Android manufacturers are hard at work producing their take on the world’s best smartphone. Luckily for us Android fans, this summer, there is no shortage of contenders for the highly coveted title of King of the Android hill.
Right now, perhaps, the fiercest rivalry in the Android world is the one between leading manufacturers HTC and Samsung. The stories of the arch-rivals couldn’t be more different. HTC led the smartphone revolution and commanded a sizable portion of the market up until recently. But now, the tides have turned, and the Taiwanese are struggling to return to their former glory, largely depending on the success of their highly acclaimed One [...]
Those of you living in the US who are excited by the prospect of finally being able to get a new Galaxy S3 super-phone from almost all of the nation’s major carriers might have a new reason to pout.
Samsung has just announced the release of a new Galaxy S3 model in Korea and this particular version will be everything the US phone is, but will hold an extra ace up its sleeve. Featuring 4G LTE speeds and 2 GB of RAM, the Korean-only Galaxy S3 will be powered by a quad-core Exynos processor, which, to be honest, most of us thought was impossible until now.
We’ve been hearing about compatibility issues between NVIDIA’s quad-core platform, Tegra 3, and LTE radios for [...]
So far, we’ve only had all Android manufacturers combined beat Apple when it comes to smartphone sales. They do it by a significant number every quarter (around twice the number of iPhone sales or so), but it’s still all of them together against Apple. However, with every iteration of the Galaxy S series, Samsung gets closer and closer to selling as many Galaxy S devices as Apple is selling iPhones. Note that I’m only talking about the Galaxy S devices, but the company has many other models in the mid and low ranges, and, in total, Samsung Android handsets already outsell Apple’s iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
It appears that during the [...]
After the “unprecedented demand” and supply issues encountered by AT&T and Sprint, the first two US carriers to sell the Galaxy S3, few were optimistic about Verizon’s own launch of the super phone.
Big Red had already lost “points” in the eyes of its customers by announcing it will launch the S3 weeks after Sprint and AT&T. The user frustration grew even deeper when the initial launch was pushed back from July 9 to 10.
In an unusual and surprising turn of events, however, Verizon seems to have started the S3’s shipping process way ahead of schedule. Droid-Life and Phandroid have reported yesterday on rumors that pre-ordered phones will start reaching [...]
Yesterday we found out that AT&T’s Galaxy S3 is hitting stores on July 6, and now it’s Verizon’s turn to reveal more details about the launch of its own Galaxy S3 smartphone.
The largest mobile operator in the U.S. announced earlier today that the Galaxy S3 will be available in its stores starting with July 10, just as some of the previous rumors suggested, with prices starting at $199.99.
In case you were wondering, the 16GB Verizon Galaxy S3 will cost $199.99 when purchased with a new two-year contract while the 32GB version will set you back $249.99, also when bought with new two-year agreement. Comparatively, AT&T only has [...]
Good things come to those who wait (for the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Sprint). If you can’t bear the thought of parting ways with $200 from your bank account, if you can get the phone from Sprint’s stores that is, there are some good deals on the web for Sprint’s Galaxy S3. We’ve listed the best of them below.
Starting with Amazon Wireless, the online retailer is offering the 16GB Pebble Blue model of the Galaxy S3 for a mere $179.99. The deal seems to be valid for both new customers and those who are looking for an upgrade. Be warned though, that the phone is now listed as “backordered” on the site. As for the off-contract price of the phone, it’s going for [...]
We have just learned that Sprint’s Galaxy S3 is available in the carrier’s stores and it’s now time to check out AT&T’s launch plans for this Samsung flagship device, as the mobile operator made them official in a post on its Consumer Blog earlier today.
Without further ado, here’s the news you were waiting for: the AT&T Galaxy S3 will finally arrive in AT&T stores, with the launch date set for July 6, or next Friday. Pricing starts at $199.99 for the 16GB model, and a new two-year contract is required. The 16GB model will set you back $549.99 should you decide to purchase it for full price from the carrier. The carrier will not [...]
Understanding the peril of the sedentary lifestyle that the modern day is offering, Samsung has created an app that will save you from making that trip to the clinic and make you more up to date on what’s happening inside your body.
The S Health app, available exclusively for the Galaxy S3, is compatible with many popular healthcare sensors. Amongst some of the things that you can monitor using the app include your blood glucose and blood pressure levels. There’s also a body composition scale monitoring option.
Of course, you will need those said healthcare sensors and devices in the first place. Once you do, you can conveniently transfer the [...]
Those who have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 from Sprint are already enjoying the plethora of new features on their phones, which is probably true for both the 16GB and 32GB models. As for folks who are still on the fence and need to read more reviews before making up their mind, it was last reported that Sprint will have their stores stocked up with the Galaxy S3 by July 1st. Guess what? It looks like the carrier has delivered on its words.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 can now be purchased on Sprint’s website and from other sales channels. The 16GB model will set you back $199.99, while the 32GB model can be had for $249.99. It goes without saying that they come with a [...]
While Sprint is having a rough Galaxy S3 launch so far, with the device hitting stores only on July 1, the good news is that those customers that received their pre-ordered units should already be able to update their handsets.
Before you get too excited about the update, it’s not Jelly Bean, although an unofficial Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean port is already in the works, at least for the GSM international version of the handset.
We’re only looking at a security update, but the carrier would not share any more details on the matter. Here’s what Sprint posted on its Community forums yesterday afternoon:
Samsung Galaxy SIII [...]
