Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on is out

Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on is out
The Samsung Galaxy S III is out and it’s a treat with a quad-core Exynos processor, a gorgeous 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera, but there’s nothing like seeing the handset in live action. Samsung this time took care of this and posted a full hands-on video review of the Galaxy S III, walking you through the most interesting new features of the handset.

The Galaxy S III hands-on goes through the design with natural curves, the screen, new TouchWiz interface, performance that has improved from the S II, the pop-up play feature that allows you to have a movie on top of everything you’re doing, the burst shot that allows you to snap 20 pictures quickly, and direct call.

Check it all out below and let us know - is the Galaxy S III what you expected it would be?

i agree as far as looks... i prefer the look of the one x much more... the shape of the III just doesnt look like a commanding phone.. too bubbly or something

The one x is nice but that sense kills it! and also that it doesnt have external SD or removabel battery oh and heavier too! Oh yea and pain in the ass when trying to root or change roms on HTC phones! The s3 stands up to its name Its better than all other out there

I might just go back to HTC and get the one X, the GS3 interface just isnt doing it for me. A few cool features like direct call and the S bean but thats about it.

It's nice to see that manufacturers are aiming for "humanity" etc.

If its android, you can just put your own alarm sounds on the sd card.

That was a silly video. "Inspired by nature. Infused with human emotion." I mean, nice liking phone, and looks so smoooooooth. But, the guy reading that copy was very stiff, and the dialogue was ridiculous. Now, the direct call is interesting, s beam less so. We'll just have to wait and see how Verizon castrates it. I figure half the onboard storage, a s**tload of bloat and licked down functionality - the typical Verizon moves.

I kinda like the blue. Not many high end phones come in that color. Specs are nice. Not sure if the quad core will work with LTE????. I wanna see benchmarks.

The phone is too big and ugly the blue is ugly touchwiz is ugly and not exynos in the us. I am a little disappointed but my expectations where too high but the phone looks great but not for me. Can't wait for moto's response.

I think Samsung left some room for the Razr HD to shine. Rumored specs for that are right up there with the GS3.

Razr maxx hd i would prefer over this

yeah, i think the best bet against the GSIII at this point is the Droid Razr MAXX HD being by Motorola which means reliability in many areas, some directly over Samsung and their impressive manufacturing process which allows them to use extremely large sized batteries which are going 1200mAh over the GSIII's stock battery size (i don't know if it even has a removable battery but it seems unlikely) and not only that but Motorola's implementation of ICS is nearly an entirely stock experience (which has hits & misses in this case) and the Razr series just looks better in mine and i'm sure in most people's opinion. don't get me wrong, the GSIII is a very impressive phone and i'm just saying the Razr MAXX HD may be the only one for a while with a chance against it...
