Display Size: S3 is big. It comes with 4.8-inch screen and there is no phone in the market as big as S3 (except Samsung’s own phone, Samsung Galaxy note which is more of a phablet). Apple iPhone5 undoubtedly looks bigger than its predecessor (iPhone4s with 3.5 inch screen) with 4 inch display but it falls short of S3 screen size by0 .8 inches.
Display resolution: Here iPhone 5 emerges as the clear winner with its 640 x 1136 pixels .Its clarity and richness is impressive (though HTC One X with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels at 312 PPI, certainly competes with Apple’s smaller, 4inch screen, which features a still attractive resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels but at a sharper 326 PPI) . The big and handsome Samung S3 with 720 x 1280 pixels at 306ppi fails to have clarity and sharpness which can be matched to iPhone5.
Visibility in sun: We give the trophy of daylight display to iPhone 5 as DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira has rated iPhone 5 at 121 in terms of brightness and contrast and Samsung S3 at 45-57. What gives Samsung S3 less brightness when taken outdoors, is its much-hyped power management settings.
Technology behind displays: Apple is known for its Retina Display technology which became popular with iPhone4. iPhone 5 proudly boasts of Retina Display coupled with LED- backlit IPS TFT capacitive touch screen. Apple has made iPhone5 scratch resistant by coating the device with Corning’s Gorilla glass. On the other hand Samsung S3 sports Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with 16M colors. To give extra protection to the screen Samsung has also incorporated Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 technology. Another thing which is appealing about Samsung S3 is its TouchWiz UI interface which makes for a great user experience
All in all iPhone 5 emerges as the clear winner in the war of displays. It’s only the screen size where iPhone 5 looses but when it comes to clarity and brightness is it hard to beat the delicious iPhone 5.
