iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S4 Video Comparison


Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone (or officially called the Galaxy S 4) at a media event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

It comes packed with tons of features such as 4.99 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 441 ppi, 13-megapixel back facing camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera, powered by the 1.6GHz/1.2GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor or 1.9GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor depending on the region, replaceable battery and lots more. 

Folks at PhoneArea who were at yesterday’s event got a chance to go hands-on with the device and have published a comparison video between Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple’s iPhone 5. The video compares the design and the display of the two devices and showcases some of the new software features of the Galaxy S4.

I’m looking for a more detailed comparison video between the two heavy weights. I’ll post it here as soon as I find one.

    I don’t see any practical use of ‘air gestures’ if you have to tap open a gallery.

    • genXhippie

      Well, perhaps others will.

      • bon jovi

        others will for what? the screen is right in front of your face, you may as well touch it.

        • NoClipMode

          “Air gestures” is the touch screen equivalent of “mouse over”.

          Meaning when you place your mouse cursor over something, and something happens (a link changes colour, text appears, new menu’s appear… etc) then you can now do this with air gestures. It’s a big thing for touch screen tech.

          So yes, it’s very useful and opens up a lot of possibilities that simply were not possible on touch screens until now.

    You cant compare iphone 5 to s4 because the iphone 5 is one year old. When the iphone 5s comes out then you can compare. Your move apple

    • Noneya

      You can’t compare the iPhone 5S to the GS4. The GS4 will be a few months old. The iPhone 5 release date was September 2012. 6 months ago not a year. When it comes to tech a few months is all you need to out perform the previous tech. GS4 will be out before the iPhone 5S and it will the best phone until then and probably after that.

      • genXhippie

        If I recall correctly, the iP5 was intially available/release in a selected few countries on Sept 21, 2012. So basically, that constitutes an October release imo. So, it’s closer five months in my eyes.

    • Damian W

      one year?? seriously? They started to sell it in October.

    • http://rounak.me/ Rounak Jain

      You could say the same thing when there are iPhone 5S vs Galaxy S4 videos :)

      • bon jovi

        well, as long as its released within the same year, it won’t be the same thing.

    • genXhippie

      Ip5 is actually just over five months old. it was scarily available in only a few selected countries on September 21, 2012, if I am not mistaken.

  • Red fruit bite

    Iphone wins, ……. ONLY if its jailbreak otherwise they both the same for me

  • razielpr

    No matter if apple release the iPhone 10 it will still be a year old behind the gs4.

    • shane blyth

      now that comment really makes sense

  • Britjoe

    it kinda makes me laugh that the samsung fans hang out on this forum and like to comment on this stuff, I actually think the samsung phones are great pieces of hardware, just find android os awkward for me.

    • mkimid

      Samsung have a great hardware, but, software is too behind now. Maybe, they need more time to catch up Apple’s solution.

      • James

        Software the iOS has been the same since iPhone 1 unlike iPhones I can put custom roms on a galaxy phone and do as much tweaks as I want unlike apple who will make it pretty much impossible to jailbreak when Samsung has and will be easy to root

        • Rayne

          Pretty much impossible to jail beak?? It takes 2 minutes…

    • dominiek leclercq

      You never heard of google search results right?
      I for one started with iPhones but ditched them when the 4 came out. Each ecosystem has it’s purpose. Compare it with Apple = Playmobil whereas Android = LEGO.

      • dankvwguy

        dont you ever compare android to legos…..
