Recent years have seen a tremendous change in the mobile industry and with the introduction of the “smartphone” first released in 1995 with AT&T’s “Phonewriter™Communicator” but gaining a huge success rate and countrywide adoptions in around 2010. Mobile manufacture giants like HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, Apple, Blackberry OS and Microsoft-Nokia, all dominate the market to some extent or another. Amongst so many smartphones, which to buy? Now, personally if you have a big budget and want the best out there, the best would be to go for flagship phones – The iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S5, you can also look at HTC’s One M8 or Motorola’s Moto X. But for now, let’s consider the 6 and S5.
So, how do these two flagship giants, stack up against each other? Interestingly there has been a release of an S5 mini for people who don’t like the big size of the phone. Contrary to the iPhone 6+, a bigger version of the iPhone 6, for people who actually want a bigger Apple. In a bit, you will be seeing some advantages and disadvantages around the two devices.
Some of the featuers of the this phone, is stated below:
The drawback of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is that it doesn’t have a radio.
After Jobs’ passing, this was the newest product released by Apple, around September, this year. A few of the specifications are as follows:
The iPhone does have notable drawbacks: similar to Samsung, it doesn’t have a radio. However, customers who have used both the phones are reported to have said that iPhone is more durable, when compared to the S5
Both the S5 and iPhone 6 are their respective company’s flagship phones, both hitting the markets on 2014. Naturally they come with a hefty price tag. You can get the Samsung S5 for around $700, and still hope to get a discount, while the iPhone 6 will probably cost you around $800.
For the iPhone you’d can buy a warranty and an insurance policy to extend from the standard a1-yearly to a 2-yearly basis, which will allow you to take your phone in at their customer care, for any unintentional damage. Samsung too offers free warranty options, but they might not be useable after a year after purchase.
For both of these phones the reviews and feedback are mostly positive. Users have always loved the powerful Galaxy S5, with the features it provides along with the apps and games supplied by Google Play. On the other end, iPhone users have no complaints on the smooth interface of the iPhone 6. Moreover, users love how the interface is so much easier to use and get to know well.
This is a difficult verdict to give. Each smartphone is beautiful on its own, with the S5’s array of black, gold, blue and white colors, and the iPhone 6’s array of space-gray, silver and gold colors. But if you were to choose a set and needed a definite verdict, the iPhone could be your pick. Users who are solely looking for a big array of functions, could choose the Samsung S5. However, if you want a smartphone that is easy to use, runs smoothly, and will do just as you ask it to, then the iPhone 6 would be the smarter choice.
