The Galaxy S4 is one of the hottest smartphones on the planet and it’s certainly one of our top choices for an Android handset right now. If you’re in the market for a brand new smartphone, there are a lot of options to consider, especially the phone’s operating system. The Galaxy S4, as you probably know, runs Android while the iPhone 5 runs iOS 7. Both operating system have their pros and cons.
The two phones are drastically different: Samsung’s offers a generous 5-inch Super AMOLED display while the iPhone 5S has a much smaller 4-inch screen. The Galaxy S4 has both removable storage and a removable battery while the iPhone 5S does not. But the iPhone 5S is made out of aluminum and glass while the Galaxy S4 is crafted from plastic. So, as you can see, the two phones are very, very different products.
We’ve created the table below to help you better understand the differences in hardware.
