The great debate about this phone so far has been about its lackluster design quality and basically nothing else, people are so blinded by it not looking how they wanted it to look that they’ve seriously over look the most important thing a phone should have, and that’s great software/performance.
Choosing a phone merely on looks, is like dating a really hot girl, but the more time you spend with her, you realize how dull and boring she is when it comes down to having a convo with her, she’s also pretty Meh in bed. While it would be nice to have both a great looking phone and great hardware, we can’t have it all, now can we.
The HTC One X is a beaut, yes, but it’s 2012 and that battery just makes you say “seriously”. I am sure they’ll figure a way to milk more hours out of it, but why not just go with making the battery bigger? No removable battery, this is android, I like my choices, I like knowing I could buy a bigger battery, htc keeps locking their phones. But let me end it there before this become a rant about htc instead of why I want the SIII.
I can’t be too judgmental on a phone whose US variants hasn’t even been shown yet, the US versions usually never looks like the Euro version with the exception of AT&T.
The new features of the SIII has me in awe to the point where I don’t mind not rooting it and keeping it stock, that’s huge for me to say since the longest I’ve ever used stock in 4 years is a combined 3days.
The phone looks beyond smooth and Sammy seems like they put a lot of thought into their features. Take S-Beam, they updated android beam to the point where I see more use for it, you can share just about any and everything, and S-Voice just might be the best thing ever, I don’t like using voice actions but I put some thought into it and was like yess I’ll certainly be using that, at times you just don’t feel like touching your phone and typing and S-Voice helps you with that, waking your phone up just by calling its name and telling it what to do right away, take you sleeping in the middle of the night and you don’t wanna touch your phone because of its bright ass light, you can simply wake up it by calling its name and ask what time it is, it tells you and you go and you go back to sleep without you looking at the phone, how grand is that? And drivers can basically interact with their devices without even touching it.. And let’s talk about memory, 64gb model and you can also use a 64gb sd card, I basically can keep all my files and media content without having to sacrifice them because I need more space, then you add that with added cloud storage with box/dropbox. You’ll even have a pen accessory to add to that.
There’s absolutely no reason for me to not wanna get the SIII and if I let looks fool me, I might be disappointed, but for some reason I see me not being let down by this new software Samsung came up with.
