5. The Galaxy's 2100mAh battery is huge

The Galaxy S III comes with a 2100mAh battery, making it one of the best power supplies on the market. With the 2100mAh battery, users can expect the device to last over 300 hours on a single charge on standby. Battery life is a major consideration when buying a smartphone. And the Galaxy S III delivers on that.

6. It delivers the best Android software experience

Samsung has found a way to offer up the very best Android software experience out there. The Galaxy S III comes with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), but has Samsung's own interface tossed on it, making it unlike what customers would find in the standard version of the operating system. Samsung's TouchWiz is downright innovative.

7. Gaming is a great experience

Samsung has gone out of its way to ensure that the Galaxy S III comes with ample power for gaming. The device has a powerful quad-core processor and boasts a graphics accelerator to boot. Expect a great gaming experience on the Galaxy S III.

8. Don't forget the apps

Meanwhile, it should be pointed out that Apple tends to get all of the attention when it comes to applications. The company's App Store is bigger than the Google Play marketplace and gets more love in the mobile community because of it. However, a lot of the best apps are running on Android. Therefore, the Galaxy S III doesn't take a back seat to the iPhone when it comes to apps.

9. Scratch-resistant glass is a welcome addition

Since there's really no hard protection for a smartphone's screen, having scratch-resistant glass is a welcome addition in the Galaxy S III. With it, users can cut down on the chances of their phones getting damaged, and thus, reduce chances of being forced to buy another in the event the Galaxy S III gets dinged by some bad scratches.

10. NFC

Near-field communication is the future. The technology allows for handsets to wirelessly communicate with other products to transfer information. In some cases, that can mean credit card information through services like Google Wallet. In other implementations, it can transfer data. Whatever the use, NFC is a top technology, and something that Apple's iPhone currently lacks.
