I think you were looking for the <a href="http://geekaphone.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S-III">Galaxy S III</a>?
You are looking at the Samsung Galaxy 3, which us an older phone. I assume you were looking for the <a href="http://geekaphone.com/compare/Apple-iPhone-5-vs-Samsung-Galaxy-S-III">Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5</a>.

I assume you were looking for the <a href="http://geekaphone.com/compare/Apple-iPhone-5-vs-Samsung-Galaxy-S-III">Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5</a> which you can find <a href="http://geekaphone.com/compare/Apple-iPhone-5-vs-Samsung-Galaxy-S-III">here</a>.
All the specs on The Galaxy 3 are wrong. Whoever wrote this must favor IPhone 5 because they made the Galaxy 3 look like crap when mostly everything on it is better than Iphone
A newly released phone against a 2 year old phone? That must be a tough comparison, wait, its not. Where is the comparison of the Galaxy S III on the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS? You could be reasonable about it. This is embarrassing for you, terrible journalism, and incredibly biased. Your description under "details" literally does nothing. In sections where you have complete data(you can't find information for a 2 year old phone?!), the details do nothing. Here is an example: "Camera Flash- Yes vs Yes -Both have camera flashes". This is below third grade reading level, and most children that young don't read biased iPhone articles. I guess it says something about the author, they have low intelligence and they reasonlessly LOVE the iPhone.
this is loaded with misinformation. good job.
Speculations on the Samsung Galaxy III are incorrect through out the article.
