It is 2014 now and a new chapter begins for the gadget world. While the tech community is busy anticipating a long list of great smartphones and tablets coming this year, three new phones are catching the attention of the world as they continue to sell into the year.
There is no denying that the LG Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and LG G2 are showing an incline in the sales charts despite being launched for some time now. All three phones are affordable. However, which of them are able to come out as a winner?
Both the Nexus 5 and G2 are similar in many ways. They mirrored each other’s Snapdragon 800 Quad-core processors with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics. As for the Galaxy S4, there are three types of them. One comes with the Exynos Octa-core processor. The second type is the Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.9GHz processor while the third is the LTE type with a Snapdragon 800 Quad-core. All three variants have 2GB RAM equipped with them.
In terms of display quality, the Nexus 5 has a 445ppi with 4.95inche display. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has the same screen size but fell short in terms of ppi. It only offers 441ppi. As for the G2, its 5.2 inch screen offers 424ppi.
The G2 again fell short as it only offered Gorilla Glass 2 compared to the S4 Gorilla Glass 3. The G2 relies 100% on internal memory unlike the S4 which allows memory expansion. Both the G2 and S4 is equipped with a 13MP rear camera. However, the image quality on the S4 is poor.
When it comes to battery life, the G2 has the biggest capacity offering users a 3000mAh battery. The S4 comes second with 2600mAh whereas the Nexus 5 has the smallest of all at 2300mAh.
Finally is the price. The cheapest among the three is the Nexus 5. Both the Nexus 5 and S4 are bound to get the KitKat update. All three phones are great in its own way but if price were to play a role in decision-making, then the Nexus 5 is the best value for money.
