Samsung Galaxy S III VS Apple iPhone 4S

On one hand we have the kingpin of smartphones the iPhone 4S, which, without doubt, is the best handset in the world right now, and on the other hand we have the handset, which has got all the potential to dethrone the ruler, yes, the soon to be released Samsung Galaxy S III. We are going to compare both the handsets one against another. Spicy proposition.
Let’s commence the comparison with hardware section, first the CPU and RAM. The SIII sports a Dual core 1.4 GHz Cortex A9 processor, which is seconded by a 1GB RAM. On the other hand we have the iPhone 4S that has 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor, well complimented by a 512MB RAM. This might seem to be a lop sided affair but one should not forget that Apple has a magical power to perform stupendously with a relatively lower spec sheet. This round goes to the Galaxy SIII, marginally though.

Next comes the segment of storage in which both the handsets come in three versions: 16/32/64 GB, but what gives the Samsung Galaxy SIII the upper hand is its capability to incorporate 64GB microSD card. Moving forward, in the display section the Galaxy SIII has a 4.8inch Super AMOLED touch screen, which has a pixel resolution of 720x1280, the screen has support for over 16m colors. The Apple iPhone 4S has a Apple trademark 3.5 inch screen, which has a resolution of 640x960p and has support for over 16m colors. Again the SIII seems to be having a slight edge over the Apple.
The Samsung handset has a 2100mAh Li-ion battery whereas its Apple counterpart has 1442mAh Li-Po battery that gives you a mammoth talk time of 14 hours over the 2G and 8 hours over 3G. I would call this round a tie. Now in the camera section  the SIII sports a 8MP rear and 1.9MP front cam, the other gadget in question has an 8MP rear and A VGA one on the front side. A tie once again.

In the OS segment the SIII offers the latest and the best Android ICS whereas the iPhone sports the iOS 5 and is upgradable to iOS 5.1. No matter how good the ICS is nothing can match the iOS 5(apart from 5.1).
As far as the features are concerned both the handsets have something novel in their kitty. As the verdict time has come I shall have to say, with a heavy heart, it is time for iphone 4S to abdicate the top spot for a better candidate.
