In 2013, iPhone 5S and Galaxy S4 continued to be the favourites among smartphone enthusiasts but the scenario is likely to change course next year. Despite of being tough competitors, both the devices promise good business next year.

iPhone 6 design might hide external-facing components such as the camera and flash from view using a polymer-dispersed liquid crystal window which can change opacity on demand, suggested Apple patents. As per the speculations, camera quality of the next iPhone will not be reduced. People are also looking forward to iPhone 6 as they expect better CPU resources after facing huge disappointment by the previous versions by Apple Inc.

Since Galaxy S4 runs on Googles Android operating system it gives the user flexibility to customize their phone as per their desires. Galaxy S4 offers options such as split screen multitasking along with various customization offers, which keeps it a step ahead of current iPhones.

It would be really interesting to look forward to the real battle of innovation ahead. Whether Samsung or Apple, 2014 promises to be an incredible year for smartphone fanatics.
