Samsung Galaxy S III Indepth Review

Rating: 9.0.

Samsung has stolen the Android show in recent years with their Galaxy series and each iteration of its S line has taken the Korean brand ever closer to Apple-like levels of anticipation, excitement and sales figures. With the Galaxy S III, Samsung hopes to continue, and even exceed, their own expectations of their latest flagship device.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the direct successor to the Galaxy S II, a phone that has sold over 20 million units to date, so from the start it has high goals to live up to. A look at the most basic of specification sheets will reveal that the Galaxy S III has a bigger and better display and a faster processor over its predecessor.

More importantly is perhaps the Galaxy’s main rival, the HTC One X, which we recently reviewed and will be mentioned periodically throughout this review.
