We compare the specs - and other features - of the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One

No manufacturer was more responsible for Android’s rise than HTC. In 2010, the Taiwanese company was king of the hill, releasing the first Nexus device (the weak-selling Nexus One), and the first 4G phone (the hot-selling EVO 4G). Fast-forward to today, though, and Samsung has cleaned HTC’s clock. Does its new handset, the HTC One, provide hope for a comeback? Read on, as we compare its specs – and other features – to the Samsung Galaxy S III.  Read More

We compare the specs (and intangibles) of the BlackBerry Z10 and Samsung Galaxy S3

Great companies evolve. In 2007, Apple redefined the smartphone with the release of the iPhone. Google then responded quickly with the iPhone-inspired Android OS.

Does the new BlackBerry Z10 stand a chance against Samsung’s record-breaking Galaxy S III? Let’s see how their specs – and harder-to-define intangibles – compare.  Read More

How does Motorola's latest stand up to Samsung's leading Galaxy S3?

After reviving the Razr brand last year from a flip-phone graveyard, Motorola has tweaked its formula with two proper sequels. The Razr HD and Razr HD Maxx (accompanied by the Droid moniker in the U.S.) aren't exactly true to their names, as they're both beefier than their predecessors. How do these more balanced handsets stack up next to Samsung's Android-leading Galaxy S III?  Read More

In 2012, however, the biggest tech rivalry is the match between the two biggest players in mobile: Apple and Samsung. This one has gotten nasty, extending into international courts. Things only get more interesting with the release of Apple's iPhone 5.  Read More
