Excerpt: Having sold millions of Galaxy S II’s around the world, in more variations than one can keep track of, Samsung knew it had a lot of work to do in making a worthy successor. In many ways, the device we have before us bears little resemblance to the GT-i9100 released on Bell in July 2011 but the lineage is obvious: big, colourful icons, a squared-off home button and, perhaps most notably, one of the most powerful processors on the market.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S3 certainly hasn’t lost anything (save for an FM radio) by stepping into the world of 4G and it’s clear to see the benefits of a device able to run at such a fast pace, however a prospective customer needs to weigh up the pros and cons of an undertaking such as this at this point in the game.
Pros: 4G mobile browsing speeds, Excellent design and UI, Beautiful screen
Cons: Battery suffers under 4G, Plastic construction, Expensive tariffs
Summary: How do you review a phone like the Galaxy S III ? It’s already been subject to so much speculation, exposure, and early judgment — some of it coming from myself , admittedly — that it feels overwhelming to try and condense what it means to everyone into a single treatise. To Samsung, it’s the new flagship handset to keep the company ahead of every other Android OEM through 2012, for most people it’s a device that stretches the definition of the smartphone form factor,...
Pros: Stellar performance, even without an Exynos SoC, Excellent camera, Functionally sound design, Android tweaks have mostly been for the better
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
Summary: Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. Unfortunately, it only runs on Sprint's 3G network for now.
Cons: The Galaxy S3's screen is too dim, and Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, disappointed. Until Sprint's LTE launch, data speeds drag on the carrier's 3G network.
