The iPhone 4 Compared To The Samsung Galaxy R – Which Comes Out On Top?

The Samsung Galaxy R is one of the newer handsets in Samsung’s popular Galaxy smartphone range. It offers a number of impressive features, and the handset is stylish. In this article I will put it against the iconic iPhone 4 by Apple, to see which comes out on top.

Aesthetically, a lot is similar between the Samsung galaxy R and the iPhone 4. They both have a black colour scheme with rounded corners and slim profile, with the major difference being in size, with the Samsung handset being a few millimetres wider to accommodate the larger screen.

The SC-LCD capacitive touchscreen of the Samsung Galaxy R measures up at 4.2 inches, so it is relatively larger than the 3.5 inch LED-backlit TFT capacitive touchscreen of the iPhone 4. What the latter lacks in size it certainly makes up for with its resolution. At 640x 960, it offers a resolution beaten only by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note. The Samsung Galaxy R has a screen resolution of 480x 800 which seems to be the industry standard at the moment. In terms of the screen, the iPhone 4 wins, but if you want a larger screen, you may prefer the Galaxy R.

The iPhone 4, as with previous iPhone versions is available in 8, 16 and 32 GB models. The Samsung Galaxy R only has 8 GB of internal storage, but it also comes with a built in microSD slot. This can comfortably house a memory card of up to 32 GB, increasing the available storage substantially. In terms of the storage, it would be cost effective to choose the Samsung handset and simply utilise the micro SD slot, however this issue is unlikely to concern the majority of potential consumers.

The camera is one of the most important aspects of a smartphone for many, when choosing their latest handset. Both the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy R have decent cameras which are evenly matched for the most part. Both operate at 5 megapixels (2592x 1944 resolution), and offer autofocus, LED flash and 720p video calling. There is not really much to separate the two as camera phones, as each one has the tools to produce good results whilst remaining easy to use.

Operating System
Arguably the biggest difference between the two is the operating system. The iPhone 4 obviously runs the iOS platform which is exclusive to Apple devices, and has the familiar icon layout along with other perks like the AppStore, iTunes and iPod functionality. The Samsung Galaxy R has the increasingly popular Android (v2.3) OS as its platform of choice. This comes with Android Market for downloadable apps, and is highly customisable. Android handsets are becoming increasingly popular, and many are choosing to convert to this platform from iOS devices. The operating system is the biggest difference in my opinion, and ultimately it will be the factor that makes many decide between these two handsets. The Samsung Galaxy R also sports a dual-core processor (1GHz), so there is more computing power at the user’s disposal compared to the iPhone 4 (1GHz single core processor).

As mentioned above, choosing between these two handsets is difficult. It is not really fair to say that one is better than the other, as in my opinion I see these as two versions of the same phone; with the operating system being the biggest difference. Aside from the OS, there is not much to choose between the two in terms of hardware.

The Best Software Tester in the World?

Attention to detail

If you ask ten testers to each test something, you will typically see a varied amount of defects detected. This will still be the case if all of the testers had exactly the same experience and testing knowledge. This is quite often down to how focused the tester is when looking at something (attention to detail). While at first glance something may look good, but on closer inspection, defects can be seen. Attention to detail is what makes a great tester stand out from a good tester.


During the day-to-day tasks a software tester has, there will invariably come a time when the tester needs to converse with others, more often than not with software developers. When speaking to a developer about a bug they found, the tester must always bear in mind, that they are essentially finding fault in that developer’s work. Diplomacy skills are a key asset to any software tester as they are paramount in building and maintaining a healthy working relationship with the development team. A poor relationship between software testers and developers can negatively impact any software development and place unnecessary risk on the project.

Quick Learner

Software testers that work for outsourced QA companies will often find themselves switching between a huge variety of projects, which today may include web, mobile, smart products and wearable tech. Being able to ramp-up on a product saves precious time during a development life-cycle. Sometimes software will need to be tested that has no documentation. Therefore, the software tester needs to be able to explore the software and quickly extract the information they need. This key information may be used to create a test plan, a set of test cases or QA estimate.


It is easy to spot software testers that are passionate about the software they are testing. They typically find more defects and they show enthusiasm during meetings for not only the product they are testing, but also for software testing in general. Clients are much more likely to re-hire software testers that are enthusiastic about their product. On the flip side, software testers that show no enthusiasm quickly stand-out and it invariably shows in the quality of their QA work.

Business Oriented

A great software tester can see the product as whole and take on the mind-set of the intended audience. This skill is extremely useful in reporting issues that may otherwise be found by the end users after the product’s release. Another aspect of business orientation is the ability to understand why a certain functionality is being introduced, and applying this knowledge to their testing. This information can enhance the testing being performed and provide a richer set of results. A tester should also be able to appreciate that deadlines need to be met(and as is often the case) may result in a reduced amount of time for QA. Being flexible and understanding of the business impact of the deadline of a release is extremely important to the relationship of the test team with the rest of the product stakeholders.


There is no specific criteria as to what makes the best software in the world, as each company, or project may have a different requirement or goal as to what they want the software tester to achieve. Our QA team’s experience of testing a wide variety of software products for clients all over the globe has given us great insight as to what kind of testers we needed to make those projects a success.

How Can Cloud-Based PM Software Streamline Your Billing Process?

Medical practice management software has proven to be a very valuable tool for physicians and their staff for years. Tasks such as managing patient information, charge capture, patient billing, appointment scheduling, and a variety of reports are automated and easier through medical management software applications. Medical software is sometimes referred to as physician office mgmt. software or medical information systems. With the advent of cloud-based practice management software, does this take a valuable tool another step further or is this just a passing fad for medical offices and physicians? Some clear advantages to cloud-based medical computing solutions include:

1. Readily accessible with minimal hardware/software investment. The pay-per-use model keeps initial costs down.

2. Automated, real-time backup of critical files and systems is provided.

3. A solution is available without the need for installation or software management by the client.

4. A growing number of platforms are available including PC/laptop, smartphone, iPad and tablet devices. For the cloud-based medical management software market space, there are an increasing number of solutions available for physicians and medical offices.

When evaluating a software solution, physicians should consider several features and options:

  • How will cloud-based medical practice software improve the physician’s clinical workflow efficiency? Would instant-access to the software really save time?
  • Can the cloud-based practice management software improve reimbursements from insurance providers? Does it provide consistent coding and automated submittals?
  • What platforms are currently available as part of the medical practice management software today? What platforms are planned in the future and how soon will they be released? Can the physician office use the platforms that are currently available? For example, there is no need to pay for an iPad version if the medical office is not planning on investing in iPads.
  • Does this improve the patient experience? Does the medical practice software allow the doctor to spend more time with patients? Or will the physician have to spend more time behind a desk typing?
  • How flexible are the cloud-based medical management options? For some practices, an a la carte menu provides the needed flexibility. For other practices, having a “packaged” solution keeps things simple and easier to manage. The medical practice should review based on their specific needs and budget.

As a greater number of medical professionals migrate to mobile computing, having a cloud-based practice management solution will become mandatory. Careful evaluation of features along with appropriate examination of the software budget should give physicians a solution that can greatly improve not only the billing process but all medical office management tasks.
