Samsung Galaxy SIII, iPhone killer - review

2012-06-14 08:25

Cape Town - The Samsung Galaxy SIII is touted as an iPhone killer and Samsung is unapologetic about its desire to take on the California company for the global smartphone crown.

The latest Galaxy has a massive 12cm super Amoled (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) touch screen, but it's not fragile as the Gorilla Glass limits breakage and scratching.

The big screen may be uncomfortable for some, but the compromise is worth it as you get a great display for video, and web browsing is easier on the eye.

The body is plastic, but doesn't feel cheap and is framed in metal with recessed buttons which is an elegant touch.

But the Galaxy SIII is more than a pretty face: The device has a fast 1.4GHz quad core processor and 1GB of RAM that delivers a smooth experience when using demanding apps.

Polish

You don't buy the Galaxy SIII to make calls and send text messages: Calling this device a phone is quite an understatement and one can understand why Apple wants it banned.

It has several touches that make it unique in a crowded Android market. Samsung has taken Ice Cream Sandwich and added its own brand of polish on so that the device literally watches your face to detect what it should do.

The main 8 megapixel camera records video in high definition and along with regular features like geo tagging and picture stabilisation that we have come to expect from high-end devices; it also has smile detection and face recognition, making photography easy and there is no excuse to carry around a point-and-shoot camera.

Daytime shots are fast with zero shutter lag. In low-light conditions though, the device does struggle to get the shot, but it's a short wait to focus rewarded with better pictures than budget digital cameras can manage.

You can also take pictures while shooting video and zoom by pinching the display. This is where the large display comes into its own: Clumsy large fingers don't hit the wrong buttons and the result is a smoother experience creating video, and a better one watching the results.

Onboard is 16GB of memory and thankfully Samsung has also included an internal micro-SD so you can expand the memory up to 64GB.

The biggest competition for the Galaxy SIII is other devices running Android and Samsung has added a widgets category in the app directory so that one can easily choose which widgets to add to one or more of the seven home screens so that the display never looks cluttered.

You can also pinch the screen to view all the home, app and widget screens for faster access to a particular program.

S-berserk

Also, in an apparent nod to Nokia's N9, the Galaxy SIII employs several hand gestures: A palm swipe captures a screen grab, a palm touch mutes the device or pauses music playback. A shake of the phone tells it to scan for Bluetooth devices. The Galaxy will also call a contact displayed on the screen automatically when you bring it to your ear.

If you're passing the device around, showing pictures to friends on the display, it recognises that people are looking at the screen at won't dim until you either look away or your eyes close.

Understandably, Samsung is proud of the Galaxy SIII, but it has gone a bit S-berserk in naming its calendar application S Planner, it's app suggestion program S Suggest, and a voice program S Voice (Take that, Apple).

Audio on the SIII is great, especially with the speaker located at the rear of the phone and one can load content onto a micro-SD card, or send it directly to the phone via the supplied USB cable.

Files between two devices can also be exchanged wirelessly at high speed via the S Beam functionality, but at a recommended nose-bleeding retail price of R7 999, you won't be seeing many of these phones at the mall soon.

Samsung also launched Video Hub in SA which allows users to rent or buy movies from the phone or compatible tablets. The company said that the TV series and movies will be expanded over time.

Competition

The iPhone maker will have pull something much better out of the bag than the "same old same old" when it launches the next generation device to compete with the Samsung Galaxy SIII and growing competition from the Android market.

While diehard fans won't switch because of the Apple ecosystem, many others are moving not only to Android in general but to Samsung, specifically.

The South Korean company has a device offering in almost every category of cellphone, feature phone and smartphone and has overtaken Nokia to be the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world.

    A bit hasty with the iPhone killer title. Apple leads every category from music devices, to laptops to phones. The iPhone 5 will put the competition back in place...second place. Great alternative but the build quality on the iPhone is unsurpassed. I will keep my glass screen thank you very much.

      Squeegee - 2012-06-14 09:04

      Wishful thinking. I wouldn't buy it if it came with a porta-pottie and a built in Jacuzzi.

