Summary: Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. Unfortunately, it only runs on Sprint's 3G network for now.
Cons: The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed. Until Sprint's LTE launch, data speeds drag on the carrier's 3G network.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a gorgeous 4.8-inch 720p resolution display, a deliciously slim and light casing and a super-powered quad-core engine. It's the Ferrari of the Android circuit so it's very expensive, and Samsung's TouchWiz software isn't always as slick as it could be. But if you're a power-loving Android fan hankering to trouser a monster, look no further.
Cons: TouchWiz interface can be confusing; Premium price.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S3 certainly hasn’t lost anything (save for an FM radio) by stepping into the world of 4G and it’s clear to see the benefits of a device able to run at such a fast pace, however a prospective customer needs to weigh up the pros and cons of an undertaking such as this at this point in the game.
Pros: 4G mobile browsing speeds, Excellent design and UI, Beautiful screen
Cons: Battery suffers under 4G, Plastic construction, Expensive tariffs
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC One – if you’re a HTC fan in exile, this is the time to return
28 July 2013
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a long time on sale and you can get it for around $150-200 with a contract or $550-650 without a contract and unlocked. That’s a great price, and judging by the previous two models, the resale price will be quite high even in a couple of years. The prices are lower now that the Galaxy S4 is also out, so it’s the perfect time to get this phone – unless you want something more future proof and more unique, in which case the HTC One is a better...
Excerpt: While Google's Android platform has proven itself to be a tenacious competitor for Apple's iOS over the past few years, one thing it has arguably lacked is a readily identifiable 'hero' handset, which can effortlessly capture the imagination and support of the general public. 2011's Samsung Galaxy S2 was as close as Android has ever gotten to this kind of lead device, and it has so far shifted an amazing 24 million units globally, allowing Samsung to leapfrog Apple to...
Google Nexus 4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: Fan favorites
21 December 2012
Conclusion: When Google announced that the next Nexus will pack four Krait cores and an upgraded camera, all for the price of $300 ($350 for the more sensible, 16GB version), there was a short moment when it seemed that everyone after an Android phone would be crazy not to get a Nexus 4. It was better and cheaper than anything else out there. Then reality interjected. Users realized the limited storage would be felt sooner rather than later, even in the "big" version.
