The holiday season is always the best time to buy something special for you or a loved one. With the release of the two most awaited smart phones, there’s no doubt that you are seriously thinking about getting one. Hence, you are probably in a quandary as to which one to go for. Should you go for the Galaxy S4 or the Apple iphone 5s?
John V. takes a look at all the “dreamy specs” of both the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5. This should help you decide.
Design: Go Galactic Or Iconic?
John V. starts off his comparative review with the Design of both smart phones.
“… the iPhone 5s employs the same design as its predecessor … so it has this iconic iPhone look. If you think about the high end flagship smart phone, it’s the iPhone 5s that exudes all the qualities that you would want to find in the device.”
Here are some facts on the Design:
|IPhone 5s||7.6mm, aluminium rear|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||7.7mm, plastic rear|
A More Pleasing Design
But that’s just the start. Let’s take a look at what John V. has to say about the Display of each phone
“They have their pleasing elements but overall we going to give it to the Galaxy S4 just because of the larger display, high resolution, and then of course, that showroom wow-factor with its saturated colors.”
Here are some facts on the Display:
|IPhone 5s||4.0 inches|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||5.0 inches|
|IPhone 5s||640 x1136 pixels|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||1080 x 1920 pixels|
|IPhone 5s||326 ppi|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||441 ppi|
|IPhone 5s||IPS LCD|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||Super AMOLED|
|IPhone 5s||Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Oleophobic coating|
|Samsung Galaxy S4||Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Scratch-resistant glass|
Choosing The Better Camera
The camera on the Galaxy S4 is described as “beefier” than that of the camera on the iPhone 5s.
“On the Galaxy S4, it’s a beefier 13 megapixels auto focus camera with an LED flash and it features also 1080p high definition video recording quality an F2.2 lens and a back-illuminated sensor.”
Nothing Beats A Cooler Interface
In terms of interface, iPhone gets thumbs up.
“… we’re gonna give the iPhone 5s for having the more visually pleasing user-interface … there’s just a lot more cool animations and visual effects that give a lot of eye candy to the new iOS7 experience.”
Personally, that shouldn’t be surprising. After all, Apple’s sister company is Pixar Animation Studios.