      Johannvw13 - 2012-06-14 09:21

      those who support apple products do not know technology

      maarten.slabbert.7 - 2012-06-14 09:22

      I love my iPhone. But untill the iPhone 5 launches this has to be king of the hill. Well done Samung.

      fidel.damons - 2012-06-14 09:33

      Dude you seriously have no idea what technology is!!! The SII murdered the iPhone ages ago and this will just send it even further into the abyss. Why do you think Apple wanna block the sale of this thing in the US, if they weren't worried about it blowing them out the water in their home market!!

      str4f3 - 2012-06-14 09:40

      If you are a sucker for apple's pretty looks and marketing hype. No-one can blame you, Steve Jobs was Probably the greatest salesman who ever lived. But dont delude yourself into believe that becuase you pay more for an apple product it has better 'build quality' . test have shown it to be average at best.

      jordaanjean - 2012-06-14 09:50

      LOL.. funny joke. Well not really. Typical uninformed response from an apple fanboy. Fist of all in the smart phone market Samsung devises are outselling the iPhone in all major markets. China ( biggest smartphone market in the world) USA, Europe and in sunny South Africa. Strangely RIM (blackberries) devices are outselling both of these in SA, but taking a nose dive in the rest of the world. When it comes to technology of the devices. The iPhone is at least 2 generations behind only on the hardware front. Talk to anyone that does phone repairs. 3 out of 5 phones that come in for repairs is an Apple product. Build quality you say ? LOL. Now when you talk about laptops. How exactly do they lead. Surely not in category of best selling because that title goes to HP, then Lenovo and then Dell. When it comes to technology once again HP and Dell lead that with the most innovative and powerful laptops on the market. What exactly do you mean music device, surely you do not think that the iPod is still at all applicable in this day and age with all the alternatives out there. Even your inferior iPhone can do exactly what a iPod does ? Then the price of all these devices? The S3 is hell expensive, now, but still cheaper than the OLD iPhone 4S 16gb(R7500 ) 64gb(R10000). So please tell me how you can in the least bit justify what you just said ?

      jsbester - 2012-06-14 10:07

      Android killed Iphones a year or so ago, currently android has 61% vs IOS 29% (this is in the USA but then again it a good indicator of worldwide). IOS has dropped from 41% to 29% in the first quarter of this year alone. Iphones will not come back from this, 32% is to huge a share to gain. That is a fact..... http://www.droid-life.com/2012/05/07/androids-market-share-balloons-to-61-in-the-u-s-during-q1-ios-drops-to-29/

      tuco.angeleyes - 2012-06-14 12:15

      @Troy Constandakis - stay with your glass screen. its all good. but as per comments above the iPhone killer was the Galaxy SII already. the SIII will send apple iPhones to the smartphone abyss.

      keenan.molver - 2012-06-14 14:43

      lol well that joke lightened up my day a bit I must say...

  • Tim√ęsto Van Dyk - 2012-06-14 08:44

    Hahahahahahahaha "iPhone killer"...how many times have these companies claimed that but they still lagging behind. It took Samsung that long to come up with a phone to challenge the iPhone 4s. And whilst they busy with that, apple is already making plans for the new iOS and new iPhone. It's clear that Samsung will forever be behind apple. Always looking to challenge, not lead.

      haha.hehe.7564129 - 2012-06-14 09:19

      Samsung Galaxy S2 was phone of the year in 2011, in other words: "It kicked Apples ass!!"

      lydonmcg - 2012-06-14 09:52

      It kicked Apple's ass? I highly suggest you take a look at the sales figures of each and attempt to argue the same again. Apple sold more than 20 million iPhones in a single quarter, whereas Samsung took two quarters to sell 10 million Galaxy SII's. A useless award means nothing...I certainly didn't vote for it!

      jordaanjean - 2012-06-14 11:04

      You seem like the kind of person that is easily impressed. The iPhone 4S = iPhone 4 + siri. That is it. Yet you Apple fanboys will insist that it is an entire new phone with all this ground breaking new tech. Like back in the day when the iPhone 2 introduced MMS. LOL. My 3310 could already do it at that stage. iPhone is the one trying to challenge, Samsung is the one in the lead at this stage.

      ianmichaelcalder - 2012-06-14 11:08

      Hi Lydon. Perhaps you could back up your assertions with some actual data? I'd like to see global sales, quarter on quarter, iPhone 4/s vs SGS2.

