iPhone 4S Or Galaxy S III ?

Apple’s iPhone 4S has been on the market for 6 months already and the Samsung Galaxy S III does not even hit keep racks until the end of May. However the iPhone 4S remains the finest selling mobile phone handset worldwide and the Galaxy S III claims to be the best handset in the world, period, so let us place them head-to-head, Mobile Nations style.

It can be immediately apparent just how much larger the Samsung Galaxy S III is, along with a whopping 4.8-inch, SAMOLED PenTile monitor. The Galaxy S III is so huge, it seems just like you might hollow it out and use it as an iPhone case. For people who don’t have a tablet, this is as near as you can get free of dont… Galaxy Note. On the downside, some (yours truly integrated), far like the color and pixel perfection of your non-PenTile iPhone- or HTC One X-style LCD LED show.Regrettably, Samsung still appears to be hugging to their Hasbro-style plastic-type material casings, which are frankly awful compared to the glass and metal a feeling of the iPhone, not to point out the unearthly great plastic materials Nokia and HTC have been using currently.The software side is a lttle bit of a combined bag for the Galaxy S III as well, with the most recent edition of Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich all loaded up, but hidden beneath Samsung’s TouchWiz. Though designed to supply a more consumer-friendly (i.e. Apple-like) appear and feel, it also offers a slightly out-dated, Gingerbread-esque vibe to entire working experience. Pro users will without a doubt desire stock (and will without doubt flash to that particular, or something all-around it, at their original opportunity). The others includes some intriguing, progressive features like speak with wake, accelerometer move from texting to talking, and also variants of Siri and iTunes Match once again cloned instantly from Apple’s 2011 keynote.

The conclusion, on the other hand, remains the similar — Samsung makes fantastic, cutting-edge, entirely uninspiring devices. They can spin out specific features so impressive they literally build your nasal bleed, and yet they really don’t really know how to innovate. Any atom and pixel just sort of reminds you of something you have often seen just before from Apple or Nokia or another person. They may be mechanics more than artists. Of course, that means something a lot more to device divas rather than well known buyers. That’s why Samsung sells millions of these big boys, and why — like Apple — they’re actually successful.
Still, this time around I reckon HTC stole a measure on Samsung. The One X merely seems and feels like a far better next generation Android phone. (I’ve quarreled the Nexus One was far better for it’s time than both the Nexus S or Galaxy Nexus too — Nexus one was a look ahead to what Android could possibly be, Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus were both summations of what Android currently was.)Speaking of which, neither the Galaxy S III nor the One X are Nexus devices, on the other hand, so if/when Google declares Android Jellybean, it might possibly well be a race to see who gets it first… or last… or never.)
