Update: Read our hands-on Samsung Galaxy S3 review

Staff at a London branch of a Carphone Warehouse have been urging their customers to wait for the launch of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 instead of upgrading to the iPhone 4s because the Android handset will be 'better'.

A staff member at the store said he’s urged several customers who were looking to upgrade to an iPhone 4s to wait for the release of the upcoming Android handset (otherwise known as the Next Galaxy), as it’s due to ‘arrive shortly’.

He said: “We’re recommending that customers wait for the Samsung Galaxy S3 instead of buying an iPhone 4s because it’s going to be better and will offer consumers greater value for their money.

“The Samsung Galaxy S2 is on par with the current iPhone, so we’re certain that the Galaxy S3 will have better specs and more features.

“We’re not sure what they are yet but it could possibly have a better camera and screen,” the staff member concluded.

We’ve approached the Carphone Warehouse press office for a comment and will update this post as soon as we hear their response.
