Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012Noticed that GSMArena placed all-plastic body among the "cons".
Please stop givin... morei agree,
plastic is common material and one of best option in today's gadgets.
it's even used in military and spacecraft.
those who said that plastic are bad are obviously never had their hands in the high quality plastics.
or maybe they were brainwashed by those misleading ads.
oh btw, gorilla glass is actually a plastic, not glass at all.
I think it will be priced between s3 and s3 mini . S3 mini with its crap Nova Thor is expensive. Damn Samsung mobiles are always good but overpriced.
I think its battery endurance will be around 55h
Dilmeet, 13 Nov 2012Boring Looks and Cheap Plastic Feel! I love the H/W but Samsung needs to learn a lot in terms... morePoly Carbonate is plastic!
Secondly I like that its made of light weight plastic and that with Samsung I can remove the back cover to access the battery easily. The front is glass like all modern phones the back is functional and not made out of stupidly heavy materials and is easily replaced when scratched. Try doing that with an iPhone or a HTC phone.
Soapdish, 13 Nov 2012Hmmm.... Another plastic Soap Dish from Samsung..... Yawn.....I agree with you. Samsung have a plastic phones (very cheap plastic). Another problem with Samsung phones is quality - especially bad.
But some people are blind and they don't see this or maybe they don't want to see this...
Please update review with battery test. Thx
Lets see how the pricing goes
hope for $350 or less! i'll buy it..
Actually this is a great phone for cortex a9 class. I hope samsung doesn't mess with the pricing
Boring Looks and Cheap Plastic Feel! I love the H/W but Samsung needs to learn a lot in terms of Design! It does not feel or look premium at all! Why not experiment with Poly Carbonate for God's Sake Samsung! Hope there Plastic agreement ends soon! Nokia Lumia 820, 920, HTC One S, VX, One X+ are some designs people love and they are there across all price bands!
Hmmm.... Another plastic Soap Dish from Samsung..... Yawn.....
Battery test is something I would like to see :P
Samsung Galaxy Premier = Galaxy Nexus + microSD + native video call capability.
let's hope the price is right...

Please stop giving plastic a bad rap. Plastic is an excellent material for mobile devices and almost a requirement for many more portable items. There are as many kinds of plastic as there are many kinds of aluminum (including your Reynold's wrap and soda cans).
Where necessary plastic can be made durable, highly shapeable, flexible, colored-through, and can return to its shape after impact. It can be made to mimick any other material - leather, wood, etc. and good execution can really fool anybody.
Plastic is used today in very demanding applications like handguns (e.g. Glocks), high-end, high-clarity military/sports eyewear (e.g. Oakleys), high-end sports car bodies (carbon-fiber reinforced polymers in formula ones and ferraris), crash helmets, etc.
The days of glorified aluminum (really the most abundant metal on earth's surface, yet hyped as gold, platinum) are numbered.
UHF, 13 Nov 2012I understand that Samsung developed the new nature/human design of the S3, but this is getting... moreI agree they all (Note 2, S3, Premier, mini) look alike, but you'd had to be quite "special" for not telling the difference between any of those and an iPhone.
By no means look any of the "iPhonish". And I don't mind to have a homogeneous design language for the entire line up once a year. The Note, S2, S Advance and Ace (which I think the S3 mini replaces) all look alike too and that was not a problem either.
Probably the SGS4 will set the design language for 2013's line up.

If this phone is priced right it has everting to become a hit!!!
