SAMSUNG GALAXY S III | The most feature rich Android smartphone yet

Samsung’s Galaxy S III has finally hit Indian shores and fans can’t wait to urge their grubby mitts on one. we all know several Galaxy S II owners who’ve already swapped their phone for the upgraded model. We’ve detected lots of remark however the S III doesn’t consider fi t for a flagship title owing to its looks and alternative factors, however we have a tendency to had to travel in with associate degree open mind, as in the end, aesthetics ar terribly subjective In the numberless footage and videos we’ve seen around the web, the S III isn’t much of a looker and once you compare it to its predecessor, or is it? Honestly, we didn’t know what to expect, but after actually holding it in our hands, it didn’t appear thus bad. The HyperGlaze coating on the body offers it a pleasant finish and prevents light scratches and fingerprints. The front consists of a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and comes with a pentile show arrangement. On the
top is that the front-facing camera with an ambient light sensor, proximity device and a notification led, while the physical ‘Home’ button and the backlit capacitive ‘Options’ and ‘Back’ buttons are set below the screen. Despite the display being Pentile, it doesn’t really create a diff erence to the naked eye. Coming back to the tour, to the left there’s the volume rocker, whereas the facility secret is set to the right. The 3.5 mm headphone jack and a noise cancellation mic are set on the highest, while the
micro USB port and the second mic are at the bottom. the rear consists of an 8 megapixel camera, speaker grill and led flash.The one factor that you just defi nitely can’t go away from is that the plastic feel of the phone. At 8.6 mm in depth and a weight of 133 grams, it’s implausibly slim and light. Samsung has managed to shave offas much of bezel as possible, so all you’re really left with is this gigantic screen, and we love it! The battery is removable, but the rear cover itself is dangerously flimsy. Apparently, the rear cover is made from polycarbonate, so it should be more durable than it looks. The S III clearly pales in comparison to the design and aesthetics of the HTC One X, which has a much more premium feel to it. Being a flagship device, we did expect a lot more from Samsung in this department. It looks good from the front, but we really wished they would have done a better job with the back panel and the overalls The S III comes with android 4.0.4 out of the box, however, we've got to handle TouchWiz once more. Samsung has tweaked and altered a number of things to give the UI a fresh look. The lock screen is no longer a glass, however has water eff ects instead. Touching it creates ripples and you merely swipe anyplace to unlock it. They’ve also added a slide-up notification bar on the bottom that updates you on missed calls, unread messages, etc. The notification bar plays host to many toggle switches, and now, Samsung has created it scrollable to accommodate additional.The Galaxy S III is powered by a 1.4 ghz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage. It’s blazingly quick and manoeuvring through the various menus, home screens in addition as multitasking is an absolute breeze. whereas performance is high notch, we tend to did have the occasional hiccup as the phone would catch its breath before resuming its dazzling speeds
The Samsung Galaxy S III comes with a 2100 mAh battery, which is close to the 2500 mAh battery in the Note. During our usage, which included heavy gaming, videos, music, Wi-Fi, a couple of calls and a lot of burst shots, the Galaxy S III easily lasted for a day. Remember that it does have a quad-core CPU and the AMOLED screen eats up battery pretty quickly if you have a lot of white color on the display. The battery life was better than the One X hands down.The S III is a bit expensive compared to the HTC One X, although the latter has been in the market for a while now. Once things normalize, it should be on par. The S III leaves the competition behind when it comes to media playback and benchmarks, not to forget the battery life. The rest of the features and performance, while high on the scale, aren’t impressive enough to deviate from the One X over to the S III. It doesn’t really have anything that would make us run out to a store and buy it
