Summary - With well over double the votes from readers and a significant lead in the Mobile Tech Expert's chart, the Samsung Galaxy S III takes the #1 spot in both charts for PhoneDog Media's Official Smartphone Rankings™ for the month of August. This marks the second consecutive month that the Samsung Galaxy S III topped both charts. However, September is shaping up to be a busy month in the mobile realm.

For the entire month of August, the Samsung Galaxy S III dominated both the People's Choice Chart and the Mobile Tech Expert's Chart. With over double the reader votes and 165 total points from experts, the Samsung Galaxy S III is ranked the all-around best smartphone for the second month in a row. September, however, will only prove to be a big test for the current fan favorite.

The HTC One X held second place quite steadily throughout the month. But trailing the total reader votes of the Samsung Galaxy S III by 743 votes, there was little chance the HTC One X of would #1 spot again.

In the Mobile Tech Expert's Chart, the HTC One X took seconds for the month with 134 total points. Following in third was the Apple iPhone 4S with 110 points.

“Samsung wins again with the Galaxy S III, but expect a challenge from new smartphones as the holiday shopping season approaches,” said Aaron Baker, Editor-in-Chief of PhoneDog.
