Video: Need 50 Reasons Why Your Galaxy S3 is Better Than the New iPhone?

Whether we want to or not, many of us find ourselves having to justify our decision to buy an Android device over Apple’s new iPhone 5. Now, we aren’t into device bashing (we promise) and we think there’s room in this world for everybody’s opinions, but we thought it would be good for all of our Galaxy S3 owners to be equipped for their next battle. 

The Galaxy S3 features many unique things that the iPhone does not – NFC technology, expandable memory, removable battery, and you can even throw in that we have a dedicated Google Maps app. Burn. Below is a video listing out a total of 50 things that the SGS3 has that the iPhone 5 does not.

Go study and the next time an Android hater comes knocking, you’ll be ready.

    Can someone tell me 50 reasons why not to get the iphone and 50 reasons why not to gt the gs3? lol… im actually being serious.

  • andy

    I have used both the phones and here is what I have
    seen….

    1.
    Screen has higher pixel density and
    is brighter

    True it is crisper on iPhone and outdoors in bright
    light it is better but indoors S3 display looks better

    2.
    Thinner

    True

    3.
    Lighter

    False! Both are different sizes so comparing by
    overall weight is NOT correct. Lets measure weight per inch to give you better
    idea.

    iPhone: 112gm/4 inches = 28gm /inch Samsung S3:
    133gm/4.8 inches = 27.7 gm/inch

    So in a true sense S3 is lighter as you are getting
    bigger screen size in less weight.

    4.
    Easier one handed operation

    Hahaha!! This is funny….. I have hardly seen
    people using only one hand… most use two hands.. By the way who the hell said
    that phone is to be used by only one hand when u have two: P. Tie

    5.
    Better build quality

    Yes.. it should better be because apple costs more
    than S3 (premium price)

    But it comes down to personal preference. Tie

    6.
    Faster updates

    True. But I did got Jelly Bean update in October
    which is fine!

    7.
    Supported longer

    False! Even older versions of android are supported
    till date. Tie

    8.
    More apps

    Yes! None the less not the number of apps but how
    many useful apps are available matters and both have same. Tie

    9.
    Better version of apps

    True and False!! Tie

    Both have better versions and both have exclusive
    apps

    10.
    More durable

    This is a tie! Different drop tests shall reveal
    different results

    Score:

    Apple – 3 Samsung – 1 Tie – 6

    11.

    Reversible charging port

    False! Lighting charging port is definitely not
    faster! Personally I prefer charging with any cable I have over dual side.
    Anyways how many times can you fiddle on a two sided cable?

    12.
    Vibrate switch

    False! This is just pure lack of research

    Just keep pressing volume button down and it shall
    go into vibrate mode or keep pressing power button and it shall multiple
    options to work with, one of them is vibrate mode!

    13.
    Louder speaker

    Really!! 2 to 5 dB may be

    14.
    Faster boot up, app speed, and
    browser

    True and False

    Faster Boot up – If S3 has SD Card inserted then
    iPhone is faster and

    Without
    SD card S3 is faster

    The difference is of hardly few
    seconds!

    App speed – iPhone launches app faster but in terms
    of operation non-Add apps work faster in S3.

    Browser – Iphone is not faster. It feels faster
    because when it loads a web page it shows initial content quickly but it still
    keeps on working where as S3 finishes with content display.

    15.
    Siri

    Fasle!

    Ok!…. Have you heard about GOOGLE NOW!

    Its way better than Siri! And its predictive cards
    are just awesome! It’s just been a few weeks use but it knows what I need…

    16.
    Raise to speak

    I shall raise to speak with Siri and again bring my
    phone down to see the results!! Sounds smart right? :P

    Here Apple
    copied S3’s raise to call feature!

    17.
    Reader feature in browser

    True! I haven’t found any app alternative in S3.

    False! Changing size of the text is simple and is
    few touches away!

    18.
    Video compression for email

    Personally, I have never required to email videos
    and when you have S beam (NFC- Not just Samsung but all NFC capable devices can
    share) where size doesn’t matter so don’t need email… for long distance tons
    of video sharing options…

    The more important this people attach on email are
    documents and other format files which apple still doesn’t understand! Shame
    here

    19.
    iTunes has larger media collection

    True

    20. Find my iPhone

    Samsung Dive! And you can track not just by
    proprietary I devices in iPhone but any browser which has access to internet!

    (In fact lost phone security feature was first
    available on Samsung phones around 4 years before iPhone existed!)

