The Samsung Galaxy S III (GSIII) can be had for as little as $49.99 on contact and matches the RAZR HD and MAXX HD in virtually every department. In fact, the Galaxy S III has more RAM (2GB vs. 1GB), a slightly larger screen (4.8" vs. 4.7") and the same dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor.
If you're a Verizon customer that's in the market right now do yourself a favor and buy the GSIII at a discount. You won't regret it.
(For the record over the next two months the Samsung Galaxy Note II, HTC Droid Incredible X and the LG Optimus G/Nexus are all also being released on Verizon and would warrant a look. For more info on those go here.)
