These days, the market is jam packed with amazing smartphones from different leading manufacturers. When Samsung Galaxy S III was launched a couple of months ago before iPhone 5, a lot of people were taken by storm but a lot of these people held their eagerness for this unit and resist the temptation to shed off their hard-earned money to purchase the latest Android phone.
This is because, during this time, rumors of the iPhone 5 is still in the hype and a lot of people wanted to make sure that they are getting the right smartphone between these two competitors in the market. So to find out if people’s wait for iPhone 5 is worth it or they should have bought the Samsung Galaxy S III after its launch, let us proceed with the comparison below and be enlightened, once and for all:
Samsung Galaxy S III
Samsung Galaxy S III is the latest in Samsung’s Galaxy line of smart phones. It’s amazing features include the Super AMOLED display measuring 4.8 inches with 306 ppi pixel density, micro SD slot for additional 64 Gb external memory, 1.4 GHz Quad Core processor, etc.
However, beyond these amazing specs, Samsung Galaxy S III has amazing features that they can boast against other smartphones. Among these is the operating system, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But with the news of Android 4.1 coming up in October this year, Samsung Galaxy S III seekers don’t have to wait for the latter’s release since the Galaxy S III can be updated with the later Android 4.1 before the year ends. Samsung Galaxy S III also has a smart voice assistant called the ‘S Voice’, Android Beam, NFC technology, quick press burst shot for its rear camera, and much more.
The iPhone 5 has just been launched this Wednesday, September 12 at a media event in San Francisco and prior to this date, Apple has kept mum about its features. For this reason, people who are caught between the Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone 5 had to wait until the latter’s launch date before choosing between these two flagship smartphones.
After Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, rumoured specs that were confirmed are the thinner body at 7.6 mm and lighter weight at 112 grams, 4 inch Retina display with 326 ppi pixel density, more powerful A6 chip processor capable of exuding amazing graphics, etc.
As for the features that Apple is proud with iPhone 5, the new iOS phone brags about its dimension which makes it small enough to be convenient in one’s hand. While this characteristic is already with the previous iPhones, Apple improved iPhone 5’s dimensions and weight further by making it thinner and lighter. The increase in screen size caused the length of the said iPhone but this should not affect its portability.
iPhone 5 owners can also enjoy new iOS features such as the turn by turn navigation in the Map apps, smarter Siri, Passbook mobile wallet system, faster WiFi of up to 150 mbps which can give the user an amazing high speed internet experience, panorama feature for the rear camera, Shared photo streams, etc.
