Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 vs iPod Touch 4 Which one should you get?
Samsung has released its multimedia player gadget in the form of Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0. The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 (not to be confused with Samsung Galaxy S smartphone) is Samsung’s version of Apple’s iPod Touch 4G with perhaps better functionality and more user-value friendly.
Although it is undeniably true that Apple was the first one to create iPod many years ago. And since then portable MP3 players were revolutionized and greatly improved. Apple’s latest MP3 player is the iPod Touch 4G and has been greatly improved as compared to its predecessors.
However, Samsung has also ventured into MP3 gadgets and they have unleashed the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 and 4.0 (the later is smaller in terms of size and dimension). Now let’s take a look on how does the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 fair with Apple’s iPod Touch 4G. Below is a comparison of their technical specifications.

The specifications above are not detailed. I did not include the other details but clearly in the technical specifications above you will have an idea which is the better gadget. Below are photos of Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5 and iPod Touch 4 for your reference. Click on the image for a larger view.
So now, which one do you think is for you? I’m not really an Apple fanboy or an Android fanboy. What is important for me and my determining factor in choosing a gadget are functionality, features, performance and price. I do not have biases in brand. Well, that’s just me and my own personal opinion.
Further here are my reasons why I think Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 is a better option than Apple iPod Touch 4G.
- Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 has better camera
- Has Camera flash
- More functionality and buttons
- Has GPS and FM tuner
- Memory expandable through microSD
- Bigger display 5″ compared to 3.5″
- Rapidly increasing android apps to choose from
- Longer battery life
However these are the areas where I think the Apple iPod Touch 4G is a winner.
- iPod Touch 4G looks and feels better
- Although smaller in display size it has better screen resolution (see specs above)
So what do you think? Given the chance of choosing between the two, which one would you get? Hit your comments below. ^_^
