Resolution of base satelite imagery in AGOL compared to GE

Does anyone know how the sat imagery offered in AGOL compares generally to GE? I realize that there's only a few sat imagery companies out there so much of the source data is the same, however, for the area of the world that I am working in along the Thailand-Myanmar border, GE sat imagery appears to be much higher resolution than what's offered in AGOL.

 

I am just wondering about this as one of the reasons my organization purchased a subscription to AGOL is for our shelter team to be able to digitize refugee camp features inside AGOL; however, to my chagrin, I discovered that resolution is a lot better in GE and user can add points and polygons just as offered in AGOL. So what's the added value of AGOL for this type of work?

 

Thanks,

Lyndy
