Apples and pears - the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5 are different sizes and I believe they take aim at different markets; they also have different finishes which is often a very personal thing.

If you were to just look at the hardware, then the S4 is superior to the iPhone 5 but that's not really the point.
