Samsung Galaxy S3 review
The following review is based on the experiences and images of PhoneArena.com already the Samsung Galaxy S3 has tested it. This specimen is very close to the retail version and can therefore be seen as a representative review.
In the middle of 2010 announced the first South Korean company Samsung Galaxy S to, just when Android was working on its march. It was not the prettiest device of the time, but surprised friend and foe by the impressive specifications. It was at that time by far the best Android device to obtain what was and could not really go wrong. And it did not because Desire was the first in a short time as many as 10 million copies worldwide. The subsequent S2 Galaxy in 2011 reached exactly the same effect in terms of specifications and sales numbers. Even devices that were later released and – on paper – better specs on disposal, could and can not win the Galaxy S2. And such success can really only one answer to follow: the Galaxy S3.
It is now the fifth month of 2012 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 has finally shown on stage. The big difference with the previous two launches that the expectations were much higher this time. And then we disagree on the high-end specifications, because that was all actually already out. But earlier pioneering features such as a ceramic casing, a premium design, waterproof and wireless charging. Not all expectations were met by Samsung with the announcement on 3 May, yet the international media now very positive.
We experience itself: the longer and more (moving) images we see of the Galaxy Samsung S3, the better we will find him. And that’s without mentioning the long list of specifications and features.
The design of the Galaxy S3 is not like you’re used to the Galaxy S2. The edges of the device are in fact now more rounded, which still makes for a somewhat kinder view. The Korean manufacturer dedicated to the inspiration of the design in nature, which we currently find some far-fetched.
The magnification of the screen (ie 4.8 inch) does not ensure that the overall design is also the same degree is increased. It must be fun and the unit must remain somewhat effortlessly fit in your pocket. It is Samsung very successfully by the bezel – space around the screen to the edge – considerably smaller. And in particular of the top and bottom. Nevertheless, the well-known physical home button is still present. Or narrower, but made longer in order to minimize the bezel.
Despite the large front view of the device, it is only 8.6 mm thick – or rather thin – and it’s a really lightweight, with its 133 grams.
There are only three physical buttons present on the entire unit (four if you use the volume buttons as two separate shows). As said the new home button, which is accompanied by both sides touch buttons (back and menu). The other two are thus the volume knob (on the left side) and the power button (on the right side). It appears that the latter button not always cooperate. Thus there is some effort needed to press the knob.
Furthermore, the following also present on the exterior of the device: a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top, a microUSB connector on the bottom and the shiny back is a 8.0 megapixel camera with single LED flash and a speaker grill. When you get off the back you have access to the Micro SIM and microSD card slot.
Samsung is known for, for the most innovative product to have when it comes to display technology on phones. The AMOLED screens are known for a while with success and it could of course also not lacking in the Galaxy S3. The unit features a huge 4.8 “HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. As you expect from AMOLED, the colors sharp, but very bright. And the 4.8 “screen maybe too bright and colorful, especially when visiting a Web page. Fortunately, you can adjust the color saturation itself. But with photos, videos and games, this colorful display is back to full advantage.
The added benefit of AMOLED is that black is black and not gray, as on the LCD screen. Moreover, the pixel off completely in the color black, which is also energy saving.
For this saving method to further expand, there is also chosen for a PenTile matrix instead of a traditional RGB. Here we have an extensive article devoted to you HERE to read. We look into the question, why we chose the PenTile matrix.
The expected software field for the Galaxy S3 is high. People want something new, something innovative and that Samsung is well on their way. Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich is the basis for the TouchWiz user interface on the Galaxy S3. It looks like Samsung is fully and properly made use of this base. This is reflected in the ease of use of the device. Everything is well organized and nicely designed.
It is immediately clear that it is a Samsung interface is, as you can see this on the visual aspects like the home screen. Yet there are some innovations, improvements and new techniques. TouchWiz is another piece in many ways become more sophisticated. That you will discover soon enough. There are some wonderful, unique features. These will be discussed shortly.
There are some new features that Samsung introduces, through commercials, the Internet or on our site you may have encountered them.
All features are designed for the smartphone easier to use. They also give an extra addition to the fun factor of the S3.
Voice S is Samsung’s version of Siri. It is the personal voice assistant to the Galaxy S3. You can ask anything of S Voice, the commands are possible. If your question / command clearly understood you quick and accurate answer. A brief comparison with Siri also shows that both systems perform equally well. The requirement is that you ask / commands spoken in English, the Dutch are happy in most cases there pretty good at it. Below are some examples that you can use S Voice.
1. I want to take a picture – The machine flies directly to the camera app
2. Snooze – The alarm will go off once snoozen
3. Music Play, pause, skip track – Various controls for the MP3 player
4. Set a timer – Alarms
5. Look up the weather – The weather in your area will be consulted
6. Wifi on / off – Wifi on and off.
Then there’s Stay Smart, a cool feature! Stay Smart ensures that your screen just never stops if you look at it. The front camera keeps an eye on whether or not your eyes focused on the screen. So long as you keep watching, the screen will just stay on. You do not separate into menus to set how long the screen stays on when the touchscreen is not touched.
S Beam allows fast files such as music and videos from one to the other device to send and receive. S Beam makes direct use of WiFi: 2 smartphones should be kept close together, so a fast connection (up to 300 Mbps) arises. A song from 10 MB to transfer? This is possible in less than 3 seconds can be realized.
