Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones has proven to be one of the biggest iPhone contenders on the market, and the newly launched Galaxy S III looks to be no exception.

Unveiled in May, the third-generation Galaxy phone is the fastest and most advanced yet, sporting Samsung’s newest Exynos quad-core processor and reaching speeds up to 1.4 GHz. It touts Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and a 4.8-inch display, making it slightly larger than its predecessors.

But what really sets the Galaxy S III apart from the younger siblings is a slew of new features that make it more human-like than ever, and a rival to the iPhone. Users can leverage a new feature called "S Voice" to verbally command the Galaxy S III to make phone calls, check the weather and various other tasks hands-free, similar to the iPhone’s Siri. Another new feature, called "Smart Stay," can detect the presence of a Galaxy user through a front-facing camera to gauge whether it should keep the phone’s screen lit up or power down to conserve energy.
