Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S: Does Apple Stand A Chance?

At one time, the most wanted smartphone was Apple’s iPhone and it stood uncontested. That was until the Samsung Galaxy line was introduced and continued to gain popularity with each new generation. Those who made the bold move of swapping their iPhone for the Samsung Galaxy S2 swore it was a better phone and with the release of the latest version, the the Samsung Galaxy S3, more defectors are expected.

Now the folks over at MobileNApps have compiled all the reasons they believe the Samsung Galaxy S3 will steal away more Apple iPhone users, that is until Apple reveals the iPhone 5. Here are a couple of highlights:

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S (MNA comparison)

Stunning & large 4.8-inch screen: Thanks to Super AMOLED HD technology it offers beautiful and vibrant colours and makes the 3.5-inch Retina display of the iPhone 4S appear small.

Processor: The 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor tucked away in the Samsung Galaxy S3 beats that of the 1GHz processor found in the iPhone. Users who want more power in their smartphones will find the iPhone 4S no longer able to keep up with the next-generation of quad-core smartphones on the market.

The Stay Smart software in the Galaxy S3 sets the handset miles apart from that of the iPhone 4S. The software makes the most of the front 1.9-megapixel camera and knows when you are using the phone and keeps the screen on. If you take your eyes off the screen it will go into sleep mode, but look back to the phone and magically, it wakes back up. While seeming gimmicky at first, Samsung has gone the extra mile with such features and when put together does provide a a whole new mobile experience (S-Voice, BuddyShare, S-Beam, etc).

Hit the source link for all of MNA’s reasons as to why they think the Samsung Galaxy S3 beats the iPhone 4S hands down. And do keep in mind that this comparison is against an Apple smartphone that is well on its way out. So until the iPhone 5 is announced, the 4S is expected to hold the Apple fort.
