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 don’t mix. But every now and then...

If I wanted to see who has text me then i would use the messaging app. This really annoys me on my s3 as it always takes forever to find people that have recently called.
Apart from that it is easily the best phone i have ever owned

*"4" screen can be operated by one hand" - You can still do that with the S3.
*"reject a call with sms" - that has been with Android for a while.
*"apple maps" - You're kidding yourself! Have you tried using this?!
*"32gb is enuf with icloud" - the S3 has up to internal 64GB + another 64GB for micro SD, & has cloud service. My audio collection is about 30GB+ now. Yes, it's a great thing you have a lot more room for even movies & tv shows & more apps.
*"its camera is way better with the new panorama features" - Geez! Panoramic photo functions has been around for 3 years on free apps!

The price of loyalty!

Since I bought my S3 4 months ago, i was going to sell it back due to its huge size, but after 1 week i was glad that i did the switch over my C7 as i was a Nokia fanboy, and since then i never touched my tablets anymore(Samsung Tab1 & Lenevo Pad) and i was almost going to buy a PSP before the S3 to play portable games. The S3 is perfect in everything shooting pix, playing games, surfing the web and social medias, playing videos, navigation etc... the S3 is simple the best and you don't need to buy or carry on any other new devices (Navigators, PSP or Nintendo or even tablets), even i was so eager to buy the Nexus 7 due to the Tegra and the cheap price but then i didn't as i will not take it anywhere with me and since the release of the Note2 with its perfect SPen i might do the switch soon.
I am pretty sure the reason behind that Apple don't want to make the screen bigger isn't to keep the phone operated with one hand as they just don't care about their clients needs it's simply because they can sells their ipads and their new mini-ipad and to earn more money.

Thing is, look at the list of advantages of the S3 over the iPhone; look at the list of disadvantages in the seperate reviews, where the iPhone has about 3 times as many disadvantages as every other phone on the market including the crap ones; the S3 has already been out for months; you're not tied into anything on Android. Yeah the iPhone might have a good camera (the shots used in this comparison seem better on the S3 FYI GSMArena), but is it the better product, or are people supposed to automatically love the iPhone because it's the same as what came before? The market has moved on, lucky for Apple it has built up such a loyal fan base or they'd have headed the way of Blackberry and Nokia by now.
