You should compare the iPhone 5 with the S3's big brother, Note 2. That is an interesting fight.
Still reading, but why wins the iphone in 2.Design and build quality, even though they mention the lack of battery replaceability and the lack of microSD and many others?
"The Samsung smartphone has slightly better stereo when used with an active external equalizer, but the rest of the readings are basically identical" PLUS mass storage for the droid and yet you still give the iPhone a win? Weird.
To be honest iphone has more games and apps, better battery,better camera,worse map
Service,more contrast ratio,better audio quality,better design,better siri and worse telephony.After all of these we can say iphone 5 is better because the battery and contrast ratio and number of apps and games and camera are very important.You can see in camera
Comparison in the winner part iphone 5 is the winner and in the battery life comparison iphone 5 is 11 hours and samsung galaxy s iii has 10 hours.If you want to be honest iphone is better.Don't reject it.
"..Worse yet, they're soon to be last season's phones..."
Wasn't iPhone 5 just released? lol
Open system + awesome phone capabilities and specs at a cheaper price + mind blowing real hd , and true multitasking so clearly gs3 is the best one ever made
There is nothing new/extra/better in iPhone 5 to make me buy that phone after having the phone for a week I have to tell. If you are an Apple fan boy then consider asking worth or not questions http://www.teqno-logical.com/review/iphone-5-review-is-it-worth-buying/, if you are not - buy Sony's Xperia or Nokia's Lumia :)... Honestly, I don't like how expensive iPhone is offering nothing but its design and image, while SGS3 is just ugly, agree or not, both Sony's phones look much better while offering almost the same as SGS3, and Lumias work better comparing to iPhones.
Alexei, 25 Oct 2012Unless I'm wrong, iPhone 5 offers USB-OTG as well. Lightning cables to connect usb drives and ... moreNot quite - all the iPhone 5 does is let you import the images from those. You can't connect a mouse or a keyboard or browse the file system like on the Galaxy S III.
there is no confidentiality remained in apple these days... no steve.. hence less curiosity about product and i really can't see apple innovations now.
Unless I'm wrong, iPhone 5 offers USB-OTG as well. Lightning cables to connect usb drives and microsd cards have been shown.
