Although we're much more interested in the quality of the actual photographs that you can take with a device, it's also a good thing when that interface that you'll use to take those photos is well-made. In our case here, the GS III is better, as it has its numerous settings positioned in a way that makes them more easily accessible.

The Galaxy S III is also superior in the photo quality department. Its 8MP camera manages to capture more detail, compared to the 5MP one of the Nexus. Interestingly, this happens while noise levels are actually lower with the GS III, which means that it's not simply making things sharper.

When it comes to the 1080p video that you can record with both handsets, the Galaxy S III again has the upper hand, mainly because it produces the more fluid material of the two.

The music player found on the Galaxy S III is a bit fancier than the one of the Nexus, as it offers a bit more additional features, but all in all, the difference isn't really significant.

With a slightly bigger and brighter screen, as well as potentially bigger storage capacity, the Galaxy S III is the more appropriate choice for the mobile multimedia consumer, who watches a lot of video on their handset. However, if you don't have the habit of keeping each and every file safely stored on your phone, then the Nexus won't be too far in that respect.
