The conclusion :

iPhone is the winner and is much better as compared to Samsung Galaxy S3 but if one needs a bigger display and customization the he/she might go for S3 but if one wants pure device and ultimate UI experience with faster mode and Graphics then iPhone 5 is the best preference.

  2. Did you actually compare this or did you forget that there is no Flash and web browsing is a problem unless web developers adapt to html 5 so you can see the web page. You didnt see flash on an iPhone How does that make it a clear winner.
