Photo Op: Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Optimus G, Xperia Z

During our coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S4 in New York last week, we brought with us a number of Android smartphones so we can do a side by side comparison. We had the Optimus G, the Galaxy S3, the HTC Butterfly, Xperia Z and the BlackBerry Z10.

Unfortunately, with the very limited time offered to us during the preview session, we were not able to take all side by side shots that we wanted to. Nevertheless, we’d like to share the few ones we were able to get.

The one above is the photo of the Galaxy S4 flanked by the Optimus G on the left and the Xperia Z on the right. The Galaxy S4 is as thin as the Xperia Z at 7.9mm. However, the camera on the S4 is protruding, making it thicker than the Xperia Z in that section.

The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S3, side by side. The Galaxy S3 is more rounded at the corners, the Galaxy S4 has a thinner frame and thinner bezel to accommodate the extra 0.19-inch display. Both have almost same body length and width.

The LG Optimus G is at the background with the Galaxy S4 at the foreground.That strip of silver lining around the edges is common to both.

The Galaxy S4 beside the Xperia Z. The Z looks much taller while the S4 looks more compact with both having the same 5-inch screens.

    Hello! May I ask what theme is the S3 using in the 2nd picture?

    where is HTC One?

    for me, the leading contenders for the android smartphones war for 2013 so far are HTC One, Xperia Z and of course, the Galaxy S4.

    • psikick says:

      Agreed. Pero delayed daw HTC One “indefinitely”… bad news for HTC… good news for Samsung.

    • LG Optimus G & G Pro for the best premium design awards…
      Red dot design awards and iF design awards.

      SAMSUNG THE UGLINESS…

    • THE TOP CONTENDERS ARE BOTH KOREAN PHONES

      GALAXY S4 vs. LG G Pro

      Note3 vs. LG Optimus G2./NEXUS 5.

      HTC ONE & XPERIA Z ARE OUT……..
      BOTH WEAKEST BATTERYLIFE, POOR CAMERAS……. NONE REMOVABLE BATTERY. HTC ONE NO MicroSD.

    • LG the best! says:

      LG Optimus G PRO is currently the BEST!
      impressive batterylife!
      big fully true hd ips + display
      removable battery.
      etc…etc…

      s4 copycat!
      Samsung copied G PRO’s DUAL VIDEO RECORDING,
      Q-translator,& Q-Remote .

      SA MGA NAGSASABI NA MAGKAMUKHA DAW? ANG NOTE2 AT G PRO? MGA BULAG BA SILA?

      KAHIT ANONG ANGGULO AY DI MAN LANG NAGKA PAREHO ANG DALAWA SIDE BY SIDE, FRONT & BACK.
      AT SA SIZES NG DALAWA AY TOTALLY MAGKA IBA.

      G pro is an elegant premium phone & sexier than Ugly Note2.

      THAT’S ALL…
      PAG KUMUNTRA KA? MALAMANG BINULAG KA NG PANINGIN AT PAG IISIP MO!
      PERIOD!
      LG THE BEST!

    Lol! Seriously? Do you go around telling people “oh look! I have an octocore celphone inside a PLASTIC case”

    • johnonline says:

      well, your point is? Wla naman sa article yung tungkol sa octa core ng s4..immature at iSheeps lang naman ang mahilig magshow off ng phone nila..yun lang kasi pwede nilang ipagmalaki..

    • Ey says:

      There are reasons behind why samsung chose to stick on using plastic. Besides people are using different cases nowadays so the plastic body would not be a problem.

    • Lich says:

      Plastic case is not a big deal on smartphone, its all about performance and features. As we all know that smartphone user using protective case to cover their smartphone. S4 already using gorilla glass 3 compare to other 2013 Android phones.

  7. crash says:

    pakitingnan nga po yung S4 at Z.. parang hindi naman pantay ang pagkakalagay..mas mataas ang pwesto ng S4..
