Why comparing same product from same company? It is just to see the change in value of the upgrade and to see the reason why not to override the predecessor product.
Sure, the Samsung Galaxy SIII is an upgrade over the Galaxy S II predecessor, both device runs on Android operating system, the latter built on but not the latest version of the OS. Both Galaxy are milestones of Samsung’s smartphone products.
Comparing products like this isn’t easy, but one had to be calm and natural about the matter of upgrade and most importantly, Price.
The real fact is that the Samsung Galaxy S III is confident of a big HD screen and doubles the CPU cores of its processor.
The aim of this article is to compare the differences between the two generations and find out whether the is worth paying for.
Practically, the Galaxy S III clearly defeats the S II but that does not mean that it is the right Galaxy to reach for its stars.

- 720p bigger screen
- More uniform thickness but not slimmer
- Quad core processor, faster graphics
- 50GB Dropbox, S Voice, S Beam, Smart alarm etc.

Looking at all these, the price makes the S II a device that is worthwhile, it has gotten old, but it’s still a grand device. On the S II is a developer community which may allow it to upgrade to Android 5.0 JellyBean except Samsung decides to do that officially.
Nevertheless, if you are the big Android freak, Samsung has placed the SIII is the Android king of the moment and the handset has got a lot of interesting accessories (wireless charging, pebble, Allshare Cast, S voice,) locked on the Jelly Bean update.
The screen of the SIII is bigger and better, the S II comes with a 4.3″, later grew to (4.5″- 4.65″), while the S II went to play straight like the big boys with 4.8″ screen.
The Galaxy S III is 11.3mm taller and 4.5mm wider than the junior Galaxy S II.
S III is reasonably thicker – 8.6mm than the 8.5 in the S II, the thickness is evenly spread unlike in the Galaxy S II that has a hump around the lower back of the camera.
The Galaxy S III comes with the replaceable battery and microSD card slot that can be used to expand the memory capacity. There is a provided slot for micro SIM incase an upgrade comes, the microSD is now away from the battery, make it easy to swap.
The battery packed with the S III is impressive, not big like that of Motorola RAZR MAXX, but big anyway. It has a 2, 100mAh Li-Ion power pack, 450mAh stronger than that of the S II. 10 hours 20 min for 3G talk time, equivalent to 8 hours 35 min for S II running ICS.
