The Apple iPhone 5 is set to be released at some point over the next few weeks and we can expect this to be the most impressive smartphone from Apple to date. One of the potential main competitors the iPhone 5 is the impressive and popular Samsung Galaxy S3. In this article, I will look at some of its key features and how the iPhone 5 is likely to compare with these.
The touchscreen is one of the most impressive and highly regarded features of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Thanks to its 4.8 inch measurements, 720x 1280 pixel resolution and super AMOLED HD capacitive touchscreen technology, it offers all the benefits of a large screen along with excellent display quality. The iPhone 5 is likely to be the first iPhone model with a screen larger than 3.5 inches, although we can also expect this to have the same retina display quality as the iPhone 4S. It has been confirmed that a 4 inch retina display has already begun production, so this looks like the screen that iPhone fans have been waiting for.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has one of the most impressive processors on the market. At 1.4GHz, its quad-core processor provides the handset with outstanding performance across all aspects of its spec list. The iPhone 4S has a 1GHz dual-core processor, which although provides the handset with excellent performance, even by today’s standards, it is likely to be increased with the iPhone 5. In order to compete with the Galaxy S3, a quad-core processor looks like a possibility, however some sources are suggesting a more powerful dual-core processor of around 1.5 GHz. Whatever type of processor is incorporating the iPhone 5, it looks sure that the iPhone 5 will have outstanding performance which many people now expect from any iPhone model.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is renowned for its credentials as a camera phone. Thanks to its 8 megapixel camera with all the usual image enhancing features and high definition video capture, it ticks all the boxes. The camera of the iPhone 4S alike is also very impressive, and despite the handset having been available for nearly a year, is still regarded as for the best camera phones on the market. Therefore, it is entirely possible that the iPhone 5 will utilise the same 8 megapixel camera as the iPhone 4S, although some sources have suggested that a 12 megapixel camera will be used. Whatever the specifications of the camera of the iPhone 5 turns out to be, we can expect it to be one of the crowning features of the device.
The Apple iPhone 5 is rumoured to be unveiled on 12th of September, so there is now not long to wait. While it is almost guaranteed that this will be one of the most impressive smartphones to date, it will certainly have its work cut out if it is to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
