Let’s look at the basic comparison between the both giant rivals.
The Galaxy S5 sensor seems to be difficult to use with one hand. To access it, the user must swipe directly over the center of the button and cover it with their full finger. The user has to swipe starting from the bottom which is kind of effort involving and this makes it tough to use with one hand. At the same time the iPhone 5s provides access to multiple scans of the user's finger and can be accessed from almost all angles. This makes the option of Fingerprint Sensor of iPhone 5s much easier compared to Galaxy S5
SoC and RAM:
Albeit it is not much possible to know every small detail hardware working of a smartphone, still it is always good to know why a gadget clicks.The Galaxy S5 implements the new Snapdragon 801 processor and also uses MSM8974-AC CPU variant, which boasts frequencies of 2.5GHz in place of 2.3 GHz. On the other side, the processor also holds an Adreno 330 graphics chip and 2 GB of RAM.
On the opposite, the iPhone end, it adopts a 64-bit architecture. The Apple A7 SoC accompanies a dual-core Cyclone CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, and a Power G6430 GPU. The SoC works side-by-side with 1 GB of RAM.
Because both uses different Operating systems... we cannot compare just by processing speeds as S5 uses Android (which is resource hungry) and 5S uses IOS 7(which is less resource hungry and uses an optimized SoC)
Talking about display, Samsung chose a wider display and Galaxy S5 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Full High Definition. Also to add, Samsung uses AMOLED type display which has more saturated colors. On the other hand Phone 5s features a 4-inch display with 1136 x 640 resolutions at 326 ppi, which is still a stronger display for the iPhone. The Galaxy S5 is sure to lure the eyes of the user but when it comes to iPhone 5S, no innovations discovered.
8.1 mm, the Galaxy S5 is thicker than the 4” iPhone 5s, larger and heavier and clumsy which makes it unable to use in single hand. The Plastic built Samsung Display introduces perforated back refrain, which is available in four colors, including a golden version.Apple handset also comes in golden variant, but the iPhone is shaped in a quite a different way, witha premium metal and glass materials for the frames.
A7 chip with 64-bit architecture makes iPhone 5s features Apple's it an extremely unique device. It is the first smartphone in 64 bits. Apple's devices normally perform smoother and better than the Galaxy S handsets since the company manages to perfectly manage software with the hardware better. The Galaxy S5 comes with either a Snapdragon 801 chip or 2.1GHz Exynosocta-core processor. Though the hardware seems inspiring, Samsung processors normally perform better than they actually run.
In conclusion we can say that Samsung has adapted a lot of lot ideas from Apple, rather than being innovative. Both these smartphones are not one step ahead of each other. To know more, let’s wait for the new Galaxy Samsung S5 to hit the market soon. Apart from all the above mentioned comparisons, users have a great role in increasing the demand of a product. Users will have a personal interest and like towards a specific company and its products to which they are used to. This can eventually answer to the question if Galaxy S5 is fully set to compete with the iPhone 5S.
