Can Any one confirm when is the Series 3 hitting the markety of Australia.
I have a confession to make. When I first laid eyes on the Samsung Galaxy S3, I thought the design was unappealing and uninspired. I felt that the styling was a bit dated; akin to a slight upgrade of the Nexus One. From the initial launch invitation which featured marble white and blue blobs, I expected something more raw, more edgy. I was expecting a fusion of liquid metal and styling from Verizon’s iconic Droid campaigns. I was expecting to be impressed, to be blown to pieces with something completely revolutionary. Thankfully, I was invited to the launch event here in Malaysia, and my first impressions have been ripped to tatters. After having had the opportunity to spend some quality hands on time with the Galaxy S3, I have realized that my initial impressions were unfounded. The leaked images of the S3 that appeared in the few days leading up to the S3 launch did not do justice to this amazing piece of technology I hold before me now. Honestly, I am in love. It was love at first touch, and all preconceived notions I had about the S3 design have melted away, and been replaced by pure technological bliss and delight.
"Designed To Make Sense"
Right out of the box, the battery was amazingly thin – thinner than any removable battery I have ever seen or handled. That’s 2100mAh of power that will keep you going for long. Once popped in, the plastic battery cover snapped on easily – something that Samsung has used previously in the S2, Galaxy Nexus and Note. Even with a gigantic4.8” HD Super AMOLED display, the phone feels incredibly light and very comfortable in my hands. Getting the device for the first time, I find myself in a perpetual state of what can only be described as ‘eureka moments’. The whole ‘inspired by nature’ talk began to make sense. It’s a design that works perfectly. Quite simply, the design of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a breath of fresh air in the midst of sharp and edgy ubiquitous mobile design. The Samsung Touchwiz Nature UX is fast and fluid; like the way water ripples with your every touch. This is the most refined version of Touchwiz ever. It is a welcome from the ‘raw and efficient’ versions of homescreens currently on Android. I also commend Samsung for their proper execution of the app drawer. Previously (on the Note), grid view was a mess. However, this time, they included alphabetical grid view, which arranges everything nicely. I wish they gave the same option to the Android 4.0 update to the Note (they didn’t). Going through the ringtone options, the soothing ‘nature’ sounds that are incorporated made me love it more. It’s not just love at first sight, but love at first touch and sound. To be honest, there isn’t anything revolutionary about the hardware. Yes, it does have a 1.4GHz quad core Exynos SoC – which is among the best there is right now. This time though, Samsung actually went above mere raw hardware, and really took their software to the next level. Having used the phone nonstop for the past few days, I can confidently write that Samsung has actually improved on stock Android 4.0 ICS in ways I thought no manufacturer was capable. Spec wise, the device hold its own among the best devices of today, including the HTC One X (both international quad core and its dual core S4 LTE variant), and rips to tatters the best devices of yesteryear, including the S2, the HTC Sensation, and other similarly spec’ed devices. Even though the camera is a ‘measly’ 8MP, it has a new BIS sensor for low light shooting, which really helps to take fantastic shots in low light situations, – with no flash. Apart from these obvious changes, sticking to the 8MP camera makes everything seems quite normal. The amazing, attention grabbing display, all the powerful specs, and the most mature, refined and robust version of Android yet work to create what is arguably the finest performance of any smartphone ever devised.The 1.4GHz quad core Exynos completes any task you throw at it in record time. The result of having the Exynos is extreme fluidity and smoothness, a kind of fluidity that is unparalleled at this point in time. I cannot stress how fast this device is. It’s unlike any device I have ever used – everything occurs instantly. Honestly, i’m speechless. I love everything about the Samsung Galaxy S3. It’s modern, it’s human and it’s closest to being perfect that I think a smartphone could ever be. To see Android having come this far, leaves me in awe. It’s display is the best I have ever witnessed – better than the Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X, iPhone 4S, or that of any mobile device I have ever laid eyes on. Its speed and fluidity of operation are unrivaled, and near instantaneous. Despite its relativley large size, it is remarkably well balanced in the hand, and feels fantastic to the touch. It is, in my opinion, the best Android device – no – the best Smartphone – ever created.
dave, 27 May 2012Lies lies liesS3 is priced at MYR 2199 for 16GB version while Note now selling at MYR 1999, apart from 4 cores processor there is no significant differences between the 2, Note in return offer S pen & bigger screen, both Digi & Celcom only offer white version, you can check out soyacincau website for the pebble blue production problem.
Now which part of "liar" did you see.
theaffidavit, 27 May 2012Design especially exterior design is very important ,
same material doesnt make it beautiful ... morewell said...
bt I wasn't refering to the design bt to the type of material used. he said its cheap plastic. yet it uses polycarbonate just like the HOX. and I doubt he said it because of its looks bt simple because hes ignorant.
grif, 27 May 20121st the samsung gs3 isn't using cheap plastic. just shows how ignorant most of you are. it use... moreDesign especially exterior design is very important ,
same material doesnt make it beautiful , for example , lets say there is like 20 gm of gold each , one piece is in form of a ring and other one is a block , even though both are gold and same quality , u cannot use block of gold for anything , but if its a ring u can wear it...........
that is called "usability" of a product , ask any designer especially graphic designers or even refer to books like presentation zen , importance of design is very important , especially considering an average consumer in mind.
"people tend to use a product which is more beautiful , greater the beauty of product , the great it attracts/gets attention of a user".
Same goes with beats , because HTC marketed it , a consumer thinks other phones are waste but he doesnt know truth that s3 has better audio.
It all depends on mindset , Just ask someone to use a windows phone and an android phone and ask them "which phone has better processor" , they say "windows phone" because it runs smooth and fast with transition effects , and live tiles keep changing , so "he" thinks that windows running so smooth with all effects tricking into fact that windows phones have better cpu but what is truth ? we all know , android has better hardware , even u give him right answer , millions of consumers are there without "geek"/"tech" knowledge , thats why apple products sell millions and even more than any company in the world.
Most of them dont read reviews , do research , comparisons , they just go to a store and try it , they buy it if they like it , its that simple.
[deleted post]Which I suppose is the message that Samsung is telling all their smoking customers - so please, add more comments like yours, and show Samsung your support in their decision
The phone will be available on T-mobile & Videotron ( Quebec, Canada ). Don't know exactly if they will lauch in the same time of bell and the other, but I can confirm both CIE will get the phone !
UH-OH, looks like Samsung has just decided to punish their employees who smoke! The decision made is to prevent smokers in their company from getting promoted, well that's fine Samsung, show all the smokers in the world the big finger! Don't worry, all your customers who smoke are gonna stay faithful and never switch brands, uh-uh.
Keep up those bigotry and discrimination policies Samsung, look for more ways to punish those people who buy a legal product - waaaay to go! Do the fatties next! I notice Nokia has no such policy within their company - shame on Nokia.
Arif sheikh, 27 May 2012These iphone usres are frogs who did not even know other world then iphone plz check this cimi... moreThis phone looks amazing.
