As you may see that Samsung and Apple have improved just hardware and software with new devices, however Samsung introduced so many new apps with the Galaxy S4 and tried to make it a full-fledge companion for your life. While BlackBerry and Nokia have tried to introduce a completely new smartphone.
We should not ignore the app capacity, the Google Play Store is flooded with almost 750,000 apps, the Apple App Store offers similar amount of apps, however BlackBerry App World and Windows Phone App store aren’t able to offer a large amount of apps, the Windows Phone App store offers almost 100,000 apps and on the other hand BlackBerry App World shines with almost 300,000 apps.
So which one do you love to buy? If you ask from me, it’s all about personal choice as everyone has their own motive, however if you’re looking for a superfast phone with a lot of customization options and apps, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is what, you’re looking for. The Nokia Lumia 920 is impressive because of pure-view photography as there’s no blur to disturb your photos, it includes MS office, it’s suitable for those of you who want a something hugely different and plain huge. The iPhone 5 is suitable for those of you who lobe very fluent (albeit closed) OS (iOS), the BlackBerry Z10 also packs a nice bunch of specs and available with a bit low price tag.
