In terms of which is the better phone, the article deemed the competition a tie. The author noted that while the Galaxy S3 might beat out the iPhone 4s in most categories, the author of the review maintains that "the iPhone 4s is simply much more of a pleasure to use from day to day."
Inquirer readers seem to disagree. Following are comments that were posted in response to the article:
- "After using my new [Galaxy] S3 for only an hour, the iPhone seemed like ancient technology. Like a heavy brick of ancient technology."
- "The screen size of the iPhone [4s] makes typos constant. And autocorrect is horrid. Siri is a mess and if there is any ambient sound it goes way off track."
- "Without a doubt the [Galaxy] S3 is more powerful and looks sleeker than the iPhone 4s, also the wider screen means that it's great for watching movies and TV."
- "Don't get me wrong - I do like the iPhone[4s] because it is a nice phone, but other than that when it comes to specs, processor, screen and everything else the [Galaxy] S3 is way better."
- "iPhones are just iPod touches with an extra antenna basically. If you want a real phone get the Galaxy S3."
Obviously this particular fan base is pro-Galaxy S3. However, some readers are holding out for the iPhone 5 in the hopes that Apple will produce a superior cell phone sometime in September. Here's hoping:
- "There is no comparison between these two phones. At least wait until the iPhone 5 comes out and then there might be something to compare."
- "It is interesting to see how well the 4s holds up given the time it has been on the market. Let's see what the iPhone 5 brings and how that compares."
- "Until the next generation iPhone 5 comes out, the iPhone 4s has nothing on the [Galaxy] S3."
In terms of consumer preferences, it's clear that currently the Galaxy S3 beats out the iPhone 4s nine times out of ten. Once the iPhone 5 comes out, however, things may turn around and it could be anybody's ball game.
