0

The release of the iPhone 5 happens at the end of this week and those with an iOS preference will be firmly in the camp of those picking up a new Apple device as soon as they can. Those without a preference one way or the other will likely look to what is on offer in terms of hardware before making a choice.

Taking a look at the specifications for the three largest handsets on the market or due soon (one for each major operating system) is one way to make a decision on the matter. Below is a comparison between Apple’s iPhone 5, Nokia’s Lumia 920 WP 8 flagship handset and Samsung’s Galaxy S III.
