Phone comparison

So there was a conversation with a friend of mine from work who wanted a direct comparison of phones with my opinion embedded it. So with that being said, here we go:

The phones I will be comparing will be Samsung S3, LG Nexus 4 and iPhone 5.

From the analysis of the table and personally using the Samsung Galaxy 3 and Apple iPhone 5, they almost have similar features towards one another but the biggest difference here is mainly the interface.
So lets start off with Samsung. Their phone has a higher quality secondary camera holding 1.9 megapixels so it would be great for those who like to webcam or video call with their friends / family. It also has the capability of browsing the web with its full performance as a PC as you are able to see Flash content as it has always been a problem before. In addition, it holds an expandable memory slot for a user to have the option to slot in another 64GB for extra data if needed.
The LG Nexus 4 is the mid-range between the two phones. In other words, the phone sits literally middle but with the one major difference. The price… It is one powerful phone with an extraordinary price Google has to offer. One thing that may drag down the device is the fact that it does not support the newly developed 4G network. However, since it has been recently introduced, there isn’t much you’re missing out upon. But depends upon a persons preference.
And finally, the iPhone 5. With the sleek design that I am still amazed at, it surprisingly holds less features. With the dual-core 1.2GHz speed and the 1.2 megapixel secondary camera, the price does not add up.
Like I said, it all depends on the operating system that each phone holds. The iOS installed on the iPhone has always been smooth and the customisation is limited but liveable. Android has been a competitor for a while and as read a while back, Android is taking the lead, their apps are increasing and also their customisation is very much its beauty of it. To top it all off, there are a wide range of phones to choose from.
So all in all, from the looks of everything, I am happy with purchasing the LG Nexus 4 as it is very cheap and it does precisely what a phone is supposed to do.
What is your choice?
