Comment: and now say that iphone is best
Good: Awesome screen, quad core
Bad: Battery - i expect
Comment: I would love to get this phone but I expect battery life to be a problem. Yes it has a bigger battery but with a bigger screen how does this equate to real hours.
I would love to switch from apple to to these phones but until they consider battery life properly im stuck.
Bad: Colors bad colors, thiker tahn galaxy s2
Comment: Very good processor. now it haves HD SuperAmoled in a bigger screen.
Good: Amazing screen, processor, lightweight and compact size given screen
Bad: Can't help but think the battery life is going to be terrible like S2, 13 hours? I doubt 3 hours with heavy use
Comment: Clearly it destroys the current competition and the iphone. I can't imagine Apple can compete with their iphone 5. There is a new sheriff in town, and it's Samsung
Comment: Nothing special......... except processor
Bad: BATTERY LIFE
Comment: It says in the video review that the battery life is13 hours according to Samsung. Is this right? This is TERRIBLE. This means if I leave the house at 7am by 8pm it will be dead. This is before I get home especially if I'm out after work. Is this REALLY correct? Only 13 hours? The majority of people are up for 16+ hours in a day so it won't even last a full day. Is this standby time or high usage time?
Good: so for best features any smartphone can have.
Bad: android applications need more improvement and shuddering be adfree and free
Comment: I have read about the specs of the phone.
In todays busy life a phone can be an allrounder like phone,computer,book,tomtom navigator,torch,magazine,notebook,alarmclock,and many more.
I have been using iphones for last 4 years and it was the best phone that I used for multiple purposes but there were few problems like reading something clearly,battery life and is restrictions.When I saw s2,it was more faster,bigger than iphone plus it can open more file programmes,can be reading things easily along with longlasting battery and many more features like a computer.and above it was much cheaper than iphone.I am not that kind of person can just follow others blindly and if others are just following a specific label or name then I will be behind them.Instead being realistic I found it was the best package available in market at that time with every feature and spec more than any other handset I bought it.
S3 also has largest screen than others which make it very easy to read internet pages,books,newspapers,magazine etc.
2.fastest ever browser than any other phone
3.battery is 2200 compared to 1400m of iphone 4s a huge difference
4.instead of huge difference of screen size I.e 4.8 as compared to 3.8 of iphone 4s,its more lighter and thinner than 4S
5.Hopefully will be cheaper than other comparable phones
So I believe that this is the best package so far in market and it should definitely best phone of year 2012.
Comment: there for i guess this source is quite reliable, i guess. they tryed it and noes stuff and u two commenters below didnt try it. im not saying im reliable either :/ lets just wait and see if this is all true
Comment: big however the arch and the bezel size is shorter so grip is better and theres a lot more of exynos that samsung has created then u just see and estimate. there are both pros and cons on exynos and snapdragon but exynos consumes less energy there for "quad core being a overkill" means that One x has placed the processer which wouldnt help the phone work better since it has more cons
