SAMSUNG GALAXY S IIIThe Samsung Galaxy S III was a game changer for Samsung and has now become synonymous with everything good about the Android and Samsung too. The S3 comes with smartness thats way ahead of its class with features like Smart Stay, S beam ( the via beam file transfer option). Furthermore this particular Samsung machine gives the top of the line expanse in your hands which very few other phones manage to do.

SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 2I don’t know whether its fortunate or unfortunate for the smartphone market at large today, that in any round up of smartphones, the list eventually ends up having at least three features from the Samsung stables which maybe crowds the segment with too much of Samsung. But then the Samsung products do deserve a place in any hall of fame that rounds up products in the Smartphone or Android phones collection. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is incredibly fast, offers great battery life but is of course very too big to handle. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 comes like a Samsung Galaxy S III but its the S-pen and other smart tweaks that makes it a winner as a crossover between an Android phone and a tablet.

However the Sony Xperia S is a really good product that one might consider having when in search of a competitive product in this segment that is well designed, performs well and at the end of the day doesn’t disappoint in performance. The best part of the Sony Xperia S is that it actually looks its price segment in all aspects of its design.
