Samsung Galaxy S III

It’s here.

What do you think of Samsungs newest model to the Galaxy series? Personally, it did nothing for me. I was actually disappointed by it. The gloss shell gives it somewhat of cheap look and feel. Design wise, it looks to be Galaxy Nexus v1.2. Not to say the GNex is a bad looking phone, it’s not. I would just have hoped Sammy would have pushed the design of the phone MORE, seeing the buzz shifting around it the past few months.

It’s a spec beast, no denying that, but I’m more soon turned off by it’s looks. Samsung has tagged it “designed for humans”, huh, really? Where there robots in mind before, maybe animals? Lol. I’m not a fan of TouchWiz, and now this newest one is ‘nature themed’ TouchWiz, :yawn:.

theverge.com pretty much summed up my thoughts of the phone,

So what did we get? The Siri-imitating S Voice, a quad-core SoC that’s already been announced for the Meizu MX, a suite of camera enhancements that rips off HTC’sImageSense wholesale, and a signature animated lock screen that emulates interaction with water, something that’s been a live wallpaper option on Android phones since 2010. Oh, and industrial design and build quality that you’ll find on any anonymous South Korean MP3 player — Samsung seems to have tried trickling its design language up, never a good idea”

Anywyas, ill pass. I’m gonna probably pickup the HTC One X this weekend for AT&T. Yes, I’m leaving Sprint 😦

  1. Well Raad, to be completely honest, i wouldn’t expect the exterior to be a whole hell of a lot different then the Galaxy Nexus, except the display. Now if you compare it too the SGS II, the exterior looks much more different then the GN. A lot of the goodies or the updates / upgrades are on the inside, things that cant really be seen without the use of a hacksaw. I really wasnt expecting it to transform into a robot and take over the world or anything like that. What does worry me *very* much is the fact that the USA may not be getting the Exnyos quad-core 1.4GHz processor, instead a older, possibly outdated, dual-core processor. So would that mean US customers would be paying new technology prices for old technology equipment?
