There have been healthy competitions between the two famous major manufacturers of the smartphones and buyers are always tasked with choosing one out of these high spec mobile devices: Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S5. We compare the two smartphones from a consumer perspective by doing a comparative analysis of Apple device specs with that of Samsung.

Design

iPhone offers a smartphone device that features a smooth and slim aluminum material, while Samsung features the incorporation of soft touch plastic and hard plastic surfaces that are designed to look like metal. The iPhone 6 comes with a dimension of 2mm diameter and about 5mm width and will fit nicely in the palm if held with one hand. The device which comes top in this one is obviously the iPhone when looking at it from an artistic point of view.

Storage

These gadgets come with different storage capacities. The iPhone usually features storage capacities of 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. The storage capacity cannot be expanded in any way unless the manufacturer decides to release the one with a larger storage capacity at the later time, which will come at a high price rate.

The Galaxy S5 features a relatively small 16GB internal storage but gives users the chance to increase the storage capacity to a size of about 128GB and this is very affordable by using MicroSD memory cards. This can be considered as a better option because it permits users to choose the exact size they want, and can easily store other information on these external cards. The best device to opt for when considering this factor is the Samsung S5, as it gives users more options and flexibilities when considering the storage capacities.

Performance

Samsung’s smartphone is the best when considering the paper specifications. However, via product testing, both phones have similar features when it comes to vital functionality. In reality, the iPhone has a higher rating when checking response times, and they work faster during everyday use. A lot of this can be attributed to the device’s software and not the processing power. Due to Samsung’s extra capabilities, it results in an unstable testing.
