Much in line with Apple philosophy the followers just stole the ad made cosmetic changes and called it their own ... what a makred similarity in thought process :D

I think only chink in Samsung's armour now is their continous use of cheap plastics in their flagship phones............ Samsung should change it's strategy with their next flagship phone, and should use premium materials atleast for their flagships............... And ya samsung we expect better design from you next time............

Though iFans are defending iPhone 5 with all their might, but inside their heart they are also feeling let down by the launch of 'iPhone 4S stretched'........... I have visited many apple centric sites and blogs and have seen comments of many iFans. Over there, and majority of them were sad and angry on Apple for releasing just a incremental update over iPhone 4s.............

In the interest of balance and neutrality, I've created the final version of this table to show how pointless this fanboy war really is.


I tried to find more features for the iPhone, so I found they came out roughly equal. I also added metric conversions to the measurements, and removed all mentions of 'HD' from both. I took away minor features like 'tilt to zoom' from the Galaxy, because I'm sure the iPhone has plenty of those too. Some of it was based on Alex Schot's modification. I also included the most important (to some people) feature. And yes, you can play Angry Birds on both.

Feel free to share this around the internet.

fair enough, you must have added that android has integration with any social network as long as there is an app for it

Hmmm social network support was built into my RAZR, no apps needed, you just log in.
Your work on the parody was clean, no artifacts, good work!

I like how you added an extra line to the iPhone's list just to have it bigger than Samsung's. A non feature ofc, what else ;).

IPhone 5 - 1601
S3: 1560

So much for the spec sheet....

I wonder how can they compare a phone optimised for QUAD CORE with a phone optimised for DUAL CORE in a DUAL CORE Benchmark?

Or maybe I don't understand how that benchmark works?

And wasn't that S3's score for ICS and not for JB? I think I've read somewhere that with JB, S3 scored over 1700.

To all the people saying it: there is not just 450k apps for the iPhone. There's 700k. The 250k apps made for iPad are a standalone number, not subtracted from that 700k. No one remembers when apple heralded 500k apps passed for iPhone? So did they all the sudden lose 50k apps? Use your brains people. But other than that most things everyone is saying is accurate, just not the apps. Don't try to twist around facts, even if you dislike the phone. Now I'm just waiting for my lumia to get more than 100k apps :)

Once again Apple fanboys go crazy over fact and try to market theirs as technically superior, when they can't even get a basic technical specification right.

Fans of apple have even been raving about their "totally different plug" having host capabilities and the abiliity to now hook up keyboads, mice etc. when other phones have had that capabliity for a while now.

i'm an iphone user but I would not say it is superior than the s3 .. design wise it's a close call for me. but i have yet to decide which to purchase.. if the batt life of the s3 is on par or much better than the ip5 on a 2G then i'll take it!

anyway how long does the batt of the s3 last compare to ip4s

Not to mention expensive non-std non-USB connection for charging and data transfer. Locks you in to their products so they can GOUGE you. EU has mandated that microUSB to be the mobile std for charging and data transfer

I had to scratch my head on that one... always figured it was only DualCore. But giving Apple the benefit of the doubt ... quad-core 1Ghz is still lower than 1.4Ghz SGSIII.

A6 is dual core base on ARM A15

It's what's inside that counts! Just like what is in between your ears. Tell me you don't have any plastic anywhere in your home or car?
Metal impedes radio signals. Not the best material for Wifi or phone reception. And maybe we are just smart shoppers who aren't dumb enough to give away money for the perceived status symbol. Maybe iFolks are even insecure and need a crutch to make you feel worthy.
