iphone 5 OR Samsung Galaxy S3?

75 posts in this topic

Posted

I might be getting a smart phone soon and I am SUPER indecisive and cant decide which phone I want! I really thought i wanted the S3 but that was only because iphones didnt have 4G, but now that they do I am not sure what I want! Which phone is better? I really like them both but the S3 is kind of big and im not that nerdy so i dont know if i would use ALL of the stuff it can do. Also, it cant send emojis or if it does i think its a special keyboard that can that is weird. Also, im a really big fan of accessories that come with phones and i dont think that the S3 has many :( But i did find out that both the S3 and iphone 5 have clutch cases so i could put the phone there and have my money and ID attached to it. So, i just dont know what to do! Which one is better???? What should I do?

ALSO-- I LIKE THAT THE IPHONE HAS THAT LIFE PROOF CASE WHERE IF YOURE PHONE IS IN THE CASE IT CAN GET WET AND WONT GET DAMAGED

Go into a store and play around the phones on their model stands. Look through the app stores and compare, have a play and see which one you seem to like better.

Aside from the fact that Android does support emoji, if emoji support decides what phone you want, you probably want an iPhone.

They are pretty much the same performance wise, so it's probably a matter of what OS you like better. Android is a lot more customizable obviously, but iOS has better quality apps (in my opinion). Depends what you care more about.

Though the 5 has a much better screen than the S3, so if you want slightly better quality, go with the 5.

OK, either i'm too drunk to be replying, or the OP is taking the **** - and the responders are looking at the avatar and not the actual post.

1 - Surely the iPhone can do the same as the S3
2 - Someone wants to have their phone, money & ID all in one place?

And someone will choose the phone based on the accessories that you can get for it? Really?

I still don't see how you can say the Iphone 5 has a much better screen, when everything else says the contrary....

Get a Galaxy Note 2, which is the S3 on steroids and with a pen :)
It's huge, lovely, fast, beautiful, full of features and very easy to use.

But... Well.. Girls love the iPhone, so... :rolleyes:

No issues at all for all the companies (including my own) that I use them with.

My recommendation? The S3, of course. Android is a hands down winner.

The problem i have is i have muti folders in my inbox and with rules to divert emails into those folders, android doesnt allow push on selected folders, only on the inbox, while the iPhone allows me to select what folders to push. i think im using the correct terms please correct me if not.

If you want accessories, get the iPhone. I've had both, and both are very good phones. The iPhone has MUCH better apps, and hands down more accessories. If you don't like how big the S3 is, then don't get it. Either phone is gonna be a solid phone, but it sounds like you are better fit for the iPhone.

I don't care about accessories one way or another but my wife does, so she has an iPhone. But I totally agree with you, the iPhone has better accessories and apps. I still like Android better, myself.

No, it will last. Batteries have come along way even in the last 2 years. Alot of phones now don't have removable batteries anymore, iPhone, Droid Razr, the new HTC DNA. Battery on both phones are gonna be great for you.

Well speaking as someone who has yet to find something wrong with my s3, all I can say is, Get the iPhone :)
I'm being serious, The s3 is an amazing phone Bursting with features, but HTC have a better one, I could go on all day,
And from what I've understood in your OP, most of those would not be of much use to you, as you probably have no need for them, also if you are worried about the battery, you could get extended cover (I'm not sure if apple do it for batteries, if they do, then great, get theirs) for sealed phone batteries, some banks offer that, so do some, third party insurance companies.

I've owned over 20 android devices and 4 iPhones during the past 5 years.

Stay away from iPhones unless you are the type to buy "smartphones for dummies" books rather than getting **** done yourself. The android team clearly understands what people want and it keeps getting better than iOS since ICS. Don't take my word for it, try it in stores. The iPhone's screen is small and it feels like a fisher price gadget. Don't listen to fanboys on either side. I've owned both and I am currently using a iPhone (I miss my android devices)

Not trying to say one is better then the other, but read what she wants. She wants a phone that she basically isn't gonna use 95% of the stuff on it, wants accessories for the phone, and doesn't want a big phone. That's not the S3. As far as how they feel, that's up to each person, some people have said the S3 feels like cheap plastic, while other hate the iPhone for a lot of reasons.

FOR WHAT SHE WANTS, she should probably get the iPhone. I doubt she is gonna root it and do custom roms, or anything that makes the android system great. The iPhone is simple, easy, and works. That's what she is asking for.

The S3 is a good device and has some awesome features .. but you will only be able to take advantage of them if your friends also have S3's. If you are a conformist, the iPhone is the way to go. It's easier to use and a lot more stable then the Android OS.
