iPhone or Galaxy S3? no way!!,
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 Unlocked Cellphone, International Version, 16GB, Blue (Electronics)
I got the S3 yesterday, since I owned a iPhone 4S here the comparison:
DESIGN: Galaxy S3 design is stunning, the feeling on hands is incredible. The ergonomics makes all the difference. The iPhone 4S is very squarish and definitely more solid but heavier too (way heavier);
SCREEN: Galaxy S3 screen is wonderful with vivid colours and sharp imaages, 4,8 inches vs 3.5 of the iPhone, after you make the transition you wont never come back, impossible.
OPERATING SYSTEM: S3 usability is a boom. iPhone is good but never at the level of the S3, way way slower.
BATTERY: S3 gets full day + 30% remaining battery, iPhone last till four or five PM;
GPS: Galaxy S3 gets locked in less than 10 seconds inside a building, iPhone searches and searches with no success;
CAMERA: they are very similar, S3 is faster and iPhone is may be a bit better in term of quality. No dramatic difference.
S-VOICE vs SIRI: they are both very basic and more fun than usefull.
USB-BLUETOOTH: iPhone only works with iTunes, no Bluetooth, no radio. Galaxy S3 can be usb-connected to computers and flashmemory, it has easy bluetooth connection and yes ... it has an amazing radio :)
APPS: to be sincere, all relevants apps in iPhones are present in Android. They have better design but they are at payment while in Android are always free. No mayor differences.
Galaxy S3 is an extraordinary good purchase. Recommended for all ex-iPhone users. You wont regret, there is a world outside iTunes :)

I have a totally different experience, but I must say it is much lighter than the iphone.
Still not use to the complexity of android, like the flawless experience of the iPhone better.
Really good phone but experience is clearly not on par with the iphone 4S....and the 5 is coming soon...

Goes to show you that the iPhone is marketed to the average Joe who knows nothing about technology.

if your a iphone user, your comments are not credible... go forma line outside a store for the Iphone 5 since now!....
iOS is only good for games, period, all the rest, Androids beats the crap out of it.

it is the European version, but the adapter is very easy to find. It costs less than a US$

It is up to you to beleive or not. Once you use the Galaxy S3 it would be great if you share your perspective and see if it matches with mine. regards
