The wait comes to an end here as Samsung announces its latest smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S4 in New York. At the same time, with Samsung Galaxy S4's launch in the U.S., BlackBerry's BlackBerry Z10 also entered the U.S. market.
Both the companies have put a lot of hope in their latest products. Samsung, with its Galaxy S4, will try to bring down the market of its arch rival Apple; whereas the company previously known as Research In Motion (RIM) will try to revive its image in the big American mobile market.
Here we tell you where the BlackBerry Z10 gains an upper hand over Samsung's Galaxy S4 and where all the Samsung's latest smartphone wins over the Canadian product.
Display: This is the area where Samsung has really done a lot to improve its image and the hard work does show in Samsung Galaxy S4. The S4 comes with a 4.99-inch full HD SUPER AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080x1920 pixel. The BlackBerry Z10 lacks the SUPER AMOLED technology and some centimeters in the display size too. The Z10 sports a 4.2-inch capacitive touch screen with 768x1280 pixel. Samsung beats BlackBerry Z10 completely in this area over the pixel density as it comes with ~441 ppi pixel density whereas BlackBerry Z10 has only ~355 ppi pixel density.
Processor: The powerhouse of a smartphone always rests in processor. Samsung Galaxy S4 is powered by an eight-core Exynos 5 chipset clocked at 1.6 GHz supported by a 2 GB of RAM, but the U.S. buyers will get Qualcomm's quad-core Sanpdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.9 GHz. The BlackBerry Z10 comes with Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz supported by a 2 GB of RAM.
Camera: This a battle ground where BlackBerry loses it with a huge margin. The BlackBerry Z10 comes with an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash light whereas Samsung Galaxy S4 camera goes way ahead of BlackBerry and stops at 13 megapixel. However, as far as the front-facing camera is concerned, BB Z10 and Galaxy S4 both sport 2 megapixel cameras.
For Samsung the camera options doesn't end with just taking a picture, the South Korean company also offers an options first of its kind that allows users to use both the camera at the same time with a picture-in-picture or a split screen format.
OS: The BlackBerry Z10 runs BlackBerry's latest BB 10 operating system. Being a new operating system may have its own teething problem. At the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S4 will run the reliable and tested Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The Galaxy S4 can be upgraded to Android's future versions whenever they are rolled out officially.
Storage: Here come the point that makes you worried when you want to store your pictures, videos and music files. Samsung Galaxy S4 will come in 16/32/64 GB internal memory versions; the phone will also have a microSD slot that supports a card up to 64 GB. The BlackBerry Z10 comes only with 16 GB internal memory and the external memory slot of the phone supports a microSD card of up to 64 GB.
