Galaxy S3 dumb search update feature confirmed by Samsung, it’s because of Apple

by: Chris SmithJuly 16, 2012

Launched in late May, the Galaxy S3 is now available from all Big Four carriers in the U.S, with regional operators including U.S. Cellular and C Spire scheduled to get the handset soon. What’s particular for the American launch is that two of the Big Four mobile operators have already issued some important Galaxy S3 updates that, in addition to bringing some fixes and improvements, also happen to dumb down the Search feature of the phone.

The Verge got a statement from Samsung on the matter and it appears that it’s the company’s doing. Just as we suspected, the South Korean Android maker is taking preemptive measures against another [...]

Samsung tightens its grip in South Korea: whopping 70% market share in July

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 16, 2012

According to local news outlet Maeil Business Newspaper, Samsung is expected to increase its already impressive lead in the South Korean mobile market. After dominating the smartphone market in the first half of 2012 with a share of 66%, company executives predict that Samsung will reach an unprecedented 70% market share in July.

According to a high-ranking Samsung official, the electronics mammoth already controls almost 69% of the fast growing LTE-enabled phone segment. The strong push into the LTE segment is one of the factors that explain Samsung’s blow out performance. Phones like the Galaxy S2 HD LTE and the Galaxy S3 (which sold a record-shattering 50,000 units [...]

Samsung’s sales page for Verizon’s Galaxy S3 Developer Edition is now live

by: Bams SadewoJuly 16, 2012

Both Verizon and Samsung are seemingly unwilling to shoulder the blame for the Galaxy S3’s bootloader lockdown on Big Red. But if you’re looking for some incriminating evidence, you only need to look at how all the other U.S. carriers are selling the device with an unlocked bootloader. With the damage to its rap already done, Verizon is reportedly planning to release a software update that will somehow loosen its stranglehold on the Samsung Galaxy S3.

It’s still unclear when Verizon will roll out the patch that will unlock the bootloader, though, and there’s always the chance that it might have a last-minute change of heart. In such a case, there’s a viable [...]

Judging from the brisk sales of Samsung’s flagship device, by now the world is already head over heels for the Galaxy S3. But Samsung isn’t ready to let the romance fade.  They have just released a new video that emphasizes how intelligent the phone is. Be prepared to fall in love all over again.

Verizon Galaxy S3 locked bootlocker to be fixed by software update “soon”

by: Chris SmithJuly 15, 2012

It’s no secret anymore that the Verizon Galaxy S3 version, although otherwise similar to other U.S. Galaxy S3 variants, comes with a locked bootloader. While there are ways around it, and while Samsung did announce that it will launch a Galaxy S3 Developer Edition version that will come with an unlocked bootloader – but which will cost users the full $599 price – it looks like devs that have already purchased a subsidized Verizon unit have reasons to be happy today.

Droid-Life reports that both Verizon and Samsung customer care departments say that a software update, that’s coming at some point in the near future, will unlock the bootloader. [...]

Samsung sold 6.5 million Galaxy S3 units in June, expected to sell another 15 million in Q3

by: LucianJuly 14, 2012

A JPMorgan analyst was quoted by French newspaper Les Echos saying that Samsung sold 6.5 million Galaxy S3 devices in Q2, which is mostly June and another two days of May, since the Galaxy S3 was launched on May 29. That amounts to about 5 million units per month, or about five times better than the Galaxy Note, one of Samsung’s other highly successful products.

The Galaxy S3 is definitely Samsung’s most successful Android product yet, considering that the Galaxy S2, their previous record holding Android device, sold “only” 10 million within the first 6 months, and the original Galaxy S sold half of that (5 million) in the same time frame. The [...]

Samsung brings an extra 5GB of cloud storage to the Galaxy S3 from SugarSync

by: LucianJuly 13, 2012

It seems Samsung is a lot more focused on services and software with its latest devices. The company gave some of its Galaxy S3 customers 50GB of Dropbox storage, with access for 2 years – presumably you’ll have to buy another Galaxy device to continue using 50GB or more after the 2-year period expires, depending on the promotion for that future Galaxy S device.

Now, Samsung decided that 50GB of free storage from Dropbox was not enough, and it has partnered with Dropbox’s competitor SugarSync to bring an extra 5GB of cloud-based storage to its Galaxy S3 customers. At first glance, that doesn’t seem to make any sense. Why would Samsung offer just [...]

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 finally available in stores

by: Bams SadewoJuly 13, 2012

If you aren’t bothered by the fact that the phone comes with a locked booatloader, and if you don’t feel like waiting or paying full price for the special “Developer Edition” of the device that Samsung plans to release, you can now get the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Verizon’s stores and virtual shelves.

Ironically, the Big Red will not be offering that fiery-looking Garnet Red model of the Galaxy S3 that AT&T has just launched. So you’ll have to make do with the same Pebble Blue and White Ceramic Samsung Galaxy S3 that others have been brandishing for weeks. The price for the 16GB and 32GB model of the phone on Verizon hasn’t changed, as they both still cost $199.99 and [...]

Garnet Red Galaxy S3 available exclusively from AT&T: pre-order and release date official

by: Chris SmithJuly 13, 2012

Six U.S. carriers are already selling the Samsung Galaxy S3, or plan to start selling it soon, including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and C Spire, but all of them offer the device in the same two colors Pebble Blue and Marble White. If these colors are too boring for your taste then you should know that AT&T will have an exclusive color in stock soon, and that’s Garnet Red.

AT&T has officially confirmed the Garnet Red Galaxy S3 version on its company blog, and the mobile operator has shared availability details with the crowds. The phone will be available for pre-order starting with July 15, while in-store [...]
