Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: It’s More Than Specs

By  | 

There are already loads of videos online that show comparisons between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5, but now that Jelly Bean is getting rolled out, we should see some new ones from time to time, taking into account the new Android 4.1 features.

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: comparing more than just specs

If you’ve hit a dead end when pitting the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 since they are almost indentical in hardware terms, here’s something you won’t find on the specs sheet. There’ a new video comparing the handsets in relation to HTML5. HTML 5 will probably be the future for smartphones, with Apple behind this all the way, as their MacBooks overheat when playing Flash content on browsers until today. One of the main reasons for the lack of Flash is battery drainage too.

HTML 5 is a very broad church – it covers lots of different things, and some web browsers have support for only some parts. So, it’ll be some time before it’s fully adopted. This first video shows the HTML5 features that are on the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3. The video shows which of the two platforms works better on an everyday basis, as well as which device works best with HTML 5 overall. You’d think it’d be the iPhone, so get a coffee and sit back, as this vid lasts for 20 minutes.

The second video looks at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5, including a look at the phones’ main features, as well as ratings for design and so forth. If you need to remind yourself of the specs, watch the video, as it’s only seven minutes long. And then see which one deserves a place in your pocket.
