Apple’s limitless success after the release of iPhone 5 made people wonder that this is the ultimate tech company that is going to rule the market by suppressing all of its competitors. But Samsung never gave up, rather it was planing to hit the market with its best shot and yes it truly proved to be the best one. Samsung Galaxy S IV is finally out, with some ever-new features that will be the most prominent factor to attract the Apple lovers. So let’s look at iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S4!
Samsung Galaxy S4 Vs iPhone 5
Although the actual Apple vs. Samsung war has ended long ago but the cold war is still on and is likely to remain forever because these two best companies are fighting for the same goal and that is to be the best in the tech world. iPhone 4S and Galaxy S III were still fighting for the top spot when Apple released its next iteration of the iPhone and almost overtook the battle. But Samsung made a re-entry and is back again to change the game.
Though the battle is between the two companies but it confuses the customers to decide which one is the best, and therefore, here we bring you the best comparison ever between the two finest smartphones of the time, iPhone 5 vs. Samsung galaxy S IV.
Design And Display
iPhone 5′s design display is quite familiar to us. The iPhone has a 4-inch Retina 640 x 1136 pixel display at 326 PPI(Pixels per inch), whereas the dimensions of the iPhone are 4.9 x 2.3 x 0.3 inches and it weighs only 4 ounces. Also the two-toned back plate is a nice touch too and distinguish it from its predecessors. While when it’s about the newly released Galaxy S IV then we see, it has a better display which includes a 5 inch display with a ppi of 441! Although in appearance, Samsung Galaxy S4 looks similar to S3 but actually it is much thinner and also 0.08 inches taller than Galaxy S3. It weighs 4.6 ounces which is 0.9 ounces lighter compared to Galaxy S3. So here we can see it clearly that Samsung has moved a step on than Apple and has proved its display to be better.
Now here comes the soul of your smartphone that is the operating system, which modifies the feature that your phone has in it. The latest Galaxy arrival S4 uses the latest version of Android (4.2.2; Jelly Bean), while the iPhone 5 uses iOS 6.1.2. iOS is an easier operating system to learn and use, especially for beginners, and the Apple App Store has not gone too beyond in terms of quality and number of apps available but the Google Play store also has amazing features too, and also the Android features have a much more customizable interface for advanced users, which lets you configure your phone exactly how you want it.
Processor And Memory
The processor inside Samsung Galaxy SIV is either 1.9GHz, quad-core Snapdragon Fusion Pro; or proprietary 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 5 Octa. The phone has 2GB of RAM and either 16, 32 or 64GB of storage, plus a MicroSD card slot. Whereas iPhone 5 has 1.2GHz dual-core A6. with 1 GB of RAM memory and 16GB, 32GB, 64GB of storage.
Camera is the most important feature of a smartphone that is sometimes used to decide the whole review of the phone and this is because the companies exclusively focus on the betterment of the camera and the pictures produced by it. Also phones provide more editing options to remove the flaws from the pictures captured by the camera. iPhone 5 has a 1.2 megapixel front-facing and 8 megapixel back-facing camera. More importantly, it’s crazy fast. The camera app on the iPhone 5 is much faster, and when it does open up, the iPhone 5 is a rapid-fire wonder that lets you snap photos nearly as fast as an average guy can tap the screen or push a volume button to take the shot.
On the other hand this time Samsung too has brought a magnificent camera; 13 MP back camera, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. In order to make its camera fully perfect for its users. The Korean company has added two new features into it. The first one allows you to take 100 pictures per four seconds and that is really impressive. Also this time Samsung has given the camera the ability to record a five second sound. Sometimes you need a sound to go with the picture so before taking any picture it will give you the ability to record a small sound that will go with the picture.
Apart from all the above-mentioned features, Samsung galaxy S IV has some special features too. And the most interesting one amongst them is the Smart Pause feature that tracks your eye movement and whenever you are looking at the screen, it will keep a constant “eye” on you. This is due to this particular feature that the phone is called the ‘eye-phone‘. Whenever you remove your eyes from the screen, let’s say while watching a video then the Galaxy S4 will pause the screen. If you turn your eyes back on the screen, then the video will resume. Actually it doesn’t really “look at your eyes”, what it does it uses facial-recognition technology to see where you are looking.
Although we have mentioned all the important features of the two phones but still there are much more to be discovered. So checkout their features and decide which is one the best you want.
