Samsung Galaxy S III concept makes us wish it is the real deal

0. phoneArena 10 Feb 2012, 05:03 posted on

Anything goes in homebrew concept renders, but some of them hit the sweet spot between a wacky dream device and the a plausible but boring reality. The concept of the hotly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III below is just relaying what many customers of Samsung's otherwise stellar flasgship phones want - a more sophisticated outer shell design...

i agree i think samsung should borrow apple and make two versions

sg3 premium with high mark up and quality metals

and sg3 regular using plastics and 199 2 year contract price.

i have a feeling after awhile the plastic would be more popular. simply because it wont interfere with the radio as much and its cheaper

samsung targets phone performance than design because they see us (consumers) want speedy performance. but design also matters for us

It's a shame that designers like this aren't making our phones.

No thanks, I'll stick to the dark plastic thats light weight, durable, and blends the screen into it so it looks like the whole thing is a screen. You guys can keep your scratch n dent tin. :)

I lub gallito. the boards are so.. bland without his CRAZY William shatner impersonation.

that said .. yes I'd still buy it., but it wouldn't change my opinion about metal vs plastic.

and it would still end up with a plastic case on it... like most metal phones.

lol don't get this metal/heavy vs plastic/light...I just laugh at the people who think plastic = poor build quality..and like you said majority probably use a case so does it matter what its made out of it.

Lol you know phone reviewers would complain about how thin and "cheap" it feels.

Yeah.. PhoneArena would give it a score below 9 because it's not like the iPhone and it doesn't run iOS.

for those of you who say samsung uses durable plastics:

what are you smoking?

i've owned numerous samsung phones but not because of their durability. what's the point of having a screen that blends into the bezel and chassis when you have to put a case on it to protect it against inevitable drops?

i like the look and durability of metal if you can avoid antenna issues by not having the entire back be an insulating faraday cage.

The point is looking at this phone(with performance and other variables aside), I don't think a lot of people would actually choose another phone over the design displayed here. Simply elegant and sexy. It's a phone that people would say "Wow, what is that?" when you used it rather than just overlook it.
