Samsung Galaxy S3, the new Samsung smart phone, has hit the markets recently, which the makers claim is the beast of all mobile phones. The mobile giant had already released Samsung Galaxy S2, which became the wish child of every Android mobile operating system user. The new smart phone Galaxy S3 is simply the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S2, which created so much ripples and rumors in the mobile world even before its release. So, what is hot and what is not in the ‘beast of the mobiles?’ Here we go.
Samsung has incredibly designed the Samsung Galaxy S3, when compared to its predecessor. The makers have quit the rectangular design and have opted for the oval shaped one, which clearly looks similar to another Samsung Galaxy phone, Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In addition to the change in the look of the phone, the thickness of Galaxy S3 is also considerably less when compared to the S2 model. You can get this phone in two colors. The white colored model is glossy and the blue one is of brush metal type. However, the sensitive touch keys near the edge of the phone may cause inconvenience to the phone users.
The display screen is clearly one of the highlights of the new Samsung Galaxy S3. The reason is that the new Samsung Galaxy phone boasts about a 720 pixel High Definition display. The resolution is as high as 1280 x 720, which would definitely impress any type of users. Just like the Samsung Note and Samsung Nexus, this smart phone too features the AMOLED screen, which is the technology behind the deep onscreen colors. In addition to this, the display is very sharp and your icons may appear crystal onscreen.
Software and Apps
The Samsung Galaxy S3 runs on the latest version of the Android mobile operating system – the Ice Cream Sandwich. However, similar to the Galaxy S2 and Note models, the makers have placed their own interface over the basic operating system, called the TouchWiz. Moreover, the device has some quite good features such as S Beam, which allows the users to send large files easily over the Wi Fi connection. Another feature called the ‘Pop up Play’ allows the users to watch videos instantly while sending texts and so on. Since the OS is Android, there is absolutely no draught for the applications and games.
The real hero in the Samsung Galaxy S3 specs is its processor. The device features a quad-core processor that can work at an astounding speed of 1.4 GHz. This means that, the users need not have to worry for using High Definition applications and highly graphic configured games. Unlike other Android devices, Galaxy S3 does not show any slag in the performance, when multitasking is at its peak.
With all the powerful features lined up for Samsung Galaxy S3, the battery life should not be high. However, the device sustains for quite a considerable time, which is far superior to its predecessor S2. The makers have also added the feature of Power Saver, which also helps in saving the battery life.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Price
Although it boasts about quite awesome features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not a smart phone for the common man, as the price is a very premium one above the £500 mark.
