    My vote is the SG3 for the following reasons:
    *Android OS
    *Bigger screen
    *Faster Processor
    *More carriers
    *Expandable memory
    *More colors available
    *Google voice (or S-voice on Samsung) is faster and more accurate than siri.
    *Maps actually work
    *Arguably longer battery life
    *Replaceable/Upgradeable battery
    *More control with camera options
    *Universal cables, and cheap!
    etc. etc.

    Samsung Galaxy S3. Better and bigger Super AMOLED screen, better camera options (burst shot mode and HDR), NFC and buttery smooth with no lag.

    You'll love the SGS3's Super AMOLED screen because it has the best contrast ratios out of all smartphones. The black levels are amazing and the colors are pleasurable to look at.

    The iPhone 5 is loaded with so many bugs and lag. Apple stuffed up with iOS 6 which basically makes Apple maps and navigation buggy and unusable. The locations given by Apple maps are inaccurate.

    The camera of the iPhone 5 also has many issues like the purple tinge problem.

    You do realize you're on an Android forum correct? :p

    The only people I can honestly recommend an iPhone/iPad for would be first time buyers who are completely.. what's the opposite of tech savvy?

    I don't mean to play devils advocate because I'm going from an iPhone 4 to a SG Note 2 myself (sometime soon I hope) but the screen display quality of the GS3 is the reason I'm not getting it. The pentile screen uses a RGBG pixel color configuration that gives the whites a bluish tint, or green tint in some tests. IPS screens are more color accurate while the super AMOLED screens tend to over saturate colors badly. Outside of this, I'd pick an GS3 over an iPhone any day, but if screen display is of any importance, the newer IPS displays (nexus 4, HTC one X) smoke the GS3's display.

    I do realize that the note 2 I'm getting does have a super AMOLED display, but it has been improved to a more natural RGB pixel display, mostly eliminating the bluish/greenish tint to the whites and gives better color accuracy, and size be damned if the screen has improved that much. :D

    I would agree totally. SAMOLED is low on my list of desired screens, but they do have their perks too. Great contrast, blacker blacks, low power consumption, and lower blur for video and games.

    They do however have slightly over saturated colors (which I actually like, but most reviewers count against it) and whites have a slight blue tint I think.

    You will be very happy with it I think. Don't let a few tiny specs scare you away unless you're a die hard for the best of the best screens. Besides, even Apple's IPS displays have faults.

    This is probably going to have extremely biased responses, but honestly its the S3. I have used the iphone 5 and it is quite boring in comparison to the S3.

    I can whole heartily agree with all of the above, except the S-Voice, it is not better than Siri...unfortunately it still needs some work, but is starting to look like a contender.

    With all these other Plus's though, i would still get the S3 hands down :)
