Samsung finally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone for 2013 amidst much anticipation from tech enthusiasts the world over. And yes, from the first few glimpses, it sounds real amazing. But will the Galaxy S4 manage to pull the crowds away from the Google Nexus 4 smartphone, which rose to extreme popularity following its launch last year? The reasonably priced phone sure is high on specs, but can the Galaxy S4 affect its sales now? Read on to know which of these phones makes most sense for you.
Samsung Galaxy S4: The first impression about the phone may be a little lackluster – its all-plastic body doesn’t exactly feel premium, but power the screen on and you will change your mind for sure. The Galaxy S4’s 5-inch full HD display is sharp and crystal clear. The LTE version of the phone is powered by a quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor while the 3G version of this phone comes with Samsung’s octo-core Exynos 5 processor. Both versions have 2 GB of RAM. Add to that its 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front-facing camera, both with a wide variety of camera functions, and the Galaxy S4 becomes a perfect companion for the photo-lovers. The Galaxy S4 is fitted with a 2,600 mAh battery and runs on Android 4.2.2.
LG Nexus 4: The Google Nexus 4 smartphone was manufactured by LG and comes with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 318 ppi. Running on Android 4.2.2, it is powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM. The LG Nexus 4 is fitted with an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. The huge downside in this phone – it lacks LTE connectivity. A 2,100 mAh battery gives the phone a talktime of over 15 hours. But at the end of the day, its USP remains its price-point. So if you’re looking for a pocket-friendly superstar, this will continue to remain your best option.
