With another addition to Samsung’s Galaxy range it is important to know the differences between the most current handset and its predecessor. So we thought we would show you this table comparing the differences between the very popular Samsung Galaxy S II and the latest handset to joing the Galaxy family, the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Some of the big differences are obvious, the Galaxy S III comes pre-installed with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), has a new and improved larger screen and runs faster. But not everything is different, some of your favourite options within the Samsung TouchWiz experience are still there. This means typography lovers you can still change the standard font to the ever popular Helvetica S.

Some of the highlights we noticed included a new lock screen, an in-built battery saver option, S-Voice and the new Flipboard app pre-installed exclusively for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
