After all the hype around the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 it was perhaps not surprising that our in-depth review of the device was the most popular article of the last week, as eager fans clamoured to see if it lived up to expectations.
Certainly we at V3 were impressed, with the quad-core processor technology, a bright and vibrant display and the best camera seen on any Samsung smartphone to date all massive ticks, although a slightly cheap feel case stopped it achieving a hallowed five-star review.
Elsewhere, though, it was more security concerns dominated reader interest, starting with the revelations that LinkedIn had some 6.5 million passwords stolen by hackers. This also made our quick guide to password protection eagerly popular, as readers concerned by the events looked to improve the security of their other online accounts.
In other news, CERN’s admission that the faster-than-light neutrino results first observed last year were definitely erroneous was also popular, and no doubt a relief, with many readers.
