A number of different smartphone reports are posted every quarter, but one of the most influential of them definitely have to be the ones by Consumer Reports. They’ve called the Galaxy S4 a “top-notch” smartphone, adding that the device is now their top rated mobile device. It clinches the spot from LG Optimus G, which has held it for several months.
Consumer Reports says that the S4 delivered top-notch performance in most critical areas of their tests, citing its various impressive specs such as the full HD 1080p 5 inch display and plethora of sensors. The S4 has also been called a “true-multitasker” as it lets users run two apps side by side in split-screen view. It has also been termed as a great device for couch potatoes, because HDTVs and set-top boxes can be controlled through it, apart from the fact that it can display program details and local listings. With the Galaxy S4 already on track to sell 10 million units by the end of May, its definitely hard to not admit that Galaxy S4 is indeed a top notch smartphone.

While the world goes absolutely bananas over the Samsung Galaxy S4, there are people out there who don’t need the latest and greatest and would much rather get their hands on the Galaxy S3 for a discounted price. There are a wide variety of carriers customers can pick up the Galaxy S3, but Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile customers have yet to get their hands on the Android device. That is – until today.
Both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile are announcing they will be adding the Samsung Galaxy S3 to their lineup of smartphones they’ll provide to their customers starting in June. The Galaxy S3 will operate on Sprint’s 3G and 4G LTE networks, with 4G LTE available to a total of 88 U.S. markets. At this point, no official pricing or availability has been announced, but both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will make their announcements at a later date.
In case you need a refresher of what the Galaxy S3 offers, it has a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an 8MP rear-facing camera, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and dual mode 3G / 4G LTE. You’ll also be able to use S Beam, which allows you to share photos, documents and videos with other S Beam-enabled devices.
