A new Galaxy. Samsung introduced its smartphone flagship from the latest portfolio at a big event in London. A quad-core SoC based on ARM, a 720p screen, NFC and Android 4.0 ICS belong to the must-haves of this category today. Is Samsung's Galaxy S3...

Samsung Galaxy S3 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S3, one of the most anticipated Android smartphone ever, finally arrives in the USA after a successful launch in Europe and elsewhere. In its final North American form, the Galaxy S3 differs from its international cousins in [...]

It is fair to say that the Galaxy S3 is an excellent smartphone. While it is not the “revolution” that Samsung fans were waiting for, the S3 deserves its spot in the Android Hall of Fame. Its design had created some controversy, but we do like it – a...

Samsung Galaxy S III (Boost Mobile)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the best smartphone you can get on Boost Mobile, but it'll cost you.

Large, high-resolution screen. Fast processor. 4G LTE support. Good camera. Runs Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean).

Expensive. Data speeds are not quite as fast as many other carriers.

Pricing, Comparisons, and Conclusions Sure it's over a year old on other carriers, but the Galaxy S III is still a great phone, and it's likely to remain Boost's best smartphone for the foreseeable future. Boost has two other LTE phones right now: the...

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S III: Advanced fence-sitting

 

Upgrader's dilemmas. We've had a few of those over the years but, every once in a while, deciding between the next generation and the last transcends the limits of a brand. By consistently delivering the goods, the Galaxy line has become synonymous...

So, what may as well be last season's top smartphone against a hot favorite for this year's gold. Samsung must be proud of the fact that both carry its signature. Future Galaxy S4 users will feel safe knowing they're getting a future-proofed device...

Samsung Galaxy S III (Cricket Wireless)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III is still one of the world's best smartphones, and available from Cricket Wireless at an unusually low price.

Excellent screen. Fast processor. High-quality camera. Will get more features as time goes on.

Android 4.1 not yet available at time of review. Cricket's 4G coverage is very limited.

Pricing, Comparisons, and Conclusions The Samsung Galaxy S III is Cricket's best smartphone, by a long shot. Both the phone's quality and its pricing contribute to this. Cricket has three LTE phones: the Galaxy S III, the HTC One SV , and the LG...

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.

Conclusions The Samsung Galaxy S III is the best and most powerful phone MetroPCS is selling right now, which is why it gets a rather qualified Editor's Choice award. But if $500 is a serious chunk of change to you and you have the time to wait, I'd...

Google Nexus 4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: Fan favorites

 

Android devices come from all walks of life, but in each generation there is a "chosen one". In 2012, it's the Nexus 4 and, as an overall package, this is probably the best Google has ever delivered. Yet, by a mean twist of fate, it has the most...

The LG Optimus G and the Samsung Galaxy S III are the best Android can currently offer. Picking between a smartphone that came to the market five months ago and one that is just arriving might have seemed easy at first, but after the somewhat...

Apple iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: All rise

 

When we review phones we try to put them in context, and tie everything up with a snapshot of the market and the closest alternatives. Now, we usually keep droids and iPhones separate because honestly they just don't mix. But every now and then, they...

Those hoping for an X-is-better-than-Y-period-! answer will be disappointed. The way the crowd at a boxing match will feel about a win on points instead of a knockout. Like someone running for office wins debates to lose an election.

Samsung Galaxy S III vs. Note II: Sizing up

 

The Galaxy S III and the Note II are both cut from the same cloth, but one is XL while the other is XXL. What can we say - someone at Samsung must be busy spinning and weaving.
