A new Galaxy. Samsung introduced its smartphone flagship from the

Samsung Galaxy S III (MetroPCS)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the best phone for a network that's on its way out.

Most powerful smartphone on MetroPCS. Excellent call quality

Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S III is MetroPCS's best smartphone, although you'll pay a high up-front price for this quality. MetroPCS's version of the Galaxy S III brings 4G LTE speed and great tricks like Wi-Fi calling and Google Wallet with NFC. It's good...

Samsung Galaxy S III (U.S. Cellular)

 

U.S. Cellular is serving up Samsung's Galaxy S III ($199 for 16GB, $249 for 32GB) the way it was truly intended. The Editor's Choice hardware here is the same as you'll find on the Sprint and Verizon models, but U.S. Cellular's S III has been stripped...

State-of-the-art everything. Advanced call-quality features

Very limited 4G LTE coverage. Screen could be brighter

The Samsung Galaxy S III is, hands down, the best smartphone available on U.S. Cellular.

Samsung Galaxy S III (16GB - blue, U.S. Cellular)

 

This review of U.S. Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S3 differs from versions on other carriers primarily in the evaluation of apps, call quality, and network performance.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.

The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed us. You can only roam at 3G speeds outside of U.S. Cellular's home network.

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.

Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon Wireless)

 

Now that we've tested the Galaxy S III on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, which is the best? All have the same huge display, slim design, and cool features such as S Beam, Share Shot, and Motion controls, not to mention a fast and accurate 8-MP...

Slim and comfortable design; Lots of fun sharing options ; Good battery life; Fast camera; Impressive 4G LTE speeds

Screen difficult to read in sunlight; S Voice not as good as Siri

Verizon's version of the Galaxy S III offers excellent 4G LTE speeds and battery life along with a ton of impressive innovations.

Samsung Galaxy S III (T-Mobile)

 

Eveywhere you turn there's a carrier selling the Samsung Galaxy S III. And why not? You get a huge 4.8-inch screen in a thin design, as well as lots of fun sharing options and gestures that will make friends and family say "Wow." However, T-Mobile...

Strong graphics and performance; Loud rich audio; Fast camera; Slim comfortable design; Lots of sharing options

More expensive up front than other carriers; Relatively dim display; No 4G LTE support

The most powerful Android phone on T-Mobile, the Samung Galaxy S III has a fast camera and a beautiful design, but the up-front cost is steep.

Samsung Galaxy S III (16GB - blue, Sprint)

 

This review of Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S III varies from my review of the T-Mobile and AT&T models in the areas of apps, call quality, and data performance.

The Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.

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.

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.
