iPhone or Android? Which Smartphone is Best For You?
To make your decision easier, we’ve rounded up the top 3 phones out there – the iPhone 5, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 – picking out the distinguishing features of each so you can find your perfect fit.
If you want a great screen display, your best options are the HTC One or the Samsung Galaxy S4 which offer full HD resolution and significantly larger screen sizes than the iPhone 5. The pixel densities on these guys are extremely high, 469ppi and 441ppi respectively. This compares to the iPhone 5’s 326ppi.
The iPhone has always been known for its superior camera quality, yet the competition in this category is heating up. If you’re big on the quality of your photos, the Samsung Galaxy S4 may be your best bet. Compared to the 4 MP of the HTC One and the 8 MP of the iPhone 5, the S4 boasts a 13 MP camera.
The iPhone takes this category home, weighing just 112 grams compared to the 130 grams of the S4 and the 143 grams of the HTC One. This, of course, also relates back to the actual size of the phone as well as the screen size.
In the general battle between the Android vs Apple application offerings, iPhone is still the preferable choice being that developers tend to make apps for the iPhone first. In other words, if you’re looking for the best applications and content, the iPhone 5 is still the best choice.
The Android operating system was designed to allow more user customization; however, this also makes it harder for some to navigate. For those who prefer customization, you’re better off with the HTC One or the Galaxy S4. If you prefer a simple, easy system, you’ll want to go with the iPhone 5.
Apple has always taken great pride in the build quality of their devices and the iPhone 5 follows suit. Built of metal and glass, the iPhone 5 is a superior option to the plastic design of the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.
While we haven’t run a test on this one, we can assume that the Galaxy S4 is the best choice in this category given its 2600mAh battery that tops the iPhone’s 1440mAh battery and the HTC One’s 2300mAh battery.
Overall, the type of phone you choose is highly dependent on what’s important to you when it comes to daily usage. The great news is - all three of these phones feature Bluetooth 4.0 and can be connected wirelessly with any Braven speaker.
