Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S3

88% Review Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) Smartphone | Notebookcheck
A new Galaxy. Samsung introduced its smartphone flagship from the latest portfolio at a big event in London. A quad-core SoC based on ARM, a 720p screen, NFC and Android 4.0 ICS belong to the must-haves of this category today. Is Samsung's Galaxy S3 the new category leader in an attractive packaging?
Motorola Moto G vs Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone comparison review: which is the best budget Android phone?
Source: PC Advisor English
Choose the Moto G if you want a more recent version of Android and a cheaper phone. The Galaxy S3 is a marginally better performer with a marginally better camera. But really these are two excellent smartphones that offer a glimpse of just how much phone you can get for relatively little cash these days.
