White Samsung Galaxy S3 Unboxing & Overview

The Galaxy S3 is definitely one of the hottest devices of 2012, and will continue to be the reigning Android flagship come 2013. Samsung’s just started selling the device across the world, and it just went on sale in India. While the maximum retail price in India is closer to the 43,000 INR mark, you can get it for anything between 38-39000 INR in in stores and online.

While Samsung in recent months has followed a policy of not dropping prices quickly, I do expect the retail price of the S3 to settle closer to the 35,000 mark rather than the near the 40,000 it currently is.

Back to the device, its a 4.8″ Super AMOLED display packing, 1.4 Ghz Quad-core processor touting superphone that is just 8.6 mm thick.  There’s also an 8 MP camera, an impressive 2100 mAh battery, NFC and the latest version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) inside. The device was supposed to come out in blue and white, but Samsung’s apparently hit a few production snags with the blue version and you can just buy the white currently, which isn’t really a bad thing.

So if you were to walk into a store and get a Galaxy S3, this is what it would be like. The unboxing video follows:

I will be bring you a ton of S3 coverage in the next few days, but in case you want me to cover something specifically, let me know in the comments section below.

  1. I don’t really like the looks of the phone, but in this video it doesn’t look that bad.

  2. it has become a concern that the screen can easily crack with just a drop on the floor…

  3. Hi,

    I am a proud owner of the S3 on the launch day in India.

    I have a couple of questions.

    1. None of the applications have the option to ‘move to sd card’ highlighted in the application settings screen. My S2 had this feature. Has it been specifically been disabled.
    2. With the screen brightness set to ‘automatic’ my browser operates with much lower brightness. Even disabling/enabling the browser brightness did not help much.
    3. I can only send SMS to a group/max of 10 people. Is this a limitation only with the S3?

  4. Ben, Samsung’s displays despite being Gorilla glass do have a propensity to crack. I’ve seen both the S1 and the Note screens crack with just a fall. However, my S2 did survive a few. I will keep my ear to the ground for similar stories.
