The Galaxy S3 is a beast in terms of speed and power. It doesnot stop at giving you a madness of features, but also holds the muscle power to snap at them. Check out the performance scores below and you’ll know that in almost every bench-marking test the Galaxy S3 trumps every one of them.
The 2100mAh battery lasts us for around two days of heavy usage, and moderate usage of switching on connectivity options when needed got us into the third day – a great feat for such a high-power device.
The HTC One X is probably the biggest rival with a better body and comparable display and interface. It’s the life of the non-removable battery that holds back the One X really.
Another horse is the brand-new LG Optimus 4x with almost same muscle but with a full-HD screen. Others include the Meizu MX, Xperia S and Huewai Ascend D.
Samsung gives the Galaxy S3 everything they could – style, design, features, power, speed, battery life – everything! The Galaxy S3 succeeds in most of them. Let’s see some pros and cons –
- Great slim design, good build material, removable battery
- Enough horsepower to give a real horse a competition
- Insane collection of feature goodies
- Very good battery life
- Very good camera, video recording
- Build material might look plasticky to layman
Price is not really a con as the Galaxy S3 is targeted at the upper crest, but the Galaxy S3 leaves no stone unturned to set a new standard with the magnificent Galaxy S3 and now they can sit back in comfort to see others racing to keep up with it.
