Comparison between iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5: which is better?


iPhone 5S vs Galaxy S5: which one should you buy?

At the recent MWC 2014 Samsung officially presented its new top of the range: Galaxy S5. This powerful smartphone will be the direct competitor of Apple's iPhone 5S and surely in the coming months it will be the reference device in the telephony market, together with the new one LG G3 and the new HTC One 2.

In this article, for, we're going to compare the new smartphone from Samsung, the Galaxy S5 precisely, with the top of the range from Apple, iPhone 5S. Who will win? Which one is better? Let's find out in this interesting comparison.

To compare Galaxy S5 with iPhone 5S, let's start first of all from the dimensions of the two smartphones.

Obviously, the Galaxy S5 is much larger, heavier and bulkier than the iPhone 5S. As we have already seen with S3 and S4, the 5.1-inch screen does not make it possible to use the Samsung with one hand, unlike the iPhone, which can instead be used with one hand without problems. Even on Galaxy S5, as on S4 and Note 3, however, it is possible to activate a particular window that reduces the size of the display and still allows you to use the Galaxy S5 with one hand. A comfortable and effective solution.

As we said, however, the Galaxy S5 weighs significantly more than the Apple iPhone 5S.

For what concern display, this is much better on Galaxy S5: bigger, defined, resolute and with much brighter colors. If it has the same quality as the Note 3 screen, then this screen will be truly magical.

The processor different and, at the moment, difficult to say which of the two is better. Apple's, however, works in 64-bit and should theoretically offer better performance.

RAM definitely in favor of the Galaxy S5: 2GB vs 1GB. However, it must be said that iOS 7 installed on the iPhone is much lighter, slimmer and faster than Android 4.4.2, which is also coupled with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. On balance, perhaps, the RAM that mounts iPhone, although being smaller, better manages open applications and the system in general. But this we can only say with certainty how much we can test the Galaxy S5.

At the level of internal memory the Galaxy S5 definitely wins: available only in the 16 and 32GB version (against the 16, 32 and 64GB version of the iPhone 5S), but the Samsung smartphone supports external MicroSD up to 128GB. Too bad that the internal memory on Samsung is only 8GB available on first start (on 16GB), while that of iPhone 5S is at least 12GB on first start (on 16GB).

Both smartphones have a fingerprint reader, but this function has been implemented much better on Samsung, where it is possible to make payments with the sensor, block access to some apps, activate child mode and more. The Galaxy S5 also has a sensor to detect your heart rate using the rear flash, which is much better and more powerful than that of the iPhone.

Furthermore theGalaxy S5 resists water and dust, while iPhone 5S does not.

At the level of camera wins the Galaxy S5, at least on paper. We must then see if this hardware superiority will result in better shots and videos. For now, at the software and hardware level, the Galaxy S5 has a big advantage, especially if we consider the new sensor that allows an almost immediate autofocus to take photos on the fly without blurring.

Also at the level of battery vinceGalaxy S5: more capacious, guarantees more hours of autonomy and removable. That of iPhone 5S no.

The Galaxy S5 also has the NFC chipwhich is missing on the iPhone. The iPhone for has Siri, while the Galaxy S5 still lacks a complete voice assistant like that of Apple (the one installed by Samsung practically useless).

At the level of price, iPhone 5S starts from 730, while Galaxy S5 costs about 700, which will easily become 730. The price, therefore, practically identical.

We close this comparison between iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5 with the complete technical data sheets.

A very tough challenge, which, at least on paper, is won by Samsung. We will see if, when it arrives on the market, the Samsung smartphone will actually outperform the competitor of Apple. The potential is all there, especially if we consider that the Galaxy S5 can also count on the Gear 2 smartwatch and the Gear Fit, really useful and innovative accessories, highly appreciated by users.

Which side are you on? BetterGalaxy S5 or iPhone 5S for you? For now I stay with my Note 3, I wouldn't change it at all in the world.
