Xbox One: The Xbox One console is a larger box trying to become the only device in your home entertainment center. Its hardware uses 8 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM, meaning games run smoothly and clearly.
PlayStation 4: The PlayStation 4 console is slender and sleek. It also has a higher screen resolution than previous models because of its 8 gigabytes GDDR5 RAM hardware. These specs indicate more raw graphical computational power.
Bottom line: It comes down to what purpose you want your device to serve. For a complete entertainment experience including live TV, gaming, online services, and Web browsing, the Xbox One console makes up for its bulky presence. The PlayStation 4 is slim and fast, but not as extensive in its abilities. And the hardware specs that point to a faster PS4 don’t necessarily mean it’s a better machine. Both consoles are well-equipped to run graphics at high speeds and with clear images.
