dave, 21 May 2012Yeah cause the One X did everything amazing. No micro SD slot and poor battery life.Tha battery life is far from poor, it is actually quite good, and will get you through a whole day. (as if the SGS3 will be any better in real life, on cahrger at 11PM, off charger at 8AM.. same same.. and I said HTC ONE X does everything well, instead of somethings great and somethings poor.. I think 32GB memory installed is actually very good. (and so HTC is doing memory quiet well.)

Google is pulling strings to see how high we will jump in the market to buy a product that does not add any additional functionality to our lives. Samsung is great at manufacturing products in a timely manner, but there is a limit to just what the market will absorb with limited advances in software. Android will go backwards if it cannot maintain its relevance. Trying to be something for everyone is a mistake, as shown by bloatware and limited upgrade path. Everything you do Google is watching, your mobile that is.
AnonD-54416, 22 May 2012go to phone arena website and read the article on SGS3 uses polycarbonate, not plastic
you got to be kidding me.
It was stated clearly during the Samsung Galaxy S3 was unvield. They say it clearly that it uses hyperglaze plastic. And it is not polycarbonate

Must admit I am kind of disappointed. Read entire review and couldn't find one thing to draw me towards this phone. It got killer HW specs but, no one needs quad core CPU in a phone, or 1GB of RAM, and synthetic benchmarks are exactly that. Useless synthetic benchmarks. Difference in speed in everyday use between Xperia S and One X is minimal at best. Google should work on optimizing OS so it would run flawlessly on 1GHz single core and 256-512MB RAM. That would allow OEM-s to lower the price and increase sales of their phones. Regarding SenseUI vs TouchWiz debate, they both look bloated and way too shiny and flashy, like they are made for 16 years old girl. Vanilla Android on Galaxy Nexus looks way better and cleaner (IMO). Also omission of two-stage camera key is gigantic deal-breaker for lot of people (me included), and lowers camera functionality a lot.

If you don't like it, don't buy it BUT there are millions of us who do and will buy it. Your nonsense is not going to make any difference to the hot sales numbers.
As usual, Samsung wins on the technical aspects of phones but loses in real life. Note that Samsung has the SECOND WORST (only "beating" RIM) customer satisfaction out of every phonemaker.
This time next week i will have this masterpiece in my hand ....samsung is the king..
Please make an in depth screen comparision between the one x and s3. i would really like to compare both side to side in high res photos.
According to Samsung the "plastic" on S3 is actually polycarbonate! "Polycarbonate is used on the battery cover. Polycarbonate is lightweight, solid and is already being widely used in the mobile industry. It was chosen as the best material to represent the minimal organic design of GALAXY S III. Using three layers of high quality, pure and clear polycarbonate, not only is the phone’s aesthetic elevated, but the durability and scratch resistance is maximized."
It is a perfect phone spec and feature wise but the design ruined everything. the thin bezel makes it look ugly and the home button is so weird. I am sure most of us would sacrifice display size for better looks and proper handling. Who needs more than 4.5 inches anyway?
Anonymous, 21 May 2012UI for start,, Touchwiz is really poor UI HTC Sense is way much better and SONY too plus the d... moreTrust me, Sense isn't that great. I have an Evo and the new TW looks a lot nicer and has more features.
Samsung better sort the Ice Cream software on this phone,because they offered the update for the S2 an now Sky-Go will not work on it,because Samsung forgot to tell Sky about the Update so still not able to work on the S2,an also the Music effects on the S2 will not function right now like the use to,just wished this phone had a 12 mega-pixel camera on it,as alot of people will stay Loyal to the S2 with the Economy struggling,Nokia 808 will have the Best Camera on it,but will people give Symbian another go because of the Superb Camera if its cheaper than the S3
somehow after reading this review, ive come to the conclusion that the galaxy note offers much more bang for buck, the only point not in its favor being the huge size which means it wont fit in your pocket, in all the benchmarks as well as display/sound it comes out near the top and considering that s3 might be priced the same or higher than the note...
Hi, I would like to ask the GSMArena.com team, if they can tell me how is the headset of samsung galaxy s3 (the white one) called and more specificly what is the model of this headset?
