Infographic: The evolution of Samsung's Galaxy flagships

Samsung’s phones are arguably the most recognisable of any running the Android OS. Bearing the ‘Galaxy’ moniker, the phones have one of the best brand images built up, perhaps falling second only to devices from Cupertino, California.

The Galaxy SIII has been a resounding success during its lifespan, but it wasn’t a sudden new competitor: it was the progression of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S models, and its time in the limelight is coming to an end due to the announcement of the Galaxy S4.

While some may argue that the ‘Galaxy’ naming has been run into the ground by millions of low-end devices, the same complaint has never been leveled at the Galaxy S models. That one little letter makes all the difference.

Our friends at TopTienMobiel in The Netherlands have put together this infographic that we thought was pretty cool. Take a gander at how the Galaxy S name has been evolving since 2010 below.

For you, yes. I know a lot of people who would argue and say 4 inches is better or 5 inches is better. The good thing is, with Android you have choice.

I happen to think 4.7 is the sweet spot for me.

Nice one narrow it down to a few handsets. Now respond to the the right statement. Facepalm.

The statement is "The good thing is, with Android you have choice." You can't find any Android that has those sizes?

If there's one thing in this world that absolutely, 100%, cannot be represented in the form of a pie chart, it's phone specs.

How does "Android 2.1" take more of the pie than "5MP Autofocus camera"?!

You realize of course that Apple never invented anything? Touch screens, Rectangles, PC's, Laptops, Tablets, Smart Phones with touch, all existed before Apple copied them. Apples only claim to fame is that they make things prettier. I mean they didnt even build OSX from the ground up like MS did with Windows, but instead stole some BSD and beautified it. Give me a break.

well, basically it's correct. I had the S2 when the S3 came out and I did really not feel the need to upgrade. Plus, it was way uglier/had less personality. Same with the S4, well maybe the only nice thing it's the screen, an AMOLED with FHD res with no PenTile, but apart from that, nothing that new smartphone haven't already shown (touch screen with gloves, QI wireless charging, etc.. will have also a worse camera - No OIS, tiny pixels).. ofc it will sell like crazy, it's just not the smartphone for me.

There's something missing in the S4 for me. I'm not sure what exactly but something is..

Sure the specs are all good and that but still leaves this "meh" feeling.

Big deal. Not one user will notice the difference.

Proof/link? Every site I have read has not confirmed this. They all say it depends on the carrier.

Really? You don't go on much sites then. Every site I've been on have said the U.S. is getting the Quad core version because of the way LTE works.

LTE doesn't work with Exynos and works great on Snapdragon.

I thought every real tech site knew this information? This has been common knowledge for quite a bit.
