The Games of Throne….. iPhone 5 v/s Samsung Galaxy SIII

With the release of iPhone 5 the ongoing war between Apple and Samsung has got intense. Apple has tried its best to bring out the model which will defeat all its  rivals including the major one ‘The Galaxy S3’. We will have to see that how does the new smart phone stack up to the competition. Well this war is now not only limited to the two smart phone giants but I have seen the users of these two smart phones arguing and fighting with each other even though the technical war is on full swing but obviously I have seen some immature arguments too. Quoting just for fun some of the few arguments between the iphone and Galaxy geeks.

Syed Umar Zahid a user of S3 slams the release of iPhone 5 by quoting the following words:

“Hey man.. Whats new in it?” 

On the other hand the iPhone user says:

” The S3 baby is crying with his big and wide ‘smart phone’ in his hand”.


These are the views of different people supporting iPhone 5 and S3. The social media talks and blogs are full of this discussion that which phone would be acquiring the top spot in the near future and who will grab the throne after such exciting games.

So lets compare the iPhone 5 with the hottest smart phone prior 12th September and that was “Samsung Galaxy S3” here is a comparison of iPhone 5 with Galaxy S3, which smart phone comes on top decide yourself.

1) Size and Weight

Apple seems to follow the S3 in some respects,it is 20g lighter than the S3 and a full 1mm  more slender than Samsung’s flagship device.

 2) Display

The S3′s screen uses a technology called AMOLED, which displays vivid color and deep blacks. On the contrary, since the iPhone 5 has a LCD screen, it can display whites much better. It also has a slightly higher pixel density due to its smaller size.

3)Storage and memory

Both handsets feature 1GB of main RAM in the UK, though the US version has 2GB, as does the Galaxy Note 2 worthy of 2GB but Apple may argue it is unnecessary to run its iOS 6 operating system. Both devices are going to be available with a variety of internal storage options, with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions on offer. The Galaxy S3 also sports a microSD slot, allowing further expansion currently of up to 64GB. Quite why anyone would need 128GB in their phone is beyond us, but with no iPhone 5 128GB currently, the choice is yours.


Apple’s new-gen A6 chip is dual-core.Apple claims it is up to twice as fast as the A5 chip in the iPhone 4S.This still risks lagging behind the Samsung Galaxy S3 which sports a quad-core Exynos 4 processor at 1.4GHz


The Android-running Galaxy S3 might ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, but it’s getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the immediate future, making for a fascinating showdown with Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 6. It’s hard to say which device’s interface functions more seamlessly or features the best apps  – for the time being, it’s a matter of personal preference, though anyone with significant investment in paid-for apps might be better sticking with their existing platform.


On paper, the two devices are exactly the same, offering an 8-megapixel primary camera and HD video at 1080p. Whether or not all of the features Apple bragged about earlier today – the dynamic low light mode, and the optimised five-element, sapphire lens, for example – make a real difference to the handset’s imaging capabilities remains to be seen

Apple again looks like it has let its user base down with regards to battery life, with the iPhone 5 offering the same claimed eight hour 3G talk time as its predecessor, the 4S. The Galaxy S3, on the other hand, boasts a 2100 mAh with almost 12 hours of purported talk time


Apple primarily showed off the iPhone 5’s contract pricing this evening, but has since confirmed via its official website that a SIM-free version of the new handset will run consumers £529. It’s good that Apple isn’t going too far over the £500 watershed, generally an accept norm for high-end devices – the Galaxy S3 currently retails at £499.99 for a 16GB model.
