Apple iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: All rise - read the full textWhen we review phones we try to put them in context, and tie everything up with a snapshot of the market and the closest alternatives. Now, we usually keep droids and iPhones separate because honestly they just donít mix. But every now and then...

Just to say, iOS does not work well with me, and I don't find anything very productive on the iPhone 5, you have to pay $99 to Apple to use the apps you created on your own phone, THAT is some bullshit. I'm not a iPhone hater, but I find the Samsung Galaxy S3, better for me, because it runs the open-source OS of Android, which is easier to program for, it is also a better base for.testing your apps and debug software. If you want to take pics and videos, and browse the web on the go, the iPhone 5 is for you. It is just an opinion and this is what I think of the Galaxy S3 vs. iPhone 5 review, brought to you proudly by the GSMarena Team.

Apple iPhone 5 is better than Samsung Galaxy S3.Despite having more features the Android has still not been able to catch up to Apple iPhone 5. iPhone 5 is just awesome!

Samsung Galaxy S3 is better because it has Smart Stay, Air View and stuff like that. iPhone 5 is like iPhone 4, just more powerful. I have Samsung Galaxy S3 and it is awesome.

I have an S3 4G and there is only one thing that should have been done better. When i use the gallery app, it automatically picks up ALL the cover art for my music and makes a separate viewing folder for each one. I installed QuickPic and i can select folders to hide though. Samsung should have thought of this. Never had this problem on my previous HTC phone.

Hey guys! I need some help. I hv an option to either buy S3 or an iphone 5... I hv spent alot of time reading all this but i still can't finalize.Btw my old phone is samsung. My friend has iphone5 and her phone doesn't catch wifi signals if they r a little weaker while i can still use internet. Does anybody else face this problem? Then also the problem of bluetooth etc is there.... I want good battery life and good cameras both primary and secondary. So which one?

I think iphone's smaller FOV is actually more of a plus than a minus. Wide-angle lenses tend to distort faces.

don't buy iPhone 5 , they will treat you like a slave S3 is more performant than the iPhone & Android is more customizable & free
