The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the best-selling handsets this year and continues to sell well. But can it rival iPhone 5, the successor to the highest selling single handset this year – 4S? Here are 5 advantages the Samsung Galaxy S3 will likely have over Apple’s iPhone 5:
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: S3’s advantages (predictions)
The display is mind blowing at 4.8 inches and outdoes the 3.5 inches of the iPhone that’s on the market at present. It would even beat the screen that is rumored for the iPhone 5 – around 4 inches.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a great battery of 2100mAh and more importantly the battery is removable. This has always been a problem with iPhones and something which will not be expected to change when the iPhone 5 is revealed (rumors hint at a 1,440mAh battery).
The 1.4GHz Exynos quad core processor is among the best in any smartphone and whether the processor that Apple includes in their iPhone 5 is able to beat it will remain to be seen. Furthermore, the US version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 boasts 2GB RAM, something that is highly unlikely to be included in the iPhone 5 (the 4S only has 512MB RAM). As we’ve seen with past iPhone and iPad models, Samsung is the one’s behind producing Apple’s processors so we’re not expecting something all that different from what’s in the S3 other than possibly a different clocked speed.
While iPhone apps get a lot of attention, the Google Play Store has grown well since its inception and the preloaded S-apps that come with the Samsung Galaxy S3 are fantastic too.
NFC is the future for smartphones and the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with support for it. At the moment the iPhone lacks NFC support but we will have to wait and see whether Apple include it in the iPhone 5 when it is released.
Other advantages the Samsung Galaxy S3 will more than likely have over the iPhone 5 include an external microSD card, HDMI output port Flash support.
