Compare Samsung Galaxy S IV and iPhone 5
iphone 5 vs galaxy s4
Let us admit to each other that the market sorts zapolonennom smartphone manufacturers, the cream are basically only two companies – Samsung and Apple. Perhaps in some of these parallel universes and two producers would be able to co-exist together, but our reality is nothing but fights, advertising, printing, “trolling” and lawsuits from them will not wait. Will the new flagship of Samsung Galaxy S IV undermine the current market position of the King – iPhone 5? Or a device that was released six months ago will survive hit South Korean giant? Let’s do a comparison.
Flagships based on the Android operating system continues to grow in size. Dictates the trend. Dictate the rules of the market and the buyers themselves. Apple also had to make a sacrifice and increase the size of the screen, but at the moment iPhone 5 is the only leader with a screen size of 4 inches.
What do you think: “The more, the better” and prefer to stick to the views of “small but powerful”? Whatever it was, Galaxy S IV in all aspects to get more than the iPhone 5. On the other hand, Android-smartphones have become so very well, great. iPhone wins in this regard due to the fact that its just more comfortable in the hand. But before you make the final choice, it is better to hold the device in both hands.
Despite all of the internal components (of which you can read below), which are available for Galaxy S IV, it is difficult at first sight to name premiumnyh device. Just because it’s made of the same plastic, of which the Galaxy S III. In turn, the iPhone 5 is made in anodized aluminum.
Despite this, Galaxy S III shows that many millions of customers have expressed love for high-end device even though it’s made of plastic. But if the quality of the material is more important, or rather even his premiumnyh, in this respect, on the background of the “cheap plastic» S IV advantageous to look iPhone 5 or the same all-aluminum HTC One.
If you need a very light phone – your choice of iPhone 5. Despite the fact that the Galaxy S IV get a little easier (at 3 grams, laughter and only) than the Galaxy S III, it is still difficult flagship Apple.
But here be noted that due to the size S IV also offers a larger screen.
In addition to one additional (diagonal) inch screen Galaxy S IV also gives more than a million extra pixels. Can you see the big difference between the screens with 441 ppi pixel density and 326 ppi. Probably not. But again, let’s say that the market dictates the rules, and we will not be surprised that the manufacturers of these devices do not stop at the possibility of further increasing the pixels in future updates. Even though, if you can see the difference between these screens.
If we put aside the question of pixels, the large display size S IV brings it closer to the DC link between smartphones and tablets – to “fabletam.” In fact, with the flagship of Samsung can easily opt out of plates ranging in size from 7 to 8 inches. But from the 4-inch display iPhone they have no say. He is much further from the 7.9-inch display iPad Mini.
On paper, and in both versions of the benchmarks Galaxy S IV can easily beat the iPhone 5 to test the performance of the processor. But in the field differences may not seem quite so and obvious. Are there many applications literally squeezed the last juice out of iPhone 4S on the chip A5? And from the iPhone 5 on the chip A6? Apple is working on the scheme – the coherence hardware and software – so to argue that the steeper “incarcerated” or “many cores at a high frequency,” we will not.
Random access memory
Random access memory
In this category, unconditionally winning Galaxy S IV. Just because 2 GB of memory is always better than 1 GB of memory.
Despite the fact that the maximum amount of memory offered in Galaxy S IV is 64 GB, if desired, it can still increase by the same amount, with support for memory cards microSD.
In all regions where there is support for LTE 4G networks, both phones may work for them. In addition, Samsung plans to sell two different models of Galaxy S IV, one of which supports HSPA + (fast, but not as fast as LTE). iPhone in turn, also offers support for HSPA +, if the region where the device is sold, there is no support for LTE.
Another category in which Samsung Galaxy S IV looks on paper more presentable. But to take the battery capacity as an absolute indicator of the battery of the device – is silly. Especially in the case of S IV, with its large and voracious (and increasing) display with a million extra pixels. Do not forget that the processor also loves to eat. Especially eight-Exynos 5 Octa.
Apple promises eight hours of iPhone 5 talk time or Internet browsing. Make final conclusions about the Galaxy S IV in any event early. Have to wait for reviews of the owners directly.
Standard for high-end smartphones in 2013 model is the presence of the main 13-megapixel camera. Perhaps Apple will succumb to this trend and its new iPhone 5S also receive such a sensor, but at the moment, “sweat” has an 8-megapixel camera iPhone 5 model 2012.
It should also be noted that Samsung has made a big emphasis in the camera software Galaxy S IV. There are features such as Dual Camera (can simultaneously take pictures and shoot video from both cameras), Drama Shot (mode rapid-shooting frame rate, which can then be combined into a GIF), and Sound & Shot (can record for each picture 9 – momentary audio messages).
Samsung Galaxy S IV is running the latest version of the operating system Android 4.2.2 Jellybean, and therefore offers support services such like Play Store, Gmail, and Google Maps. But the most important achievement of the company is that it is trying to differentiate its own software on their Android-fellows. And some of the features of this software really sounds promising. S Translate allows you to communicate with people in a foreign language on the fly (software integrates with other applications, such as email, SMS and so on). S Voice (the answer to the Samsung Siri from Apple) have improved and now he can really benefit by offering a new mode S Voice Drive.
But the value of other new features are already starting to cause problems. Audio recording for a photo, scrolling web pages and email via face detection, navigation of images without touching the screen, while keeping it at a distance of a few millimeters … You see, between “invention” of something, and the concept of “push into the various shots and more “There is a difference. So in this case, Samsung soon went on the second occasion.
In turn, Apple «simplicity” this is like a religion. She is trying to show it in its iOS and iPhone. But it is here and its major drawback. While Android and Samsung in particular are trying to develop as quickly as possible, iOS in the global sense remains the same as we saw in 2007, when it was announced the first iPhone.
Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages. On the part of Samsung, the company is trying to overcome Apple in her own category, offering some very important features originally on the device, which in the case of Apple – «just buy.” But in addition to important functions is completely useless and that ultimately are just garbage, and so is in excess in the same Play Store. Looking at the same Apple, its approach may seem to some super minimalist: stale, primitive, childish.
Perhaps one of these two philosophies in the end is “more correct.” But to solve this we offer is yourself.
If you are closer to the approach of the Samsung, you can see what has changed in the Galaxy S IV in comparison with the Galaxy S III.
