5 Ways The Galaxy S4 Makes the iPhone 5 Look Ancient

  • MORE

Most people have at least one piece of old technology they use, despite more advanced alternatives. Many still like shooting pictures with film cameras and, the other day, I saw a hipster sitting in the park clacking away on a manual typewriter. If you're into nostalgia tech or just fear new things, Apple's iPhone 5 is a great choice, because its user interface harkens back to 2007, while its hardware offers the best features of 2011.

If you want the latest and greatest that the mobile technology industry has to offer, on the other hand, get a high-end Android phone like the just-announced Samsung Galaxy S4. Moving from an iPhone 5 to a Galaxy S4 in 2013 is like the improvement my family experienced going from a rotary princess phone to a wireless handset in 1983. Here are five ways that the Galaxy S4 makes the iPhone 5 look years out of date.
