Apple iPhone 5 Vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: What We Know

How will Apple's new iPhone stack up to Samsung's premier smartphone? Here's a look at some key considerations.

We'll bypass the whole iOS vs. Android brouhaha here, except to say that when it comes to elegant design and usability, it's hard to top Apple's mobile OS. Android is catching up, however, and its newest offering (version 4.1, or Jelly Bean) offers performance and UI improvements that bring it closer to iOS's refinement. The new iPhone's expected fall debut will coincide with the arrival of iOS 6, Apple's latest version.

It's a given that iOS 6 will run on the new iPhone, but when will Android 4.1 come to the Galaxy S III? SamMobile, a fan site for Samsung mobile users, reports that S3 users may receive the upgrade in August or September.

Samsung needs to make a smaller unit. The Galaxy is too big to fit into a shirt pocket. With cars bigger is better, with cell phones smaller is better.

re: Apple iPhone 5 Vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: What We Know
I literally just ordered the Samsung Galaxy S III for myself, should be in the mail when I get home today! This comparison is based upon a phone that does not exist to the public yet, so what is discussed, like the author stated is G«ˇrumorsG«÷. The majority of this article in my opinion is favoring or at least discussing more about the iPhone than the Galaxy. I ordered the Galaxy simply because it is a more affordable phone and its features are very comparable with that of the iPhone that DOES exist. I made my selection based upon the reviews posted by InformationWeek. Thank you IW!!

The format of this article discriminates against ADD / Dyslectic and persons with short attention spans.

Why not the same look? Show the NYT on the 4.8" screen.

re: Apple iPhone 5 Vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: What We Know
I don't understand why IW does articles like this. First, there are no facts to print about the iPhone5. Second, all this article does is say how great the iPhone might be vs how the Samsung is. C'mon IW, you can do better than this.
