3D video shows iPhone 5 next to Samsung Galaxy S3

New video shows next-generation iPhone and best-of-class Android phone side-by-side

The next-generation of iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 5, is likely to be announced on 12 September and will go head-to-head this Christmas with Android's most popular smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S3.

While Apple has remained typically reticent about the new iPhone (the sixth-generation of iPhone), a series of leaked parts, and supposedly leaked information (plus some firmer facts such as changes to the iPhone simulator), indicate a larger and longer screen, smaller dock connector and thinner casing.

This new video, uploaded to the AnimatedVisual account, is based upon various leaks from Asian site iLab factory and conforms to what the current consensus of what the next-generation iPhone will look like. What's interesting is that it places the iPhone 5 rumour side-by-side with the current Samsung Galaxy S3.

The new-look iPhone is sleeker, and the screen is the same height, but slightly thinner. It's still smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S3, but looks like a better device. It looks like this holiday season could be an interesting battle between Samsung and Apple.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
