Review: Samsung Galaxy S III for Verizon

UI and Communications Browse/Customize  


The GS3 ships with the latest version of the Android browser on board. It's a decent browser, no doubt, and the way in which it's connected to many of the phone's other apps makes it at least partially social. (I like the Google Chrome browser much better, though. It offers more features and simply looks better.)

The GS3 performed really well on Verizon's 3G and 4G networks. Speeds on the 3G network averaged about 1Mbps and speeds on the 4G network averages about 7Mbps. That's right inline with what Verizon advertises for both. Paired with the capable processor and beautiful display, and browsing via the GS3 is a great experience.

Each new version of TouchWiz makes dramatic improvements in the customization department and the newest variant - as realized on the GS3 - is the best yet. I found it very easy to adjust the home screens, the menu layout, the notification behaviors, and, stunningly, the incredible sound-bending tools of the phone app. Worried about themes, wallpapers, ringtones, etc.? Yeah, that can be changed, too.
