"Most well-rounded Android phone to date"

Coming from the Samsung Galaxy SII, Epic 4G Touch, I wondered if it was worthwhile to upgrade to the Galaxy SIII on Sprint. My question was answered the moment I played around with my friend's SIII. Not only is the bump from WVGA to 720p eye-opening, the difference in performance is noticeable. Granted, the SII is not a slow phone at all. It's still incredibly smooth and fast, but the SIII is just a step up. The dual-core Snapdragon S4 and Jelly Bean both work to ensure that slow down is the rarest of issues. Playing games feels amazing on the 4.8 inch screen and the processor handles even the most graphically intensive games with ease. The Tegra-3 is still going to be better for straight gaming, but overall, the processor does everything really well. The camera is also incredible. Zero shutter lag and picture quality that ensures that I don't ever have to worry about a point and shoot camera again. The HD Super AMOLED screen pops with incredible colors and the high resolution ensures text is always smooth and videos look amazing. Sure, the colors are a lot cooler when I compare the screen to my girlfriend's iPhone 5, but I far prefer the oversaturated nature of AMOLED. Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX runs very well and provides a lot of useful software features, such as Smart Stay, S-Beam and Direct Call. It's a lot of the little features that make the phone so useful. Overall, you could hardly ask for a more well-rounded phone than the Galaxy SIII. Sure, call quality isn't the best, but it's serviceable and is a lot better than my Galaxy SII, and my girlfriend's iPhone 5. The phone lasts longer than any other Android phone I've owned, and the teardrop curved design is simply wonderful to hold. The Galaxy S IV is right around the corner, I'm sure, but that shouldn't dissuade you from checking out this phone. It is a fine example of hardware and software meeting to form one complete whole.

Samsung Galaxy S III Written Review by Taylor


Samsung Galaxy S III Written...
The Samsung Galaxy S III is the third installment of the ever-popular Galaxy S series by Samsung, and it is one of the most refined and balanced Android handsets we have come across here at PhoneDog. The fact that Samsung has already sold 20 million Galaxy S III units should lend credence to its quality. With literally hundreds of Android handsets before it, the Galaxy S III boasts some of the best specifications in any mobile handset … ever, such as a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED... more...
