My opinion is that Galaxy s3, this is due to its less expensiveness aswell to buy "Extras" it cost less!

Aswell it is a faster platform

Iphone has a better camera currently.

Iphone more apps

Andriod the apps come a week after they are on Iphone.

Andriod simpler system (for reliable work and activity)

Iphone good look (big name) but going down hill considering all there phones are practically the same

Andriod much cooler and getting better every year!

The thing is you should chose a phone you might want to keep for a long time (i would take s3) better specs in comparison but its all about what you want, if you want a camera phone then get iPhone or else Android is far better !

Don't get the Galaxy S3, since it is already a year old and will most likely be replaced in as little as a month.

Personally, I would go with the GS3.... I know many people with both, but overall, I know that more people are unhappy with IOS than they are with Jelly Bean 4.1.1, which the GS3 has right now, at least in my case. Here's the breakdown Spec-wise:

PPI (Pixel Density): The iphone beats the GS3 by a little (326 to 306) this means the picture might be a tad sharper on the iphone

Processor: The S3 beats the iphone with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon where the iphone has a 1.3 GHz A6

NFC: Only the S3 has it

Memory: The S3 can come with 32 but is expandable to 64 via SD (I believe) and the Iphone can go up to 64

Ram: S3 has 2 GB and the Iphone has 1 GB which can be a big difference

Thickness: The iphone wins with a .3 inch as opposed to the S3's .34 (not much of a difference)

Camera: Same back camera but the GS3 wins with a 1.9 megapixel camera in the front as opposed to the 1.2 megapixel of the iphone. I find that the iphone takes better pictures but the GS3 blew me away in video capture.

Cases: There wil be more cases for the iphone but the very popular Lifeproof case announced that they will be making a GS3 case.

Apps: There will be more useful apps on Apple's app store but I have had no problem finding apps for my S3 on Google Play.

Voice Assistant: Apple has Siri, which does more than the Android counterpart, Google Now, but google now is stunningly faster

Battery: the GS3 is said to have better battery life and I believe this is true but my S3 went down in efficiency with the battery for 16 minutes/percent to 10.6 minutes/percent. The S3's battery is also removable.

Weight: The iphone is lighter but it also is smaller

Overall: If you are a fan of IOS, get the iphone but if you are in between and really can't decide, there are other choices like the Lumia 920 which beats the iphone and the S3 in some categories. I really like my S3 and I would absolutely recommend it, and there are also features that you get with either that can sway your decision. I would go with the GS3!
Hoped this helped!
