The big 20.7-megapixel camera on Sony’s new Xperia Z1 will no doubt get the smartphone a fair amount of attention; in Android-land, especially, for users comparing raw specs, it’s going to be hard to find anything that really measures-up. But even with that ace in the hole, Sony’s handset is going to face some stiff competition from higher-profile phones already on the market, and few get any higher-profile than the Samsung Galaxy S 4.

Sure, the GS4 has evolved a lot since it first launched, with new models like the waterproof GS4 Active and the LTE-Advanced GS4 with its Snapdragon 800 chip, but for many Android fans, the original launch versions of the GS4 are still the gold standard for comparison to other 2013 smartphones.

So at the IFA this year, when we had the opportunity to check out the Z1 for ourselves, we simply had to see how it compares to Samsung’s flagship. Watch below to see how the pair measures-up.
