The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been lording it for a while now, but since the iPhone 5 arrived in town, there’s been a dirty fight going on. Can the S3 fend off this slinky contender to retain its top sales slot?
Samsung Galaxy S3: expert reviews explored
The Samsung Galaxy S3 media management and chipset are fabulous, but it’s taken some serious criticism for rapid battery drain and its glossy-but-tacky plastic back. It’s totally outclassed by the iPhone 5, the Nokia Lumia 920 and even some Android phones in the looks department, and this is a problem. It falls down on other fronts as well – the Nokia Lumia 920 has the best camera now, the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD has the longest battery life now, and the HTC One X+ looks amazing while still providing top-notch hardware. Even the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has turned out to be a bigger and better S3.
