Apple iPhone 5S vs Galaxy S4 vs LG G2: good things come in all packages

0. phoneArena posted on 10 Sep 2013, 15:25

If we isolate for screen size, the newly announced Apple iPhone 5S has all the makings of a futureproof flagship device, especially in the chipset part, even against current Android kings of the shelves like the Galaxy S4 and the LG G2...

Why don't they have the info on the battery for the G2 it has already been tested and released and blows the doors off the other 2. It is around 30 hours.

Seems like the battery life still sucks for the iPhone5S.

G2 > S4 > iPhone 5S.

G2 is superior in every single aspect basically.

I would honestly buy an iPhone 5S before a GS4. I don't know why, but the GS4 is just completely worthless to me. It's not Samsung in general, it's the GS4 specifically; I loved my GS2 and GS3, and I like the new members of the Note series, but the GS4 is strangely unattractive and uninteresting to me.

i dont know why the GS3 would be better than the GS4 in terms of looks, features and specs, but i guess thats your opinion.

I never said the GS3 was "better", I just liked it better than the GS4, regardless of the features or specs. It just had a better overall feeling about it. Kind of hard to explain.

The S4 was more of a bump up in improvement than the 5S happens to be, when you compare the differences against each respective predecessor

It is no doubt, but I still just don't like the GS4 based on my hands on time with it. It just didn't give me the same "wow" feeling when I got my GS3, you know?

"WOW"? Are you one of those hardheads that choose to be arrogant? I actually owned all versions of the Galaxy S3 and while the S3 at launch did not seem to have more features than that of S2, The screen, battery life, and option for GPE. Go ahead, buy your IPone(Misspelled on purpose). Tell me major things that you can do on IPhone 5 that you can’t on iPhone 3G? Wake up and smell the roses dude, if you want a phone that will make you say wow, get an iphone and use Apple maps to get you there. :)

Arrogant? Me saying I liked the GS3 better at launch than the GS4 and I would have an iPhone over the GS4 is being arrogant? How did you manage to think of that?

Also, just because I would rather have an iPhone 5S over the GS4 doesn't mean I'm going to get an iPhone. There are other phones in the world, like my Droid Mini which I currently wouldn't trade for anything; iPhone 5S, Galaxy S4, Note 3, HTC One, LG G2, etc.

The iphone is good for kids and chicks (no offense to the women), but when are they going to make a phone for men, you know, with bigger hands/fingers. The iphone 5 is like a toy in most men\'s hands. Small screen on a bigger phone. The Moto X is about the same size as the iphone yet it has a 4.7 inch screen. Apple is really starting to fall behind and even there FANBOYS at PA are starting to look/sound real DUMB!

really today I clearly understand how much the phonearena biased towards iphone.
guys in phonearena dont ever believe their camera comparison ..I lost trust in them as I saw a article from Ray telling about camera.
Gsmarena is all about professional ..
phonearena I feel sad for you..

\"We can\'t wait for some cross-platform benchmarks, but we have the feeling everyone\'s silicon might get smoked by the new A7, especially in the graphics department\"

Are you serious?, care to explain what it has to smoke Adreno 330 or Mali T628, in terms of CPU absolutely no chance....64 bit is useless in a system with less than 4GB of RAM.

Clearly Galaxy S4 most important thing battery life and large display. No chance apple can win again. Regret buying iPhone 4S (battery lasts 3 hours) apple too greedy seeking money. Not putting enough features in phone.

If we isolate for brain size, I'm as smart as Albert Einstein! Who knew?

And seriously. A 64-bit CPU? Who ever had the sheer moral courage and intellectual temerity to even consider that? Except for Motorola, Samsung, LG, HTC, and some Korean guy with a kiosk in Seoul who all thought about it and said, "um... no."

I'm embarrassed for Apple. Still.

Very iPhone biased article. How can you say the the Screen Resolution, Pixel Density, Screen size and Camera resolution are in the same league as the S4 and LG G2? Apple didn't release any specifics on the CPU speed and the amount of cores the 5s have, my guess it will be 2 cores. Therefore a 64bit dual core cpu vs a quad core 32bit cpu does not look so convincing after all. Also how much ram does the iPhone have ? My guess still 1gb vs 2 GB on the other two.
Spec wise there is no comparison.

Love how they say that the 64 bit will be wonderful for \"future\" apps. By the time enough apps get converted to 64 bits to make the processor worthwhile, iFruit will be introducing the iPhone 7S.

Why waste a 64b processor on a phone that will be owned for less than 2 years when it will take more than 2 years for the apps to catch up with the HW?
