Samsung Galaxy S III Smartphone Review
Manufacturer: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Samsung.
Desktop and notebook computers are slowing being dominated by the smartphone, a portable yet capable electronic device that grows more powerful with each new generation. For users who want to stay productive, or merely connected while away from their desk, the smartphone is proving to be a mobile workhorse. Samsung is a master of portable consumer devices, and a pioneer in the smartphone industry. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Samsung Galaxy S III (model GT-I9300), an ultra-powerful smartphone with 4.8" HD Super AMOLED screen and Google Android 4.1.2 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Featuring a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 SoC, the Samsung Galaxy S3 touts 2GB of integrated system memory and 32GB of built-in storage space. Samsung's 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen is the real attraction for this device, with a 306 ppi pixel density good for 1280x720p resolution.
Google's Android OS is the most popular smartphone operating system on the planet, surpassing Apple's iOS for the iPhone. Samsung effectively combines Google Apps (gapps) with many of their own proprietary features. The list of proprietary features is quite long since Samsung has taken to naming each and every function on their phone (ie: Smart Alert, which is when the phone vibrates upon receiving a message), so this article will concentrate on the most significant innovations.
