Apple iPhone 5s vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Published: December 11, 2013

The iPhone 5s and the Galaxy Note 3 are two very different products. One is a super slim and sleek smartphone wearing an Apple badge while the other is a giant phablet device running the best hardware available. Comparing these two may seem unfair or just strange but keeping price in mind, these two are neck and neck.

The iPhone 5s features Apple's 4-inch Retina Display, a new 64-bit A7 Chip alongside a M7 Motion Co-Processor, and TouchID. The Galaxy Note 3 features a massive 5.7-inch 1080P Display, a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, and the famous S Pen for note-taking and interacting with the device. These two devices also run different software platforms.  The iPhone 5s offers iOS 7 while the Galaxy Note 3 features Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and TouchWiz.

If you let numbers decide, the Galaxy Note 3 is the clear winner but there's a lot to like on the iPhone side as well. For more, check out our video comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 versus the Apple iPhone 5s!
