This comparison finds the Samsung Galaxy S5 facing the Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM. The Galaxy S5 comes bearing Google’s Android operating system, and it’s one of the best choices for this OS, just like the 630 is one of the best choices for Windows Phone, the operating system that it runs.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the successful follow-up of the also-successful Samsung Galaxy S4 from last year. The device was released in 2014 and packs quite a punch.
Design and Display
The handset is lighter than previous models and comes with a fingerprint scanner recognized by PayPal. It also has the IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. The phone’s display is a large 5.1 inch screen with extra protection from the included Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The display has a high 432 ppi pixel density.
The processor on duty is a quad core chip clocked at 2.5 GHz, and it is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. The internal memory options are 16 and 32 GB, but you also get cloud storage with the device, 50 GB to be more specific. The camera is one of its strong points, with many features such as the dual shot function or the simultaneous video and image capturing feature that operates in HD. There is also geo tagging available on the device. The device comes with support for ANT+ which brings features like Smart Stay to the table.
Nokia Lumia 630
The Lumia 630 uses Windows Phone, unlike the Galaxy S5 which runs on Android. Also, the Lumia 630 lacks connectivity to 4G networks, something you won’t have to worry about with the Galaxy S5.
Design and Display
With 134 grams onboard, the device is lighter than the Galaxy S5 and uses a the Clear Black technology for its 4.8 inch display IPS LCD, which is slightly smaller than the S5 unit, but still very large. Just like Samsung’s smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 620 features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection.
There is an LED –equipped camera on the rear of the device but it only has 5 MP. The processing unit is a quad core model, and along with the included 512 MB of RAM it takes care of your phone’s processes. Aside from a smaller camera and smaller RAM capacity, it also features a small internal storage capacity. Powering all these components is the 1830 mAh battery.
In the end it seems that the only reason you should pick the Lumia 630 instead of the Galaxy S5 is if you were on a budget. If you have the money to spend, getting the S5 is clearly the wiser choice.
The S5 is available on Amazon.com for about $526 while the Lumia 630 is around $150.
