At Apple’s recent media event at the Town Hall in Cupertino the tech giant’s new flagship device the iPhone 5s was revealed. As expected the iPhone 5s specifications are better than the outgoing iPhone 5. Let us see how the Galaxy S4 specifications compare to Apple’s latest device.
The iPhone 5s uses the A7 micro processor that is 64 bit capable, thus the iOS 7 on the iPhone 5s is also a 64 bit version – Apple claims this combination leads to super speed and graphics. The Samsung Galaxy uses a Snapdragon 600 processor with 2 GB or RAM and it is unlikely this combination will be helped much by a 64 bit operating system. The iPhone 5s is definitely a good looking phone and it feel expensive to hold. The Galaxy S4 on the other hand is a bit heavier, made of plastic and looks too much like the Galaxy S3. When it comes to screens – the Galaxy S4’s 5 inch full HD, 1920 by 1080 with 441 ppi screen really makes the iPhone 5s’s 4 inch “Retina”, 1136 by 640 resolution and 326 ppi seem shoddy. The iPhone 5s uses an 8MP camera while the Galaxy S4 has a 13 MP shooter.
