The next few months will see a battle between popular smartphone brands intensify. We will see the Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. Moto X Phone when the latter handset reveals full specs in detail, and both of these phones will take on the Apple iPhone 5S or 6 when it launches within the next 2 months.
We could also see the Galaxy S4 vs. iPhone 5 in a new cheap version, which would be a twist on the previous comparisons, especially where the price is concerned. The cost is also going to be a major point for some people and this is exactly what an article on Forbes has touched on.
Now that we are in the second half of 2013 and moving towards the busy shopping season, it seems that price will be a vital point along with the competition between brands increasing in the fight for your custom.
The Moto X Phone has already been in the hands of Google’s chairman and a number of photos revealing the Moto X in Eric Schmidt’s hands made some people a little jealous. You can see all the hands-on photos with Google’s Moto X Phone in their article.
Back to Forbes, you can see in their article that they feel strongly about the Samsung Galaxy S4 reducing its price to compete with the upcoming iPhone 5S and Moto X Phone. The author makes it clear that a price war is coming, but in our opinion the plastic iPhone 5 with a cheaper price point is almost certain considering the range of leaks.
It will be interesting to see how this cheap iPhone 5 competes with the range of Galaxy S4 models and their price points, although Apple will need to get the specs up to scratch even with a cheaper price.
With Google investing hundreds of millions into the Moto X Phone, this will have an impact on Apple’s launch plans and Samsung’s aim for smartphone feature dominance, but we highly doubt any phone could stop Apple’s iPhone 5S if it launches with some vital changes. This is especially true for the extremely loyal Apple fans, and there are millions of them in many countries.
For those of our readers considering to purchase a new smartphone this year: will you be leaning towards the Moto X Phone, a version of the Galaxy S4, the new iPhone 5S or even a cheaper iPhone 5 potentially featuring a plastic back cover?
