The Samsung Galaxy SIII, most likely the most serious competitors for the iPhone 4S, arrives in shops. And test are now available on the net. When looking at the raw power, the A5 chips is still ahead.
However, when looking at the battery lifetime for web surfing or video playback, then the iPhone 4S is not the first one, neither is the Galaxy SIII.
The Galaxy SIII is probably benefiting a lot from its AMOLED display, much less power draining than the LED Retina display of the iPhone 4S. We will see in the coming weeks if the Galaxy SIII is capturing a lot of market shares and potentially impacting sales of iPhone 4S, or if as in the past, the life cycle of the last version of the iPhone will remain unchanged.
