Here’s an image purporting to be of the Galaxy Note 2’s bezel, and if it’s a fake, it’s a very good one. Taken by a (sharper-than-usual) blurrycam snapper wearing factory-style dust booties, the hardware suggests a chunky, squared-off design for the second-generation phablet that rejects the Galaxy S III’smore curvaceous body. The ruler draped from corner-to-corner jibes with earlier rumors that it would have a slightly expanded 5.5-inch canvas for your S-Pen fun.

Comparing Apple iPhone 4s vs. Samsung Galaxy S III

apple-iphone-4s_vs_samsung-galaxy-SIIIComparing two high end phones like these can be a tricky one so it’s a good idea to be as constructive as possible on the functions. When looking at functions, the foremost ones are video capture, still image sharpness and memory.

Physical Comparisons of Apple iPhone 4s vs. Samsung Galaxy S III

The Samsung Galaxy S III can be wirelessly charged so without plugs and wires. You can of course use a standard USB cable. The Samsung has much more battery power and is removable. The Samsung Galaxy is much lighter in weight and thinner so ergonomically more suitable.

The screen size is bigger than the iPhone 4s. Though users tend to forego the screen size in favour of storage capacity and the iPhone 4s offers 48.0 GB more storage.

Top Photo and Video Feature Comparisons of Apple iPhone 4s vs. Samsung Galaxy S III

There are traces of noise on still images with Samsung Galaxy S III being the slightly sharper candidate. Though, bear in mind, this is not a comparison to HTC One models here, but between two top phone models.

The Samsung has more mega pixels on the camera, 6.3x more and offers 1.5x higher screen resolution. That said, the iPhone 4s offers a dedicated camera button allowing you to snap photos easily.

The Samsung phone uses a technique called ghosting to compensate for a reduction in sharpness. The iphone lacks that effect. The iphone 4s handles white balance better than the Samsung’s denser colour saturation which produces a wider range of vibrant contrasting colours.

The iPhone 4s seems to be best at dealing with low light photos, and also when no flash is used. Such low light photos look more blurred but with much less noise than previous models.

In a nutshell, it should be noted that the Samsung produces sharper images than the iPhone 4s. A video captured on the Samsung phone can be watched on a HDTV through the HDMI input. Downloads are much faster on the Samsung model. Samsung Users can access Adobe Flash in the phone browser.

Both phones produce high quality 1080p HD video. Video footage appears to look lossless for exporting to your video editor on both phones.

Galaxy S3 Crushing Apple’s iPhone In Global Market Sales

 

The Samsung Galaxy S3’s release has seen the Korean-based company extend the gap against Apple and Nokia in the global smartphone sales market. Thanks to the amazingly popular launch of Samsung’s next generation landmark Galaxy S device the company had huge second quarter sales.

Samsung and Apple have been fighting it out in the smartphone sales war for years, and the battle has even resulted in numerous patent lawsuits being filed throughout the world as the two tech giants look to stumble each other up in different regions.

However, thanks for Samsung’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in May, the company has excelled in the sales department across the globe. According to a survey of 41 analysts Samsung is estimated to have sold 50 million smartphone devices in the second quarter of 2012 compared to  Apple’s 30.5 million sales for its infamous iPhone devices.

Samsung has numerous smartphones out on the market and optimizes the Android operating system for its leading smartphones. However, Apple’s core smartphone sales come through just the iPhone 4S, which was released in 2011, and the iPhone 4, which is a year older on the market.

Nokia had reigned at the top of the pile in global smartphone market sales for a massive 14 years previously, but they are now falling behind fast, and both Samsung and Apple are constantly eating away at consumers choosing Nokia.

The impressive sales of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has sparked rumors that Apple is now looking to bring forward its release date for its next generation smartphone, the iPhone 5. It is now believed the device could be released as early as August, although other analysts have suggested a September or October release date is still more likely on the cards. When the iPhone 5 is released it is predicted Apple will see a huge rise in sales that could match if not beat Samsung’s Galaxy S3 demand.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the latest and greatest smartphone from the popular Korean manufacturer. It boasts some of the best smartphone technology out there, particularly in terms of its multimedia credentials. As this is an increasingly common use for smartphone, in this article I will take a closer look at the multimedia features of the device.

With a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, the Galaxy S3 is among the most powerful smartphones in the world and one of only a small number of phones to boast this feature. Although this is an often overlooked feature, the processor makes a massive difference to the multimedia experience. The processor is responsible for many parts of the phone’s performance, but in terms of multimedia, it ensures that graphics run smoothly when playing games, and if there is a lot of action happening on the screen at a fast pace, with a lot of light and colour, a lesser processor may not deliver the same results as it would judder and buffer to cope with the increased workload.

The Galaxy S3 is a fine example of the multimedia download services available on smartphones. Google Play (previously known as Android Market is where you will find a vast library of applications and games, and Samsung Games Hub allows you to download premium games titles which are specifically optimised for the Galaxy S3. These even include some well known console titles like from the likes of EA and Activision with popular titles including Need For Speed and Call Of Duty.

S-Beam and AllShare cast allow you to wirelessly share files like movies and music tracks between devices, while a specially developed Samsung HDMI receiver allows you to mirror the content of the phone’s screen onto a compatible TV in real time.

As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy S3 offers an impressive package of multimedia features, making it one of the best handsets for this kind of user.
