Galaxy s3 vs iPhone 5: weight

One quick question, looking again at the weight: Samsung is 4.7 oz, where iPhone 5 is 3.97 oz... Yet the iPhone 5 is not ultra-thin, maintaining its same form

Can somone tell me how Apple can do this ?

As the phone would seem heavier than the Samung.... even though its lighter than the 4s.

because the iPhone 5 is smaller than the S3...and the 4 and 4S were just plain heavy.

Aluminum is lighter then glass, and the in cell screen is probably lighter too so its lighter then the 4 and 4S.

The S3 is bigger so its heavier....
