Phone died, which should I buy?

Jan 5, 2017 3:36PM PST

Hello, my Samsung S3 neo died recently and I didn't know if I should buy the motorola moto G4 or a samsung galaxy S5, they're the same price where I live so that's no reason to choose one over another. I would like to know which I should buy, feel free to talk in depth about it as I understand most of the technical terms. thanks in advance to everyone!

Here's how I google that.

I've googled that and went over every spec, the issue I had was: do I go for higher clock or mpre cores? Amoled display or bigger screen? The G4 has fast charge and a newer amdroid version, but the S5 has all those samsung goodies I'm used to have (mainly touchwiz), in terms of camera it's a 50/50 because if I need to take photos I have a professional camera (although I don't carry it everywhere). I think I'll go for a G4 since I'm going for more of a budget phone before I hop into the big ones later this year.

GHz is not a measure of speed.

Same for cores. You need to check out benchmarks but for most folk any 1+GHz dual core with the specs is fine. It's not like you'll be running NSA cracking software on this.
