The mobile phone wars are heating up with the recent release of Samsung’s Galaxy S4. The dominance of the iPhone in the mobile phone market is no secret but Samsung is aiming to gain more of the market share with the release of the Galaxy S4.
In order to gain a greater share of the market the Samsung’s Galaxy 4 offers a plethora of functions that are not available on the iPhone 5. In fact, there are five ways that the S4 is better that the iPhone 5.
Five Features that set the Samsung Galaxy S4 apart from the iPhone 5
The S4 is faster than the iPhone 5. In fact the S4 boasts speeds that are twice the speed of Apple’s iPhone. This higher speed is possible because the S4 has a quad-core processor instead of the dual-core processor of the iPhone 5. The S4 is also faster because it has 2gb of RAM compared to the 1gb of RAM that comes with the iPhone 5.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is also inherently more flexible because it runs on the Androd platform. Android devices are infinitely more open than Apple’s iOS. For instance the S4 has the ability to be used as a remote for certain Samsung televisions.
Larger and sharper screen
The S4 offers a screen that is an inch larger than the iPhone 5. The 5-inch screen allows for easier navigation and greater viewing capabilities. Additionally the S4 has a much sharper screen than the iPhone 5. This means that the Samsung S4 is easier on the eyes and ideal for users that are constantly on their phones.
S4 Camera has higher megapixels and better software
The S4 boasts a 13 megapixel camera while the iPhone 5 is only 8 megapixels. In addition the S4 offers a myriad of software for editing pictures and movies on the phone.
One of the most impressive aspects of the S4 is the removable battery. This allows users to put in a new battery if there is no power supply available. This decreases that possibility of users being stuck without a way to use their phones.
Overall the Samsung Galaxy S4 offers users an experience they cannot get with the iPhone 5. Although the S4 is slightly more expensive than the iPhone 5 it offers more features. In addition, the S4 is available through all major carriers, which makes it more accessible for users that want to stay with their current carriers and just upgrade to the S4.
