So AT&T sent me the care package below after I reviewed the HTC OneX and signed up for their ItCanWait campaign, which is a campaign against texting and driving. They offered to let me review the new Samsung Galaxy SIII and do a giveaway for one lucky reader. I used the Samsung Galaxy SIII for a month and used the internet, apps, music, camera,etc.
So here you go!
Headphones: I can always use another pair – and I really liked them. They were comfortable and worked well!
USB and charger
Quick Start Guide – which is helpful for those of us who don’t use Samsung products typically, or who aren’t intuitive at figuring out new phones.
I loved the big screen on this. It was great for watching my shows while doing cardio and after I used it for a while I was disappointed in my own phone’s smaller screen. AT&T: 4.8″ HD Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy S III offers a large and crisp picture. The Samsung screen even enhances to HD and 16:9 wider viewing angles that are perfect for e-books, games, video, and more. Plus with eye-tracking technology you can keep your screen active with no more unwanted dimming.
Camera: Obsessed. You can filter the pictures before you take them and it has ‘burst’ speed. AT&T: zero shutter lag using the 8MP camera and Best Photo option. Using the burst shot option, the camera takes 3.3 shots per second and allows you to select the best of eight images taken when Best Photo is turned on.
Connection speed: Obviously this was super fast on loading apps and the internet – it has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. 4G is just the way to go now.
Apps: It has all the same apps that I like to use, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. I actually like the user interface on these apps better than my phone.
Issues: The only issue I had with this phone was that it took me a while to get used to texting or typing on it. I kept hitting the wrong letters, but that is something that I would just have to get used it.
