1 g lighter
Direct updates by OS vendor
It can be updated directly by the OS vendor, so no need to wait until the manufacturer or network provider releases an update.
Explicitly faster downloads
4.76x faster downloads
Appreciably more internal storage
16 GB more internal storage
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Significantly more microphone(s)
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Noticeably faster uploads
8.68x faster uploads
11.40 mm narrower
Has AF tracking
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
12.20 mm shorter
AirPlay allows wireless connection of Apple devices with external screens or speakers. You may stream computer screen, video and music from iOS devices, play games like on consoles or present your slideshows easily on your TV.
Substantially less shutter lag
0.11 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
Considerably less startup delay
0.15 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Front camera has BSI sensor
A backside illuminated camera sensor is better at capturing images in low light. It is useful to have it on your front camera if you have video chats etc. in places without much light.
Much less body volume
25.48% less body volume
Smooth to hold
Shape and material of the back of the phone fits well in your hand
Apple iPhone 5C is better than Samsung Galaxy S3 because...
Top 26 Reasons for the
Samsung Galaxy S3
Compared to Apple iPhone 5C
Lots more battery power
39.07% more battery power
Distinctly faster CPU clock speed
4 x 1.4 GHz
2 x 1.3 GHz
2.15x faster CPU clock speed
Bigger screen size
20% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Significantly higher resolution
26.76% higher resolution
Has an external memory slot
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
Explicitly more megapixel (photo, front camera)
1.58x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Has branded damage resistant glass
Damage resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontail Glass) is thin and lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Has a removable battery
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
A bit thinner
0.37 mm thinner
Can be charged via standard USB cable
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
Has USB mass storage support
It can transfer files, music, photos via USB, no need to install additional software.
Is DLNA certified
All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
Clearly faster maximum shutter speed
5x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Notably longer exposure time
0.93 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
Good pic capture at night
It has better camera at night
Zero Shutter Lag
This means photos are much more sharper and can be taken in less than 0.5 seconds
