Default Galaxy s3 vs Iphone 5 ?

At the moment,I am leaning towards Galaxy S3,because Iphone 5,along with Ios 6 kinda dissapointed me.

Also,is Galaxy S3 good enough when in comes to gaming,for the next 12 months?

Also,just how fragile is Galaxy S3,compared to Iphone 5?



Which phone do you think I should buy?

Think youre better off asking in an Android forum as we'll be quite biased i'm sure !

I dont care so much for ios6, its all about the games for me. I have over 500 games so if i switched it would cost me a lot !

But questions about if the Galaxy is good for gaming, again i would ask at an Android forum

This is a biased forum. Go ask somewhere else. We're true iOS gamers over here and surely most will suggest iPhone 5. Find an unbiased forum to ask this Personally I'd say, get iPhone 5. Imo Android OS is terrible after using it for a month or two. Technically my android phone is faster than my iPod yet it feels the other way around. I blame the OS

Well,you do have a point there,but I would still like to hear answers from people on this forum,and even if I asked the same question on an android related forum,answers would still be biased.

Still,both of these phones are awesome,and I would like to know why you prefer
one phone over another,as long as the answers are based on facts.

Heres my problems with the gs3,

-its made of plastic and plastic scuffs and chips(not saying that the iphone doesn't because it does)

-It will probably be outdated in the android world soon since the gs4 is arriving soon

--its benchmarks were slightly lower then the iphone 5 which makes the iphone better for gaming

Why I use a iphone for gaming:

-iOS usually gets some games before android and has some exclusives like infinity blade

-I'm in love with this 16:9 aspect ratio

-Im not sure if android has something similar but icloud saves are amazing. I can start a game on my iphone and pick up on my ipad when I get home.

I have the S III and it's a mighty fine device, but if you want a phone for gaming, then I suggest getting the iPhone 5 instead. The iPhone is leagues ahead of the Galaxy S III in terms of gaming performance - just take a look at this. You may have to scroll down a bit for the gaming bits.

I'm not going to state my opinion here as it does tend to annoy folks but I would suggest researching both phones reviews and watching some youtube videos of them both.

Also go into a store and handle them then make your choice.

Well heres my view...

I've got an ipod touch 5, ios 6 i dont mind, Siri is a waste of time though. But anyway as for the games i love it, so if you have 100's of apps i wouldnt 'move' to Android, if you've only got a few you could.

I prefer the app store knowing Apple should stuff out quickly rather than at times the chaotic Android side. Yes you have emulators on Android which i would love but i love iOS games and supporting the devs.

I use my ipod mostly for gaming, love i get all the latest apps normally on iOS first, my iphone/ipad i also enjoy. So you can see i cant 'convert' really as i've spent so much on iOS stuff anyway.

Dont see what you expected from iOS 6 , how come its disappointed you ?
