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 U.S. version of the Galaxy S III has a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, while the global model features Samsung's quad-core Exynos chip. The new iPhone is expected to have a quad-core CPU too, most likely Apple's long-awaited A6 processor. (The new iPad uses the A5X, a dual-core chip with quad-core graphics.) The new iPhone may have a performance advantage over the Galaxy S III, at least in the U.S., although it probably won't be too dramatic.

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.
