The debate over Samsung Galaxy S iii or Samsung Galaxy S ii in Kuwait continues. How do I know? Guess who’s been phone shopping? Me. Finally. Before moving to Kuwait I was an iPhone girl all the way. For whatever reason, I switched to Blackberrybecause I thought it was the thing to do in this country. Now, I am ready to branch out and the Galaxy came up in so many conversations that I am seriously considering abandoning my old habits. First I did some research about Samsung whether phones or tabs just to have an idea, I started to review galaxy tab and compare galaxy tab with other tabs out there and I found out that when compared to various tablets, the samsung galaxy tabs were doing just great.
I looked then into phones and I found a lot of versions and types.There is this samsung galaxy wifi that has the latest Android operating system, galaxy samsung white in colour is also available for the same type which is W I8150. I also checked the Gio S5660 and Pocket S5300, both are impressive especially when you check samsung galaxy features or samsung galaxy specs, however; the ones I liked the most were the 5830 samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Sii, and the latest phone from Samsung, the Galaxy Siii. But if I decide to rock a Galaxy is it really necessary to make the leap to the more expensive S3 or will the S2 do the job?
So, both Samsungs use Android software, both are touch-screen, and both offer the Social Hub, the Games Hub, and the Music Hub apps. The S3’s screen is a half an inch-bigger than the S2 but doesn’t use the Super AMOLED technology which is tech-e speak for “more sub-pixels” giving a clearer display. Both of them have 1 GB of RAM and both have a micro-SD slot, but honestly, who would need that if they have 64GB offered from the S3. The only options from S2 are 16GB and 32GB which is still substantial. But if I decide to rock a Galaxy is it really necessary to make the leap to the more expensive S3 or will the S2 do the job?

Okay, the camera is important to me. Both S2 and S3 have an 8 Megapixel Camera except the S3 has so many extras like face/smile detection, touch-focus functionality, and 1080p HD playback. Connectivity isn’t an issue for either phone at speeds up to 21Mbps, 3G/HSDPA and HSPA+ are possible on every band of Wi-Fi. The cool thing about the S3 is by way of its micro USB port it can use MHL to output to a monitor. The only thing left to think about, in my opinion, is how the thing fits in my hand. It seems phones have been moving toward the micro-wave/toaster-oven sizes and are hard to hold. S2 is smaller by all comparisons as it weighs 116g compared to S3 weighing 133g. Also, the S2 measures 125.3 x 66.1 x 8.49mm while the S3 measures 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm.
Deciding will probably come down to what it always comes down to, the balance in my bank account. I have to consider the Samsung Galaxy cost. Though being informed of the differences has heightened my concept of what the extra cash is going towards. There are enough enhancements on the S3 to justify the extra money, but there are some serious changes like the lack of the Super AMOLED technology and the increasing size of the phone that doesn’t interest me. Decisions. Decisions. I just don’t want a Smartphone. I want to be smart about my phone.
