Firstly I would like to address the writer of the post, the chip sets are not designed by their respective companies. Samsung builds chip sets for Apple as well so saying one is better than the other is out of the window.
Its simple impressive elegant and more responsive...

For me personally, I prefer the simple user interface of the iPhone over SGS3. Android devices simply have far too complex menus and submenus for my liking.
The feel of the iPhone is great, sturdy, and super fast and responsive. I love it.
I currently am the proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy S 2 and i love it! The picture quality comes out better then my friends iphones, i got complete games for free where they had to pay 1.99 or more for it. It last's me for 2 days where my friends iphone lasts them a day. My friend just got the SGS 3 and hasnt thouht about going back to her iphone 5 at all. I recently dropped my S 2 on a bed of rocks from my ear and i stand at 5'6 not a single scratch on it and that was the day that i forgot to put my phone case on. I have had the chance to use ann iphone 5 and i will stick to my S2 until i find it necessary to upgrade it.
Its light, slim and handy. Agree to Chitrak that if you have iPhone4s you may not need iPhone5. But if you have earliers models then definitely a reason to buy.Even dealers are offering EMIS.
Maps: Apple is improving maps as per TUAW (http://aol.it/UBz6bu). Also for India MapMyIndia in tie up with sygic offers best map experience with door2door navigation, real time traffic updates(http://www.sygic.com/en/ios). Google Reportedly Readies Maps App For iOS (http://techcrunch.com/2012/11/15/google-reportedly-readies-maps-app-for-ios-as-eddy-cue-manages-apples-maps-improvements/)
Don't worry about software glitches. They will be fixed any time through upgrades. Still its more better quality than Android.
Additional features: iMessage, Camera Panorama view, Face-Time....
IPhone5 is bit high priced but not too high if you consider the quality and services like iCloud. iCloud will give better experience than free drop box.
Galaxy S3 is available cheaper than iPhone but with bulky size, heavy weight and a cheap plastic back cover. Sorry to say but this reminds my school days geometric box.Quad core processor? You need or your OS need? Optimizing OS is more important than increasing processor.
From my view iOS gives better usability experience than Android. To use Android fully, One either need to be a techie or need to have prior android experience. iOS is still the easiest OS then comes Windows and finally Android the toughest.
Boooyah, look android is not android its lagdroid. How can you expect games like nova 3 and asphalt 7 to work in iPod touch 2 nd gen. Like its crazy guys--..android is a lag os. Bloody even in s2 some games lag. Apple is a class apart. There is no phone of the std. Which can be compared... Love you qpple qnd iOS. Rip steve!!!
a.pl is about 200+ euros more expensive off contract, so there is no competition here
I have never heard anyone put it any clearer than in the following sentance or reasoning: Having an iphone is like running windows 95 on an i7 processor with 8gb of ram of course it;s going to fun fast- if not blazingly fast it's a simple system running on super fast and advanced specs- and THAT'S where android has apple beat android operating system is forever evolving, changing and adding functionaility and features it's like running windows 8 on a pc with todays specs the specs and operagting system are equivalent, ios is so simple and primative it's never really changed and don't get me started in itunes lol, and i'm no android fan boy just a fan of technology :)
for all those who are just talking,crap and didnt actuall watch the review, there were only 2 categories in which the iPhone lost which was screen size and maps/navigation both of which has merit. other than that the iphone either won or they tied. sg3 has a quard core processor which is defeated by apples dual core. thats is something to mention even laugh at, just saying apple does look a lot better than samsung this year, and no im not an apple fanboy. and there are as much free apps on the ios store as there is on android market.... i think there are more free apps on the ios store and they are the same trial bull shit on both. if u want free applications go study programming become a programmer and develop all the apps u want please shut up about im sick of people treating a piece of machine as if it is life and death so what if apple makes better products than samsung or vice versa people have the right to buy what they love in this case apple looks better in my opinion so im getting the iPhone 5 and selling my gs3.
iPhone is the
most smart phone in the world,
and most impotantly it helps to ease our work without any hesitation!!! Love IPHONES. BEST phone ever!!!!!
I dont think so there should be any prob selecting one btwn the two. Iphone 5 is quite more pocket emptying dan s3 but i wudnt recommend an iphone 5 over galaxy s3 this is bcz.. Iphone 4s was very mch above expectations and due to this the iOS 6 was expected to cum wid some bang but unfortunately iOS hasent changed anythng mch over iOS 5 to tok abt the phone the increase in screen size and faster internet is the nly major change i wud say there is no drastic chabge in the camera quality nd rest. Considering s3 dis phone has cum up wid a very gud human resources recognition technology which makes a user prefer it over iphone 5 perhaps the however the touch quality and the the smoothness of the phone is a bit beter in iphone 5 but stil that duznt make it a beter phone than s3.
why do you compare a 1.4 Ghz Quadcore smartphone with a 1.2 Ghz Dualcore Stupidphone ( iphone failed in geek bench too )
junulrik, 07 Nov 2012although galaxy s III has gain much popularity, but still iphone 5 is the real winner.. no ... morereality is far more hurting than truth dished out in sparkles.
i've come across iphone5 and had a chance to operate it. i'd say it's quite a piece of stunning artwork packed with some cool features.
i'm using an sgs3 which i've found out to be the phone for my needs and uses. i'm not being anti-apple, however, having said that, i've to admit that apple products are as useful for your calling needs as a diamond-studded cellular phone.
of course, the elite would find an iphone similar to robert redford - pure pretty face with no acting skills at all! the sgs3 is more like sidney poitier - pure acting and expressiveness!!
apple iphones and pcs are way too costly for the middle-class while samsung has designed its products for each segment of the society.
Hey calm down, for me do not compare iphone 5 and samsung galaxy s3, ..like a human they are not the same talent or ability no need to compare the important thing is they exist..and they are both useful for us..if you are not contented of iphone 5 then buy a samsung galaxy s3.. :)
SII it is still for me . Just install Cyanogen Mod and don't bother with officials . However I always were tempted to buy a high capacity battery ... After S2 and iphone 4's generation the speed and smoothness settled to a stable pace and you wont get much upgrade with the new ones in real life ... The most technology that needs to advance now is the battery design ...
