While some features still go missing in Apple iPhone 5 when compared to the likes of Samsung Android phones, we can only hope that the next iPhone from Apple, hopefully the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will reduce the gap between your aspirations and the specifications. Do share with us in the comments section on what you feel like when talked about the Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 5 as after all it’s only your thoughts which matter the most.

So your Vote is for, designed for humans or designed by Apple?


  1. Apple 5 is good Samsung is bad

  2. Well, I think they are both great phones. I had a SII and then had to decide if going to the iPhone 5 or S3. Ended up with the new iPhone. Why, only one thing and that is the iPhone works seamless with other devices (apple products) and doesn’t crash. I was forever having to reboot or remove the battery out of the Samsung. And yes do resets and monitored apps. Otherwise both good

  3. Free iPod Survey

    Somebody essentially assist to make severely articles I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your website page and so far? I amazed with the research you made to create this actual submit amazing. Wonderful job!

  4. Anyone know of any plans that CASIO has for a smartphone ?

  5. Designed for humans.

  6. wait til samsung releases it’s galaxy s4

  7. I’d got an Iphone 4 and I wanted to test S3. Now I’m using iPhone ’cause is more easy to use for me. My little hands don’t arrive to the S3′ far letters in the keyboard. Need to use two hands when with the iPhone terminal only I need one.
    About battery, iPhone, 2 days; s3, not a complete day.

  8. Call me cheap, call me practical.

    I have an SGH-i727 Galaxy S2 Skyrocket. I am just now exploring fun with NFC. I secured this on contract for $20.00. When the contract runs out? I will just have to see what the best deal going is. Looks like it may be a refurb GS3, as there is no clue what GS4 will be like.

    Just don’t call me late for supper.

  9. Samsung Galaxy s3 is fuck all not lovable at any moment..

  10. The iphone 5 a phone designed for a company and not the people who Really USE them, Once you have a Samsung Galaxy s3 then you will know what a phone is really suppose to be like

  11. The iphone 5 a phone designed for a company and not the people who Really USE them

  12. Still s3 is better because the firmware modifications are many. Not only s3, but htc one x is even better than iphone 5. Iphone 5 is like apple pressed the iphone 4 and launched it just like we press oir clotjes daily. I have seen no change in look except the slim size. SAMSUNG AND HTC ROCKS..

  13. Definitely ill go for S3 not for iphone… why Apple did not mentioned the radiation value for the new device? i am sure that the S3 is much better with a far lower radiation rate …

  14. Did you test n experience the speed of iPhone 5 and galaxy S3? How can you say that iPhone is faster than galaxy s3?
    Read the specs of iPhone 5, it says twice faster than previous phone i.e., iPhone 4s not the S3. Again, apple didn’t reveal the actual processor specs though they said it’s A6 chip. Read gsmarena news, They have expresesed their doubts on A6 chip in conjunction with LTE connectivity in iPhone 5. Time will only tell the truth. No doubt that build quality is good, but user interface is boring on iOS compared to Android. Apps for iPhone are mostly paid. iPhone is costly, they are not launching the phone in India on the same day when it’s being released in USA and Europe. Apple do you think Indians can’t buy high priced products. Yes Indians are not crazy to buy phone just because of brand, we don’t buy high priced paper weights, we buy phones with high specs at a reasonable price like Sony xperia s, galaxy note 2, galaxy s3 and HTC one x. When apple is ignoring Indians at first launch then why should we buy apple products.
