Received mine today in white, looks fabulous.

I haven't had the time to try it yet, it is just sitting on the table while I admire it.:)

RE: Galaxy S3

Can't use it yet, it needs a micro simcard.

Have to go to TMobile shop in morning:cry:

Take a pair of scissors to your standard sim, there's plenty of microsim templates online...

T Mobile are only 10 mins away, I would rather go there than risk butchering my sim card.

RE: Galaxy S3

Went to Carphone earlier on to pick up my blue S3 only to be told it has been delayed. They are expecting limited numbers of white next week with the blue expected in 2 to 3 weeks  :cry: . There have been lots of rumours on tinternet for the last week or so about expected delays due to a manufacturing fault with the back covers but some websites thought those who had pre-ordered would recieve their phones as normal.

Think the poor woman at the Carphone shop must of had one hell of a day today with some customers throwing their toys out of the pram. Don't shoot the messenger comes to mind, not her fault the phone is delayed. On the plus side Carphone are throwing in a £75 "entertainment pack" as a sorry for the delay. "It includes music, HD games and apps. Users can enjoy 50 music tracks, worth £50, from the catalogue of millions available on 7digital's mobile website. Users also grab HD games, worth £25 which includes N.O.V.A.2, Order and Chaos Online and The Adventures of Tin Tin, plus AVG Security".

A bit of an embarressment for Samsung with the delay but good to know they are fixing the issue before we get the phone unlike some other manufacturers. I wonder if Samsung will offer us anything extra with the phone as way of an apology for the delay.

Let us know your thoughts on your new toy chudleighpaul.

RE: Galaxy S3

First impression is that it is lightening fast.

But I will need to experiment to get the best from it.:)

RE: Galaxy S3

Hey chudleighpaul, I'm not sure if you've noticed but therr are independent brightness settings for the phone, browser and movie player.

Set these to full mad the colour to "natural" and I think it out performs even the One X when it comes to movie playback :0)

It's also faster than my pc when web browsing. This device is awesome.

RE: Galaxy S3

Thanks for that tip.

I have just tested the satnav and when you arrive at the destination it shows a pic of the first house in the postcode.

Agreed it is awesome:cheer:

RE: Galaxy S3

For photos I'd say that daytime shots are sharper and have better colours and a little cleaner on the s3, but indoor lower light shots have less noise and are generally better on the One X.

For video recording the s3 as it's a lot smoother.

Apart from video, there is not a huge amount in it though.

RE: Galaxy S3

Looks like the S3 has exactly the same camera sensor as the one in the 4S, clicky. Still waiting for my blue S3....come on Samsung :pray:

RE: Galaxy S3

I am very interested in the sound quality having heard that it has a better dac then earlier version. s2 was a huge disappointment despite WHF review which was not accurate according to them in lossless  playback it was on par with 4s which I strongly disagree.
