The Samsung Galaxy S III is officially here, and Aaron's doing a (very early) review of Samsung's newest Ice Cream Sandwich superphone in London.  Galaxy S III offers a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD (720x1280) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording and burst mode, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera with 720p HD video recording, 2,100 mAh battery, HSPA+ (or 4G LTE, depending on the market), and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with the newest version of TouchWiz.  The smartphone is incredibly fluid, and has a ton of great hardware and software features that users are sure to like.

Ara Boss Zakarian
Ara Boss Zakarian Sticking to Nokia pureview
Chad Richter
Chad Richter Terrible design. Just terrible. Samsung lost me with the original galaxy s and I don't think I'll ever be going back. Htc phones all have the same boring design, lg.. Who cares and Motorola locks boot loaders. Jail broken iPhone, you're sticking around for a bit longer it seems lol
Marçal Vieira
Marçal Vieira i like it...design is cool, why so complain about it ? but one thing its really freak me out, the PLASTIC....so hype and they came again with plastic ? no way....htc one X is better, no doubts
Cesario Brito Jr.
Cesario Brito Jr. I don't even know anymore. Lol its still between this or the EVO LTE. I can't believe Samsung didn't improve on the screen. The One X still has the better screen.
Leona Horne
Leona Horne In a word......Impressive.

Adrian Salazar
Adrian Salazar Prob won't get here in the states till next year and prob with a dual core
Josh Veerkamp
Josh Veerkamp Not enough of an improvement over the Galaxy Nexus to warrant an upgrade. Cool to see them releasing it next month in the US, normally we're at least half a year behind everyone else.
Mark D. Cox
Mark D. Cox Galaxy S2 for the win! S3 doesn't even have the 12MP camera like it was supposed to, Nokia is about to Come out with a 41MP Canberra and they can't put in a 12MP come on...
Naj Khan
Naj Khan I thought it woud be good design but more plastic great

Brad Allison
Brad Allison When are people going to stop believing that more megapixels=better? Simply not the case.
Brad Allison
Brad Allison Looks nice but I just ordered the One X because I prefer it's display, construction and UI.
Alan Moncada
Alan Moncada The design is so gross. And it most likely won't hit Verizon. Not with a quad core processor anyway
Rachelnelsoncecilia Mejia
Rachelnelsoncecilia Mejia this phone is amazing! i love the exynos quad core and i cant wait for it to hit Verizon ASAP so i can cop it for myself.
