iPhone 5 VS Galaxy S3 In a Battle of Speed

iPhone 5 VS Galaxy S3 In a Battle of Speed

iPhone 5

Without a doubt, the only real contenders for the title of King of the smartphone market are Apple’s iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, with both having sold in excess of 5 million units.

So, it goes without saying that those of you who are in the market for a high-end, powerful and full featured smartphone, those of you who want the best of the best, will most likely be considering both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3.

An important feature when deciding the best smartphone for a power user, is the speed of the handset, particularly when powering on, loading apps and the browser load speed, as it affects the whole experience of the handset and associated software.

While the below speed test from PhoneBuff is not entirely scientific in its processes and conclusions (e.g. there are no figures as to load time for comparison), it does give a prospective user a good idea as to the differences between the two handsets.

The speed test pits the iPhone 5 against the Galaxy S3 in the areas of power on speed, app loading speed, camera load speed and browser load speed, while also taking a look at the efficiency of each phone’s respective multitasking feature.


However, regardless of the outcome, both of these phones are excellent choices for those wanting an experience closer to a pocket PC and both are available for Phonenomena’s customers.
