We're seeing more and more high-end smartphones enter the market, and keeping up with all of them is nothing short of overwhelming. How will you decide which one will be your next handset? Here’s how popular beasts like the Galaxy S III stack up against upcoming options like the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920.

Six months ago the Galaxy Nexus (i9250) replaced the iPhone 4 as my full-time, carry everywhere phone; for reasons that I'll save for another time. My wife also jumped over to the Galaxy S II (i9100), and like you, we've been waiting for the GSIII (i9300) for a while now. It's deservedly one of the most anticipated phones of the year, but is it the best so far?
Well, this is flat out amazing. Most waterproof cases for phones are bulky monstrosities that make it really difficult to use the device it's protecting. Not the Case Marine. At just 0.25mm thick, you can actually use it with another case on top.
Samsung's launching the Galaxy S III this week in London -- or if it isn't, it's going to be looking at a lot of exceedingly annoyed Samsung fans the world over.
Possibly the worst kept secret in all of smartphone-dom is out of the bag, as Telstra's just launched its page for the 4G version of the Galaxy S II.
We've seen the 'official' Galaxy S II ROM leak, and now it looks like the wait for those who don't want to go down unofficial routes may not be too much longer, with Vodafone Australia confirming that it's got the Android 4.0 code for the Galaxy S II from Samsung.
Late last year, Samsung said that it would be rolling out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to its Galaxy devices in the "first quarter" of 2012, starting with the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note. A version of the official ICS ROM was leaked for the SGSII earlier this month, and now a more recent build appears to have hit forums.
Well yes, and no. These photos sent to Giz from an anonymous Telstra Shop employee certainly seem to back up this morning's evidence of an incoming 4G-capable GS2. The catch? It’s an in-store dummy model -- until, our tipster claims -- it launches on or around the 28th alongside the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab 8.9 with 4G, Nokia Lumia 810 and Telstra’s 4G Prepaid USB modem. Fingers crossed.
Hey, that headline rhymes! Well, sort of. Sadly, that's the only good news for those hanging out for a successor to the wildly popular Galaxy S II, as Samsung has confirmed it won't be unveiling a successor at Mobile World Congress.
So the GS2 won both the Readers' Choice and Editor's Pick in the 2011 Gizmodo Awards -- but how does it stack up as a GPS replacement for the car? Giz reader Jason takes it for a test drive.
Vodafone just can't seem to catch a break. If it's not an ongoing campaign against the quality of their network, it's the fact that the GPS functionality seems to be playing up on one of the best Android phones on the market, the Samsung Galaxy S II.
