Apple iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3 Battle [Rumors]


The 2 smartphones let the rumor mill bubble truly, so now there’s a beautiful spectacular record of specs. This enables us to match each units and arrange a primary bet, which is the simpler of the 2 gadgets bestseller.

After all, all recognized options of pure hypothesis, as neither producer has commented on any data. Nonetheless, we will be able to draw a primary résumé, in order to create the primary comparability. In our “combat of the giants”, we evaluate probably the most regularly mentioned specification.



Release Date:
The Samsung S3 Galaxy will be officially presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The MWC will be held on the weekend of 24 to 26 Held in February and, according to the testimony of Samsung presented its new flagship is the last day. So that the device from Samsung some time before the new iPhone will come on the market. Questionable whether Samsung can draw any benefits.

The iPhone 5 is expected to be presented in the second half of this year. Whereby the company from Cupertino has enough time to learn from the mistakes of the Galaxy S3 and get an error-free smartphone on the market. Some time ago a rumor was circulated in the blogosphere, that the presentation on 05 To be held October 2012, the next anniversary of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. However, this rumor seems to be far-fetched.

For the data of publication, we will not distribute any points.




Processor and memory
on this point there is probably the biggest gap between the rumors of both devices. Both the iPhone 5, as well as in the Galaxy S3, rumors of Dual-Core and Quad-core processors are in circulation.

For the Samsung Galaxy S3 total of three different processors are available or have they emerged as favorites on the basis of rumors. As the first of the Tegra processor 3 is made by NVIDIA to choose from, this is powered by four cores. This brings the processor has a clock rate of up to 1.7 GHz. Furthermore, there are two processors in-house by Samsung on the list. This includes the Exynos 4212 (Quad-Core with 1.5 GHz per core) and the Exynos 5250 (Dual-Core 2 GHz per core). Which of these processors will be built is unclear . When memory size of 2GB was called by various sources. However, this is probably more between 1 – 1.5 GB lie.

Even in the iPhone 5 most likely a quad-core processor will be installed, because this are already first information in the latest version of IOS  appeared. Thus Apple iPad with their new, imagine the A6-processor and then block it in the new iPhone 5th This strategy, Apple has used successfully in previous years. For memory, there are still no specific rumors, but this is very probably trumps with at least 1 GB.

As you can see both devices might have similar specifications in terms of processor and memory. Even if the iPhone is a small clock and a little less of RAM, the device is equivalent, if not run even better. As is known, the matching of the components and the software is adjusted accordingly.

iPhone 5: 1 Galaxy S3: 1

The display size of the two devices will probably be quite different, because both devices, there are some speculations that have become compacted.

The South Korean manufacturer of smartphone rumored to get a 4.65-inch AMOLED Super Plus HD display. With a questionable resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels should trump the device. Further speculation that, should a 3D version of the Galaxy S3 come on the market. Apparently that was  the use of 3D technology from Samsung confimed , but we still grope in the dark appear, if the Galaxy S3 with a 3D screen.

The counterpart of Apple will probably get a retinal display with a maximum size of 4 inches. The resolution will be adjusted accordingly so that the sixth generation of Apple iPhones can still apply with a retinal display. A larger version of the screen is considered very unlikely. Because Steve Jobs had already repeatedly spoken out against bigger smartphone and want to guarantee a convenient operation of the device. Therefore, we will certainly not get much bigger iPhone this year to face.

Of course, the size of the display pure matter of taste. The pros and cons of larger displays should cancel each other out. For this reason, both devices will receive one point.

Operating system
is of course equipped with the new iPhone back to the popular Apple operating system IOS, which will deliver in conjunction with the hardware perfect results. The system is currently running in the version number 5.0.1 and will certainly develop to final publication still continues. Presumably the company from Cupertino is the IOS version 6.0 on the WWDX present in June. What interesting features this version brings with it is not currently known.

Android on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to be found. With the new flagship of Samsung’s newest Android system should start by once again properly. Until the release of the iPhone is probably Jelly Bean sees the light of day. Sorry to say this should not change the update policy from Samsung, the Galaxy gets S3 probably not until February of next year, an update. What the point is clearly to Apple.

Internal memory
The Samsung Galaxy S3 will probably come in three versions. The memory sizes of 8, 16 and 32 GB might be offered to the end use. Presumably, this memory can be augmented by a microSD card.

The iPhone 5 will also come in three versions on the market and take over the old memory sizes from the previous model. Accordingly, the sizes 16, 32 and 64 GB are available. An extension of the memory with a microSD card is very unlikely. Therefore, the point goes to the Galaxy S3.

At this point, the two companies agreed, for both companies to build, according to rumors, a camera with between 10 – 12 megapixels. A statement about the quality of the images can not be struck now, because the number of megapixels does not say anything about the final quality. For this reason, we can assign no points in this category.

Data network
for both devices is very likely the LTE can be used. However, the Galaxy S3 is expected in the LTE variant is not available. The iPhone could be 5, but even in this country receive the LTE technology. The only disadvantage is the battery consumption, this point should, however, both manufacturers get a grip.

In this country, the LTE technology are not yet a decisive criterion for a smartphone, because the coverage will probably only be available in 2013 accordingly. Therefore, both devices receive one point.

That can be drawn from the rumors – – As we see, the two do not really give much information. What you create a real comparison until then, if both devices are on the market. Of course, Apple has the great advantage that they have the later release date. Eliminating the possibility exists the iPhone 5 additional functions to donate to outdo the competition.
