Samsung today launched its flagship Galaxy smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy S5 with a fingerprint sensor, a heart-rate monitor, water and dust resistant body, and more. The device comes with powerful specs, as you’d expect from Samsung, with a 2.5GHz quad-code processor, 2GB or RAM, a 16MP camera and more.

So how does the Galaxy S5 stack against the iPhone 5s in terms of specs? Here’s a spec-by-spec comparison of the flagship smartphones from two of the most successful smartphone companies in the world. Samsung is known to pack in the most powerful specs in its devices, while Apple’s strong suit is providing the best user experience, even with less powerful hardware.



We still have to wait for the reviews of the Galaxy S5, but from the specs alone, it’s quite clear that Samsung takes the crown. Of course, there’s a lot more to a smartphone than its tech specs, so the final decision to buy also depends on the quality of apps, accessories etc.

The Galaxy S5 launches on April 11, and its real competition won’t be the iPhone 5s, but the iPhone 6, which will be launched later this year.
