Samsung Galaxy S III torn down on video

Samsung Galaxy S III torn down on video
The Samsung Galaxy S III is probably the most sought after Android device to have come out ever, but with such a huge demand comes the higher chance of one in millions buying the phone accidentally dropping it and cracking the screen. We’d feel a chill if we did - the device costs around $750 off contract after all. 

But if you crack the screen, or just want to peek inside the Galaxy S III to see what makes it tick, now there’s a video walkthrough of how you can disassemble the gadget. We've already seen the step by step instructions to opening the S III, but while those were only pictures, now you have a full video so you can pause, rewind back and forward, and generally feel safer prying your device open. Interestingly, the first teardown showed that the new Samsung flagship features the very same camera as the one on the iPhone 4S.

This here video is around 20 minutes long, so you definitely have all the details you want. Hit the source link to take a look at the video, and for the original HTC One X nail smashing just look below.

All I care to know is whether Sprints version has HD voice and a great antenna...if so I may be all over this...That damn EVO is appealing but a 1.9 FF video cam, and 2 gigs of ram and HD voice would make me jump all over this

As far as I know, HD voice is coming with LTE, so if its capable, it wont be usable from the start anyways.

What I care more about is if it has the same Wolfson DAC, which would process way better audio then HTCs "beats" audio. Loving the SIII so far all I really don't care for (based on seeing it online, I haven't touched it in person yet; it's not out for Sprint yet) is the design and screen.

Talking about hacking, Samsung Galaxy Nexus had JTAG Port in better position.

As much as I love Samsung, only they would use double sided tape in their phones.
