This fones only few millimetres bigger than LG Optimus 3D P920 and thinner also.
To person below waiting for dad to return home with SGS3,,
If you are comfortable with Note than thats probably the better choice with stylus..I would like the Note but its out of my reach its too big for me..I have seen a few folk using Note actually and its sold more than Samsung ever anticipated..I have only seen the white version in use and its gorgeous..I wish they had fold out screens for best of both worlds..The Note is another superb piece of kit.

My dad bought this phone in the UK....waiting on him to come back 5th of may...would give a hands on experience soon.
From what I've heard him talking about the SGS3 is not so much as people say it is....I mean I would even have second thoughts on trading my galaxy note for it. Only thing I see that is a good feature for in it for me is the smart stay and the multitasking video feature. Every other feature the sgs3 have would be nifty but I can do without.
Using from last two days..it's big hit by Samsung S3
Great Phone,long battery timing, So smart, Camera superb, blue color is killing, display excellent,
100 by 100...Best phone ever had...GALAXY S3...

S1 and S3 have perfect sound quality, but ONLY after installing the Voodoo Sound drivers by Supercurio! S1 and S3 without these Voodoo Sound drivers does not have very good sound quality!
Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2012So the same is characteristic at Moto phones? This is not good. Probably I will search for som... moreYeah I think most manufacturers use the same few sound chips which seem pretty mediocre, where Nokia must be using something different, and it's just a shame Nokia don't do Android because Symbian's been almost dead a long time and being officially killed of in 2016 and Windows Phone is like taking 3 steps backwards from Android.
I can get nearly 100 photos done in 20 seconds that some proccessing power..Also the box is half the size of SGS2 if not smaller..I have hammered it allday and its dead now after 13hrs 10 minutes and only second charge..It will get better about its 7-10 charge..
I am now going to tell you how long the thing takes to charge,,the amperage on the plug is 1.0A which is one of the highest chargers ive had on a mobile phone.

Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2012I agree with you. Example my Omnia HD can take great videos, but the sound quality is pitiful.... moreAbsolutly true when i go out to gigs or clubbing i would take a Nokia its the MEMS high quality microphones that reign supreme here..Nowadays i use N8 for going out but it will be replaced by 808 soon.I tried Wave and SGS1 and with stronmg bass elemants you get a garbled mess,,i dont expect the SGS3 to be any better but maybe the Koreans have upped their microphones..
Moto do make good quality phones but their codecs compatibility and cameras is lacking..
HTC well they make phones with bags of software but components are poor but appartently the One X is better..
I would like to try the LG 4X but dont hold any hope..
If you are happy with the phone you have why spend money to upgrade..If you have SGS2 now and love it then no reason to upgrade,,I am not here to sell Samsung thats their marketing departments job..
This is a big smartphone but fully pocketable and slim as hell.As with all phones i have 14 days cooling off period here in UK.. I just wish the LG had come out first,if i hated it i could have swapped it for sgs3..You know how it is tho you just cant wait to get your hands on the latest tech.
Seems like a Exciting 2012 SAMSUNG GS3 vs HTC ONE X fight for the top slot
[deleted post]Like all high end Samsungs it'll start off expensive and be at that price in 2-4 months, I mean Samsung aren't like Apple who never drop their prices.
Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2012Let me tell you something about my phone. If I take a video when I sing, it will be horrible. ... moreYeah I just don't know why Samsung sound quality is actually so bad when people keep saying the S1 and S3 are supposed to have really good sound chips, and if anyone still believes that just get hold of an old Nokia and you'll see just how bad Samsung sound quality is, and g don't think even the IPhone could match my old N95 or N73, and I've tried a few Sony Ericssons that were a match for Nokia but never found a decent Motorola.
The reason for the Indian prices being so high is due to the weakening of the Indian rupee during the past few months and not wholly samsungs choice. All they are really charging is around 700 Usd which is reasonable and at par with most flagship releases
hvgrtdude, 03 Jun 2012I don't understand whats the need of "quard cores?".up to dual core processors are b... moreOne reason is heat, because if you got a single core running a few processes it heats up and performance drops and things start crashing, but more cores mean you can run Android on 1 core then any game or App gets it's own core so there's less stress and 1 App is less likely to freeze up the processor and cause crashes.
