Samsung Galaxy S3: 7 Reasons To Choose It Over Apple iPhone 5
Samsung Galaxy S3 has often been crowned as the iPhone 5 killer by many bloggers during its time of release, read on the below few words and you will get to know why exactly it deserves such a crown.
Twice The Clock Speed
The international version of Samsung Galaxy S3 has a Exynos 4412 Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor which means that it has almost 1.9x times clock speed as of the ARM A6 1.5 GHz dual core chip.
Samsung Galaxy S3 sports an internal memory of 16/32/64 GB, the iPhone 5 on the other hand also comes with the same amount of GBs packed with itself. However, there is a major difference between both of these smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S3 can enjoy an additional memory of up to 64GB due to the microSD card slot provided, as for the iPhone 5, just like any other iOS product there is no support for additional microSD cards.
Where is NFC?
Just like Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi, NFC has become the new standard for smartphones and while the Samsung Galaxy S3 has NFC, surprisingly enough the iPhone 5 is still unknown to posses this feature.
Even though, there aren’t many uses of the NFC technology currently(apart from data transfer), the technology has immense possibilities in future.
Bigger Is Better
The days of small screens are long gone now which could be easily proven by the sale figures of the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The Samsung Galaxy S3 features a 4.8 inch display which is really fun while playing games or watching long videos. As for the iPhone 5, well, it features a larger 4 inch display, but as it turns out, it isn’t that large after all.
Better Pixel Count
It is indeed shocking that an Apple product has been beaten in terms of pixel count from a Samsung device. The Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 has a resolution of 720 x 1280 px and 640 x 1136 px respectively. Which means that the S3 has 27% more pixels than the next gen iPhone.
Definitely A Better Battery
The Samsung Galaxy S3 features a battery that is removable, supports wireless charging and has almost 1.5 times the battery capacity(2,100mAh) than the iPhone 5(1,418mAh).
Far Better Front Camera
While the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 both have the same amount of Megapixels for the rear camera, the Galaxy S3 marks a clear win in terms of front camera, due to its 1.9 MP primary camera which is nearly 1.6 times more than the iPhone 5′s 1.2 MP front camera.
