Samsung has always made sure that there's a plethora of settings in the camera program of its handsets, and the case with the Galaxy S III is not different. You can tweak pretty much everything from the resolution through the ISO sensitivity to the focusing mode. With the iPhone 4S, you can simply choose whether to enable HDR mode or not, and that's that.

The iPhone 4S manages to capture slightly better images with its 8MP iSight camera. Their advantage is mostly found with the higher level of detail and slightly better exposure. The pictures of the Galaxy S III aren't that far behind, though, as it's also a wonderful camera phone.

It's the opposite when it comes to the 1080p video that these guys record. Although the sound captured through the microphone of the iPhone 4S is better, the video itself looks better from the Galaxy S III, due to being sharper. Otherwise, color reproduction is the same on the two phones.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is definitely the better phone when it comes to the multimedia experience, and it bests the iPhone in both the hardware and software aspects here.

Although the iPhone 4S has a more mature content ecosystem, the Galaxy S III gives you the convenience to easily transfer your files to the phone, and then enjoy them on the much larger Super AMOLED screen. When you factor in the presence of a microSDXC card slot, it also becomes clear that you'll be able to store more stuff on the GS III.

There really isn't so much of a difference in the music players of both device, but we do like that fact that the GS III has all of the settings placed within the actual music player, whereas with the iPhone 4S, you always have to exit the music player, open the Settings app and navigate to the music settings if you want to tweak something.
