Samsung Galaxy S III vs Sony Xperia S

Sony's lineup of Android phones has been picking up pace recently, but now with the Xperia S and its buddies, the P and U, the company is hoping to finally reclaim that title of a leading phone manufacturer. However, for such a thing to happen, Sony's Xperia S will have to win quite a few tough fights ā€“ like the one against the Galaxy S III, which, as we know, is not an opponent to mess with...

ahahhaa what a bias comment. thats not how u compare dude. i dont really like both phones, but s3 specs are better. i have both phones and iphones as well. *It's true that the glossy plastic of the Galaxy S III attracts quite a lot of fingerprints, but it's also true that the Xperia S, especially in its white form, is a handset that gets dirty very easily, so you may often have to take a minute to clean it up. In terms of dimensions, both handsets are pretty much equal. We say that because even though the Xperia S is a bit smaller (after all, it has a smaller screen), it has more of a rectangular shape, whereas the Galaxy S III has rounded corners, which makes it feel more compact than it is.* BIG NONSENSE ahahah! but whatever

Just because i'm an xperia s owner does not mean i'll say volgur comments about Galaxy s3. That also implies with the Galaxy s3 owners. Although right now xperia s has ICS I like the Galaxy s3 better because xperia s battery life is poor and because galaxy s3 has a better user interface via touchWiz Natura UX and that camera UI. Other than that my xperia s is still a king. So no bad comments. Both phones are kings.

well, why the hell u're cursing each other over a smartphone design!!!! honestly, the SGS II is much more better and way stronger than the SGS III. and also to be honest, the Sony Xperia S looks so hot and beautifully and amazingly designed, and so the SGS III but my choice goes to Sony Xperia S because it's more unique while the Samsung keeps working on the same design standars and similarity as well as for the smasung duos, and mini sIII and other that looked the same!! But , the Xperia S has It's unique design amongst all the other Sony Xperia smartphones. :)

I have both the Xperia s and the galaxy s3 and in my experience the Xperia s puts the s3 to shame in almost every way even though it only runs a dual core 1.5 vs the s3 quad core. The design of the Xperia s feels much better the s3 looks and feels plastic and cheep. But at the end of the it comes down to personal prefferance. Do you want a big shiny lump of plastic....or a sleek sophisticated arsenal of android power.
