It’s hard to believe that any one at the moment can suggest which phone is best. The iPhone 5 isn’t out and when it does come out then you can state the claim of a winner. The Samsung Galaxy SIII is out there and currently is ruling the market with approximately $10 million sales.
The iPhone 5 currently has not been released and Apple has not officially released the stats on this phone. You can not compare, suggest or determine a winner as well as compare both phones. But let us compare the facts:-
iPhone 5 - 7.6mm thick, metal casing, non-removable battery
Samsung Galaxy S3 - 8.6mm thick, plastic casing, removable battery .
iPhone 5 - 4in IPS, 1,136 x 640 resolution
Samsung Galaxy S3 - 4.8in Super AMOLED, 1,280 x 720 resolution
The Apple iPhone has conventionally conserved a 3.5 inch display screen in their recent releases. Will the Apple iPhone 5 risk their production their style to contest with the bigger screens of the Android Market? Demand for big displays is really high as phones now days are being used to watch multimedia. As you can expect, a larger display size means a bigger iPhone case to hold it.
Even though the S3 has a 4.8 inch display, half an inch bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S2, the handset is only marginally bigger due to its trimmed bezel and surrounding area around the handset. If the Apple iPhone 5 adopted this approach, a 4 inch screen could be expected without a major change in handset size.
iPhone 5 - 1GB RAM, S5L8950X CPU (A5x variant), cores TBC
Samsung Galaxy S3 - 1GB RAM, Exynos 4412, Quad-core 1.4GHz
Samsung customs Exynos 4 Quad chip which is clocked at 1.4GHz and is grounded on the ARM Cortex A9 architecture.
The iPhone 5 should have an A6 processor which could well be quad-core. However Apple could opt to use the A5X chip found in the new iPad which is dual-core with quad-core graphics.
iPhone 5 - 8MP, LED flash
Samsung Galaxy S3 - 8MP, LED flash
The Galaxy S3 has a back facing camera rated at 8Mp with the capability to record video in full HD 1080p quality. There's not been any mention about the resolution of the iPhone 5's camera but we have heard it will use a Sony 'RGBW' and High Dynamic Range (HDR) Movie' sensor.
Another rumour said that the camera will have a 'multi-point camera focusing system' which will let the user focus on two or more areas of focus via the touchscreen.
iPhone 5 - greater than $299
Samsung Galaxy S3-$249.99
Price is where the S3 has the edge over iPhone 5. Because of iPhone's high prices Samsung just might be able to win the race when it comes to units sold. But you never know if iPhone offers their expense with fruitful features they might just beat the S III and become the king of 2012 smartphones.
Both phones are amazing when it comes to specs therefore if you are looking to invest on a phone we suggest you to wait for iPhone 5 to release. If iPhone 5 is good then it would defiantly be worth the wait and if it isn't impressive enough then you still have s3 which has proven its worth in the past months.
