Will The iPhone 5 Be A Worthy Competitor To The Galaxy S III?

We now have a pretty good idea of what the iPhone 5 will look like thanks to a variety of leaks and rumors. The biggest leak came from iLab when they made a fully assembled iPhone 5 from the various parts that had been leaked. It’s likely that the phone seen there is what the iPhone 5 will look like so why not compare it to its biggest rival – the Samsung Galaxy S III.

At first glance, it seems rather silly to compare a phone that we know everything about to a phone that’s not even out yet. I would counter that argument by saying that we know everything about the iPhone 5 because Apple’s suppliers and manufacturers are terrible at keeping secrets.

With the use of 3D modeling, YouTube user animatedvisual has created a side-by-side comparison of the purported iPhone 5 design and the design of the Samsung Galaxy S III. While nothing is entirely confirmed, it’s safe to assume that the iPhone 5 will look something like this. See how it stacks up to Samsung’s pride and joy:

After admiring both phones, it’s safe to say that both are admirable for different reasons. The purported design of the iPhone 5 is sleek and thin. It continues Apple’s tradition of making aesthetically pleasing hardware. On the other hand, Samsung’s Galaxy S III just screams power. It has a design that inspires confidence and oozes coolness.

Either way, you’re going to end up with a great phone. We’ll find out how great of a phone the iPhone 5 is going to be come September 12. Until then, just remember the wise words of a random YouTube commenter – “Just pick what phone you want and shut the f*ck up!”

As a bonus, here’s a comparison between the purported iPhone 5 design and the iPhone 4S:

    Galaxy SIII feels cheaper than IPhone 4s although I have to say Galaxy SIII is a bit better than IPhone based on what you can do with it. I’m considering the IPhone 5 though as I do miss a lot of things the IPhone is good for (simplicity). Galaxy SIII does freeze often so this is why I am considering going back to Apple.

    I will say that the aesthetics of the iPhone5 is appealing but I am going to hang on to my Android (SGS3) because not only is it more open but the main part is that i’m not trapped to the use of iTunes.
    I will no doubt get the iPhone5 but I will not get rid of my Android

    Also all you iSheep please stop posting retarded comments… Like seriously it’s you people that make Apple look bad.

      Let me guess…you never had an iphone. You are not locked to iTunes…you have plenty of ways of putting music on your phone without even jailbreaking it.

    iPhone is simpler to use, plus. The iPhone battery will last longer, plus. The iPhone doesn’t freeze up as all the time, plus. I don’t really see any other option?
