The Good Android Ice Cream Sandwich; Gorgeous 4.8-inch 720p screen; Slick lightweight design; Quad-core processor; slot for microSD card.
The Bad TouchWiz interface can be confusing; Premium price.
The Bottom Line The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a gorgeous 4.8-inch 720p resolution display, a deliciously slim and light casing and a super-powered quad-core engine. It's the Ferrari of the Android circuit so it's very expensive, and Samsung's TouchWiz software isn't always as slick as it could be. But if you're a power-loving Android fan hankering to trouser a monster, look no further.
Samsung Galaxy S3
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is easily the most anticipated Android phone of the year -- following in the footsteps of the insanely popular.
If you like to play spec-sheet top trumps, the S3 won't disappoint. This beast of a phone packs a whopping 4.8-inch 720p-resolution display and has a beefy quad-core processor ticking away under its shiny surfaces. There's a slick new design too -- albeit, this rounded look hasn't pleased everyone, with some Android fans describing it as old hat.
If you want to pocket the S3, you'll need a well-endowed wallet. It's being offered free on two-year contracts starting at £26 a month -- and rising to well over £30. If you want to avoid being tied to a contract, you can pick it up SIM-free for around £520.
