I have a Sony Xperia Arc S and have only had it for a few months (my first smartphone), it has terrible battery... (although no issues have occurred with it), the hardware seems well built but I have a major problem with the software recently programs have been failing to start and when I try to use certain programs it fails to operate (if anyone knows a fix it woudl eb appreciated)

Samsung Galaxy S3 has the best hardware. It is also the most reliable and smoothest. Also it has a replaceable battery (huge bonus) and you can also buy storage cards (called microSD cards) for more data storage. It also comes with NFC (near field communication) meaning you can share photos and other fun media with friends instantaneously if they're near you.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 uses a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED screen which is more vibrant and has much higher contrast than the iPhone's screen. Also a 4.8" screen is much preferable over a 4" screen as most people these days prefer a larger screen (unless you're a midget with tiny hands). It also comes with a more durable battery (2100mAh).
The Samsung Galaxy S3 also has better 3G/4G LTE Internet speeds and also more RAM. This means webpages will load more quickly and there is less delay. The call quality and antenna quality on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is also much better than the iPhone 5.
Do NOT get iPhone 5. It has the worst maps app ever (Apple ruined iOS 6 so bad). Tim Cook had to make a statement to apologize and said that iPhone users should download Google maps instead. Such a fail for Apple. The iPhone 5 also lacks NFC so it is less sociable.
The iPhone 5 has the smallest screen out of any modern smartphone at 4". This makes reading text harder and the touchscreen has build quality problems (reported by many users). So watch out, there is a high chance you might get an iPhone with a crappy touchscreen.
