Head-to-Head: Samsung Galaxy SII Vs. Galaxy SIII


The SII faces the world with a 4.3-inch WVGA display with a maximum resolution of 800 x 400 pixels. On the Retina scale, that calculates to a hair less than 217 ppi; a handsome display in anybody's book. On the other hand, the Galaxy SIII delivers 1,280 x 720 pixels on a 4.8-inch glass; that's a dot pitch that's just shy of 306 and far closer to Apple's iPhone 5 bar of 325 ppi. This is a bright and beautiful display that's super-sensitive to the touch and crisp and clear to the eye. No jaggies here; just smooth lines and lots of "wow" factor.
