Number of "cores" has everything to do with speed. A single core processor is attempting to run all handset functions; screen, apps, etc. off one processor. A dual core or quad core processor is drastically beneficial because it's splitting up the work load
4,6" screen is too big for a phone, i think 3,5"-4" is the best size
It is what we were waiting for...
It is what you were waiting for...
It is what my cat was waiting for...
It is what the whole world was waiting for...
It is how it is...
Welcoming to you the Samsung Galaxy S3 aka i9300...
It is what is delivered through the galaxy family....
If that picture is real then that bezel looks far too thin. A thin bezel means that it is far too easy to accidentally press the screen with the skin between your index finger and thumb (unless Samsung have invented some way to detect this)
Wuteva anybody says_this is not wat was xpected! Just about the same as SG2,actually worse with too much processor for little memory causing imbalance! Wat all the dual core biz anyway? No1 will eva notice while in use! Still prefer SG2 coz can b upgraded to ICS too. SG3 has even lowered the standard with 1.3MP front facing while SG2 has 2MP! SG3 anyway should have blown SG2 into oblivion but has just stuck on the same spot! So dissapointed after such wait!
tbt, 29 Apr 2012If all that is true, than it is disapointed. At least they should have put 12 MP camera, I'm ... moreHow could you compare single core wit quad core, look in any computer and you will see that multi core CPUs have lower frequency/core than the single core one. Also you cannot compare 1.4 * 4 = 5.6 GHz with Nokia's 1.8.
best design leaked ever HAHAHAHAAaaaa hope it ends with that model !
This thing is rubbish. Why you would need quad core? Quad core with such a slow GPU, with only 1 gb ddr2 is useless. A good dual core processor is waaaaaaaay too powerfull for regular use and it doesn't exist an app to make it lag, so in this moment, for mobile devices(phones and tablets), a quad core processors are USELESS!!
Morol, 28 Apr 2012Go for sony xperia s. You will be satisfied. Samsung mobile has bad sound quality even in high... moreI would love to know in what wat way Sony s has better sound,,in which departments do you mean please.
I love the concert hall setting in Samsungs but found the SGS2 to have worse quality than Samsung Wave..The Samsung Wave used the Wolfson DSP chip and was superb bujt they switched to Yamaha in the SGS2..I know why the sound is worse in SGS" but want to know what you say.-
thought it would have better specs than this. take a look at the htc one x and then this. the s3 was a long awaited phone and its still not as good as the one x. overall the phone specs are good but i also think that it will have a 12mp camera..
but we're not sure till the phone comes out maybe on may 3rd.
If this turns out to be the galaxy s3, then whats the bloody big deal.
Given the many variants of the galaxy s2 to appear over the last 12 months or so. then this (s3) will be just another variant of the s2.
I guess we will soon see
brynn, 29 Apr 2012Why you posting under different names? One minute your Humour Engineer next its CS..Same IP a... moreCause, I posted my first post on gsmarena as "CS" which I also didn't register beforehand. Only to find out that it first needs to be approved by the Site-Administrators(Editors) and when I wanted to respond to your somewhat butchering comment and needed it to be applied asap and as seeing as I was also in quite a rush at that stage I was told(read) that the NickName "CS" is already reserved thus I just used Humors Engineer. If I had more time on my hand I would have continued as CS and would have registered it as CS. I actually also only realized that I registered the wrong nickname... It was suppose to have been "HumorOUs Engineer".
So Yes I agree that even I as an Engineer is not perfect, but that doesn't give you the right to just assume the worst of everybody. We live in the 21st Century, where Hackers are almost on every second doorstep. For All YOU know it could have been a Hacker to the site and one of the technics or tools that Hackers use these days are to mask their IP's and use virtual IP's that have been already been granted access previously by also sniffing for IP's. But in this case it was a human-error from my side and I apologize for my imperfect ignorance and also my rushed state of mind.
tbt, 29 Apr 2012If all that is true, than it is disapointed. At least they should have put 12 MP camera, I'm ... moreWhat? 1.8 mhz? its GIGA hertz by the way. and also nokia runs on 1.4 ghz single core. this is 1.4 Ghz QUAD core. 4 cores u undertsand?!!
so sad to see s3 like this ...hope there will be surprise on thursday ,03/05 ....and the ram can increase to 1.5 gb and the camera to 12 mp and the screen resolution is 720p hd super amoled plus
Xerxes, 30 Apr 2012Sony Xperia S which has been announced 4 months ago, is very better than this. Most of feature... moreNot just 2 cores it is double speed as Xperia S and more multi tasking , comparing the cameras xperia has only 1.5 times bigger
8Mp is very descent, what you expect from a smart phone is more processor and performance, not take pictures to print huge banners, phones are not for photo graph professionals,may be you would upload to face book with a mobile phone camera,
This has an internal and external memory which Xperia s does not have, and also xperia is heavy 10mm thick brick phone.
Xperia has 2 generations old 2.1 blue tooth misses out gorilla glass, Dragon trail is not hard as gorilla
Sony Xperia S which has been announced 4 months ago, is very better than this. Most of features are common between both, except that GSIII has 2 more cores, but Xperia has 12 MP camera. looking at price tag, GSIII is 130 pounds more than Xperia S for what?!!! just 2 cores?! No thanks, I'm going to buy Xperia S.
These specs are sad. Not what I'd hope from a S3 Galaxy phone.
Expected a more powerful CPU & GPU.
Looks like the iphone will have a real shot at dominance this year
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2012Samsung's are craps when it comes to mobile. I have Samsung Galaxy s2 and sony xperia s. I can... moreyeah, u're right. Samsung is nowhere near when it comes to Nokia, HTC and Iphone. Talkin' about 8mp recording video of 1080 @30fps, that's unbelievable. With it's poor camera quality (in reflect to galaxy s2) and bad audio quality, i think this is not gonna b a big hit, especially in d US. 4 android, i think Google should study their os. A quad-core, even iphone is twice faster than quad-core android phones. People in the US are comparin' WP and iphone, not DROID and iphone. A better study is better than adding mere component unit. WP apollo is gonna b great, BELIEVE ME!!!
