Once you purchase these high costing mobiles, you will be always busy in mobile world and will be wasting time in reading comments posting comments, getting tension about some bugs, heating, battery, sometime regarding camera, sometime regarding screen and touch experience will feel in the corner of your heart that really this mobile worth this much price??
I bought Rs 1500 dual sim mobile, purchased a laptop and printer which has scanner and xerox capabilities and still I have Rs 5000 money with me and feeling no regret at all. Now again busy with my daily work.
i bought this galaxy s3 and quite satisfied but i read that there will be a 2gb memory coming out? on the later models. so can i upgrade mine to the 2gb memory?
For all those still deciding to buy the SGS 3, maybe this will help. I have been using the S3 for about 10days now and will give my review of the handset.
Starting with the build quality, It is actually very good though not as good as the SGS 2 or HTC One X. It feels very tough when you hold it and not even a hint of cheap plastic. The pubble blue has a nice metallic shine making it look a bit classy.
The screen is awesome...very sharp. In the browser, I dont need to zoom in to read the desktop version web pages. Images & videos looks amazing on the large screen. The Gorilla glass 2 is very smooth and finger print resistant to a certain extent(compared to the S2).
Smart Stay works well only in well lit places and your face should be visible clearly without any bright light behind you. Direct Call works in Messaging, Contacts and ChatOn. The option to take a screenshot by sweeping your hand across the screen works perfectly well too. Smart alerts works well too.
The video recording is amazing and very smooth...no hiccups at all even in low light conditions. However the pictures in low light have a lot of noise and not sharp at all,especially while recording a video and taking pics simultaneously(if anyone knows the best settings for this please let me know). Outdoor pics in good lighting conditions are very nice. I'm very dissapointed with the pictures captured in low light conditions. Burst shots work well but very blurry pics in low light. If your planning to use your phone to take a lot of indoor pics, the HTC One X would be a better options.
Coming to gaming, I've played Run Like Hell, Fruit Slice, Samurai Vengeance II, Gold Miner 2 & Highway Rider and all of them work smoothly. However Gun Bros is lags a lot(though still playable) and Splinter Cell Conviction starts but shuts down within a few seconds after the first mission starts(both games played absolutely smoothly on my S2). I'm not sure if the problem is with the games or the phone.
Battery life is pretty good and a get 2 days of average usage on lowest brightness(I switch to medium or high brightness when I use it outside). The best part is that the phone hardly heats up even after hours of continuous usage. Very impressed with Sammy here after knowing the heating issues the S2 went through.
Hope my review helps. Feel free to reply if you have any queries or any tips for me.
really the design is ugly. .and camera just 8 mp at this price is like wastage of money feel lyk these days mobile sells these days on popularity of company and how much it advertise hope some better design smartphone are made available
this phone is expected to sell 10 millions. . hmm well galaxy s3 weakest point is that it looks like a chinise unbranded phone wid those round edged curves and when having a 360 degree view the back is same plastic not at all appealing. . i wonder while company makes a flagship phone samsung didnt care about the design at all. its like a huge slab a china mobile.specs are amazing but fails for camera jus 8 mp! as the phn is very costly shud had atleast 12 mp! well i got 360 view of razr xt910. . believe it or not its super s3xy . .by far the best in design.htc one x has more pleasing looks than s3. marks for design on scale if razr is put 10. .then htc one x is 5 at gs3 is 3 points.after all looks and design of ur device matters a lot.htc one x is no doubt a better choice especially cz of poor and china phone like design of gs3.and othdr options as huawei ascend is available
just compare touchwhiz nature ux with HTC sense 3.6 ui . it was totally copied .
1. 7 pages looks same pinch & zoom style on home screen
2. 4 shortcut on lock screen
3. carousal effect of home screen
4. notification on lock screen
5. clock with weather info of HTC
Samsung has copied this things from old sense ui
I expected far more from this phone. It hangs often and restarts itself sometimes... Not at all worth of that money. Do not go for this phone. Go for a laptop for that price. DO NOT GO FOR THIS PHONE

AnonD-2355, 25 Jun 2012I'm quite confuse. I'm using iPhone 4 but attracted to this new Samsung android phones. I'm no... morewell there are different type of ui coming from different manufacturer
samsung has touch wiz, quite similar to what you see in iphone
htc has sence ui and so on
if you dont like a particular ui, there are lots of didderent ui available on play store like go launcher, adw launcher etc etc...
its quite easy and if you have any doubts, just watch a youtube video about the ui in the phone you are willing to buy..
