Anonymous, 21 Aug 2012the battery life is terrible.worse than a iphoneIt just isn't.
hai is there is any option that while incoming call which is in already in contact in our phone and it tells name of the caller. tell me how to activate that option.
Just had my Galaxy S3 3 days ago and I'm definitely hooked by it! Battery isn't really a problem for me. I charge my phone once a day with heavy usage.
I was also torn between iPhone 4s and S3. I chose this because I already have an iPad. 2 devices with iOS on it doesn't make sense. The screen size is perfect, just what I wanted. I won't go back to smaller screens anymore. I tell you, you'll surely feel the same too. :)

Is speeds up or slows down the transition time from screen to screen.. pop up window etc
The name pretty much tells u what it does

my galaxy S isnt going anywhere :)
thanks again for explaining it
Seriouly, if i must compare this to any other cellphone ive ever used, there is no comparison! This phone has set the bench mark and its going to be hard for other companies to keep up with it.
iPhone vs S3
First of all, you can barley get any good apps for free on the apple store and the paid ones are ridicilously priced, and if you willing to pay for at least 1gig data a month, go ahead, but i can assure you, the S3 can do everything the Iphone does, and more, and ten times better!

First of all the Ascend is running on the chipset Android ICS is written for, a huge benefit, and it has compatibility in most games and apps as so many phones uses same - or older version - of TI's chipset. The Exynos in S3 has less compatibility. As simple as that.
But if it's gaming you really want, neither phone can be said to be the best, you need the Tegra (3) platform to get the most gaming compatibility.
dont get it.. a game as seemingly basic as glow hockey lags, guess its something to do with the screen technology but almost makes the game unplayable which sucks as i dig that game!
back again haha...i picked up the huawei ascend p1 a couple weeks back now and just picked up the samsung galaxy S yesterday obviously
kinda having second thoughts on selling the ascend p1 now...
its actually quicker than the s3 and games seem to run faster aswell.. eg.. glow hockey on the ascend p1 there is absolutely zero puck lag and on the s3 yep definitely noticeable like u cant even have it on the hardest setting as there is pretty much no point the puck just doesnt keep up with ur finger..
also loading webpages most of the time the p1 beats the s3 to the punch.. maybe cas the p1 runs such a bare os it just makes it that much quicker but man really starting to wish i could afford to keep both now!!
