Lol someone port the "popup play" to the android market: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.floatingplayer.app
cell, 08 May 2012guys what is NFC? pls answer:)NFC: Near Field Communication. It's a safer way of sharing data and files, which requires your physical presence for sending and receiving. It's the technology behind Android Beam and Google Wallet.
I would have been happy to lug around a few extra grammes if the rumours of a ceramic back and waterproofing were true because they would be very handy features, but the fact is this is nothing more than an S2 with upgraded features that i really don't need, but i'm gonna buy it anyway simply because i'm due for an upgrade and might as well get this.
after a detail thinking i would say SGS3 is the best phone ever made, though it does not have 2gb ram or still using pen tile matrix for screen technology.probably Sammy is saving some thing for its next flagship.........I will buy this one as soon as it lands in Australia.
cell, 08 May 2012guys what is NFC? pls answer:)NFC Is "Near Field Communication" It where two phones can send each other small files just by touching them together.
I have some reasons why the s3 is better than the s2 and some other phones.
26 reasons why s3 is better than s2
0 shutter lag
Front camera HD video
Burst shots (up to 20 pics)
Backside illuminated sensor
upto 64 GB internal
can upgrade to 64 GB microsd card
50 GB free Dropbox storage (for 2 years)
64+64+50=178GB of storage and if the 2 years has expired 64+64=128 GB
Gorilla glass 2
NFC support (S-beam can transfer files upto 300Mbps)
Advanced Voice Commands
Quad core Exynos 4212 1.4 Ghz (Benchmark shows its the fastest chip ever and uses less power)
Faster Mali-400 GPU
Pop up play (multitask while watching a video)
Wireless charging support
Slimline back (not a chin like the s2 has)
More ergonomic design
GLONASS support (more accurate than GPS)
Smart Stay (Eyeball tracking)
LED notification light
Allshare cast (Allows you to mirror your screen onto a TV.
So if you think it's not worth upgrading from s2 to s3 think again.
Ah, the Samsung Galaxy S III. Possibly one of the most hotly anticipated Android phones ever. That's on a personal note, I'm not referring to the massive hubbub that lead up to its release. Why was it so important to me? Mainly because I had just purchased the Galaxy Nexus, and if any phone was going to belittle my decision to do so, it would be this one. So, did I move to soon? Should I have waited? The short answer, I feel, is no. The Galaxy S III looks like a solid device. For me, the main issue I have is a software one.
Samsung has persisted with its TouchWiz skinning
of Android. It's not terrible, it's not even all that bad, but, somehow, a little bit dated. There are some neat extras that show a good level of thought has been put in (like the pick-up-to-call-who-you're-texting thing) and I'm sure this all conspires to create a fluid experience. For me, however, Android is all about stepping out of proprietary environments, and layered ecosystems and skins just fly in the face of that. So, thanks Samsung, the phone looks lovely and all, but I'm still fine with that stock Android you made.
Phone looks ok. SII with square edges looks better IMO. I'd def pick one up except Samsung continues to take it from behind from AT&T. I mean, come on. Is it really that hard to include support for the AWS 3G band? I'm still waiting for the T-Mobile Note that was 'leaked' a few weeks back. Sigh, the difficulties of being a T-Mobile USA customer.
this fone doesnt have the 'wow' factor because when u look at it u feel that it looks rubbish and its just plastic, but trust me its a lot more than it looks. No doubt htc one x is a tough competition because people will generally prefer one x over sIII as it looks amazing!! Even the xperia s is good in terms of camera and display but i would prefer sIII more than the others as it has great new features and the specs are awsome !! :-D and the looks are not toooo bad as people are describing it!!
nze 1, 08 May 2012Do u mind explaining how samsung tv and product is better than sony bravia tv. Do u have any i... moreForget about the tv comment then! Sony do better at midrange handsets! I compared size of xperia s to htc one x and hardly any size difference yet one x screen is nearly half an inch bigger! Explain how that makes xperia s better? S3 uses the space even better so that makes size better, number of cores better, have to wait and see with camera! Who cares if s3 pentile as long as screen is gorgeous? Im no sammy fan as I have a se live walkman(wt19i) but im just stating the facts!
Hands down worst designed phone of 2012
Looks like a Nokia 5800 from way back
Htc one x just killed s3
AnonD-51417, 08 May 2012The aim of samsung before creating this phone was “make the biggest and thinnest phone possibl... moreAgee, they shouldn't care much about being the thinnest design, a little bit bigger would affect us, they didn't learn from the razr maxx
Honestly speaking, I'm an iPhone guy, and I had the s2 and didn't like it because the battery so I went back to iPhone. But now.... I will buy the s3 and leave apple for these reasons: led notification light, the greatest creation on a mobile phone, existed 10 years ago and then faded away, why? How come? Samsung figured it out and listened to customers.
#2 : technology and innovation, you can clearly see that Samsung is going all the way in the mobile industry, so I as a consumer want to be part of the innovation.
The only bad part in my opinion is the big screen, 4.8" targets more the tech people and not the average consumer, it's a big phone.
