Versus App Lets You Quickly Compare Two Things

If you have ever had the urge to compare two things, be it the hottest new phones or washer-dryers, it has usually involved a bit of good researching. Versus is a new app on Android that will let users easily see the pros and cons of one thing as opposed to another, and will take input from users as well to make the app better.

The app has an easy-to-use interface as is apparent above, and looks to provide solid, to-the-point factual evidence. This means that, yes, the phone with beefier hardware is likely to win, but the fact that users can suggest new reasons to pick one thing over another makes it so that this is negated in a sense.

There are, of course, limitations to certain market sectors, and not every washer-dryer, ski resort, or phone has been indexed by the team behind the app. According to the Play Store description, you can currently compare phones, cameras, CPUs, tablets, headphones, graphics cards, cities, sports watches, single speakers, PC and gaming headsets, camcorders, monitors, fitness trackers, game consoles, motherboards, TVs, all-in-one DJ MIDI controllers, universities, robotic vacuum cleaners, washing machines, projectors, mobile phone headsets, gps navigation systems, scanners, e-readers, SSDs, smartwatches, MP3 players, voice recorders, MV* frameworks, ski resorts, washer-dryers, and tumble dryers; this is a pretty exhaustive list for a first release, though there has been a web version for a little while now.

For free, and with a two-megabyte size, there is no reason not to give Versus a quick look the next time you find yourself in a dilemma.

    Kind of cool, I installed this last night and was able to put up the LG G3 VS Galaxy S5, the picture for the G3 was actually the G2, but all of the specs were what we all think we know right now for the G3.

    My main complaint with this app is that it is portrait only. That sux on my tablet and I think is unforgivable in this day and age.

    Versus is not trustworthy at all, specially concerning the processor, they think that a Quad core 2 GHz processor is like a 4 single core 2 GHz processors connected to each other, raising the final frequency to 8 GHz which can easily melt your entire town not just your phone, also it doesn’t really care about architecture of any processor which is way more important than the frequency of the processor as a dual core 1.5 GHz A15 dual processor can easily destroy a 2 GHz A5 quad core processor because of the much inferior A5 architecture, also random people can add some points to each phones if they had a bit of support from other people.

  • Foramex

    How about comparing it to another comparison app?

    • Cesar

      CAREFUL!! Are you TRYING to break the universe here???

      Next you’ll be suggesting we divide by zero…

  • EvanTheGamer

    REAL great reason! Wow. One of the greatest reasons to own a Galaxy Note 3 I’ve ever seen!

    • EvanTheGamer

      Sorry, couldn’t resist. lol

  • EvanTheGamer

    Pretty neat app, I’ll have to check it out. Good post.

    Comparing specs on anything be it a phone ora car is likely to do more harm than good on your buying decision, unless you have intimate knowledge on each spec and not just bigger number = better. This app is beyond stupid.

    • JoshGroff

      For the average consumer it takes more effort to do the research than it does to ask a relative or friend that has an affinity for tech and can simplify the differences, most of which actually matter are software based anyway.

  • calculatorwatch

    Wow that example comparison is pretty bad.

    Not that I want to complain too much since it makes the Nexus 5 look a lot better, but how about comparing actual usage time instead of just saying “bigger battery”, and everyone knows you don’t compare clock speeds between Android and iPhone (with misleading/incorrect math I might add).

    The top two iPhone advantages are pretty much worthless as well, the BSI sensor is the only thing that might actually make a difference.

    • Jkdem85

      Thought exactly the same thing . The 64 bit processor in the 5s is beastly. Everyone knows it and acknowledges it including Qualcomm and Nividia

      • JoshGroff

        Definitely, the iPad Air curb stomps any android tablet I’ve owned in both performance and battery life, and that’s not a short list. I definitely wouldn’t give up the customization and features of Android (and moto tweaks) on my phone though.

      • There’s no 64-bit processor involved in the comparison found in the featured image

        • JoshGroff

          That only brings the question why would someone compare the newest nexus with an iPhone that launched in 2012?

          • Eric R.

            Probably someone comparing by the number. Doesn’t matter Nexus 5 beats the 5s

        • Jkdem85

          Your right thought it was the 5s. The a6 in the iPhone 5 is beastly as well. Apple knows how to make a processor.

          • JoshGroff

            I was under the impression Samsung made their SoCs. or at least the A7.

    • Pootis Man

      The Nexus 5’s camera also has a BSI sensor.

      • calculatorwatch

        Ha, I guess just another reason user supplied comparisons are a bad idea.

        • Six83

          Yeah! Installed the app, seen a LOT of incorrect info on various phones and other products… uninstalled the app 🙁

  • Maxim∑

    The CPU part makes me cringe on that picture…

    “3.54x CPU speed” for 1 minute? before it starts thermal throttling

    More battery power? Larger display more power consumption

    • calculatorwatch

      The whole notion that you can get a total clock speed by multiplying the real speed by the number of cores is just downright wrong.

  • NexusPhan

    Or just use the Versus website that’s been around forever. That is probably worth mentioning in this article :/

    Have been using it for a long time. It’s great.

    • Probably worth reading the article :/

      • NexusPhan

        I had to reread it twice before I noticed it. Seems like you just threw that in there as an afterthought when usually, when there is a new app created for an old website, it’s a major point in the article. But, you are correct; it’s in there.

  • Scott

    since when does the iphone have a dedicated camera button…?

    • Volume button doubles as one.

      Kind of a stupid reason, because it is not “dedicated,” but that doesn’t mean the entire app sucks.

      • Guest

        Same with the G2 and G flex but I wouldnt really call it a dedicated camera button

        • brkshr

          So does any Nexus/GE device with the Google Camera installed. So, technically, this slide is wrong.

      • chris kilps

        so what I have dedicated shake!

      • Jeremy Gross

        every phone you have the option for that

      • JRomeo

        the Volume button on the Nexus5 already doubles as a dedicated camera button….

      • Aooga

        Pretty much every Android phone in existence has that option.

      • brkshr

        So far I’m noticing a few discrepancies on a few phone comparisons. Great idea/execution. Wrong facts.

        Wrong facts means the app is useless.

        Edit: and the N5 has the same volume button camera shutter feature now.

        • I wouldn’t go so far as useless. For those of us who know enough to correct a few inaccuracies ourselves, it’s fine, and still useful for getting some specs all in one place in a good interface.

          • brkshr

            Why would anyone try to get information from somewhere that is known to have wrong facts?! I don’t want to have to look at this app with a “good interface”, then go check around elsewhere to make sure that the facts are right. I would rather go straight to the reputable sites. I could forgive a mistake every now and then. It happens. With the amount of wrong that I have seen in less than 10 minutes. I can say that no one should put their trust in this app. Just because it has a “good interface”, doesn’t forgive it’s main purpose of conveying facts to users that are wrong.

    • Sepehr Naserkhaki

      yeah that was first thing I noticed too, if they mean volume buttons doubling as shutter, then so does the nexus 5…
