For those who have Galaxy S2 and wanted to know the difference between their device with the new one, and for those who are not quite familiar with the difference between S2 and S3’s capabilities, I would like to help you guys compare them.

First of all, Samsung Galaxy series should not be mistaken as a normal smartphone. Samsung Galaxy series is a totally different story. Why? Because it is really amazing phone and should not be taken lightly specially with its monstrous features. It will not earn the title “iPhone killer” and “the genius phone” for nothing.

We will compare the two devices according to their display size, processor specs, phone memory, camera, battery life, durability and their responding extra features. Now let’s start the S2 vs S3 match-up.


Samsung Galaxy S2Samsung Galaxy S3
• 4.3-inch with a 800 x 480 pixels resolution
• Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touch-screen
• 217 ppi pixel density
• 4.6-inch HD with a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution
• Super AMOLED Plus capacitive with TouchWiz screen
• 319 ppi pixel density

It is very clear who the winner is in the Display category. The S3 has a more improved and clearer screen quality. It has a bigger screen size too. Both have Gorilla Glass protection but still, under that, S3 wins the display specs.

Outskirting the RAM which is the same, the one with the better processing power is the Galaxy S3. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the breakthrough smartphones who has a quad-core processing (HTC One X is one).

Memory Storage

For those who are memory storage conscious, and for those who download apps infinitely and use the entire memory space, there is good news for you. The old Galaxy Samsung S2 is available in either 16 or 32GB memory configurations and can be expanded with additional 32GB microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available in 3 memory storage configurations; 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. And there is additional feature that will surprise you; S3 can be expanded for additional 64GB. Twice the Storage! Nice.


Nowadays, there is Facebook Camera and Instagram, so camera quality is now a very important consideration when buying smartphones. Both S3 and S2 have a 8MP rear camera which has autofocus and LED flash. They both have a secondary front camera (1.9MP)which is designed for video calls.


The S2 has a Li-Ion 1650 mAh battery while the S3 has a slim 2250 mAh battery. It is very clear that the S3 has a long battery life-span. For those who use their smartphones for monstrous amount of time, Samsung Galaxy S3 is for you!


We saw the difference between the older Samsung Galaxy S2 and the newer Samsung Galaxy S3. S3 wins hands down, but still S2 still is a good smartphone and it is now cheaper than before. Therefore, the conclusion is, is it worth it to buy the new S3? Yes it is. For those who seek a more powerful smartphone, this is really for you! Just mind the price though.
