The Galaxy S3 from Samsung is currently enjoying itself at the top of the smartphone pile at the moment, with rave reviews and huge sales.
The S3’s success is hardly surprising; it is a sleek and sexy device that delivers power on the inside along with panache on the outside.
But the S3’s reign at the top may be coming to an abrupt end soon, at least when it comes to sales. Later this week we are due to get a look at the next-gen iPhone from Apple, a device that looks set to blow all others out of the water.
Apple has been typically tight-lipped over its upcoming device, but if even half the rumours currently surrounding the iPhone 5 come true, we are about to see a very impressive device – even by Apple’s high standards.
The iPhone 5 certainly doesn’t spell disaster for the S3, but Samsung will need to be on top of its game to compete. Luckily, there is a new OS in town.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update
Plenty of Android smartphones are still waiting for an Ice Cream Sandwich update, but it seems that the S3 is gearing up to go one step further.

Leaked screenshots showing a ‘near-perfect’ Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update has started doing the rounds online, prompting speculation of a roll-out in the next couple of weeks.
With a wealth of cool new features, including Android Beam and Google Now, Jelly Bean is a great OS that offers users faster and smoother usability.
Enough to counter the iPhone 5?
Of course, a simple OS update will do little to halt the sales juggernaut that is the next iPhone, but it may at least stop some S3 users jumping ship.
