Power or balance?? Unique features or popularity?? Wide Format or device? Lighter? No doubt that when put face to face Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and iPhone 5 are a number of differences that separate them greatly.
However, that does not mean that the reference terminals are two of the biggest names in the industry-and indeed, the leading manufacturers of smartphones – so that the confrontation is necessary if it is to consider the opportunity to purchase the most interesting phone market. Given this, it is more than possible that the potential of either have to take into account a number of considerations when comparing them. Let’s look at what are the key points in this regard.
Design and Display
From the outset, both teams are notable for their design. UNO powerful proportions, another by its thinness and new format . The first is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the phone with the biggest screen on the market, no less than 5.5 inches that let you view content in high definition . The second is the iPhone 5, a terminal lightweight -only 112 grams – and very thin – 7.6 mm -, and is the first mobile phone from Apple that far exceeds 3.5 inches in its panel, reaching four inches .
The decision here is whether we want to be generous terminal screen and if thereby we do not mind sacrificing some versatility. On the other hand, consider also the section of the materials used in building the team. Some people criticized the setting of the South Korean Samsung with plastic housing. In this case, it comes with a glossy polyurethane, while it may not be as attractive as an aesthetic anodized aluminum iPhone 5 , although of course it is risky to take interest in Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in this sense, yes Resist that is in daily use: there are many users who have already criticized the sensitivity of the outer cover of the Apple phone , which suffers the presence of scratches very easily.
No question: the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sweeps the iPhone in this section . It, along with its little brother, the Samsung Galaxy S3, the most comprehensive phone market as connections are concerned.Not only have some of the key points of any smartphone , but also committed a number of extras that raise the interest of the device. And is that in addition to 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or microUSB port , theSamsung Galaxy Note 2 offers NFC and, if it has support in the country of use, network access 4Gthrough LTE . It also gives the option to launch a high-definition signal using an adapter MHL output connected to microUSB .
As for the iPhone 5, her profile is quite complete, but has some problems. Some will reproach him Applehas not been released to integrate technology NFC or has limited the use of the new standard LTE at frequencies veto literally almost all European users the ability to use this connectivity. But saving that, theiPhone 5 is still showing some problems. The highlight is the presence of Lightning , the new proprietary connector that despite being faster and easier to use-allows bidirectional connection, without limiting to a single hitch-position, has the problem of not being compatible with the previous port, the 30-pin dock -in many cases, even using an adapter.
Multimedia and Camera
More points for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 . The high-end phone from South Korea is virtually compatible with all video formats, audio and image that we want to play in the terminal. But not only that.Without going into the possibilities associated with the fact include a fixture , the S Pen , with which you can access functions that are not available on any other team, we can say that the power and muscle that throws the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 allows, among other things, play HD video in a floating window while running other tasks simultaneously.
In this sense, Apple is putting the tide, limiting the entire multimedia experience, first, the criterion of this guardian is known as iTunes . Again, everything must go through the filter-bridge desktop application developed by those in Cupertino . In general, we have no problem playing music to your computer, but with the video you have more complicated. Drawing on converters could put him on film and video formats such as DivX or MKV to iPhone 5 , but the process is much more cumbersome than simply dragging the file from the computer to the phone memory, as with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 .
Regarding the cameras, the results obtained with a new unit and are quite similar. In both cases we came across a sensor Sony can capture high-quality photos of eight megapixels , and videos in FullHD . AnLED flash comes with the unit in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5 . If we analyze the type of lenses as the phone of Apple , we know that have used sapphire glass for construction, which in principle are very bright and provide excellent results. But only in principle: these days than a few users reported that their handsets captured in your photos, a purple flash visible, although it may be very aesthetic in some cases, is always unexpected. Apple argues that this is normal, without posing any solutions to the problem.
Processor, memory system and
It should be a couple of considerations in this section. On the one hand, in strictly technical terms,Samsung has equipped its terminal market more powerful unit, the Exynos 4 Quad developing a frequency of 1.6 GHz basing it on a quad-core architecture . The A6 ‘s iPhone 5 chip is a dual corethat while Apple has not officially declared, it achieves an output of 1.3 GHz . Nevertheless, at this point stands the controversy about whether the technique should be to service integration with your team, or should be in the opposite direction.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5 premiere platform , and would have developed to run natively, with their systems. In the case of mobile Samsung is not the first mobile that we work with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , but it is the only one so far in the phone market, which has been on sale since its premiere run with that version system . A similar case we find the iPhone 5 . Thus, the two phones come to play in the same league in which similar conditions, meaning the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as the more powerful of the two, though the benefits of integration iPhone 5 with iOS 6 is even more specific.
Regarding the internal memory that equip each device, it should be noted that the possibility of extending the internal capacity that makes the difference. Both phones are available in 16, 32 and 64 GB of internal memory, but only the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to install units up to 64 GB microSD . In practice, the terminal Samsung could have up to 128 GB of storage depth in total.
And back to attend an important step between the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5. While the phone from Apple is capable of supporting work sessions in use eight hours-in-use and just over nine days-in idle. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 , on the other hand, uses a super battery of no less than 3100 milliamps , with an autonomy is reached, fully loaded, e etween 16 hours-in-use and five weeks resposo-in . In both cases, we expect that the phone keeps active data network.
We return to the initial argument. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and iPhone 5 are very different phones, but bear a number of similarities that make market counterparts. They are the high-end of the leading manufacturers in this segment, have wider screens from their respective catalogs and keep similar prices, starting from the 660 and 680 euros to 880 euros, depending on the version you choose.
If we are looking for power, a complete palette of functions, remember that the presence of S Pen reserves exclusive applications oriented to productivity, creativity, organization and management, multitasking, a format more than generous and multimedia potential very solvent, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 should be our choice . In contrast, e l iPhone 5 is prescribed for die hard fans of Apple computers attractive, being lighter and handier, while seamlessly integrates with the rest of the family household devices.
