Thanks for the extremely well-written review. Two thumbs up for GSMArena!
There is one thing I couldn't help noticing though. You didn't mention the sound quality of the video recordings. I downloaded the untouched video samples and the sound quality of those samples is poor. Could it perhaps be due to the unit being a pre-production one? Otherwise, I can't see why you didn't discuss the matter in the review.
very impressed by ics on the i9300 sgs3,rom & ram Exynos 4212 Quad,top dollar,3264x2448 pixels, verbatum A2DP on bluetooth is exceptional. i may buy my second wife this. awesome dudes!!
Cannot wait to get this phone in white - find it looks good to me and as the reviews have stated smooth and snappy and confirmed I have made the right choice in the S3.
Having owned a HTC I found the older versions of sense to be laggy and often used other launchers which are much snappier and quicker. I saw the HOX in CPW and sense does work quite smoothly but I still prefer the Touch Wiz on the S3. This is more like stock ICS and not heavily configured like in S2, which is why I can't understand why it is being slated by users here. Have they even used this version of Touch Wiz!?
Am waiting you now gs3. Im ready to buy hope you come asap in kuwait.
AnonD-8685, 21 May 2012So you've tried and tested the new Touchwiz on the SG3?i have seen it in and still dont like it and for me HTC sense & SONY is much better
I don't believe this. Where is 808? Nokia is really becoming a crappy company. SIII is already out. Great review gsma. Just one question, how does smart stay fare in challenging light, indoors, night parties etc? And here's hoping that you will show the same dedication in the 808 review when it hits your offices:)
Anonymous, 21 May 2012Lol. Please. Give us one thing better. And design is opinion but you can say that if its all y... moreUI for start,, Touchwiz is really poor UI HTC Sense is way much better and SONY too plus the design is crappy... long story short i dont like it and thats my opinion
For me the HTC XL for Australia as it has LTE that will work in Australia and Europe.
AnonD-6860, 21 May 2012htc one s , x is loooot betterLol. Please. Give us one thing better. And design is opinion but you can say that if its all you can up with. Prefer what you like though. Just don't lie.
