Google Nexus 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S4 Google
Top 13 Reasons for the
Google Nexus 5
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S4 Google
Faster CPU clock speed
4 x 2.3 GHz
4 x 1.9 GHz
21.05% faster CPU clock speed
Modestly higher pixel density
0.91% higher pixel density
Every pixel has three subpixels
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
Significantly more internal storage
16 GB more internal storage
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Appreciably higher maximum light sensitivity
4x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Significantly faster Internet browser (Browsermark 2.0)
23.50% faster Internet browser (Browsermark 2.0)
Is a SlimPort device
With SlimPort you can view HD content on a TV or monitor, by connecting it to the devices micro USB port.
A little narrower
0.63 mm narrower
Google Nexus 5 is better than Samsung Galaxy S4 Google because...
Top 14 Reasons for the
Samsung Galaxy S4 Google
Compared to Google Nexus 5
More battery power
13.04% more battery power
A bit bigger screen size
1.01% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Notably more megapixels (photo)
1.63x more megapixels (photo)
Has an external memory slot
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
Vastly more megapixel (photo, front camera)
1.54x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Has a removable battery
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
A bit thinner
0.69 mm thinner
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
ANT+ is a wireless protocol similar to Bluetooth Smart, and is very power efficient. It is mainly used for fitness monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors and cadence sensors to connect to other devices, eg. sports watches, smartphones and cycling computers.
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Somewhat less body volume
8.74% less body volume
A little bit shorter
1.24 mm shorter
