It’s rare for phones not coming out of Cupertino to reach iPhone level hype. But that’s exactly what Samsung’s Galaxy S III managed to do. It’s not like anticipation wasn’t warranted, either. The Korean company revealed in late February that it had shipped over 20 million Galaxy S II devices worldwide in just ten months — TWENTY MILLION — which then lead to a (supposed) record amount of Galaxy S III pre-orders from carriers and retailers. That’s hype, encapsulated. Not only that, but the Internet just couldn’t get enough of the device; there was an incredible volume of information coming out of the rumor mill leading up to today’s unveil. It’s got quite the competition to go up against, including Apple’s iPhone 4S, which to this day still remains one of the hottest smartphones on the market. So how do these two stack up?
