really..

Samsung made the micro processor for all the iphones. Futhermore they held improve the screens battery life. Sony chipped in and made the camera for the new iphone....now does apple really get all the credit..
The galaxy s3 has double the ram and much more defined resolution then the iphone. Furthermore, the galaxy screen size is what made the iphone step upto date, as far what consumers want...bigger.

And the iPhone 1 is what made Samsung step up to the plate. I'd also say a lot of companies be it in the auto industry or the electronic industry buy components from other companies, even from competitors. That's nothing new. What matters is who engineered the product.

Well...

Apple obviously does better with those parts made by the competitors.

A video

Here's a U-Tube video of Steve Jobs introducing the iPhone 1 Jan 2007 21 months before the first Android phone came out in October 2008.

This is support of my comment that the iPhone made Samsung step up to the plate.

It's also funny that Eric Schmidt who was CEO of Google from 2001 to 2009 was also on Apples board from 2006 t0 2009 during the time the iPhone was in development. Coincidence?

T-Mobile subscribers can't get an iPhone. But I must say, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one helluva phone.

My only complaint is that the phone comes with way too much bloatware that can't be removed.

which one?

The Galaxy comes with too much bloatware and several redundant apps that cannot be removed. I suppose if I rooted the phone I could, but I'm not about to do that.

I have used Iphone from day one but its time to switch to Galaxy sIII. The bad part is I will have to get new apps. OH WELL JUST MONEY

Good for you, better than wasting money on lightning cables and over-priced adapters and accessories.

Use Both - Like Both

I got an iPhone 4S from work several months ago and my wife got a Samsung Galaxy S3 in August. We use both units and like them both.

The iPhone has a big headstart with iTunes (pretty well cornered the market on music) but the S3 has a much bigger screen and seems to take better pictures. We have a few apps on each phone but don't really use them much. So it's a sawoff for us on the techie side.

However, each phone has a different provider and the reception for the S3 is much better. I used to have a Blackberry with the same provider as the 4S and didn't have connetivity problems in the same locations. The Apple techs claim it is the provider and the provider claims it's the antennae on the 4S.

Otherwise I think they're both useful... and that's all I'm interested in. Kind of like comparing Dell vs HP computers.

interesting

Now let me qualify myself, I have a razr maxx provided by my employer, so I could have had either the iPhone 5 or the Galaxy S3 if I had waited. But I opted for 4G LTE as soon as I was eligible.

The razr maxx is a great knock around phone, although I had it replaced already under warranty as the screen was flickering. It like most other phones nowadays, could not be scratched even when I took a key and tried (I tried it on the one going back).

Anyway, as you can guess, I know people who have both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy.

There are a certain number of people (like romney's 47%) who will never say anything bad about apple products, even if the brooklyn bridge doesn't exist or the hoover dam. I don't think the same is true about samsung.

With that being said, I have never heard a single thing bad about the S3, from people that I know. I do hear people complaining about the adapter on the iPhone 5.

It is hilarious--you can buy a genuine OEM Motorola charger for $4 to $6 from amazon.com. It will work on the Samsung, or any other micro usb for that matter. I've heard a replacement charger for the iPhone 5 is about $38. Now that's just funny. smile

But of course, we all know the next best thing didn't arrive until Apple. All I can say is it's a great stock to have bought in 2009. That's dumb luck, nothing better. I like owning the stock but not their products. Like saying why be a doctor in a hospital when you can own the hospital that the doctors work in.

imo the iphone 5 looks and feels great. the only issue i have is the phone not having a micro sd slot so you can expand your memory and itunes being your only way to upoad your music.

The galaxy s3 has the sd slot and you can even use your phone as an external hard drive for those times you might want to take important files off another pc

Other than that i do feel that apple does a great job marketing there product thus causing cult of people to believe every new product the have is a neccesity.

On that note im looking foward to seeing the iphone 5 price drop next month in preparation for the release of the iphone 6 due in march.(lol)

I went to the AT&T store to purchase the Samsung Galaxy SIII but when I compared the screen brightness & sharpness the Iphone 5 won hands down.

Good luck on your future purchases. Don't get swayed by reviewers, go to your providers store and compare 2 active phones. You will be surprise that there are features you like and don't like. that is why we have options!

Yep

When I was standing on line to get my new iPhone, I played with Android phones. Confirmed yet again I was making the right choice.

My experience was just the opposite. I went to the Verizon store planning on getting the new iPhone and after trying both I went with the Droid. I liked the larger screen on the Android and the widgets were very customizable and easily sized to get the screens the way I like them.

Galaxy Note II

I was at a Christmas party last night. My neighbor was showing off his iPhone5. As it was Christmas and all, I kept my GNII in my pocket. Then my wife asked me to show him a photo she knew I had on my phone. After the next 10-15 minutes of showing the amazing features of the Note II, and my neighbor and his friend were quite impressed. 5.5" screen with true 1080P display, lots of cool S-pen features including gallery previews and mouseover functionality in the browser, a micro SD slot with 64GB capacity, and the ability to plug in a flash drive into the phone to copy files to and from it and the thing is still impressing me a few weeks in. I'm just starting to play with the NFC file transfers (where you can touch phones) and other NFC features using programmable "tech tiles".

One of the nicest features of the phone is the 3100mAh battery. The other day, it registered 22 hours of time on the battery before plugging it into the charger with about 10-15% left to go on the battery. That is with no regard for conservation, leaving the GPS and Wifi turned on all day. And yes, I can drop in a spare battery and go another day or so...

If you're in the market for a new phone, be sure to check the Galaxy S3 and it's big brother, the Note II. It's not for everybody, but it is the right phone for me.

Using it as a GPS is a treat. The screen is larger than my nuvi.

Censorship

My issue with the iPhone -- well, actually with Apple in general -- is that they censor the app store. Pulizter Prize winning editorial cartoonist had his app pulled because it might be controversial. (Until they discovered he had a Pulitzer, and the said he could apply again.)

Yes, android has issues. But I'd rather live in a free market than one with a nanny deciding what I can do with my phone.

(That's also the reason I didn't go with AOL back in the day.)

As for the Galaxy S III? I've got the Galaxy S I, and am about to upgrade it. But not to the III, but to the new Nexus 4. I'm going to see how I like a pure Android environment.

Samsung really step up the game

Samsung really step up the game with Galaxy S3 & N2.

I've been using iPhone for the last 4 gen but now time switching to Galaxy. I got the S3 first then when the Note 2 came out, I knew that the right phone for me. So many amazing features that iPhone lacking.

The iPhone give you a bit more luxury on the outside but the Note 2 have all the horsepower hidden inside.

Pretty much major apps for the iPhone you can also find it on the android.

Sounds familiar

People have been comparing Apple to something else ever since home computers were developed. There are what the kids call "fanboys" on both sides. Both sides have advantages. Personally I've had a Droid X for 3 years and it still works well. I now have an iPhone 5 and like it also. For me, the 5 is better because I can sync all my computers and the iPad. This saves trouble, but I still rely on Google to sync my contacts because that's where they are. To each his own. Both have advantages.

I got both and I like them both. There is some censorship from the apple store but it's somewhat worth it instead of the hassle of constantly worrying of viruses each time you download an apps.

I agree. Did anyone every

I agree. Did anyone every ready the terms that you "Accept" when you download some of the androids apps?
You basically give up your right to privacy and expose your phone for full access from gps location tracking to call history to anything else you might not want to share.
