With the announcement of Samsung’s latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S4, the battle of the flagships has once again heated up. Samsung Galaxy S3 which was launched back in May 2012 was a major hit across the world with sales figures beating even the iPhone. With the launch of SGS4, the competition is once again started up. Apart from Samsung and Apple, the other major smartphone makers have their flagship phone and this includes Nokia Lumia 920, BlackBerry Z10 and HTC One.
If you are planning to get a high end smartphone, there are many options available and you might also want to set your priorities on certain features like screen size, camera etc. So in this article we will do a specs comparison of the five flagship phones- Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, Lumia 920, HTC One and the BlackBerry Z10.
If you compare the specs on paper, there is only one winner, the Galaxy S4, but a high end smartphone isn’t all about specs alone. Galaxy S4 and HTC One have almost similar specifications with quad core processor, 2GB RAM, HD screen etc. but HTC One comes with only Android 4.1, while S4 ships with 4.2.2. On the specs front, iPhone has probably the lowest one and it is also the oldest phone of the lot. Lumia 920 and Z10 comes with 1.5 Ghz dual core processor.
When it comes to design, Apple iPhone, Lumia 920 and HTC One excel while SGS4 has an out-dated design. The quality of materials used is also good in these three phone with Samsung using plastics. Galaxy S4 and HTC one have superior display with higher pixels per inch and it is almost 100 higher than the other three.
If camera is your priority, you should be looking at Nokia Lumia 920 or the HTC One, both have superior low light photography features. As of now we are not sure about the camera quality of SGS4. Galaxy S4 has the highest capacity battery with removable covers which is an added advantage to change batteries.
Galaxy S4 and Lumia 920 come with wireless charging, which is now getting popular and this should be one of the important features in 2013. Below is a quick comparison of specifications of all the five flagships.
This is an awesome comparison! I am going out of town on a business trip for DISH at the end of the month, and I would like to upgrade my phone before I go. These phones all have great specs, so it’s hard to narrow them down. I do know that any phone I get will have to run DISH Anywhere, so Blackberry and Windows phones are out. For the remaning 3, it will come down to which one runs the app the best; it streams live TV and DVR recordings to my phone, and I use it to stay current on my favorite shows when I travel. Looking at the remaning specs, I think the high density screen and front facing stereo speakers make the One stand out as being media friendly; I think I want to test my app on it first.
BTW, is there really such a big difference between Android 4.2.2 and 4.1.2? Does it need to be mentioned in every One/Galaxy 4 article? If Samsung shipped with Android 5.0 Keylime, then I might see the point, but not now.
Yes, there is a big difference with 4.2.2 and 4.1.2, not just the numbers, so many changes happened with 4.2 when compared to 4.1. So HTC going with 4.1 is really a bad move.
For all of this device i will chose the GALAXY S 4 is good than iPhone 5