      Joe - 2012-06-14 12:29

      @ ianmichaelcalder - Just to make you more comfortable I am not a apple fanboy but I do use a 4s as I enjoy the phone more than the s2. Do yourself a favour and read this article for facts: http://gigaom.com/apple/2011-smartphones-by-the-numbers-samsung-v-apple/ And in the back of your mind just take into account that this comparison uses all of Samsungs smarthphones vs all of Apple AKA the iphone. Thus the entire range of Samsung smartphones lagged in sales against one single apple product.

      ianmichaelcalder - 2012-06-14 14:24

      Joe - the link you have given uses plenty of conjunction to guess at sales figures. They multiply Apples Q1 results. If I could invest based on just some of the facts, I'd be one of the people crying that I hopped onto Facebooks IPO downhill train ;p. Lyndon's argument is based on sales figures - He is implying that the iPhone has the best phone based on how many they sold. Using that logic, with Smartphones still only accounting for a small percentage of global sales, you'd have to think that both Apple and Samsung Galaxy are total rubbish. The argument hence doesn't hold up. So the way then to gauge the performance of these devices objectively is via awards and expert reviews/comparisons. Here is the kicker though - A purchase is subjective, so buy what suits you best, but for fsk sake, I'm tired of fanbooi's hurling insults because not everyone has the same tastes.

      Seriously? Thumbs down? I am not a mindless sheep ho would let apple rule my life. Just watch the South Park ep where Kyle does not read the terms and agreements of an apple app...

      John - 2012-06-14 10:57

      Rule your life? Have you seen the privacy conditions in Android? You clearly have NO idea what you're talking about, beyond sensationalist statements. Oh, and not everything in South Park is true...

      ianmichaelcalder - 2012-06-14 11:13

      Love your work John. Don't think Eil33nn has actually read either, the South Park episode is a parody of how Apple runs themselves as a business, its not actually a 20 minute episode where they read the terms and conditions of the EULA. Quickly, the train is leaving the station, try not to get left behind.

      I loathe people applying the tag "hipster" without really knowing what they are talking about. But cool story anyway

      tanya.retief - 2012-06-14 11:03

      John. I know what a hipster is. :) A true hipster would probably not be caught DEAD with an iphone, nor the SIII. Hence, the 'wannabe' tag.

      tanya.retief - 2012-06-14 11:06

      Oh hahaha. I see by your other posts you're indeed an Apple Fanboy? Your argument is then invalid. :)

      John - 2012-06-14 11:22

      Nah, not a fanboy. It's been a considered, measured approach in every instance. Initially, Apple didn't win out. But as time goes on, and if you do enough reading, the flaws of the Android platform become apparent, and self perpetuating. Personally, I had money on Windows mobile becoming the big OS. See how well that's going?

      niko.lubbe - 2012-06-14 17:45

      You know, this is immature. Why are you making it personal? You like Android and Samsung phones, great, some people prefer an iPhone. Why is this such a big deal?

  • gerrie.visagie - 2012-06-14 09:18

    I've owned both the iPhone and the Galaxy S2, I enjoy the galaxy way more. There are things you can do with it, that you just cant with an apple. Like change the look and feel if you want to, or ad a higher capacity battery. The only thing that distinguishes apple products these days are the wide accessory support, but honestly that realy is just in the iPod side of things.

      attie.mostert.9 - 2012-09-06 11:14

      I own both the S2 and I4S, All the things that can be done on Samsumg can be done on Iphone and vice versa. Hell my look and feel on the Iphone is now the llok and feel of HTC. At the end of the day, it still stays a phone and not much more. Get a tablet if you want to watch videos and play games

    The Galaxy has already surpassed the iPhone so this is misleading journalism. It's the iPhone that needs to kill off Galaxy now Both great phones. Awesome competition > keeping us consumers happy Keep it up Samsung

      John - 2012-06-14 10:54

      Strange, I've never seen the headline: "Apple releases Samsung Galaxy killer"... Obviously more misleading journalism, OR, you're not 100% on the money there. Not too sure which it is...

      martyfx - 2012-06-26 23:29

      Where u getting your stats boet? Stop reading android forums. Apple has sold over 183 million iPhones to date. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:IPhone_sales_per_quarter_simple.svg Samsung galaxy's only 50 million. How does that make the galaxy an iPhone killer? I'm stumped.

  • PetriVoges - 2012-06-14 09:27

    Android is the way to go..I have the first galaxy (upgrade this year, hopefully to the s3) and i would still take it over the latest iPhone.. so much you can do with it! custom kernels, roms, add-ons, and so many free apps, unlike iStore

  • Allen - 2012-06-14 09:37

    Think about the history of the cell phone back to the days of Nokia vs Ericson vs Motorola when they were the size of bricks with flip-up antenna. Then they got smaller and smaller with more and more features added and the race was on...it obviously hasn't stopped. The technology is astounding (as always), but I'm a bit miffed because I won't be around in 20 years time when smart phones will be so smart that they will give you the answer before you can think of the question! (I've had my iPhone 4 for 2 years and I still can't use all it's features)

  • Michael - 2012-06-14 09:43

    Most of you Apple fan boys don't realise that 60% of the iphone components come from Samsung and that Samsung derives 4% of their electronics revenue from the iphone, ipad etc.

