Summary: A new Galaxy. Samsung introduced its smartphone flagship from the latest portfolio at a big event in London. A quad-core SoC based on ARM, a 720p screen, NFC and Android 4.0 ICS belong to the must-haves of this category today.
Pros: Casing's attractive design, Micro SD card reader (up to 64 GB), 50 GB of Dropbox storage (24 months), NFC (near-field communication), Appealing and swift user interface (TouchWiz 5.0), Camera module (1080p shots, 8 megapixels, LED flash), High-contrast HD Super AMOLED (720p, PenTile), Outstanding...
Cons: Aluminum looks rather than aluminum (rim), 12 month warranty only, Preinstalled bloatware, Many software features only a nice-to-have (S Voice, Smart Stay and co.), AMOLED screen's brightness, Temperature development during load, An aluminum rim that would fit to this premium product. That would ...
Pros: A blazing fast beast of a phone with 2GB of RAM and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The display is a beauty, just short of the iPhone and One X screens. Handset is thin and light. The same hardware is sold across five U.S. carriers at the same price point.
Cons: Samsung’s TouchWiz software includes a lot of half-baked features that aim for innovation but miss the mark — sharing apps in particular. Styling is boring, and not exciting enough for a flagship phone.
Excerpt: While the court battle between Apple and Samsung ensues, we are left wondering who copied who. Even though us here at GS know where innovation started, and where copy cats came in. That is neither here nor there, this is a review of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and in all honesty, it isn’t a bad phone.
Summary: Now that we've tested the Galaxy S III on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, which is the best? All have the same huge display, slim design, and cool features such as S Beam, Share Shot, and Motion controls, not to mention a fast and accurate 8-MP camera.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S III is jam-packed with features that give the iPhone 4S a run for its money. You'll have a blast discovering everything this Android phone can do, and the camera is impressive. However, you'll have to pay more up front on T-Mobile than other networks to get this device.
Conclusion: Is the Samsung Galaxy S III an excellent smartphone? Yes it is. Given the millions of preorders, I suspect many of you would buy this no matter what I said about the phone. That speaks of Samsung's momentum in the smartphone market and their excellent track record.
Pros: Fast, big display and a great camera.
Cons: Samsung software overload, same old plastics, Super AMOLED is losing its charm.
Samsung stops teasing and finally delivers its flagship Android device for 2012 — can the Galaxy S III live up to its mighty promise?
20 June 2012
Summary: One thing that goes consistently overlooked with respect to Samsung’s phones is the company’s ignominious track record with Android software updates. There may be worse offenders out there, but Samsung’s chronic failure to update its devices on time (
Pros: Unequaled performance, Excellent camera, Functionally sound design, Android tweaks have mostly been for the better, Stellar performance, even without an Exynos SoC, Excellent camera, Functionally sound design, Android tweaks have mostly been for the better, Stellar performance, even without an Ex...
Cons: Aesthetically challenged, TouchWiz takes getting used to, S Voice is no less of a gimmick than Siri, Samsung has a history of failing to update phones on time, Aesthetically challenged, TouchWiz takes getting used to, S Voice is no less of a gimmick than Siri, Samsung has a history of failing to ...
