Samsung TecTiles NFC stickers announced: app shortcuts for Galaxy S3 & other phones

by: Chris SmithJune 13, 2012

The Galaxy S3 is only the latest of a (limited) series of Samsung phones that come with near field communication, or NFC, support. The wireless tech is mostly used these days to enable mobile payments on such Android smartphones, with Google being one of the many promoters of this new payment technology.

But Samsung has other plans in mind for its NFC phones, as the company has created a new disposable accessory for these devices, the Samsung TecTile, which is essentially a NFC-based app shortcut / action trigger.

The TecTiles, which will be available in stores when the Galaxy S3 launches, come in packs of five stickers and are priced [...]

U.S. Galaxy S3 launch unhindered by Apple’s preliminary injunction attempts

by: Chris SmithJune 13, 2012

The Galaxy S3 is going to be available in America from six carriers this summer including the Big Four – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile – but also two regional carriers: U.S. Cellular and C-Spire. At least three of the four nationwide mobile operators planned to launch the phone in the following week, with June 21 being the earliest U.S. Galaxy S3 release date in the region. But an expected obstacle soon appeared: Apple.

The iPhone maker tried to obtain a preliminary injunction against Galaxy S3 sales in the region, arguing that the handset is in violation of some of its patents. The company attempted to include the Galaxy S3 in [...]

First OTA updates for Galaxy S3 now rolling out to “improve stability”

by: AdrianJune 12, 2012

Just days after releasing the Galaxy S3 in Europe and parts of Asia, and before getting it out in the US, Samsung has already issued not one, but two OTA (over-the-air) updates for their new flagship phone.

The first of the two upgrades weighs in at 31.17 MB, according to a SlashGear report, but only 9 MB, according to the guys at Phone Arena, and its changelog only mentions “improved stability” as software tweaks and/or improvements.

To get the update, you only have to access the Android settings menu in your Galaxy S3, tap “About Device” and then “Software Update”. A message will pop up if you perform a manual check, and the new software package should be up [...]

[Video] Samsung Galaxy S3 gets torn apart and put back together

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 12, 2012

As a tech blogger, watching drop tests and videos of phones being disassembled and put back together help me with my work. That being said, I find absolutely no reason for a private consumer to try this at home. Especially when it comes to $800+ devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3.

But, if you want to replace a non-functioning component with your own hands or to take a look around the inside of your device, just for the thrills, the video below provides a perfect guide. The 20 minute video, by YouTube blogger LE55ONS, is a complete step-by-step guide on how to take apart a Galaxy S3, repair/replace non-functioning components as required, and put it all back together.

Galaxy S3 to ship “on or around” June 21 to AT&T customers

by: AdrianJune 12, 2012

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has been officially confirmed as hitting Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and now C Spire in the United States, but things remain a bit unclear on the phone’s release dates.

Sprint has been the only carrier to officially announce the S3 as shipping on June 21, while all the others seem reluctant to clear the air once and for all. T-Mo is rumored to launch the new Galaxy phone on the same day as Sprint, while Verizon and US Cellular will most likely be (unfashionably) late to the release party, being expected to start shipments in July.

Finally, AT&T has kept completely quiet on the subject, leaving us to speculate and [...]

C Spire Galaxy S3 officially announced, release date and pricing still missing

by: Chris SmithJune 12, 2012

C Spire, the regional U.S. carrier formerly known as Cellular South, officially announced today plans to launch Samsung’s flagship handset, the Galaxy S3. C Spire would thus become the nation’s sixth mobile operator scheduled to sell the Galaxy S3 this summer, joining Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular.

Unfortunately, C Spire did not reveal pricing details and actual launch dates for the Galaxy S3 at this time, although we expect pricing to start at $199.99, which is what every other carrier is going to charge for the 16GB Galaxy S3 model purchased with new two-year agreements. It’s not clear yet how many Galaxy S3 [...]

T-Mobile to offer all phones free on Father’s Day weekend?

by: AdrianJune 11, 2012

T-Mobile might not have the snappiest 4G network in the US or the largest number of high-end phones up for sale, but their special offers and discounts are (sometimes) unbeatable. For this year’s Father’s Day, for example, T-Mo is preparing to offer all of the network’s phones completely free of charge, if we are to believe a leaked promo material picked up by the guys at Tmonews.

The phones will be free with two-year carrier agreements, but that’ll still be a very nice deal, at least for some devices.

All of these and many more should go down to $0.00 next week-end, but at least some of them will likely require mail-in rebates. I know what you’re [...]

Galaxy S3 HDMI ‘issues’ appear, new MHL adapter needed

by: Chris SmithJune 11, 2012

The Galaxy S3 is one of the two most interesting Android handsets of the year – the other being the HTC One X – and it’s surely going to be the best sold of the two. But the handset does have one problem, especially if you plan to frequently hook it up to your HDTV.

The Galaxy S3 has a different microUSB port than other Android devices, as the port’s pins have been rearranged. That means the Galaxy S3 will not work with standard MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) adapters, which let users connect smartphones that come with microUSB ports to big-screen TVs.

So if the MHL adapter is a standard device supported by a plethora [...]
