Android Authority smartphone buying guide: June 2012

by: Brandon SobottaJune 9, 2012

This month’s buyer’s guide brings something different to Android Authority.

We have rolled together all the US mobile networks in one place, and have selected only the best phones for you. We will also be covering rumored or soon to be released phones, in case what you find below is not quiet to your liking. Let’s kick it!

Verizon

Choosing a phone from Verizon for the June Buyer’s Guide was difficult. All Big Red’s top of the line phones date back from the end of 2011. That’s a stark contrast with the other carriers, who have new flagship phones on the shelf right now. Although the phones from late last year are no slouchers [...]

Computex 2012: Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Asus Padfone vs Samsung Galaxy S2 (video)

by: Bams SadewoJune 9, 2012

Having trouble choosing between 2012’s Phone of the Year candidate Samsung Galaxy S3 and the shape-shifting Asus Padfone?

Check out the quick comparison video below to see how the two smartphones stack up against each other. To make things even more interesting, we’ve also thrown last year’s best-selling Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 into the mix, so make that a three-way visual comparison.

The red hot Samsung Galaxy S3 is the more attractive offering compared to the two. But for those who like the idea of a device within a device (within a device), the Asus Padfone should make for one worthy purchase. The complete package of the Padfone will cost you [...]

Sorry, no free 50GB Dropbox storage for Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T and Verizon

by: Bams SadewoJune 9, 2012

If one of the many reasons you’ve pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T or Verizon was the free 50GB online storage offer from Dropbox, prepare to be disappointed. According to a moderator on Dropbox’ forum, the two carriers have apparently opted out of the 2-year free cloud storage deal that Samsung announced at the phone’s unveiling last month.

There are many possible motives as to why AT&T and Verizon are depriving future owners of Galaxy S3 of their free cloud storage. Perhaps the two are worried about the repercussions of having millions of customers syncing data simultaneously and how it would affect their networks. Perhaps they are planning to [...]

Vodafone UK finally starts shipping Pebble Blue Galaxy S3s, only 16 GB models for the time being

by: AdrianJune 8, 2012

Samsung had huge problems with the worldwide release of the S2 last year, needing several months to get the phone in stores across the five continents. Fortunately, the issues have disappeared with the new Galaxy S3 and we’re hoping to see the new flagship smartphone get from Europe and Asia to the US in less than a month.

Unfortunately, Sammy has still encountered some more minor issues with the phone’s distribution, and was forced to only offer the white 16 GB version in many markets. The 32 GB model has only started shipping in a couple of markets around the globe, while the Pebble Blue version’s shipments (both in 16 and 32 GB) have been delayed due to “production [...]

Superfine Galaxy S3 mod upgrades camera, boosts video recording to 30 Mbps

by: AdrianJune 7, 2012

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is impressive in many areas, but the phone’s camera isn’t exactly regarded as groundbreaking. Then again, we’ve seen the shooter performing pretty much at the same level as the ones featured by Apple’s iPhone 4S or HTC’s One X, so we personally don’t have many complaints about it.

If, however, you want to take the 8-megapixel’s video recording to new heights, we have some very good news for you. HyperX, an independent custom ROM developer who’s been handling several cool, functional mods in the past, has come up with an S3 software tweak that takes the phone’s camera and makes it… simply irresistible.

The S3 exclusive mod, available for [...]

U.S. Galaxy S3 sales ban already requested; Apple brings up the same patent it used to block the HTC One X

by: Chris SmithJune 7, 2012

In early May, soon after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S3, certain reports claimed that the company’s legal counsel had a hand in the device’s design, a design that was heavily contested at the time by certain tech blogs and even potential buyers. It was suggested that the Galaxy S3 is lawsuit-proof, as its design would not infringe any of the patents Apple could use to attack the handset.

Apple and Samsung have been involved in a huge patent-based legal fight that spanned across four continents, with the two companies suing and counter-suing each other in 10 different markets. There are well over 30 lawsuits between the two at this time, and [...]

Galaxy S3 now up for pre-order at Bell Canada, only the 16 GB model for the time being

by: AdrianJune 7, 2012

Samsung’s Galaxy S3 was made official in Canada exactly one week ago, at which point we found out the phone’s pricing and exact release date. We also expected to see Canadian carriers taking pre-orders for the S3 and, while some (Rogers and Telus) did exactly so, Bell and SaskTel were left out of the mix.

The waiting is fortunately now over for Bell customers, who can finally make sure they have a cozy place in (front of the) line for Samsung’s new flagship phone. That’s the good news of our today’s report, while the bad news (yeah, there’s bad news, too) is that the 32 GB model is not yet up for pre-order.

You can therefore either go for the 16 GB version of [...]

One X vs Galaxy S3: HTC explains why its smartphone is better

by: Chris SmithJune 7, 2012

The recently announced Galaxy S3 has only one worthy Android rival out there, the One X, although from what we’ve seen so far, it’s Samsung’s phone that’s generating more pre-orders and sales than HTC’s handset.

Obviously, HTC isn’t too happy about it. In fact, the Taiwanese Android device maker decided to lower its Q2 outlook after taking into consideration the low European demand and the HTC EVO 4G LTE and One X delays caused by the U.S. Customs across the pond.

To counter the negative effects on sales the Galaxy S3 may have, HTC apparently created some “special packs” for  HTC sales teams, which explain why the HTC One X is [...]

by: Chris SmithJune 7, 2012

Samsung announced on Monday that its 2012 Android flagship smartphone will be available from five U.S. carriers this month, with prices starting at $199. Soon after that, we saw Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and U.S. Cellular announce their own Galaxy S3 versions alongside availability details for each carrier.

In case you’re interested in buying the Galaxy S3 in the US but you’re not sure what carrier to pick, then we got you covered, as we’ll tell you everything you need to know before making the purchase.

The Galaxy S3 offered by the five carriers is identical to the international version design-wise, which is [...]

Verizon customers, you might not get your Samsung Galaxy S3 until July 6

by: Bams SadewoJune 6, 2012

You’ve seen the leaked pictures of Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 to help quench your gadget thirst before. But amidst the good news that you’d be able to pre-order your Samsung Galaxy S3 from the carrier starting today, on June 6, you may want to dial down the excitement a bit as the phone apparently won’t be delivered to your doorstep until next month.

Droid-Life has heard from several sources that Verizon would only ship the Galaxy S3 no early than July 6, with some even mentioning that July 9 would be the delivery date. Especially for the latter, it appears there’s a pictorial evidence to prove it, as you can see below.  The date seems to have been confirmed by [...]
