Samsung Galaxy S3 video review


Read our full Samsung Galaxy S3 review. The Galaxy S3 is an excellent smartphone. As we show in this Galaxy S3 video it offers a good design and build quality, despite some small niggles. Samsung has put together an impressive set of hardware resulting in silky smooth performance and extensive software features. Video shot and edited by Dominik Tomaszewski.

The Galaxy S3 handset is available in pebble blue and marble white, and we filmed a white S3. The former has a nice brushed finish while the latter a glossy sheen. Both look nice but we prefer the blue option. Despite the overwhelming use of plastic, the Galaxy S3 feels well made. The Galaxy S3 is a pretty big smartphone, with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen which has an HD resolution of 720 x 1280.

Samsung Galaxy S3 video review

As we show in this exclusive video of the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Super AMOLED technology means colours are bright and punchy while blacks are very black. The Galaxy S3 screen is stunning and comparable in quality to the one found on the HTC One X. It has a high pixel density of 306ppi where individual pixels are not distinguishable offering astonishing levels of detail. Viewing angles are very good; we found reflections in the screen more of a problem.

 Like most modern smartphones the Galaxy S3 comes with dual cameras. The rear facing one is rated at 8Mp and has an LED flash while the front camera is a 1.9Mp shooter which can record HD video at 30fps. It runs Android version 4.0.4 coupled with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface overlay. Samsung has fitted the phone with a whopping 7.9Wh battery promising rival beating battery life.
