Apple.... a looooooooong drive but road is closed.
SGS3.... a looooooooong drive but the road is open, can go anywhere.
Dave, 27 Oct 2012I used galaxy s3 for about three months and then got iphone 5 when it was released. Really lik... moreStronger reception ?
Go check please Iphone 5 SAR rates. It will make you sell it as fast as possible.(that's also why iphone have stronger reception)
Then question come, why with all the superior hardware advantage, the user experience still only on par( i will say lower, being a Droid-convert apple FANBOY) with what Apple have provided?
have you use a Mac before?
Love this review, GSMarena.
Quality over quantity, as opposed to some other similarly named site.
And while some may not give the same verdicts category by category, the overall score is definitely very close to reality
Why nothing was mentioned about NFC connectivity ? It is an extra point for the GS3
alex, 27 Oct 2012And a winner is...Samsung galaxy note 2!!!!Your answer is corect.
+1 for Note 2.

sam vs apple, 27 Oct 2012Look
blutooth can't connect with iphone
sd card no place
I tunes secure but hac... moreGet your grammar and spelling right before bashing.
iPhone 5 has a much better camera than the S3
Seriously, stop bashing - they're both great phones. Not everyone has the same preferences as the others.
"You'll be the judge, so the winner doesn't have to be the one with the better lawyers."
Nice hint on saying the S3 won :))
z, 27 Oct 2012switched to i5 from gnexus. im never going back to android. because you dont have money anymore?
I used galaxy s3 for about three months and then got iphone 5 when it was released. Really like both phones , but the one thing that makes the iphone better for me is that it has stronger signal than S3. I got sick of not being able to get reception in some of the places I go to when using S3. I had phone swapped twice but still the same issue , my S2 I used for awhile had the same problem. Also I find the camera on iPhone much better. Aside from that they are both really good phones, I take the S3 with me if I want to be able to watch movies and plays games to keep myself amused but I prefer the iphone as a day to day mobile phone. What I do get sick of is all the user reviews that pretend to have owned iphone 5 and not been happy with it or pretend to be open minded and then go on to put down iphone , Apple and anything or anyone that has anything to do with either. I prefer iphone , it does what I want and need from a mobile phone but I would still recommend S3 to anyone who wants an Android phone.
Currently using s3
I sold my s1 for iphone 4... and i am disappointed
Sold iphone 4 and bought htc sensation xe.. and i am happy again
Bought galaxy nexus... then sold once again to try iphone 4s... wtf no dffence
And now i bought samsung galaxy s3 and i rooted it..flashed different roms ... and its a super powerful device..
I will not sell my phone once again to buy the iphone 5 clearly the s3 wins with tons of features than iphone..
Iphone.. no widgets.. cant customize lock screen..
Same ui as the older version... not cheaper as samsung...
Bad camera.. bad battery no nfc... cant customize..
HTC Desire HD, 27 Oct 2012Well said man..Rooted android device is very powerful..my old DHD is better than an Iphone 4S..In some ways yes. But I'd argue that rooting also limits some apps. Take sky go. One of my favourite apps. Won't work on a rooted phone. It will work fine on a jailbroken iPhone. So until devs are made to stop placing restrictions like that then rooting an android can actually limit your phone. Not good on a supposedly open system..
I have an s3 and an iPhone 4. Sky go is one of the few reasons I still keep an iPhone due to the fact that android has such restrictions that iOS doesn't..
Sort that and I can leave the iPhone at home....
And a winner is...Samsung galaxy note 2!!!!
CJ-Smile, 27 Oct 2012Spec: S3 is better.
Software: Jelly Bean is better, even smoother now.
Resale Value: iPhone ... moreTBH I'm not sure I understand your post.
You start by saying its personal preference, then move on to slate people choosing an iPhone. So what you're really saying seems to be it's personal preference as long as they choose what you prefer....?
switched to i5 from gnexus. im never going back to android.
Hey there folks from gsmarena.com!
Well I was waiting for this review from long and as you said in the beginning, I think it's a little too late.
Great review over here.
I really wanted to know about the phones ups and downs and now I really think I do.
Especially when it came to other things except benchmarks. Cause the iPhone 5 clearly beats the Galaxy S3 even when it gives out its best.
I was really confused which phone to upgrade too.
Especially because the years about to end and new smartphones are coming up in the market.
And now I have decided to buy a Galaxy S3.
As you said, software is something important to me.
And I have been using the iPhone 4 from quite a long time and I need an upgrade. Really think SGS3 is good enough.
Thanks for the reviews and tips you have us.
Thanking you sincerely,
Anonymous gsmarena.com fan.
