iPhone 5 Vs Galaxy S IV: A Comparison Of Two Of The Top Smartphones [VIDEO]

The Galaxy S IV was released on Thursday, March 14th at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. We already gave a rundown on its new features, specs etc. and concluded that it is indeed an impressive handset. In case you missed the previous overview, the Galaxy S IV features a 5-inch AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution (441ppi), an Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel camera. It has some amazing new software features as well such as smart scrolling, smart pause, s health and Air View / Air Gesture.

iPhone 5 Vs Galaxy S IV

On paper the Galaxy S IV looks like an iPhone killer, but as Apple has proved, specs are not always everything. Although we will need to wait for the Galaxy S IV to officially ship to consumers before a proper comparison between the two handsets can be made, PhoneArena has done an initial comparison that does offer some valid insight.

hey have concluded that the iPhone feels of higher quality thanks to its aluminum body and that the iPhone is also thinner. As for the operating system, the Galaxy S IV definitely feels more powerful with its new wide range of features. In terms of display quality, the Galaxy S IV does have the iPhone beat because of its higher pixel density, but it loses out to the iPhone in color reproduction.

All in all, both handsets are excellent, but it will come down to personal preference on which one is right for you. What do you think? Do you think the Galaxy S IV is better than the iPhone 5? Drop us a line in the comments section below.

    Honestly speaking, I find all those features of hand waving and all that stuff just complete crap. Of course its a nice futuristic thing from the touch but take for example the picture switching, just as easy as I wave my hand over the device I think I would find it easier to just slide my thumb quickly across it. Not a deal breaker for me. As far as the whole step counter, there are apps for the iPhone that do the exact same job and they do it well (“Moves” is one of those apps). Also the whole video pause thing when I look away from the screen, I find that not so useful because there are many times I just let my iPhone run a video while I’m doing something else, and I have no need for the video to be paused every time I stop looking for a second.

    In terms of the color reproduction, it has always been like that with the iPhone and Galaxy, that’s not new that the iPhone features more realistic color reproduction (I have tested it on my iPhone 5 and my friends Galaxy S3).

    And don’t get me wrong, the Galaxy S IV is a nice phone with great new hardware, but the overall extra features they add in are just plain useless. Until I see some major change and a new feature that catches my eye, I won’t be switching to the Galaxy. I have considered to switch to the Galaxy S IV pending reviews, but if all reviews conclude the same thing as this one, I have no reason to switch and am even glad I stayed with my iPhone.

    I would use the hand waving thing, but only if my hands were dirty or something

    Actually it doesn’t make much of a difference if your hands are dirty since you would be needing to somehow navigate to the photos app in the first place. You can’t launch the photo app by the hand wave, only switch between photos. So if your hands are dirty, you would have to touch the phone anyways or clean your hands. Still a useless feature in my opinion. To be honest it’s really kinda like how Siri was at the beginning. Everyone was hyping over the new technology of having a conversation with your phone and asking questions like you would ask a human and all, but looking at it now, no one really uses it so much and it’s becoming less of a big deal as time passes. Just like the waving feature.
