This phone is very similar. It is like a mini version of the S series. I have had the S2, S4, and now use this phone because the Virgin plan is cheaper than the plans for the higher end phones.

Diffence between Galaxy Ring and Galaxy S3 or S4 ?
This Phone is not a full fledged Galaxy S3 or S4 but it does have allot of the same features.
The major differences between the Galaxy Ring and the Galaxy S3 or S4 or these.
1) The Galaxy Ring has a 4-inch screen display ( the same size as an Apple iPhone 5 ).
The Galaxy S3 and S4 have a 5-inch screen display.
2a) No NFC on the Galaxy Ring
2b) No Burst mode picture taking and only a 5 megapixel rear camera.
3) Galaxy Ring runs Android Jelly Bean version 4.1
Galaxy S3 and S4 run Android Jelly bean version 4.2
4) Galaxy S3 and S4 have a little bit longer battery life.
5) No IR blaster on Galaxy Ring so It can not be used as a remote control for your
TV or Home AV Audio receiver.
6) No Sim card slot on the Galaxy Ring. It uses a Serial Number to activate the phone.
7) Galaxy ring can not be Unlocked to my knowledge. It uses Virgin Mobile CSM Sprint nation wide network. T-Mobile and ATT use GSM on their Nation wide networks. They are not compatible. The Galaxy Ring will only work on the Virgin Mobile service plan.
8) The Galaxy S3 and S4 have Quad core processors. The Galaxy Ring has a single core processor. But the Galaxy Ring works fine for everyday task including watching movies and listening to music, Youtube, Pandora, Netflix etc. All work fine on the Galaxy Ring via Wifi. May run slow via cellular due to your coverage and signal strength.
All these Galaxy phones use the same Android apps, and Samsung Apps. The Galaxy Ring phone also has some Virgin Mobile Apps.
Other than that the Galaxy Ring can do everything the Galaxy S3 and S4 can do. WiFi, Internet, GPS, A-GPS, Sync, Bluetooth, Screen lock, Screen Rotation, 64gb. Micro SD card option, Google Now, Google Voice search, Voice to text messaging, Google Chat, Maps, Sky Maps, Calendar, MS Office 365, Yahoo messenger, Facebook, instagram, etc.
