Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5 Infographic

The recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to go head-to-head with the Apple iPhone 5 to battle for smartphone supremacy.

With the Samsung Galaxy S3 currently settled very comfortably in the market’s top spot, the Samsung Galaxy S4, with its upgraded graphics and raft of new features, should be set to slide neatly into its place.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was launched last night in New York at a dedicated Samsung Unpacked event. It will pack a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen offering a 1920 x 1080p resolution and an image density of 441pixels-per-inch, far better than the iPhone 5’s Retina Display. Samsung has worked hard to provide innovative new camera functions to compliment its 13-megapixel snapper in the rear and the 2-megapixel front-facing snapper. Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, the Samsung Galaxy S4 implements the latest interaction of the Samsung TouchWiz UI, including non-contact technologies Air Gesture and Air View.

However, has the Samsung Galaxy S4 done enough to maintain that market lead over its Apple rival? We’ve created an infographic to provide you with all the need to know stats on the top two smartphone handsets.
