Comparative Review of Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy S4
When it comes to design, these two phones look quite alike. While S3 has dimensions of 137 x 71 x 8.6 mm and weighs 133 g, it only has a 4.8 in screen, while S4 with its 137 x 70 x 7.9 and the weight of 130 g has a 5 inch display. Both of the phones have been criticized because of their plastic casings, but they are still quite sturdy and resistant to damage. While there are minor differences in the appearance of the phone, they are hardly of any major importance to a potential buyer. They both have the removable rear cover, which gives you a nice and easy access to the battery.
Both phones come in versions with 16, 32 or 64 GB of available internal storage, but since they both use microSD memory cards, the versions with larger storage sizes were never all that popular, as buying a memory card is a much cheaper way to upgrade your storage capacity than opting for the phone with larger internal memory. S3 uses a quad-core Exynos 1.4 GHz processor and holds 1 GB of RAM memory, while S4 can boast a quad-core Snapdragon 600 1.9GHz CPU, with 2 GB RAM. Although the numbers seem to be indicating processors of similar quality, the difference in the generations of these CPUs are more than obvious, with Snapdragon 600 obviously being the superior one in every regard. However, even S3’s CPU will suffice for just about anything that you may want to do with your phone.
Both phones sport a Super AMOLED display, but S4’s holds 1080 pixels, while the S3 only offered 720. While S3 has an 8 MP rear and 1.9 MP front camera, S4 comes with a 13 MP rear and 2 MP front camera. Both phones have LED flash.
Even though there were some differences in the beginning, S3 managed to catch up to S4 when it comes to software issues. They can both run the latest Android, and even though one of the strengths of S4 was the fact that it came packed with numerous interesting apps, S3 manages to work with most of them. Naturally, these phones come with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface which brings a host of useful features.
