Samsung has just revealed their new flagship phone the Samsung Galaxy S3, which without any doubt will put some other manufacturers into trouble. We already know that if there is a phone worth competing against Apple’s iPhone, its Samsung’s Galaxy S line of phones. With the new Apple iPhone 4S already released, Samsung has also updated its Galaxy SII with its successor, upgrading most of the specifications and giving it a larger screen than iPhone.
Analysts have already predicted that this phone is going to be a lot of trouble for the competitors of Samsung because of the extreme popularity of the Galaxy brand and the heavy marketing campaign that the company does for it. Samsung also surprised everyone with the release of the phone just ahead of us at the end of May.
Samsung has been enjoying a lot of good time since it took over the leading phone manufacturer Nokia at the beginning of this year. With the new phone, the company is all set to take on its arch rival, Apple. Analysts are already predicting huge sales for the phone simply because of the fact that the phone has been set for being the official phone of the Olympics 2012. With the new phone, we can now expect Apple to come up with an answer in the next 5 months with a new phone.
For the time being, let’s put aside everything else and see how these two phones fair against each other in direct comparison.
- Processor: Dual-Core A5 Chip
- OS: iOS
- Screen: 3.5 inches Retina display

- OS: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

As you can see from the comparison that Samsung clearly takes the lead in direct comparison, however it is still not clear how the phone will run when the final piece will arrive in the market. Samsung currently claims to have used a better battery then its rival; we tend to find that out for ourselves.
