The iPhone 6 which is soon to come will be great competition for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Here we have a comparison between the two to figure out which one would actually be the best choice since both are amazing flagships for their companies.
Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is ruling the tech market right now, no other device being quite like it: the device comes with amazing specs that are just daring every other company to come with a worthy opponent. Unfortunately for Samsung, Apple is in the making of a revolutionary handset as well which will at least be as sold as Samsung. We keep hearing great news about the iPhone 6, but let’s see which one is actually better when it comes to specs and price.
The iPhone 6 has yet to be released, most people expecting Apple to release their new flagship somewhere in September or October (seeing how most of its past smartphones hit the market in that period of the year). The Samsung Galaxy S5 appeared on the market on April 11th this year, which makes it relatively new and exciting. There is no official statement about what price tag will be on the iPhone 6, but as we know Apple, it will be most likely more expensive than the Galaxy S5. Right now, the smallest price the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be found at is $583.00. Samsung made this device even more affordable, seeing how the Galaxy S4, after two months of being on the market, was more expensive than is the Galaxy S5 right now.
There aren’t many leaks about the iPhone 6 will bring to the table, but we are sure that the device will come as a competition for the S5. What we can tell you is that Samsung equipped its handset with a Super AMOLED display measuring 5.1 inches and that can render a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The device is powered by a Krait 400 processor (quad core working at 2.5 GHz) which is paired up with a Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC chipset from Qualcomm. The Galaxy S5 can be purchased with two options of internal storage: 16 GB and 32 GB (by using a microSD card, you can expand this memory by up to 128 GB). The battery unit housed on this smartphone has a capacity of 2800 mAh which is estimated to last 21 hours of talking time. Other interesting features that Samsung brought with this device are the fingerprint scanner and the heart-beat sensor. The iPhone 6 does promise to come with revolutionary technology, so we’ll just have to wait to see if it is a match for the South Korean flagship.
The operating system is also an aspect we have to cover. Considering that the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS was just released by Google and it was not available in April, the Galaxy S5 does come with the best option of operating system: the Android KitKat. We are sure that Samsung will make available an upgrade to the new OS. As for the iPhone 6, this one will probably have iOS 8.
Now, since we don’t have full details about the iPhone 6, we have to say that the Samsung Galaxy S5 can still enjoy its success because it is an exquisite smartphone. If you’re patient enough to wait for the iPhone 6, Apple’s device is probably excellent as well, so it’s just a matter of taste which one you choose.
