This was a great innovative thinking because when apple have introduced this idea, they said they wanted a phone that would fit right in the customers hand so they can use it with one had when needed and was more portable for the customers.
But on the other hand, the Samsung galaxy s3 4.8 inch wide screen have caused confusions from the “phone geeks” and they have said they didn’t understand why Samsung would make a phone this big.
On the other hand, Samsung has used the old generic plastic-like back plate for the new Samsung Galaxy s3 but, the advantages were that it was much more “fingerprint-proof” and “scratch-proof”, but a disadvantage they had to face was that it was less “sleek” looking than the i Phone 5 with the aluminum back plate.
In technology-wise, the Samsung and Apple didn’t have much differences because the mega pixels of the cameras on both phones were off charts and had about 10 mega pixels difference from each other which is not a big difference.
When Apple customers called this exclusive feature “Siri” the Samsung customers called it “S-voice”.
Today the competition between communication companies is beneficial for markets and customers.The other reason is, I am an engineer, and I’m interested in some professional applications I didn’t find in the Galaxy S3, but I found them in the i Phone 5 such as, MATLAB and Solid work.For these reasons I prefer using the i Phone 5 to the Galaxy S3.They also have big similarities in the processing speed but Samsung got a little faster time than Apple for the processing speeds.But one big software similarities between the two phones are the voice recognition system that was added in Samsung and that was introduced to the Apple customers when the i Phone 4s was made.Apple and Samsung can compare to two children fighting, after one says, “You took my idea,” the other replies with, “No, you took my idea.” And this endless cycle of bickering continues on and is forced to go to court where one of the companies takes a substantial amount from the other.Though both companies have their differences, they also have many things that are similar.Since Apple and Samsung are two of the strongest communications companies, I think the competition between them will continue for a long time.In a story of two technology giants fighting a war against each other, Apple and Samsung have gone through many court battles and there are still many more to come.Another difference between the two phone is also in the outer part and it is the back screen plate and it is because, Apple also took another huge step in the back plate this year too and it was by replacing the glass back plate as they used in the i Phone 4/4s, with a anodized aluminum back plate which was more “fingerprint-proof” than the glass plate.But there was also a huge down side because of this, and it was that they were really sensitive to scratches therefore, Apple sure did avoid having fingerprints all around the phone, but they were now facing a bigger problem of the scratching problems.
