The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been crowned the Trusted Reviews Best Smartphone of 2012, with the public vote helping the Android handset see off competition from bitter rival the iPhone 5.
Claiming a dominant 41.7 per cent of the public vote, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has rounded off a strong year with yet another awards success, claiming top honours in the 2012 Trusted Reviews Awards, sponsored by eBay, ahead of Apple’s latest, and long sought-after handset, the Apple iPhone 5 (26.7 per cent).
Further highlighting Samsung’s rise to power in the mobile arena over the past 12 months, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 claimed third place in the reader vote with a 12.4 per cent share.
Released in May 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has become the South Korean manufacturer’s most successful handset to date, having already sold more than 40 million units globally. With a 1.4GHz Cortex A9 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a true dominant force, with the handset’s high-end spec pleasingly available for free on a selection of network deals.
“While many still swear by Apple and the iPhone 5, it’s not surprising the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been voted by the public as the Best Smartphone of 2012 in the Trusted Reviews Awards,” Evan Kypreos, Editor of Trusted Reviews said. “Samsung really upped its game in 2012 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a strong all-round package with a competitive price tag.”
“While Samsung might not have Apple’s flair for high-end design, the Samsung Galaxy S3’s sleek curves have helped create a desirable device, that is more than backed up by the its excellent specification and performance.”
