Samsung Galaxy S3 review

Jun 22

Samsung Galaxy SIIIOk, so I got my new ‘Marble White’, 16GB, Gorilla Glass 2 (uses PenTile matrix technology) fronted, Samsung Galaxy S3 2 weeks ago (wasn’t able to get new Pebble Blue due to the paint issue Samsung is experiencing).

It’s an alternative to the usual iPhone, it’s Open Source, cheaper and very soon will be equally, if not more popular than the iPhone. Currently, Android market has in excess of 300,000 apps which is increasing all the time. When I switched I liked the open source aspect of the OS. Its ability to sync my other Google accounts fairly dynamically in addition was a great bonus. I also liked the fact it’s customiseable in that the dev community can contribute to it’s ongoing overall development through apps with an open SDK (something apple doesn’t have which is still being improved on). Promises of access to the Bootloader should be coming soon. And of course, Android Market is far more user friendly than that horrid, stand alone app iTunes which requires a download. continue reading…
