Why iPhone 5 And Samsung Galaxy S3 Tied in Web Traffic Usage Share

iphone 5 vs samsung galaxy s3

The most prominent manufacturers of smart phones are definitely Samsung and Apple. Both companies are synonymous with quality and reliability. The features offered by them are pretty much the same and vary only to the minutest of details. Everything from the high class HD display right down to the inner components is just perfect and needs no modifications as such. All this makes it really tough to choose between the world’s most distinguished smart phones, namely iPhone 5 by Apple and Samsung Galaxy S3 for Samsung.

iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 may be similar in terms of components. The OS systems are different yet offer pretty much the same features, which is why they are often compared on a side by side basis. Despite this, the iOS and the Android platforms are still caught up in a fierce battle with both parties holding strong. Experts believe that the battle will not end anytime soon because fans of both operating systems are present in millions across the globe.

Recently, a survey which analyzed the web traffic that came from both Apple and Samsung products was conducted. The research particularly focused on the number of users who surf the Internet on either the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S3. The iPhone 5 was launched sometime after the Samsung Galaxy hit the market but a longer user trial followed it than that for the Samsung’s Galaxy S3.

According to the results, iPhone 5 is used by almost 56% people whereas Samsung Galaxy S3 is used by only 44%. If you take a look at the actual figures, approximately 149.7 million iPhone devices have been sold as indicated by another survey, which is probably why iPhone 5 is slightly more popular. Another research conducted in different regions concludes that iPhone 5 shares 51% of the web traffic and Samsung Galaxy is characterized by 49% of Internet traffic. These stats intensify the competition even further.

As you can see, iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 have a fairly close competition. The following reasons can perhaps account for this.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Release Date

The Samsung Galaxy S4 was already launched last March 14, 2013. Everyone likes to have their hands on the latest products in the market so after the release; the sales of existing models go down considerably. On the other hand, Apple has not even announced the release date for their next model in the iPhone product line yet which is why the sales for the iPhone 5 is still going pretty strong in the market.


The iPhone 5 features the all new Retina Display screen which results in an exceptional screen quality and vivid colors on the screen. Samsung Galaxy S3 HD offers Super AMOLED which is amazing but the iPhone 5 screen gives a better output.


The costs associated with any cellular operator or mobile broadband plan largely depends on the type of plan you choose. It could be that iPhone 5 users are somewhat wiser and carefully select a plan so that they incur the minimum possible costs. Since bills are low, the Internet is used more. In contrast to this, if Samsung Galaxy S3 users are not selecting the right plans, they might not be using the Internet much because of high costs. After all, choosing an incorrect plan does result in a significant upswing in monthly bills; and hence, you should consider all possible options.

The Bottom Line

You cannot really compare the iPhone 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S3, and thus figure out accurate reasons why the stats related to their web traffic are neck to neck. The iPhone 5 may be more user-friendly and robust but Samsung Galaxy S3 fans will never agree to this. Both devices offer countless apps to those who would like to spend their time away by tapping onto their smart phones. Both also offer similar media options for those who plug in their headphones the whole day.

In a nutshell, there is no clear winner because the differences are only slight between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3.

New iPhone 5 Rumors, News, and Updates


Remember how we all got excited about the iPhone 5 last year? It was a big disappointment because there was no iPhone 5 released in 2011, only the iPhone 4S.

But the rumors had never ceased. We still hear new iPhone 5 rumors, news, and updates everywhere on the tech world over the web. This time around, it looks more real than last year although we are still yet to find out. Nonetheless, for all you interested iPhone fans out there, the information below are exhilarating enough to make you want to have or at least see the real iPhone 5 soon!

Release Date and Price

There were already reports about the iPhone 5’s release date as early as February this year. Based on numerous technology sites and sources, the most probable date will be on September 12. The phone is supposedly going to be introduced along with the iPad mini. But still, other rumors are not to be disregarded which include an October release. The same schedule as last year’s release date for the iPhone 4S.

The price will be expected to remain relatively the same if not increase slightly from the iPhone 4S’s price.

Form Factor

Supposedly, the iPhone 5 will have a completely different casing from previous iPhone devices such as what had been seen in the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 4.

Specifications and Features

The iPhone 5 will definitely be powered by the iOS 5. Although, the iOS 6 was already introduced during Apple’s yearly event WWDC in June, a new phone won’t be able to experience the new operating system yet. But there had been reports saying that A6 quad core chips are to be used for the upcoming iPhone 5. It’s also going to have 1 GB of RAM with a possibility of a 64 GB memory storage space. 4G or LTE can also be expected since iPad devices are now using this type of Internet connection. It will obviously be built with WiFi and other basic features normally included for Apple devices.

As for the screen, rumor has it that it’s going to be about 4 inches with retina display and will be made of curved glass. Not the usual glass we break but something similar to anti-scratch Gorilla glass for handheld gadgets. It will allegedly use the liquid metal technology as well. Apple sealed a deal two years ago for exclusive rights to this technology. With liquid metal, various devices can boast of extreme strength due to a metal alloy.

The camera will feature 8MP with a built-in front facing HD camera installed and an image sensor capability with 3D imaging which is supposedly manufactured by Sony. It will also feature 1080p HD technology for the best resolution possible. The phone’s SIM card will be the newer micro SIM cards which are already being utilized by newly released smart phones.

With the NFC technology readily available in most mobile devices, the iPhone 5 will definitely be powered by NFC as well. All the usual features including a digital wallet will then be made available.

These new iPhone 5 rumors, news, and updates about the iPhone 5 will definitely make us want to fast forward into September or October. But until, all we can do is to discuss about it. Like what features we want to see? How much we expect it to cost? So on and so forth. What are your thoughts? Let us know!
