Apple has finally launched the long awaited iPhone5 which has as always been launched with a bang. But this time Apple faces competition as the all new Samsung Galaxy S3 has been launched into the market too. The everlasting rivalry between the two worldwide tantalizing companies has taken new heights with the launching of these two gadgets. Choosing between the two phones is quite a difficult task. Let’s try to demystify it by comparing the features of two giants in this article.
This is an educational guide about Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5. Lets see who wins the race
Apple has done everything it could to slip down the iPhone as much as possible by cutting down on its thickness. The former rear glass layer has been omitted from the model and it has resulted in making it look extremely impressive. The beveled edge of the phone makes it very user-friendly. The silver model of Apple has an aluminum finish making it slippery in the hands. On the other hand the Samsung Galaxy S3 has an all-plastic finish which makes use of a thin back cover. The plastic cover of Samsung has received severe criticism.

iPhone 5 boasts of a 4 in IPS screen with 1136×640 resolutions. Samsung on the other hand has 4.8 in Super AMOLED screen with a 1280×720 resolution display. The alteration of the screen size in iPhone has thus offered its users a larger screen. The Samsung screen has a much wider look than the iPhone.
The Apple iPhone uses iOS 6 whereas the Samsung model uses Android 4.0, Touch wiz UI. iOS 6 is still cutting edge software which is definitely giving Android 4.0 a hard time in the market. Rivalry between iOS and Android isn’t new at all. But Android is still believed to be quite flexible as compared to iOS 6 since it gives a choice to configure your phone better. Apart from that the malfunctioning of the latest Apple maps installed in the iPhone has leveraged an advantage for the Samsung model. Samsung still continues to use Google maps which are quite trustworthy by many still.
