We bought to you a face off between Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5. This makes it more than necessary for us to bring to you a faceoff between Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s, the latest offering from the house of Apple. We saw that S4 won over iPhone 5 and we shall see again that S5 wins over iPhone 5s. It isn’t that we are biased towards the android market, it is just that for the price being quoted, S5 is more worth the money we pay. To satisfy all of you geeks out there, we are going to properly examine the features in this article and base our result via an informed and educated process. This article will lay out ten reasons why Samsung Galaxy S5 is better than iPhone 5s. Not only will it help you decide, it will also boost the morale of all android lovers while the exact opposite will stand true for Apple lovers.
10. Camera Control
The first aspect that we will microscopically examine is the camera control. Although there is no denying the fact that the 8 mega pixel camera on the iPhone is beyond amazing, but the limitation arises when it comes to the various sorts of exposures and lighting options during photography that are available to the user. Where the iPhone offers a very limited number of options, S5 is equipped with different settings for IOS and amount of exposure. Then we also have the virtual mode which converts random pictures clicked while walking around into a movie all on its own. Then we also have the various modes and multiple options on the camera screen in comparison to which, the iPhone screen looks quite dull. The clear winner is thus S5.
9. Video Quality
The next aspect is the video quality. Where the iPhone 5s is still offering HD when operating at its level best, S5 is now equipped with 4k which is the standard that is now expected of laptops and the same is being offered as well. We have reason to believe that iPhone has a lot of catching up to do.
8. The Heartbeat Monitor
There are a lot of differences between the previous version of the famous Galaxy S5, S4. One of the most pronounced difference is the addition of a heartbeat monitor. We are aware that this functionality can also be achieved by simply installing an app but it comes built in with the galaxy handset and makes it unique because it is something that the iPhone does not offer. This fetches the Samsung team another well earned point.
7. Expandable Memory
As was the case with the previous faceoff, the case of expandable memory is obviously a huge plus point for Samsung. We are all aware that an iPhone comes with a fixed and fairly in-built memory/storage, so once you have paid money for 16gb, 32gb or 64gb, that is all you will get EVER, unless of course you purchase a new handset. With the Galaxy sets and also with S5 obviously, you get the option of using the microSD card and this translates to mean up to 128gb of extra storage if you so wish.
6. Limited Battery Power
We say this with all the sympathy we can muster for one of the hottest looking smartphones out there, that not having the capacity to replace a battery certainly counts as a negative point in our books and therefore makes the company loose a point as far as our faceoff is concerned. Where S5 allow you to carry a charged battery with you and replace the one in the phone when the power dies, iPhone 5’s battery is not replaceable. Your best bet is to carry around a portable charger which is obviously going to have its own weight. The point again goes to Samsun as we near the end of faceoff.
5. Power Saving Mode
The next point that we come to is the power saving mode in the Galaxy S5. This is another one of the ten reasons why Samsung Galaxy S5 easily beats iPhone 5s. Now what the power saving mode does is that it limits the functionality of the phone and the display loses its color and only a limited number of apps remain available for use but on the power saving mode, the battery can last an amazing whole week where as a ten percent charge can take you throughout the day. If that is not amazing then what is.
4. Kids Mode
Another surprising and very intelligent feature that the S5 has to offer is the kids mode. This is another one of the very-much-needed features that the iPhone really needs to have. We are always in fear that the tech savvy generation of today would go into our apps, private conversations and what not if we hand over our smart phones. The Kids Mode on the S5 deals with this situation making the android completely safe in the hands of a child. No parental controlling is needed above and beyond this amazing mode.
3. Interconnected Apps
We come to our next amazing feature which makes S5 far more superior to the iPhone. This formidable quality is the inter-connectibility of the various S5 applications which, as you may have noticed, give you the ease to share a picture on Instagram directly from the gallery. For the same purpose to be achieved on iPhone 5s, you need to constantly shift between various apps. We can’t but give Samsung enormous credit for this ease.
2. USB on the go
This next feature which is one of the reasons whys S5 beats iPhone 5s is the fact that the Samsung android can be used as go-to USB especially when you have forgotten your own and urgently require one on hand. You simply need to wire up and transfer. Sadly, a lack of similar compatibility exists in iPhone 5s.
1. Water Proof
Last but not the least, we come to our last reason. How would you like your phone to be water proof for around 30 minutes and for a depth of about three feet meaning you never have to worry about spilling water over your gadget like ever? We are sure that you would like it very much and this is exactly what S5 has to offer! The same, yet again, is yet to be available in the iPhone series, a phone that is very vulnerable when it comes in touch anything liquid.
