The Samsung Galaxy S III is the successor to the popular Galaxy S II Android smartphone and is upgraded in almost every way from its predecessor. It features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Description

The HTC One S is an ultra-thin (7.95mm) Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, coming exclusively to T-mobile in the US. The One S features a aluminum unibody construction, is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, and features a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display. HTC has put a new version of its Sense skin 4.0 on top of Google's operating system, and also added Beats Audio integration.

The Lumia 710 is one of Nokia's first two Windows Phone devices. The 710 is the cheaper of the two, though it shares the same processor and RAM as the nicer Lumia 800. This smartphone also features a 3.7-inch capacitive LCD touchscreen and multiple removable backs that offer customization options.
