Well, it’s time to compare these two monsters which rule the market. We won’t spend any time talking about them separately because we have already reviewed them, the Xperia S over here and the Galaxy SIII over here.

We’ll begin with the storage space: Samsung Galaxy SIII

Sony Xperia S has a internal memory of 32 GB without the possibility of adding a microSD card, while the Samsung Galaxy SIII has 16/32/64 GB of internal storage with the possibility of adding a microSD card slot of up to 32 GB. It’s clear that the SIII has more storage capabilities.

Processing power:

Sony Xperia S features a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU with Adreno 220  GPU and 1 GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy SIII features a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU with MALI-400 GPU and the same amount of 1 GB of RAM. Still, quad core vs dual core is a easy battle for the SIII.

Camera:

Sony Xperia S features a 12 MP camera which is capable of capturing still pictures at a resolution of  4000×3000 pixels and capturing 1080p@ 30 FPS videos. It features     Geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, 3D sweep panorama, image stabilization, continuous autofocus, video light, video stabilizer. It also has a secondary 1.3 MP camera which is capable of capturing 720p@30 FPS videos. Sony Xperia S

Samsung Galaxy SIII features a 8 MP camera which is capable of capturing still pictures at a resolution of 3264×2448 pixels and capturing 1080p videos  @ 30 FPS. It features Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization. It also has a secondary 1.9 MP camera which is capable of capturing 720p@30 FPS videos.

It’s clearly that Sony Xperia S has a much better camera than the SIII.

Screen:

Sony Xperia S has a 4.3 inches LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with a pixel density of 342 pixels, while Samsung Galaxy SIII features a 4.8 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution 720 x 1280 pixels  with a pixel density of 306 ppi. Although it has a higher ppi, Xperia S’ screen is of a lower quality than the SIII’s.

Connectivity:

Sony Xperia S: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, EDR, NFC, microUSB v2.0, USB On-the-go support, GPRS/EDGE, 3G ( HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.8 Mbps ), GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, 3.5 mm audio jack.

Samsung Galaxy SIII: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, EDR, NFC, microUSB v2.0 (MHL), USB On-the-go, GPRS/EDGE, 3G ( HSDPA, 21 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps ), GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, microSD card slot of up to 32 GB, 3.5 mm audio jack.

You can see that Samsung’s connectivity is better thanks to better bluetooth, higher 3G speeds, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi direct.

Design and build:

The Xperia S measures 128 x 64 x 10.6 mm and weighs 144 grams while the Galaxy SIII measures 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm and weighs 133 grams. Although it’s larger and has a larger screen, the SIII is much thinner and lighter.

Battery:

Sony Xperia S is powered by a  standard 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery which is capable of providing up to 450 hours of stand-by time and 8 hours and 30 minutes.

Samsung Galaxy SIII is powered by a  standard 2100 mAh Li-Ion battery which is capable of providing up to 790 hours of stand-by time and 21 hours and 40 minutes.

The SIII has almost twice the stand-by time and third times the talk-time of the Xperia S, which is more than impressive.
