Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone Unleashed: Ready for Smartphone Wars
The first thing I noticed about the Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone was how much bigger the display screen was compared to the Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy S smartphones. The Galaxy S has a 4 inch Amoled display screen – just enough to satisfy; The Galaxy S2 then appeared with a larger 4.3 inch Super Amoled display screen – a little more satisfying for those lusting after a larger, more impressive display that they could show off to their friends.
The Galaxy S3 Super Amoled HD version of the display screen has now been jacked up to a full 4.8 inches – enough to drop jaws and swoon over if you happen to be into picture quality and showing off your organizational skills. Screen resolution has also improved from 800 x 400 in the Galaxy S to 800 x 480 in the Galaxy S2 to the Galaxy S3′s 1280 x 720. This is some truly serious resolution and will give the upcoming Apple Iphone 5 fits as it tries to match this resolution.
The exact dimensions of three Samsung smartphones for those who are into measuring the size of these things are as follows: the Galaxy S comes in at – 122 x 64 x 10 mm, the Galaxy S2 measures 125 x 66 x 8.4 mm and the Galaxy S3 Smartphone comes in at 137 x 71 x 8.6mm . Clearly, the Galaxy S3 smartphone is larger and it shows. It’s longer, thicker, and heavier than its predecessors and in my mind just looks stronger and more electric.
Now, about that camera resolution; the Galaxy S3′s camera continues the 8 megapixel capability of the Galaxy S2 camera that is so popular with smartphone users. Most users of the Galaxy S2 smartphone wished for a larger display screen and now they have it. It’s a lot better than the 5 megapixel capability of the Galaxy S.
I’ve heard it said however, that some Galaxy fans have been secretly hoping for a 10 or 12 megapixel camera on the Galaxy S3. The fact is, its not the number of pixels the camera is capable of; it’s how the operating system’s software handles the pixels. Got it? you’ll also enjoy the 1.9 megapixel front camera – yes there are two cameras on this guy.
With that said, it should be pointed out that the Galaxy S3 smartphone uses a much more powerful and cutting-edge Android 4.0 operating system that knows exactly how you like to manipulate the pixels on your camera. The results just feel better and are visually more impressive on that big 4.8 inch display screen. It’s indeed fitting that the user interface would be called the TouchWiz 4+.
The Galaxy S is a good phone powered with a 1 Ghz single core in its hardware. The Galaxy S2 improved on that with a 1.2 Ghz double core processor speed. The Galaxy S3 smartphone is not only bigger and wiser, it has a lot more thrust and staying power than the previous smartphones with 4 cores running at 1.4 Ghz! Now, that’s a real smartphone! I am certain that a lot of people will want to see and touch and own this one.
With all this extra power and size, it of course has a much more powerful battery to keep it going. Most smartphone owners today need to charge their phones at least once a day. The Galaxy S3 smartphone is no different – even with a more powerful battery running at 2100 maH.
If you plan to keep a lot of games and ringtones etc on the Galaxy S3 smartphone, you’ll be happy to know that you can upgrade the storage capability from the standard 16 Gbyte to 32Gbytes or 62Gbytes with a micro-SD and 50 Gbytes of Cloud storage for those who download a lot of music or media intensive games.
Well, there you have it. An introduction to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone. Apple and other competitors will have a very hard time matching the capabilities and power of this smartphone. Let the games begin!
