Top 10 most read: Samsung Galaxy S4 vs S3 review, O2 ends free BT WiFi deal, Microsoft attacks Google

Posted on December 25, 2013 at 9:51 am

With the S4 now in the market for the past a month or so, there’s no doubt numerous owners of the former flagship S3 are wondering if it’s worth their time and money upgrading.

This was why our head-to-head review of the two devices was the most popular content of the past week, as we put the two phones through their paces. The S4 won, as you’d expect, but the S3 still remains a high-end device.

Elsewhere the ongoing war of words between Google and Microsoft over customer wins, and losses, took another turn when Redmond took advantage of the raft of negative comments on our story about Pearson embracing Google services.

Mobile users with O2 received a bit of bad news this week when the company confirmed its deal to access 4,000 or so BT Openzone hotspots was coming to an end, although O2’s own WiFi network, in locations such as McDonalds, is growing all the time.

Elsewhere, our hands-on picture blog of HP’s Moonshot technology also gave V3 readers a chance to see the low-power server technology up close and personal, as the firm used the DataCentres Europe 2013 conference as a chance to tout the technology.
