Apple iPhone 5c vs Samsung Galaxy S4

0. phoneArena posted on 16 Oct 2013, 05:51

On one side of the ring, we have the almighty Samsung Galaxy S4, the Android smartphone that’s arguably the best that the platform has to offer. And on the other side, we have the refreshed version of the iPhone 5 – what we know now as the iPhone 5c. Indeed, it’s regarded as a mid-ranger due to its price point, but that doesn’t mean it can’t hold its own ground against the more aggressive offering of the Galaxy S4. New body, same old hardware from before, so let’s find out how the iPhone 5c stacks up against the Galaxy S4!...

How ironic! I live in Singapore and the 5c is more expensive than the S4. Thanks to all the blind Apple fans who are willing to pay more for the 5c compared to the S4 just because they covet the Apple logo so much. S4 FTW no brainer.

5c vs S4 is a very fair comparison because in most Asian countries the 5c is more expensive than the S4 so this comparison is very relevant.
The 5s cannot be used to compare against the S4 because it costs close to $400 more than the S4 and is in a different price league.
It's the demand that dictates such insane Apple pricing here.
Just goes to show how stupid some people are!

Got the new 5s a few days ago.

I got roughly USD180 additional rebate for "returning" my >3 years old iPhone4. (released in June 2010)

You know what? The very same carrier is offering only about USD150 rebate for returning a Galaxy S3 released in May 2012.

Even worse, I'd get only USD20 rebate for returning a Galaxy K (Galaxy S equivalent in Korea) which is released in October 2010, four months AFTER the iPhone4.

And there are reasons. People should know that.

PS : And no, the offer isn't bound to contracting a new iPhone.

Galaxy S3 > 2(iPhone 5c)
- additional SD memory
- replaceable battery
- much larger display

Which phones would techie person choose? all my engineer friends and any technically savie friends choose Androids.
All non-technical people, I strongly recommend Apple. Easy phone to use but limited and restricted.

f**k Apple, the iPhone 5c is a piece of s**t wrapped in plastic! And it is way to expensive! The iMac! 1,700 dollars for that piece of crap, it doesn't even have a superdrive! then you have to pay a hundred more f**king dollars for that at apple. I can get a windows 8 desktop with a touch screen, a core i7, a terabyte, 8 gb's of RAM, and a huge display, for around 1,200 dollars. Screw you apple!

First things first the iPhone 5c is way better than the samsung galaxy s4 in many ways the camera the battery the screen on the 5c is beautiful and outstanding iPhone can last you all day while galaxy can only last about 5-6 hours on blast like playing games and having your brightness all the way up now I'm not just saying this because I have an iPhone 5c I'm saying this because it's true. Before I had an iPhone I had this awful phone called the Motorola photon it was terrible I hated it the camera was horrible even though it was an 8mp lies the worst thing about that phone was the battery I would be on 100 20 mins later I'd be on 40 and when I upgrade to an iPhone I said that I will never go back to android ever again and I'm not because iPhone is so much better than android and galaxy put together. #teamiphone
