Samsung Galaxy S III - early thoughts

I just got hands on with the new Samsung Galaxy S III and it’s a pretty nice phone that’s for sure! Definitely light to hold, brilliant screen and responsive – just what you’d expect from a quad core CPU!

Of course I wasn’t too thrilled with the TouchWiz running on top of it, but that was to be expected. If you want pure Android, stick with a Galaxy Nexus.

If I was in the market for a new phone it would be hard to choose between the HTC One X, this phone or the Galaxy Nexus.

The Galaxy S III would most likely need a protective case, it was very plastic – but all phones suffer from that these days.

The one thing that impressed me more than the phone itself was the secrecy and then simultaneous Australian launch on all carriers this week. Samsung have done well to minimise the time between when the phone was announced and when it hit the shops. It was almost an Apple-like launch dare I say it…
