Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III Hands On

The Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III is officially unpacked on last night in Malaysia, One Utama Hotel Kuala Lumpur. I am lucky enough to be one of the guy who manage to hands on on the device before it officially on sales.

* Samsung Galaxy S III with touchWiz *
* Back cover is pretty finger print magnet *
* 8.6mm thickness. Not the thinnest phone but still sleek *

I did a short video on it. Check it out. Do note that it is a hands on video and, yea i miss out alot important info. I dont it quite rush and it is my first time did such video, kinda nervous ;/

Anyway to recap Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III specification :

  • Android OS v4.0.4 with TouchWiz.

There is no internet around and sadly i couldn't conduct test such as S Voice and web browsing. But what really impressed me are the camera. Being 8mp shooter, i gotta admit it has rich color and sharp image.

Whats more? Zero shutter lag that make u spam like nobody business, 3.3fps when in burst rate. Same goes to front facing camera, it has zero shutter lag and that tiny 1.9mp sensor has ability to record 720p video.

The Pop Up Play is good for people who always love to watch video. Well probably not me. I am those kind watch video on phone once in a blue moon. Do notice that the TouchWiz is pretty smooth compare to other Samsung model. Thumb up to Samsung for finally tweak and enhance their UI.

Nevertheless, Samsung galaxy S III indeed a great phone with highest specification ever u can find. I wish i could get a unit from Samsung or Nuffnang so that I could give a full review on it. Who know? So stay tune on my site k? ;P
