Great specs. What's to be expected. ...but, my God, it looks cheap. What happened to the textured, matte finish of the SII? They've reverted back to the original S's shiny, glossy plastic. The shape of the lens/flash cut-outs look cheap. Sammie needs to work on design. Everything else is good.
The megapixels of a camera is the size of the photo and not the quality.The quality of the pictures are related to ppi(pixels per inch).To HTC fans i want to tell them to wait a few months to tell something about SIII or HTC one X.I know people who have HTC and they want to sell them because of many problems.If HTC is better than samsung,then why samsung is the top smartphone seller for 2011 and for 2012 1st quarter?

Maybe samsung improve something until May 29.On GALAXY SII the processor changed from dual core 1GHZ to dual core 1.2GHZ about 1 month before its release date.We can't tell anything if we don't see the final version of this mobile on 29 May 2012.
sm-art, 05 May 2012Who needs Beem? Will u buy 2 pc of galaxy just for Beem?what is that?probably u need infrared... moreif the sales of s3 reaches the sales of s2(i am sure of that) then you will probably see a lot of people using the s3,i don't know about your country but in my country the most used smart phones these days are the iphone and the galaxy ,and non smart phone users use nokia,7 of my close friends have the galaxy s2 and most of them will buy the s3,and i am sur e that they will use the beam function a lot.
if u open a message and ur friend wrote :call me.
what will happen if u just hold the s3 close to ur ear ? i will tell u :sm-art thing will happen :)
Specs are fantastic and the benchmarks are good battery is good but W T F did they do with the design it looks shittt!!! compared to the S2 heck even the original S...and the back is glossy plastic (special kind) -_- i know their tryna reduce the weight of the device but still...oh well cant judge all the way unless i hold 1 1st
pre-order in amazon.com.... $899 bucks
It's the Nexus with a quad-core instead of dual core and I think users can't notice this as it's a phone after all and no super applications are running on it...
My honest personal opinion is, I hate Samsung brand all together. I have owned some of their phones in past n i absolutely hate their built quality, colours look highly artificial, right from their TV's to phones. Basically when you look at colours they lack natural tone in them. I have seen galaxy s2 with one of my friend and I felt it looked to be made from the cheapest plastic ever found on this earth. Their Samsung branding near the ear piece some how gives me a sick feeling, looking at that name. I currently own HTC one x, & I am very happy to have it, except for some draw backs like low battery back and slight heating effect during 3G browsing. Common nothing is 100% perfect. I currently feel one x beats iPhone 4s and any other daam phone around 45-50k INR. Samsung only knows how to copy from their competitors, ONE X was the 1st phone with ability to capture still photo while video recording is in progress. The built quality, camera quality, processing speed, browsing speed, UI customization, n everything has so much attention to detail.. HTC one x is amazing. I am a big NO for Samsung.
The size ,and looks ruins everything about this phone.
Looks more girly
Wouldn't wanna carry this in my pocket or a suit
Droid Terminator, 05 May 2012The Galaxy S3 is not waterproof.
Rumour: The new Galaxy S3 will be waterproof.
Fact : No... moreWhat're you making phone calls while you diving, snorkeling or swimming??
Is that the only reason to buy this phone ???
Next time get a phone that you can take shower with
It looks shit and old design even before the launch. Believe me this dual core and quad core thing is a hype to sell phones. I have used Galaxy S2 for 8 months and it used to lag a lot in menu with a lot of live wallpapers and the same is with Galaxy Note that i am using now. They should come up with 2.4Ghz Quad core CPUs atleast to make the phones run smooth and something to eliminate heating issues as well..
Anonymous, 05 May 2012simply the best. no challenger. There is no way iphone 5 will come close to this and what a ma... morei like the design and performance,not a phone that stops working after two months like SGS2
Even iPhone4S is still goin to be better than this another Samsung's crap
Wait until new iPhone comes out,and we'll see which one is better
Don't judge the phone by its specs,judge by owning and experiencing it
Nice. Just the camera and the shape of the phone make it loss some points.
SGS III use S5610 Design Pattern :-(...Just Look at Samsung S5610 Back..and See the location of LED+Camera+Speaker... :-(
OMG! Now that's what you call killer specs and innovation. Eye tracking is interesting,will save you the trouble of unlocking the screen! :p
Anonymous, 05 May 2012I know now that you just read news and try to comment about those news. Look here do you know ... moreIf there would be 2 gigs of ram in S3, the battery usage would increase, because there would be 2 chips of 1gb ram. And ram must be powered up all the time, just think about it.