    Apple – 2 Samsung – 4 Tie – 4

    21.
    More intuitive UI

    Ok here it becomes interesting because
    intuitiveness varies from person to person. Personally I don’t feel iPhone is
    the most intuitive.

    Phone buff forgot to compare ecosystems not just
    out of the box device! You get lot of custom launchers on android to suite your
    personal choice of intuitiveness. Hence I shall say it’s False

    22. Better 3D graphics

    If eyes can’t make a difference out of two then
    really does it matter!!

    23. Game center

    True

    24. Apple store customer service

    I haven’t faced problem in both devices so
    difficult to say but 400 centres for iPhone users is too large a number to
    solve issues: P

    25.
    No bloatware

    True. There are non in iPhone

    False… Some bloatware are good e.g. S3 Smart care
    which can be used to diagnose problem issues before you seek assistance of
    customer service

    26. Built in emoji keyboard

    False it may not be built in android but available
    from play store for free and it shall work with not just few apps but any app
    you have on your phone. Honestly! iOS can’t compete with Android’s
    customisation capabilities.

    27.
    Take pictures with volume button

    Sometimes it feels good use volume button to click
    pictures but saying “Cheese” and S3 clicking photos for you is just Awesome!

    28. Tap to top in any app

    True. In S3 double tap option is there in few apps

    29. Multiple notification styles

    No Doubt Notification are deep rooted within
    android. iOS copied and trying new things but Android is simply too good,
    extremely useful and very intuitive.

    30. Spotlight search

    False! Again Google Now has this.

    Apple – 1 Samsung – 5 Tie – 4

    31.
    Read aloud highlighted text

    False! Not built in built in available in play
    store for ages

    32. Guided access

    True…..did anyone use this feature?

    33. Privacy options

    False! In application manager you can see the
    access rights for every app.

    34. Do not disturb

    False! Blocking mode in S3

    With play store app such as Tasker you can do
    almost anything you can think of..

    35.
    Set restrictions

    False! Again custom launchers have this
    functionality.

    36. Keyboard shortcuts

    False! Again 3rd party apps have this
    functionality

    37.
    Lock screen options (camera, music,
    Siri)

    False Hahaha!! Again is copied from Android. You
    can customise 4 apps that you want access from lock screen

    38. Reminders by location

    False!
    With play store app such as Tasker you can do almost anything you can think
    of..

    39. Easy access to photo gallery from camera

    False this is silliest reason, Iphone has swipe
    access and S3 has touch access.

    40. Custom contact vibrations (Better
    resale value)

    Tie. Both have custom contact vibration feature.

    Apple – 1 Samsung – 2 Tie – 7

    41.
    iMessage

    False! This is only for iPhone user and S3 also has
    similar messenger chatOn. I dislike both. There are better cross platform
    messengers such as whatsApp, Viber, Skype etc.

    42. VIP mailbox

    Flase! Not just VIP but you can create any folder
    like VIP 1 to VIP 100 :P in S3

    43. Pop up notifications on lock screen

    False! Both have it. In fact S3 goes a step further
    and that is if you swipe on the notification and unlock your phone it shall
    directly go to that app.

    44. Airplay mirroring

    Yes others don’t have it, but DLNA cross platform
    is much better option which S3 has ans many others but not iPhone.

    45.
    iTunes remote

    Since S3 doesn’t have iTunes they thought it’s
    better not to give a remote!!

    You can voice control music player so no need for
    any remote

    46. iPod features (equalizer, shake to shuffle, etc)

    Why are we talking about iPod feature here ;) still
    these features are available in s3 music player

    47.
    Passbook

    False! google wallet and 3rd party apps
    like pass wallet available

    48. More accessories available

    True and False

    You can have more accessories for iPhone to make it
    beautiful from outside

    You can have more accessories for S3 to make it
    beautiful internally (No jail breaking or rooting)

    49. Photo stream

    Share shot and buddy photo share is way better than
    photo stream.

    50. Easy sync and backup with iCloud and iTunes

    Both have this option. With
    Iphone you are stuck with iTunes but with S3 multiple options are there which
    is always good.

    Apple – 2 Samsung – 5 Tie – 5

    Total Score

    Apple – 9 Samsung – 17 Tie – 24

    So Finally!!

    -
    There are 9
    aspects of iPhone which are not available on S3 or better than S3

    -
    There are 17
    aspects of S3 which are not available on iPhone or better than

    -
    There are 24
    aspects of iPhone which are available on both S3 & iPhone in one of the
    other way.
