In 2012 we are due to see the release of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5, two premium smartphones that look set to become a success with consumers everywhere. These models will boast some superb features and specification but will be two of the more expensive devices available. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to these new phones then two of the original models are still available. We take a look at the iPhone 4 8G and the Samsung Galaxy S and see what screen technology and processing power is on offer from these two devices.
The iPhone 4 8GB is the first Apple phone to incorporate the famous retina display. This 3.5 inch LED backlit screen displays an incredible resolution of 640 x 960 pixels which means that the phone offers a pixel density of 326PPI. This is where the Retina name comes from as it is reported that this level exceeds what the human eye can detect. The screen on the phone measures 3.5 inches which means that it is one of the smaller phones available which may disappoint some consumers who are looking to use the model for video playback and gaming. It really is difficult to fault the quality of the display, images maintain a high level of detail and colours are reproduced accurately. The Samsung Galaxy S uses a larger 4.3 inch display that uses Super AMOLED technology to produce a vivid image that really is hard to beat. In terms of resolution however the model is lower than the 4S 8GB at 480 x 800 which equates to a pixel density of just 217PPI. When all is said and done there is very little to choose between the two models in this department. The iPhone undoubtedly offers the quality but the Samsung screen is larger and also offers what can be described as a more vivid and colourful display.
The iPhone 4 8GB and the Samsung Galaxy S are also well matched when we take a look at the camera features that are incorporated on both models. The iPhone uses a 5 mega pixel camera that is capable of capturing a high quality of image. The model includes an LED flash which is a feature that is sadly missing on the Samsung Galaxy S. This means that the Apple phone is better suited for capturing photographs in situations with low light levels. A secondary camera is included on the model which enables the use of the new Facetime video calling feature and can also capture images at VGA quality. The Samsung offers the same 5 mega pixel resolution from its main camera. In terms of video capture both model can record HD footage at 720P resolution which means that video looks great when displayed on the phones screen or when transferred to a larger television or computer monitor.
If you are looking for a high quality smartphone but do not mind choosing a model that is a little older than many new handset then you will find the iPhone 4 8GB and the Samsung Galaxy S hard to beat. Both devices incorporate a high quality display and excellent multi media feature for capturing photographs and video footage.
The iPhone 4 8GB is available now and the Samsung Galaxy S3 is coming soon.
