The Galaxy S3 launched by Samsung was a challenge to the market share of Apple. And now with the rumored release of the iPhone 5 just around the corner, Apple is expected to take back what it lost in the last few months. However if rumors serve true, both the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 actually have more in common with one another than you would expect. Let’s check it out.
