Samsung Galaxy S3 is a obvious super launch by Samsung and breaks the competition of others including Apple Iphone.
It has a amazing 4.7inch SUPER AMOLED Display and by class its amzing display with 720p HD Display.
Is the Phone worth $339 - $400?
Definitely a great buy in this range. If you are about to compare it with Apple Iphone 4 or Iphone 4s as the most people as well as i do, it breaks them totally unless you are die hard Apple fan. Rich Display 720p HD SuperAMOLED Display, 8MP Camera and Amazing Android beats Iphone 4 and 4S. Only to a drawback about it is, price range of Samsung products drops steply when new products are launched and i guess Note II is somewhat near to this price. Other than it considering the features this Phone provides its a great phone at a great price.
Features Samsung Galaxy S3 is great at?
Well Samsung S3 has a amazing sleek phone. Its slim enough and is a beautiful and stylish phone.
Has 4.7inch screen which is the perfect screen size where people find sumtimes 5.0 inch is big and 4.0 - 4.5 inch is a bit small. Resolution fits perfectly in the screen size so has a very sharp display.
Well talking about the buttons, it has a very smooth touch side buttons, but i think the menu button could have been better, a bit uncomfortable.
Resolution And Display
Now i believe this where people like to invest a lot. S3 i believe has the best display in its range. 720p HD Super AMOLED is the best amazing display. Very sharp Display and this is one big reason to buy this phone before any, even IPhone 4 and 4S.
Now my experience with S3 is amazingly sharp and i love to watch muvies and play games in this display.
Compare with Iphone 4s
1280x720 S3 HD SUPER AMOLED
960x640 Iphone 4s - No HD screen
Processor and RAM
Well quad core power with S3 is amazing and has 1GB RAM is enough for the cellphone to stand out. You can play seemless games and balance out very well.
My latest experience is not good though. Since 10 months old now, this phone after a jelly bean update lags down a bit in HD games. Well phone doesnot seem to provide that speed i would expect. Otherwise the touch experience is smooth and apps work without crashing down.
Comparing with IPhone 4s
Dual Core 800MHz and 5I12MB RAM Iphone 4s.
To be with speed S3 is better, because IPhone 4s also does lag with HD Games too.
Well I wont say S3 has a stand out camera experience. But since Samsung doesnot has a good reputation with the camera quality, it provides good quality image quality
Well faster shutter speed, good video light and considerable image quality. Low light imaging is not upto the mark. Nokia Lumia has a better low light imaging since loaded with carl zeiss lens.
Comparing with Iphone 4s
Well Not much difference comparatively similar quality.
Battery And Data
Well Battery is 2100 mAh and works around 12-16 hours in 3G. It has a inbuilt 16GB Memory and is enough to run apps and store data. Well it has an expandable memory slot to store just high data storage upto 64GB. A much better specs than Apple Iphone to compare with since Iphone doesnot have expandable memory
Android 4.0 Icecream Sandwich upgradable to 4.1.4 Jellybean.
NFC support - This is a very amazing feature which support streaming videos, music directly with any NFC compatible device.
Corning Gorilla Glass - Damage resistant Screen.
S-Voice which good but not good as Apple's Siri.
Well Samsung S3 is an amazing phone and worth buying if you are around to buy a price of $300-$400. Well Better phones such as Note2 and better phones are available a slightly higher range. But i believ if this is the price range you are considering.
