Samsung vs Apple-a world war 3 in the making

Will samsung beat the quality of apple in the future?

The above is the hardest question ever asked in technology, yet, to some it is a very easy question. The answer to this question depends on your geographical location on the globe. Apple is rather concentrated on marketing it's products in the US and West Europe; while Samsung prefers reaching out to places neglected by Apple. Take here in Zimbabwe for exam- a handful uses Apple products whilst a bunch of the population is rather comfortable with android devices like Samsung, Sony and....G-tel ;).
From our opinions, Samsung did pretty well since 2009 by increasing their market way above Apple hence forth upgrading the quality of their products. Thanks to Google for android, otherwise Samsung would have never found it's way up the ladder. However, the quality of Apple still speak out.

So if you were to buy one- iPhone 5 or Samsung galaxy s5, which one would you buy? Let us make the comparison.

With some research we did as a team, remarkably with some content on gottabemobile.com, we managed to compile the following:
Size

Size is a very big part of the smartphone design, and ultimately a very personal preference. The iPhone 5s is smaller than the Galaxy S5 in height and width, which makes it easier to use with one hand for some users. The iPhone 5s is 18.2 mm shorter and 13.9 mm narrower which is a significant difference.
•Galaxy S5 dimensions – 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm
•iPhone 5s dimensions - 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm

For users that have small hands or simply want a small phone, the iPhone 5s is a better option. There are software modes on the Galaxy S5 that let owners use the phone with one hand easier, but ultimately a smaller phone is better for some people.

Premium Design

The Galaxy S5 design is improved from previous years, but buyers that place a high premium on a smartphone’s design will likely flock to Apple’s aluminum and glass iPhone 5s design. This is the same design we saw on the iPhone 5, but this time Apple delivered a more durable coating that doesn’t show scratches as easily.

The iPhone 5s design offers metal and glass, not plastic.
Apple’s iPhone 5s design uses metal where the Galaxy S5 is made of plastic. Even a new soft touch plastic is not enough to convince some users to switch away from a metal phone. If you value a metal smartphone the iPhone 5s is a better choice, and you should look at the new HTC One M8 if you need a metal smartphone running Android.

iOS 7.1 and Updates

Samsung is improving the speed of delivering Android updates to the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3, which are 12 months and six months old, but for devices farther out updates are slower and still questionable for some models.Apple on the other hand can roll out updates to the iPhone 5s more regularly and without a carrier holding it up for testing for weeks or months after the update came out. Apple also delivers updates for several years to older devices. The iPhone 5s will likely see two more major iOS releases and possibly a third if Apple continues the current trend.

If you want timely updates that bring new features for the length of a two-year contract or a little longer Apple is still a step ahead of Samsung

Apps and Accessories

There are a growing number of companies that sell Galaxy S5 accessories, but Apple is still the king of apps and accessories from third-parties. The Galaxy S5 has a Gear Fit that will not work with the iPhone 5s, but for that one thing there are many other accessories that are designed to work with iPhone first.
From an App standpoint we often see popular apps come to the iPhone first. Boom Beach is the latest big name app to arrive on iPhone first. It will eventually move to Android, but Galaxy S5 owners will need to wait. The app situation improved dramatically in the last year, but it is still an issue that users should take note of.

To be honest, Samsung yasara after the release of iphone 6 and iPhone 6+. Iyo Samsung ngai gadzire phone inoshanda neSamsung OS to level the points coz there are just too many Samsung imitations via e android platform.
