Samsung Galaxy S4 Specs

Member

So I am up for renewal and am wondering what people think about the Samsung Galaxy S4 that is going to be released in March. I've been contemplating whether or not to go with the iPhone 5 or the Galaxy S4.

The reviews of the S4 seem good so far? Anyone have any thought?

Really those two aren't even in the same ballpark. Iphone5 can't even compare to a GSIII

I guess I haven't messed with the Galaxy S3 so I'm not even too sure what the differences are between the Galaxy S3 vs Galaxy S4. I've just messed around with some friends iPhones and they seem pretty solid. Why do you say that the iPhone 5 can't even compare?

Well look at the specs. I mean first all 4 inch screen vs 4.8 not even close.

I haven't seen too many Galaxy S4 specs. I was actually trying to see if anyone knew them. A lot of the terminology goes over my head. I do get that it's a bigger screen but is that worth it?

Rumored specs that I've seen:

  • 4.99″ Full-HD SoLux Display
  • Snapdragon 600 1.9 Ghz
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16, 32 or 64 GB
  • 13 Megapixel
  • Removable battery

Samsung's launch event is March 14.

Of course you can compare them. One is not necessarily better than the other. Having a 4.8" screen does not make a phone better than a phone with a 4" screen. You HAVE TO compare them. How else would you know which one you would prefer? There are pluses and minuses for each one.

I have a GSIII and a Razr Maxx HD that I keep switching on my line while my daughters each have iPhones. There are features on each of my phones(but not on both) which I prefer which is why I can't decide which to stick with. However, there ARE features on my daughter's iPhones which I wish were available on my 2 android phones. I personally wish I could take features from each of the 3 phones and put them all together.

I would recommend going into a store, though, and see which you would prefer. Just looking at the specs alone is not a good way to make the choice. The size difference is considerable. You may prefer the larger or smaller form factor.

Another MAJOR difference is the OS. There are distinct differences between android and iOS. It appears you have had some experience with iOS. Have you had any experience with android? After comparing the 2, you may find you prefer one over the other.

I5 vs GS3 are definitely in the same ballpark; it is really just a matter a personal preference.  However it's hard to imagine the GS4 not being better.

What I see it as do you have the patience to put up with VZW slow...SLOW...SLOW...slow android updates or go with the iphone and apple will take care of that when they think you need it.  I go for the SIII which I am very happy with and am very patient with updates from VZW.  I will be getting an SIV when they are in the market.  I won't have anything apple...just have no use for apple products.

I agree, there are some features that I like on the Android and also the screen size is so different. Excited to actually play with the Galaxy S4 when it's released!
