So, this is a question that many people ask themselves when it’s time to upgrade and change their phone contract. I’ve been there, I’ve tussled with the decision, and in the end I went for the switch.
Was I sorry?
Not at all.
I am a firm Samsung convert, from many years of being an iPhone girl.
Now, I don’t want to sway your decision, so we will discuss each important feature in turn, but if you’re at all unsure, I’d always say go for a change.
It’s not hard to see that the Samsung Galaxy has a much bigger screen than an iPhone, and this can be both a blessing and a curse at the same time. If you’re wanting to watch films or TV on your Samsung, then you’re more than sorted; if however you want to be able to juggle it all with one hand, you’re going to be finding yourself a little unstuck. The iPhone is easier to handle without a doubt, but a smaller screen isn’t so great for viewing photos or watching TV. It’s all dependent on what you can handle, but you do get used to the size.
It’s easy to see that you can take the battery out of a Samsung and change it in the event of a problem, but you can’t with an iPhone, and you have to send it off to be fixed, which is of course costly. A point for the Samsung here.
Whilst the camera quality has come on leaps and bounds with more recent models of iPhone, the Samsung camera is infinitely better. I noticed a major difference with my photos since swapping, and the zoom feature is fantastic. I have actually sold my digital camera since I got my Samsung, and I now use my phone camera as my only one; that speaks volume.
When you initially buy your iPhone, you have to decide whether you want 8gb, 16gb, or 32gb, right? The price obviously differs depending on the size of memory you want. With a Samsung you don’t do this, you simply buy your phone and then you add an SD memory card of your preferred size. Does this make a difference? It could do cost-wise, but it’s splitting hairs to be honest.
Whilst Android apps are very close to Apple’s range, this is probably where the iPhone wins major points. The range of apps on the Apple Store is huge and continues to grow.
Which one wins? It really does depend on preference because there’s no major differences in terms of performance in my opinion. I wouldn’t go back to an iPhone now I’ve had my Samsung, and the one major thing that keeps me with Samsung is the camera.
Are you a Samsung girl, or are you an Apple girl?
