Now iPhone 5 has been launched and available for sale, people swarm to the Apple Stores all over to buy this new iPhone. There is also Samsung Galaxy S3which was launched recently in May 2012 and available at most of the Smartphone vendors. So which one are you choosing?Apple has witnessed doubled pre-orders for its new iPhone after the launch although critics don’t think Apple came up with a revolutionary iPhone as expected. Rather they praise the Galaxy S3 which has some improved features as compared to iPhone 5. So let’s make a comparison between the two and you judge.

Here you go:

Processor and Memory:

Galaxy S3: 1.4 GHz Quad core Exynos processor; 16/32 GB, extendible to 64GB
iPhone 5: A6 dual-core processor- clocked with 1GHz;  16/32/64 GB


Galaxy S3: Android Ice Cream Sandwich, soon to be updated to Jelly Bean
iPhone 5: iOS 6; expected to be the best platform for iPhone developers


Galaxy S3: 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen with max resolution of 720 x 1280
iPhone 5: 4 inchHD LCD display screen with 640 x 1136 maximum resolution

P.S: iPhone 5 screens looks pretty big with quality media playback and gaming. Apple once stated that its iPhone size is the standard size for a Smartphone. But later proved wrong by companies like Samsung and HTC, Apple itself increased the size of its iPhone.

Size and Weight:

Galaxy S3: 4.69 ounces(133 grams); 8.6 mm thick
iPhone 5: 20 grams lighter weighing 3.95 ounces (112 grams); 7.6 mm thick


Galaxy S3: 8MP Rear Face Camera; 1.9 MP Front Facing Camera
iPhone 5: 8MP Rear Face Camera; 0.9 MP Front Facing Camera

NFC(Near Field Communication): A technology to enable fast radio communication between two devices.
Galaxy S3: YES;           iPhone 5: NO

In summary, both the devices are competitive and possess different advantages.  Users need to match their needs and pick accordingly. At the same time, iPhone application development and Android application development both are improving day by day.
