The Bottom Line Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. Though we're disappointed that the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G didn't have more improvements over its predecessor, it's still a decent upgrade with the addition of 3G and GPS. Plus, it's quite affordable for an entry-level smartphone. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 makes a great entry-level offering for those already in the BlackBerry camp. Despite its entry-level status, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a decent smartphone for the price.
