Samsung Galaxy S III coverage complete roundup

Samsung Galaxy S III coverage complete roundup
We put together a complete summary of our Samsung Galaxy S III coverage so far to ease your transition into the universe of Samsung's newest flagship Android handset.

The hype before, during and after the event has been unprecedented, with the phone itself probably being the most secretive device in Samsung's history. We can only imagine such a brouhaha to happen this year around the next iPhone launch, so there is a lot to follow.

In the end, what was revealed is an Android ICS handset with a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED display, quad-core Exynos 4412 or a Snapdragon S4 processor for the US, an 8MP camera with all the bells and whistles, and removable battery plus a microSD card slot, so the handset will be future-proof at least until the Cortex-A15 processors go into phones next year en masse.

Props to Samsung for not focusing on the hardware that much, but on a more holistic approach that tries to ease the way you actually communicate with your phone. It introduced the Natural Interaction concept with the Galaxy S III - the S Voice, Smart Stay and eye-tracking technologies that are supposed to marry speakers, sensors and microphones into one big happy family that bows to your wishes. 

The AllShare and S Beam functions stress on the social and communicative nature of the phone, while innovative features like the Pop up Play picture-in-picture video mode got seamlessly integrated into the new TouchWiz Nature UX interface, which, however, still won't wow the stock Android UI purists.
