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.

The iPhone 4S come with your choice of 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB of flash memory. The Galaxy S III has 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, with a 64 GB model arriving later this year, says Samsung, although it's unclear which countries will get the 64-GB version first. The S3 is also expandable up to 64 GB with a microSD card. Unfortunately, iPhones don't have microSD slots and can't add onboard storage. It's highly unlikely that Apple will add a microSD slot to the next-gen iPhone, a shortcoming that obviously hasn't impacted the phone's popularity.

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 GrumorsG. 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.
