Samsung Galaxy S3 has made the headlines quite a few times now, sometimes due to various US release dates, sometimes due the insane amount of pre-orders which the Samsung Galaxy S3 received and sometimes even due to an “explosion” which turned out to be a scam.
However, it is just impossible to ignore the Apple iPhone 4S , which alone makes up a pretty large amount of percentage in the smartphone market. Many potential customers of Samsung Galaxy S3 compare it with the Apple iPhone.
So here’s a list of 9 reasons why not to choose Apple iPhone 4S over the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Bigger Screen Size
Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a 4.8 inch screen which is almost 37% bigger than the 3.5 inches of the iPhone 4S. Another plus point for Samsung Galaxy S3 is that it features nearly 1.5x higher screen resolution than the 4S (720 x 1280 px vs 640 x 960 px).
It is a clear win for Samsung Galaxy S3 in this category too. The S3 features a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor while on the other hand iPhone 4S comes with the Apple A5 Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9. In simple words, the S3 has 3.5 times faster CPU clock speed than the 4S.
Apart from the common connectivity options like 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc, Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with NFC, DLNA and HDMI output where as the iPhone 4S lacks all the extra connectivity options.
Better Front Camera
iPhone 4S owners will completely agree with me, video chat is a total disaster on the 4S. However Samsung Galaxy S3 does the trick flawlessly with its 1.9 MP camera i.e 6.3x more megapixels than the iPhone 4S 0.3 megapixel camera.
There is nothing more irritating when you try to open a webpage on your iOS device and all what you get is a question mark in a small box. It has been quite some time since the iOS devices have stopped supporting flash and it looks like this is going to stay this way forever.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S have almost the same weight and thickness, however, just for the sake of mentioning. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is 0.7mm thinner and 7 grams lighter than the 4S.
iPhone 4S being an Apple product, does not have a removable battery and can only be charged via the standard USB cable which comes out of the box with the iPhone 4S. Samsung Galaxy does not have any of the above flaws while maintaining almost 50% of more battery capacity than the iPhone 4S(2,100mAh vs 1,418mAh).
The S3 comes with a 1.0GB of RAM while the iPhone 4S comes with only .5 GB of RAM. Another plus point for Samsung Galaxy S3 is that unlike iPhone 4S, it has a microSD card slot.
Free Navigation Software
Google Navigation is something that has been available in all the Android smartphones for ages now. However, Apple still doesn’t have turn by turn navigation in its handsets and users are forced to install third party map apps which are often paid.
This concludes the list of 9 reasons why you should not go for the Apple iPhone 4S over Samsung Galaxy S3. Feel free to comment if you think we missed out anything.
