Reviews:

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3.

If you are thinking about Samsung as a worthy alternative to an iPhone you are not along. We compiled several comparison points for you.

Pros:

Both phones have their advantages that can be important for some people more than others.

iPhone is easier to use especially in one-handed operation. It also has intuitive and well-polished software that makes a difference in everyday use.

Galaxy S3 on the other hand has better specs - sharper sound, bigger screen-size, popular video formats support, longer battery life, simpler external connectivity.

iPhone's glass and steel design is more appealing than Samsung's plastic-bodied construction.

If you are a bit on tech side - Galaxy S3 would offer better options with free software, micro-SD and lack of restrictions.

Concerns:

These are excellent phones so areas of concern are usually outside of basic everyday usage.

Media support could be a pain for iPhone users. You cannot transfer files to computer except through iTunes. The iPhone handles only limited range of video formats meaning most videos loaded or unloaded will need to be transcoded.

Moneywise, iPhone's higher price tag gets even higher due to limited unlocking options.

For Samsung, Android operating system is harder to get to grips with and wide body can make it surprisingly difficult to operate with one hand.

Verdict:

Choosing between iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 is a tough decision and usually comes to individual preferences.
