Galaxy S3 and iPhone 4S both are brilliant smartphones of today's time. Galaxy S3 has huge fans and lovers as well as iPhone 4S has. There are a lot of people who love brand, not the specification or price. For example Apple lovers would love to buy Apple product without considering how much money they are paying for it, While Samsung lovers will not consider better features of iPhone 4S, rather they will buy a Samsung product.
