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?

Fingerprint Authentication Feature of Samsung Galaxy S5 Hacked, Users Concerned About PayPal Integration

It took just four days for German researchers to hack the fingerprint sensor of Samsung Fingerprint Authentication Feature of Samsung Galaxy S5 Hacked, Users Concerned About PayPal IntegrationGalaxy S5. They could trick the fingerprint sensor to grant unauthorized access with just the use of a fingerprint mold instead of a real one. Moreover, this software is so ineffective that even after rebooting the phone it allows unlimited authentication attempts without even asking for a password. A video has also been posted on YouTube by Security Research Labs (SRLabs) demonstrating the hacking process.

Galaxy S5 is the only phone after Apple iPhone 5S to have a fingerprint sensor. Thus, this feature was the USP of this phone. However, due to the technical glitch Galaxy S5 is facing major flak from all corners.

This issue has become a bigger concern since the smartphone boasts of PayPay integration. SRLabs opines that this integration gives people more reason to hack a smartphone. However, PayPal firmly defended the biometric authentication on its part by issuing an official statement on this matter.

Fingerprint authentication has been a debatable issue ever since iPhone 5S was launched by Apple with this feature and got hacked. The effectiveness of this feature, which was supposed to provide an additional layer of security, is being questioned even more since Galaxy S5 was spoofed. At least, iPhone 5S required users to put in a password before continuing towards the fingerprint authentication or every time the phone reboots but Galaxy 5S never asks for a password.

The question arising in this situation is that it is true that you can change a compromised password but how can you change a compromised fingerprint? Thus, manufacturers always need to ensure that the implementation of any technology should not put users at risk in anyway. They should always think about the loopholes first before introducing the thing to people.

Samsung is yet to comment on this matter but it is expected to issue a statement soon and take care of the situation.
