Samsung Galaxy S III sample camera photos arrive  - read the full textThe Tinhte post that revealed the Galaxy S III test unit may have been pulled down, but it contained more than just a hands-on video - it also had a few 8MP camera samples. Now, the phone is not a production unit and the lighting conditions are far from perfect, but the EXIF data of the samples is...

I had an N8 and then switched to Android (Galaxy SII), while I'm happy with all the software options you get on the SII, I can say that I miss the N8 quality (build quality and pictures quality) a LOT. Bringing 12MP to the table is not enought, the N8 doesn't get those pictures just because it has 12MP, but because of its SENSOR SIZE, which is very big for a phone, and also has ND filter and very complex algorythms. Not even Samsung 12MP shooter will be able to match it, because Samsung is going to give us a thinner phone. Thin = smaller sensor. MP will just be a marketing bluff. Good quality is posible, but nowhere near the N8. Don't even think PureView.

Or this might be an older prototype of Galaxy S3?

hold press power button for 8 seconds until it vibrates 3 times... it is equivalent with removing the battery..

Wasn't there a news some weeks ago saying there will be finally a physical home button on SGS3?

I don't see one on this GT-I9300.

Judging by the quality of the camera samples, this is not the S3...the photos are almost worse than on my S2...

My friend has an N8 and when it freezes it can't be reboot or turned off. He has to wait until the battery runs dry because there's no removable battery. I don't know what some of the folks here do with there N8. My friend punishes it by downloading torrents and using the internet and that happened a couple of times. And that's why he want to sell it. Now his asking if my Samsung Galaxy S2 also freezes like that, well he have seen it and wanted to buy my phone in case the S3 comes. haha LOL Don't believe what I say just test it for yourself. To see is to believe.

I think that this is definitely a future samsung device but whether it is the device that we will see on 3 May is another thing altogher. I, at least, hope that it is not the device and that Samsung have something much hotter up their sleave

well just seen the video on another website. it seems laggy. considering its a quad core. i would expect a little faster. and the screen is not very responsive judging by the video. so for a samsung flagship. looks a bit slow.

so i will keep my lumia 800. as this seems so faster.
