mhair khan, 06 May 2012the DESIGN is very poor .... Looks a like toy phone....but paked with awesome feturess....like... moreI dont think that s3 is ugly....It is beautiful..I love it..Check some beautiful pics here.
This phone has an acceptable design, however it should have been made from metal rather than plastic.
Only things I hate about this phone is that it's screen is PenTile, and phone itself it huge and uncomfortable. Samsung says the size is almost the same as with Galaxy S2. It is clearly false, HTC One X has even smaller dimensions and is more comfortable, needless to mention, it has better build quality.
What about the music & sound quality is it much better than my s2????
EdB, 05 May 2012Great specs. What's to be expected. ...but, my God, it looks cheap. What happened to the textu... moreThe phone is great!!! there's nothing missing. For me it have all the tools that people may want on their cellphones!!!
Oh sammy fanboys truth always bitters. How much loud u cry this is all samsung can provide you. Flagsheeeeeep LOL...Actually the teaser meant themselves
Anonymous, 06 May 2012i think this phone has a better software than my Xperia S, but this phone are Ugly, Low camera... moreYour Xperia S takes a lot worse grainier, noisier photos than Galaxy S II. I could even expand Galaxy S II photos from 8MP to 12MP, and they would look better. Needless to mention, Galaxy S III has even better camera sensor than Galaxy S II. So, GTFO troll.
finding it hard to get as excited about it as the rest of you, its just another android handset, ill get excited when somebody does something a little bit different, all phones are boring just now, the only difference between them all is the name on the back.....nuff said
Anonymous, 06 May 2012You so wrong, you can compare SG3 to Xperia S. Only main different is the quadcore CPU nothin... moreXperia s camera not good for 12mp! Look at iphones 8mp camera - a lot better! Nokias 12mp good! Xperia s not expandable memory either! S3 getting 64gb version and with micro sd thats 96gb memory! How on earth can xperia s be compared to this? Also some xperia s screens are all yellowish - cheap and nasty!
XCROSSYX, 06 May 2012It could have 50 mp cam a Tera of memory and 7 core processor and I still wouldn't buy it beco... moreYou probably do not know XDA developer forums, where some devs make it possible to change UI. I remember there were mods to put Sense on Galaxy S2.
Anonymous, 05 May 2012NOPE. the first phone with comes out with shooting photo while you shooting a video it's GALAX... morei think the Samsung Wave s8500 is the first phone with option, shoot photo while looking video...correct me if im wrong
Comparing SGS3 and iphone4s price and build quality.
Price is just for example only.
- build quality = USD 399
- iOs & performances = USD 1
sell for USD400
- Build quality = USD 1
- android & performances = USD 400
Now you want great build quality on SGS3
- Metal + super glass build = USD400
- Android + Samsung super performances = USD400
TOTAL PRICE FOR SGS3 WILL BE USD800!!!!
It has 8.4k likes on Facebook from GSMArena..This is huge in just a couple of days so interest is extremly high in fact its all the tech sites are talking about.
There are umpteen types of plastic and does not bother me one bit,never has..It does mean it gives the radio signals the best chance they can to do their job boosting battery life.All metal would also increase the weight and people always vote for slim lightweight smartfones..I prefer a thicker mobile it fits better in hands,is more comfortable and you can get a bigger battery in.
Samsung did listen to its customers and getting a 2100mA removeable battery in that size phone and card slot is what folk wanted.
This cheap plastic body and ugly design phone will be sold in millions.I don't say that,popularity says.Hardware is superb but in my opinion as this is high end phone the design must be superb.I know why Samsung do so.Because they have to sell Samsung galaxy s3 and galaxy note equally.I will not buy this cheap plastic phone.I will wait for Samsung galaxy note2 having s3 hardware.Hope the notes build quality be better.
m86k, 06 May 2012True, people hate TouchWiz mostly based on ignorance / rumors, not because they have used / le... moreFor me its adds samsungs own music player and concert hall setting which is abscent in the Nexus line up due to pure Android.
That pull down menu on TouchWiz is superb your right and the little unknown tricks you mention..Their is also where you alter brightness within apps as well and sure some other good options..I dont have any Android fone ATM have sold the lot for SGS3 ..I am using my N8 till end of May..
Bev, 06 May 2012Does anyone know what the battery life is like? or even on the galaxy sII?Samsung say it lasts 13 hours
james79, 06 May 2012You can definitely compare xperia s to s2 but not s3! Im no sammy lover but stop ranting about... moreYou so wrong, you can compare SG3 to Xperia S.
Only main different is the quadcore CPU nothing more.
And no one will notice the differense between the SG3 and Xperia S in real time ib daily use.
Second, the Xperia is 200,- Euro cheaper:
i feel same kind of rounded shape makes samsung is loosing d spot.
they really need to change d way the think
look at sony
htc intel and vertue
d classy n ever status symbol kind of phones is really required.
then must think in future
