iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Which one is better?

in Iphone

The two smartphones Iphone 5, officially presented in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, and Samsung Galaxy S3 seem to be the most powerful ones on the market these days. The Iphone boasts a 4-inch "retina display" screen and will be the thinnest Apple smartphone at just 7.6mm thick while Samsung Galaxy S3 has an enormous 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, which displays vivid color and deep blacks at a maximum resolution of 720 x 1280. In terms of operating system, the iPhone 5 runs IOS 6, and Samsung Galaxy S3 runs the latest Android version “Ice Cream Sandwich”. Although the iPhone 5 will be LTE-powered, they may still lag behind compared to Samsung phones, which have long been LTE-capable. In addition, the iphone 5’s Siri will support for launching applications. Frankly, it's hard to say which device's interface functions more seamlessly or features the best apps - for the time being.
