Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S III on Amazon's German site for 599 Euros
There were no pictures of the phone included with the listing, but some of the specs were mentioned such as the 4.7 inch Super AMOLED screen that shows 16 million colors, and a 12MP camera with AF, LED flash and face detection. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box and the Samsung Galaxy S III is said to come with 16GB of native storage that can be "expandable to 32GB". Actually, we think the latter might have lost something in the translation and should read that the storage can be expanded by as much as an additional 32GB using the microSD slot on the model.
We would take all of this information with a pretty high level of skepticism, knowing that we should know everything on May 3rd when Samsung takes the veil off the phone. The interesting thing is that Amazon Germany put up the listing in the first place which makes it a placeholder more than a specific offering.

I think everyone should just have the worst spectations for this phone. Expect the worst. This way, if the phone is bad you are not truly dissapointed. But if its good you'll feel allot better. To many rumors about this phone are coming, and its just best to wait for May 3. This month is almost over.

Seriously, I don't know what's wrong with people now adays.
The Galaxy S3 will have a high end 720P Screen, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
The Galaxy S3 will have a high end processor, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
The Galaxy S3 will have a high end camera, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
The Galaxy S3 will run Android, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
The Galaxy S3 will have a high end 1800-2100 MAH battery, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
The Galaxy S3 will have a good front camera with 720 video recording, just like the one Sony, HTC, Motorola and LG are having in their smartphones.
There won't be anything so special about it, if you live everyday thinking that they will come with a 160 MP camera, 16 core processor and 15 GB of RAM; you're fooling yourself... Yes, they can do that, so does each company I stated above, but it's simply stupid.
To me, choosing a high end phone is about the manufacturer itself. Design, Android Skin, Durability/Resiliency and Customer Support are the major features that differentiates smartphones. There isn't something called "The best smartphone of the year" or "Best camera phone of the year" or any of that crap, but there is something such as "The best smartphone for you". I have an Android phone and even though it's perfect, I still miss my old BlackBerry. Yes it lagged, yes it had horrible battery life, yes it had no applications but it was good for what it was for.
It's all about your personal preference; some prefer saturated OLED displays, some prefer more realistic LCD displays, some prefer brighter and more power saving IPS displays.
Some prefer fast cameras, some prefer good macro shots cameras, some prefer cameras with big lens etc etc...

They're going to have a 720 P screen in the future...probably June.

Thats because there expecting the S3 to excel in all the things u mentioned... Remember the S2 and the optimus 2X.. they were both Dual core, high end.. but the S2 excelled... then theres the Camera both where 8 MP. but the S2 excelled again... and the screen and perhaps a brand new UI by samsung.... its normal that they expect and are greatly anticipating another sequel of a phone that excelled in almost every aspect it has with the competition with the same spec sheet...It aint all about the specs its about the experience and that certain factor that the S2 had that created such a splash in the Mobile world...
27. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
I had both an Optimus and an S2, they were both fantastic phones.
The reason I think the S2 got the upper hand in this competition was because LG rushed with their phone without optimizing it correctly.
How can that be proven? The phone was running Android 2.2, it only had 512 MB of RAM (Yes, the RAM is really important specially that Android 4.0 uses Hardware acceleration and needs atleast 1GB to work properly), it used a Nivida Tegra 2 processor, and from my experience with tablets and phones, this is one of the weakest dual core SoCs, it also had a very small battery. I won't really speak about the cameras and displays because again, that goes to your personal preference. People have over 15 different DSLR and TV brands to choose from, and they choose what suits them best. Same thing goes to UI (If both were running on 2.3)
Well, as I said in my above post, the customer chooses the company that has the best optimization. If you had phones from the companies I stated above, and they all had not similar, but identical specs. I can guarantee you will choose the one you: Like it's design the most, like it's Android Skin the most, think is the most durable and know they have good customer aftersale support. And most importantly, you will choose the screen and camera you like the most and think meets your needs. Apart from these things, they are all just android phones with the same skin, design, camera, screen, company and durability ;)
Don't get me wrong, I am sure the Galaxy S3 will be a superb phone and will take 10/10, I just don't think it deserves all that hype. It's gonna have normal specs like other phones, and the reason it got all that hype was the specs in the first place so...
29. Archan_Pe (Posts: 74; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
well sure... but as youve said.. it was "rushed" and this time the S3 isnt rushed.... exactly why people giving it that much of a hype cause people thought that samsung will do what they did again, make time as an arsenal for excellence... cause after all like the S2 its going to have a different sizzle and im sure of that
31. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Well if that's the case, we should also build super hype for the next Moto/LG/HTC/Sony phone because again...they are not rushed and will be properly made. Building hype for something that's not revolutionary is non-sense to be honest. If they released a new phone every 3 years, you have every right to build up the maximum hype because it will have incredibly new features; thing is...it's not.
33. Archan_Pe (Posts: 74; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
Yah... and the one thing that gives people all this "hype" its because its predecessor was stunning! Excuse me how sure are you that it aint going to be revolutionary? they might pop up something amazing... so watch those hands nothing is proven yet.. get that?
34. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Well, judging from Samsung's history, they haven't introduced anything revolutionary...why? They don't really invent anything.
35. Archan_Pe (Posts: 74; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
lol xD... perhaps the S3 or what ever its called... lets just wait... xD
30. Archan_Pe (Posts: 74; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
and dude.. i respect you cause your not some sh*t babbling person who writes f*cks you(s) as replies... ;D... and I do respect your point dude... people should be more like you LOL
32. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Oh why thank you :) Much appreciated man
24. TheGreatXavi (Posts: 10; Member since: 27 Nov 2011)
so you said everyone must like you? just one point, just because you think one thing is right based on your logic, doesnt mean its right for everyone.......so shut the f**k up and let everyone choose phone for themself
28. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Letting everyone choose a phone is what my entire post was about.

jeez, sounds like Samsung wants to screw everybody over worst than Apple (fruits at least tell you what the phone you're getting "before" you buy one!)
