I'm be straight here, i like both product! why u ask?

iPhone
1. Airplay And Mirroring.
2. Gadgets from speakers, dj equipment, iHealth products, mini projectors, wireless cams, iCADE, iControlpad and a few other gamepad support and more.
3. More games&apps then any App-store u ever gonna find on a android market today.

Note:
Picture Sharing on a android? that's, i use Bluetooth for picture, video and data file sharing (though, its only for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch)!!! unless i upload it to a file host website like DropBox, social website like Facebook, or email .

Android:
1. Open source, do more without much limit that apple won't let you do, unless JailBreak.
2. Better specs, higher processor, more RAM, better camera, better screen, NFC and so on.
3. lol, a removable Battery!!!

Note:
I really don't need a bigger phone unless i want a Tablet in my pocket but then again that would be stupid of me, 3.5" to a 4" screen display is ok but if it goes an bigger i'm probably have to gain weight cause i hands of a doctor.

"1. Airplay And Mirroring."
Airplay, streaming music from an online storage to your phone? Google Music (player) does that. Can sync your music as well, wirelessly, over your WiFi or cell network. As for mirroring, not sure what that is. Can you explain that one for me?

"2. Gadgets from speakers, dj equipment, iHealth products, mini projectors, wireless cams, iCADE, iControlpad and a few other gamepad support and more."
Except you can't anymore, unless you pony up for a $30 adapter.

Not sure what your "note" is referring to. Are you able to better explain?

As for the screen size argument, that's a poor one. Physical size doesn't increase much, it's a smaller bezel that decreases to accommodate a larger screen. It's not THAT much bigger.

You know why I am not a fan of that phone from "St. Sammy?" It's too big for me to consider as a phone. ...but that's the general mentality here: "bigger is better! Faster! More energy consumption even for menial tasks!!"

...except when it comes to far better pixel-density (like a so-called retina display) or a better connection like Thunderbolt. Then "that's unnecessary!" :D

MaximumMike

There are more measures of screen quality than just pixel density. Although it is an important factor, it doesn't make a fantastic screen by itself. This has been proven over the last couple years since the original iPhone 4 was released. Most Android phones on the market are considered to have a better screen than the iPhone. Nobody here is against better pixel density. We're just not in favor of putting up with a crappy screen to have it. And why would I want thunderbolt if I have a device that has WiFi, bluetooth, NFC, and accepts a memory card? You may think Apple's junk is awesome, but most of us aren't impressed by stale technology.

I think the phone wars are riduculous, however, I will add my two cents:

I think both mobile operating systems are excellent, they are doing pretty good at giving us useful features that come in handy in the real world.

I think all of the phones we have today are remarkable, looking at the underlying technology and engineering behind them.

From my personal experience however android phones have been buggy and irritating to deal with. (I have an LG Revolution). I personally want a Windows Phone or a iPhone (to get some diversity). I am not picky with technology because I realize the hard work and dedication it takes to make a product, but I will say there is something I am particularily picky about: Reliability. The iPhone has proved countless times that it is a reliable phone that gets the job done. The OS is fluid and stable and the ecosystem for apple devices is linked together quite nicely. I also admire the engineering behind the phone. I will leave with this. The iPhone is a stable phone, with a stable OS, and a stable set of useful features for the "average person."

When I saw the ad I thought they were making fun of the court ruling.

So when I got the Samsung Focus I noticed one of the distinct "pros" of the iphone was its heft while the Focus was too light and that was established as a con. That sense of a solid build quality I guess. I can actually understand that to a point. Light materials have a cheap feel to them. So when apple touts that the new iPhone is so much lighter it was laughable.

Does it really matter? I mean isn't the deciding factor on the best phone the end user? I know people that still have flip phones and are perfectly content with them. Sure the Galaxy certainly has features that make it seem better than the iPhone, just as the iPhone has features that makes it better than the Galaxy however point is it all comes down to personal preference. Besides this is Maximum PC NOT Maximum Phone! So who gives a fuq? Getting tired of the anti-Apple crap!

warlok180

Agreed.

I think everyone is entitled to whatever phone or computer that they want. I personally prefer PCs and Windows but also have Apple products as well and love them.

MaximumPC continues to incite the Apple hate because it generates the most comments of any article posted on the website.

I can understand some of the hate because of all the stupid lawsuits and what not, but it's all pretty senseless. All of the lawsuits should stop and the companies should focus on giving us consumers great products and great user experiences.

Smells of desperateness on Samedung's part...

I take it that you are a big fan of iDevices, and of the opinion that anything anyone else makes, is a horrible product. Regardless of the product.

What exactly brought you to this decision?

avatar

warlok180

I will admit to loving the iDevices but by no means a hardcore Apple only person. And no, I do not think that other products out there are horrible. Everyone is entitled to love their respective products from said companies. I love my PC and love to build them when it's time for updating them. That's why I come to this website and to MaximumPC magazine.

