    it comes down to the same old argument, iOs vs Androind vs Windows. For me when you take into account price which isnt mentioned here it has to be the samsung galaxy.

    I think comparison is pointless. It all depends of individual choice. There is a huge fan following of each devices. However, as being Apple fan boy, personally I would choose iPhone 5.

      It’s true that there are fan followings for each brands. But it’s also true that there are people those who are not any particular brand lovers. This kind of comparisons helps them.

    It is worth mentioning that battery charge double fast in iPhone and iOS is highly optimised for battery consumption, so it actually saves battery and lasts long. Where iPhone completely charges in less than one hour, Samsung take 2 hours or more to completely charge.
    Actually all the three phones follow ARM cpu specs while designing, but Apple has went ahead this time and customised the ARM instruction-set for high performance and longer battery life.

    The price of iPhone 5 is too high as compare to its competitors.
