After much anticipation Samsung has finally released the Galaxy S III and most people it seems have very good impressions of the phone. I personally have not been too impressed with Samsung’s smartphones in the past but I’ll have to actually handle this phone in person before I pass final judgement. First, let’s take a quick look at the specs:
They appear to be very impressive. But as I’ve said in the past it takes more than powerful specs to create a good phone. It’s all about the user experience. Again Samsung like most other phone manufacturers have chosen to customize Google’s Android OS. I personally like Android 4.0 but again will reserve judgement until I actually can review the phone. From the numerous video’s I’ve seen online it does seem very smooth and easy to interact with.
Here are some features according to Samsung’s website:
