Since networks and browsing speeds are a key feature of any smartphone, we also conducted some formal speed tests to see how well the Samsung Galaxy S III compared to some of today's hottest smartphones using the app and Rightware's BrowserMark benchmark.

Network Speeds

The Galaxy S III supports LTE connectivity, where it's available through your carrier. Unfortunately, our test area didn't have LTE coverage through AT&T or Sprint, so we were unable to test the 4G LTE capabilities of these phones. When looking at the score, you can see that the Galaxy S III performed very well using AT&T's HSPA+ network but you can expect to see dramatically faster speeds both upstream and down over LTE connectivity.

The Rightware BrowserMark benchmark evaluates the web browsing and browser performance of a device. In this test, you can see that the Galaxy S III performed exceptionally well, earning the top score by a decent margin.
