Just after a few days after its launch it has taken over all other smartphones because of its spectacular features.Samsung has made a big deal about this new phone, not only choosing to launch it at a big and glitzy standalone event in London but also claiming nearly 10 million pre-orders before it's even launched.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is easily the most anticipated Android phone of the year -- following in the footsteps of the insanely popular Galaxy S2. This phone sits at the very top of the smart phone spectrum -- rival high-end Androids at this lofty price are hard to find. The main alternative is HTC's quad-core brute -- the One X -- which is actually more affordable than the S3 but not such a powerhouse.The S3 has gone big on innovation, with lots of new features the speculation hadn’t dreamed of. But the first thing you notice is the size. Samsung has shown it can make a success of big screens with the 5.3in display on the Samsung Galaxy Note.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is, according to Samsung anyway, inspired by nature it sees, listens, responds, and allows you to share the greatest moments.Brushed polycarbonate – you've got a choice of 'Marble White' and 'Pebble Blue' – adorns the large device, which runs in with dimensions of 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm, despite still having to pack in a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen.The plastic feeling of the Galaxy S3 won't appeal to all. It feels very lightweight but the Galaxy S3 is not a cheap-feeling phone.
Lets start with the display,it has got a SUPER AMOLED 4.8 inches display which is just less than the samsung galaxy note which has got a5.5 inches display.
The colours are nicely saturated by default and the display setting gives you a choice between four different modes so you can select any mode of your choice.The 4.8" Super AMOLED of HD resolution is where the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III magic happens. The image quality is every bit as impressive as the specs suggest - tack sharp and with perfectly deep blacks, it's probably the best you can find on the market.Sunlight legibility is splendid too and its reflectivity is so low that even outside in the brightest day, you'll still be able to see what's on the screen quite clearly.The screen resolution is identical to the HTC One X, so the pixels per inch aren’t quite as high on this slightly bigger screen, but both displays look lush and inviting, with this one winning in terms of bright, rich colours.The viewing angles are extremely wide too - there's some color loss when you reach the extremes, but the icons and text remain almost perfectly clear.
S VOICES Voice can do the usual - search the web, make calls, send texts but you can also use it instead of the notification area toggles, to control the music player, look up weather and traffic info for a city, set timers and alarms.One of the things that made a negative impression was that the speech to text transcription was somewhat worse than Siri (which isn't perfect either). S Voice understood the commands most of the time, though there were cases when it didn't quite catch words correctly.Well the speech recognition is still a little bit iffy at times and the network connectivity can be frustratingly slow, but if you're in a car or somewhere else where hands free operation is a must then it's a good tool to have.
FACE PLUS VOICE UNLOCKS Voice has been bundled into Ice Cream Sandwich's Face Unlock capability on the S3 so now you can choose to have the phone demand to see your visage and hear your voice before it unlocks but i think not too many people will want to have to speak to their phone every time they need to unlock it
CONNECTIVITYThe Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III starts off with the basics - quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and quad-band 3G.The Wi-Fi support includes a/b/g/n versions, with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz band compatibility.The AllShare functionality is now split into two: AllShare Play and AllShare Cast. The first is for transferring and sharing data and multimedia files to your notebook or PC. AllShare Cast on the other hand provides streaming content to and from different kind of devices (TV or computer) over DLNA.
When it comes to the internet, there's no reason to think that a phone with a quad core chip, HD screen and powerful GPU should be a good experience and the Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn't disappoint.The powerful quad-core CPU and Mali-400MP GPU enable the stock Galaxy S III browser to play 1080p Flash video without a hitch.The UI has been overhauled to present a smaller URL bar, a Forward button for easier navigation and an overall more fluid feeling to the handset.The Web browser comes with Incognito mode, which enables you to surf the web without the browser keeping track of your history or storing cookies.Web pages are rendered in clear and crisp formations that lacks for nothing compared to a larger PC screen.The Chrome browser is now enabled on the Samsung Galaxy S3, thanks to it coming with Ice Cream Sandwich, so this means synchronised bookmarks over a PC, tablet and smartphone provided you're signed into Google.However, the overall effect is excellent; if you're after one of the best internet phones on the market then the Galaxy S3 is certainly one of the best out there.
