iPhone 5 Vs. Samsung Galaxy 3

iPhone 5 Vs. Samsung Galaxy 3

The iPhone 5 vs. the Samsung Galaxy 3: and the winner is… Comparing the superiority of one smart phone over the other really depends on what camp you’re in: Apple or Android? Making comparisons between the performance of the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy 3 is like selecting your attire. The real question to consider is what purchase makes you feel more comfortable and look better and what best fits your lifestyle?

If history is an indicator, the selection process will essentially be determined by a single benchmark: are you an Apple fan or an android fan? In terms of pure functionality, what differentiates one product from the other largely deprives either from having a decisive edge over the other. So, it’s not likely that a diehard android fan will switch to an Apple product and aficionados of iPhones are not likely to opt for an android.

With a popularity race this tight, benchmarks aren’t all that relevant. If it helps, here is a brief description of some of each mobile devices pluses and minuses.

Speed

Although most benchmarks give the iPhone 5 the edge in speed, the difference between the two is so insignificant that it doesn’t constitute a tie-breaker. According to GeekBench’s benchmark study, the iPhone 5 scored 169 points faster than the Galaxy duel-core Snapdragon S4 model. However, the quad-core Galaxy S3 beats Apple’s top of the line iPhone 5 by 170 points.

Ergonomics

The new Samsung Galaxy has been criticized for the placement of the “Home” button being sandwiched between the two touch- sensitive ‘Back” and “Menu” buttons. A fatter “Home” button would improve functionality.  The Galaxy’s buttons and ports are located around the outside edge of the device. They are ergonomically well placed and user-friendly. The device is light and thin fit easily into the hand for such a relatively large phone.

The iPhone 5 is slightly smaller but has a heftier feel than its competitor. Ergonomically, the iPhone is well designed with little change from its smart phone predecessors in feel and appearance.

Under the Hood

The U.S. model of the Galaxy S3 is a duel core device versus a quad core model available outside of the states. According to PC Magazine’s assessment, iPhone 5’s Snapdragon beats Galaxy’s duel core SGS3 while Galaxy’s quad core S3 is slightly than Apple’s latest addition the smart phone universe. Let’s call it a wash.
