Galaxy S3 better than iPhone 5 on paper

We knew it wouldn’t take long for Samsung to respond to Apple’s iPhone 5 event and without wasting any time, Samsung has sent out a specs comparison flyer essentially reminding consumers that the Galaxy S3 is still the superior handset.

The Galaxy S3 is already available to buy right now of course, with the iPhone 5 expected to launch in the US and other selected countries on September 21st. Samsung are confident that their device already matches the new iPhone 5 in specs, but a new banner advert released by the company suggests that they actually have the better device on paper.

The Korean manufacturer has sent out the ad, titled ‘It doesn’t take a genius’, and compiled the list of main features offered by the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5. As you can imagine, the ad favors the Galaxy S3 in a big way, although there’s no denying that some of the features on the Galaxy S3 do outweigh those offered on the iPhone 5.

For example, Samsung touts a bigger screen, bigger amount of RAM, bigger resolution, more standby and talk time as just some of the advantages that the Galaxy S3 has over the iPhone 5. There’s even a little dig thrown in there when Samsung references Apple’s new Lightning connector as ‘a totally different plug’.

While Apple’s iPhone 5 feature list stops at 13, as imagined by Samsung, the Galaxy S3 continues to list specs with a total of 27 – the last advantage being a removable battery on the Galaxy S3. There’s also another reminder that the new iPhone still doesn’t have NFC capabilities.

It will be interesting to see if Apple decides to respond to the ad once it goes live – we expect they will and it will be surprising given the recent animosity between the two giants if they don’t launch some sort of response. Check out the flyer for yourself and let us know what you think of it.

Do you agree with Samsung – is the Galaxy S3 the better device on paper? Get the latest on the Jelly Bean update here.

Apple fans don’t realize Samsung makes money off every iPhone Without Samsung’s technology there would be no iPhone. Apple is Samsung’s biggest customer .
The processor in every Iphone and IPad Is made bye Samsung lol

haha this is such a stupid advert. If iphone listed things like “palm touch mute pause” their list would be epic. The iphone lists their new tech upgrades not every single thing the phone does! If you want an imitation iphone then buy the samsung. While you’re at it buy a crappy mp3 player instead of an ipod and a cheap tablet instead of an iPad… (then pretend you’re not missing out)

anyone else notice how Smsung has included loads of software features that all previous android phones have ,whereas they only put the specs of the iphone…
notice all the semi retarded comments saying that iphones users are the “sheep” and look at that list, no one can deny the galaxy is better, how about those people open there eyes and actually notice that Samsung has relied on their stupidity to not notice what the ad was doing…

I’ve just come from using an iPhone 4 (not a 4S) into a Galaxy SIII and unless I’m not using it properly, the SIII is not up to it as a business phone. The battery is poor and the screen way too sensitive. It’s not user friendly at all to set up and does not organise text messages or emails well at all.
Overall, for all the hype, I’m not impressed.

i hate when people are clueless on specks and think that there phone is better just because it has a half bitten apple on it but 1 gig of ram is way different then 2 gigs i also get irritated when people call android phones droid phones there are droid branded phones with motorola but not every phone is a droid

Samsung No1! Wake up buddy. Pursuing consumers by Advertisement they are no 1. Quality can’t even compare to Nokia Lumia, more on iPhone.

I agree with Wise cellphone user, 2 months ago I bought a Galaxy S3. Hoping it’s works better than by previous iPhone 4S. Well, every after lunch I have to look for power source to recharge, photo flipping always lagging and often hang and need to remove battery to restart. The worst, my screen is crack now (dropped from my pocket). Regret switching from iPhone.

IPhone 5 what a joke there’s only 2 things worth mentioning it’s 4g finally and it grew not even full inch. That’s it wow so cool everything else is taken care of by updating to ios 6 such an amazing phone not really this should of been called iPhone 4XLT (XLT because it grew half a inch and has 4g) it gets no props for turn by turn direction when phones have been doing that for 5 plus years can’t remember when my phone didn’t have turn by turn its been a long time. So duh the Gs3 (galaxy s3)… Read more »

Its only sheep that would be fooled by Apple,the galaxy s3 is the better phone,you can’t even replace the battery your self on the iPhone ,smaller screen,no NFC, no comparison.I have a Nexus 7 and have found Hallucinogen Bean and Google Now amazing,better than siri,when the Gs3 gets JB WOW.

I totally agree with the flyer. S3 rules. Even after so much patent restrictions by the Money sucking vampire (Apple), samsung still manages to provide a lot of new things to its users and that too at a much lower price. Iphones dont deserve the price tag they have. But the thing is that iphone is for idiots who dont understand technology, who have useless brains, and they think “if its costlier then it should be better”. Idiots will remain idiots.

Practically NFC and down are all gimmicky features that are useless for most phone owners. NFC technology is far from present, and Samsung rushed to implement it with its device. Good luck using it at stores. S-Beam can only be used when the phones are right next to each other. S Voice is a Siri ripoff, and both are useless. Direct Call is not a feature but a gesture that saves you a second. Tilt to zoom is inferior to pinch to zoom and Samsung knows it. Gestures such as Palm Swipe Capture, Palm Touch Mute Pause, Turn Over to… Read more »

Honestly there’s no comparison who are we fooling. The Samsung Galaxy S 3 is the best smartphone on the market today. From a software standpoint the iPhone 5 can’t compare on his best day. Bottom line here samsung innovates and pushes the market to no bounds or Apple just retreads all products for basically people who have no knowledge of Technology un educated Simpleton’s.
