Anonymous, 06 May 2012i think this phone has a better software than my Xperia S, but this phone are Ugly, Low camera... moreYour Xperia S takes a lot worse grainier, noisier photos than Galaxy S II. I could even expand Galaxy S II photos from 8MP to 12MP, and they would look better. Needless to mention, Galaxy S III has even better camera sensor than Galaxy S II. So, GTFO troll.
finding it hard to get as excited about it as the rest of you, its just another android handset, ill get excited when somebody does something a little bit different, all phones are boring just now, the only difference between them all is the name on the back.....nuff said

Look at iphones 8mp camera - a lot better! Nokias 12mp good! Xperia s not expandable memory either! S3 getting 64gb version and with micro sd thats 96gb memory! How on earth can xperia s be compared to this? Also some xperia s screens are all yellowish - cheap and nasty!
XCROSSYX, 06 May 2012It could have 50 mp cam a Tera of memory and 7 core processor and I still wouldn't buy it beco... moreYou probably do not know XDA developer forums, where some devs make it possible to change UI. I remember there were mods to put Sense on Galaxy S2.

Comparing SGS3 and iphone4s price and build quality.
Price is just for example only.
- build quality = USD 399
- iOs & performances = USD 1
sell for USD400
- Build quality = USD 1
- android & performances = USD 400
Now you want great build quality on SGS3
- Metal + super glass build = USD400
- Android + Samsung super performances = USD400
TOTAL PRICE FOR SGS3 WILL BE USD800!!!!
It has 8.4k likes on Facebook from GSMArena..This is huge in just a couple of days so interest is extremly high in fact its all the tech sites are talking about.
There are umpteen types of plastic and does not bother me one bit,never has..It does mean it gives the radio signals the best chance they can to do their job boosting battery life.All metal would also increase the weight and people always vote for slim lightweight smartfones..I prefer a thicker mobile it fits better in hands,is more comfortable and you can get a bigger battery in.
Samsung did listen to its customers and getting a 2100mA removeable battery in that size phone and card slot is what folk wanted.
This cheap plastic body and ugly design phone will be sold in millions.I don't say that,popularity says.Hardware is superb but in my opinion as this is high end phone the design must be superb.I know why Samsung do so.Because they have to sell Samsung galaxy s3 and galaxy note equally.I will not buy this cheap plastic phone.I will wait for Samsung galaxy note2 having s3 hardware.Hope the notes build quality be better.
m86k, 06 May 2012True, people hate TouchWiz mostly based on ignorance / rumors, not because they have used / le... moreFor me its adds samsungs own music player and concert hall setting which is abscent in the Nexus line up due to pure Android.
That pull down menu on TouchWiz is superb your right and the little unknown tricks you mention..Their is also where you alter brightness within apps as well and sure some other good options..I dont have any Android fone ATM have sold the lot for SGS3 ..I am using my N8 till end of May..
Bev, 06 May 2012Does anyone know what the battery life is like? or even on the galaxy sII?Samsung say it lasts 13 hours
james79, 06 May 2012You can definitely compare xperia s to s2 but not s3! Im no sammy lover but stop ranting about... moreYou so wrong, you can compare SG3 to Xperia S.
Only main different is the quadcore CPU nothing more.
And no one will notice the differense between the SG3 and Xperia S in real time ib daily use.
Second, the Xperia is 200,- Euro cheaper:
i feel same kind of rounded shape makes samsung is loosing d spot.
they really need to change d way the think
look at sony
htc intel and vertue
d classy n ever status symbol kind of phones is really required.
then must think in future
"S Voice is not as complex as Siri – more like voice activation for simple commands."
"What is there that's completely unique on the S3 that we haven't seen on other devices? Maybe slight differences on the features, but nothing disruptive."
i got a video of galaxy s3 frm you tube just see this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyja6Uemx_g&feature=g-upl
The specs are great .... But it is only 1GB of ram , I think it is not enough when looking to the quad core processor ... There's no improvement on cameras mega pixels , it keeps the 8 mp that found on the galaxy s2 ... Sure there's some other improvements on the camera .... The phone ( like the most android phones ) getting bigger and bigger ... The 4.8 inch screen is great for browsing and watching movies , but it's a very big for a phone ... The s2 is big enough ..... And why samsung still keeping the cheap plastic for its high end models
Those who say that the design is the only downside should think that its the most selling aspect of a phone...who would want from a big and ugly speedy phone? Tell me...executive? Of course not its so cheap plastic for them...women? They cant even hold it in on hand...maybe only computer freaks would like it and its not sure...i think its a big fail for samsung...
Im not an apple fan, i own an n9 but i think apple understand very well people needs...
Sorry for the long post
I will stick with my SGN.
I would never want Samsung Galaxy Nexus with a home button & blue/ white glossy body.
I have the s3 from canada its great not what you expect in the pictures hands on is an all new experience!!!
