LG Optimus 4X HD
LG's Tegra 3-based beast, the Optimus 4X HD, sports a 4.7in display with a 720p resolution. Pre-orders are now being taken and while an official roll out date has yet to be established, reports suggest the phone will be out sometime this June.
Motorola Razr Maxx
The Motorola Razr Maxx may only appear with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of Ram, but with a 17.6 hour rated battery life, you'll have ample time to complain to your mates about the wait for an ICS update. Plus, with a Kevlar build and a 4.3in display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, the 9mm-thick device is quite the brawny blower. Tough choice.
Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia's third WinPho 7 is unlikely to set the world on fire, but should keep things ticking over sweetly until Windows 8-based handsets rock up later this year. So for those already converted to Microsoft's tile-design, the Nokia Lumia 900 could be the best on offer, for the time being at least.
Sony Xperia S
Sony has been focused on its solo venture into the smartphone domain lately, with its NXT series of blowers, fronted by the Xperia S, which features a beastly 12Mp camera and 4.3in 720p display. You can read a full review of the Xperia S here on Reg Hardware.
While none of the NXT series yet boast a Tegra 3 processor, a Sony 2012 roadmap, shows the company does have plans to incorporate quad-core innards into an unannounced handset this October. More on that, as and when, though.
Chinese manufacturer ZTE says its first Tegra 3 handset, the Era, is the thinnest quad-core device on the market today, measuring just 7.8mm thick. The Android 4.0 blower wont hit shelves until the second half of the year, but could definitely be one to keep track of.
Ten... alternatives to Samsung's Galaxy S III
How did the Lumia get in there.
It's an alternative to having one's testes sliced off with a rusty Stanley knife, but hardly an alternative to the Galaxy SIII.
Re: Re: 10 alternatives?
Zero light photography... Sounds tricky.
Re: WP7 does seem a bit "Marmite" doesn't it?
Except there are a lot of people who genuinely like Marmite.
WP7 does seem a bit "Marmite" doesn't it?
There are those that hate it, and there are those that seem to be being paid to fluff it at every opportunity (there surely can't be any other reason to love WP7, can there?)
The whole point of the Galaxy releases is that at the date of release there IS no alternative. The review shows only 1 or 2 available devices. And waiting for the next iPhone is moot as usual, since by then there will be at least 10 devices that have progressed beyond. There is always a next iPhone and it is always hardly better than before and iOS is so tiring and dusty already.
