Galaxy S III

Release date: May 29

This is one of the Samsung smartphones Apple tried to get banned in the U.S., but failed to do. Sporting an enormous 4.8-inch screen, quad-core processor, and running Android 4.0 (AKA Ice Cream Sandwich), the Galaxy S III quickly rose in sales. (Samsung claims to have sold 20 million of them worldwide at this point.) A contributing factor was its aggressive launch schedule throughout the world that started at the end of May, and availability on approximately 300 mobile carriers. (In the U.S., this phone is available on all four major carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon.) This ubiquity made the Galaxy S III the Android phone to have in 2012.
