Camera:

The Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC Rezound sport an 8MP autofocus camera with LED flash. Images that we took outside with the Galaxy S III have neutral colors and good detail, while the Rezound produced over-saturated colors, and both have a tendency to over expose bright areas. For indoor images, the Galaxy S III had less grain and looked more in-focus than ones from the Rezound. The LED Flash is plenty bright on both phones, but the flash images from the Rezound have a bit of a purple hue to them.

For videos, the Rezound and Galaxy S III can record at 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second. It is clear that videos from the Rezound continue with having more saturated colors, but it doesn’t have as much detail as the videos captured by the Galaxy S III.

Between them, we are more pleased with the accurate and neutral colors produced by the Galaxy S III for pictures, and also more detail with videos, than the over saturated colors and less detail from the Rezound.


Multimedia:

The music player on the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC Rezound are equally nice and have similar functionality. The Galaxy S III includes a standard set of earbuds, while the Rezound comes with a set of premium iBeats earbuds, which is to be used with the Beats Audio intergraton. But honestly, both sets of earbuds sound good. Turning on the Beast Audio on the Rezound does give music a nice fullness to it (compared to having it set to off), but there are a ton of preset and manual EQ settings on the Galaxy S III that can accomplish the same thing.

Of course, both phones can play pretty much any video file you can through at it up to 1080p resolution; including H.263/H.264 encoded MP4s and DivX files. Naturally, the 4.8” Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S III is a real treat to watch videos on, but the Rezound looks almost as good at a smaller size.
