The Samsung Galaxy S III is rightly touted as the best Android phone ever and follows the iconic success of its long-loved predecessor- the Galaxy S II. If you loved the S II, you would hold this Android smartphone close to your heart. It improves upon everything that the Galaxy S II was nice about but in the end, it still may have not got sufficient guns to take down Apple’s iPhone.

Pros and Cons
Samsung has been superb with the Galaxy S3 series, and the new installment is no different with a fast 1.5 GHz, dual core CPU at its core and running on ICS with support for 4G technologies the device is bound to make a strong statement, and it does it beautifully. The interfaces are blazing fast and performance unparalleled due to the high-class hardware and well designed software. The top end smartphone will go still better when Android Jelly Bean will come through.
However, one thing is crucial to note here- S Voice, the digital voice assistant in the lines of Siri has been a massive disappointment. S Voice looks ordinary and looks a mere shadow of the popular iPhone voice assistant. On the contrary, S Beam, this uses NFC technology to open a Wi-Fi sharing connection! This is a vast improvement on the Android Beam software. The interface of HTC One X is said to be better, though the Samsung’s TouchWiz UI of the S III is not any unpleasant.