The problem I'm having is the fact that so much hatred is thrown out (and I believe personally due to the editors on this website to foster that hate) at anybody here who has any liking towards Apple products and that automatically makes every company that competes with Apple the good guy. Conversely, I'm not saying that Apple's been the good guy either. I hate all the lawsuits; however, all the companies are suing each other and it just ultimately means that the patent system needs to be reformed.

I love technology and where all these products have taken us and how they've made our lives easier in so many ways. That's why we've got great choices out there. I don't think anybody's wrong to get a Galaxy S3 or Android phone anymore than I do the person that runs out and buys an iPhone. It's all based on what you like.

As far as Samsung and Apple go, those two need to kiss and make up and go back to competing and innovating and rediscovering their strong relationship they previously had and may still have in the manufacturing side. And these kind of ads just cause more fanboy hate on both sides.

My apologies for allowing myself to sink to that level in the previous comment.

Hmm, I just don't see how anyone could mistake an S3 with any iPhone!!!! I believe this was a large part of Apple's argument.

ooops, they forgot to add that crapple's "new and innovative" iphone5 can't use data/voice at the same time on sprint or verizon networks. it is totally acceptable though because it was a decision made by crapple therefor it is the best thing for everyone. crapple knows what you want before you do

avatar

akrazyassho

Lies, none of their phones can do both at once on these carriers. Has nothing to do w/ apple or the iphone.

avatar

SPreston2001

Umm my EVO LTE on Sprint can definitely do voice and data at the same time...

avatar

athlon11

WRONG!! All 4G Android phones and all 4G Windows phones on Verizon can do voice and data when in 4G areas and the GS3 can do voice and data at the same time on 3G as well. Do your homework before opening your mouth.

- GS3: you can change the MicroSD card yourself (that means you can buy the 16GB and save $$$ buying a 64GB 3rd party card).
- GS3: you can replace the battery yourself.
- Android: you can simply drag and drop files between your PC and Phone/Tablet (no mandatory tourist circuit to iTunes).
- Android: you do not have to buy a Mac to develop for your phone.
- Android: you do not have to subscribe to a developer program.
- Android: you do not have to give 30% of your software sales to Apple.
- Android: you're not stuck with one hardware manufacturer.

Think Reasonable > Think Different.

To add to your first line...

-You can connect an external hard drive or USB stick through USB on the go, making your storage capability nearly limitless.
-You can use a PS3 controller for games that support it. (with USB OTG)

All that video does is prove that late night talk shows are tired, old, and running the same schticks they did ten years ago.

When you put them up against each other like that - feature to feature you gotta give the win to the Galaxy. Perhaps this is the real reason to go after Samsung?

avatar

PCLinuxguy

Apple will always try to crush their competition by suing them. Why? because Apple fails to innovate and absolutely hates that it's losing ground to Android because it's going places and taking the crown. Add to that Samsung who is making really nice phones (they're not the only ones but this is specific to Samsung). Put them together and we see why Apple got it's panties in a bunch and took them to court. crApple does nothing but whine when other companies surpass them, but then fail to bring out anything to compete with and despite all that, the iSheep continue to buy and rave about the sub par products and try to come up with excuses or reasons crApple is better when pitted in a debate against those who point out how Apple's stuff is just a turd with a fancy casing.

avatar

TechLarry

Funny how other companies don't come out with stuff until Apple does.

I guess you could say they innovate off of Apple Idea's...

Caboose

Cite examples.

Cannot argue with pure logic. \\//

ronmccord

People who buy Apple will mindlessly continue to do so for the most part. Overpaying for this tech and not even understanding it for allot of them is just par for the course

avatar

jonnyohio

They pay 3x the price for the same hardware a windows user pays because it 'just works', but all over software/gaming forums I see Mac users writing things like: 'I can't get this to work on my Mac.', not to mention other things, like random microphone problems that two people I work with started having after a software update. Yeah it just works lol

Must be a slow day at MPC if we are down to comparing the ADS between competing products...

Well, Samsung seems to have forgotten to mention the Camera... (perhaps those specs don't measure up so well), or the processor... makes them feel a bit sneaky

But, If I were shopping for one (or the other) - which I'm not currently, the only feature which matters to me is the battery, both overall life, and (more importantly) user replaceability. Frankly both will last about a day or so if you are even intermittently actually *using* the phone or apps. So NOT being able to pop one out and another in in a pinch is a freaking giant handicap for the iphone - again.

The GS3 has a better front camera (1.9MP vs 1.2MP), and the rear cameras are both 8MP, autofocusing, LED-flashed units with 30fps 1080p video recording. Samsung's 8MP camera is one of the best on the market right now, while Apple's is untested but will probably be similarly impressive.

As for the processors, Apple doesn't release specs on its chips. It's called an A6 and it has two cores, that's all we know. Samsung is also using a dual core, in their case, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4.

They don't mention the PPI either.

I'm surprised Apple didn't do NFC. That seems like something that could take off. Especially since Google and Microsoft will be looking to get some use out of it.

avatar

Brad Chacos

PPI, according to Samsung:

Galaxy S III = 306

iPhone 5 = 326

In other words, both rock.

avatar

keyzs

yup... iShitZ customers will sure be able to see the extra 20 PPI as they are so blind!!!
