Samsung Galaxy S III Is Here! (Product Review)

Samsung Galaxy S III Black and White.
The Samsung Galaxy S III has officially landed on US shores. It should be in a store near you in the coming weeks. Does it live up to the hype? Is it the best Android phone out there? We believe it has what it takes to compete and to perhaps be one of the best smart phones out there.

Samsung designed this phone to "make life easier" and they may just accomplish that with their beautiful display and specs that are up to par with anything else on the market. The phone did lose some points for us in terms of aesthetics and the case is brightly colorful but gaudy and tasteless.
The Skinny.
4.8-inch 720×1280 Super AMOLED display
Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay
2GB of RAM
1.5GHz dual-core processor
8MP rear camera (1080p video capture)
1.9MP front camera
4G LTE at available carriers
MSRP: 16GB is $199 on-contract, 32GB is $249 on-contract (Very affordable)

The Samsung Galaxy S III has a 2100mAh battery, which is fairly large compared to other phones on the market. All the extra features that make the Galaxy S III amazing (like the NFC and WiFi Direct) end up tugging pretty vigorously at the battery. Pair that with a 4G LTE radio and there’s bound to be some trouble.
