Samsung and Apple, two giants in the mobile telephony sector and staunch rivals that tend to see faces in court day in, day out. The competition between these two companies exceeds all limits and there are clashes between supporters of each other. Each company has its workhorse, Apple is the iPhone 5S and the newly released Samsung Galaxy Samsung S5. Both are high-end smartphones, but they represent different concepts, but both have some similarities. It is a difficult fight, but here we go. We compare the Samsung Galaxy S5 with the iPhone 5S.
We could fill pages talking about whether to have a large screen or a more compact. The Samsung Galaxy S5 represents the first concept with a Super AMOLED panel 5.1 inch full HD resolution, so its density reaches no less than 432 dots per inch. Having a large screen smartphone may be a bit more uncomfortable handle, but in this case is more or less acceptable limit. Using it with one hand is difficult, but not impossible. How good of a panel of these features is that everything looks better, more spacious feel, and content is clearly.
Meanwhile Apple remains committed to 4 inches are the equivalent functionality, so its iPhone 5S is the only high-end market to maintain this compact size. The panel is an IPS LCD with 1136 x 640 pixel resolution, resulting in 326 dots per inch, which Apple calls Retina resolution and in this case loses to its opponent. The screen of the iPhone 5S allows us to operate the terminal with one hand smoothly and carry in your pocket without noticing. However, we believe that the midpoint is virtue, neither would happen if they increased to 4.5 inches diagonal (as indeed it is rumored they will do with the iPhone 6).
The design is a subjective point, but here we must recognize that Apple does things really well. The apple company has a reputation in relation to the appearance of their products, and the iPhone 5S is a clear example. The terminal has a sleek look, with clean lines and is made of aluminum, so it is also resistant. The chassis is, as mentioned, much more compact, and thickness of 7.6 mm makes it very stylish and lightweight. However Samsung is betting on a line design with rounded lines and removable plastic back cover. This design offers the advantage of allowing us to remove the battery, but not as solid. The back cover has a texture that improves grip points and also highlights its water resistance, certified to IP67.
Although the iPhone 5S continues to maintain a 8-megapixel sensor, Apple has improved by expanding the pixels, more light and a lens, together with the BSI system achieves very good results in low light conditions. One of its salient features is the LED duo tone, getting more natural light portraits by mixing a white LED with another in a yellowish flash. The lens is covered with sapphire crystal for protection, plus an infrared filter to prevent chromatic aberration. Also it records videos in FullHD 1080 p at 30 FPS and HD720p at 120 fps, so you can create videos in slow motion, as well as having a stabilizer to avoid tremors. Its front camera has 1.2 megapixel resolutions.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 16 megapixel camera with the new ISOCELL system that gets more light harness avoiding the appearance of noise through a system of cells that separates each pixel. Among its advantages is the ultra-fast 0.3 seconds approach, Rich Tone HDR mode and selective approach that allows us to vary the focus after the photo shot. It also has video stabilizer and raises the bar allowing the registration of images in 4K at 30 fps. Same as iPhone 5S, can also make videos in slow motion at 120 fps and 60 fps HD720p quality in FullHD. The front camera has 2 megapixels.
The media profile of the iPhone 5S is somewhat limited in terms of playback formats, is that Apple is not very fond of standardization. There are apps that let you play more file types, such as VLC Media Player, but native support is not compatible with some common video formats such as AVI. The Samsung Galaxy S5 instead is an Android, a system which stands out for its compatibility with other systems, so there will be no problem to play videos, music, photos or documents common.
Both models have very fast processors and pointers. In the case of Samsung Galaxy S5 is a 801 Snapdragon Krait 400 has four cores and runs at 2.5 Ghz frequency, further supported by 2 GB of RAM. 5S The iPhone has a chip Apple dual-core A7 64-bit architecture, graphic quad-core chip and 1GB of RAM.’s first performance tests show that both are at a similar level, but the 64-bit system the iPhone 5S gets you ahead.
As to the internal memory, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available in two options of 16 or 32 Gb, but also allows additional expansion to 128 Gb if we use MicroSD cards. The iPhone 5S not allow the extension and is available in three editions of 16, 32 or 64 Gb
