Having trouble choosing between 2012’s Phone of the Year candidate Samsung Galaxy S3 and the shape-shifting Asus Padfone?

Check out the quick comparison video below to see how the two smartphones stack up against each other. To make things even more interesting, we’ve also thrown last year’s best-selling Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 into the mix, so make that a three-way visual comparison.

The red hot Samsung Galaxy S3 is the more attractive offering compared to the two. But for those who like the idea of a device within a device (within a device), the Asus Padfone should make for one worthy purchase. The complete package of the Padfone will cost you roughly $900. Aside from the handset, you will get a tablet shell and a nifty laptop docking station. In case you missed our exclusive report, the Asus Padfone is apparently heading to AT&T. As for the Samsung Galaxy S3, the unlocked international version is going for about $700.
