The Christmas shopping season is officially underway, and at the top of many wish lists is a new smartphone. Which new smartphone makes it to the top?
The Galaxy S-III is the newest phone from Samsung that got a lot of commercial time when the iPhone 5 was released.
It's a slick Android phone with a larger screen than the iPhone 5, and just as thin. The edges are curved and there's barely any unused space.
It has a lightning fast 1.5 gigahertz dual core processor, so the picture refresh is instant.
A big feature is the one-touch sharing.
Bumping the phone with another s3 automatically shares videos and photos.
The 8 mega pixel camera isn't quite as clear as the iPhone 5 camera, but its slick. The shiny back looks good but it's hard to hold, and because of its large size, trying to tap on icons makes it dangerously hard to keep from dropping.
The Droid Razr HD from Motorola is another superb Android phone.
Also with an 8 mega pixel camera and a clean large screen, protected with Kevlar.
It's slightly smaller than the Galaxy, a 4.3 inch screen. It's also a Verizon only phone - no AT&T or Sprint versions.
The back of the Razr HD isn't as slippery as the G-3. The back is instead smooth, making the Razr much easier to hold onto and tap the icons.
They're both very good phones, but because it's easier to hold, the Razr is better than the G3.
The galaxy S-3 is on sale now for $50 with a new two-year contract.
The Razr is priced at $100.
