    Um... rationalize how you'd like, fanboys, the S3 is still better.

    I just wish that people would educate themselves before making these images.

    The S3 has a passwallet app that supports the exact same passes (same file format) as passbook. The benefit of course will be if passwallet can integrate with NFC :p

    It's subjective. S3 sucks for my use, but may be better for yours.

    I KNOW, WE'LL ALL USE WHAT SUITS US BETTER INDIVIDUALLY.

    The thing with the iPhone is that it may not be the best or feature rich phone out there but you know you're still going to buy it. It's like frequent flier miles or the mafia, once you're in, you can never get out. And that's why aapl is worth $700/share.

    There is no one size fits all.
    To me and millions of others the iPhone is way better and don't like the S3.
    Btw you are on an iPhone not android forum:)

    It's the politics of the smartphone market. One party is just only releasing partial information and taking words out of context to help support their own agenda. Would you believe that people use this tactic against other human beings as well!

    For as many "Nobama" and "Rommunism" bumper stickers out there we should see some "Samesung" and "Crapple" stickers too. ;)

    Better at what? If you're talking about speed then WRONG. If you're talking about ecosystem then WRONG. If you're talking about apps then WRONG.

    See this is what I hate.... Fandroids blatantly say the S3 is better, just based on specs. But the reality is that each phone is better at different things! And it's all just an opinion anyway.

    So no, the S3 isn't better.

    It's the same thing you hear about pc vs mac...."look at what specs I can get with pc" yada yada......Specs do not necessarily translate into better performance and a better user experience...These folks do not get it nor do they understand the concept until one day they finally grasp the reality of it.

    It's a retarded mentality. They treat these phones like sports teams. Get a life geeks.

    ----------

    Yep, also better user experience will be based on preference and will always be subjective. It amazes me how some idiots care what someone else thinks of their device.

    If the newly released benchmarks are true then the iPhone is faster than the SIII... All those specs and all that hardware only to be slower than a lower speccced iPhone.

    I prefer my S3. I find it just as fast as my ipad 2 with the jelly bean update, I like having the large screen for reading, which is complimented by the fact that the screen stays on without me having to tap it constantly.

    The main reason I prefer Android is the customisation it allows.

    There you go... No specs!

    Buy what phone you like, it doesn't matter. But Samsung's approach, if they're trying to win potential Apple iPhone buyers to buy Samsung products is horrible. Shady print ad's and TV commercials, flash mob's in front of Apple stores etc ... no class at all.

    With the hundreds of millions of iPhone user's out there you'd think Samsung would be smart enough to try somewhat politely entice iPhone users to buy the their phones with clever marketing rather than insults.

    Samsung exec's not so bright as they repeatedly prove to the public.

    Um pretty sure the iPhone will be faster. Better display. Better OS. Better apps. Custom processor optimized for this specific phone.

    Faster - yep
    Better display - subjective (I like AMOLED)
    Better OS - subjective
    Better apps - subjective
    Custom processor optimized for this specific phone - you can't use that twice, that's covered by 'faster'

    Faster Processor
    Higher DPI Display
    Thinner
    Lighter
    Better Camera
    Larger App Store
    Superior Build Quality: In terms of precision during the manufacturing process.

    Those are pretty hard facts.
