0. phoneArena 03 May 2012, 16:07 posted on

The Samsung Galaxy S III is not only the beautiful handset with design inspired from nature and targetting - for a change - humans, but also a muscular silicon beast on the inside…

The US might (that's what country I'm getting your referring too) on AT&T. Like what they did for the GS2, they'll release a HSPA+ one with the Exynos, and a LTE one with the Snapdragon. Or maybe even T-Mobile, if they don't choose to pick the Snapdragon for no apparent reason again. There's still hope.

Not hating on the iPhone at all. But look at the specs. Its insane for anyone to choose the iPhone over the others except that they will because its "The iPhone". On this spec sheet. The iPhone looses on every note except for Screen Resolution. I agree that the iPhone has a Beautiful screen. Theres no doubting that. But man.
Screen Size-Android Powered phones
Thickness-Android Powered phones
Weight-Andoid powered phoned
Processor-Android Powered phones
Ram-Android Powered phones.
Camera-Pretty much a tie. the iPhone does take some impressive photos. But the Shutter speed and quickness of the Nexus is simply fantastic.
Front Camera-Android Powered phones.
Memory-a bit of a toss up. I like that its expandable on other devices. But also memory cards can fail. The iPhone is available in very nice increments of size and theres one for everyone. But what you get is what you get. And thats annoying.
Connectivity. Until a 4G LTE iPhone comes out (dont know why they didnt do this for the 4S) it will ALWAYS loose this round.
Battery Life- Android Powered phones however this one is debatable. Given the choice. I would still go for android. Its clearly the better option. And once again. This is NOT to bash the iPhone.

there is always a choice for everyone. while it holds true that some people buys an apple product to look hip and cool, some might be an iphone user since the first one and have trusted it, others are mac users who enjoys seamless syncing across their devices, others recieved it as a gift, some have recommended it, small palmed individuals enjoy the 3.5 inch screen, some jumpshipped from android (and vice versa) for whatever reason it is. i like the whole roster of phones being offered by android and if i have so much money i would try every flagship phone each os has to offer.

its sad that the iphone is still among all the tech giants of androids... the iphone specs look horrible against them. lol

you guys have to admit... people want the iphone... until android can find a better way to sway all iphone users it will continue to be a world favorite.

and seeing how the majority of sam-heads on here are let down by the SGS3 you can imagine how many "novice" users dont care about it.

bad thing for samsung is..............apple hasn't announced the iphone 5 yet!!! LOL

maybe the SGS4 will be the flagship device.

who cares what the common inbred wants. They love being spoon fed garbgae and that is what apple does.
The phone was not really a hug letdown, but the stupid rumors do not help - blame the media for that one.

Plus, it is still about choice. Android and its huge selection , blackberry, windows 7/8, and a few iphones. Android is the most widely used OS, but it is still a good competition.

yeah you're right... good competition... i can agree with that...

but at the same time whats the point of marveling over great tech of a phone if its not dominating the oldness of the iphone?

we all can agree michael jordan is an old iconic bball player...right?
well what good is a perfectly skilled new generation ball player like lebron james if he cant beat any of mj's records? or better yet get a ring?...

Sammy has so much to offer than the Galaxy s3.. HTC One X didnt miss on anything specially aesthetics.. the S3 looks, uhmmm, normal.. well, they never impressed me with their hardware ever since anyway.. and though i'm not a huge fan of Sammy, i was hoping for something better than what the s3 is right now.. totally disappointing given all the hype that was the past few weeks..

when ever there is such huge hype,people will always be disappointed its as simple as that...i did not let the hype get to me and did not fall for it to have 1080p screen etc therefore for me i see this as a huge upgrade from my s2..they have pretty much improved the s2 in every way possible...other than a plus display and maybe a non plastic design(although its polycarbnate which the one x and lumia uses yet s3 gets bashed for using it lol as i said hype creates disappointment) i dont know what samsung didnt deliver...infact they delivered alot more software enhancements then htc or anyone else that makes android....for me the s3 provides some unique features(gimmicky some) that makes it stand out from the android crowd that isnt just another quad core phone...phones have come to apoint where most specs of top end phones will be similar so its hard to sell on specs alone and actually start to sell phones on features...it works for apple who rarely talk of spec and have shown the general consumers dont care much about spec as people like us do

Just wondering...can we really compare ppi of pentile and rgb display...here is what i meant -
SGS2 has rgb display with 218 ppi (218 x 3 = 654). 654 sub-pixels per inch.
SGS3 has pentile display with 306ppi (306 x 2 = 612). 612 sub-pixels per inch.

So doesn't this mean SGS2 has better pixel density?

with all this bickering... honestly, just get the one that suits your taste. I for one would prefer faster internet connectivity on my smart phone and that's about it.

People who are not samsung fanboy are soo tired of all and BS that was on this website. Every article about an up coming phone that was not a samsung, the damn troll would say the S3 was better.
