Both the handsets are yet to be launched in the market but Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Apple iPhone 5S specs and features comparison makes very interesting reading. It is needless to say that this comparison is based on rumors that have been leaked by different sources.

Korean tech giant Samsung’s forthcoming smart-phone Galaxy S4 is being talked so much that one can be excused for thinking that it will be distributed for free when launched. But alas this is not going to be the case. There are millions and millions of people out there who are ready to pay whatever Samsung asks them to pay. This sort of frenzy for a non-Apple product seems amazing and announces the smart-phone world becoming bipolar instead of being unipolar. So far there was only one player that mattered and whose products made headlines.

Apple products only mattered till now, but things are changing very fast and Apple is becoming well aware of changing times. The way it is being whipped up at Wall Street is indication that there is another super power in the making that is cutting it to the size. But Apple cannot be written off as yet. It has a very loyal fan base of hundreds of millions of people scattered throughout the world.

Here we try to compare what Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S would look like. Rumorland is full with talks and chants about the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple iPhone 5S. What these two devices will be? How will they differ from their current versions and the other high-end devices? Here is our investigation along with a comparison between the possible phones. They have been living in rumors for a long time. So, rumor mills have spilled out lots of rumors about the devices. Let us move to Galaxy S4 Vs iPhone 5S analysis and comparison here.

Both the handsets come with different OS. The largest difference between an Apple phone and a Samsung phone is software. All Apple products run its own operating system called the iOS. The new iPhone 5S or 6 will be getting a fresh version to the software called the iOS 7 since the current version is iOS 6. Samsung produces most of its high-end phones with Google Android out of the box. The new Galaxy S phone is expected to run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The existing version of the phone features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean after a recent upgrade from its original Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

There is going to be huge difference between the two when it comes to display size. Samsung Galaxy S4 will come out with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FullHD resolution screen. The company has showcased its innovative FHD sAMOLED panel at CES 2013. This display is meant as a rival to the LCD FullHD screens from companies like Sharp, LG and others. So, the S4 will be the first handset to roll out with a 1080p sAMOLED screen. It will thus be an intense competitor to the new line of FullHD phones that all have LCD screens. Nothing is known about the display of the new iPhone. The current iPhone has a really larger ever- Phone display screen. With a 4-inch display, Apple has broken its tradition of a typical 3.5-inch display and added a large one with a goal to stay competitive to the then new line of Android phones. But, things have entirely changed and now the Android market is flourished with lots of phablets, i.e. phones with 5+inch displays. So, can we expect a 5-inch iPhone time? No idea; let us wait.

When it comes to processor, Galaxy S4 is expected to come with an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) chip, which Samsung has recently unveiled. It will be coming inside the brand new ARM Cortex-A15 processor that may likely offer a clocking speed of around 2GHz. To support the advanced processor, the device will have 2GB RAM and a superbly powerful graphical processor. The new iPhone is to mount a new A7 or A6X chipset with the capability for taking up large-scale tasks and processing. It may also get 2GB RAM. It is better to say that Apple is really forced to include great specs to the device with a goal to lead a fight against the new Android phones.

To be true the camera is going to be a lot better than we have right now. Well, an advanced rear camera can be certainly expected on the S4. Two of its last forerunners – the S2 and S3 – have the same 8MP rear cameras, but the new trend in market is 13MP or higher cameras. So there is no reason to doubt that Samsung wouldn’t add a heavy camera on its new Galaxy S4. So is the case with the new iPhone. The Apple phone is also said to emerge out with a 13MP camera. The current iPhone also has an 8MP camera like its two last predecessors. But to be true, very little is clearly known about the specs and features of both the handsets yet to be launched in the Indian market.

    who the heck cares about specs… there is no real innovation in technology now and android manufacturers are just mainly improving what we already have. in 10 years we might have a phone with pretty much the same features but just with a 5 gigahertz octa-core processor and 10 GB of ram… thats no fun.
