Samsung's goal for the Samsung Galaxy S III is clear: set in more hands around the world than any other phone.
The electronics giant knows you can't do that without a favorable price tag and handsets on almost every carrier. More importantly, Samsung understands that it can only reach great heights with a smartphone worthy of the hype.
High-flying specs like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE speeds, and a sharp-shooting 8-megapixel camera push the Galaxy S III much of the way up the hill. Its large HD screen and friendly design give it another boost; and unique software features like S Beam and face tagging further separate it from competitors and help earn it a CNET Editors' Choice Award.
Yet, some disappointing features keep the Galaxy S III from clinching the crown. To find out where the Galaxy III soars and struggles, watch the video, see the photos, and read the full Samsung Galaxy S III review for T-Mobile and for AT&T, with more carrier reviews to come.
