The first YouTube video that we have embedded below this story for you is a brief look at the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Android 4.3 vs. the iPhone 5 with iOS 7 beta 3, and concentrates on which is faster.

The final video is also over 11-minutes and is a review of the iPhone 5 running iOS 7 beta 3 vs. the iPhone 4 with iOS 7 beta 3. It’s interesting to see the differences between the older iPhone on iOS 7 beta 3 with the current one using the same. It begins by detailing some of the enhancements with the latest beta, including some fixes, and shows the more transparent effect on the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 4. The video goes on to show the status bar, icons, and changes in some of the apps such as calendar and weather, and other aspects such as Siri.
