The iPhone 4 and the Samsung Captivate are two amazing handsets and recipients of positive reviews. Both come with advanced features and capabilities, allowing you to enjoy an incredible user experience. With the intention of finding out which one offers the better performance I compared their specifications. Check out my findings.
In terms of design, these smartphones look amazing and are made of quality materials. The iPhone 4 is smaller and thinner than the Captivate measuring 4.5 x 2.31 x 0.37 inches and weighing 4.8 ounces. The Captivate measures 4.82 x 2.53 x 0.39 inches and weighs only 4.16 ounces. Both devices come with amazing screens able to display crisp and sharp images and text. The iPhone 4 features a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 960 x 640 pixels while the Captivate comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution. Even if the iPhone 4 manages to provide a higher resolution, the Captivate offers a larger and brighter screen that consumes less power than the iPhone’s display.
The hardware department recommends two smartphones that are each equipped with a 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM able to provide an incredible user experience. Regarding the memory available on these devices, I must say that the Captivate offers 16GB of storage and the possibility to use microSD cards of up to 32GB. On the other hand, the iPhone 4 is available in three versions with 8, 16 and 32GB of storage space, but it lacks microSD card support. When it comes to the software department, you should know that both devices run on pretty powerful operating systems. The iPhone 4 runs on iOS 4, upgradable to version 5 and comes packed with Twitter integration, TV-out, image editor and iCloud service. On the other hand, the Captivate runs on Android 2.1, upgradable to version 2.3 with the TouchWiz 3.0 UI. On this Samsung phone you will find Adobe Flash, image/video editor, SNS integration and a few preinstalled Google apps.
Another thing that you should know about these two devices is that they are equipped with a 5MP rear camera with LED flash, geo-tagging and 720p video recording capabilities. The iPhone 4 has a slight advantage thanks to its VGA front-facing camera which is designed for video calls over Wi-Fi. On both smartphones the entertainment department is well represented by well-featured media players able to support various file formats. You will also find on these two phones plenty of connectivity options including A-GPS, HTML, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G. Overall, these smartphones are great devices that are worth your attention. Depending on what you expect from your smartphone, you should now make the right decision.