      John - 2012-06-14 10:50

      Relevance? Components don't necessarily define design quality, nor usability, nor product profitability. The fact that Apple uses these components, amongst a bunch of other suppliers, doesn't really come into the debate here. The fact that Samsung is infringing on Apple patents, however, might...

      Michael - 2012-06-14 15:58

      There is a lot of relevance. I have read a lot of reviews on the iphone 4s and S3 and a lot of people go on bashing the Samsung about the build quality etc etc. and don't realise that a majority of the components are much of the same (probably made in the very same factory). Samsung and Apple have also been in and out of court with both sides claiming patent infringements.

      niko.lubbe - 2012-06-14 23:34

      I stopped reading at "Apple fan boys". Do you realize this makes you a fanboy as well? Manufacturing is not even close to the same as designing and/or engineering components. So I am with John - relevance?

      martyfx - 2012-06-26 23:35

      You're seriously deluded 60% you need your head checked. http://news.yahoo.com/samsung-makes-quarter-parts-iphone-4-infographic-170804275.html. So my best guess is you failed maths but got passed on lower grade! And that was iPhone 4. iPhone 4s dropped Samsung for their application processor and DRAM and chances are iPhone 5 may not even carry Samsung components at all. Just imagine the net profit loss for Samsung if Apple dropped them, they're not the only component manufacturer out there. Apple have sold over 180 million iPhones to date, take out the 25% Samsung component and guess how much Samsung loses. Do the math, no wait don't, you won't figure it out!

  • lydonmcg - 2012-06-14 09:47

    The plastic frame and lack of a Retina display alone are enough to put me off. Not to mention Android with its fragmentation and malware-for-all due to a lack of control in the app store. I enjoy having a good-looking phone that I KNOW works. I haven't had a single issue with my iPhone. Why fix something that definitely isn't broken?

      John - 2012-06-14 10:41

      Yup, what you said...

      niko.lubbe - 2012-06-14 23:37

      Although I agree with the fact that Android is fragmented, I can't imagine this being a big issue for anyone that's not a developer.

      stefanjacobs123 - 2012-06-15 02:15

      @niko.lubbe I think the problem is that apps tend to be worse when the platform is fragmented.

  • John - 2012-06-14 10:40

    I'm still waiting for the day the iPhone will be called the "Samsung Galaxy" killer. Spoiler alert; it's never going to happen... Main reasons being (i) OS fragmentation (currently 1365 models running Andriod, from 560 odd different manufacturers) and (ii) app revenue (Apple; $5.4mil from top 200, Android; $679 000). As long as iOS apps generate more revenue, it will (predominantly) be the developers choice of OS, meaning app development will get better and better, meaning the gap between it, and the rest, will continue to get bigger... Samsung can try, but as long as people keep paying for apps, it will always come in second to Apple, irrespective of hardware and software. Money talk, and bullsh*t, well, that's saying Samsung will kill off iPhones. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/appsblog/2012/jun/10/apple-developer-wwdc-schmidt-android

  • Jaun - 2012-06-14 10:42

    I just bought myself a SII. Best choice. Got it for a good deal. The 4S costs X2 the price of the SII on contract!!! That is crazy, when they are almost the same and the sII voted best cell for 2011. The best phones on the market now is the SIII and HTC one X. Second is SII, 4S and Nokia Lumia 800. iPhone supporters should except that the 4S phone competes against the SII and it is a little better when it comes to IOS and but the SII can be upgraded which means that the android will become better and better. Your IOS 5 will always stay behind!!! THAT IS A NEGATIVE!

      John - 2012-06-14 10:45

      Cool story bro. Don't let facts ruin it...

      niko.lubbe - 2012-06-14 23:50

      They are not even close to the same. The specs might look similar but the software makes a huge difference. If by best phones you mean the phones with the best specs, then sure, but every phone has it's pros and cons and the experience of phones cannot completely be measured by specs. Pitting the iPhone against the G2 or G3, the Galaxy will probably win, but iPhones integrate phenomenally with Apple's ecosystem - which is a big reason (in my honest opinion) why most people choose to buy an iPhone. Just for interest's sake, you do know that iPhones receive iOS updates right?

