This well-established company had launched an app in the first quarter of this year called Basemark OS 2 which is a cross-platform app which helps to compare the Smartphones performance according to it’s OS support . It has been differently coded so that it can collect accurate benchmark results from different OS powered Smartphones.

In this situation , we are going to compare  the benchmark scores of iOS powered phones and Android powered Smartphones.

We are choosing two old released Smartphones for this comparison – 1. LG Nexus 5 (Android Powered) 2. Iphone 5 S (iOS Powered )

Nexus 5 priced at 34,000 INR (32 GB model) , with True HD IPS+ capacitive touchscreen and 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution comes with a 2 GB RAM and Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 Processor . And on the other side I phone 5S priced at a very high price of 59,000 INR ( Gold version with 32 Gb memory space ) , with LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen and 640 x 1136 pixels resolution  comes with a 1 GB RAM Dual-core 1.3 GHz Cyclone Processor .


Now let’s check their benchmarks :


Ofcourse there is no doubt that you are going to get a great experience far better than I phone 5 S , some say that iOS phones just have better quality in it , but Nexus 5 will last as much as an I Phone 5 S will last. The Benchmarks are given by the app according to it’s System,Memory,Graphics and webscores . So you are quite intelligent that you can decide which is worth it’s price ? ? It’s obviously not just for India , outside India too Price matters and that’s a universal fact .

I hope that it will help you to decide a better Smartphone ! We will be back with more recent released comparisons which will include Windows Powered phone , iOS phones and Android Phones .

  1. Android phones of LG are great..unlike Samsung,they arent Overrated!!! iPhones are pricey becoz, The output of iPhone can match 10 times of any Android phones.. for exp:I had iPhone 3gs which had 256MB RAM in which i played GTA Vice City and FIFA 13 etc, while one needed a minimum of 1 GB RAM incase of an Android phone…
