iPhone 5s vs Samsung Galaxy S5 – The War of Two Tribes

The tussle between Samsung and Apple is ongoing. After the launch of iPhone 5s, two years back, Samsung also introduced its impeccable S5 model in 2014 to give tough competition to Apple. However, with these strong contenders in the market of smartphones, it’s is very difficult even for an expert to tell who will be victorious.

iPhone 5s vs Samsung Galaxy S5  Lets’s review both and see the results.

 Design

Apple knows how to design a masterpiece and this is evident from the 5S’s two-tone glass and aluminium back. However, Samsung cannot compete here with iPhone as its S5 still has the same old plastic look like the previous models.

 Display

With 4 inches LCD display with 1136 x 640 IPS326 pixel per inch density, iPhone 5S falls short before the 5.1 inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen of Samsung S5. Samsung’s 432 pixels per inch display definitely has an upper hand over iPhone.

 Camera

The 8 mp rear camera of iPhone with ‘True Tone’ flash is quite capable to give tough competition to 16 mp snapper of Samsung S5. However, S5’s camera is much faster than 5S and has the feature to modify the focus of a click post taking the pic. Additionally, you can see how your photo will look in HDR with its realtime HDR feature. Although, feature-wise Samsung overpowers the iphone, undoubtedly, iPhone 5S has the best camera ever.

 Battery

Having low powered 1,560 mAh juice pack, iPhone 5S fails to impress the users who needs extended battery life. However, with 2,800mAh battery, Samsung S5 has all the abilities to flatter its users. S5 only drops 16% of its battery even after keeping at video with full brightness. Isn’t it astounding?

After analysing aspects of both iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5, we can say that both the devices has its pros and cons and with strong clientele, both smartphones are here to stay in the market even after the launch of their upgraded versions. … Read the rest

Apple iPhone 6 Release May Happen Sooner As Apple Stock Fails to Live up to Investors Predictions

Apple has reported that in December 2013 it made a $13 billion profit, which could be largely dedicated to sale of 51 million units of iPhone 5S and 5C. Though Tim Cook believes that it is the best quarterly performance by the Company, Wall Street seems to disagree as the shares of the company decreased immediately after release of the figures. Apparently, the investors are not very sure about California-Cupertino based company’s growth.

Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C did not capture consumer’s fancy as Apple it was expected by Apple and from what it seems Tim Cook has no intention of entering in the mass market with low-end phones. In his various interviews Cook has indicated that Apple only wants to focus on premium segment of phones.

 According to CNET.com Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster believes that Apple has made its stance on the lower-end clear and its current focus is on creating premium products at a premium price point.

This has made the analyst predict that Apple iPhone sales will decrease in 2014 and 2015. Munster further said in his investor note that the reason for Apple plummeting sales is the US market, which has now reached saturation point, as there the major source of sales is upgrades not new purchases.

 

Therefore, if Apple wants to accelerate its growth the only factor, which will work in its favor, is the early releases of iPhone 6 which may help Apple get an edge above its Android counterparts.

 

Recent rumors suggest that Apple will release iPhone 6 in the first quarter of 2014 and it is expected that the just like iPhone 5, iPhone 6 will come in two versions.
