Is it worth upgrading to the Galaxy S III? Find out by taking a look at our video below!

    It's been a long period of waiting for Samsung fans as well as Android fans but the phone is finally here, available in different regions of the world -- 28 countries to be more specific -- the most anticipated Android phone of the year: the Samsung Galaxy S III. The packaging is a neutral white carton box which resembles last year's Galaxy S II box and inside there's your charger, headphones, buds, cable, battery and literature. The most important part, the Galaxy S III, is the first thing you see when you open the packaging. Check out the video below to see what to expect when you ...

    Despite the delay rumors Samsung went ahead and made the Galaxy S III official today for 28 countries -- and despite today's launch the phone is not quite available yet for many who are waiting for it. However, there was no word of a U.S. launch just yet and we hoped that Samsung has learned from its past mistakes with the Galaxy S II. It appears that the South Korean company did indeed learn, at least according to TJ Kang, SVP Media Services for Samsung, who said that "unlike previous product launches, the time lag will be much more compressed for the Galaxy S III". "So I think it will ...

    The day many have been waiting for has arrived and, despite of several reports from different sources, retailers and e-taliers talking about possible delays for both the Pebble Blue and the White versions, Samsung has officially announced the launch of the Galaxy S III -- the 16GB version. Users in 28 countries should be able to get the phone in the United Kingdom, France, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Europe and the Middle East and Africa. Of course, the U.S. version is late to the show but Samsung has (hopefully) learned from last year's Galaxy S II lesson and will probably do a better job in ...

    When we were in London to meet the Samsung Galaxy S III we noticed that the operation was very smooth, as it should be given the most powerful processor to be found on an Android device. However, Samsung's own TouchWiz UX is also smooth and a great improvement over previous versions and it is now available for other (select Samsung device users, for the moment). Let's start with the predecessor, the Galaxy S II. If you are running a Samsung-based ROM you could try TouchWiz UX on your device. There are two flavors, one with four columns and one with five. Head over to the first source link ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S III is one of those select few devices which really needs no introduction. The only thing bothering most of those who can't wait to get their phone is why can't they get their unit faster. If you are in the U.S. and can't/don't want to wait until the American carriers bring whatever variant of the phone they will (and you don't fancy importing one either) you can now pre-oder it from Amazon. It's a little expensive: $799.99, and that's for the 16GB variant but you will get a SIM-free, unlocked, no-contract phone once it will be released, according to Amazon, on June 1, ...

    The Story of the Samsung Galaxy S III is rather impressive: after months of anticipation there was a great unveiling in London, then the phone got rooted way before hitting the shelves, its shipping ROM got leaked and one of its top features, S Voice, was extracted and made available for other Android-powered smartphones. The community is now laying down another milestone with the release of the first custom ROM for the Samsung Galaxy flagship. Future owners will have to wait at least nine days before getting their hands on the long-awaited device but they will be probably able to flash ...

    Its not unusual for root to be achieved for a device before it's actual in-store or carrier availability but this time we're talking about the most anticipated Android smartphone of the year so far, the Samsung Galaxy S III. Lucky owners will get the phone on May 29 with the rest following one day after (for the International version) and if they're power users they will be able to root the device the moment they receive it. When you get your Galaxy S III (we know you can't wait) head over to the source link to learn more about root. While you're waiting patiently for the Samsung flagship ...

    There was absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind -- that's anyone who is reasonable and follows the industry -- that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be a huge hit. It was, after all, the most anticipated Android smartphone of the year so far! Just how successful it will be on a short-, mid-, and long-term is anyone's guess but the initial numbers looks promising, if the Korea Economic Daily report is to be believed. It appears that around nine million units of the Galaxy S II refresh have been pre-ordered from more than 100 global carriers (not to be confused with customer pre-orders). The ...

    It is quite understandable why people are counting down the days to go until May 30, the day the Samsung Galaxy S III will be officially available in Europe. Carriers, e-tailers and brand stores are collecting pre-orders -- and thanks to all the buzz there is no real shortage of them -- and now Samsung U.K. has great news for the British who pre-ordered their unit from the Samsung Brand Store at Westfield Stratford City. Instead of getting the phone on May 30, the aforementioned brand store will hand out devices the night before the official launch date. It's not a huge advantage but ...

    Although it has been about six month since the Samsung Galaxy Note was debuted we have finally gotten our hands on the long awaited official Ice Cream Sandwich ROM from Samsung. A few days ago we reported that XDA-Developers had posted on the Galaxy Note (GT-N7000) Android Development forum that Germany had received the official ICS update through the Kies software. If you are the lucky few that opted for the international Galaxy Note you will now be able to upgrade your device to the official Android 4.0.3 build. The update comes with a few key features that make using the Galaxy Note ...

    Watching live streams of product announcements is a mixed bag. Depending on your expectations going in, they're either a mild disappointment or a blow-your-face off surprise. Today, for me, it's the latter. After months and months of leaks and a truckload of tech speculation, Samsung today finally took the wraps off the Galaxy S III smartphone, in an orchestra-accompanied ceremony of Olympic proportions. It's easily the most anticipated mobile phone of the year so far, so was it worth the endless months of waiting? Oh yes. Hardware You know what? No. We're not going to run through this the ...

    This is the first in a continuing series of articles on controversial or disputed topics in mobile technology. We're calling it the "Brutally Honest Question Corner." The leaks have transitioned from a few drips to a sizable deluge: the release of the latest in Samsung's popular Galaxy S line, one of the most anticipated Android smartphones ever, seems to be just over the horizon. On the eve of this product launch, Samsung seems to be directing more and more resources to strengthening its branding efforts. And I've never been less interested. Like a lot of gadget lovers, I was first ...

    Today's topic goes way back to the PC days where OEMs would load them up with software that you didn't need, and most users didn't want. The term for this software? "Bloatware". Pocketnow reader Laurentiu sent in the following question: What do you think about built in Apps in Android devices, starting with launchers (Touchwiz, Sense, etc), daily apps like memo takers, voice recorders, email clients, Kies air and the corresponding widgets for these applications. Many refer to them as bloatware, while I find them useful and better integrated with the OS than third party apps. Cheers, ...
