Hands-On with the Samsung Galaxy S III
- Ugly design
- Ugly UI
- US variants might have Exynos (don't hold
your breath for a quad core on Verizon)
The only thing it has going for it is the processor and thats even if it's Exynos. Battery life will be improved but thats about it.
No thanks. Sticking with the Galaxy Nexus and extended battery. 4.0.4 ICS solved most of the issues many were having and it'll get Jellybean way before the S III does. That's for damn sure.
If your a current Galaxy Nexus owner, that's fine, stick with that. But I'm a current Droid Charge owner, SIII would be a big leap for me.
Oh absolutely. I wouldn't take that away. Definately an upgrade for you. All depends on one situation
What I noticed us even though the S III
has a bigger 4.8in screen than the S II's
4.5in screen, it still weighs 133 grams,
same weight as the S II, very interesting!
I have no idea what processor will be in US versions, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a dual-core Qualcomm S4, which blows the doors off any quad-core chip that's been tested so far. You seem to be holding out for quad-core.... Why would you want quad-core if it might actually be slower?
Yes I did see the screen was a little bigger but I was looking forward to Exynos as I missed it with the GSII moving to Nexus. negligible difference though. Wasn't as dramatic as many put it. But I was thinking Exynos quad might perform better than the S4 though, no?
I know the S4 beats Tegra in tests but S4 beating Quad Exynos??? That wasn't the only thing that turned me off actually. I just can't deal with TouchWiz. I can't. I prefer a stock experience.
As I said in the article, the new TouchWiz is a bit closer to stock than past versions.
Rich I do have a question, the blue one certainly looks blue on the back, but on the front it looks moreso black, does it? Or is that just lighting?
Apple upgraded the lens in the IPhone 4S
HTC likes to brag about the One Series camera.
Just wondering if there have been any noteworthy improvements to the S3's camera.
However, from what I've seen the Nexus camera hardware is itself much much nicer than what was on the GSII, even with the drop in resolution. So great improvement there.
Either way I'm still rocking an old school Vibrant (not even the 4G) And while flashing ICS to it kept me happy enough to not upgrade to GSII/GNexus, this looks like it'd be totally worth finally upgrading for.
