Aaron does a dogfight battle between two hot Sprint Ice Cream Sandwich superphones: the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC EVO 4G LTE.  The Galaxy S III offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 with the new TouchWiz.  The EVO 4G LTE offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 4.7-inch Super LCD2 HD dsiplay, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, a front-facing camera, 2,000 mAh battery, and Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.

Both are awesome, well-rounded Android phones and there's obviously some brand loyalty to HTC and Samsung (read YouTube or Facebook comments to get a feel of what I'm referring to).  Which one offers the best blend of software and hardware features?  Part 1 of 2.

Richard Jackson S3 htc makes better cameras tho
Sleepy Pillow Samsung Galaxy S3
Tyler Hell HTC EVO 4G LTE
Hasaan J. Hunter both phones are awesome id say i would go for the evo 4G LTE because of the hardware features and the added on changes as for plus it looks nice in design hardware and software the Galaxy is a great phone in software but lacks in customization it has that nostalgia for the eclair launcher but preferences are preferences
Charlie Harrison bought the EVO LTE Zand love it
Tony Abiama Evo LTE
Connor Henderson Galaxy s3 without a doubt
Carl Wiest EVOLTE! Samsung is second rate garbage. Oh and um, Sammy got a camera that shoots 4 frames per second? No, I didn't think so.
David DiMolfetta Galaxy S III. It's on Verizon now, and my contract is up in the next year!
Chris Northcutt S3 because I don't want to have to be tied in with Sprint again!
Justin Ladig galaxy s just because idl htc.
Leonardo Claudio Galaxy hands down
Roger Ohlsson None, Wait for Note 2
Travis Mayes HTC baby
Travis Mayes I will buy a evo lte all day samsung is just to plasticky for me
Teron Facey Why not both
Allison Reynolds I love my EVO I know the S3 is a good phone but after the problems I've had with Samsung I couldn't in good conscience buy a samsung phone.
Oscar Alfieri None. - If I had get a phone now, i4s. If I can wait, i5.
Rodrigo Loera i used to have a bunch of samsung products, like the capitivate, skyrocket, prevail, and each one had really bad plastic build quality so i got the htc inspire just replace my crappy broke down samsung phones and its unibody aluminum design is way better then any plastic samsung phone, so i know that htc evo lte would be way better then the gs3
Martin Martinez To be honest I would take any phone as long as the network works with the phone meaning I can use full functions for example I have sprint and I will not spend any money untill I see the 4g service
Luis Herrera Iphone 5
Joe Genarella @ Justin the S3 has a Qualcomm S4 snapdragon
Justin Moore Evo, Sammy radios (signal, GPS, WiFi etc) are all third rate junk. Sprint uses a Qualcomm signal and Sammy uses third party chips instead of Qualcomm chips or at least used to. Not sure about the S3 though. Which leads to worse reception...plus touchwiz is atrocious. Had an epic, nexus s and Galaxy Note. Hated everyone of them. Will NEVER buy a Samsung phone again.
Cody Williams S3 evos are boring
Ivan Trudeau I have the original EVO and i will buy the EVO LTE for my upgrade in August. HTC Sense just makes sense 2 me v.s. touchwiz, YUCK
Bryan Sager EVO, no question.
Zach Brito I got the Evo, but both are awesome!!
Jose Angel Santiago Galaxy s3 hands down!!!
Brad Plowman Htc evo 4g lte

Dayan Inclán Galaxy S III, of course.
Alfonzo Johnson A man phone is a EVO 4g LTE a woman fone is the Samsung galaxy s 3
Cesario Brito Jr. I know Aaron is going to pick the GS3. I would pick the EVO....better screen and touchwiz still looks like gingerbread.

Eduardo Ordaz @lizardo both of these phones rape it. By the time its released there will be more better phones out there that rape it so bad.
Miguel Serrano both phones r great but galaxy s3 has more software to play with both have the same hard ware so i heard lol but im thinking of going with the galaxy s3 i have an evo 3d and had an evo 4g and now the evo 4g lte it not much of a big diffence for me
