Samsung and Apple have been battling in and out of the courts. In the courts Apple won when a jury said that Samsung had copied patents. Out of court Samsung maybe the winners with the Samsung Galaxy S3 beating the iPhone 5 as the best smartphone on the market. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been at the top since it was released and Apple hoped that they would knock it from the top spot with the iPhone 5, but have they managed it?
iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: S3 still better phone (DelcoTimes)
Delco Times put both of the devices to the test and the results were that the Galaxy S3 is still the best device. Why?
For performance there is very little to compare. iOS 6 is fast catching up with Android for features and hardware however DT finds that the S3 does has certain features that are missing from the iPhone 5, including NFC and Google maps.
When it comes to speed, both handsets are very similar and they both have great 8 megapixel cameras that take photos and video at the same time. They also have support for 4G. They are two of the best handsets currently on the market and the best one for you will be down to whether you want iOS 6 or Android.
If you are an Apple fan then the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 will win you over and the same applies to fans of Android, who will naturally choose the Samsung Galaxy S3 . It is important to keep in mind that Android offers more customisation options, while iOS 6 is easier to use off the bat.
The iPhone 5 is missing some of the sparkle that came with the release of the first iPhone, mainly because the competition has become much tougher since then, adds DT.
