Samsung Galaxy S III (Galaxy S3) vs Samsung Galaxy S II (Galaxy S2)
For the leading vendors in the world, there is always a flagship product that is known by every Tom and Dick in the industry. A product of that caliber needs careful planning on all stages of its life cycle. The most important thing is to make sure that the product has no visible flaws.
