In the middle of the battle between Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S4, the experts are saying that if you are into antique technology than the iPhone is for you.
If, on the other hand, you are more into the latest and the greatest technologies, then it might be better for you to get the Galaxy S4. They are saying that going from Apple’s iPhone 5 to Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is comparable to upgrading from a rotary phone to a wireless handset in the 1980’s. Listed below are four ways in which the Galaxy S4 makes the iPhone 5 look like it is years out of date.
Bigger, Fuller HD Screen
Apple was excited when it released it’s iPhone 5 with a 4 inch, 1136 X 640 (326 Pixels Per Inch) display; however, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has a 5 inch, 1080p Super AMOLED screen with 441 Pixels Per Inch. What does this mean for the consumer? How about full HD movies at their original 1920 X 1080 size. If that doesn’t meet your needs, how about using a larger virtual keyboard? We all know how frustrating entering text can be the first time you use a touchscreen.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 can shoot videos and photos with either its back-facing 13 Mega Pixel camera or it’s front-facing 2 Mega Pixel Lens or both at the same time. Apple’s iPhone 5 only record from either it’s front or back lens but not both simultaneously.
Gesture and Eye Control
The more you look at consumer electronics these days, more and more electronic devices are using gesture control. Samsung has jumped on this technology trend and even taken it a step further. They have also decided to add eye control for good measure. You will be able to answer your calls, switch to the next song, or even switch tabs in your mobile browser all just buy waving your hand in front of the screen.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 also has a new feature called Smart Pause. Smart Pause uses the eye control feature to tell whether or not you are paying attention to the video playing on your new Samsung. If you get distracted by the real world, Smart Pause will literally pause your video until you return your attention to the screen.
As time goes on, more and more people are using their mobile devices for business applications. As this use for our phones grows, the ability to multitask becomes a higher priority. On the iPhone 5, multitasking consists of switching back and forth between applications hoping that Apple has put in enough memory to recall the previous app.
Samsung has decided to re approach the topic.They have decided to allow you to have more of a desktop feel when it comes to multitasking. The Galaxy S4’s dual-view feature will actually allow you to run two separate apps side-by-side.
