Comment: Looks great - a little confused as to CNET reviewing criteria. Two main criticisms of the One X were "it's big" (S3 is bigger) and "quad core is overkill" - which have both been turned into + points for the S3. Can anyone offer some clarity?
Comment: This phone is the best phone ive ever seen, and i guess it will be the best phone again for year 2012, now apple is probably done with the iPhone features before the GS3 release, so now its too late for apple to make any changes, for iPhone 4S2 ! lol, Good Job Samsung ! ^_^
Good: Screen, Processor
Bad: Nothing reallly
Comment: I have the s2 and maybe will upgrade. This seems cool, much better than the iphone, more feautres, better screen and pixels and overall very beautiful phone.
Comment: Hardware looks good but a bit disappointed that display isn´t PLUS version and I was hopping for edge to edge display finally maybe S4. I personally think that Galaxy S2 looks sexier then this.
But good upgrade in terms of hardware.
Comment: except processor nothing i can see any thing new................
Good: Samsung, Ice cream Sandwich, large screen, light weight, beautiful and powerful.
Bad: Price probably. I'm guessing it will cost as much as a new laptop.
Comment: I need a new laptop (or desktop) more than I need a new mobile telephone. Also saving my money for Google's tablet.
Good: the design looks stunning. Fast reacting camera, futuristic features, light weight and nature like design.
Bad: no clue yet.
Comment: people has being winging about light weight of the phone body however, despite the light weight, Samsung Galaxy S3's size and design created great grip and we can assume durability also has increased due to the light weight
. all the features, CPU and design can not be compared with HTC one X, in fact HTC one X is almost a year or two behind in technology, design, durability and custom features.
Samsung's Galaxy series has became the most remarkable premium flagship product of the mobile market and i do not doubt that Galaxy again will take the first place of mobile phones
Good: Samsung Reliability
Bad: Small market introduction
Comment: Having had five generations of Samsung cellphones because of the actual phone reliability. REALLY TIRED of being treated like sheep here in the US. Samsung should jump into the deep water first, this is their market, forget this phone and Samsung until they start catering to the market that makes them money.
Good: screen, WiFi (abgn + hotspot), BT 4, NFC, ICS, sensors, wireless charger, touch and go transfer, S Voive.
Bad: USB2, plastic case (should have metal or cemeric or kavler), design of frame, durability (waterproof, dust proof,)?
Comment: After waiting for a long time, come up with such cheap plastic case. The frame design is not professional (it is more fancy curve/tapering look). better think of more manly look and feel. this one seems more womanish and childish.
Good: big screen 4 cores
Bad: cheap plastic build
Comment: the back looks cheap. samsung phones dont have that quality build you get on the htc one x. defo wont rush to buy i bought the htc one x and its way better solid build
