CNET Rules: ‘Samsung Galaxy S3 Beats iPhone 5′

CNET made headlines around the tech community this week, deciding that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the first device “to knock the iPhone off its pedestal.

Samsung mocked Apple in an outdoor advertisement in Australia this week, mocking the company’s map app for some potentially dangerous errors. What do you think? Could Samsung climb to the top of the smartphone market in 2013?

Here’s more from CNET: “It took years of iPhone dominance and many months of Android market leadership for a phone with Google’s mobile operating system to knock the iPhone off its pedestal. The Samsung Galaxy S3 won that honor. The GS3 is a truly global phone, available on nearly every carrier, nearly everywhere. Its large, vibrant HD display represents a growing class of phones with broader form factors, and its delicate balance of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a sharp 8-megapixel camera, 4G LTE or HSPA+ support, and an accessible price make the Galaxy S3 a worldwide hero.”
