Forgot your Olympic hotel room key? Use your Samsung Galaxy S3!

by: Bams SadewoJuly 26, 2012

You’ve seen the limited Olympic Games edition of Samsung Galaxy S3 that will be released in Taiwan and the Samsung Galaxy Note that will be sold in the UK. Being the official sponsor of the big game, naturally the milking doesn’t end there. Amidst the packed schedule of going from one arena to the next supporting your country’s team, it’s easy to misplace small items like your hotel keycard. That shouldn’t be a problem if you bring your Galaxy S3 with you.

Working with the Holiday Inn in Stratford Westfield, Samsung makes sure that your Galaxy S3 can be used as a hotel keycard during the Olympics. More than just [...]

Box partners with Qualcomm to preload app on Snapdragon devices, users to get free 50GB storage

by: Bams SadewoJuly 25, 2012

The cloud storage competition on mobile devices is heating up, as Box goes on the offense against other established players in the market. The cloud storage company has struck a deal with Qualcomm, one of biggest SoC makers in the Android ecosystem, as well as with Microsoft for its Windows Phone devices. We figure you’ll be more interested in the former, so here are the deets.

The Qualcomm partnership means that select devices powered by Snapdragon processors will come preloaded with the Box Android app. The main perk for users is that they will get 50GB of free Box storage. The deal doesn’t necessarily mean that the Box service is mandatory, but phone manufacturers [...]

Galaxy S3 dumb search ‘feature’ coming to international version via OTA update

by: Chris SmithJuly 25, 2012

The Apple vs Samsung legal patent war, so far won by Apple, at least according to the favorable pre-trial verdicts the company got, already has an unwanted effect on the overall Galaxy S3 user experience.

Samsung is rolling out a firmware update that dumbs down the search app of the phone – instead of getting local and web results when performing a search you’ll only get web results after the update is applied. The update has already been made available to Sprint, AT&T and Verizon Galaxy S3 buyers (in that order) and it looks like it’s also coming to international Galaxy S3 versions.

Galaxy S3 owners in Canada report that a Galaxy [...]

Vtap QuickSearch brings back the smart search feature lost on Galaxy S3

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 25, 2012

We are all familiar with the unwanted software update available to US and international users of the Galaxy S3, which introduces a “dumbed down” search feature.

Now, using the search function will return results only from the web, with anything that is stored on the device, such as contacts, messages, apps, etc. not showing up anymore. This precautionary measure is how Samsung hopes to avoid yet another injunction from Apple. Unfortunately, the only real losers are Samsung Galaxy S3 users.

Luckily, with the advent of the app-based ecosystem, and a lot of third-party app developers, if there’s something missing, there’s probably an app for [...]

Galaxy S3’s inner beauty exposed thanks to intrepid X-Ray technician

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 23, 2012

Do you love teardowns? I do too, but the thought of losing a beautiful device in the process is always making me a bit sad. Call me sentimental, but I wished there was a more humane, non-invasive way to see what makes my Samsung Galaxy S3 tick… Well, there is.

Engadget reader alexcaron works with mammography machines, and, in his spare time, he likes to shoot bursts of X-rays at consumer devices, such as the iPad, Galaxy Tab 10.1, or the Nexus S. The results are beautiful, ethereal images of the innards of our beloved gadgets, which reveal many of their components.

Alex stuck a new Samsung Galaxy S3 in the X-Ray machine, obtaining the image you can see [...]

Galaxy S3 sales top 10 million in less than two months

by: Chris SmithJuly 22, 2012

Samsung’s 2012 flagship device, the Galaxy S3, is doing a lot better when it comes to overall sales than its predecessors – sure, the comparison is not necessarily fair since from year to year we’re seeing more and more people dumping regular cell phones and feature phones in favor of smartphones. Hence, it makes sense to see the Galaxy S3 sell better than the 2011 Galaxy S2, which itself did better than the original 2010 Galaxy S.

The smartphone environment is dominated by the iPhone and by the Galaxy S flagship devices – when it comes to single device sales – in that order. While no Android maker managed to match Apple’s sales of a single [...]

Special Galaxy S3 2012 Summer Olympic Games edition available in Taiwan

by: Chris SmithJuly 21, 2012

We’re just a few days away from the official kick off of the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, and sports enthusiasts will be happy to hear that they’ll be able to pick up certain Android devices dedicated to this major sporting event – at least in certain markets.

Such is the case with the Galaxy S3, which is available in a special Olympic Games edition to Taiwanese Android fans. While we’re looking at the same Galaxy S3 device – nothing inside the phone will change – you’ll appreciate the UK-based Galaxy S3 cases and the accessories you’ll find in the box.

Moreover, if you don’t like that much the available Galaxy S3 colors – Marble [...]

Brace yourselves, Verizon Galaxy S3 owners, “dumbed down” search update is imminent

by: Bams SadewoJuly 21, 2012

The expected update has finally come to Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3. Following the dumbing down of the search feature on AT&T’s and Sprint’s variant of the phone – where you can only get search results from the web and nothing from internally placed apps, contacts, multimedia files and others – Big Red is the third major carrier to receive the not so desirable software update.

There’s no report yet that the update has been widely rolled out over-the-air (OTA) to the handset, but the new Galaxy S3 firmware for Verizon has already been spotted. If you, by chance, have had to replace your phone recently, you will likely receive a [...]
