Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III review: S to the third

20 May 2012
Today is no ordinary day for the GSMArena test track, which is about to see the Bugatti Veyron of smartphones do the rounds in an attempt to beat the lap record of its predecessor. Samsung have spared no effort to protect the Galaxy S III against any odds.

AnonD-44860, 20 May 2012hate u gsmarena .why u didnt say any thing about xperia s a... moreStop complaining, it's a review about a top class new phone. Not some old tech like Sony despite its obvious camera advantage (design is only a matter of taste, Xperia NXT are just basic monoliths/rectangles). And yes don't worry, they will review, if Sony decides to release their presumed GX monster internationaly.

So Thanks GSMA for the review, your conclusion seems the most logical since SIII announcement : Samsung just holding for others to catch up this year.

    I wish Samsung didn't **** up the interface like that. Excellent phone with CM9 on that.

        hate u gsmarena .why u didnt say any thing about xperia s as a rival? did meizu or one s or unknown huawei deserved but sony with best build quality and very pretty design,cool 12 mp cam, 32g internal,4g rom, 1g ram and pretty hd reality display not? is it just matter of speed? just speed is important? xperia s is also very very speedy and silky that u cannot notice diffrences between it and one x in usage(not benchmark)as tested. be honest gsmarena. and u can also wait for monester international xperia gx that can be best without doubt.just wait till june

                  That will do me ,sold..

                  Just as a guide i downloaded the untouched 1080p video to play and it took 1 minute 21 seconds..I wondered how long others took..I would say my internet connection is poor.
