iPhone 5S or Galaxy S4 – A comparison (PART II)


In part I, I had quoted three basic points of differences between S4 and i5S. Continuing with that, I have three more distinctive characteristics of these mega phones.


Advanced version of multitasking, Control Center for Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode, Screen brightness, innovative Notification Center and separate tabs for All and Missed alerts are being highly rewarded. i5S also blends flawlessly with the ecosystem of Apple allowing effortless connection with other Apple devices.

On the other hand, S4 hands over your notifications and settings in a single view via TouchWiz. Customization of settings is also being appreciated. For multitasking, S4 still uses the Android’s standard recent apps menu. It also has the Multi-Window feature i.e. running multiple apps simultaneously. The Android 4.2 of S4 will soon be updated to the latest version – Android 4.4 KitKat.


S4 is flawless when it comes to performance. The quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU is just the perfect thing that every user demands. While on the other hand, i5S with the A7 chip and 64-bit architecture is undoubtedly the swiftest phone available around the world.


The most sensational competition is between the distinctive features – Siri and S Voice, M7 coprocessor and Remote Control and iCloud and Air Gesture.

Each company has done a marvelous job with its voice recognition feature but obviously only one can be the winner.

Through iCloud and Auto Backup, both companies offer backup for pictures and personal data. Apple’s latest addition, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor is incredible. To this feature, S4 is competing with its Air Gesture.

S4 can be alternated into a remote control for Samsung devices such as the TV. I5S’s M7 coprocessor is perfect for fitness apps.
