Comparing and matching images

I am looking to compare a new image to a database of images, and then output the higher "similarity". The images I want to compare are similar, but the problem is though because they're not pixel by pixel equal. I've tried to use BoW (Bag Of Words) model already, as per recommendation, I tried various implementations without success, the best correct rate I got was 30%, which is something really low.

Let me show you what I am talking about: imgur gallery with 5 example images. I want to detect that the four initial images are equal, and the fifth one is different. I wouldn't mind only detecting that the ones with the same angle orientation are equal, though. (In my example 2, 3 and 4)

So, that being said, are there any better methods than BoW for that? Or perhaps BoW should be enough if I implemented in a different way?

Thanks in advance.
