No doubt in my mind the iphone has the superior ecosystem, however.
The 4S was also pretty powerful.

I don't agree with a lot of what was posted on the last page, specifically about "popularity" being what a phone should be about or that being the reason why it's a "strong" phone.

Some might say "beats" are synonymous with headphones for a majority of people. Does that mean headphones should strive to sound like beats? Dear God, I hope not.

I do agree that the iPhone changed the mobile world, but in the last few iterations, there hasn't been a real big innovation. The 4S and 5 didn't add anything big to the table (unless you count Siri). Yes there are hardware improvements, but like Android, most users will not care or make use of the advances in specs.

Your last comment is just totally ridiculous.
On paper the S3 has a faster processor but have you actually used both? OS and design makes a huge difference.
The S3's running a 1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 with 2Gb of RAM where as the iPhone's CPU is based on the next gen A15 architecture BUT it's not just an standard ARM SOC, the chip itself was custom designed by Apple and only based on the A15 architecture licensed from ARM. AND it only had 1Gb of RAM.
Play games like Infinity Blade and GOF2 from at App Store, nothing on Google's Play store even comes close to those games and we've got stuff like Real Racing 3 coming too. Do you expect Apple to super charge their stock apps to use more memory and clock cycles? It's about saving power not wasting it, 99% of apps open instantly and the UI is snappy as hell. What more do you want?
What does the S3 have over iPhone "that can utilize that hardware" NFC? Burst mode shooting? device to device photo sharing? None of these things are CPU or GPU intense yet Samsung feels the need to put 2Gb of RAM in there. YOU DON'T NEED 2GB OF RAM ON A SMART PHONE, not yet anyway.
Apple have streamlined, they've made their OS efficient so it doesn't need mountains of RAM thus saving battery life. They've designed their own custom chip based on the latest tech they could get their hands on. What did Samsung do? Shoved more RAM in it and bought a standard chip and OC'd it slightly.
In the real world the iPhone 5 has far superior hardware, it's better for games, it instantly opens apps, the UI is fast and responsive.
Stop saying stupid stuff, people come on here to get information and your just spouting nonsense, both are good phones, high-end smart phones better at some tasks than the other.

The UI on the S3 is flawless. Without paying attention, I'll be running 20 or more apps at the same time and It's almost as if there is no apps running in the background. The OS never seems to lag for me, and apps almost always open instantly. iOS isn't bad, but I prefer Android.

Yes, sure. Although, as everyone knows those aren't the best in their respective areas. Bose is terrible for SQ and charges WAY too much.

Also, saying S3 UI is the best or perfect or whatever other honorable mention you want to give to it is completely subjective.

Perfection is the best, objective.

Perfection is subjective - nothing is truly perfect; thus anything called perfect would be subject to the person's opinion on said thing's imperfections

I'm not so familiar with the Samsung Galaxy S3. The time I spent testing its features is only about a minute or so when a co-worker of mine showed it to me. My overall impression with the Galaxy is that it's fast & reacts a lot better than the older iPhone 4 than I've currently used. I do used couple of smart phones in the past even before the 1st iPhone came out. I'm more familiar of the old Symbian as will as with Windows Mobile OSs. In terms with iPhone & that of Windows Mobile, the iPhone is a lot better. Before owning an iPhone I used to use more often the Slingbox app on Windows Mobile to watch TV. When the iPhone came, to my surprised the Slingbox app on the iPhone was a lot better. It's more refined as if the developer of the app really took the time in creating an app far superior than its predecessors.

My point on this is that the 3rd party support in terms of application development is a lot better on the iPhone than that of the Windows Mobile. The way I look at the Android market is that it's almost there with the iPhone in terms of 3rd party support. But you have to think that the iPhone have a lot headstart. It already established itself as a niche product.

As far as the Android itself, I've tested on my brother's LG android tablet. To be honest, I didn't like it. Perhaps because I'm used with the iPhone. I just think the iPhone is more polished. I happened to talk recently with my brother about his iPad & that of his LG tablet & he told me he had some regrets on getting that LG tablet. He also thinks the iPad is a lot better.

Here's also the bad thing about the Galaxy. As of September 2012, the Galaxy is a subject of a high-profile lawsuit between Samsung & Apple. You got to see the bigger picture here (not just the Galaxy's higher specs). Whatever the outcome of this ongoing lawsuit by Apple against Samsung will have an big impact on the mobile phone market. As you all know, Samsung was hit with about 1 billion fine on an patent infringement lawsuit just recently against Apple. The impact on 3rd party support on some Samsung smartphones including the Galaxy is not something that must be taken for granted.