With AllShare you can wirelessly browse media files and other AllShare devices send. Samsung devices use the AllShare feature, so if you have other devices, then connect seamlessly to the S3.
Email & SMS
The types of e-mails or SMS messages to the Galaxy S3 is a real pleasure. The big screen, the virtual buttons on the QWERTY keyboard big and will not be easy to make a mistake. Different styles are available via keyboard Play the Google store, this keyboard will experience only improve further.
Internet connectivity and
If we have a hig-end smartphone like the Galaxy S3 in our hands get, we expect top performance in terms of browsing. The S3 can appeal to a very cleverly designed web browser. It flies, it seems so. Pages load quickly and easily between different tabs may optionally be navigated around. There is no question of delay or hesitation, everything runs smoothly. What makes things even better is the latest version of Adobe Flash Player is integrated. This makes good use of the very capable performance of the 1.4 GHz quad-core processor.
To speed in browsing support, S3 has the proper network hardware. There is that HSPA + 4G download speeds up to 21.1 Mbit / s and a theoretical upload speed of 5.76 Mbit / s. Of course there is also WiFi, supporting 802.11 b / g / n / a, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP.
Processor and memory
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is equipped with a real mathematician: the new quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, clocked at 1.4 GHz and 1GB of RAM. There is a graphics GPU: ARM Mali-400/MP4. The performance of the chips provide is of an extraordinary class. Android runs very smoothly without any hitches. Also, applications are charged the fly. Multi-tasking is also no problem for the S3. The processor allows you to do exactly what you want without fuss, that we like. See below a benchmark survey, the difference is clear:
For storing multimedia is 16/32/64 GB of embedded flash memory. If desired, a microSD card can be added to the total memory can be upgraded with up to 64 GB through microSDXC. As if this were not enough, the Korean manufacturer also 50 GB of free memory Dropbox away for 2 years.
The Galaxy S2 was one of the best camera phones of the last 12 months. The Galaxy S3 expects at least you still the same, or rather better results. Fortunately, Samsung has a number of improvements in camera technology. Firstly, the sensor is changed, the S3 has a “backside illumination sensor” (BSI). This sensor has the advantage that more light is absorbed in the photo. In dimly lit room, the flash are somewhat less likely to have used and will be the colors the picture is more natural.
There is also the burst / best mode, a useful technique for the rapid 20 photos taken together. The user can then select the best of the 20. This technique is made possible by the 0-delay shutter. This means that there is no delay between the auto focus and then shoot the picture.
As with most Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy S3 also offers many features to take photos in different themes. There are several options (single, burst, HDR, Beauty, etc.), different methods focus (auto, Marco and face). There are also several other options for example, white balance, resolution, contrast, etc.. There are many opportunities for pictures later editing.
Below are some pictures shown here are the pictures that were taken out of nice quality. They liked what sharper, but for an 8-megapixel camera, they are fine. Colors are vivid and the brightness is fine. Also, images that are within made of reasonable to good quality. Especially if there is sufficient light, the pictures come into their own. If too little light is available, the LED flash ensures adequate artificial light.
Then the camera: we can be brief, it meets our expectations. Videos are recorded at a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (1080p, Full HD). The quality is high and that is just below an example movie also good to see. The frame rate (29 fps) is good enough.
The Galaxy S3 has the right features to the field of multimedia smartphones to surpass. The stunning AMOLED display always provides a beautiful display, whether a video or pictures, that does not matter. The video player on the Galaxy S3 is also fantastic. Once it starts you get an immediate overview of all your smart clips. The nice thing is that a thumbnail for each clip is included, with a short animation in which a small preview of the film is processed. Very clever. Almost every video format is supported by the Galaxy S3, below are actually all popular video formats and even some lesser-known extensions.
The built-in MP3 player seems at first sight quite simple, however, shows that there are some smart features are built that listening to music easier and more enjoyable. An example is that you go through the sound equalizer on the type of music can match. There are several options, including: pop, rock, dance, classic, bass boost, treble angry, etc.
Overall performance and battery
The sound quality during calls is often overlooked for smartphones. Samsung has really thought about it. The S3 is an equalizer which calls happen late in a natural way. It’s almost like you’re under 4-eyes are talking to each other. Samsung has one “noice-cancellation feature” integrated into the microphone, which filters out most background noise.
The 2100 mAh battery on the Galaxy S3 will be more than enough for your smartphone at least one full day to run. Even with very intensive use, this will prove sufficient. For more passive use the S3 will soon sustain 2 full days. When your videos non-stop viewing the Korean flagship, than does the battery last 10 hours full. An impressive feat. We think we can cautiously estimate that the average half a day the battery will last longer than the Galaxy S2.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is just a spectacular smartphone. For a large part this is due to its excellent hardware specifications. Yet the Galaxy S3 also excels in the field of software, thanks to the numerous features to use easier and more enjoyable. To all the details thought. Think Smart Stay, Voice S, S Beam and thumbnail animations.
It should be noted that the S3 on the large side, which in itself is not surprising, given the size of the screen. This makes it somewhat difficult to use with 1 hand, for people with smaller hands. Apart from this little fact is the end result was very successful.
The Galaxy S3 is, we think, the best smartphone to date. In September, the ability to wirelessly charge the device and this will be an extra cherry on the cake. HTC may have chest wet and might be better just to sell some HTC X’jes One, for this sample Android is coming.
