[Test] Samsung Galaxy S3

I know lots of you are waiting for a good test about the newest Samsung device, so here is what I found after doing some tests and lots of research (note the direct rival to the SGS III is the hTC One X, iphone 4s can't even compare, waiting for Apple's reaction with the iphone 5)

Lets do a recap of its specs:
  • Android 4.0.4 with Touchwiz Nature UX
  • Touch screen Super AMOLED HD, 4.8" with a resolution of 1280x720
  • Screen with 0.01ms latency
  • Quad-Core processor Exynos 4 (1.4Ghz)
  • Digital camera 8Megapixel with flash, 3.3fps, auto stabilisation
  • Front Camera HD with 1.9Mpix
  • Multimedia compatibility with a lot of formal (DivX, Xvid, mkv...) support subtitles
  • HSPA+, 4G (for the US)
  • WiFi n, WiFi direct, DNLA, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Mini HDMI port, GPS+GLONASS, NFC, accelerometer, gyroscope
  • 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Extendable with a Micro SD card
  • plastic case with HyperGlass technologie
  • 8.6mm thick, dimensions: 136.6x70.6mm
  • 133g
  • 2100MAh battery
Also we havethe S-Voice, S-Beam, Facial Recognition, Buddy photo share, all share technology (DNLA), Pop Up display, sound equalizer and wireless payment support.

Really simple like all smartphone packaging. 
Contains: The phone (of course) charger, USB cable, Earphones (hand free kit with a full remote) and the instruction manual

Well how to put it... it's ugly! Samsung still hasn't abandoned the cheap plastic design. But the HyperGlass technology completely deletes this feeling of "cheapness" created by the plastic which is a smart move by Samsung. Note that you can detach the back and take off the battery if you want (which is not the case of the hTC One X)

Perfect, nothing to say! Though I prefer the SLCD of the hTC One X
This Super AMLOED HD screen give superb video effects, reading is very enjoyable and has a slight  unnoticeable preference for the blue

Nice and clear. The speaker is positioned on the upper part of the phone.
It is really nice to use, the TouchWiz interface doesn't change much to the Android interface; on the contrary they complement each others very well
Integration of social networks, and also you can view gallery content (facebook) 
There is a lot to say but I can't write them all so I'm leaving the surprises to you guys hoping you will enjoy them like I did 
A little word about the S-Voice, it is just like Siri but it can understand you better

Well obviously with a quad-core everything is more fluid and better, games take less time to load and 1080p videos does not glitch

Here is a chart if you want to compare

Notice how the iphone 4S can't even compare!

That it for today, I will continue with the Camera and the battery later on. For now take care and enjoy the reading
