"The best smartphone out there, but not by much!!!"

I've got the international version of Galaxy S III in 16gb pebble blue variant since three weeks. By now you all know how fast the phone is and how great the screen is, so i'll rather be focusing on the little things that will please you and others that will make you pull your hair out. Ready, set, GO:-

->First thing you'll notice when you lift-up the phone is how nicely it fits in your hand as well as your pocket. The design in terms of looks has grown on me since it has been released, but all said and done it has to be one of the biggest negative points of this phone. It is significantly less handsome than my friend's one x and my sister's lumia 800.

->Next thing you'll notice is that awesome super amoled screen. I haven't noticed any pixelation and text is easily readable at low zoom levels. My only gripe with the display is that it is too bright at lowest brightness level and too dim at highest level. Everything is still readable in broad daylight but compared to my friend's iphone 4s whites are a bit dimmer. Overall, satisfied with the screen.

->Camera: zero complaints. Everything I want, plus more.

->Touchwiz: While I admit I don't like it aesthetically, it has to be the best UI in terms of functionality, including the stock android. However, I find it difficult to use little add-on features like tap-to-top(need to tap 5-6 times to make it work), smart stay(works fine, but not useful for me) or camera lockscreen gesture(works 2/5 times only). One feature(or lack-of) that makes me pull my hair out- NO LOCKSCREEN MUSIC CONTROL!!! SERIOUSLY SAMSUNG???

Phew!! Just wanted to get some things out first. Now to why you should go for this phone- ITS THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S III !!!! Its bound to get more support like app support, XDA support or something like availability of a case or screen protector after a year or more, compared to say one X that may get forgotten like the sensation. Its fast, fluid, feature-packed, STABLE, and yeah quite an attention-grabber. The best phone out there. :-)

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...
