One of the most popular and simple Headless CMS. It runs as a web service, so you have only to register an account to create a project. Contentful is very easy to use, stable and has a free version. In addition, there are lots of plugins and a package for working with this CMS.
But there are some shortcomings. First of all, it's a limitation of entities (models) and fields in the model. Also, like many Headless CMS services, the size of uploaded files is limited.
Despite the great popularity of Contentful, it could be a challenge to create even a small project due to limitations. Therefore, we recommend using it only for very simple projects.
Storyblok is also a web service, so you only need to register an account to create a project. It is more difficult to use than Contentful, but has more room for customization. In addition to the main entities, here it's possible to make auxiliary ones to use as components of the main entities. Storyblok allows grouping entities and content independently.
Also, this CMS has a unique feature. It can include your code on the frontend to see a preview of the content being created, which is important for content managers.
Of course, Storyblok has some flaws. It's not beginner-friendly, so a bit of learning is required to understand its interface. Then, it is only available in the paid version. Storyblok also has restrictions for entities, content, and files, but they are much wider than in Contentful.
Finally, Storyblok is a good CMS if you have fairly complex data structures in your project and want to fine-tune them.
