Despite the iPhone 4S using the same chassis as the iPhone 4 the model still boasts eye catching looks that make it one of the most desirable phones on the market. The handsets sports an unusual glass design which consists of two glass panels that form the front and the rear of the phone. An attractive metallic strip is sandwiched between these two panels. Apple offer the handset in the traditional black finish and also a white version which looks superb. In terms of dimensions the handset measures 115.2 x 58.6 x 9.3mm which makes it one of the most compact handsets around while the quite substantial weight of 140 grammes makes the phone feel very well constructed. The Samsung Galaxy S3 boasts a much larger screen than the iPhone 4S and therefore the phone is physically larger. The handset measures 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm but despite the extra size the models still weighs less than the Apple phone at just 133 grammes. The model sports a much curvier shape than its predecessor and the iPhone and this works well with the rather large size of the handset. Although it is hard to choose between the two models for styling the Apple phone holds the upper hand for build quality. The S3 is constructed mainly from plastics which lacks the premium feel that the glass on the 4S offers.

The iPhone 4S set the standard for mobile screens and even at over six months of age the model still boasts some of the best quality available. The model makes use of a 3.5 inch LED backlit LCD display which can display a very impressive resolution of 960 x 640 pixels. This means that the model can offer a superb pixel density of 330PPI. The screen is also very durable and is treated with a special oleophobic coating to help it repel fingerprints. The new Samsung Galaxy S3 uses a very large 4.7 inch AMOLED screen. Samsung have worked hard in trying to get this display to compete with the Retina screen that is offered on the 4S. The model displays a massive resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels but despite being a much higher resolution than the iPhone the extra size of the screen means that the pixel density is 306PPI, lower than what the 4S can offer. It is very hard to choose between the two models in this area. The iPhone holds the upper hand for image quality but on what is a fairly small screen. The Samsung screen size impresses us more but a tiny bit of quality is sacrificed in order to accommodate a display of this size.
Despite being several months old the iPhone 4S still offers a nicer design than its rival thanks to its glass construction and excellent build quality. When it comes to screen technology there is little to choose between the two handsets. Consumers will ultimately decide whether they want a more compact screen with the very best image quality on the 4S or a larger display perfect for multi media use on the new S3.
