Samsung Galaxy S3
It may be last year's model, but Samsung's Galaxy S3 still has a lot of life in it yet. And at half off what it cost even a few months ago ($99 on-contract, down from $199), the GS3 still packs in powerful hardware, like a speedy dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and a large, lovely screen.
- Overall score: 8.7 (4.0 stars)

The good: The Samsung Galaxy S3 comes fully loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE/HSPA+ 42 capability, a zippy dual-core processor, and a strong 8-megapixel camera. S Beam is an excellent software enhancement, and the handset's price is right.
The bad: The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed.
The bottom line: Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
