Samsung Galaxy S3 vs HTC Droid Incredible 4 G LTE: Battle of the Powerful Android Biggies

The new Samsung Galaxy S3 packs a number of special features, like Smart Stay, Direct Call, Smart Alert, Social Tag and S Voice. The Smart Stay feature allows the phone to stay awake when it senses a user is looking at it. The Direct Call feature seems to be quite interesting - if the user is reading a message and would like to talk to the sender, he/she need only lift the phone to his/her ear and the Galaxy S3 will dial the number automatically. Finally, the phone also features Near Field Communication technology (NFC), which can be used to share the content by just tapping the devices together.

On the other hand, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is Verizon's latest Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich ICS)) smartphone and the third member of HTC Droid Incredible family comes with built-in Beats Audio.
