Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Apple iPhone 5
Apple iPhone 5 easily beats the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the call-quality department. The iPhone 5's earpiece is clearer and the voices get transmitted to the other end with strong, deep tones. All in all, the Galaxy S4 isn't a particularly good phone when it comes to sound during calls, as neither its earpiece, nor its microphone can offer a decent quality.
The Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 are two amazing smartphones. Interestingly, they manage to be amazing in their own, unique ways, which prevents us from choosing an ultimate winner. The Galaxy S4 is extremely versatile, has a ton of interesting features and a beautiful 5" display that is just perfect for video playback and gaming.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 5 is almost as capable, thanks to the multitude of quality applications available for it, and there's just something special about the simplicity of iOS. It really just works. Many activities won't be as fun or as comfortable to do as on the GS4, due to the iPhone 5's smaller screen, but you'll be surprised at how polished and competent this phone feels.
It all comes down to what type of user you are. Are you a geek or a tech-savvy person who demands a large screen and extreme control over their computing devices? Grab the Galaxy S4 and don't look back! Are you a user who's into technology, but values exquisite design, simplicity and fine-tuned experiences? Get an iPhone – it's still unbeatable in those areas.
We measure battery life by running a custom web-script, designed to replicate the power consumption of typical real-life usage. All devices that go through the test have their displays set at 200-nit brightness.
