    While the iPhone screen is smaller, it's much better quality - not the AMOLED blue-green of the S3 (and GNex). The smaller screen also makes it much easier to use one handed. I already dropped my Galaxy Nexus several types trying to use it one handed - the slippery plastic doesn't help.

    It all depends on your point of view.

    A coworker of mine, a long time iPhone user, got an SIII after seeing my Android device. The main reason for getting the SIII, in his words, was to never ever have to deal with that piece of $@!& iTunes crap software again. He really hated using iTunes. Now he is free of it. But, all is not well. His wife is now jealous and can't wait for her 2 year contract on her iPhone to expire so she can upgrade. She too hates iTunes and wants the freedom to play whatever music or videos she darn well wants to load on it. Neither of them are exactly software guros, so I'm surprised that they don't prefer iTunes, but they don't.
    They obviously never tried Google Play. I've never seen worse POS. It knowingly uploads multiple copies of every song if you synced to 2 PCs. Their answer is to manually deleted each if my 30,000 duplicates. What a POS. At least iTunes let's you get rid of dupes. After ver. 11 iTunes is even usable on a PC.

    But there are too many alternatives to list for Android. So no, I didn't even know that Google Play could be used.
    With iPhone, you had better like iTunes or you are in trouble.

    Not true. I use Groove instead of iTunes on the iPhone. I like the Groove interface and it had access to all the same music and playlists.

    Thinking you have to use iTunes on an iPhone is a common misconception. There are lots of alternatives.

    This thread will never end. This question is a matter of opinion and iPhone fans will never agree the GS3 is better so we're speaking on deaf ears. I mean GS3 is better but y'all don't hear me though

    Let me sum it up.

    iPhone = Over price for what it does and proprietary. Forcing you to use ITUNES. ( For a user that is inexperience and wants a toy )
    Android = You get what you pay for, non proprietary ( For someone who is experienced OR inexperienced and wants to be able to open up infinite abilities in their smart phone )

    Here is the related article from CNET: Galaxy S3 beats iPhone 5 for best device of 2012
    The Samsung galaxy s3 is the best-selling smartphone in the world in 2012, show that Galaxy s3 is better than iPhone 5.
    I'm neutral on the subject but best selling doesn't mean anything. Lil Wayne sells millions of albums and he's still a piece of talentless poo

    Also, I agree with Mak. I mean no-one is flaming now but we all know it happens too often when old topics are brought back cause some fanatics (on both sides) can't stand NOT putting their opinion into a discussion that ended a while ago. Let's try to let this topic stay buried. :P

    I was stuck between both the IP5 and S3 for over a month while waiting for my upgrade to kick in. Although I was impressed with all the features on the S3 I decided to go with the IP5 for a few reason.

    - IP5 feels like a much more premium device while the S3 just feels cheap.

    - Couldn't get use to the big size of the S3. I don't watch movies or play games on my phone therefore the extra large screen was not necessary. I mainly use my phone to text, make calls, send/recieve emails, browse the net and read articles. The IP5 has a reader feature that magnifies the page to make it much easier to read which is a great feature.

    - The IP5 holds its value much better than any cell phone on the market. I can literally use it for 2yrs and still get $300+ for it.

    - The IP5 interface and OS is very user friendly, organized, and easy to use. I personally don't need a phone with 7 home screens or widgets.


    These are just my reasons for going with the IP5. Get whatever fits your needs.

    Hi, I do not know if you have made ur decision or still pondering on the decision. But in simple words if u need an answer is that S3 is a technicaly advanced phone. Maybe that may mean a better phone to some people. IPhone on the other hand is not a phone its actually an art. Its a reflection of a genius called Steve Jobs. I bought a tab2 7 inch cause like you i was sucked into the android dream. But thats all about it. It has a hell lot of apps hell lot of storage hell lot of features but thats about it. Then i wanted a S3 . Soon i realized in practical life one 100 $ el chepo chinese clone ics loaded phone dont have much difference then the S3 . The apps u load from people out there crashes ur android too often. Looking at that i bought and iphone. I still hve both but i love to hold the iphone more. The feel cannot be in any other other thing called android.

    Uh oh, it's the thread police! I was actually commenting on the part when he said "it has a hell of a lot of storage, a hell of a lot of apps and a hell of a lot of features but thats about it". I was implying How can a device have so many apps, features, and a lot of storage and a person can say "that's about it", like that isn't much for a phone. I thought that was ironic and a tad bit funny, not the fact that his English wasn't great. You assumed the wrong thing and should probably take it easy next time b4 you're so quick to flash your thread police badge.

    If you have a problem with someone there's always a report button, and I don't see how he was making fun of anyone. If anyone, I say you was being rude.
