With the entry of Samsung Galaxy S III in the already overflowing smartphone market, all the eyes are centered on how the new entrant running on IceCreamSandwich is going to fare in the Android Smartphone crowd. The Samsung Galaxy S3, which has come as the successor to S2, is already celebrated with its latest cutting-edge features and is even labeled as the ‘iPhone in the Android market’.
The new chick is available in two attractive colors- Marble White and Pebble Blue. With its impressive 4.8″ Super AMOLED touchscreen with gorilla glass technology integration, S3 is powered by Samsung’s 1.4GHz Exynos Quad 4412 Soc processor running on the latest Android 4.0 (IceCreamSandwich) version. Samsung S3 design is more similar to the original galaxy Nexus with curved edges.
The Smartphone is a bundle of advanced and innovative features which really make it stand out among the Samsung Galaxy Series. Yes, you can control it with your command. The natural language user interface embedded in the system uses the Voice Recognition Technology to listen and respond to your voice commands. The Smart Stay feature makes your phone ‘ON’ if you look at the screen but will go off and will be locked once you divert your gaze. This might be one of the main reasons why it is being compared to the iPhone which uses Siri technology.
The Direct Call feature of the phone makes an automatic call to the contact if you bring it to your ear while in the middle of a message. Samsung’s 32nm ARM Cortex A9 based 1.4 GHz Exynos Quad 4412 Soc processor is very powerful and fast as compared to S2. With such a powerhouse, browsing experience is simply out of the world and it is also possible to transfer chunky files through “S Beam”- Android Beam NFC Technology.
The official smartphone for the 2012 Olympics is very slim and feather light. You don’t feel like there is a phone in your pocket! Along with WiFi direct and Bluetooth 4, the smartphone is embedded with a wide range of sensors like accelerometer, digital compass, proximity, and gyroscope etc. which makes it very much customized to personal needs.
The 8 mega pixel camera on the rear of the phone is one of its best features which come with Best Shot and Best Photo. You can also take the snap while recording a video with the S3’s automatic zoom and Face Detection feature.
With all these, what can cause a little hesitation is that it is a little expensive and also there can be some ambiguity with the TouchWiz Interface. Still, Samsung S3 looks the best catch among the Android crowd!
