10 Ways Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Is Better Than The iPhone 5

Kevin Smith

Samsung announced its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S 4 earlier this month in New York.

Critics have been going wild because the Galaxy S 4 is real competition to Apple’s iPhone 5.
The Galaxy S 4 is packed with the latest hardware and software features like a 13 megapixel camera, eye tracking technology, and even a way to use the phone without touching the screen.
While the iPhone 5 is still an impressive smartphone, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Galaxy S 4.

The Galaxy S 4 is faster than the iPhone 5.

Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 has a quad-core processor compared the the iPhone 5’s dual core processor.

Primate Labs ran a benchmark test pitting the Galaxy S 4 against other top tier smartphones including the iPhone 5.

The results show that the Galaxy S 4 is almost two times faster than the iPhone 5.

The Galaxy S 4’s screen is bigger.
The Galaxy S 4’s screen measures a whopping 5-inches.

That’s a full inch more screen real estate than the Phone 5. A bigger screen means more apps on one page, more space for videos, and higher quality.

Get ready to hear a lot more about “The Hunger Games” than you ever expected.  The adaptation of Suzanne Collins 2008 novel has been the center of tremendous hype ever since it was labeled the “next” “Twilight” franchise after Lionsgate acquired the big screen rights in 2009.
