    You are joking right? Androidforums has been littered with this very topic. Almost like there is an insecurity that must be remedied by refuting the "fruit company"and its products. If you remove your selective reading lenses you will find this forum provides countless entries of people who have left android for iPhone or better yet, tried android and couldn't come back fast enough.

    I'll gladly accept your other points. But this one in particular is nowhere near accurate.

    Well this thread is just shambles. All you people want some straight facts? Well then listen up. I'm not here to influence my opinion or to be dumb enough to participate is your childish arguments. I have owned a DROID, DROID X, galaxy nexus, iPhone 4 and 4s, and now I'm on the s3. I have had only 1 issue with my iPhone 4s locking up and it was a hardware issue. I went through 7 droids, 1 DROID X (it was just old and worn out), nexus was the worst device I have ever owned. IPhone 4s was awesome, I miss it. IPhone 4 was OK, I think the reason I didn't like the 4 is because I hated iTunes and the screen size plus it wasn't overly smooth like 4s. (now that I'm using the s3... Oh I just don't understand why people like large screen phones). I hope to get a iPhone 5 soon. The s3 has is pros but it's not for me. I hate the super amoled screen. Looks like trash unless your close to full brightness. Battery life is actually really good and we can congratulate qualcomm on the S4 processor for that. Responsiveness on the s3 is good when u first get it and after factory restores, just like other Android phones. For some reason the DROID X never had this issue and the DROID was fine until they updated it. To make the s3 usable I had to use a custom texting app and keyboard. The s3 is a good piece of hardware that needs some bug fixes, and overall I'm happy with it but regret the getting rid of my 4s. The Android market is about as trashed as the metal on the titanic. It catching up to apple store only because of the countless number of junk apps.

    Android, oh the customizable possibilities... Yea right.. One you some sort of launcher or crap on it its as slow as the phone u replaced. This is where iOS really shines.

    And tonyou guys talking about the battery life... Get with it. If you put and bigger batter in a device its going to last longer.. Who would have thought?? Wanna know something crazy? The i5 battery is not but like 7mwh larger then the 4s. And it powers a larger screen and LTE and still can keep up with or surpass the 4s. That's amazing. What not amazing is slapping a big battery on a inefficient piece of hardware and called it efficient and effective. My brother gets amazing life out of his rezound with the extended battery. So I should compare his battery life with my 4s?

    Yep, time to end this thread. It's served its purpose and proven beyond any doubt that the iphone 5 is by far better than the S3. I already look forward to the "why the iphone 5 or 5S is better than the galaxy S4" thread. And I know you do too..

    Default Why the iphone 5 is better than the galaxy s3

    im not sure its better, it is different.

    id have an apple device over an android one, but thats because of apples infrastructure:

    app store
    consistant UI (mostly)
    itunes
    itunes match
    icloud
    etc

    it all means that each of my apple devices (macbook air, ipad mini, iphone, apple tv, airplay speakers) work as a frontend to my data and the experience is comparable on each.

    the best that you can do from anyone else is from microsoft:

    win8 laptop
    win8 phone
    windows rt surface

    google dont have a desktop os, and its unfair to compare their chromebooks to a mac or pc
    please check out my blog, I have a huge apple mac tips section that gets updated constantly

    To the OP: if you really want objective data on which phone is better, then look no further than Anandtech.com. The have an extensive review of the iphone 5 and compare test results to the GS3.





    In all performance categories the iphone is better than the GS3. Anandtech, does the most comprehenisve and objective testing AFAIK.

    No. Just no. The CPU in the iPhone 5 clobbers the exynos in the S2 (assuming you have that and not the gimped snapdragon S3 version), and both have the same amount of ram.

    Everyone has their own choice, for me iPhone 5 is better from other phones. People who are using iPhone from the past years , it is not easy to change their phones easily. At the end Galaxy s3 is also a good smart phone with tons of features. Both of them rocks!

    I think it boils down to what you want out of a phone. Right now the top two phones out are the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3. Both top of their respective operating systems. Fanboys of each will surely bash the others.

    I had the iPhone 5 for a month but sold it on eBay. It just did not "wow" me. For me the reasons for coming back to Android had to do with freedom to use the phone as I want. The ability to send files via Bluetooth is important to ME. I also like the ability to simply click on a song in my library and use as a ringtone. No need to deal with iTunes.

    I still have a jaikbroken 4 that I use when the Rezound is charging. I like ios as well but at this point android suits me better.

    Also what's better on the spec sheet doesn't always transfer into better in reality....

    Weed been decriminalized here in Chicago for months now lol got that here but my statement comes from a sober mind the app store said themselves they have 700000 apps the play store just met that accomplishment and like I said the s3 and note2 alone kills the ip5 in the feature and hardware dept quad core ip5 man please lol
