Have been using this Fantastic device since last 2 weeks.. and it's really good.. the power of quad core does show up while playing games or doing multi tasking..no laggin anywhere whtsoever as u see on most of the android phones...
Cam is awesome..low light pics are clear...
Screen is very bright and very clear even under the sun absolutly love it..
this is my first samsung phne and must say tht indeed a very good expeience till now.
yes the plastic is kinda cheap for the ppl who doesn't own it...but for me its really fine.. no prbs wht so ever..
phne is very light..really good to hold to...
battry backup is awesome till now.. well its a new phne so cant comment on it..as of nw but i cn go 2 days without chargin and with sme calls and games and wifi/mobile network.. so it works for me...
White one is better and i think SIII is way better then oneX.

The S3 is so smart that it knows which network to choose to save power.

> In reply to chintubaruah @ 2012-06-29 22:28 from U@9U - click to readOn S3 you have 11.35 Gb of memory to install apps, no 2 Gb as it is on S2, and Gameloft... gamedata... is also installed on the same 11.35 Gb memory, used as a "sd-card" by apps and games...!
If S3 is rooted you can use "gl to sd" to move gamedata... to the external sd-card, but only if that external sd-card is fat32, NOT exFAT!

Open the Messaging app and press the (left soft) menu button. Select Settings and scroll right down to the bottom of the menu that appears. Under 'Notification settings' make sure that the option 'Notifications' box is ticked and that the ringtone is NOT on silent.

Also, on your Homescreen, press the menu button, then Settings/Sound/Volume and make sure that the Notifications slider is on maximum.

You should be in a well lit area and there should be no bright light behind you otherwise your face will not be visible clearly. The phone also needs to be in front of you and not at high angles to the left or right of you.

The Direct call feature works perfectly for me, so you may wanna check that at the service centre.

I'm a bit disappointed in the S3(specially considering it's super high cost). It lags quite a bit which I definitely did not expect from a quad core powered phone. The ripple effect in the lock screen lags most of the time while unlocking(How could you not see it Samsung?). If you pinch zoom in the apps or widgets pages there is a slight lag sometimes. There wasn't the slightest lag in my S2(though it was a dual core). The lag that was there in Messages in the S2 is still there in the S3 too. Even scrolling through Watsapp messages lags like hell on the S3 and it was way smoother on the S2. Ram usage is always above 500mb out of the available 780mb even with no apps running. I checked my friend's S3 too and saw all the above issues in that too which confirms that my phone has no defect. I kind of felt like I went for a downgrade(performance wise) rather than an upgrade. :-(

You should all note the recent court case in Australia referring to how they used the total recording of personal usage with an iPhone to arrest a suspect. Even when you charge your mobile. Worse is Android where your every action is recorded and marketed to all by Google. This is serious where your personal behavior is sold to marketing agents and who ever. Me - I will continue to use a BB and hopefully if is more secure than any other mobile. For these great Samsung products, and they are good, everyone should be totally aware you are selling your soul when you buy and no one pays you a cent for it.

Which phone will you buy? The Galaxy SIII or The HTC One X?

On one hand you have with the SIII:
1. Bigger screen - 4.8" over 4.7"
2. Higher display contrast and better sunlight legibility
3. More storage options - 16/32/64GB + microSD over non-expandable 32GB
4. S Voice natural language commands and dictation
5. S Beam for easy and fast file transfers
6. User-accessible 2100mAh battery over non-removable 1800mAh battery


With the HTC One X
1. Impressive polycarbonate unibody
2. Brighter IPS LCD2 screen with a full set of subpixels
3. Beats Audio

You wont be wrong in thinking that the Galaxy SIII has a slight edge over the HTC One X? But which phone will you eventually purchase?

It's an easy one? - The HTC One x (Hands down)
Even though the features on this phone are second best. yet the feeling of this phone in your hand is out of this world.
The Build quality is very high.
This is a stunningly beautiful phone- Even though it's got a 4.7" screen. the phone doesn't feel out of place in your hand (unlike the Galaxy SIII) - HTC has done a marevlous job?

You would wonder why HTC wouldn't go for the 12Mega Pixel (Available on HTC HD) or the 2100mAH battery - The answer is simple, HTC didn't want the phone to look bulky. This is an A-listers phone - One you could carry in your hand and not look foolish?

Which one would you buy?
