Top 41 Reasons for the
Samsung Galaxy S3
Compared to Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Appreciably more battery power
48.10% more battery power
Sizably faster CPU clock speed
4 x 1.4 GHz
2 x 0.8 GHz
3.50x faster CPU clock speed
Plenty more RAM memory
0.50 GB more RAM memory
A lot bigger screen size
37.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Substantially higher resolution
1.50x 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.
Notably more megapixel (photo, front camera)
6.33x 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.
Significantly faster downloads
45.83% faster downloads
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.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
A little lighter
7 g lighter
A little thinner
0.70 mm thinner
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.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Significantly smaller semiconductor size
13 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Higher GeekBench result
Higher GeekBench result. This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2014)
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Vastly lower SAR for head (USA)
0.63 W/kg lower SAR for head (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Measurably lower SAR for head (EU)
0.78 W/kg lower SAR for head (EU). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 2.0 W/kg in the EU.
Distinctly faster maximum shutter speed
5x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Vastly 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.
Distinctly less shutter lag
0.05 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.

Top 14 Reasons for the
Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S3
Somewhat higher pixel density
7.84% higher pixel density
Every pixel has three subpixels
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
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.
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. This is the widest aperture available at the 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.
Notably lower SAR for body (USA)
0.51 W/kg lower SAR for body (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at hip level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
12 mm narrower
Reasonably less body volume
36.86% less body volume
21.40 mm shorter
