Samsung Galaxy 3 Review
incoming calls sounded loud but a bit hollow on the Samsung Galaxy 3, and the other party was hearing us clearly, though the voices were somewhat pitched.
The phone's loudspeaker is nothing to write home about – while strong, the produced sound is with the ubiquitous flat and tinny effect. In headset mode, due to the 5.1 channel surround audio effect, the results are much better.
There is a large 1500mAh battery inside the Samsung Galaxy 3, which is rated for 7hrs of talk time and 21 days of standby in 3G mode.
The Samsung Galaxy 3 should make a compelling mid-range Android device with its capacitive screen, polished TouchWiz interface with SNS integration, and generous battery size. However, the design is nothing impressive, and the CPU plus the screen resolution render browsing often choppy and pixelated. Its strengths are mainly the social networking integration and the extensive video format support, but for quality indoor photos and HD video capture you will have to look elsewhere.
For the Galaxy 3 to win hearts, the price has to be right (read: cheap), but we still can't vouch for that.
One good alternative to the Galaxy 3 from the manufacturer is the bada-based Samsung Wave with its Super AMOLED screen and camera that does 720p video, plus great indoor photos. If it definitely has to be Android, the HTC Wildfire might also beg for your attention with an intriguing design, and a 5MP camera with flash.
Samsung Galaxy 3 Video Review:
- Very good SNS integration with contacts
- Latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth standards
- Plays DivX/Xvid formats out of the box
- Low screen resolution
- Touch focus is hit-or-miss
- Poor video recording
- Lag here and there
