As the most successful smartphone manufacturer in the world, Korean technology giant Samsung has produced some of the most popular Android smartphones of all time. In this article, I will compare some key features of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note, some of the most exciting smartphones in Samsung's current line-up so you can decide which one better suits your needs.
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been one of the technology highlights for 2012. As whenever most eagerly anticipated smartphone releases to date, it does not disappoint, and has already proven to be an extremely popular device during its short time on the market. Its specification list reads like a tech enthusiast's dream. Among its key features are a 4.8 inch high definition screen, 1.4 GHz quad-core processor and an excellent 8 megapixel camera. While it certainly ticks the boxes in terms of its hardware, it also impresses on the software front. The Galaxy S3 runs the latest version of the increasingly popular Android operating system, called Ice Cream Sandwich. This works in conjunction with the Samsung TouchWiz user interface to provide even further customisation and functionality options. This is arguably the most intuitive interface to date from any Samsung smartphone, or indeed any manufacturer. Among its many impressive functions is a feature called S-Voice, which works in a similar manner to Siri on the iPhone 4S, by carrying out numerous tasks using voice commands.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is not quite as popular as the Galaxy S3, but it has also sold its fair share of units, currently over 5 million and counting. It is one of the most unique smartphones on the market, and although it ticks all the boxes, there is one feature in particular that makes it stand out. It has the biggest smartphone screen on the market, measuring a whopping 5.3 inches. This makes the Galaxy Note the ideal handset for multimedia users who like to watch movies or play games on their phone, although it is equally at home creating spreadsheets or displaying eBooks. Within the spec list of this device you will also find a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel camera and an update to the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android.
By looking at devices like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note, it is easy to see why Samsung has made its way to that top of the sales charts.
