Samsung is one of the most prolific cell phone manufacturers there is, but not every phone is an instant hit. From a smartphone-maker's standpoint, it doesn't have to be.

Top-of-the-line handsets might wow us with their sheer processing power and camera might, at least compared with the generations that came before, but companies also make strategic decisions about when to cater to more-restricted budgets and when to pile on the features. At times, we even get a mix of both.

To that end, we've rounded up today's crop of Samsung's smartphone all-stars, which includes a couple of budget-friendly options and one phone that isn't even available yet in the U.S.