The social hub of Galaxy S3 offers many options like ,it combines your email accounts with social networking (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn) and IM accounts (Gtalk, MSN and Yahoo! Messenger) and shows all incoming messages as one list with handy shortcuts to reply, mark as favorite and so on.
The Music Hub lets you browse music online with search tools, charts, lists of new releases and so on. You can preview songs and buy tracks or whole albums.
There`s a gaming hub too in which titles break down into Social and Premium games and there's a news section too. The good thing about the Hub is that it includes the titles by Gameloft and EA, which are otherwise not available on the Google Play Store.
That's not to say the Samsung Galaxy S3 isn't a superb effort in the media space.
The Music player on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is certainly a decent enough effort and offers all the functionality we'd be looking from in a mobile phone - from smart playlists to wireless streaming.There's also a virtual surround sound option in there as well, which we were surprised did actually give the impression of 7.1 sound. It only worked on tracks encoded at a higher bitrate, but it's a good option nonetheless.In terms of actual use, the Music player is actually pretty standard on the Samsung Galaxy S3.The tonal quality is very even throughout listening, and the sheer range of equaliser settings is dizzying.DLNA is also superbly well supported throughout the Samsung Galaxy S3, and allows easy access to any tracks shared from nearby devices.
The Video player on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the best out there on the market.The video player lets you choose between three crop modes for how the video fits the screen. The same SoundAlive audio-enhancing technology is available here too.The range of files supported is brilliant too: from AVI to MP4 to Xvid and DivX it's all there.The video player lets you squeeze out the best viewing experience from the large, high-res screen. You can adjust video brightness, color tone and enable outdoor visibility too.The video player on the S III has a feature called Pop up play which is a cool function to have.Press the button at the bottom right-hand side of the screen and you can keep the video playing when you're browsing the web or flicking through photos.
.The FM radio on the Samsung Galaxy S3 has all manner of functionality built into it.The Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III is equipped with an FM radio with RDS too which mean you can record the channel you are listening to.
The 2100mAh battery is designed to make sure that the large screen, with millions of pixels, isn't going to suck down the power as fast as it might do.Under heavy load, the phone will last about 8 hours.In real use, as in not checking it every seven seconds to play with it you'll get a much more reasonable battery life
S BEAM FEATURE
The samsung galaxy s3 s beam feature lets you share music,movies,photos etc by just touching two s3 devices back to back,this feature will only work on s3 because there are no s beam enabled phones out there.
It can capture stills of up to 3264 x 2448 pixels and 1.9 MP ones with the front-facing cam.The samsung galaxy s3 offers geotagging, touch focus, face and smile detection and digital image stabilization. Due to the fast quad-core processor it is also able to simultaneously record HD (1080p or 720p) video and take near full-resolution pictures.One of the big claims for Android 4.0 is the speed with which snaps can be shot when out and about, and that zero shutter lag is very much in effect here with the Galaxy S3.One of the most novel features on the Galaxy S3 is the ability to recognise faces from within photographs,The other features, such as HDR mode, Beauty mode, Panorama and Smile shot all offer excellent picture quality,
The Galaxy S III's camera has an F/2.6 aperture as opposed to the F/2.65 of its predecessor and focal length of 3.7 mm compared to the 3.97 mm of the Galaxy S II. This results in slightly wider field of view on the Galaxy S III.There's an option called Best photo available in Burst shot mode - it snaps 8 photos in a row and lets the phone automatically pick the best one.In my opinion this the best 8mp camera phone and her e is a sample picture taken from s3
The Samsung Galaxy S III is able to record FullHD 1080p and HD 720p video hassle-free. During recording you can also snap full-res 16:9 stills.The 1080p videos are impressively smooth, noise-free and with plenty of detail and good colors.
PROCESSORIt has a got a 1.4GHz cortex A-9 CPU and a GPU of MALI-400MP and a Exynos 4212 Quad chipset with the help of this the phone runs smoothly without any lag.
This phone is great in all aspects from the design to the functionality,if you want to browse the web page opens very quickly or if want to take a picture the 8MP camera is there which takes superb images.Let me tell you something, this is the best phone out there because it has all the features which a user would like to have in a phone and this is way better than the "IPHONE 4s" or the" HTC ONEX" in all aspects and you can ultimately call it the "FERRARI"of all smartphones.
