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.
