The iPhone 5 is not a rumor now, its real. As we all expected, iPhone 5 is featuring a larger screen than other iPhone models, a faster processor and a somewhat improved camera. Now the Question which makes all of us confuse, is which one to buy, Samsung Galaxy S3 or the new iPhone 5?
Let’s not go on anyone’s opinion, and have look at the features of both the phone and decide which one to buy.
First comparison: The Releasing
Apple’s iPhone 5 – unveiled on September 12, will be available on September 21
Samsung Galaxy S3 – unveiled in May 2012, and available for buying
Just according to the Apple’s trend of unveiling the phone and start delivering about a week later. It’s the typical Apple style of launching the iPhone, you can put your order from September 14 and they will start delivering from September 21.
On the other hand Samsung Galaxy S3 is already playing good in the market and currently the most popular product. In just two months after it launch it broke the records of its predecessors Galaxy S and Galaxy S2, it crossed the 10 million sales.
Second Comparison: On the Design
Apple’s iPhone 5 – is around 7.6 mm in thickness, have metal casing, and its usual non-removable battery.
However, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 – featuring 8.6mm thickness, having plastic casing, removable battery
This time Apple focused on making the iPhone 5 as thin as possible. As a result of its efforts the thickness was reduced to 7.6 mm having tiny SIM and the new display technology allowed to merge everything as down as possible. Comparing with Samsung S3 it’s 1 mm thin !! (Impressive).
iPhone 5 is not mega thin so as to make it comfortable to hold on. Very slightly curved edges rather than the previous model’s stepped edges, all this makes it more comfortable to hand. And less slippy than previous models, because of new aluminium back and extremely high build quality.
Samsung’s S3 features an all-plastic finishing and having ultra-thin back cover. This back cover has been criticized too much, as this is the part which doesn’t allow you to feel it as a £500 phone.
Before buying we’ll recommend that for Samsung’s Galaxy S3, firstly get hold of it in hand comfortably. Some will find it uncomfortable to hold.
Let’s have a look at the accessories:
iPhone 5: The new Earpod headphones, new power connector with light (the new headphone are the newest in design, that you might have never seen earlier).
Galaxy S3: microUSB charge cable, Samsung’s noise isolating IEM earphones, Power adapter
