For the ninth week and counting, no smartphone has mustered enough votes or expert points to truly contest the Samsung Galaxy S III. However, there is an arsenal of new devices on the horizon. Which one will upset Galaxy S III fans?

MT. PLEASANT, SC – Now approaching seven-months-old, PhoneDog Media's Official Smartphone Rankings™ (OSR) continues to set the standard for ranking the best smartphones the mobile market has to offer. For the ninth consecutive week, the Samsung Galaxy S III has completely dominated both charts. In the People's Choice Chart, the Samsung Galaxy S III bested the HTC One in second place by 174 reader votes. Likewise, it beat the Apple iPhone 4S by 15 points in the Mobile Tech Expert's Chart.

The HTC One X held its position for week 27, continuing its long stay at the #2 position in the People's Choice Chart. Surprisingly, the Nokia Lumia 900 found its way back into one of the top three spots, beating the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (global) by a single vote. In the Mobile Tech Expert's Chart, with 31 points, the Apple iPhone 4S held the #2 position for the second week in a row, only besting the HTC One X by a single point.

“While the Samsung Galaxy S III remains on the top, expect both charts to change as the new Apple iPhone and offerings by Samsung, Nokia, and Motorola hit the marketplace" said Aaron Baker, Editor-in-Chief of PhoneDog.
