With many new smartphones growing more expensive to own, many consumers are practicing purchasing slightly older devices so that they can enjoy the best for little the price. Then again, consumers find it difficult to decide between the old iPhone 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S5. Well, we recommend getting the latter and here’s why.
First up is the display. The S5 comes with a 5.1” screen that runs at full HD resolution. This means that the smartphone boasts a 432ppi, which is definitely sharper than the iPhone 5S 4” display that only offers 377ppi.
Also, the S5 comes equipped with a 16MP rear camera that is capable of recording videos at 4K resolution. The rear shooter captures images like a pro and it is definitely better than the iPhone 5S rear 8MP rear camera.
Then, there is the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is able to last longer than the iPhone 5S. It is packed with a 2800mAh battery that offers 17hours of non-stop video playback. Furthermore, the S5 features ultra-power saving mode that can keep the basic phone functions in operation for weeks. This is definitely a plus point over the iPhone 5S 1560mAh battery.
There is no need to dispute on performance and such since both the iPhone 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S5 is equipped with the best hardwares that are capable of running every heavy task with ease.
Of course, we have to admit that the iPhone 5S does offer better hardware-software integration thanks to the iOS. Then again, it is not enough to beat the S5 since the latter is cheaper and comes with tons of features to offer. In short, the S5 shouldn’t be viewed as a smartphone but as a companion or personal assistant instead.
