Both of the devices have superb high res screens, LTE, dual core processors, a good battery, great design and 8 megapixel cameras. However after comparison, the folks over WirelessWeek announced the iPhone 5 beat the Samsung Galaxy S3 by a small margin.

So why did WW pick the iPhone 5 win over the Samsung Galaxy S3? The blog points out that there is no getting away from the fact that the iPhone is a very reliable handset. It also wins on points for its strong design and its software. The iPhone 5 has been improved and now it offers turn by turn navigation, Passbook, Siri 2.0 and more in iOS 6.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes withgreat features too, however sometimes the experience with the handset is less than smooth adds WW. It can be customized thanks to Android 4.0 ICS and it will get the update to Jelly Bean soon. However for some Android is not as easy to use as iOS, and the headache of knowing whether you will get an update or not just weeks after your device has launched is perplexing to many to say the most.

The iPhone 5 has one of the best displays of a handset thanks to its Retina display and at 4 inches it is not as large as the 4.8 display of the Samsung Galaxy S3, however it will suit all hand sizes. Check out WirelessWeek’s full review here.
