When Facebook came out with their Facebook Home announcement, I was intrigued. I am a pretty active Facebook user, so I figured this was an update/app/whatever I could get behind. Since then, we've waxed poetic about Facebook Home on many occasions. We've even demonstrated how to install in on non-approved devices worldwide. Now, I've had some quality snuggle time with Facebook Home on my Galaxy S III. I installed in on Friday, just before the Pocketnow Live and used it up to, and including the time I'm writing this. And then I planned to remove it and never look back. Facebook Home brings ...

Year after year, rumors surface that this is the year Apple introduces the “Cheap iPhone” and year after year, Apple does. They introduce discounted pricing on last year's iPhone. And they sell, and sell and sell. Maybe not at the rate at which the new iPhones sell. But they sell because they're still really good phones. Not the latest and greatest, not the sexiest, but they're still very good. This is the position at which Samsung finds themselves this Thursday. With the Galaxy IV set to be unveiled in just a hair over 36 hours, it is time for the GSIII to move on to the next phase ...

Some were put off a bit by the revelation that Nokia's optical image stabilization demo video was faked, but today we see a video on YouTube where "TheUltimat111" mounts both a Nokia Lumia 920 prototype and a Samsung Galaxy S III to a radio controlled car. He starts video recording on both then drives the car around while filming the whole process with another camera. After getting some sufficient movement from the radio controlled car, he dismounts the two phones and then plays back the video on a table with no cuts or editing in order to show the real on-screen difference in the ...

The Samsung Galaxy SIII continues its world domination, this time by releasing a special version of the phone for Verizon. Like its siblings before it, the packaging of the Verizon version of the super-phone is a neutral white box which resembles the one last year's Galaxy S II came in. Inside the box you'll find your charger, headphones, buds, cable, battery, manuals, and the Galaxy S III itself. Play the video below to see what to expect when you open up yours and make sure you stay tuned to Pocketnow so you don't miss out on any of our upcoming Galaxy S III coverage!

That's right, it's another review of the Samsung Galaxy S III. This time we've got the AT&T version. It's very similar to the Sprint version and shares many software features with the international version, so instead of reiterating everything from those reviews, we're going to try to cover a few more things that you might not have heard about already and of course we'll give you a different perspective. What's more, AT&T sent us the "pebble blue" version of their Galaxy S III, so if you're sick of the white version you're in for a treat. Read on for our full review of the ...

While reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S III, and taking a look at the phone's display, we focused our critique on the use of PenTile subpixels, leading to blockier-looking graphics than we'd see with a traditional RGB arrangement. While that's a definite problem, the guys over at DisplayMate decided to take an even closer look at the GS3's screen, performing some very technical measures of its output, and comparing those figures against readings from the GS2 and original Galaxy S. They ended up with a whole bunch of useful observations, with one of the most interesting being a "poor" score ...

The Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 4S are very different phones. On paper, the Galaxy S III has a stronger spec sheet: it has a larger, higher resolution display, a larger battery, and it has a quad core CPU (if we're talking about the international variant of the device). On the other hand, the iPhone 4S is without question one of the best-selling smartphones of all time, thanks in part to its handsome design (which is really starting to feel dated), great performance, and awesome camera. We're also at a strange point in the release cycle: Samsung's Galaxy S III is the company's ...
