Now the obvious question is-Will iPhone6 be able to compete with the beast?Does Apple need to worry about Samsung Galaxy S4?I will answer ‘YES’ to both the questions.Apple are known to be the biggest innovators.They are capable to surprise the consumers with their top notch technologies.Take Siri for example.It took the smartphones to a new level.Though there was nothing fancy about Siri.But you can control your iPhone with it.Apple need something like that in their new iPhone.
When you look at Samsung’s Galaxy S4,its hardware is quite comparable to HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.One thing to watch out for is Exynos Octa processor.Apple’s iPhone5 looks outdated when compared to Galaxy S4.However,Galaxy S4′s main competitor will be iPhone6.iOS required less RAM and processor than Android for smooth functionalities.So,Apple won’t need 1.9 GHz processor and likely Apple won’t provide it also.iOS and Android are completely different and both the companies know what type of hardware is suitable for their best smart-phones.Buyers should judge the two phones only on the hardware.It will be battle of the softwares and features.
When you take a look at Samsung’s Galaxy S4′s softwares it offers nothing new.S-translator is similar to Google translator but it works good on galaxy S4.Smart scrolling is not completely smart but yet better than traditional scrolling.As far as S-health is concerned,there are lots of third party apps on Google PlayStore which also work like S-Health.However,Air-Gesture feature is really nice and pause of videos when you look away from the screen is also a good thing.
Apple is known for its innovations and we can expect something exciting from Apple.There are rumors regarding iPhone6 to have fingerprint technology.This will really boost Apple Inc. as it will take smartphone security to a new height.Also,iPhohe is likely to have 3D video call technology.Though we don’t know a lot about it but the distinctive features of this unique technology include Object Identifying, Distance Learning, Vehicle Application, Medical Application (aided by patient recognition) and Video Information Sharing. Those two features are completely new for smartphones and will definitely tempt people to buy it.However,Samsung has also added tons of exciting features in Galaxy S4 camera.You can do so much with its camera.Apple will have to improve in this area if they want to attract camera lovers.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is a good phone and it will sell well.However,Is it so good that will make Apple worry?That depends on Apple.If they only paid attention to the hardware then iPhone6 don’t stand a chance against Samsung Galaxy S4.Apple always brings something refreshing to their iPhones and I am expecting iPhone6 will be a masterpiece and a really tough competition for Samsung’s Galaxy S4.This year will turn out as a battle ground for smartphones.We already have Sony Xperia Z, HTC One,Samsung Galaxy S4 and soon to be launched iPhone6.Don’t forget,Google is going to its Mysterious Motorola X in May or June.Later this year,be prepared for nexus 5.However,the main competition will be between Samsung Galaxy S4 and Apple’s iPhone6.Which one will you buy?
