Apple’s iPhone 5 Vs Samsung’s Galaxy S3
The stylish and easy to use iPhone 5 and the sensible and advanced Galaxy S3, entered a continuous fight for the title of the best smartphone, since they were first released. Fighting on becoming a success in both sales and engineering excellence, Apple and Samsung strived to offer their customers clearer displays, and an operating system that is going to allow users, to create anything they can imagine.
From the side of the wireless technologies, iPhone 5 comes with support for HSPA+, EDGE, LTE and Bluetooth 4.0 among others, and Galaxy S3 with HSPA+21, NFC, EDGE and WiFi iPhone has a 4inch Retina display, with a resolution of 1136 x 640, and S3 has a 4.8inch sAMOLED display, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 smartphones come with 8MP cameras, featuring pretty much the same 1080p video recording and face recognition features.
A slight difference appears in the battery life, Galaxy being said to provide more than 10 hours of 3G talk time, which is 2 hours more than the 8 hours which iPhone 5 should provide. Another modification we can see in the chip used in both smartphones, the Apple A6 running at 1.3 GHz dual core, and the Samsung using a quad-core 1.4GHz Cortex -A9 processor.
Samung Galaxy S3 is one of the top 5 smartphones in the world. It has the Smart Stay feature, which knows when the user looks at the phone, saving battery life by turning the display off, the S-Beam, allowing users to put their phones together next to each other to share multimedia files, Best Photo, which automatically selects the best picture out of 8 shot and the Smart Alert, vibrating the phone when the user touches it after a period of time, in order to inform that new calls or messages have been missed.
The iPhone comes with new Siri voice recognition program, AirPlay and AirPrint for wireless connectivity to different devices, the 3D Flyover mode in the Apple Maps and the Panorama view picture.
Being one of the biggest companies in the world, Samsung has hundreds of different accessories and devices, which can be connected and ran straight from the use of the Galaxy S3. From a digital pen to advanced headsets and charging docks created by the same company, S3 users have access to a wholestore full of innovative accessories to improve the user experience.
Even if Apple’s iPhone 5 comes with the EarPods, which are the new redesigned headphones, as well as with the 8-pin connector, there are a lot of accessories and gadgets that can be connected to the stylish smartphone, such as the Nike+ Armband, Apple TV and many others. You can find a lot of Smartphone reviews online from where you can choose the best phone for you.
After its release date, the Samsung Galaxy S3 was starting at about $199 for the 16GB version, but because more than 4 months have passed since then, the cheaper version can be bought for only $99 on contract.
The iPhone 5 was just released a couple of weeks ago, and the starting price is at $199 for 16GB.
In my opinion, the winner should be declared iPhone 5, as its versatility and ease of use are unprecedented in any other phone, including the Galaxy S3, which is proving to be a reliable competitor for our winner.
