Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Apple iPhone 5 Comparison Chart - Specs & Features Review

The rivalry between Apple and Samsung has mushroomed into an all-out war, and the brands’ flagship smartphones are its most deadly weapons. On one side, you have the iPhone 5, a device that’s Zen-like in its simplicity but also very swift and light on its feet. And on the other side, you have the Galaxy S4, which hopes to overwhelm Apple with a bigger screen and a steady barrage of features.

 

Samsung Galaxy SIV

 Apple iPhone 5

 The latest in the popular line of Samsung's Galaxy S smartphones, the Galaxy S4 ups the ante with a larger 5-inch 1080p display and 2600 mAh battery to match. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Beans runs on either an Exynos 5 or Snapdragon 600 processor (depending on region).

At first glance, Apple's iPhone 5 looks very similar to its predecessor but on comparison you'll notice it has a larger, 4-inch display and aluminum unibody construction. Its the first iPhone to include LTE connectivity as well as Apple's "Lightning" data connector for charging and sync.
