Immediately after the launched of Samsung GALAXY S III on 25th May, on the same day I get a unit of
Currently, I am using Samsung GALAXY S II but the S III has proven and convinced me that it is so much better and there are lots of improvements from its predecessor and also other smartphone in the market.
Now we have all the three GALAXY S generation here. My brother has a S I, the S II is my current phone and this latest S III ~ woohooo!
Design for Human, Inspired by Nature [ Sensational Design ]
The S III is slightly bigger that
S II and smaller than GALAXY Note. It is just the right size for comfortable grip on palm with its curve edge and feels good to hold with its smooth finish. S III comes in super sleek and slim design; weighing at only 133 grams and measuring at only 8.55mm thick.
Some may not like the plastic body/casing or feel its low quality. Actually the body/casing material is Polycarbonate, it was chosen as the best material to represent the minimal organic design of
S III battery life has upgraded to 2100 mAh compared to
S II just 1650 mAh. For me the fully charged S III battery can last more than a day, without streaming video. Considering all features, speed and bright HD display I say it done a good job and getting better.
Camera Quality [ Superior Features ]
Ok, this is the best of
S III. The camera is SUPERB & SEDUCTIVE feature, thumbs up. S III 8mp camera has zero-lag shutter speed that can capture moving objects easily without delay. The photos turn out to be SHARP. One of my blog post pictures were taken using S III. This is the blog post 360 Celsius Splash Sunday Pool Party at The Pool KL
S III delivers photos with more details my
S II. I have tried the ‘Burst Shot’ function that captures twenty continuous shots, amaze with the quality and sharpness. I like the ‘Best Photo’ feature it will automatic select the best shot among the 8 shots taken. With this I don’t have to waste time going through and selecting the best picture. Tap the display if you want to override auto-focus – and take control of exposure, ISO, white balance and so on.
I can take HD self videos or pictures with 1.9mp front. A better and improved Backside Illumination Sensor (BIS) on
S III allows me takes clear shots in low light conditions.
S III 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED HD display, very impressed when I watch HD video. Beautiful sharp, vibrant and crisp colours.
This is Samsung latest innovation features on its smartphone. It is like iPhone Siri. This feature is kind of cool, I can check the search information, weather, location, send text messages and emails, play songs, turn the volume up or down, organize your schedules and many things that S-Voice can do including talking to me when I bored driving alone.
I find that the S-Voice feature has rooms for further improvement. It only recognize 8 languages, does not include Mandarin. Hopefully
S III can cater for more languages and bigger market. Sometimes it does not recognize my voice or maybe my English is not sharp and clear so S-Voice don’t understand what I am trying to say. I speak Manglish kekeke. S-Voice response time is slower than Siri.
Performance [ Seamless Performance ]
With the ‘Pop Up Play’ feature I can play a video anywhere even while simultaneously checking emails or SMS, so no need to close and restarting of videos. The ‘S Beam’ allows any large files including movie files to be transferred by simply touching another Samsung GALAXY S III phone, even without a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. I have not have chance to try out this feature yet.
