Apple iPhone 5S vs Samsung Galaxy S4

Last week, the world of Smartphone was marked by the arrival of the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C from Apple. If you have a small way up the latest information about this, you should definitely have an idea in mind of features as well as new what do these smartphones compared to their big brothers. We have presented the information needed to make a face to face with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple iPhone 5S.


At first glance, one can immediately see that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is greater than the iPhone 5S, which measures 137x70x7.9mm for a total weight of 112 grams, while the Galaxy S4 weighs 130 grams. However, although the Galaxy S4 is greater than the iPhone 5S, Galaxy S4 is much more comfortable. Otherwise, Apple has always kept a very good aesthetics of the new iPhone, but here it is rather matter of taste.


If the Galaxy S4 has a larger screen, it also has a higher resolution display quality compared to the screen of the iPhone 5S. Indeed, the Super AMOLED screen 5-inch Samsung Galaxy S4 offers a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a pixel density of 441 ppi, while the iPhone 5S is equipped with a screen 4 inches with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels.

iPhone 5S offers internal storage ranging from 16 GB to 128 GB which is not expandable

On this point, I much prefer the Samsung Galaxy S4, because it will be more comfortable to surf the internet, watch video or play on a 5-inch screen Full HD on a 4 inch screen.

Internal Storage

The iPhone 5S offers internal storage ranging from 16 GB to 128 GB which is not expandable. For its part, the Galaxy S4 offers an internal memory of 16 GB up to 64 GB Everything can be expandable via a memory card up to 64GB.


It is true that the iPhone 5S is ahead of the Galaxy S4 on the processor. Indeed, if the clock is not yet known, it is known that the iPhone 5S runs SoC M7 which has the particularity to be 64 bits. Furthermore, this architecture allows for better management of battery life thanks to the low power core that is perfectly synchronized with the accelerometer, gyroscope and other sensors of the smartphone so that it can recognize the positions its user. For its part, the Galaxy S4 runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, which is clocked at 1.9 GHz. However, there is a version of the Galaxy S4 Snapdragon that runs 800.


Regarding software, TouchWiz overlay Samsung Galaxy S4 is responsible for several new features that slow down from time to time the user interface, but are for the most part, very helpful. For its part, the iPhone 5S runs on the new Apple iOS7 which has the particularity to be very fluid system. If the iPhone interface is very simple and fun to watch, that Android is still ahead on its customization. Moreover, although it takes some getting used to at first, it is always easy to navigate the Samsung TouchWiz overlay.

Samsung Galaxy S4 is greater than the iPhone 5S


It is still too early to judge the camera of the iPhone 5S since no test has yet been done about it. We just know that it uses the same technology as the HTC UltraPixel One, but with a higher resolution 8 MP, pushing the pixel to 1.2 microns to 2 microns against the HTC One. For its part, the camera is a digital camera of the Samsung “standard” which uses a resolution of 13 MP. We certainly know more about this when tests will be conducted.


Finally, if a lot of people say it has no great significance, being able to quickly replace the battery presents itself as a real asset for smartphones of the moment. In any case, if the iPhone 5S does not always allow users to access the battery, Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that still provide the possibility of its flagship smartphones.

Again, I prefer the Galaxy S4, because after some time the batteries hold less charge, so that if you want to keep your smartphone for a while, it is best that you can change the battery when the latter struggling to keep the charges.
