We believe that it is. Two fabulous smartphones If you are looking for someone to say it’s perfect, the other is nonsense, and it is a universal right answer for everyone, so it will look elsewhere. The two are among the best smartphones of 2014, and anyone can make a lot of people happy. The question is what is best for you.
Comparing the latest iPhone and Galaxy flagships to use the screen size to be a great advantage for Samsung. But with Apple iPhones finished putting more screens than its predecessors, is a small problem. With 4.7 inch iPhone provides 6 85 percent both screen makes the Galaxy S5.
You get more and more S5 on the screen (18 percent, to be exact) galaxy, but at least not to live the iPhone for a definition of 2010 was the size of the screen.
And if you do, you can get even more of an iPhone screen always check phablet Apple iPhone 6 Plus. It extends in a completely different category from the phone, but the possibility of a giant iPhone is it if you want.
Both phones have answers to be operated with one hand. In the Galaxy S5, the whole screen shrinks quick gesture. On the iPhone, easily twice touching the slide touch of top-level Content-ID sensors down (Apple calls this “accessibility”).
I prefer Apple’s approach for smoother animation and feel more integrated part of the software (in the galaxy, the contraction of a hand does not always register for the first time, and feels uneven). I prefer the Samsung approach, but also by reducing the keyboard.
Build quality is a big plus for the iPhone 6. It is probably the smartphone you’ve seen the beautifully designed. Like all recent Apple products, has an aluminum unibody construction. But this time, Apple has given way and the angular look, instead rounded edges. The effect is startling: it looks and feels soft.
The Galaxy S5 has a dimpled plastic back and metal edges and plastic. I do not fear the back: first, it may seem strange, but slightly soft to the touch is comfortable in the hand and gives the phone a unique identity. The operating band of plastic, however, the edge is a major drawback. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 replaced with real metal and made a big difference in the feeling that you are using a high-end device.
Both phones Get a quality of the screen. The GS5 is sharper (432 pixels per inch, 326 against the iPhone) and uses Super AMOLED technology for deep blacks and rich colors. IPhone screen is, however, has an excellent contrast, color accuracy and viewing angles.
I have no complaints about the screens, and I doubt that he will. There are more important to your decision based areas.
The Galaxy S5 is waterproof, which, depending on how the phone is being used, could be a big advantage. If you want the hot tub or, for example, you can bring your GS5 along for the ride. It could also be located next to the pool and swim to shore and check your messages (which makes no swimming, though). And of course it is great insurance against accidental falls in sinks, toilets and water puddles.
Not all fingerprint sensors are the same. Both phones but the iPhone is much better. In the Galaxy S5, you must slide your finger on the start button. You can drag a certain angle, and sometimes I have to repeat shots. On the iPhone, just hold your finger on the touch sensor identification for a brief moment.
Both phones have great cameras, but give me the advantage to the iPhone. The GS5 to make high-resolution photos, but also when zooming or culture, I think the iPhone shots look better. In general, vaccines GS5 highly saturated look, while capturing the iPhone subtle nuances in all lighting conditions.
The iPhone has a slow motion recording mode is phenomenal (recorded at 240 fps in 720p). If you have pets or go to a lot of sports, it is especially nice to have. GS5 The camera has a much too slow, but is grainy and rough compared to the iPhone. GS5 can customize video segments are idle and at normal speed, as done in Apple’s release.
Both phones have a good battery life, but the GS5 has a leg up. In our benchmark, the video over Wi-Fi with brightness set to 75 percent transferred to the battery of the Galaxy S5 fell 10.6 percentage points per hour, while the iPhone reduced by about 14.4 percent per hour.
So the phone is the best? As always, it depends on what you are looking for. You want a high-end design, the fingerprint sensor easily and a better camera? Go with the iPhone 6. Need a larger screen, longer battery life and resistance of the water? Then the Galaxy S5.
