I’ve finally got my very own — Galaxy S3!!!
I’ve got this for “Free” under a corporate plan – one of the benefits from my 2nd promotion as the Manager in our department. Although this is a phone of my choice, I didn’t expect that one day I’ll be having an opportunity to have this. I didn’t even dream about having Samsung Galaxy S3 when it was launched because it’s quite expensive.
Anyways, to give you a little background about my new phone: It has 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS (upgradable to 4.1 Jellybean), 11 GB internal memory (upgradable up to 64GB via micro SD) and mini-sim enabled. The 8mp back-camera and 1.9mp front-facing camera added the flavour to it’s amazing super AMOLED screen and corning Gorilla glass 2, which enables me to view the full blast of colours of everything I see in the phone. Sound is good as well — compare to my Galaxy Tab 8.9 – or is it because of the headphones that are very helpful on giving you clearer and more dynamic sound? I also love its “design for human” features like the motion sensor for auto-call when you put the phone on your ear, check new top updates or emails by tapping the head of the phone, share files by tapping S3 to other mobile phone and detect device by shaking it.
After a few days of having my Galaxy S3 on hand and watching bunch of fearsome drop test, I bought 2 covers for it: 1 white and 1 dark blue. And since it already has corning gorilla glass, I think I don’t need to buy it a screen protector anymore.
(These cases available at Juan at Your Service for a very affordable price. You can visit their facebook fan page to see the more of their amazing offers. Click here.)
When it comes to performance, I could say that its beermatch is the Smart’s Data plan — fast and reliable here in Antipolo and in Tondo, Manila — but, as you know, I’m still in the process of getting to know my Galaxy S3. I’ll try to share more about it on my next post.
