If you are an Android dedicated user then the title we have here is a little harsh, it will of course hit a nerve and get many thinking. We have said that the iPhone 5 threatens to embarrass the Samsung Galaxy S3 simply because Foxconn believes that the Apple smartphone will put the SGS3 to shame.
To date the Samsung Galaxy S3 Android phone has been slated one of the best mobile phones ever to be released, it has a large screen, looks stunningly sleek, very light indeed considering the size and it will obviously break the Android sales record. Apple according to the Examiner is still the top manufacture of smartphones with Samsung coming in at a close second, the only handset that can shame the Samsung phone has to be the iPhone 5 and Foxconn do believe this.
Terry Gou, CEO of Hon Hai, which is owned by the Foxconn factory mentioned at a shareholders meeting that consumers should really wait for the iPhone 5, because this is the phone that will put the Samsung galaxy S3 to shame. Terry Gou said that it is his life’s work to beat Samsung, this is understandable considering Samsung and Foxconn have had a bad relationship with each other.
The iPhone 5 if it really wants to embarrass the SGS3 needs to have a better battery life than the current iPhone 4S, the battery issues at the moment according to our earlier article suggests a September launch, but then of late we have heard rumours of an August release, the display screen needs to be a little bigger judging on the current Android market. The first iPhone’s released so far have a 3.5-inch display, talks of a 3.999-inch display and a 4-inch iPhone 5 display has been mentioned on a few occasions, even talks of resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels has had its mention, new sizes are rumoured to be about be 125mm x 58.5mm x 7.4mm.
Features that will help the iPhone 5 gain even more success: A 3D camera is a good option, but according to the U.S Patent Office Apple plans on bringing to the table a removable rear cover with integrated optical elements, things such as image stabilization, optical zoom, a real flash with its own power source and a mechanical shutter function is indeed possible. How about Bluetooth 4.0, built-in FM radio, WiFi and WiFi-Direct?
Thinking a little deeper into the iPhone 5 features, how about multi-touch point focus, NFC technology, the possibilities’ are endless. What we do know is that the new iPhone 5 will most definitely be something very special and will make you sit back in awe, but it is a little hasty to suggest it will put the Samsung Galaxy S3 to shame, we all have a choice in what we want to buy that does not give us the right to slag of the competition.
