It is the representative of a series of smartphones whose only popularity is comparable to Apple’s iPhone. The new Galaxy has almost by surprise, in the maelstrom of releases that has led the MWC, rather than in a separate company event as with the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4. Some of its major proposals to conquer the market are found in their new advanced features like fingerprint reader, in improving the camera or its higher self. We have decided to place face to face the Samsung S5 Galaxy with the Samsung S4 Galaxy to view the progress of the star of the mobile company.
The basic design concept of the two terminals is virtually unchanged. Both use the same polycarbonate material for its structure and practically repeat the same screen size in both models (5 inches on the 5.1-inch Galaxy S4 and S5 in the Galaxy). But then some differences that can generate a different experience between the two phones are appreciated.
The most important is undoubtedly the inclusion of a case in imitation leather in the S5 Galaxy with a grainy picture that takes its idea of the brilliance of diamonds. This is a different approach that may like more or less. The other point that has been promoted is color. The Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched during the year different configurations with various colors but the Galaxy S5 insists this commitment customization from the beginning, with the colors blue, gold, black and white.
The Galaxy S4 reaches 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm while the Galaxy S5 stands at 142.0 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm. Where if you notice a little increase screen size is weight, which amounts to 145 grams in the latest release but remains at a very manageable figures. What it means is a big breakthrough with IP67 certification which has the Samsung Galaxy S5, allowing us to immerse the phone in water but run the risk of ending up with a piece of junk hands. As for the screen, the two panels use Super AMOLED technology and have a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, so that just will notice difference between them.
If the rear camera Samsung Galaxy S4 was already the best in the market with a resolution of 13 megapixels and several advanced features, Samsung Galaxy Camera S5 is even better with a 16 megapixel sensor. Either way, the photographs have achieved a remarkable quality. At these levels, probably only notice the difference the most experienced users on these issues. Where did that you will notice the difference right away is the inclusion in the Galaxy S5 a very fast autofocus just 0.3 seconds. This feature will allow us to take pictures very quickly and not lose our favorite moments.
And here comes another one of the great arguments of the Samsung Galaxy S5 to dazzle the market. Its rear camera is capable of recording video with UHD resolution (commonly known as 4K). Sure to enjoy this powerful capability we get hold of a TV or monitor with this resolution, but can save a legacy of our life with exceptional quality. Additionally, this camera capability also allows us to perform very beautiful effects as slow motion scenes. Moreover, the front camera has remained largely unchanged in the two models, and are missing that Samsung has not advanced at this point to allow autofotos perform quality.
Interestingly, one of the fields in which there has been a gap between the two models is in the aspect of internal storage. Both models feature configurations of 16 GB and 32 GB, and as in the case of the Galaxy S4 are likely to see over the coming months a special version of 64 GB. Where if there is a major difference is in the processor as the Samsung S4 Galaxy Series betting a chip quad-core 1.9 GHz and S5 Galaxy come with quad-core processor (there are no jump to eight-core) with 2.5 GHz per core power. In two cases RAM reaches 2 GB.
As expected, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 comes standard with the Android 4.4 operating system KitKat. Though currently users with Samsung Galaxy S4 have the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version, it looks like it will be updated in the coming weeks this latest version, so in this respect we speak of a tie. But it is in the appearance of apps and the advanced features where we find the greatest differences. This is where most Korean Company has insisted to enhance the capabilities of its Samsung Galaxy S5.
Another aspect that has worked is developing its S Health application to stay in shape. It seems that 2014 will be the year of sport and healthy living, and the company wanted to promote this platform much exercise and measure our fitness with additions such as a sensor of cardiac activity. This application also improves integration with Samsung new Smart Gear and especially with its Samsung Smart Gear Fit bracelet watches. Finally, we would also highlight a thought for children so the little ones can safely use this phone.
