The New York Times recently compared the iPhone 5s to the Galaxy S5 and determined that it beat the Galaxy S5 by 'just about every major measure you'll care about'.

How does the Galaxy S5 compare to the iPhone 5S, Apple’s six-month-old flagship device and the champion to beat?
The answer: Not very well. I’ve been using the new Samsung for about three weeks, and while I do think it is the best Android phone you can buy, it sure isn’t the best phone on the market. By just about every major measure you’ll care about, from speed to design to ease of use to the quality of its apps, Samsung’s phone ranks behind the iPhone, sometimes far behind. If you’re looking for the best phone on the market right now, I’d recommend going with the iPhone 5S.

Everything apple and Samsung are fighting over, Nokia 1520 already has: Last February I bought this mobile and I was immediately impressed both by its size, but especially by the quality both hardware and software. It has 32 GB of expandable memory up to 128GB (although nokia recommended max. 64GB ) , 2GB of RAM, but above all the fantastic camera of 20 megapixel Zeiss pure view that really takes incredible beautiful pictures. I tried in all kind of light conditions and I must say that the photos are absolutely sharp, bright and with beautiful vivid colors . Above all, I was amazed by pictures taken with flash in low light , the autofocus does a wonderful job and the pictures are without any noise. Another highlight is the battery, even with tough days made ​​of whatsapp , sms , wifi , calls, continuous listening to the nokia mix radio and a few games (fifa 14 the most used), the phone still comes to evening with 30-35% . With a quieter but use with wifi always on I arrived at 3 days almost 4, No need for hassle with cables, just pop your device on a wireless charger, and it immediately starts charging.. For those who are afraid of its size or weight , I can tell that the phone is so well balanced that seems less heavy than many phones that weigh a 30 gr. less . Finally I have to say that surfing internet or watch a video on you tube is absolutely a unique experience than what they offer mobile phones with smaller screen. When you have tried it you will see other phones like something very small and uncomfortable . In the last days I've updated the mobile to windows phone 8.1 and I have to say that the software has reached a great maturity and those who still complain than Android or IOS are still the, maybe they should try a go with windowphone software

That's why more people talk about how good and the bad either are, but nokilla is what's ugly, that's how everything is sorted out, depends on os, what is does, and what it supports. 1. The os is not really consistent on every phone, colors are different depending on the carrier, I'm sure when we switch we'll have fun getting used to different looks, I'm sure that will go well, as far as organization is, same shit, but at least it has multitasking but as for infection, good luck with that. 2. It has up to 40mp just to sharpen everything without needing the autofocus, but when the camera comes to taking a picture, needing memory couldn't be much to ask for. Why not do it iPhones way, take up to 4 quick photos and merge them to reduce blur without more megapixels, as for light sensitivity iPhone works as good as the lumpia but that's all it offers for a decent camera, for battery, speed, etc., just terrible. Windows 8 was the worst release for any user I just feel sorry. Longest loading as much as 3GS does, in face lumpia is like the 3GS in every way. 3. How all this adds up, it could be running the os that many are used to, maybe 7 since 8 is vistas brother. Hey lumpia kid, have you ever looked back at the pattern of how the windows 1-8 systems are organized in a pattern of "good, shit, good, shit" and so forth, well that means the odd ones are good, even ones are bad, just search 'windows good shit' and there's your dill gates trying. Say what about the surfish? Been rated "best" yet? Don't bother, we know truth hurts.

I can tell you are envy of Nokia Man, you wish your iShit could do only half of the things that Nokia 1520 does, apple will pretty soon copy all that. And don't forget if it weren't for Bill Gates there wouldn't be Apple. So in way you wouldn't exist either. Just look it up in amazon $500 and it's three times more better things than your iShit. I threw my iShit in the garbage( it's not worth even selling) and bought me a Nokia 1520 with 128gb, isn't this what you guys are askink Thief Jobs from the begining, 20mp camera, wireless charge, double flash, xtreme speakers, 4 mics, battery for days. Go a get take a pick you iShit.

We all know you envy reality as you continue to give your hopes up any longer, you can keep praying for your galashit to try to be iPhone or the lumpia which can't even figure out what's eating memory up just like min drape eating your s brain. Lumpia does half the thing the I superior can. What would apple copy if iPhone has been out for years, boretana just coming out proves it. Siri has been out for 3 years, get your shit straight and off cocaine. You're not even worth believing, the cheaper the phone the less the specs, higher prices gives you more, why else did Mac Pro used for much creativity sell so high, well it's high enough to beat the puny small honored wannabe gaylaxy alright. Who wants a lumpia anyway, why have a random colored malware magnetized os like they ruined the environment and explain no new gesture (doubt it fcking worked out). What dill gates didn't ask for was a second chance, where is he now after balmer gave up, did he even give a shit in the first place just bringing his delusioned ass in microjunk after someone else bought it? 8mp camera with the photo merge sharp trick, 3d view in maps, case for NFC, true tone flash that corrects color, bass beating speakers, dual macs to reduce background noise is what enough is as if you're full, keep scraping up shit galashit.
