This is probably the best and most well written comparison I have ever read. All the information I needed to make a decision was there. I have decided and tomorrow i am buying a Motorola. HA!
Nice conclusion though...!!
well if you don't have an S3, you don't have an S3.... lol
iphone fans will hate me now, or probably sue me for the above line.. haha
My ip5 is only 1 week old issues are as follows... Battery life ; only 3-4 hours of non stop use ( 2-3 charges on my days off mucking round on it ) reception signal slim to none indoors in my house but walk two steps outside and it's fine . Can't use when charging as it heats up majorly and that can't be good at all.
Any one having these issues also ??
I'm starting to assume that all the people who are saying Iphone5 is the best are just trying to convince themselves that they didn't waste their money on something that's still having a hard time beating a phone 2/3 of its price and was released months earlier than it. I'm not saying that Iphone5 or S3 is better than the other, but still... it seems that they're tied on a lot of stuff, and yeah Iphone5 has some cooler features, but come on! You think the extra price was for lollipops? Of course not! It's for the extra juice, dimwits. If Samsung charged as much as apple, and released it at the same time, none of us would spend our time here debating... And will all just agree that yeah, they're pretty much the same?
I been having an Iphone since 2007 & will never trade it for an Android!! I dont care how much they are i will keep being an iphone customer till apple stops making them! Android cant ever compare itself with Iphone! Ever
i read all comments but its hard to decide what is best phone iphone or samsung
Who cares about the 2 dated devices where there is Lumia 920 which is in EVERY detail better
I use galaxy s3 and l love my phone.
i think galaxy s3 has better screen size,better battery life,and better os than iphone 5.
Android is more better than ios.its easy to work with android.you can do everything with your phone without rooting android.but you should hack your iphone to do simple thing you wish!!!
The price of galaxy s3 is good and totaly i prefer my samsung phone to iphone.
Alexei, 25 Oct 2012Unless I'm wrong, iPhone 5 offers USB-OTG as well. Lightning cables to connect usb drives and ... moreLighting cable is happening because apple wants more money from these accessories.
Guess who is paying for them ! it is you !
Have Iphone 4s and Galaxy S3. Having extensively used both, I feel except for a bigger and sharper screen, in most aspects 4s is a winner. Name any app, think of anything that you want to do, its faster, easier to open, easier to "reach" in iphone. There is a noticeable lag in S3 when you open an app. The number dialpad takes nearly 3 seconds to come up. In iphone it is just one or less. Battery life is just the same. 20-24 hours - a few calls, full time 3g data. Im not bothered about the replaceable battery or memory card. I cant think of a useful reason to have more than 16 gb used up. I have searched google play store many times for something simple yet brilliant like the iphone's reminder app. There are many - multi coloured, this option and that - But not what i want - like apple's - simple school kid book like list, jotted down easily, automatically arranged date wise, pushed up to top if unfinished, removed to "completed" list if ticked. Repeatable daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. It has replaced my paper diary. Wow - deserves a nobel. Coming to the camera - s3 has lot of options reduce size etc - but overall pic quality and natural colour is for 4s. Even the screen colour rendering.
But consider the fact that we read a lot on phones-a big screen makes a huge difference. Reading BBC or Aljazeera in S3 is lot more easier on the eye. And fun. I may go keep the S3 for its screen and readability. But having for the first time used an iphone for a month, I feel that clever marketing and hype is not the only reason why people line up at 3 am on a new iphone launch day.
