11 Things Samsung's Galaxy S4 Can Do That The iPhone 5S Can't (GOOG, AAPL)


Samsung Galaxy S4

Apple's newest top iPhone, the iPhone 5S, has arrived. 

Early reviews have been really, really good, but how does the 5S stand up against its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S4.

There are actually a bunch of things Samsung's phone can do that the iPhone 5S can't. Take a look.

It has a built-in infrared blaster that can be used as a universal remote to control your TV. (The IR blaster is that little black dot at the top of the phone.) The phone also has a special app that pulls in data from your cable or satellite provider and can suggest shows you may like to watch.

It has a near field communication (NFC) chip that lets your phone talk to other devices with NFC. This means you can use your phone to make mobile payments, swap content like photos between phones just by tapping them together, or pair your phone with a stereo with a tap.

You can add extra storage to your Galaxy S4 if you insert a standard Micro SD card. They're pretty cheap too. You can add an extra 32 GB of storage for about $20.
