Compare Apple iPhone 5 with Samsung Galaxy III

The Apple iPhone 5 is enabled for 4G – this automatically gives it a one-upmanship over its rival the Samsung Galaxy III. With a extra fast battery charger & a camera which can capture panoramic pictures, it is definitely carving a niche in the market & toppling the competition from their perch. Compared to most smartphones, in fact, the iPhone 5 is not just thinner & lighter, it also has a processor which is faster & a better battery life. Colour options are black & slate combination or white and silver comination. Naturally, there are thousands of apps available too from the App store!

The Apple iPhone 5 did bedazzle consumers and serpentine queues appeared long before showrooms opened, but subsequently niggling doubts have arisen as to its perfection. Some complained about its maps, others about WiFi, and yet others about the date & time not showing what it actually should be. Despite all this, a majority do feel it is the best iPhone to date. 

The iPhone 5 holds up extremely well to the competition, primarily to the Samsung Galaxy III.
