iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Why I Gave Up On Apple Already

By  | 

There are many rumors going around about the devices that should be coming out in the next couple of months. These include the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the latest iPhone 5. Until then one of the best smartphones on the market is the Samsung Galaxy S3. It has broken pre-order records and is one of the most advanced smartphones on the market at the moment. So should you go out and get it or wait to see what Apple offer with the iPhone 5?

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Why I gave up waiting for Apple

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is out now of course and this is a bonus for those wanting a handset right now. The iPhone 5 is rumored for launch in one month and then there will be a wait for it to get onto the shelves. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has the superb 4.8 inch screen which is another plus as the iPhone 5 is expected to come with a screen of around 4 inches only.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 offers charging wirelessly and this is not something that you are likely to see on the iPhone 5 on its release. The S3 has a large battery that is removable and this is another thing that will let the iPhone 5 down as rumors suggest its battery will be much smaller (and Apple doesn’t provide the option to swap batteries on the go). Also the lack of an external SD card option is annoying with the iPhone 5 and this is something the Samsung Galaxy S3 has.

There are HDMI outputs with the Samsung Galaxy S3 so you can hook the handset up to HDTV if you desire. There has been nothing that suggests that Apple will include this with their latest generation iPhone 5.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to be updated the Jelly Bean before the month is up and then it will have the latest Android OS. This should bring Google Now and provide users with an update to S Voice, which is said to be better sounding than Siri.

While the iPhone 5 may be a huge hit with Apple fans, it is not expected to be better than the S3 in terms of hardware or software, but merely matching it. Given that I am not partial to either OS, I jumped on a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 last week already and haven’t regretted it… yet.
