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.
Anonymous, 08 May 2012Mr craig, Nokia is almost out, its not wining at all !!Abosolutely..
Galaxy S3 is a good phone,but style is poor.Should have 2gb ram coz lg lte 2 has it.Camera should be atleast 12mp.Size should be 4.65 inches.Should also be available in black colour.
htc oneX will give a tough fight to s3.So best of luck samsung.
put hardwork on developing a small powerful longlasting battery,then go for those processors ram gpu;->
It is one of the finest plastic material called hyperglaze. It feels lightest in your hand.People criticism here about design. But when it will come in market these people definitely buy this unit very cool design. What i feel bad about SG3 Camera only 8MP. Samsung Galaxy S no camera flash but such a powerful phone 2010
Samsung Galaxy S2 no 540x960 display pixels but such a powerful phone 2011
Samsung Galaxy S3 no 12MP but such a powerful phone 2012 I already have SG S & SG S2. And i will definitely buy this unit and offcourse hyperglaze and 8MP price will be cheaper than HTC One X.
HTC and Nokia (One X and Lumia 900/800) both are plastic and look/feel much better than what Samsung uses. Nobody is hating on plastic in general, just the cheapo crap Samsung uses. If they used a denser polymer without any gloss then it might be better.
Samsung: Don't be their sheep, be our sheep. S-heep
WELL really disappointing step by samsung!!!
really expected something monstrous specs bt really disappointing features and design.
htc one x is the best.
htc will come to 1st position soon with their one series!!
i m sure that samsung will never b able to sell their s3's as much as their s2's.
so samsung keep ur fingers crossed.
the look is not one of the best but still not that bad as you say,the specs are great,i think apple has to do something about it...
