Google Chrome vs Samsung Internet; Samsung phones usually have two browsers, Google Chrome and Samsung Internet, by default. However, there is always debate among users as to which browser is better. Many users of Android mobile phones use Google Chrome as the main browser in their mobile phone. In fact, they prefer Google Chrome to Samsung Internet; But is Google Chrome really the best Android browser?
We all know that Samsung Internet Browser is not as well known as Google Chrome, but all Samsung users will see this browser on their device from day one. To identify a good browser, there are five main factors that we will talk about in this article, and for each factor, we will introduce you to the winning browser so that we can finally reach a good summary.
In this article from Digikala Mag, we will put the Internet under the microscope of Google Chrome and Samsung browsers so that we can identify the top browser and introduce it to you. So if you also like to use a great browser on your Android device, follow us to the end of this fascinating article.
1) Browser speed
The first important and influential factor to identify a good browser is its speed. Although the scores of the criteria in the real world are not always the same, it is better to use them for a closer look. For this section, we have used three criteria, which are:
- JetStream2 for speed measurement
- MotionMark to measure graphic performance
- Speedometer to measure response performance
To get the most accurate results, we run each metric three times in both browsers. The following is an average of the total of 18 test courses we have taken. It is also interesting to note that the higher the numbers, the better the performance of the browser. Now look at the table below carefully.
As you can see, Google Chrome managed to beat Samsung Internet browser by two out of three criteria. Our benchmark in this MotionMark benchmark was that Google Chrome was able to attract our attention with a high difference compared to Samsung Internet. It’s also worth noting that these numbers are slightly different in the real world, but overall Google Chrome won the first factor in this article.
Winner: Google Chrome
2) Availability and synchronization with different platforms
Google Chrome browser is available for download on iOS, Android and Windows, but Samsung Internet browser is only available for Android and can be downloaded. Samsung Internet is also pre-installed on all Samsung devices and is set as the default browser from the beginning. If you have a device from another manufacturer, you can download this browser from the Google Play Store or use the button below.
Another area where Google Chrome beats Samsung Internet is by being synchronized with different platforms. In fact, with Google Chrome, you just need to log in to your Google account to easily access all the platforms that you have logged in with your Google account.
It is interesting to know that if you want to access your bookmarks and favorites stored on your Android device Samsung on your desktop, you still have to use Google Chrome. In fact, you should install the Samsung Internet extension on your Google Chrome desktop! As a result, the winner of the “availability and synchronization with different platforms” factor is again Google Chrome.
Winner: Google Chrome
3) User interface
The third important factor to identify the best Android browser is its user interface. One of the things we love about the Samsung Internet Browser is how it manages its dark mode. Of course, both browsers support dark mode, but Google Chrome does not implement it well and accurately, and in fact does not take this feature seriously.
Interestingly, in many cases where the dark mode is enabled in Google Chrome, some pages are still provided to us in a normal and clear mode, and only the site address bar and the internal settings menu are darkened!
Samsung Internet Browser darkens your screen as much as possible and even makes some elements in selected sites completely black. This will save less battery power for longer browsing, but will also be less harmful to your eyes.
Samsung Internet is more customizable and user-friendly than Google Chrome. This difference can be easily seen in the photo above. Additionally, you can hide your mobile status bar at the top of the screen to make full use of your screen. It is clear that the winner of the “browser interface” section of the Internet is Samsung.
Winner: Samsung Internet
4) Privacy and security of users
Both browsers provide their users with private browsing. However, Google Chrome’s incognito mode has nothing to do with Samsung Internet’s incognito mode.
Samsung Internet offers much more control to its users in this regard. For example, you can enable Secret mode with the password you want so that no one but you can access your private pages in the Samsung Internet browser.
Also, if you secretly download images, videos, and audio files, they will not appear in your gallery like normal downloads, and you can only open them while using the hidden mode. This way, your private downloads will always remain private. Unfortunately, Google Chrome incognito mode does not provide any of these to its users!
The Samsung Internet Browser also has a complete privacy section where you can check which sites have tried to track you. You can also block auto-downloads and receive alerts when logging in to unsafe sites. In this case, Samsung Internet undoubtedly defeated Google Chrome.
Winner: Samsung Internet
5) Special facilities
Both browsers allow you to save your card numbers and details in the online form auto-fill section for faster transactions. Google Chrome, on the other hand, translates web pages better than Samsung Internet. Also, if there is a site that you visit often, you can add it to your home page using Google Chrome and access the page with just a simple click whenever you need to.
Samsung Internet Browser still surpasses Google Chrome in other useful features such as QR scanner and the ability to save web pages as a PDF file. You can also download useful Samsung Internet add-ons such as Amazon Assistant and ad-blockers from the Galaxy Store. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to use Google Chrome extensions on Android.
Winner: Samsung Internet
In this article, by thoroughly examining the two browsers Samsung Internet and Google Chrome, we have found that Samsung Internet has been liked by many users and has many useful features to improve your browsing experience. However, Samsung’s biggest weakness, the lack of non-Android versions, bothers many users and fans.
In fact, Google Chrome does not have a particular problem and has many fans; But it is very clear that Google applies the “if something is not broken, do not fix it” approach to your browser. If syncing a browser across multiple platforms is really important to you, you should probably stay away from Samsung Internet. Of course, if you want the best browser for your Android device, we can not recommend Google Chrome because the winner of this article is the Samsung Internet browser.
