Review iPhone 5C vs Samsung Galaxy S3
A couple of days ago, the Apple company stressed, the release of both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C which were aimed at taking on the steep competition from the Android shades like Samsung Galaxy S3 rocking the market. It has taken quite some time for the two companies still in the race for the top rank but one thing strikes a balance; they both have their loyal customers. In case you are still in dilemma to which phone to go for, know what you want and with the following guidelines, making a choice will be easier than picking a favorite fruit.
The exterior outlook
You will conquer that by the first sight, both of the phones look far different; the iPhone 5C looks much like its previous shades despite packing a few bright splashy colors. On the other hand, Galaxy S3 is a big Smartphone with looks similar to S2 but subtly different due to its curved edges accompanied by a thinner body. Apart from both being thin and weight 132g be keen and you will notice that Galaxy S3 is thinner marked at 8.6 mm while the iPhone is at 8.97 mm. More still, both come with a polycarbonate chassis which aside, having a sturdy feeling, it has looks too.
They have admirable display potentials differentiated by some slight features; Galaxy S3 has a 4.7 inch, 1280*pixel, a super Amoled display while the Apple is still thinking of considering larger screen displays yet the present iPhone 5C has a 4 inch display with 1136*640 pixels resolutions. Latest research has it that Apple has outfitted its latest phone with a Retina display; hence you will enjoy one of the sharpest and clearest screens ever.
The current iPhone 5C version has hit the market with Apple’s latest preinstalled iOS7 while the Galaxy S3 is by its throat with Android 4.1.2 that has moved to 4.3 Jelly Bean, a technological tussle you don’t want to be left behind. The A6X processor is the boost behind iPhone 5C which inconsideration of currents standards is fit for the road. On the other hand, the quad core A9 Cortex processor is the super engine behind the Galaxy S3 and lock in at 1.4 GHz. What brings them together is the fact that both come with 1 GB of RAM.
The Apple iPhone 5S has the capacity to hold power up to around 10 hours (talk time) despite the company not mentioning its lifespan. On the other hand, Samsung has featured a 2100 mAh battery to Galaxy S3 hence giving it a boost to a talk time estimated at around 11 hours and 45 minutes. This means then that you will only need to charge it once per day, which pretty impressive for a Smartphone especially with such a screen size.
They have a nice build in 8 MP camera that comes with an LED flash, but what differentiates them is; the iPhone 5C has a similar insight camera alike with the predecessors, not big but worked pretty spectacularly in all shades. The iOS7 has solved it all with tons of new features; digital zoom while recording a video and taking photos. There’s no match for the Galaxy S3 since it has not shot up its specs since the release of S2 but with a better camera sensor, it calls for much attention.
