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...

S3 build material is plastic but it survives much more longer than iPhone 5 in the blender. :]

I don't think you can award any extra points for iMessage, considering the SGS3 comes with not only ChatOn, but Google Talk, a cross platform messaging service that works through your gmail address. It's got a wider platform base, working on all Android devices, plus any computer that can access gmail (probably iOS too, but I've never looked).

Why not iphone5 vs note2? That's a more fair comparison since they are released at the same time?

I hope WP8 can do what these cant, and that is better business and personal integration. These mobiles are just a gaming, photo, maps, and video platforms, but where is the business integration. Maybe even look to the new BB. Someone has to get it right. I do not want to spend hours stuffing around on a complex interface, and spend hours customisation trying to make what is mobile device easier to use. I want less Social Network Integration and more business integration. As always, an excellent article from GSMarena.

Better might be to stick with iOS, since Android is about to get clobbered by WP8.

I think you guys are biased towards the Iphone on some of those. So.. the SGS3 has a micro USB.. BUT the Iphone has a fancy suite that you have to install to download pictures from the camera folder via a cable that costs 30$ SO IT'S A TIE! Wuut?!

This is the most proffesional method of making smartphone comparisons that I have ever seen. I particularly like the part they said 'tally the wins that matter' because smartphone preference is very personal. For example in this comparison SGS3 takes the cake for me but compare any smartphone in the world and nothing seems better than N808 to me ever! GSMA congrats on a very proffesional analysis

The HTC dlx with its 1080p screen, 2gb ram and s4 pro chip will wipe the floor with both of them

The advantage it has is that for tech geeks it is very much customizable... If not... Just use it as it is... Android is more popular than ios btw... So saying ios is what people "need" isnt valid anymore...

I love apple but m not happy with them any more .i had high expectations from iPhone 5 but it has nothing new to offer . I hope they realise they aren't going in the right direction . Ipad mini is a bigger iPod and 4th gen ipad huh I don't see the point in even calling it a new product. M using ipad 3 n I don't find the urge to even think of upgrading it . I was so happy with my iPhone 4S, when one of my friends told me to give a chance to galaxy s3 before the release of iPhone 5 , I did . After using it I hate to say, but s3 is miles ahead of iPhone . I love iPhone but its saddening to see their new(?) products . I wish they come up with something new so I can get back to my beloved apple and make fun of android . I miss the excitement I felt ,buying iPhone 4 and - even - 4s . Plz bring innovation back to ur products apple .
