The Samsung Galaxy S3 has finally arrived after months of speculation and anticipation. This new model really is one of the ultimate devices on the market so we thought we would compare it with another impressive phone, the HTC One S. We look around the storage options on both models and also the display technology that is used.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 not only features a screen that eclipses what the HTC One S can offer but one that eclipses just about every other rival device. A very large 4.8 inch screen is perfect for a multitude of uses and it is great to see that quality has not been sacrificed for size. The handset can display a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels which means that when it comes to pixel density the model tops the magical three hundred mark with 306PPI. It is not just the quality of this screen that stands out but also its longevity thanks to the use of Pen Tile AMOLED technology. This style of screen uses a reduced number of blue pixels which often degrade at a faster rate than other colours. Quality is unaffected but the screen delivers optimum performance over a longer period of time. On its own the HTC One S offers a very high quality screen that is superior to many competitors handsets. The use of AMOLED produces great viewing angles and vivid colours while the 960 x 540 resolution helps the 4.3 inch screen to offer great clarity. In terms of pixel density the model can display 256 pixels per inch.
Three different versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 are available, each with a different storage capacity. The basic model offers 16GB while the middle model doubles this to 32GB. Users who want the highest possible storage space for movie content will find the 64GB variety ideal. A micro SD card slot capable of accepting 32GB cards is present on all three devices while a range of cloud storage options can be employed to further increase the total usable capacity. There is only one version of the One S but this does include a respectable 16GB of storage. If this was accompanied by an external card slot then it would be ideal but unfortunately HTC have opted against this so users only have the internal storage capacity available on the handset. HTC have however an agreement with Cloud service provider Dropbox which gives users of the One S a free amount of cloud storage which could prove invaluable for users of this model.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One S are two of the newest phones available but only one model comes out on top in this comparison. The S3 not only offers the better quality screen but also better storage options, even on the most basic model.
