"One sick, feature-packed beast..."

With it's solid specs and sleek design, I finally went ahead on purchasing this device on T-Mo. While I always seem to find it pointless to buy a smartphone within the first few weeks of it's release, the GS3 overcame those uneasy tendencies after just a few trips to the store to get my hands on it. After pushing this phone on so many occasions, it never really seemes to struggle like the majority of android powered devices on the market. Multitasking has been a breeze up to this point, everyday tasks are handled very well, and occasional spurts of heavy use don't seem to phase it's performance capabilities. I give props to Samsung for dumbing down TouchWiz,and most importantly throwing in those 2 gigs of RAM on the US variants. While it has a huge up-side, there are just a few things that could have put this device above the top.

The good:
-2 GB RAM
-TouchWiz isn't in your face like it's Galaxy predecesors
-Web browsing experience is almost stock, and after getting used to the GNex, I find the experience equally fantastic
-The screen quality/resolution is fantastic
-Video playback is second to none
-Lightweight yet shows no blemishes in build quality
-They finally decided to bringing back the LED notification!
-While the endless list of features seemed to be a bit too gimmicky for me at first, they really did grow on me, and are quite practical.

The not so good:
-Still feels a bit too cheep in the hand to be any manufacturer's flagship device.
-While the overall performance and interface of the camera is great, I feel as if they could have really set this device apart from the competition with a better lens and maybe even a physical camera button...
- Device overheats even while display is left off and all apps are killed

All in all, I am very happy with the purchase, and the device impresses me the more I use it. I would recommend it to those interested in a well-rounded device capable of most anything you throw at it. There is no doubt this phone has raised the bar, and it's availability on all 4 major carriers only adds to it's upside.

Samsung Galaxy S III Written Review by Taylor


Samsung Galaxy S III Written...
The Samsung Galaxy S III is the third installment of the ever-popular Galaxy S series by Samsung, and it is one of the most refined and balanced Android handsets we have come across here at PhoneDog. The fact that Samsung has already sold 20 million Galaxy S III units should lend credence to its quality. With literally hundreds of Android handsets before it, the Galaxy S III boasts some of the best specifications in any mobile handset … ever, such as a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED... more...