    I hate the Android market! I have an iTunes USA account and have dissed my Galaxy 10.1 for an iPad2. Also upgraded through a vodashop to Galaxy SII, and again, Android market sucks. Very very happy with my iPhone4, iPad2, iMac, Apple Mac Pro, Macbook Pro! And you know what? They all talk to each other, apps that install on one, automtically install on the others!

      Adriaan - 2012-06-14 12:33

      Funny, my Samsung SII and SIII and Galaxy tab also all talk to each other. And if I have the same Google Play Store account on all three they also automatically install on the others. Im quite happy with my SIII and I came from a BB background. I won't use apple simply because I don't like it. So lets all afford each other the choices we would like to have ourselves.

    Ha ha.... my dog is bigger than your dog !!! Seriously though, as an owner of an iPhone and a HTC and having several friends with the Galaxy and having compared them, well iPhone and HTC are in a league of their own when it comes to quality. The Samsung is made from cheap plastic. If you read the reviews from the UK they said they liked the Samsung but the quality left much to be desired. I have a friend who taught English to the executives from Samsung in Seoul and they all said, don't buy Samsung if you want a phone that lasts. That straight from the horses mouth as it were. There is truth in that because the Samsung is made with the local market uppermost in their minds and the average Korean changes their phones every 6 months. So why make a phone that lasts? I really find the Samsung plasticky and the touch screen on the HTC and iPhone are way ahead. At the end of the day, it boils down to personal choice but for sure I would go for the iPhone with its amazing software and great build quality or the HTC which too is a great phone especially the latest one. I think Apple will pull one out of the bag too when it releases the new iPhone. It is two years in the making so it is going to be special for sure.

  • daniel.dominick.39 - 2012-06-14 14:44

    This ''my phone is better than yours'' nonsense, is, well, just nonsense. You have to pick a phone that suits your needs. As a musician, the amount of quality apps available to me on my iphone is unrivalled. I can play my guitar through my phone and use it is a guitar multi-effects processor. Not possible on Android devices, yet. So thats why I love the iphone. But if you're not a musician, then there are better phones, like the S3. Bigger screen and easier connectivity etc. So whats best for the one is not gonna be better for the other.

    ask yourselves why every single "smartphone" that is released is always compared to the iPhone (and not any other device)...

    Please update the review as you stated that the device only has 16gb storage.The device has 16gb,32gb and 64gb available.There is also versions which feature 2gb of ram and 48mbps internet connection.You never stated any of the device's new connectivity options like s-beam etc

    Lots of delusional crazy people here. First off its not an iPhone killer because iPhones r eye candies and lots of people like candies. Second it's not the greatest looking phone. Kinda ugly (my opinion)! It has the greatest specs and touch wiz seem to have gotten a lot better but Sonly year old Xperia S (Ion and Acro S, Acro Hd (Japan only)) can kick its ass with 720p screen and 1.5 ghz dual core processor, water proof and much more. Thirdly Rim is not going anywhere anytime soon it's the only mode of cheap communication globally and is thriving in South America and the Carribbean. Until third world countries gets fast Internet and good communicationsn infrastructure it's a necessity!

    12cm touch screen, breakage and scratch limited. Calling this a phone is an understatement, this is a device. Not a fan of Sam-sung though...I want a Singing-Sam. Watch a space the new BB.

    CNET Review- The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the Ferrari of Android phones, with a gorgeous 4.8-inch 720p resolution display, an impossibly slim and light casing and a quad-core engine that goes like stink. This super-premium phone is very expensive, and the more you push it, the quicker it guzzles battery juice.

      More like a Bugatti Veyron.

    Heaven only knows where u Samsung trolls get your stats. http://www.mobilephonerecycling.co.uk/wp/index.php/2012/06/top-10-best-selling-smartphones-of-2012 By the way I am on my third galaxy SIII because of overheating issues, next step is get my refund from vodacom and wait for the iPhone 5. Before my galaxy SIII I had an iPhone 4, not a days trouble. I think I will stick with the global leader... Apple. And yes Apple I said, they account for over 20% of smartphones globally and the entire galaxy series only accounts for 12% that is 17 different phone models combined. Smoke that in your pipes peeps.

    All the new smart phones of today are great devices,be it apple,samsung,htc,sony etc,they all have their pros and cons,at the end of the day it all comes down to choice.

    Loyalty is such a strange beast! iUsers remind me of my late friend who was killed when his Nokia brick, almost as old as he was, hit him on the head. Not long before the only place you'll get to view the iPhone or iPad will be at the Smithsonian museum. Microsoft for number 1. :,)
