 6.2-inch display, compared to the 6.1-inch screen on the iPhone 12. The two phones are also close when it comes to their screen-to-body ratio, which has been estimated at about 87 percent for the Galaxy S21 and 86 percent for the iPhone 12 thanks to the slim borders on both devices.

Both screens rate high on color quality and vividness through the use of OLED display technology, and both are very high-res--though the iPhone 12 wins out with its 2,532 x 1,170 resolution (or 460 pixels per inch) vs the Galaxy S21’s display resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 (or 421 ppi).

The bottom line: either display will look fantastic. But there’s one area where the Galaxy S21 display clearly stands apart, and that is on its refresh rate. Only the Galaxy S21 features a 120hz refresh rate, which enables a smoother display experience—something that’s especially useful for scrolling through a webpage or playing a game. The iPhone 12 cannot match this, with the phone sticking with the usual 60hz refresh rate.
