When Apple announced the iPhone 5, there were some who expressed dissent over the iPhone 4S successor carrying only a dual core processor and not a quad core processor, like other smartphones in the market. With that in mind, one is inclined to say that the iPhone 5 if put in a speed pit with the third iteration of Galaxy S, will suffer a humiliating defeat.
