We pitch the world's biggest smartphone rivals head to head to see which is worthier of your £500
Samsung and Apple are big players in the smartphone market right now, both vying for the position of dominant handset maker.
Each firm also claims that their designs have been infringed by the other, and have requested court orders in attempts to ban sales of the other's devices in various countries.
Regardless of the merit of these claims, it seems that Apple and Samsung are likely to be bitter rivals for the near future, and here we've lined up the top devices from each to see how they really compare.
Released in autumn last year, Apple's iPhone 4S has become the smartphone of choice for a large percentage of the mobile market, fending off competition from various Android devices including Samsung's previous flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S2.
Then in May Samsung launched its highly anticipated Galaxy S3, boasting bigger and better specifications than the iPhone 4S, as well as any other Android phone for that matter.
But will the Galaxy S3's bigger screen, thinner and lighter design and more powerful processor mean it is a strong enough contender to attract market share from Apple fanatics? Here we pit the two giants' flagship smartphones head to head to see which one is most worthy of your £500.
