Samsung Galaxy S3 review roundup
The Samsung Galaxy S3 chipset, battery and media management are superb, but the phone has had serious flak for rapid battery drain and cheap plastic looks. The iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and a number of Android smartphones outclass the S3 in looks, and this is a serious flaw. Some topple it when it comes to other features as well e.g. the best camera title has to go to the Nokia Lumia 920, the longest battery life to the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD, and striking looks to the HTC One X+. Even the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looks out to be a bigger and more feature-packed version of the S3.
