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...

 

Sort by:

iOS: simplicity alias slavery. Android: freedom alias chaos.
Iphone5: beauty beyond function. SamsungSG4: beauty is skin deep.

Both are good, but if we're talking quality vs price '21st century rule', the S3 is way better.

iOS is good, i had an iPhone 4S but i switch to Android. Why? Apple is very restricted and limited, they don't let you do anything to customize, and you must pay for almost everything. Android is "Here you go, now do whatever the f*ck you want" Android offers freedom and customization WITHOUT root your phone. Also, iOS is very closed, you cannot share by bluetooth to other devices that aren't iPhones/iPods/iPads/Macs, you cannot download music directly from your computet if you don't have iTunes and you cannot transfire files from your Computer to you iPhone by USB. That's the big deal for Apple.

galaxy S III software is freezing, unlike Iphone 5 the software is very good. That's why much better to use iphone.

gawd, so we are comparing a 'smart car' to a Ferrari now???

no, I dont hate apple, I will love it **when** it gets a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 screen...

oh and just plug it into your pc, and use it just like you would a flash drive..

oh yeah, a friend give you a 32Gb memory card **full up* with 100's of videos.. what do you do to see them??? I just put it into my sdcard slot, 5 secs later I am laughing at them on my phone!! -

another friend says can I get a copy?? well it 100meg you know.. he says OK, my bluetooth is on, send it!! :)

when iphone has all that, everyone will love it.. :P

Without jailbreak iPhone cannot:
1. Use Bluetooth sharing files with other devices.
2. Install new input app.
3. Change the theme for the phone.
4. Dynamic background live wallpaper.
5. Playing other media files format.

I do admit iPhone 5 is a beautiful sexy phone and iOS is good but not that perfect. It was beyond competitors by 5 years when it launched. But since Steve left us, the gap is getting smaller every time when the competitors come out a new product.
